The term prone means to lie on bed or ground in a position with chest downwards and back upwards. In competitive shooting, the prone position is the position of a shooter lying face down on the ground. It is considered the easiest and most accurate position as the ground provides extra stability. It is the starting position in three positions events. Many video games (particularly first-person shooters) allow the player character to go into the prone position.
As it gets harder and harder to keep up with Herman Cain scandals these days, MC Hammer helps break it down for us.

Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. EMS has received increasing attention in the last few years, because it has the potential to serve as: a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes; a rehabilitation and preventive tool for partially or totally immobilized patients a testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo; a post-exercise recovery tool for athletes.] The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes on the skin in direct proximity to the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses mimic the action potential coming from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. German company Ostimex GmbH produces several high quality models to choose from, such as the VITA Tronic 410S.
Radio towers are tall structures designed to support antennas for telecommunications and broadcasting, including television. They are among the tallest man-made structures. Masts are sometimes named after the broadcasting organisations that use them, or after a nearby city or town. The Warsaw Radio Mast was the world's tallest supported structure on land, but it collapsed on August 8, 1991, leaving the KVLY/KTHI-TV mast as the tallest. The steel lattice is the most widespread form of construction. It provides great strength, low weight and wind resistance, and economy in the use of materials. Lattices of triangular cross-section are most common, and square lattices are also widely used.
Hey Ernie- I saw your comments about transporting a handgun through New York. While I'm sure you're disassembling your firearm in an abundance of caution, the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) has a Safe Passage provision. It states that you can't be jailed for transporting a firearm through a state with stricter control laws, as long as you are actively passing through (ie, you can stop for food and gas), that the weapon is unloaded, and that the weapon and ammunition are not readily accessible. Given New York's attitude towards handguns, I may be tempted to do what you're doing just to cover my ass. Usual disclaimers apply, IANAL and all that. Ian
Ern, I am stationed here in Hawaii. Here is a link to a lawsuit over concealed carry. It was filed in August 2011. Oh, I was stationed in NY at Fort drum as well. There is a concealed carry permit that is issued by local sheriff's or police. Chris
First, thanks for making my afternoons better. In my home state of South Dakota, a concealed carry permit is ridiculously easy to obtain. In defense, most South Dakotans are raised in a hunting and shooting environment. That doesn't mean we don't have our share of idiots, but it cuts down a little on the "accidents." My main purpose in writing, however, is the question of whether you think former military members should be able to "fast track" a CC permit. I go back and forth on the subject. I remember well what the USMC taught me about firearms, but I look back at some of the men I served with and think to myself that we are much better off if some of those guys never see a firearm outside of a very controlled environment. Kinda wanted your thoughts and maybe those of your readers. Thanks again! Wes
In an ideal world, that is true. The Federal Peaceable Journey Law is as follows: "18 USC Sec. 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms: Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console."
Here's what I was told by a New York State Trooper, over the phone: "Our orders are to arrest any person in posession of a firearm, regardless of the Federal statute, and let the courts sort it out." Plus technically, I'm not travelling through New York, but to New York. And As far as I know, the only locales that completely any kind of concealed carry are Illinois and Washington DC, and the latter is being sued as well.
As for prior military service qualifying for a fast track? I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Should they get preferential treatment in the processing of the applications? Fuck no, wait in line just like everyone else. Should their military service qualify them as having firearms training? Yes, absolutely. I will of course qualify that by saying when I went through Chair Force basic training some 500 years ago, I wasn't required to fire a handgun at all. In fact, I spent maybe an hour or two, handling an M-16. The first hour going over basic firearm safety and the second shooting at the range. Once you qualified, that was it, you were done. And I didn't touch any firearm the entire remainder of my time in service, but I never deployed either. Now as for mental stability, that's a different animal altogether; that's still governed by the ol, "adjudicated as mental defective" rule.
Being the more pragmatic of the superpowers, in 1961 the Soviets decided to get all of their reckless endangerment out of the way with one test -- the Tsar Bomba. Rather than trying to keep pace with America's increasingly precise guided missile delivery systems, Russia's solution was to build and test a bomb that was so fucking big that aim literally didn't matter. The Tzar Bomba was so impractically big that creating a parachute to slow its descent, disrupted the Soviet textile industry. If you're wondering why they needed a parachute in the first place, it's because no matter how high you dropped it from, the resulting explosion would reach up into the sky and disintegrate your plane unless you gave yourself some kind of head start. In fact, the bomb was originally supposed to be twice as potent as it ended up being, but they realized that it would be impossible to drop such a bomb from an airplane without killing everyone aboard. The scaled-down version of the bomb was still big enough to cause a fireball that was seen 600 miles away, meaning if it was dropped over Manhattan, you would have been able to watch New York City burn from Virginia. Windowpanes would have been broken down through South Carolina. Even though they dropped Tsar Bomba over a deserted area in the Arctic Circle, wooden houses were destroyed and stone houses had their roofs blown off hundreds of miles away. The shock wave was so extreme that even with the parachute giving them a 20-mile head start, the plane that dropped it was knocked into a free fall for a half-mile before catching itself and continuing to get the fuck out of Dodge. Tsar Bomba turned heads worldwide. The insane cost of producing it and everyone's terrified expressions combined to make it the biggest bomb anyone has ever dropped.
Hey Ernie, Found this little gem: Why you don't want your mistress and wife to pick out your headstone, and thought you'd like it. I hope my wife and mistress never meet. Although I've been following you since the stick figure days and thought you posted this once before, I searched the picture archives for a bit and didn't find it. Anyway you may have a bunch more followers since then and they'll enjoy it too. This year finds me a little more financially stable so I just doubled what I sent last year to LBEH. You are the kick ass god of the internet. Keep it up. John
Hey Big E, Just a quick comment on the black-rimmed glasses pic you posted today. I immediately thought of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew. Made me laugh... John
Nilla is a brand owned by Nabisco that is most closely associated with its line of wafer biscuits. The name is a shortened version of vanilla, a flavor common to all Nilla-branded products (Nilla wafers have been flavored with synthetic vanillin since their introduction. Nilla wafers are round wafers that are often eaten with milk as a snack. "Nilla wafer" is used colloquially as a genericized trademark for similar products. The brand was registered in the United States in 1968, having been first used in late 1967.
Even though 2011 isn't even through yet, we have already had to deal with more hassles in sports than any fan would ever want to deal with. The NFL gave us a scare but ended its' lockout at the last minute while the NBA had to cancel several games until an agreement could be made, and one should be made within the next few days. That is old news, it is time to look ahead into the next year, 2012. Next year will be a huge year for sports, the Summer Olympics are set to take place in London. How about we take a glimpse into the future and take a look at some of the sexiest female athletes on tap for a big year in sports. Some of them you might already know, others you might be hearing about for the first time. Either way, here are the 25 sexiest athletes to watch for in 2012.
A cooler, or portable ice chest, is an insulated box used to keep food or drink cool. Ice cubes are most commonly placed in it to help the things inside stay cool. Ice packs are sometimes used, as they either contain the melting water inside, or have a gel sealed inside that stays cold longer than plain ice (absorbing heat as it changes phase). They are usually made with interior and exterior shells of plastic, with a hard foam in between. They come in sizes from small personal ones to large family ones with wheels. Disposable ones are made solely from polystyrene foam (such as is a disposable coffee cup) about 2 cm or one inch thick. Most reusable ones have molded-in handles; a few have shoulder straps.
Problem: You want to see 200 people get hurt, but you only have 8 minutes. Solution: Fail Compilation November 2011. Lots of Russians this month, too.
A plastic cup is a disposable cup made out of plastic. It is most commonly used as a container to hold beverages. Plastic cups come in a variety of colours, textures and sizes. Plastic cups are often used for gatherings where it would be inconvenient to wash dishes afterward, due to factors such as location or number of guests. Plastic cups can be used for storing most liquids, but hot liquids may melt the material. Most plastic cups contain a resin identification code which can be seen by inverting the cup and reading the numerical value printed on the bottom. Most plastic cups are designed for single uses and then disposal or recycling. A life cycle inventory of a comparison of paper and plastic shows environmental effects of both with no clear winner. Production of one plastic cup emits 135 pounds of green house gases.
