Okay, i will leave the comments about your apparent anti-knowledge of ballistics to the people who are actual firearms experts and/or soldiers.
Still, your stupidity is so apparent that i can debunk the rest of it.
To reply to all of your identical dogpile complaints at once, I'll simply cover the basics that you all seem to be missing.
But we will see that you will actually not adress anything and just rephrased your earlier piece of mindcrap.
If they don't penetrate, they don't kill, end of story.
We have told you how even a non-penetrating bullet can kill. While it has less KE, it also applies it to a smaller area
(whoops, i guess i commented on ballistics after all - eh, who cares).
Having tested this one when I was briefly given free reign over a friend's equipment, I can tell you a 5.56*45mm will transfer ~400j of kinetic energy and less than a newton second of momentum, about the power of a casual back-hand, over an area about the size of a diamond ring.
Soo - you base this on shooting some kind of firearm a couple of times?
By that logic, I am a firearms expert, too - after all, i have fired several weapons on my own, too.
If that constituted a fatal injury, I would of been far more reluctant to piss off my mother when I was a kid.
Wait - WHAT?
Honestly - that's just FUCKED UP.
Once again, a thrown rock does more damage than a ricocheting bullet due to sheer momentum.
Well - yes. So-fucking-what. That doesn't mean that the bullet is harmless or less deadly.
I can bash in your skull with a bloody (then, literary) club, too.
This is true, but you only need to damage a tiny bit of the heart of put a tiny hole in the aorta as well, and those will kill you faster than loss of brain function.
No it won't.
We have explained why a brain injury is far more serious in detail. You can't just ignore it.
As for what that means: a minute after getting shot thorugh the heart, you've dead. A minute after the aorta has a hole in it, you're dead. A minute after your brain has a hole in it, you're braindead, but your heart is likely still breating unless the modella oblangata is damaged, you should still be twitching unless the cerabellum or the brainstem is damaged.
Guess what - being braindead is the DEFINITION of dead. You dumbwit.
Finally, upon checking my own data, headshots actually have as much resultant hypoxia (that and destroyed tissue are my definition of real, physical damage) as the shots to the liver, and they both operate through blood loss in this regard, carrying a lot of blood and being very stiff, making it so shockwaves (be they from a punch or a bullet passing through) cause many more ruptures than it would in more flexible tissue.
So WHAT. You can survive without your liver for some time. The liver is also quite good at regenerating.
While you might die from blood loss, it won't immedeately affect your combat performace (shock and blood loss aside, which you state is equal).
However, being hit in the brain has an enormous
chance of doing so - because the brain is actually important.
Also, the aorta contains as far more blood than the brain, and since it is all one big blood vessel it's going to leak faster. A single 9mm bullet through it will leave you dead by exsanguination in about a minute, while one through the heart will leave you dead in ~20 seconds.
And a shot trough the head can kill you instantly.
As for where I get my information, I have actually gotten the opinions of firearms instructors, trauma surgeons and soldiers, and their comments on the matter pretty much come down to "never aim for the head."
So you don't actually have evidence.
Tell me - why should a trauma surgeon bother talking to a snot-nose highschooler?
If you get that from actual medical papers - cite them.
They come down to different reasons, the instructors stating the relative ease of hitting the chest, the surgeon stating the inhumane nature of headshots (which might of just been bias because he couldn't do anything about it) and the soldiers (including a marine) stated more faster kills when hitting the heart than the brain. (That is to say they die faster, not they drop faster, as they're both pretty much instant in that regard)
So one of them is bloody fucking irrelevant, the other just states that it is easier to hit and the latter - well, we have actual soldiers here telling us it's otherwise, so i will rather believe them.
-You have stated NOTHING NEW.
-You have presented NO EVIDENCE except "some anonymous guy told me so"
Go back to school and learn how to do an actual discussion. A fucking 15-year old should be able to do better than you.
As far as my age and the age of my children, that is totally irrelevent
Yes it is. So, why do you post it?
'll tell you right now that your math is screwed up because my elder daugter is younger than that, but considering my son just turned 13, we're still stuck with the same issue. Yes, I had a kid when I was twelve, (although I didn't know it until a year after he was born) and yes, my financial problems are directly related to having 3 kids.
If that's actually true, i am sorry for you.
However, i can not actually believe anything you say right away - your track record is just too bad.
(and a divorce, which took my elder kids from me, prompting me to go and adopt my current child, and getting laid off when the economy went to shit, and so on.)
This, however, is as damn stupid as every other of your decisions.
So you already have to pay for three (2?) children - and while you are struggling financially, you decide to adopt another one?
Tell me - how are you planning to pay for college?
It was a suprise, however, to find out last year that my middle child was pregnant, especially considering her age at the time, but more suprising was that she did it on purpose.
I would not be surprised.
Her father was obviously too stupid for birth controll. The first one is an understandable (given your young age) addicent, but the second time? Blatant idiocy.
And YES, i AM NOT polite.
Well, for your argument - it's just shit.
For your personal - i call it like i see it. And if it is true, you really, really need to wake up. Because your real life seems to be as messed up as your fantasies.
If that story is true, i hope you manage to get a grip on your life ASAP. Despite my justified insults, i do not wish you any harm - tough you owe me some brain bleach - and especially not your kids.
