Mirror- The US military are in the process of testing a new electromagnetic gun that can fire ammo at 4,500mph.
The Navy have developed a weapon that will use a ship’s self-generated power to fire at long-range targets.
This means that the electromagnetic railgun launcher uses electricity instead of chemical propellants.
Magnetic fields created by high electrical currents accelerate a sliding metal conductor, or armature, between two rails to launch projectiles at 4,500mph.
The railgun is powered by electricity that has been generated by the ship and stored in a ‘pulse power system’.
Next, an electric pulse is sent to the railgun, creating an electromagnetic force accelerating the projectile up to Mach 6.
Using its extreme speed on impact, the kinetic energy warhead eliminates the hazards of high explosives being kept on the ship, and on land, reduces the chance of unexploded bombs which could potentially be detonated.
According to the Office of Naval Research : “The railgun is a true warfighter game changer.
“Wide-area coverage and exceptionally quick response will extend the reach and lethality of ships armed with this technology.”
Meanwhile in North Korea……
LOL. What a loser North Korea is. Honestly they might be the country I’m sick of the most because they’re so god damn tiny and Kim Jong who ever the fuck has the biggest Napoleon complex and is constantly shouting threats at the top of his lung. Meanwhile he can’t get a rocket to fly high enough to punch a flock of pigeon mean while we’re launching projectiles at Mach 6 speeds fast enough to knock the food off of Kim Jung Un’s fork before it reaches his mouth. At this point I know with Trump at the head of the country people are just crying out saying their world is gonna end. Well guess what, anyone that comes at us, we’re gonna swat their missiles out of the sky at 4,500 mph. Keep doing you, NK, cause we’re doing just fine.
Mental Floss- Like many aspects of North Korean life, internet in the totalitarian state is kept hidden from outsiders. That was until recently, when the country’s list of registered domain names was accidentally leaked to the rest of the world. More surprising than the content of the North Korean web is the number of sites: As Gizmodo reports, a grand total of 28 domains were uncovered.
The leak came after an engineer in the U.S. sent North Korea an automated request to access all of the domains in their main Domain Name System (DNS) server. The server is normally programmed to reject such a request, but this time something went wrong and access was granted. The list of domains was posted to GitHub, and then to Reddit on September 19.
Many of the websites have since been taken down, but plenty of screenshots were saved from the leak. As you can see below, the North Korean internet includes websites dedicated to news, charity, film, education, sports, food, and even social networking. North Korea’s internet still remains a mystery to most people within the country’s borders. According to ABC News, computers are only accessible to select citizens like university students and government employees. This means that only about 10,000 to 20,000 residents out of North Korea’s population of 25 million are connected to the web.
TWENTY EIGHT websites total. If you were to try to explain the concept of the world wide web to someone, you would probably describe it as endless amounts of information gathered all over the world. It’s a place for entertainment, news, a place to talk to friends you haven’t seen in decades. The internet is a wonderful thing. It makes people laugh and even orgasm. Lots of people orgasm from it. Now imagine all of that going away. Imagine being privileged enough to own a great piece of technology called a computer but using it to only know about your old ass dictator President, Kim Jun Un. What is the point of that? Im pretty sure in North Korea the only thing you are allowed to do is learn about Kim Jung Un, hate South Korea and every nation not controlled by the supreme leader, and starve. That’s it.
Wild man. I think I officially can’t define North Koreans as humans anymore. What is it that’s defined mankind and humanity for the past decade? Its the fact that we strive for more in life. We want food that doesn’t taste gross? We harness the power of fire to grill up some bomb ass cheese burgers. You want to travel to a destination but tired of using your feet? Oh I don’t know domesticate horses to travel, shovel coal to move a 10 thousand pound locomotive, intricate science concepts such as the combustion engine to travel to McDonalds in under 5 minutes. Human’s did that. Mankind did it. We had a natural thirst for wanting more in life. North Korea doesn’t have there. No pioneers in that brain washed country. No thirst for more knowledge beyond the walls of 28 web pages, none of which is porn or this site, mind you. It’s what has separated humans from animals. Sure in this case the animal in the metaphor probably has access to megaton nukes potentially, but I wouldn’t be intimidated by a little fox scurrying around in the woods so i definitely wont be afraid of North Korea.
DailyMail- North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s ‘closest comrade’ has become the latest top official to die in a crash in a country where there are ‘almost no cars on the road’.
Kim Yang-Gon, 73, who was in charge of ties with South Korea and a secretary of the ruling Workers’ Party, died in a crash, state news agency Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.
Impoverished North Korea’s road network is badly maintained and car ownership is rare, yet several high-level officials have died in traffic accidents over the years.
In June 2010, KCNA reported that Ri Je Gang, 80, first vice department director of the Workers’ Party’s Central Committee, died in a traffic accident.
Ri reportedly bickered with Jang Song Thaek, a powerful uncle of Kim Jong-Un, who was eventually executed by his nephew for alleged treason in 2013.
In December 2009, the news agency said Ri Chol Bong, 78, chief secretary of the Workers’ Party’s Kangwon provincial committee, died in a traffic accident.
Jang, the executed uncle of Kim, survived a car accident in September 2009, according to South Korean media reports.
Foreign analysts believe Jang was also purged and sent to a labour camp for two years in the mid-2000s in what was seen as a move by Kim Jong-il, the late father of Kim Jong Un, to clip his wings.
In October 2003, KCNA reported that Kim Yong Sun, a senior North Korean official involved in reconciliation efforts with South Korea, died of injuries sustained in a traffic accident four months earlier.
Kim Yong Sun was a close aide to then-leader Kim Jong-il. But Kim Jong-il’s military, which traditionally favours a hard-line stance on South Korea, had reportedly tried to hold him in check.
Ruthless move by Kim Jong Un here. Blatantly lying in the peoples face. Oh yea my closest confidant that fucked up? He died in a tragic car accident even though it was in a remote area with no traffic what so ever in a country of people who are too poor to even afford cars but yes that is how he died. It seems that within the wreckage the car was traveling at such high speeds that he was somehow push to his knees on the ground and had a bullet put in his brain executioner style in, again, said wreckage. Oh and if you find your self doubting the word of the supreme leader you might even find your self in a fatal car accident somehow with a noose around your neck. Actually fuck that, having the honor of having your death being covered up in a blatant lie is a death reserved for his close buddies, he’ll probably just shoot you in the face for fun.
