Nice and surprisingly life-like. I can think of a few amusing uses for those.

Now you might have a very minor case of serious brain damage! But don't be alarmed, all right? Uh, although if you do feel alarmed, try to hold on to that feeling because that is the proper reaction to being told that you've got brain damage.

Here is a video of the launch of the Solar Dynamics Observatory in 2010. Ignore the starting and ending music, but listen to the reaction of the people around the camera as the rocket disrupts the sun dog (at about 1:50).

I'm glad that's over. The 24/7 coverage was irritating. I'm not sure if I should feel glad or not. I wish they'd really fix whatever ails the LAPD.

If this is how the LAPD deals with whistleblowers, yeah, you guys have a problem.

I suppose the circle of flags marks the body.

It was an accident. They didn't think the tear gas grenade would set the house on fire, like it did in Waco. or Philly. or Ruby Ridge.

I wouldn't be surprised that they were less careful with a "cop-killer" once they knew there was no one else in the cabin.

They opened up with a hail of bullets on a random pickup truck. They had zero intention of taking him alive.

That, and they just let the house burn to the ground, waiting until it was merely smouldering to go in. Sure, he was armed, but it seemed like the wanted to make sure the guy was entirely cremated before doing anything. Not that we should be surprised. Cop killers rarely make it to trial.
