Modern soldiers still wear plate armor. Thing is, it's quite heavy depending on the material used (mostly steel, or ceramic), because they have to be rated to absorb the shock of certain calibers, typically multiple times before failing. So, for pistol calibers up to 9mm, you can mostly get away with just wearing a thin kevlar sheet, but rifle calibers require either a steel or ceramic plate.

The challenge to creating modern armor, however, will always be a simple equation: momentum. Simply put, you need to have enough mass to decelerate a bullet, otherwise that energy is going to travel through the armor and still injure the person wearing it. You can see this pretty clearly when it comes to kevlar body armor; although it's incredibly light, that lightness is a bit of a double-edged sword, because it means the energy of the bullet must be mostly absorbed by the wearer. Depending where the shots land, this could mean severe bruising to broken bones. Admittedly, broken bones and bruising is a hell of a lot better than being dead, so most people are fine with this trade-off. In other words, because we relying on physically decelerating projectiles, armor literally has to be heavy, otherwise it wouldn't work.

i dont know if id describe SAPIs as plate armor. sure we call them plates but when somebody says plate armor i think more of tanks >>256

 No.268

also SAPIs are different from medieval plate armor in that theyre designed to be hit and shatter as they disperse the impact to lessen the blow and (hopefully) stop the bullet. its a one and done thing, as opposed to the metal plating on a tank which is made thick enough to stop small arms fire entirely

I don't really agree with his claim there. After all, if that was true women would have worn wooden breast codpieces, they didn't. It's still likely they would have worn armour that did have a different style to it, there were women that wore armour maybe one day some of that will turn up in a bog somewhere but not enough of them to make a style I think. There is also practicality to think of, if the cod piece was a detriment to the effectiveness of the armour they would not use it, it's possible it was even useful.

>>268
There are plates made of solid steel that do that same thing.

Is it moral to kill if the lives lost result in the saving of a considerably larger number of others?

I thought about this after watching some videos on Chronic Wasting Disease, which is a transmissible neurodegenerative prion disease among deer. Principally, the main method of containment revolves around culling infected populations and maintaining surveillance on spread.

Could you foresee there ever being such an infectious disease among humans where the moral thing to do would be to kill infected people?

>The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few
Yes, it's moral, but it certainly wouldn't feel like it to the person making the decision. Typically, affected people are sent away in isolation is the most we've done in polite society. Stuff like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leper_colony
I'm sure there are quite a few examples of human culling being done, but I can't remember any right now and I'm sure there's stuff forever lost to history.

Do you make a difference between killing someone and letting them die, should they both be done to help someone else?
You might be interested in observing triage, as that was necessary during the pandemic in badly affected countries.

It seems to me, the willingness to sacrifice is there. However the moral value of the sacrifice would also depend on the range of alternatives, as has been mentioned already with the proposal of quarantine.
Should there be a situation in which no alternative can be accepted, I believe eradication will be practiced and seen as moral.

It's weird, I thought Russians were only going to be in some events as part of the slap on the wrist for the whole Sochi cheating thing, but they're everywhere. With this and pushing ahead during a pandemic (with very bad results in Tokyo) it's really apparent how much it's run as a business.
The Russian woman here was definitely much faster, but I wonder if she was going faster than he brain could process it and that's what cost her the win. Yeah, it does look like a slip but I wonder if that's the result.

If a strong tornado were to come tearing through your home, how safe would you be in an ordinary basement?

 No.797

My country doesn't really have them, only old houses do. It seems like it would be a lot of work to make them and most houses are just build on concrete slabs now anyway.

 No.799

I live in an apartment, so there is no basement. I would just... die, basically. There's a pretty steep decline nearby that I could maybe hide at, but considering a lot of the danger in a tornado is flying debris, going outside to hide in the woods may not be the best idea.

 No.800

I have no idea, tornadoes are so rare here I can't tell how much damage one would do. There should be a room secure enough in my house though.

 No.801

Depends on tornado strength, but they're generally pretty safe. The best option is a safe room that's made out of steel and also has large bolts anchoring it into the ground, but it's pretty rare for anyone to have those. I've seen commercials for them, though.

cause sports isn't about the game or strategy, it's so people can gawk at how strong/coordinated humans. If you add science to it then the culture of the olympics is no longer about the strength of people, but the strengths of science and the support that technology gives.

because once you allow drugs people wouldn't be able to compete natty, also increasing performance momentarily at the expense of long term health consequences goes against mainstream sport ethics

big part of the reason I don't watch seasonals at all anymore is how much more freedom I have with watching what I want, when I want to. I can leave stuff when I'm busy and watch it when I'm not.

My cousin's daughter started using a smartphone before age 2. I mean, she plays games on it and probably watches videos. I told her that it's a bad idea because brain development still isn't understood very well and the early ages are very important. Then there's stuff like depth perception and I wonder what else can go wrong when she isn't interacting with her physical environment when everything is getting wired and rewired at that age.

My uncle used to talk about how bad these were for children and how even Bill Gates did not allow it and sent his children to a school where they did not use computers along with other rich people but then he had children and ended up letting them play with smartphones to keep them quiet anyway, it's just the lazy option. But he also talks about nutrition but doesn't follow what he says and he also thinks society is collapsing and plans to take his children with him on a boat which he will use to sail between island delivering computer parts for money. So take that how you will.

Always wondered if some of these dubious videos such as mouse trap videos and lock picking are for a demographic of psychopaths on YouTube who enjoy committing crimes.

Videos like this don't help anyone except criminals and the innocent minority of people who watch them to buy a good lock.
