For some stupid reason, you can't just go out and buy yourself a 40mm grenade launcher nowadays, which is a real bummer for enterprising civilians who want to play around with explosively launched single use video cameras. So it's a good thing you can just go out and buy a 37mm flare launcher instead.
We all own lots of very complicated things, from cars to laptops, and they always cost way more to fix than they should. It's definitely not because the parts actually cost that much, because as it turns out, you can just make them yourself for 10x cheaper.
Name a couple of athletes that have defied odds? Jackie Robinson, Lance Armstrong and Venus Williams are just a few that come to mind. Dmitriy Bibikow is another.

Coming at'cha after the long weekend, today kicks off "Superhero Week" on DVICE, brought to you by Syfy's upcoming show, Alphas. What can you expect? Well, we're not going to take our mask off just yet, but awesome art from one Mr. Joshua Ellingson like you see above, and sweet, sweet superhero goodness like you see below, from today until next Monday.
