More commonly known as 8mm Mauser. The ones in the picture are Turkish. You can see the “sickle & star” emblem on the headstamp in the third picture. Most of the surplus 8mm Mauser supply has dried up since very few if any nations still use the caliber for their military.
Recap of this week’s fuckery:
[TW: Racism, Lynching, Violence, Rape]
- People examine the “humanity” of Hitler.
- A man fakes depression and scams people out of approximately $50,000. He then releases an “apology” where he says he’s not sorry for stealing the money and he states that he believes that depression isn’t real.
- Testing revealed that the only DNA on the gun George Zimmerman had on him the night he killed Trayvon Martin was his own.
- A northwest Austin man lynched an empty chair from a tree in his yard. The empty chair was meant to represent the President. When asked about the display, the man said “I don’t really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not. You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don’t give a shit. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.”
- Everyone’s favorite racist grandpa, Pat Buchanan, called President Obama a “drug dealer of welfare.”

It’s not even Friday yet. What the hell people. What. The. Hell.
and those last two could actually be expanded to include at least half of tumblr and their post-racial bullshit.
Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.
I don’t know how this makes me feel
It makes me feel very uncomfortable
You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you?
Bolded for emphasis.
I mean, it personally makes me uncomfortable because he was an Anti-Semitic, murderous person, and one of the worst human beings ever and many of his plans were able to come to fruition. I don’t think it has anything to do with not being able to “see” evil. When the fuck are you able to “see” evil? This isn’t a children’s movie. Murderers, abusers, and rapists aren’t all scary old men with full beards and a cane. Not all evil people are scary and obviously evil at every moment in time, who would think they are? Do you think abuser were never appealing? Do you think anti-Semitic murderers like Hitler weren’t charismatic enough to win fans?
I think Hitler did some great things for the world. I do not agree with what he did, but I do give him recognition for what he did.
So many great things that nobody can think of even one!
Keep Britain tidy!
Spitting Image, Thatcher and Hitler.
I love this bit, my Mum thinks its weird that I like Spitting Image when I wasn’t even alive in the 80s but it’s so funny =D
