Great minds think alike!!!

Post by maverick375 on Tue 9 Jun 2009 - 20:03

I was glancing over chapter 60 and had to laugh and feel a bit exhilarated when I saw that the bell tower the terrorists are using is the same one I considered for my Venice scene in my story. I ended up mentioning it as being discarded as an operation sniping point because of how obvious it was, the tallest thing around, and was being checked out by my bad guys. My Jamie ended up placing her shots from the roof of The Salute, which is visible in the one frame.

Great minds think alike, eh?

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

The Bell Tower of St. Mark's is one of the iconic structures of Venice.

So is the Santa Maria della Salute. I figured an 800 yard snipe across the canal was less obvious than the tower. I have to wonder if all of this violence being conducted on religious land marks is a bad omen. Smile

Here's my dialogue:


“Another problem...” Michael had been looking at the map and could see only one place to snipe from. “Where’s the sniper setting up?”

“Here,” He pointed to the southern point across the main canal. “At the Santa Maria della Salute.”

“What’s the range?” It looked a long way to Michael and he could shoot well out to five hundred yards.

“About Seven-hundred and fifty meters, or Eight-hundred yards.”

“Shit.” Things were getting better and better. “I take it you want Jamie to take the shots?”

“Yes. Can she do it?”

“Well, she could tell you better than I can, but her accuracy at six hundred yards is eighty-five percent. She’s only about fifty-six or so at eight. We really need Rico for this job.”

Jose did not like the chances of those shots either. “Is that the only possible spot to shoot from, Fermi?”
“Unfortunately, yes.” He pointed to a spot in the north side of the city. “This was my original choice since it’s the highest vantage point in range with a clear view of the roof, but while scouting I noticed that the guards check that position before they come on shift and they scan it often during it. It is the most logical place, after all. The Salute has the benefit of being too far away to be an obvious spot. To my knowledge, they haven’t scouted it at all.”

I would hazard a guess that the Pope prefers a united Italy over a divided one.

The Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

Who is disrespecting religion?

It's a point of fact that the current Pontiff wears red Prada slippers.

And as the Vicar of Christ and Bishop of Rome, I would think he'd prefer a united flock as opposed to a divided one.

Err... please bear in mind everyone has different levels of sensitivity towards such issues.

Personally I'm an atheist but I try my best to avoid race, religion and politics in my posts. Those are highly polarizing issues and almost always start fights.

Just curious, if Kiskaloo breaks a forum rule, can a moderator ban him? :adminsmash:

I personally have no sensitivity towards organized religion because I personally dislike it.

But I still don't see where I said anything incorrect or inflammatory that would require me to be disciplined for violating the rules of forum decorum. Puzzled
