Think I’m going have to resign myself to the fact that I’m never going to have a proper beard.

The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.

Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.

Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”

They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.

“This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”

Check Out The Incredible World Of Snails

Snails don’t get a lot of love, in a world of kittens and puppies, the snail rating on the cuteness scale is about a negative 12. But that’s only because we never get a good look at their lives up close.

Ukraine-based artist and photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko aims to change that with his photographs showing the world the way snails see it, with giant berries, treacherous raindrops, and hardcore make-out sessions perched atop flower petals.
