I'd say Vierling as there are 4 barrels. (And that would be Dreiling for 3, not Drilling.)

Probably made in its time by Prinz Waffen.

This is the US bub. No metric hocus pocus here.

BTW, I learned something, thank you. I never really got interested in these critters and assumed that the word referred to some aspect of the manufacture. Now I shall be henceforth <more> insufferable :D

The Isetta is just being used to transport it to the Toyota dealership where it will be mounted on a Land Cruiser like this one.

And to make up for beating our sons like dogs, every Christmas we'll give them shit that will insure they want to die a horrible death in a battle far far away.

Primates with Plutonium indeed. Ya know, it's only one planet out of billions. But, it's probably time to end this experiment. :)

We only have the one data point.

Perhaps out there in the universe primates always end up with plutonium, because that's just how primates roll once they reach a certain point.

If you want to be teleological about it, we're nature's way of making more plutonium. :)

You just don't get it.

Nature wants more plutonium than that, particularly on inhabited planets.

There are two things Nature loves that require the evolution of primates.

More plutonium and Chiffon margarine.
