Schoolchildren in Russia will soon be taught a variety of military skills such as maintaining firearms as part of a new drive by the country's defence ministry submitted by Dimus to European

I am very strongly against conscription, but teaching basic skills and safety in schools is a good idea.

A spear.

Easy to learn (but difficult to master). Keep people at a distance where they can't hit you. Easy to fix if it breaks. Cheap to make.

The spear is arguably the most popular melee weapon ever, and with good reason. It's basically just a pointy stick.

What do you think is the best thing about voat? submitted by 800_pound_gorrilla to AskVoat

Both the biggest strength and weakness of Voat is its small user base. There's less content, which isn't so good, but there's also less of a hive mind.

I have no words. submitted by lcosahedron14912 to fatpeoplehate

I assume this is a sex thing.

As someone who has spent a fair amount of time with hippies and goths (although neither myself) suspension is nothing new. Although the people I hang out with rarely do it for sexual reasons, it's more of a spiritual thing.

Anyway, suspension (which it looks like she's going for here) should be done with temporary piercings like this. It looks brutal, but it's actually not as painful as you'd think, and skin is crazy strong, so you aren't in any danger of having them rip out. If you're human that is...

I can only assume that the reason that this beast cannot use hooks is that it

a) lacks the discipline required (not surprising given that they have no discipline in anything else either)

b) Its skin cannot handle the weight of its body. Once you know how strong skin is, this becomes utterly amazing that someone can weigh enough to not be supported! My friend who was into this used to use two to four large hooks in her back, then swing on them! She was 100% human sized, a real shitlady. She even wore her huge heavy goth boots while doing it.

Suspension is not really my thing personally, but to be physically unable to even try it is pretty sad!

Solar flares could wipe out our way of life. This scientist says it's already happening submitted by abc_xyz to Conspiracy

Title makes it sound like flares are increasing, which as far as I know they're not. This is due to decreasing architecture size, and changing from 2D to 3D transistors.

Although large flares are certainly an issue. Back in the 1800's I think (I forget exactly when) there was a flare so large it set power lines on fire! It didn't cause many problems though because so few things were electronic. A flare of that size now would cripple most of our technology.

Although as creator and mod of /v/luddism (come join us) that doesn't sound like such a bad thing.

What's a conspiracy theory you don't believe? submitted by Gerplunckamo to AskVoat

That in my view is the biggest argument against them going there. And the fact that they don't just use space suits for going into nuclear disaster areas, because they clearly don't work. How did they survive? Maybe they never passed through.
