I haven’t done a long post in a while. Today I’ll be talking about one of Germany’s most recognizable weapons, the Model 24 Stielhandgranate  or “Potato Masher” as the Allies affectionately called it. For simplicity’s sake I’m going to call it the “stick grenade” from here on out.

Originally introduced to the German Army in 1915, the Model 24 was the standard issue high explosive weapon given to the Landser through out the remainder of the war, and continued to be used throughout WWII as well.

Detonated by a friction igniter, the user would take a cap off the bottom, pull on a cord that had a porcelain ball at the end. When the cord was pulled, it would drag a small steel rod through the igniter which through friction and heat, set off the explosive charge that had a 5 second timer.

Originally starting out as more of a concussive weapon, a serrated fragmentaion sleeve was added to later iterations to make it more effective against enemy infantry.

Compared to the traditional Allied grenade, such as the British No. 36 Mk. 1 “Mills Bomb” or the American Mk. 2 “Pineapple” Grenade, the German stick grenade provided a point of leverage to allow the user to throw it significantly farther. (And speaking from personal experience as someone who is terrible at throwing grenades, a stick is much easier to throw than a ball)

It was also common for German soldiers to increase the power of the Model 24 by removing the explosive charges from several other grenades and attaching them to one, in a bundle. This was known as Geballte Ladung, or bundle charge.

Variants included smoke charges, and incendiary charges.

The first WWF/E Raw TV event I ever attended live was late July 1997. I was eleven. Bret Hart cut his infamous “if I gave the United States an enema” promo only to get pinned by The Patriot later that night. Stone Cold Steve Austin and Dude Love were tag champions. Mankind dressed as a camera man to jump Triple H, British Bulldog tried to feed dog food to Ken Shamrock, Goldust and Marlena played mind games with Brian Pillman, boxer Michael Moorer knocked out Rockabilly, and the Truth Commission made their Raw debut (points if you remember that one!).

To any of my Pittsburgh friends attending Raw tonight, especially first timers, I hope your experience is as overwhelming, unforgettable, and fun as my first time. As much as I love what I do, part of me misses the innocence of just being a wide-eyed fan.

Hello! Still looking for fails? Today was my first day of playing pokemon GO and I’m obviously ridiculously excited.

So, I’m biking down a road with one plug of my headphones in my ear so that every time I run into a pokemon I notice without having to hold my phone while riding.

On top of the hill I rode past this woman walking with her grocery bags and straight after that I ran into 5 or so pokemon on that same hill in front of her (which is so much action for me for both being a first timer and living where there aren’t many pokestops) I must’ve looked so suspicious, braking every 15 meters to do fiddle with my phone, haha :D

anonymous asked:

(Fluff) Cooking with Tracer? (Or teaching Tracer how to cook) (Also making a HUGE mess in the kitchen)

Okie dokie! I’m gonna write it in as a s/o sort of deal but write so they could also just be friends!

- Tracer is actually a really clumsy cook, accidentally leaving something in the oven too long, letting a pot boil over because she is spacing out

- it would be wise to be there to cook with her so that way when she spaces out her s/o would be able to remind them

- she loves cooking and will ask for their help whenever she wants to make something, especially if she is baking because that will end badly if she is left alone

- she would love to be taught how to cook and honestly she would need to be bought a small timer that she can carry around so that way stuff doesn’t get set on fire

- will always try to cook new things and even buy a cook book full or different recipes to do with her s/o

OH MY GOD!!!!!! Thank you so much everyone. Never in my wildest dreams, did I ever think that this many people would follow me. I’m completely speechless and in awe. To celebrate I really want to start a new series for you guys. I have a couple ideas, and I think it would be awesome if you guys would vote.

So pick your favorite character and story and send them in. The stories are…

You can just call this one the timer one

Timer soulmate A.U where you and your best friend from childhood wished for the day you would meet your soulmates. But now, present day, the allure of finding your soulmate has faded. And your best friend has broken her timer to be with someone she hopes to spend the rest of her life with. The only problem is her fiance (insert character of your choice here) is the one that makes your timer hit zero.

or

You can just call this one the reincarnation one 

A reincarnation A.U where you and (insert character of your choice here)  have lived many lives loosing and finding each other, making choices that ultimately lead to it ending in some tragic accident. Now present day, you meet at the B.A.U. Your past lives come to you in dreams, each teaching you a different lesson. You both need to learn from them in order to save the other, and escape your tragic fate.

I’ll announce the winners and release a short exert from it, then a few days later I’ll post the first part. 

You can vote here. Or by talking with me through the chat system. Thank you so much. I love you guys. 

I will be posting the results I get in my inbox, so if you don’t want to see them you can backlist (series results)

tbh it bugs me whenever i see ladybug written as overly harsh/dismissive towards chat. like…

  • have you seen the girl’s face when chat shows up? she’s all smiles and ‘boy, am i glad to see you’. it’s the same when he goes due to his timer running out, she smiles after his trail, and it’s just, so fond? 
  • when chat called her out on not listening to chloe, sure, she defended herself, but she didn’t dismiss chat’s words, didn’t lash out on him. in fact, she realized her mistake and apologized to chloe after the whole mess was cleaned up (also, did you notice how disheartened/concerned she looked when they didn’t do their fist-bumping routine?)
  • she truly believes that she and chat are partners, and has no problems admitting she needs his help e.g. simon says.
  • her reaction to chat’s sacrifice in chronogirl? i rarely saw her face so enraged. also, how she held him close to her? 
  • her reaction to volpina interacting with chat was very interesting. and by interesting i mean the girl was jealous. that gag-face? dude…
  • there’s no one in her civilian life that she banters (sometimes to a flirtatious degree) with like chat. it says something about how comfortable she feels with him.
