A look at the life and work of Bill Hicks – a boundary-crossing comic who challenged nearly everything held sacred in contemporary America.  From the MLK and JFK assassinations to the bible, Hicks used his humor and sometimes dark satire to shed new light on American society.  Near the peak of his career, Bill Hicks was censored by the media bosses not for his use of foul language, but rather for his questioning of the government and media and their role in turning Americans into thoughtless, docile “consumers.”

If you like George Carlin, you’ll probably enjoy Bill Hicks!

In spring of 2013, Texas-based start up TrackingPoint Solutions released the first ever precision-guided firearm, which is essentially a long-range, laser-guided robo rifle. Call it the gun of tomorrow: The technology is so advanced we’ve heard it can have beginners killing at extreme distances with single-shot accuracy in mere minutes.

The PGF’s closed-loop system is based off jetfighter lock and launch technology, something TrackingPoint CEO Jason Schauble says not only marks the next great paradigm shift in the evolution of firearms—it helps users make ethical kill shots too. But critics of the PGF platform, no doubt part and parcel of a rising tide of intelligent killer apps, say the gun, or rather its proprietary scope, marks the dawn of “skill-free killing”.
