The Puckle gun!

Puckle demonstrated two versions of the basic design: one, intended for use against Christian enemies, fired conventional round bullets, while the second variant, designed to be used against the Muslim Turks, fired square bullets. The square bullets were considered to be more damaging. They would, according to the patent, convince the Turks of the "benefits of Christian civilization." The square bullets, however, were discontinued due to their unpredictable flight pattern.

I don't get it at all... "My mate just died with a square hole in his head. Gee, this Christian civilization must be really something." Huh

I really fail to see the logic, too (and I don't think it's 'cause of the rum, either)...

But! One of the guests is Trevor Noah... and he was saying something in Xhosa and this isn't helping one bit Weeping


Also learnt that the Zulus were kinda the inventors of the bulletproof vest because they would soak their leather clothes (or whatever) in water and it would stop the pellets Brits were shooting at them. Shaka Zulu also did something to improve spears but my attention kinda wandered off (could have been because Trevor Noah is really cuteWink)

No, it's a frost flower.

In my defence; I don't see ice often outside my freezer, and it's name is a bold faced lie.

Plus it still looks dumb.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Wanna say I learnt about the Mandelbrot set... but I think "read" about it would be more the mot juste. Oh well... Rolleyes

Didn't even attempt the Julia set after that...

Never lay down and sleep when driving around for hours after you've had your wisdom teeth pulled. You will experience the hell of motion sickness.

My husband is brilliant.

Well, so far he's brilliant, if he has fixed the problem he's a genius worthy of worship.

"But that's in the old Testament"
"but that was a different time"
This argument is pretty much a failure guarantee when used by a condescending Christian Creationist.
