  • Are Starter Pistols Considered Firearms?

    While shuffling through my great grandmother's house a while back, we came across an old Starter Revolver she had kept in case anyone ever broke in. It was loaded with 8 rounds of .22 blanks, and after emptying and examining the gun, we came to realize it wasn't capable of firing a real .22 cartridge, as the barrel was plugged. So because this gun is only capable of firing blanks, is it considered a lethal firearm? Would one need a license to acquire this revolver? Or is it just a heavy duty cap gun.

    We're talking about Canadian law here by the way.

  • what makes a person want to run away?

    Recently (the past two weeks) I've been feeling a constant urge to escape and run away. Whether I'm at school or at home, I don't ever feel comfortable wherever I'm at. I feel like no matter the situation, the solution is to get up and leave, running off to somewhere distant where I can be completely alone, like a forest or something. This is out of character for me. Why do I feel this way, coming from a scientific background.

    If this adds to your answer, I haven't any diagnosed mental illnesses, and I'm a young teen, with a good home life, but I've been fairly annoyed with my girlfriend and a few other people lately.

    So explain to me what makes you think I feel this irrational need to leave. Please be detailed yet easy to understand, thank you

    Do you have to play the other Assassin's Creed games before you play AC3 in order for it to make sense? Or is it a stand alone type thing. I'm fine if there's just a few things I should know before hand.

  • Why do I smile when people are sad?

    So a while ago, I was at RCAC cadet camp, and it was a very emotional time. And on the last day before we all left, a crap ton of people stared crying and got really sad because they were going to miss each other. Upon seeing people cry, I just smiled. Grinned like a little girl. That's one example of my untimely smiling. I don't smile often, rarely actually, but when people cry, I Glasgow smile, ear to ear, and It makes me seem sick and twisted.

    I'm wondering what's the simple phycology behind this. Why do I do this? Am I subconsciously trying to cheer them up? Do I find it funny that people are sad? Am I flipping sadist? What's up?

  • Is "Olympus Has Fallen" too violent for older children?

    Is this movie apropriate for a mature ten year old? I'm fine with him hearing coarse language, really it's just the violence that I'm worried about

    (and if there's any nudity that's kinda a deal breaker).

    He's used to seeing people get shot or cut (he's seen Raiders of the Lost Ark, pirates of the Carribean, a few james bond movies, Commando, Terminator, T2, all of the batman movies, predator 1 and 2, GI JOE, some of the A-Team Episodes, Jurassic Park, Avatar etc)

    Basically I dont want to take him to anything like= Passion of the Christ

    Zombieland

    The Excorsist

    or anything else that could traumatize the **** out of him and keep him awake for nights

  • Is it illegal to be a mercenary?

    I heard from whispers on streets that being a mercenary is illegal as of 2013.

    So I'm asking if it's true,

    and if it is,

    does that mean it's illegal to be a Private Military Contractor? (because they're two different things technically).

  • Imagine Dragons Radioactive mening?

    So I've listened to it like 100000 times, and still I'm not sure. My dad is convinced it's describing the feelings of a guy on acid or just drugs in general. Other people believe the Apocalypse he's talking about is just an unhappy event, and him being radioactive are the emotional scars that he will have to live with. So what's your opinion?

  • Why do assault rifles have pistol grips?

    From what I've noticed, not a single assault rifle has a regular rifle stock, they all have pistol grips. Some people say its because of the extend able stock, but that's not true in the spirit of the original M16 or Ak-47. So I ask of you, why the pistol grip?

  • What does it feel like to see a dead person?

    I'm writing a story, and in it a young man/teenager witnesses someone be shot in the head at point blank. He doesn't like the victim,(in fact he hated the victim) but he still feels saddened and depressed (of course). This teen then leaves the bloody, gorey scene and runs away to hide from the murderer. Now that he is alone, he starts to cry and throw up, and he feels all sick. I would like to know, what it feels like, or how to describe the emotions one feels after seeing a bloody, wounded dead person for the first time. It pains me to ask you this, especially if you still haven't truly gotten over it, but if you have any insight it would be greatly appreciated.
