Heck, shooting the body into a concrete wall wouldn't give CSI much to go on.... How much could they learn from a pink mist? :)

Give me a few years and I might be able to tell you :D

I'm considering Osteology or Forensic Anthropology as possible Honors programs

Nah, you'd still have fragments big enough to get DNA from.

Seems to make more sense to encapsulate the unfortunate individual in an aerodynamic projectile and fire them off at a high angle.

The Rochling shell could go through over 12 feet of reinforced concrete...

Fired into softer ground...

Having said that, a plastic drum and hydrofluoric acid in copious quantities is a less ballistic way of going about it, and the guys in "Breaking Bad" make it look easy...

Probably more realistic than murdering someone like this


That is just the sort of ridiculous overly dramatic plot line that is encouraging youngsters today to go into forensics, not realising that the actual job opportunities are extremely limited.

I also expect to kick down doors carrying out arrest warrants, process my own samples from the field in the lab, and interrogate serial killers until they break down and confess :D

Sounds like lack of ambition to me :)

As a lab rat, I can relate to this:

One of the reasons I enjoy "Breaking Bad", they don't go that much overboard.

I digress, wouldn't want to distract attention from the largest hybrid ever built :)

You could probably fit in the barrel. Just saying.


It would be a tight fit, but if someone wanted to kill me, I guess it wouldn't matter.

Well it was either that or they need you to launch a meteorite in order to provoke a "Maya lite" mini apocalypse to see if those Doomsday Preppers can put their money where their mouth is :D

It looks like"they" may actually do a small piece on the gun itself as part of a larger show. IE, they wouldn't be using the gun for some other purpose, they'd be talking *about* the gun.
