Hopefully neither gun was injured. As a Navy vet, I now longer even try to get involved in disputes

Far to dangerous.

Record and get to a safe distance.

Everyone seems to think they are Bruce Willis.

Practicing Iaido it is constantly reinforced how easy it is to die.

In any fight, you have three outcomes.

1. Your opponent kills you.

2. You kill your opponent

3. You kill each other.

So you already have shitty odds to start out with. A 1 in 3 chance of success. Training is everything and even then it may not be enough.

My sensei had a student, very hard to teach, a student who thought he knew it all and after a few lessons, he felt he could learn faster on his own.

Went out and bought a live katana (Sharp...Real sharp)

Was off practicing at his house doing his twirls and other Chanbara (samurai movie) stuff. All these twirls with three feet of razor blade in his hand.

He manages not to kill himself and then sheaths his sword at an off angle.

Problem is Scabbards (Saya) are made of cypress, a Japanese scabbard (Called a Saya) is nothing more a very dry wood meant to protect the blade. Not protect the person from the blade in any real way.

The sword goes in at an off angle out through the side of the scabbard and through his arm and artery.

The ONLY reason he didn't die was his wife was there in the house to take him to a hospital and he didn't pull the sword out. Had he done so he would have bled out in minutes.

People seriously think they are invincible.

Woman filmed berating dad using ‘food stamps’ — and accusing him of being a Bernie supporter

video posted online last week purportedly shows an unidentified woman castigating a man in the checkout line at Walmart for using SNAP benefits, more commonly called “food stamps.”

The video, which was first noted by HotTopics, has amassed nearly 122,000 views since going online on April 24. The woman can be seen standing in line behind the unidentified man, who is at the counter with his child.

“I put in 50 to 60 hour weeks,” the man says toward the start of the video. “I’m trying to provide for my family.”

“You’re not providing for it, I am,” she replies. “The government is. They take it out of my check, bullsh*t they don’t.”

Naomi Klein Takes Down Hillary Clinton: ‘I Don’t Trust Her on Climate at All’ (VIDEO)

When it comes to the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s position on one of the most pressing issues facing humanity, author and journalist Naomi Klein isn’t mincing words: She says flat-out that she doesn't trust Hillary Clinton on addressing climate change.

"I don't trust her on climate at all," Klein told Al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan, in an UpFront interview scheduled to air on Friday, March 18. "As secretary of state, when she had a huge megaphone to make this an issue, to show that she understands the connections between human security and climate, she didn't use the megaphone."

Klein, a fierce critic of corporate capitalism, also questioned the rationale behind Clinton’s White House bid:
The logic of her candidacy was because she had so much money which is why she is unbeatable — look at how deep the pockets are there. But the irony is, it’s where that money comes from and the entanglement of the Clinton Foundation with so many corporations and so many governments, that is what makes her vulnerable. So on the one hand, it’s supposed to be what makes it inevitable, and on the other hand it’s what I think makes her a weak candidate.

She called Bernie Sanders a "significantly better candidate" than Clinton. "I think that Bernie Sanders could win in a general election," she said.

Tourist killed by train while stalking legendary ‘Goatman’ monster on Kentucky railroad bridge

An Ohio woman was struck and killed by a train while looking for a mythical creature that, according to legend, tricks people into climbing onto a railroad trestle.

Roquel Bain died of multiple blunt-force trauma injures about 7:30 p.m. Saturday when she was struck and then knocked from the trestle in Kentucky, reported WHAS-TV.

The Dayton woman and her boyfriend had been visiting Louisville to take a ghost tour of the disused Waverly Hills Sanitorium, but the couple first decided to investigate the “Pope Lick Monster” urban legend.

“It’s been around for years, even my nieces and nephews used to go and come out here,” said Denise Harris, who lives nearby. “The Goatman, when they climb up on the trestles and they cross it — he’s supposed to come out when they cross it.”

Trump University Offers Sarah Palin Honorary Degree in Climate Science

Manhattan – Earlier this morning, Trump University issued degrees to 4,500 students online, and drew the attention of national media when the university announced several high-profile recipients of honorary degrees, sources say. Among those to receive honorary degrees, Sarah Palin was offered a honorary doctorate in climate science, a M.D. in advanced neurosurgery, and a PhD in “having total class”.

“We doctors are the shakers and the movers, the pokers and jokers, the wheelin’ and the stealin’, Obama’s been to that mountaintop, that I can tell you…” Palin told a crowd of the stupidest humans alive Saturday morning. “Let’s get that Trump Train behind us, in front of us, in our hearts, our minds, our mouths… Get the word of mouth out for Donald!”

Palin has been in the headlines this week after questioning whether or not Bill Nye, “The Science Guy” was in fact an actual scientist. “Bill Nye is as much a scientist as I am,” Palin said at an event in Washington, D.C according to The Hill. Palin targeted Nye over his statements on global warming featured in the anti-climate change documentary “Climate Hustle”.

Donald also reportedly offered “one hundred degrees from my university” to John Kasich for his delegates, but the Kasich Camp has not responded to our request for comment, and sources close to the governor say he may be holding out for Vice President.

Ted Cruz’s former roommate just revealed his self-pleasuring technique — click only

if you’ve already had lunch

GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz argued as a Texas solicitor general that there was no right to stimulate one’s own genitals, according to Mother Jones — but his former college roommate says Cruz is being a hypocrite.

Craig Mazin, a Los Angeles screenwriter and film maker, has made headlines in recent months for commenting on his unhappy time spent as the Texas senator’s college room mate.

According to Mother Jones, Cruz’s office argued in 2007 that “there is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship.”

Mazin quickly responded to Cruz’s reported comments on Wednesday:
