Apparently its not a fallacy; some kid was killed this 000
in LA. Skulls are weaker than the sectional density of
jacketed lead x terminal velocity, apparently. They
apparently will puncture auto sheetmetal. Fun surprise in
the morning after. Mother found kid in pool of blood.
Too little time-exposure to evolve thicker skulls. Put
it on the fixes for H sap v 2.0
Maybe LAPD should distribute free wax-blanks in a variety of
calibers in the appropriate sections of towns.
