Ever see a six hour pistol?

Watching Forensic Files on Netflix last night.
I have...and need... closed caption and I kinda read it alongside watching the program.
Suddenly I see...AND HEAR.... them mention finding a "Six hour pistol."



Then they SHOWED the gun.




Ahhhh.... A SIG-Sauer.

Somehow in my mind all I heard was Sean Connery saying “Shig Shower”

Yeah, it's made of wax, see? Once you take it out of the freezer,
it's only effective for six hours...

Naw, they're making pistols out of pykrete, but it should last longer than 6 measly hours!? Maybe that's when you start getting splinters?

If you think the person transcribing the subtitles is bad you wouldn't believe some of the things that show up when tranlating across a couple languages is thrown into the mix.

we went to see "The Godfather" when it came out in Frankfurt in 1972. I can tell you that it doesn't translate with subtitles. after about 30 minutes we asked the ticket girl when the English version was showing and it was the last show of the night. she let us use our tickets for the that showing

I've seen movies where the entire plot was changed in translation.

I think most TV closed captioning is done by a computer voice-recognition program. If the speaker isn't speaking very clearly or the vocabulary doesn't exist in the program, the computer throws whatever it considers close up on the screen. Go toForgotten Weapons and play the Hackathorn interview
http://www.forgottenweapons.com/ken-...on-vs-reality/
with closed captioning on. The computer's translation of Hackathorn's words is hilarious. There are "eat malfunctions" and "windy jishus" and more.

The 'six hour pistol' just may be a companion piece to the 'Arkansas Assault Rifle' mentioned at about the 1 minute 20 in this video about the Sutherland Springs, Texas church shooting.
