5.56 Timeline


We’ve all seen these people. dying of some lung disease or other but still they ain’t going to give up their true love of smoking.

A 61-year-old North Carolina woman was killed when she smoked while hooked up to an oxygen tank, according to a report.

Belinda Coble was smoking a cigarette around 8 a.m. Tuesday as oxygen was being administered at her home in Zebulon, 20 miles northeast of Raleigh, news station WNCN reported.

The cigarette caused her oxygen tank to ignite, which resulted in an explosion, authorities said. Yea. my Dad was on oxygen the last few years before he died. And there was a no smoking and flammable sign stuck all over everything. Who knew flames and oxygen aren’t a good mix?

Her husband was asleep when the incident occurred, but called 911 when the blast and smoke alarm woke him, the outlet reported. He then attempted to put out the fire.

Coble was pronounced dead when authorities arrived, WNCN reported

Hey, at least she died doing what she loved. Killing herself by smoking.

I ‘m no car guy. don’t care about what the specs are, or engine size or if the beeeberjab increases the flabbergig. Yes I managed a detail/body ship for years but I only fixed there outside looks. I never cared about what makes them tick and all that crap. That said, I still think this is cool. Not so much because of the car. It’s that something like this can still happen in these days of the near complete authority of the never blinking eye of the sate. The logistics and tech that went in to evading the heavy hand of The King’s Men.

Just look at some of what it took to pull this off. Not shown is the roof mounted IR camera. There is much applicable here for our certain way of thinking.

Read all about what it took and the magnificent bastards that pulled it off.


Cambodian Shooting Range

Now this is some good stuff. One of the fellows over at B-arfcom shared a link to this shooting range in Cambodia. It had some interesting pictures of its European clients.

Ever wanted to shoot an AR-47/AK-15 chambered in .22 long rifle on full auto? You can in Cambodia!.

Even better, you can fire a RPG. Rumor has it they will let you shoot it at a goat or cow. I have seen them letting renters shoot them at old cars on youtube.

And look at those reasonable prices. Owners of the range must be retired US fudds who used to spend all their spare time at gun shows.

Go check it out if you are a gunless euro-dork vacationing in Cambodia.
