What goes up must come down.

Unless it reaches escape velocity

Thanks for that. That's cheered me up no end! Do I hear the diminishing swish of a silken cape?

Makes you proud that Britain is the fifth biggest arms exporter in the world.........



We can personally claim we Darwined 5 in this incident alone.

Fatima "So after the ceremony, speeches and all that do we go straight into the first dance, babe?"
Mohammed "No my beloved bride to be, a little voice is telling me that all guests should be allowed to bring automatic weapons to the do and we all blat off a full magazine. Then the dancing and stuff. What could go wrong?"

The Emperor Mong "Bwahahahas" and exits stage left.

Shocking

(At least, I think that's what Connery's Bond said, after bunging the electric fire into the tart's bathtub and zapping the duty heavy)

And, yes - I have indeed just seen Skyfall

maths don't quite tally. 25 divided by 5 is 5 - but that's an equal share in the number of deaths. That would make us joint first biggest arms exporter with 4 other nations, but if we're 5th biggest...

Does anyone know of an incident where someone was hit by ammunition that had returned to earth after johnny foreigner blatted the sky? If it has spent it's energy and returns to whence it came what speed is it doing and what force is it going to hit someones bonce with. Assuming 7.62,5.56 or 9mm?

It would return with enough speed and force to make your eyes water!

Very slightly less than the muzzle velocity. It would deffinately sting, though probably only for a very short time.

Zetra stadium, New Year's Eve 95/96: the Sarajevo skyline at midnight, alive with tracer - mostly 12.7mm - going more-or-less-straight up

The Torville and Dean rink (or what was left of it), heaving with pissed-up squaddies. Who for the most part stayed in place, even after 2 rounds returning to earth struck sparks off the overhead superstructure. Nil cas, thank ****.

I made my excuses and left, at that point.

So much for anecdote: but there are serious studies with pukka statistics for civ cas as a downhill consequence of masturbatory gunfire.

Sorry: apparently I meant 'celebratory'.

Clearly that is technical language for something only ******* with guns would do.
