Entertaining Education Demonstration

Posted on 14 April 2014

As they search a ship for armed terrorists, Jack can tell them what shots are going to be fired, from where, by who and at whom. If you’re going to be in a gun fight, why try to have only a few milliseconds of lead time when you can have a half hour?

Tempus Fugit by Lawrence Lee Rowe, Jr.

Posted on 09 April 2014

Have you ever wondered what our founding fathers would think of the United States of America as they exist today? Well, it’s obvious that Mr. Rowe had some of those thoughts as he wrote “Tempus Fugit”. Translated that means “Time Flies” and it’s a book about three of our founding fathers who find themselves transported through time to Mount Rushmore in the year 2001.

Rattenkrieg! a book review

Posted on 08 August 2012

In the book Taubert frequently casually drops high-level insights into the middle of a chapter; for example you will learn why “rhythm” shooting is an easy trap to fall into and how it accounts for a lot of misses.
