Kind of makes my earlier post of range behavior seem miniscule. It's rather interesting that one finds the need to watch the shooter while the other can't. Do you suppose they break them out into groups based on performance ??
I think the picture is hilarious, but....
Look at the angle of the shooter to the "target stands". The target stands are way off to the shooter's right side. I think it's a propaganda trick to either show how fearless they are, or how little regard for life the Chinese have. Scare tactic to their enemies. (Which is U.S.)
If you don't mind being where you are, you are not lost.

themao is just a nickname. You see, my collegemates think that sometimes I can become an evil dictator when I'm around people. Especially when it involves homework, problem sets, etc. I also took a Chinese history class and was obsessed with some of Mao's sick stuff involving the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. I would start calling people "counter-revolutionaries" and crap like that. Combined with my hatred for Chinese Communists, I guess people started calling me "mao".
I'm basically an ANTI-MAO if anything, because I would probably put a pick axe into Fidel Castro if he ever walked into the same room with me. I'm very right wing in case people haven't noticed in my posts, so right-wing I don't even approve of 99% of what my own government does.
That aside, it's just a nick name due to my "mao" tendencies (except I keep my teeth clean) and because of my obsession/hatred of communists.
