Monday Gunday: Effin' Fall

I'm feeling a bit lackadaisical today due to rain, headache, and family-in-the-path-of-the-hurricane drama, so I'm going to be lazy and post a wonderfully made video on the history of the FN FAL battle rifle.

But before I do:

  1. I'm not the only one to pronounce it "Effin' Fall," am I? It just seems cumbersome to say "Eff En Eff Ay Ell" all the time. 
  2. The narrator doesn't make this mistake -- thankfully -- but just because something is fully automatic doesn't make it a machine gun, okay? The news makes this mistake all the goddamn time, and it really gets me bent out of shape. 
  3. There's something really soothing about hearing a British voice narrating a documentary. Not sure why this is, but it's true.
