  The JFK Assassination Single Bullet Theory
The result was an alignment that showed the bullet leaving Kennedy's throat to strike Connally in the back hear the shoulder — which is where Connally was actually struck.
If the Single Bullet Theory is true, then Kennedy had to be hit at the same time, and again, detailed scrutiny of the film shows this was likely the case.
The chain of evidence for CE 399 was in fact intact, and the Warren Commission traced its possession from discovery by Tomlinson to analysis by the FBI.

  Bullet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word "bullet" is often incorrectly used to refer to the combination of bullet, case, gunpowder and primer; such an item is correctly called a cartridge.
The original musket bullet was a spherical lead ball two sizes smaller than the bore, wrapped in a loosely fitting paper patch which formed a tight seal so the full pressure of the expanding gas would propel the bullet.
Another method of stabilization is for the center of mass of the bullet to be as far forward as practical as in the minnie ball or the shuttlecock.

 Bullet time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bullet time (often hyphenated as bullet-time) is a concept introduced in recent films and computer games whereby the passage of time is displayed as extremely slow or frozen moments in order to allow a viewer to observe imperceptibly fast events (such as flying bullets).
Bullet time has been used in many computer and video games, particularly since the popularisation of the effect by The Matrix, and is technically trivial to implement (as all objects in the scene are generated and controlled by the computer).
A sort of bullet time can be activated in the Bloodrayne series of games, called dilluted perception; wherein the main character (a half vampire) speeds up the rate at which she proccesses information, causing everything to seem slower, including the player character.

 Bullet (typography) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bullets are most often used in technical writing or reference works to introduce a series of related items.
Bulleted items, commonly called "bullets", are usually terminated with a full stop (unless they do not form complete sentences), although it is also a common practice (for example, in Portugal) to terminate every item except the last one with a semicolon.
Prior to widespread use of word processors, bullets were often denoted by asterisks, and several word processors automatically convert asterisks to bullets if used at the start of line.

 Silver Bullet Encyclopedia Article @ AlienArtifacts.com (Alien Artifacts)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Traditionally, the silver bullet is the only weapon that can kill a witch, vampire, monster, or a person living a charmed life.
The best known magical creature which is vulnerable to a silver bullet is a werewolf, though this is not authentic folklore; the werewolf's vulnerability to silver actually dates back to the 1941 movie The Wolf Man (in which the title character actually succumbs to a silver-headed walking stick, not a bullet).
A Silver Bullet is also slang for a martini cocktail because it "is clear, potent and never misses its mark," but this usage is on the decline.

 No Silver Bullet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
No Silver Bullet - essence and accidents of software engineering is a well-known paper on software engineering written by Fred Brooks in 1986.
Brooks argues that there will be no more technologies or practices that will serve as "silver bullets" and create a 10-fold improvement in programmer productivity over 10 years.
At the heart of the argument is the distinction between accidental complexity and essential complexity.

 Bullet III - A Part of UK Network History.
Bullet was originally designed to be a MUD (Multi-User Dungeon) based upon well known British children's television programmes such as "The Magic Roundabout" and "The Wombles" which would include a bulletin board in one of the rooms.
Bullet III has been worked upon intermittently ever since, being ported firstly to UCL's Pyramid, the temporary replacement for Euclid, and then to the IBM RS6000's which are the permanent replacement for Euclid.
Bullet III has also run on a number of other systems such as the original Tardis system at Edinburgh University, Olajier, a public access BBS at Imperial College London (now closed) and Milliways, an open BBS run by the Swansea University Computer Society (which now runs a much simpler bulletin board system).

Mickey Rourke is Butch "Bullet" Stein and the late Tupac Shakur is Tank in this stylish, Julien Temple-directed crime drama.

As for the storyline: Bullet (Mickey Rourke) gets out of prison and the very same day, exacts revenge on Tank (Tupac) by robbing some of his smack customers and stabbing one his dealers in the eye.

 Stray Bullet
Meanwhile, half your bullets went through the apartment window, blowing it to smithereens, the glass falling and lacerating the face and upper body of a bike messenger who happened to be (illegally) riding his bike on the sidewalk downstairs.
The glass didn't stop the bullets, but the bricks of the building across the street did - not before they tunnelled half-way through them, and the bricks sufficed only because the bullets had lost enough energy to glass and the air between here and there.
Bullets carry an impressive amount of energy and, yes, can penetrate brick, and can ricochet around, too, so you can't even assume that if it's not in a straight line it's safe.

 No Silver Bullet Essence and Accidents of Software Engineering
It told workers that progress would be made stepwise, at great effort, and that a persistent, unremitting care would have to be paid to a discipline of cleanliness.
Not only are there no silver bullets now in view, the very nature of software makes it unlikely that there will be any--no inventions that will do for software productivity, reliability, and simplicity what electronics, transistors, and large-scale integration did for computer hardware.
It is, after all, just another high-level language, and the biggest payoff from such languages came from the first transition--the transition up from the accidental complexities of the machine into the more abstract statement of step-by-step solutions.

 DVD Verdict Review - Bullet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
But when big time drug boss Tank discovers that Bullet is back on the streets, he vows to settle a cellblock vendetta.
Bullet can't quite make up its mind if it wants to be a tense crime thriller, an exploration of mental illness, a study of family in freefall (call it Unordinary People), or a showcase for Mickey Roarke's post canvas naps plastic surgery.
All this abnormality turns Bullet into a campy car wreck of a film, something that is eminently watchable and occasionally laugh out loud goofy (like when Bullet labels his muscle exposing pretty boy of a friend a latent homosexual—or anytime Ted Levine is on camera in his dirty skivvies).
