    Dreadlocks are a Jew thing anyway. Samson (of Samson & Delilah fame in the Old Testament) had 7 locks of hair, and was a Nazarite (a sort of weird cult who never cut their hair, among other things)....

    The problem is that, as you point out, fully automatic weapons are already illegal for the vast majority of people in the US. The few that have them and that you see on YT are collectors,...

    If the cowling is gone, that's (by definition) an uncontained engine failure. That's NOT how it's intended to fail. The cowling is supposed to stay intact & attached to the engine.

    Here's a good article on why the Ian M. Banks's Culture is well thought out. It's a reasonable argument, and makes a very good case for Consider Phlebas.
