@wo0dy: that's not really true, you use only 10% of your brain for one action i believe, cause your whole brain is made of nerve cells(?) and is devided into sections which handle certain senses or muscles. it's not like you only use 10% of your brain mass ;)

i think i made some errors there^

his mother used to kid about his deformity by saying "your head looks like a deflated basketball" !? wtf, that's sick!

nice to see the poor kid made it(no pun intended)

Why? Did you shoot him?

gotta love pop psychology... victorious is the only one even remotely close and even he's a bit off.
We did studies about the limited capacities of the brain during visual and language tasks, and there is a ceiling effect. Heh, they used our research to show that you can't drive and talk on your cell phone at the same time.

Anyway, I hope the fucker who did that to the kid lives a long full life of ass rapings and beatings in jail.

His mother ridiculed him about having a "deflated head" because they were dealing with the problem through humor. Watch the vid again, it says that they eventually got to joking around about it. That's a good thing, because the trauma never completely fucked this kid's life up. More power to him.

This kid is NOT a nigger. He had a job, he was/is smart, he is motivated and he seems like a nice guy. Big difference is he isn't out smacking white boys on a playground like a nigger punk was in another video , he isn't shoving drugs on the street, he isn't acting "gangsta" - like and he isn't fucking white girls. THIS is a kid I want to see make it in the world.

Wonder where his dad is though.

Man, that just fucking sucked. Thats why guns should only be used by authorities!

He must be only able to move one side of his body sort of like a stroke victim because left side of the brain controls the right side and vice versa.

I dont know...something about seeing someone with such a Grotesque injury tends to shock you...

And Culexor-"Man, that just fucking sucked. Thats why guns should only be used by authorities!"

PFshhh


I guess you missed a few posts...like the guy who gets shot while on the ground being cuffed and the lady cop pulls the trigger on him..

And there are many more situations of authorities needlessly shooting a 12yo kid thats cuffed in the back of a car...and many others that dont have videos..


Actually..What needs to happen is we need to develop body shields like they have in the DUNE universe...Make guns Obsolete overnight and create combat more fitting for order.

If you dont read...The Body Shields in Dune block penetration of an object that is moving at decent speed like a bullet, but a knife can slip past if used correctly, This is why Knife Fighting is so prevalent in a Universe that is set 50,000 years ahead of this one.

^ There's currently body armour being tested thats light soft an flexible but becomes hard and rigid when something hits at speed with force like a bullet or knife. We're getting there but i just watched a program on future weapons and bullets will be the last thing you have to worry about, all manor of rays guns excist already they just arent being used yet. The Active Denial System: energy weapon should be online soon enough. Ha ha by the time the american people realise they need to revolt against their government , (probably when martial law is entroduced) it will be too late they wont be able to do fuck all.
