|08:08 pm - So I nearly got killed today... Version 1.5, with a few more pix|
My neighbor accidentally put a .44 Magnum round though my wall. It missed my head by I'd say about three inches. It started in his bathroom, went through the mirror, went through the closet on the other side, blew through that closet door, traveled across his hallway, blew through our common wall, ricocheted upward off my computer desk, and lodged in the doorframe.
To the people who have claimed this is a hoax:
1) So I can attract more hits to a non-revenue blog? Yeah, ok.
2) For free advertising for my mythical paysite?
3) I destroyed a mirror, a wall, a desk, and a doorframe on purpose so I could what, exactly?
4) I'm an attention whore. Yep, that's why about 75% of my LJ entries are Friends Only and I keep my Friends List pretty small.
5) I pretty have tried every character class, race, gender and have played both Horde & Alliance. I have a level 60 Warrior as my prime, but I've been testing a few others. That's what I was doing when the incident happened.
6)Ballistics "experts" who claim I don't know what I'm talking about and claim I don't know shit about weapons. Let me put it this way. I'm certified to drive an M3A3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, and to operate its 25mm Bushmaster chaingun and TOW missile launcher. It also explains why I "just happen" to have the certain something in the last picture.
So I was playing World of Warcraft. I'm right handed. You can pretty much figure out where I was sitting. Bonus: Free new computer desk.
Where the round finally stopped. It hit the desk and ricocheted upwards, which is how it ended up at the top of the doorframe.
My neighbor's bathroom, where the shot originated. Check out the mirror. Something tells me he just forfeited his security deposit. Note the twin .50AE Desert Eagles, M-16 magazine, loose ammo, and .357 Magnum laying around like toys. Nice. The .44 Magnum he nearly killed me with is out of sight.
Close-up of the mirror. Yes, this was obviously made with a power drill as part of my elaborate hoax. </rolleyes>
His wall. IIRC, this is the wall he shares with me. I'm not sure what caused the second hole. I'm guessing part of the destroyed closet door.
He also owns an M-4 carbine, a Bushmaster, about half a dozen Glocks from 10mm on down, a .44 Automag, a Heckler & Koch MP5, and he said he has a Barrett.50 cal sniper rifle and a .454 Casull on order.
Me, wearing drywall shrapnel.
The actual round. It's pancaked pretty good*. Sorry it's blurry, I was trying to take the picture one-handed.
*I can hear it now...OMG TEH BULLIT IS TOOO SMALL TO BE A MAHGNUM!!11 FAKE!!1 HOAX!!111
1) I've become a minor internet celebrity.
2) It is now safe to play Warcraft again:

and it could happen to anyone livin in a violent country like this. striking and disturbing..
what the fuck, man??
and this isn't in the barracks?
My lovely new apartment, where I've lived less than a month.
Holy crap dude. I'm glad you're alive and stuff.. but, what the fuck? How exactly did you get pictures of your neighbor's bathroom gun collection?
I think this was fate's way of telling you that you should be playing Final Fantasy Online instead.
In all seriousness.. I'm really happy you're not dead. That would be a bummer.
He heard my "what the fuck?!?" and came by to make sure I was ok.
FFO is teh ghey.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You play a chick character on WoW? Why did the bullet miss?
|Date:||April 21st, 2006 01:37 pm (UTC)|| |
Its becasue you play alliance
Its becasue you play alliance.
If you would have rolled horde the guy would have blown off his own package and you wouldnt have ever been in any danger. Heed the sign. re-roll.
seriously though. glad you're not dead. what server?

Walls don't offer any protection
Agreed, you're lucky to be alive.... you might check out this: http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/bot1.htm

Re: Walls don't offer any protection
I know. I've been through enough MOUT training.

I certainly hope you called the cops. Your tool of a neighbor is lucky he didn't KILL YOU! OMGWTFBBQ chicken!! It's not a joking matter, the next time he is screwing around playing "Ima Gangsta" in the mirror with his chrome Desert Eagles, etc. and one of them goes off he might not MISS. What about your other neighbors? Do any of them have kids? Call the cops for your own sake and the sake of the others in the building.
!!! glad you're not dead. I was just thinking about you today. Are you related to anyone in Michigan?
Holy fucking shit Batman. Glad you're alright. I'm glad you guys bonded over the pretty guns and stuff, and I'm fairly sure (or hopeful) that you have reported this. Someone that forgets they have a big huge gun in their pants, maybe shouldn't have guns.
Maybe it's 'cause of your nifty mil. training, but if it were me, he would owe me a new pair of freakin pants too. 'Cause I would have shat mine. A lot.
9/10 This topic delivers!
You're on GameFAQS.com thanks to your dumbfuck shell-shocked neighbor. Be careful or you'll be the next Leeroy Jenkins.
The hole in the wall makes it look to me as if the bullet would have passed directly through your mouse.

Re: 9/10 This topic delivers!
holy fuck I'm so glad your ok!
roflsauce just picked you up in my guild forums, jeez man, God says roll on a PvP server ;)

Glad you're alright.. and your neighbour ought to be brought up on charges. It's an "oops sorry its an accident" for him but for you it could have been alot more fatal.. and final.
You really oght to thank the feller who made your computer desk.

I can't believe I'm just now seeing this...holy crap man! (literally)

Here we go, here comes the ignorant flames of the anti-gun crowd. Don't get me wrong, that guy is an idiot and he needs to be punished. I can see the mongolian horde of closet socialists comming to exploit this. Punish the individual, not the rights of others nor the industry.

Re: Oh Boy
Man up, Nancy. Nobody likes a whiner. BTW, glad to see you learned how to copy & paste.

You have a thread in WoW forum. And all sorts of other places obviously.
Found you through digg.com, damn man, scary.
The flack jacket on the wall is a nice touch. Did your neighbor give you that as an 'apology'?

Data on next door neighbors
Maybe you should go around and meet your neighbors and see if there's anything else that could happen to you in your apartment. You could then move your desk and arrange your place accordingly (and you might make new friends in the NRA which would give your neighborhood watch a bit of pep).
ps. It's nice to know that you're unscathed and you're getting a new desk.
