The only thing the Sifter can make from a paperclip is a slightly crooked line. Brett on the other hand, makes incredible miniature weapons from multiple paperclips and glue. Now we just need some miniature warriors to wield these amazing paperclip weapons and office boredom would be forever cured!
In the fall of 1944, the United States and its allies launched a secret mission code-named Operation Paperclip. The aim was to find and preserve German weapons, including biological and chemical agents, but American scientific intelligence officers quickly realized the weapons themselves were not enough.
It's just a few months after the landings at Normandy and you have Allied forces making their way across the continent, headed toward Berlin and Munich, and with them, sort of scattered among the soldiers, are these small teams of scientific intelligence officers. And they are searching for the Reich's weapons. And they don't know what they might find.
One example was they had no idea that Hitler had created this whole arsenal of nerve agents. They had no idea that Hitler was working on a bubonic plague weapon. That is really where Paperclip began, which was suddenly the Pentagon realizing, "Wait a minute, we need these weapons for ourselves."
Symbols related to the royal family and state had already been banned, and they wanted a clever way of displaying their rejection of the Nazi ideology. In addition to wearing a single paperclip, paperclip bracelets and other types of jewellery were fashioned as well, symbolically binding Norwegians together in the face of such adversity.
Nevertheless, the idea that the paperclip was invented by a Norwegian man was prevalent and the fact that paperclips bound things together and were cheap, readily available, and not out of place made it seemingly the perfect symbol for non-violent, subtle resistance in Norway.
"Fall of 1944, right after the Normandy landings, scattered among the Allies' troops are these little units of scientific intelligence officers and they're working to find out Hitler's biological weapons, his chemical weapons and his atomic weapons," said Jacobsen, author of "Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program to Bring Nazi Scientists to America."
These intelligence officers eventually discovered while the atomic weapons program was not as advanced as initially feared, Hitler's biochemical weapons were. The hunt "for this scientific treasure and ultimately for the scientists themselves" thus ignited Operation Overcast, renamed Paperclip for the paperclips attached to the files of the most "troublesome cases," Jacobsen writes in her book.
Walter Schreiber, a former Nazi general, also oversaw inhumane medical experiments involving bioweapons that resulted in countless of deaths. Following the war, he was captured by the Soviets but defected to the U.S. He worked for various government entities before finally settling in Texas at the Air Force School of Aviation Medicine, Jacobsen writes.
When large numbers of German scientists began to be discovered in late April, Special Sections Subdivision set up the Enemy Personnel Exploitation Section to manage and interrogate them. The Enemy Personnel Exploitation Section established a detention center, DUSTBIN, first in Paris and later in Kransberg Castle outside Frankfurt. The U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) established the first secret recruitment program, called Operation Overcast, on July 20, 1945, initially "to assist in shortening the Japanese war and to aid our postwar military research". The term "Overcast" was the name first given by the German scientists' family members for the housing camp where they were held in Bavaria. In late summer 1945, the JCS established the JIOA, a subcommittee of the Joint Intelligence Community, to directly oversee Operation Overcast and later Operation Paperclip. The JIOA representatives included the army's director of intelligence, the chief of naval intelligence, the assistant chief of Air Staff-2 (air force intelligence), and a representative from the State Department. In November 1945, Operation Overcast was renamed Operation Paperclip by Ordnance Corps officers, who would attach a paperclip to the folders of those rocket experts whom they wished to employ in the United States.
Using a gun isn't the usual M.O. for a villain as capable as Bullseye. Although Bullseye has used guns, he can simply pick anything around him to use as a catastrophic tool of destruction. These are the 10 weirdest things Bullseye has used as weapons.
Pretty much everyone wants to forget the infamous 2003 Daredevil film. That is not to say that the film brought some of the most interesting Bullseye moments. One of which occurs when Bullseye, played by Colin Farrell, gets an ear full of hazing from a drunk patron at the bar. Bullseye sees this as an opportunity to exact some justice, using a paperclip. Bullseye cuts the paperclip into tiny pieces, and hurls them at the neck of the drunkard, with fatal results.
Yes, Bullseye has used a dog as a weapon. That just shows how horrid of a villain Bullseye can be when met with adversity. In Sinister Spider-Man #4, Bullseye hurls a dog at Venom, to distract the symbiote. Thankfully, the dog was unharmed, as was Venom and his human host. Bullseye will use literally anything to ward off attackers, even if that means using a life that is smaller than his own. That is super-villainy at its best.
Bullseye was once involved in a fight that led to him having some teeth knocked out. How did he respond? By spitting said knocked out tooth back at the attacker like a bullet, killing him instantly. Not only are Bullseye's hand's lethal objects, but apparently, he can shoot things from his mouth with the same velocity. Daredevil was met with the same weapon once, where Bullseye flicked his teeth at Daredevil so fast, they became lodged in the billy club Daredevil uses so frequently. No easy task, as the billy club is made of Grade-A aluminum.
Bullseye found his way to pretending to be Hawkeye, like many other heroes costumes he has stolen in the past. While casually cruising around the sewer in Hawkeye's garb, Bullseye found his opportunity to use one of his many unorthodox weapons.
It should not be a shock that Bullseye has used a billy club to cause some serious harm to Daredevil. That is, in fact, the main weapon that Daredevil uses. But it is the way that Bullseye has used it once to kill Daredevil. Bullseye and Daredevil have been fighting one another for decades, it was not until more recently that Bullseye was finally able to kill Daredevil. The maligned pair got into a brutal streetlight that resulted in Bullseye grabbing Daredevil's billy club and jamming it right through the skull of Daredevil, a pretty horrific ending for Daredevil.
A major plotline of the TV show Hunters involves the uncovering of Operation Paperclip, a top-secret program that brought thousands of Nazi officials into the United States and helped them cover up their brutal pasts. The controversial series is fictional, but Operation Paperclip is based on a real program involving United States and other countries actively recruiting Nazi scientists to work on domestic weapons programs.
The US, as well as Britain, was engaged in an arms race with the Soviet Union. The Cold War was a terrifying time of escalating arms races, and recruiting Nazi weapons experts instead of bringing them to justice was seen as a key way to gain an edge. Still, the program was seen as morally problematic, and officials were keen to shroud it in secrecy.
Approximately 20,000 workers died at the camp. Yet despite the horrendous conditions for the Mittlewerk slave laborers, the factory produced high level technology and weapons. It was this expertise that the United States was willing to do anything to obtain, even ignoring the crimes of a Nazi scientist such as Rudolph.
Braun was brought to the US in 1945 and for the next fifteen years he worked for the US Army, most notably as chief of the US Army ballistic weapon program. He oversaw teams that developed the Redstone, Jupiter-C, Juno and Pershing missile systems. Under his command, an incredible 120 former Nazi scientists worked on these and other jet systems.
Dying Light 2 features a variety of different zombie-killing weapons for Aiden to use. Although most of these are disposable and break easily, there are a few more unique ones that last a little bit longer and are worth keeping an eye out for.
One such weapon is the bow, which is its own weapon class within Dying Light 2. There are several throughout the game, although you'll find the first one around the halfway point as you enter the game's second map, the Central Loop.
For a world that doesn't have any guns, the bow is one of the only long-range weapon choices you'll have in Dying Light 2, besides the also-hard-to-find crossbow. One of its biggest advantages is that it doesn't degrade with use, meaning that as long as you've got the ammo,
The United States eventually planted a flag on the lunar surface, though without the help of any orbital reactors. And all through the Space Race, von Braun, a German scientist scooped up by the U.S. in the waning days of World War II, was the public face of the American space program, as well as one of its chief architects. But much of the Cold War-era coverage of von Braun downplayed the darker details of his past: before he was building rockets for America, he was building them for Hitler. Germany launched more than 3,000 missiles of his design against Britain and other countries, indiscriminately killing approximately 5,000 people, while as many as 20,000 concentration camp prisoners died assembling the weapons.
Key Point: Although German rockets and jets were very advanced, many of their other areas of technology were unimpressive. America did built some of its weapons based on what it learned from the Nazis, but overall the haul was disappointing. 2b1af7f3a8
