This 19 year old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper)

was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed

a man digging by the road. She engaged the target (i.e., she shot him). It

turned out he was a bomb maker for the Taliban, and he was burying an

IED that was to be detonated when a US patrol walked by 30 minutes later.

It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.

The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at 725 yards.

She shot him as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot went through

his butt and into the bomb which detonated; he was blown to pieces.

That's a shot longer than 7 football fields.

The Air Force made a motivational poster of her:

Pretty impressive,that's 1/2 a mile!

    • I know its David Newton, but.... It looks like Darnold is vaccinated, assuming he's following the rules.  
    • I don't think he really needs cash flow from the team. The investment has been well worth it based on the appreciation of the franchise. He'll make out like a bandit when he gets rid of the team. I somewhat doubt he will be interested in being a forever owner. Although he has been involved at some level in NBA basketball for most of his life, at this point.
    • Absolutely.  Bought the boat cheap and then caught the tide that lifted all boats...his boat has definitely increased in value.   On paper, yes.  From a cash flow perspective, definitely not.  For him the Bobcats have been the same as a house in a Dilworth.  A lot of folks bought houses right in Dilworth...and while the area has exploded and home values have skyrocketed, the longer-term homeowners have only written checks to maintain the home, and pay the mortgage, etc... ...until they sell their gains are only on paper.  MJ first invested 15 years ago and the team has been a consistent money-loser over the course over that time-frame.  He may have actually been able to deposit some cash in his personal account with the partial sale of the team to the 2 NYC hedgies but that's the only material cash in-flows he's seen since 2006.
