I went through the autopsy results when they came out and I wanna say only one fatality (it wasn't more than a couple) was struck in the head and the vast majority were only hit once. Tumbling bullets are real deadly when they hit center mass. One unlucky person was hit only in the leg and died. There were a poo poo ton of people boxed in.

thinking through the info they laid out, I guess they were saying he missed the fuel tanks too. fwiw, this is the first time ive heard of the airport connection at all with regards to this.

literal fish in a barrel makes sense and sort of runs counter to the discussions about shooting accuracy in the episode. who cares if he's "accurate" if he's not aiming? volleyfire isn't rocket science either.

edit: i was working and listening, maybe he hit the tanks and failed to set them on fire then? idk

Yeah he hit the tanks twice:

quote:

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock fired at jet fuel tanks near the concert site where he killed 58 people and wounded more than 500 on Sunday night.

A 43,000-barrel fuel tank was struck by gunfire on Oct. 1, McCarran International Airport spokesman Chris Jones told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday. That night, Paddock used his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to fire onto an unsuspecting crowd at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.

...

“One round penetrated Tank 202, which was partially filled with jet fuel,” the airport statement said. “A second round was found lodged within the same tank’s outer steel shell, and did not penetrate. This tank was subsequently evaluated by experts who found no evidence of smoke nor fire.”

I haven't listened to it yet but I'd dread a Port Arthur episode if they think Paddock was accurate.

I think a lot of people gloss over or forget most of whatever they learn about WWI/II unless they develop a specific interest for them, so I understand not being able (or willing) to wrap your mind around the fact that one person doing that much damage alone isn't unusual.

But lol how do you think over a million dudes died in the somme in 140 days?

cholera, artillery and (in WWII) air power were more deadly than small-arms fire. in WWI they realized that the clear majority of infantrymen weren't even firing their weapons which fueled propaganda and dehumanization campaigns in basic training

I love the combination of bump stocks for high cyclic rates AND high accuracy. never used a bump stock but i've wasted some $$ bump firing an AK, and while hilarious, it's all over the goddamn place. I would expect any 5.56 platform to be more manageable with a bumpstock, but still not great. That detail, plus their claim of no optics is very strange to me. I don't have a good feeling for how dense the crowd was - maybe for most of the shooting he was just floating rounds in the direction of the concert?

I've done some shooting comps with professional shooters, and watched them put dinner plate groups at 500m with iron sights and it was very impressive. these folks practice a lot and are accomplished, other than the gun sales paddock doesn't sound like an expert marksman or someone with significant firearms experience.

also - love to see our favorite ZA outfit, executive outcomes, show up. only a matter of time, i guess!

Yeah if I'd been Paddock I would have fitted an IR scope to my gun and used sick CS:GO strats to get a way higher K:D ratio, what a noob mistake to assume he could camp effectively with an AR using iron sights. gg scrub

The Mandalay Bay episode is in my top 3 TrueAnon episodes, after listening to it twice. Felix is a fanastic third mic and really ties the combo together. If Brace is a bagel and Liz is peanut butter, Felix is just a little bit of honey on top, the bagel and peanut butter stand on their own no problem, but the honey really elevates the whole combination.

Her speculation about cities getting re-vitalized because rents go down and young people move back in idk that seemed like day-dreaming to me, does she have a background in economics? That seemed too vague to the point where maybe it shouldn't get mentioned.

Her analysis on the decline of moocs was sloppy as well - moocs declined because no one wanted to spend money on a certificate no employer cares about. Oh, you've got a certificate for a course on infosec from coursera? well good for you, pal. The idea that it's the lack of physical proximity to fellow students and the teacher sounds like some 90s era internet criticism.

to be fair rents are down in many high cost cities (san fran, nyc, seattle) but yeah they are still nowhere near what we would call “affordable” let alone cheap

Rents are down because we’re facing unprecedented levels of evictions/foreclosures/homelessness due to the economic Covid collapse and literally no one can afford rent so landlords are getting desperate
