Let me check with the Producers of Forensic Files. That seems like a very generous price given the quality of the theme.

Send GB a PM. He can look up the trajectory charts on a .300 Weatherby Magnum. You need to give him the bullet weight you plan to use. If you are shooting handloads, give him the type powder and the weight of the charge.


He won't have to. someone has already done all that just as they did with the alleged 9mm and the bullet was able to maintain just enough velocity and energy to penetrate a balloon at a very sharp angle.

Trajectory tables are available for every calibre known to humans. As you know, they are based on mass and velocity of projectile.

Still Einstein's most notable equation.

It is fundamental to ballistics. The energy which Americans as primitives measure in foot-pounds is arrived at by that equation.

Einstein's most famous equation, E = mc^2, falls into that category, stating that the energy content of a massive body is equal to that object's mass times the speed of light squared. ... meter squared per second squared, or a mass multiplied by a velocity squared.

GB. I know I am splitting hairs but the energy incorporates mass x velocity squared to arrive at the units of energy. It is the energy that exerts an effect upon the object it strikes. Remember, her story was partly to entertain the audience of CT. Which by the way, she has mastered. Don't get too excited about distance, mass and velocity. Those are all the privileges of her authorship. Wink!

But she didn't call the perpetrator a "weekender" or "Part timer" or "Hobby Farmer" or anything with her norm derogatory tone. Are you sure she was the author?

I assume so. Let's form a committee and investigate if she is the authentic author!

So what ya'll are saying is that the OP spewed another line of BS, got called on it, and she was just joking around?

Ok, got it.

I don't know if she was joking or maybe intentionally disingenuous. That is what needs to be investigated. I think Backhoe is going to put together an investigative committee. At least, I have made that plea.

The topic was worn out after the first page. It got so bad, Joe started making up stories to keep us entertained.

I hope you aren't implying the hitchhiker was a serial killer.

No way. Statistically impossible that two serial killers would meet under the circumstances of your scenario. Only in a Stephen King story.

Did I miss something?
Who was the first serial killer?
What was his/her choice of weapon.
If it was a Wilson 9 you may be on to something here.
This would limit the possible suspects to the higher income group or the reverse if not a Wilson.

We've made progress. So far we have ruled out collusion with foreign governments. That's 18 months saved as well as millions of dollars.
