Wow, the chances two bullets would even touch must be pretty insane, but to hit head on, perfect enough to compress into each other rather than deflect off, is crazy. I guess, if they'd been 0.1 of a degree different, both gunmen would be dead...

I know what you mean though - interestingly I came across a story from the first world war where a british sniper was lining up a shot when his rifle bucked in his arms and refused to shoot.
A German sniper had seen him and taken a shot, not only had the german rounf gone down the barrel of the Briish sniper, but when it came out of the rifle it came out of one of the only bits that didn't hit the sniper.

Budapest at 70 gigapixels

Fascinating just panning and zooming around - shame that so much of it is just trees.

That's amazing. When you click the thumbnails and it zooms you all the way in. In fact, look at the thumbnail and see if you see them. I was thinking 'where the hell is this plane?' and it zooms in from such distance!
