119. Couple of things...
1. You can't compare a pear to a human skull. Different pressures and a skull is a lot harder and denser than the skin of a pear.

2. The round fired in your picture is a lot slower than one fired from a high powered rifle.

3. Notice where the vast majority of the fruit is ejected from the front. Taking this into account, why isn't anyone in front of Kennedy absolutely splattered with skull, brains and such? Why is the officer riding behind the limo on the motorcycle who testified that he was splattered with blood and gore?

4. There is no air being brought by a bullet. It cuts through the air faster than the speed of sound. That is why you hear a crack. What the air is doing to the bullet is dragging it and affecting it's trajectory.
