Killgore Gets Downdinged

This makes no sense whatsoever. 

The video link is here. Despite Killgore’s reference to Assange, this is NOT anything leaked by wikileaks; and appears to be totally ok with the DoD.

My only comments are:

1. WTF???

2. Does this dope have any idea how much money all those racks and racks of capacitors costs? This isn’t some technology that anyone’s going to “steal”. This is for state actors, only.

Too much Batman. 🙄

    “…Hopefully some patriot will steal the technology…’?

    I’m with you, Iapyx.

    I mean, those are flux capacitors!

  4. I know there is a sarc tag…

    …but is there a shitfaced tag?

  5. dej says:

    Probably got down-dinged because LiveLeak mentions Fox News and he’s enthusiastic.

  6. Basement Cat says:

    Batman, not so much.

    Batsh** crazy, is more like it.

    • My Little Ponytail says:

      I’m just imagining Killgore’s feverish mind with pictures of the Penguin with one of these things threatening Gotham City unless…

  7. Re: rail gun

    I think what we’re seeing here will wind up being quite primitive when you consider the potential for this technology. Electromagnetism is one of nature’s basic laws, and when you look at what happens in the universe (see: magnetars) you see the power is virtually limitless. A little more tweaking, and you could probably hit the moon with a projectile.

    • My Little Ponytail says:

      But not with something you build in your garage.

      The Navy’s right to be doing this though. If they can fling projectiles at Mach 10 without having to store all that powder, they become a lot deadlier. Especially if the ship is nuke powered.

      • I just wonder if the “barrels” get hot (so to speak), and what the potential rate of fire could be.

      • My Little Ponytail says:

        That’s why a real unit wouldn’t look like that. Instead of cables, they’d have rigid busswork that could stay cool under sustained firing. The rail itself would also have to be better ventilated. That’s what has to be worked out, and I’m sure that they’re a good 10 years away from a practical shipboard unit.

      • Mashiki says:

        You can build small ones in your garage. 20kj railguns are possible for the ‘average joe’ with an understanding in physics to build. I wish I could find the link, but I remember a few years ago the univerisity of tokyo physics dept. building a 250 coil rail gun that could launch 0.5″ projectiles through 4′ of hardened steel.

        Most of the stuff is beyond the average person like bi-ceramic nm-magnets and things like that, not to mention the amount of power you need to fling a round, and the safety considerations. Once you’re up past 6-7 coils, you can start punching holes through 2″ boiler plate.

        But making your own coil magnets? pre-formed tubes, proper magnetic coil collapses on the track via timers? Nah you can do all that stuff on your own. Bunch of companies make 0.1ms and slower batch timers that you can pick up for $200-400.

    And WTF with the sexual sadism? Why is KKKillgore fantasizing about rape?

  9. swamprat says:

    Killgore got downdinged for mentioning rape in a positive light. Whether he meant that Assange would be rich and famous enough to “rape” women by not using a condom(euro-rape)

    or whether he meant rape in the conventional sense because he had a very powerful gun,…I cannot say.

  10. Overlook says:

    What is the lgf orthodoxy on Assange and the leaks?

    • My Little Ponytail says:

      He’s a hero. The Chunk hath spaken.

    • wolfie says:

      It’s all very confusing, from what I can tell.

      It is evidently quite acceptable to regard Assange as a hero at LGF, as some lizards do. Such comments have apparently been made and updung* with impunity.
      The Blogmeister thinks the leaks are no big deal. He seems to think that Assange himself may be kinda sorta like groovy, man. Or like not so much, man. Whatever, dude.

      OTOH, Manning is regarded as sufficiently dirty for Kommissar Killgore to accuse him of being a TEA Partier, but not quite so wicked as to be called a Creationist.

      As soon as the Left solidifies its own narrative, the Chubster will know what his opinion is.

      * I rather like “updung” as a past tense for upding, when speaking of LGF.

    The only way taht small penised “man” KKKillgore Trout could ever have sex with a woman is if
    1. he took a shit load of Levitra
    2.He had a gun
    3. He paid a prostitute

    Yeah my jokes aren’t working lately… :- /

    Don’t get fluxtered or fluxmoxed or fluxtrated.

    • Mashiki says:

      Wooo! GIR! WOO!

      We’re gonna sing the doom song now!

      I seriously wish they never canceled this cartoon…it was something special.

    Jack, I heard you were looking for me. Meet me at the tow truck in the stadium parking lot.

  14. Flouncy McDownding says:

    I wonder how hard it would be to make a pocket-sized version of that thing. Maybe with a couple of good batteries, etc. you could rig something that could shoot a bb-sized pellet or a needle, something small like that. Silent but deadly.

  15. Roger says:

    This is a particularly psychotic piece of writing even for KT

  16. Ricardo Multiban says:

    I wonder how many of those downdingers got banned? It’s not like it hasn’t happened before. I should know…
