Why did the US Military replace the M16 with the M4, even though the M16 is clearly a better weapon?

2021.11.28 21:07 Late-Print8646 Why did the US Military replace the M16 with the M4, even though the M16 is clearly a better weapon?

Replacing the M16A4 with the M4 and M4A1 was a huge, and stupid, mistake. The M4's barrel length of 14.5 inches is not enough to get proper ballistics out of the 5.56 NATO round. The M16A4's 20" barrel, on the other hand, gives it vastly superior range and muzzle velocity (exactly what we could've used back in Afghanistan, where troops complained about not being able to hit their targets at long range). The M4 makes since in a limited role, given to people who don't fight much, like the M1 carbine before it. But for people who's actual goal is too fight and kill, M16 is better.

2021.11.28 21:07 stevez037 If this show had licensed commercial songs

What license commercial songs do you feel could fit in this show?
I was thinking when watching the "Saving Christmas", they mentioned the 1980's, and so many great songs. What commercial songs could you envision on this show if this show used commercial songs.
Giving the super natural stuff, at some point "Thriller" could be used. If you do an episode about a slumber party "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".
An under rated song, I saw this recently on South Park, "Stir It Up" that is a great song, that fits almost anywhere.

2021.11.28 21:07 Thr0wawayPickle [UPDATE] My (19F) boyfriend (18M) just passed away and his Mother wants his ashes but I don't think that's fair.

hi everyone! link to og post
I wanted to make a couple of clarifications because lots of you seemed confused. I did not want to take his ashes, if you read the post I said that his mother was always going to keep the ashes I just wanted a necklace with some in it. Some of you asked about his father. His dad lived a few hours away, he did have kind of a better relationship with my boyfriend but it wasn't exactly a lot better.
I also wanted to say thank you to most of you for being so nice and understanding when commenting in my previous post :) ok now for the update sorry!!
It took me quite a bit to not be super mad. I was more upset that I wouldn't have any of him. on top of that her message saying that I couldn't have anything seemed aggressive even if she didn't mean for it to be. Lots of you said that because he lived with me I could at least have his clothes but I gave her most of his clothes when she asked for them prior to knowing that I wasn't getting anything.
I had an Instagram account that only my boyfriend followed and it just consists of me ranting and lashing out in form of text rather than taking it out on people irl or getting mad at myself. It's a silly outlet that I use when I feel what I feel in that moment, after I get it out of my system, it's easier for me to articulate how I actually feel rather than just seeing red. I ranted on there about his mother just because I was so upset. Little did I know she had his phone and looked through my Instagram posts and all of our messages with one another. She was livid. She went to my mother and told her that I was borderline cyberbullying her and everything because of what I had said and extremely hyperbolized what I actually had said. My mother already knew about my rants though because I tell her everything that I'm feeling and she tried to talk my boyfriends mother down. I'll be honest, I did actually feel really bad because I said some mean things, but I didn't think that anyone would ever see anything like that. I wanted to apologize for hurting her feelings but my mother was too busy arguing with her. some of the convo went kinda like this:
my mom: It's her way of dealing with her emotions I don't know why you're going through his phone.
his mom: She said that he wouldn't want his body to be with me and that she hated me.
my mom: I'm sorry but she's not wrong.
and then they argued some more. Eventually I wrote my own apology because I genuinely never wanted to hurt her feelings. Even though I don't like the woman because of what she did, I know she would already feel an incredible amount of guilt. She did forgive me but we are still on weird terms.
FINALLY. the day of his funeral arrived. My mom and I made the order of service cards and confirmed that they wake was still on with the location (just in case his mother tried to cancel it behind our backs). I spoke. She spoke. To be honest, the day was a blur. I don't really remember much that happened but I remember seeing a big beautiful rainbow. I'm still not allowed to have any of his ashes but I'm over arguing. I'll just put some of his hair in a pendant or something. I am glad knowing that he's at peace and I'm glad knowing that I will most likely never speak to his mother again.

They're just so bad, lol. To have a question required that asks about how COVID impacted your academic performance just sucks. And the one that asks how I'm gonna change the world due to my experience at UT Austin, like what? How tf am I supposed to know? So annoying

2021.11.28 21:07 a_good_tuna Seeking a teacher/mentor. Where to look when there are no local options? Online?

Apologies if this has been asked before.
Essentially, I've been studying Buddhism on my own for a while, non-committal, just browsing. I've read a few books, spent a couple of years digesting it all, and now I am interested in seeking a mentor or teacher. Naturally, the first thing I did was to check my area. No dice. Being a post-pandemic world, I figure online options must surely exist, but it's probably something that doesn't circulate that much or isn't widely advertised.
I wonder if anyone here could please let me know if you've sought online lessons and how it went. Or maybe if you know of other options to seek to learn.
Thanks! Here is a duck for your trouble: 🦆
