This week's FRIDAY FLICK doesn't have much in the way of quotable dialoge, but I think it's pretty poignant. "General Woodbridge is waiting for the 'Go Ahead' from the President. I'm waiting for the 'Go Ahead' from General Woodbridge. And you are waiting for the 'Go Ahead' from me."
To that end, this trauma doctor from the Australian Army explains why he'd rather get shot with an AK-47 than an M4, based upon the kinetics of the round fired, in this case a Russian 7.62x39 versus the American designed 5.56mm. And if you plan on heading over to fight ISIS directly, the guys at Tracking Point have some good news for you. Now for those of us who more or less live in small, and for lack of any other word I'm going to say insignificant, places, I don't think there's much to worry about. But for you big city fuckers? I don't think it's altogether unreasonable to imagine this may be coming to a theater near you, especially since the guy in charge doesn't seem to give a flying fuck, and coupled with the fact that Christmas is about six weeks away, perhaps this might be an opportune time to point out DPMS is offering a $200 rebate on their ARs. In fact, there are a few different models the rebate is valid with, so you've got some wriggle room to really pick your poison. And as a hammer isn't all that useful without nails, it would always behoove you to keep some .223/5.56 handy before the next inevitable ammo drought hits.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Through either heat or suction, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place for five to fifteen minutes.
