I saw this brain teaser on Youtube a few days ago. I managed to figure it out before I watched the video. I’m no Einstein, but I was pretty proud of myself.
“What a lovely thing she was… Standing as high in the water as one of your skyscrapers, longer than two rugby fields, and furnishings to match the finest mansions in England. She was one of a kind, no question about it, and God himself, they said, couldn’t sink her. Then in two hours she was gone… and fifteen hundred souls with her.”
-John Bigalow (Alec Guinness), Raise the Titanic (1980)

The Iron Cross Band is a Romanian group that loves their rock and roll. Check out this cover of AC/DC’s “Shoot to Thrill” (which happens to be my favorite song by the Thunder from Down Under).
That’s a pretty damned impressive cover. Check out their Youtube channel for more high energy rock. They do covers and originals, and are pretty prolific.

This police-involved shooting in Oklahoma City is some pretty scary stuff.
Once that gun came out, there was zero time to “deescalate” the situation. The only option was to shoot back and hope you get him before he gets you. That officer was lucky that the bad guy’s marksmanship skills were garbage. Having that tourniquet handy was pretty helpful too.
