Sandia Labs develops intelligent bullet

I've read that the 50 caliber rifles are legal to own, but difficult to shoot because of their one-mile range.

I'm told that the 50 caliber Barrett rifles are painful to shoot (you can taste blood in your mouth from the shock wave!), and the bullets cost $7 each, too pricey to family use:

To make the trip for distances over one mile, special powders are neded to get to 2,700 fps and you need to fill the shell with no airspace, the bullet resting on the powder.

Sandia Labs has announced a guided missle in 50 caliber!

Note that small space for gunpowder that limits muzzle velocity to 2,400 fps.

The four inch bullet has missle fins and is self guided, zeroing-in, based on a fixed laser beam, which is managed by the spotter.

In the two seconds for the bullet to travel a mile, the terrorist may move, but as long as the spotter keeps the beam on the target, this new missle-bullet promises to be accurate to six inches at a half mile.

Hence, this weapon is a two-man operation, but it is remarkable that Sandia has developed a technology that allows a bullet that is rotating at 200,000 RPM to steer itself!

Don’t get eaten by your pet!

Elderly people love their cats and dogs and numerous studies show that the geriatric crowd benefits from having pets.

Pet ownership reduces their blood pressure and it's a win-win for both the old person and the dog.

But beware, if you die alone, Rover will have no qualms about eating you, and the medical team will have to scrape-up your remains with a poooper-scooper:

Don't let this be your final resting place

Today, a surviving spouse will often live alone in the last years of their lives, and singleton geriatrics are commonplace.

Nobody likes to talk about it, but if you die unexpectedly and your dogs has no long term food supply, you can expect to have your body eaten by Fido.

This pony was truly well-endowed, and in this photo you can only see three of his legs.

The Monty Hall question:

In some Oracle job interviews, questions are designed to see how
well you think about abstract problems. A favorite is the "Monty Hall"

1 - Contestants are shown three doors.

2 - Behind one door is a new car, while the other two doors have a "booby prize" (a goat).

3 - After the contestant picks a door, Monty Hall reveals a door that he knows to contain a goat

4 - Monty then asks the contestant if they should switch doors of stick to their original choice.
