And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.

The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.

When I was waiting in line to get John Barrowman’s autograph at Dragon*Con this year, he was eating a banana. He took one bite and then saw me watching him. Then he proceeded to deep throat the banana and bite it off with like 90% of it inside of his mouth. I started giggling and he winked at me while looking like a chipmunk due to all the banana in his mouth.

Barrowman, please.

Pocahontas was on television last night, and my sister kept arguing that opening both eyes when aiming a firearm is stupid. I threw together these graphics to demonstrate the difference to her and then figured I’d share them.

the trick is to shoot in between them! one eye opened and you wont be seeing the target correctly…
if you shut your left eye, you’ll shoot too much left, and shut your right eye to have the opposite effect.
so it was kind of right, even though smith didnt finish the explaining. you open both eyes and shoot in between the targets!

It sounds to me like you’re looking at your pistol instead of at the target, like this:

If you focus on the target instead, you can align your sights with it and your aim should be perfect, assuming you have a steady hand.
And in case you’re thinking of shooting between the guns, here’s why you shouldn’t:



This is the coolest informative post i’ve seen on here in forever.


Also, it depends upon what you are shooting at and what kind of gun you are using.

Typically, when you are shooting something else and are not really aiming, you don’t close either eye. You don’t have the time to pause and aim like that. Target shooting or hunting is a different matter.

In a situation like that, you have all the time in the world to make a shot, and typically, you are aiming. That is when you need to close one eye so you can take a more accurate shot by decreasing what you see and focusing on what you are aiming more. It’s what you do if you are using a scope, but not everyone uses or has one.

In the Outdoors Education class I took in school, we learned how to find out which eye we naturally ‘preferred’.

Hold your arm out fully and put your thumb over an object that you can clearly focus on with both eyes. Then, close one eye, look at the object again, and repeat with the other eye. Through one eye, your thumb will move off of the object to one side, and through the other, it won’t move. The one that did not move is the eye that your body prefers and is the one you should keep open when you point and aim.

If you try to use the eye that you don’t apparently prefer, then while holding a gun like this, you will feel off and your stance won’t feel quite as comfortable.

I am left-handed, and so, the butt of my gun is pressed against my left shoulder. When I use my left eye, and I have tried this before, my stance is off and leaning more towards the left, and kind of hurts my neck, where as if I use my right eye, then everything is more aligned and I am not leaning so much to either side.

However, this doesn’t always work for everyone, and so the general rule of thumb is to go with whichever eye has better vision and/or feels more comfortable for you.

But like I said, this is only when you are on a range and are target shooting or are hunting. ketsudan:
