GOATS 2.png
 
HORROR SHOW: BESIDES A VIRTUAL CRASH COURSE IN BALLISTICS, ILLUSTRATED WITH  A COUPLE MORTAR-SIZED BULLET MOCK-UPS, THE HEARINGS PROVIDED SOME HARROWING EXHIBITS - AMONG THEM A MANNEQUIN DRAPED WITH THE PRESIDENT'S BLOOD-BLOTCHED CLOTHES AND A SERIES OF BIZARRE FILM CLIPS DEMONSTRATING THE EXPLOSIVE EFFECT OF RIFLE BULLETS ON A CAN OF TOMATOES, A SKULL FILLED WITH GELATIN, AND A LIVE GOAT. SIGNIFICANTLY, THE GOAT WAS CONVULSED BY NEUROMUSCULAR SPASM AFTER BEING SHOT BETWEEN THE EYES IN AN ARMY BALLISTICS EXPERIMENT. LARRY STURDIVAN, A WOUND BALLISTICS EXPERT FROM THE ARMY'S EDGEWOOD ARSENAL, HASTILY ASSURED THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE THAT SUCH EXPERIMENTS HAD LONG SINCE BEEN DISCONTINUED. BUT THE IMPORTANT POINT HE SCORED WAS THAT5 A SIMILAR REACTION  MOST PROBABLY CAUSED THE PRESIDENT'S HEAD TO SNAP BACKWARD...
