Bullet entries are usually less important than bullet exits. In case where you discover large quantities of blood, it is likely the bullet deformed on impact, but not enough to be stopped by the body struck. This is known as a through-and-through, and is a less desirable result than the bullet being trapped within the body, as a bullet exiting the body can still retain a large portion of its energy, which will then be expended into the next item or body (quite probably friendly) it strikes. Thus the invention of the hollow-point bullet, an improvement on the old police technique of cutting crosshairs into the tips of lead bullets.

The hollow point bullet has, as its name implies, the tip hollowed out to some depth back into the body of the bullet. Upon impact, material fills the cavity and exerts pressure in all directions. This causes the bullet to deform outwards from the center, thereby increasing its frontal area. This has two benefits: first, it creates a larger wound channel, increasing the likelihood of stopping the target. Second (and consequently), it results in greater drag on the bullet, thereby increasing the likelihood of the bullet stopping before passing through the target, ensuring full deposition of the bullet's energy into the intended target, rather than into unintended items or people beyond the target.

I.. I just can't begin to respond.

Your insanity is impeccable.

I'm hurt.

I give you a perfectly good analysis of modern bullet design, and you accuse me of insanity.

It is to weep.

*weep*

I realized I spelled it wrongly as soon as I hit "update." You can't fix polls, which pisses me and my bad spellchecking skills off to no end.

Wow, that was a bulky prepositional phrase.

Woah... I totally feel like I just walked into the wrong meeting room and everybody's talking about stuff that kinda makes sense, but I don't know who the fuck everybody is.

Twilight zone, I swear.

Well, it's perfectly understandable. However, if one examines textual subconstructivist theory, one is faced with a choice: either accept social realism or conclude that sexuality may be used to entrench colonialist perceptions of art, but only if Debord's analysis of dialectic feminism is valid; otherwise, Bataille's model of social realism is one of "neodeconstructive capitalist theory", and hence part of the absurdity of culture. But the dialectic of the postcapitalist paradigm of context prevalent in the Twiligh Zone is also evident in Outer Limits. If structuralist narrative holds, we have to choose between the postcapitalist paradigm of context and the subcultural paradigm of narrative.

Structuralist narrative should never be analyzed by a feminist. Everything becomes a demonstration of the mysogyny or paternal dogma. Or a penis. Great, big, honkin' penis. Of course, similar efefcts are seen when viewing subcontext of discussions such as these from many of the literary perspectives.

And I completely

That couldn't possibly be because their eyes naturally fixate on such phrases as "[g]reat, big, honkin' penis," could it?

Granted, that's not very subcontextual, but context is your only clue to subcontext (assuming you read in a vacuum...of course, if you don't, you're corrupting the narrative with external influences. What those of us of a more scientific persuasion might call instrument insertion error.)

You went to a lib arts school, didn't you? It takes 4 years of intense training to be able to bullshit like that. No sarcasm here, that's impressive.

I just realized that this is, in fact, the meeting that I'm supposed to be in.

This begs the question: Do I do it well enough not to drive people nutty?
