The overall story really flailed around as the later seasons went on (IIRC during a writers’ strike is when there was a lot of issues), but ‘33’- the first episode of the first season is so fantastic I still remember it distinctly.

The style, tone, and acting of BSG really kept the show intriguing even if the plot went in circles sometimes.

Everything here is “baby’s first SovCit script” this is all basic scripting that I’ve seen hundreds of times in videos.

The reason the judge probably physically reacted is because they’ve seen it too, and are pre-emptively frustrated.

There are certainly a few identifiable patterns.

You do have the deadbeats who’ve exhausted all legitimate ways to avoid consequences. You see this not just in child support cases, but people who are looking at losing their driver’s licenses. They have no legitimate way to wiggle out of the consequences, and they don’t accept the consequences, so they will try any Hail Mary crazy play.

Then you’ve got the slightly smarter cynics. These aren’t true believers, but people who intentionally waste time. The plan is to be so frustrating that the court gives up rather than continue to waste resources on a low level case. These people also may be trying to be so frustrating that the judge or cops lash out and do something that actually does violate the person’s rights. Just because somebody is obnoxious, they still have rights, which is why judges will sometimes allow these people to go on and on.

Then you’ve got the people who are naturally contrarian arguers. They’ll argue about anything, anywhere, and use the most troll logic possible because all they care about is leaving the other side speechless. This is your Kim Blandino type, who will argue to the point of overturning decisions even when it’s in their favor.

Then you’ve got the gurus. They may or may not be true believers. A lot of them will intentionally get a court case going so that they can spin the results for their followers.

Then at the end, you’ve got the true believers. They might come sliding in from any of the above categories, or they might just have been grabbed by the notions of Sovcits and run with them.

The repetition of carriages gives this picture such a surreal quality. Great shot.

Yeah, from a restaurant chosen for being walking distance from my hotel on a trip. The quality overall was good if not standout, but the highlight was the choice of about 6 different BBQ sauces at the table.

Have you ever wanted to unscrew the fuze from a dudded aircraft bomb or artillery round, but you wanted to do it from far away?

This do that.

It’s 30% less cursed than the alternative tool.

9 out of 10 times it’s fine.

The other version is a mechanical impact wrench. Activated by repeatedly yanking on the rope with full body strength. Both versions of the tool get fitted onto the fuze first like in the photo.

I wouldn’t worry about it.

Scorpion rocket launcher. (This one is legitimately neat. YES, the designers know what backblast is, and the design redirects it to the side and away from the shooter. NO, the launcher is not permanently attached to the M16, it fixes using the bayonet lug and goes on and off just as quickly.)

It was developed as one of many proposed weapons to fill the U.S. Army’s desire for a squad level weapon that could be fired from inside a building, and packed more anti-armor punch than a 40mm.

Think about the time period and planners thinking about how to stop hypothetical hoards of BMPs rolling through West Germany.

This, along with other weapons, weren’t adopted because the Army pivoted doctrine away from focusing on new squad level weapons that could damage IFVs, to larger weapons like the TOW that could take out MBTs. The change in thinking traded lightweight and abundance organically to infantry on the move, for better performance per system.

M113 (Gavin) fitted with M5 Modular Crowd Control Munitions (MCCM). The MCCMs intentionally use the same bodies as Claymore mines for an intimidation factor. The MCCM works similarly to a Claymore, except with a much lower powered charge and rubber balls instead of metal.

The vehicle was meant for military prison control. If a prison riot was getting out of hand, the vehicle could roll up and let off a broadside.

“Rifleman’s Assault Weapon”.

Documentation is pretty spotty. The publicly available stuff tends to be corporate marketing material which is written by people who might not fully understand the technical aspects and/or are fudging or intentionally simplifying.

The overview is that it’s a rifle launched multi-mode munition for the M16.

Took my freshly re-cobbled together computer to local computer guy after an upgrade with hand-me-down parts. He asked what was wrong and I said there was an alarm for the CPU fan, and that I’d torn the case open and hooked a second fan into the CPU fan connection and it also didn’t work, and the I plugged the CPU fan into a different connection and got it working, so by elimination I was pretty sure the fans were good and the connection in the motherboard was bad.

He seemed mildly amused/impressed by my spiel. I’m not really a computer person, but swapping out parts to narrow down the source of the problem seemed logically basic.

I ended up chilling with him while he worked on things. He found WinZip on my desktop and let out a “whoa retro.” which hurt me deeply.
