    That's been around for quite a while. Even the original Mythbusters did an episode on it.

    Ricochets have been known to seriously injure if not kill people. These characters are obviously a little light in the intelligence department.

    I find it hard to believe that even an FMJ would look so nice after hitting something hard enough to reject it, and be able to sit there and spin for that long? I wonder what the conclusion of the Myth boys was? Were they able to replicate it? Probably a one in a million shot.

    speaking of halfwits.
    this is not as bad as a youtube video that was getting around where 2 guys tested a bullet proof vest.
    they did this by one donning the vest, and the other shot him in the chest with a 9mm. (from about 10 yds)
    it dropped him to the ground, moaning and groaning, and upon removal of the vest there was a bleed going on.
    the guy with the gun thought it was funny.

    I've killed quite a few muskrats by shooting them through ice thin enough to see them swimming underneath. First a buddy jumps on the den tunnel on shore and the panicked 'rat swims out to escape the commotion. .22LR RN will penetrate 3-4 cm of ice and still have enough power kill the muskrat. And that much ice is just thick enough to hold up a human stupid enough to try it. ( I was 15 yrs old at the time) We never got a "bounce back" with the soft lead .22 bullets, if the ice was too thick they just stayed in the hole. If the ice is "just right" you can pound a hole with a rock after, reach in and retrieve the dead rat. Made a bit of fur money that way.

    People who live in the colder climates come up with some of the craziest things I've heard of (and now seen).
    Not that us Southern Rednecks are any slouch when it comes to doing stupid stuff...
    All that video was missing was a guy saying "Hold my beer and watch this..."
