Looks like a custom base of PALS webbing with attached MOLLE gear.  [What? No Camelbak?]

All in all: Nicely done, sir.

World Wildlife Fund ‘Steps In It’ With 9/11 Ad

World Wildlife Fund would like to remind you, as we approach the anniversary of 9/11/01, that it was nothing compared to the devastation following a tidal wave.

While WWF claims that they didn’t approve of this ad showing dozens of planes about to strike New York City, DDB Brasil (ad company) says otherwise.

Who thought this was a good idea?

Who thought this was a good idea?

The ad copy reads:

“The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11. The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.”

[Link to story]

Talk about screwed up.  What’s the message here? Apparently it’s saying that the Earth is a greater danger to us than radical Islam so therefore we should live in fear of it.  Or maybe, you should only respect and preserve things based on how much brutality and power they have.

No.  That can’t be it…

There is only one message:  Cheap sensationalism capitalizing on a horrific crime to emphasize a natural disaster only proves that the WWF should never again receive another dime.

Circling the Drain: UK Most Violent Country in Europe

Wait.  I thought that Britain was so peaceful [no guns, no knives] and non-threatening [no right to self defense] that the bobbies don’t even have to carry guns. Right?

British Police Effectiveness: “Stop! Or I’ll yell ‘Stop!” again!”

Apparently not:

Britain’s violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa – widely considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries.

The article cites:

In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.

The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609.

So, to sum up, let’s compare this chart:

Most violent countries in EU (Wait, is that Canada?)

Most violent countries in EU (Wait, is that Canada?)

With this one:

We're number 1!

We're number 1!

Apparently, the U.S. of A, being the Most Armed Country in the World and having 90 guns to every 100 citizens, keeps us rather safe.

Big shock.
