For The Miller- Robots

JB Miller posted a video on Robots that reminded me of a photochop I did on a lark a few days ago:

I'm coming for your guns!

Diagnose this Malfunction, Redux

Details- Gun is my AR Pistol.  Del-Ton lower, DPMS LPK.  Palmetto State Armory Pistol Buffer, Spring and Tube.  Upper was bought as a complete unit from a reliable source- 7.5"bbl, Spikes Tactical BCG. 

Ran fine for a long time.  Now, it has just mysteriously become a single shot.  In the videos above, you will see some times the casing is halfway extracted.  Those are times that the gun is not braced.  When it half extracts, it was braced against my chest. 

I have given it a good cleaning, ran the bolt both wet and dry.  The only thing I can think of is it somehow being undergassed.  But how does that happen just all-of-a-sudden?

Frozen Friday random internet stuff

It's cold (well, central TX cold... barely freezing), so most things have shut down.  There was a report of ice on a bridge somewhere within MOAB blast range, so the city has shut down.  The stores are out of firelogs, Menthol Tobacco flavored vodka, milk and Lone Star beer.  Reports of cannibalism in the remote parts of West Campus have been coming over the wires.

In compliance with the FEMA warlords that have taken over my sector of the city, I am hunkering down in my encampment with a makeshift spear made from a broom handle and a MacBook Pro motherboard.

In the interim, here is some random stuff from the Internet:

Star Wars Bohemian Rhapsody:
Scary Computer News (H/T Borepatch):
Computer scientists have brewed up prototype malware that's capable of communicating across air gaps using inaudible sounds.
The mesh network capable of covertly communicating without wireless or wired connections was developed by Michael Hanspach and Michael Goetz. It borrows its founding principles from established systems for robust underwater communication.
Now my computer is talking about me behind my back.  Great.

Interestingly, the Armenian moonshine is a phonetic spelling of the sound you make the morning after drinking it: aragh
