obviously no one understood my comment
i was talking about how my grandmother got too old to do certain things and how thats ok
shes old and thats part of getting old. right now shes just waiting to die in a home

Yes. Clearly the circularly oriented keys are in the space places as the rectangular ones.
0 is definitely right beside 1 on my keyboard aswell.

You do realize he had a plate carrier on right? That means no bruises and shit

Depends on the lead. The plate prevents penetration, but the kinetic energy still gotta go somewhere. Some good mesh and plate can knock the force down quite a bit, but you'll still feel that bullet. I'd say a 9mm would be about a decent punch.

Distributed load.

The plate absorbs shock and spreads it out over a much larger area before the energy is transferred to the person's chest. Spreading out the pressure over a large area means less bodily harm.

When you get shot while only wearing kevlar, the "fabric" doesn't spread the kinetic energy as quickly before it makes it to the shootee. That means the force is applied to a smaller area and you end up with great big bruises.

The speed at which the kinetic energy is distributed is related to the density of the material.

Distributed load (in reverse) is why a rifle round can pierce armor that a deer slug can't. They have similar kinetic energy, but a rifle round applies that same energy to a much smaller, more focused area.

Yup, that's how they work.

But, again, the kinetic energy has to go somewhere. For this 9mm that's around 400ft-lbs of force. For a 7.62 it's about ~1,500 ft-lbs over a couple square feet of chest. It's way better than dying, but you won't be happy about it regardless of the plate.

You'd feel a push, but it wouldn't leave welts and shit like he was describing. Between the weight of the bullet and the fact that the steel is harder than the lead core, most of the energy dissipates on impact or is absorbed by the plate

Because 5 years is a decent time in a made-up story
