Navy railgun

This is not from a movie, that's real stuff.

http://dvice.com/archives/2008/02/the_navy_shows.php

Just take a look at the image above! It shows the first demonstration of this crazy magnetic railgun, which fired a shell at 5,600 miles per hour using 10 megajoules of energy. And that's just the beginning. When this thing is done, it'll be firing shots at over 13,000 miles per hour.
13,000 mph, that's an insane speed for a shell. I wonder what kind of weapons they don't show us...

God bless the USA, now we finally can destroy the Narn! Mwuhahahahahahahahahahahaha ... . .. . Yeah.. Mach 7 freakin' insane.. 2018 launch time huh? Who'll bet me they'll have that working in the next two years? And damn it, it's about time we use some of our more non conventional weapons. It would be fun... think about it. Ah... memories.

UFOs do not exist they are a figment of your imagination.. what you really saw was a flock of seagulls, a couple weather balloons, a satellite, three f-16s, a 747, and some Northern Lights. Remember kids theres no such thing as aliens. o_O

We all know that cows just suddenly spontaneously burst into flames. It has nothing to do with little green men.

Not just cows, people as well. They call it instantaneous combustion. Look it up with Google, it happens for hundreds of years.

Re: Navy railgun

Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) refers to the belief that the human body sometimes burns without an external source of ignition. There is much speculation and controversy regarding SHC, for it is not a proven natural phenomenon. Many theories and hypotheses have attempted to explain how SHC might occur, but those which rely on current scientific understanding say that instances mistaken for spontaneous combustion actually required a source of ignition. One such hypothesis is the "wick effect", in which the clothing of the victim soaks up melted human fat and acts like the wick of a candle. Another possibility is that the clothing is caused to burn by a discharge of static electricity. The likelihood that truly spontaneous human combustion actually takes place is remote, due to the presence of water and the lack of highly flammable compounds and oxygen in the human body.[1]

They sometimes talk about his on tv, they never seem to have a good explanation, or a good reason for SHC to happen.
