Current Events / Re: Another Mass Shooting

The discussion of the use of deadly force by police (and the racist aspects of that in the United States) has been split off to a new thread. Thank you for your patience.  :maskwink:

Only the first four minutes are pertinent to this subject, but the rest (on Matt Gaetz) are entertaining too.

Wow, that was an amazing demonstration. That sphere looks perfect. I wonder how they made it prior to hydroforming.

It is a simple task, because any curved 3D object can be made from flat faces or facets. I see each sphere is welded up from, in this case, only 7 flat sheets of steel. I guess seven is optimum for the size of the explosive charge they are using and the thickness of the steel. Fewer faces would require bigger explosions. More faces would be overkill, as they would need lower charges, but more time and work to assemble.

I don't think that it has anything to do with racism. It was an arrest that went bad, because of a stupid mistake. One thing is however sure. If the guy would not have resisted his arrest, he would still be alive.

Given how many armed white men have resisted arrest and gotten out of it alive (even sometimes been bought lunch), I don't think either of those things can be assumed.

You'd have to be completely confident in your welds.  8)

I suppose this both forms the sphere and pressure tests the vessel at the same time!   :rofl:

Um, yes, it has to do with racism. "Dark skin people are dangerous" is their motto.

No, if the cop would not have shot him, he would still be alive. Resisting arrest should not be punishable by death.
