The GAU-8; the gun that the a-10 warthog is built around.
Most people never have to do anything hard in their entire lives, their idea of overcoming adversity is pulling an all night study session, or to work a little over-time, or to not be able to afford the leopard skin pants they’ve always wanted and actually have to save for something rather than get the instant gratification of their every need being attended to. Kids aren’t allowed to lose so there is a trophy for everyone. Hurtful words are now being equated to physical violence, which is comical. We go to war and only 0.45% of the population answers the call for over 11 years. There is no rise in taxes to cover the two wars we were engaged in, so the average citizen doesn’t suffer at all. Increasingly we are told that we are the smartest, most handsome, most amazing people in the whole world, even if we haven’t done a goddamn thing to earn that status. In short, people have no idea what sacrifice looks like anymore.
No words can describe the immeasurable pleasure that this picture gives me.
