The Things You Learn

Yesterday evening, as I was watching City of God, (a fantastic portrayal of life in the slums of Rio de Janeiro) the term "30-06" (the rifle) flashed across the subtitles. When I saw it, I had an slap-the-forhead epiphany.

Me: Wait, it's not "thirty yacht six" (which never made any sense to me, but as a non-hunter, never gave much thought to). It's "thirty aught six." Hmm.

The things you learn in the slums of Rio.
