6 Creepy New Weapons the Police and Military Use To Subdue Unarmed People

The US is at the forefront of an international arms development effort that includes a remarkable assortment of technologies, which look and sound like they belong in a Hollywood science fiction thriller. From microwave energy blasters and blinding laser beams, to chemical agents and deafening sonic blasters, these weapons are at the cutting edge of crowd control. The Pentagon's approved term for these weapons is "non-lethal" or "less-lethal" and they are intended for use against the unarmed. Designed to control crowds, clear streets, subdue and restrain individuals and secure borders, they are the 21st century's version of the police baton, pepper spray and tear gas. As journalist Ando Arike puts it, "The result is what appears to be the first arms race in which the opponent is the general population." The demand for non-lethal weapons (NLW) is rooted in the rise of television. In the 1960s and '70s the medium let everyday Americans witness the violent tactics used to suppress the civil rights and anti-war movements.

8 Reasons Young Americans Don't Fight Back: How the US Crushed Youth Resistance

Traditionally, young people have energized democratic movements. So it is a major coup for the ruling elite to have created societal institutions that have subdued young Americans and broken their spirit of resistance to domination. Young Americans—even more so than older Americans—appear to have acquiesced to the idea that the corporatocracy can completely screw them and that they are helpless to do anything about it. A 2010 Gallup poll asked Americans “Do you think the Social Security system will be able to pay you a benefit when you retire?” Among 18- to 34-years-olds, 76 percent of them said no. Yet despite their lack of confidence in the availability of Social Security for them, few have demanded it be shored up by more fairly payroll-taxing the wealthy; most appear resigned to having more money deducted from their paychecks for Social Security, even though they don’t believe it will be around to benefit them.

Top 10 Worst Aircraft of World War 2

There are countless books, dvds and websites about the great aircraft of World War Two. Almost everyone would recognize the Spitfire, P-51 Mustang, Me109 or Lancaster. However, there were hundreds of aircraft types used between 1939 and 1945, and, inevitably, some were abject failures. I’ve always enjoyed ‘worst of’ lists, and had an interest in aviation, so I thought it time to combine the two. So what makes a bad aircraft? Is it the slowest, most outdated or poorest armed aircraft? It’s not that simple, as some aircraft massively overachieved despite being outdated (the Fairey Swordfish is a prime example.) So my criteria is simple: a bad aircraft is something that failed to do the job it was assigned to do.

Edmunds.com's 10 Best Cars for Short Drivers

Short drivers know how hard it is to find vehicles that let them see out properly and adjust themselves comfortably behind the wheel. Edmunds.com, the car-shopping and research site, has compiled a list of what it believes are the 10 best cars for short drivers. Some of those cars you probably can afford, others maybe not. Visibility is the key safety issue. If you can't see what's around you, after all, you're more likely to hit it. Common sense. Except that car designers have little of that commodity. Looks good, live with it, seems like their attitude. Thus, many of today's cars rob you of the ability to easily see out because of what's considered attractive. Sheetmetal that comes up high (called a high beltline), roof pillars that are thick or poorly angled, and windows that seem like they start at the second story and you have to jump to see out.

11 Dishes You Should NEVER Order on a First Date

When it comes to dining with people that aren’t our coworkers, we try to be as nonjudgmental as possible (well…sometimes). But when we’re going on a dinner date with someone, we can’t help it. Who knows—this could be our future spouse, and we couldn’t imagine spending the rest of our lives with someone who only orders boneless chicken breast and salad at restaurants (not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that). And if first impressions are as important as they’re said to be, what you order speaks volumes about who you are. Plus, there are just some things—for sex appeal’s sake—you shouldn’t touch when you’re trying to seal the deal.
