Perez, who is pregnant, told police that Ruiz wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting a book while he was holding it, as he believed that the book would stop the bullet

:wtf:

The gun used was a .50 calibre Desert Eagle.

Jesus, how much dumber can our species yet become...

Speechless...

Perez resisted the idea of using a gun, but said Ruiz convinced her to, reported Buzzfeed.

Sounds like suicide to me.

I watched one of those video fail compilations of people and guns on Youtube a few days ago so this doesn't really surprise me.
As someone who was brought up by a non-idiot father with an almost obsessive amount of respect for the ins-and-outs of gun safety it was a hard watch, even though no-one in that vid was killed.
This stuff is not good for my Nihilism.

:crylaugh: stopping a 50 cal with a book, might as well run onto the highway at night and stop a car in the fast lane with the palm of your hand, result would be the same ...

Bullet Tooth Tony: Like a prick, you are having second thoughts. You are shrinking, and your two little balls are shrinking with you. And the fact that you've got "Replica" written down the side of your guns...
[Zoom in on the side of Sol's gun, which indeed has "REPLICA" etched on the side; zoom out, as they sneak peeks at the sides of their guns]
Bullet Tooth Tony: And the fact that I've got "Desert Eagle point five O"...
[Withdraws his gun and puts it on the table]
Bullet Tooth Tony: Written down the side of mine...
[They look, zoom in on the side of his gun, which indeed has "DESERT EAGLE .50" etched on the side]
Bullet Tooth Tony: Should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now... **** off

At close range. More like trying to stop a speeding train with a... um, book. A 50 cal round would probably still have enough energy to paint the walls behind you with your vaporized innards after exploding a book at close range.

I'd be surprised if the bullet didn't lodge itself deep into the wall behind him.
