Human distal femur shot with a 510-grain lead Minié ball fired from a .58 caliber Springfield Model 1862 rifle.
The minie ball, originally designed by Captain Claude-Etienne Minie of France and improved on by manufacturers in the United States, changed warfare. Since the minie ball was smaller than the diameter of the barrel, it could be loaded quickly by dropping the bullet down the barrel.These bullets could travel a half-mile or more, and the average soldier could hit a target at 300 yards.
Neither side anticipated the impact that the minie ball would have on the battlefield. The minie-ball forced commanders to fight defensive battles rather than traditional frontal assaults. Since the bullet was made from soft lead, when it entered the body and struck a bone, it would flatten out and shatter the bone thus inflicting more damage. There are even reports from Gettysburg of trees dying from lead poisoning from being shot so many times.

In 1949 this beach was an unrestricted dump. For 18 years glass, car parts, razors and other broken and used items were thrown away here before the council realised it was probably a bad idea. For the next 30 years, the elements worked their magic on all of the rubbish and with humans rectifying their mistake by removing rusted metals and other objects, this beach is now a unique and beautiful tourist attraction.
Just done fuck loads of research on this and then I find it on my dashboard
Advertised as “the first X rated movie filmed in Russia ” (maybe some of the stock footage was), Librianna is a nearly forgotten XXX exploitation hybrid. Torture chambers, disfigured goons, secret lairs, a busty blonde sex kitten all the trappings of an Ilsa movie, but replace the violence with XXX fucking and the nastiness with near-painful ineptitude. Any movie with a lengthy disclaimer thanking “the brave men and women who risked so much to aid in the production of this fine film ” and then displays it’s opening title over a shot of a cum leaking pussy is an instant classic in our book.
