Imagine...used by the Austrians against Napoleon and part of Lewis and Clark's kit! And apparently doubled as isometric exercise equipment...I mean, 1500 pumps to fully charge it! Bet those guys had forearms like Popeye and triceps like John Cena.
Life really does imitate art sometimes. For example, more than a decade ago, comedian Chris Rock proposed in a stand-up routine that if bullets were made too expensive, there would be much fewer shootings. Cook County, Illinois, seems to agree, which is why that region, which Chicago occupies, is proposing a bullet tax that would help defray the costs of crime. Get an installment loan for your bullets right now before they get expensive.
