Link roundup

1. "Kalashnikov AK-74 assault rifles are used as door handles at a restaurant in downtown Moscow"

2. An ARkStorm is a hypothetical but scientifically realistic "megastorm" scenario:
It describes an extreme storm that might impact much of California causing up to $725 billion in losses (most caused by flooding), and affect a quarter of California's homes. The event would be similar to exceptionally intense California storms which occurred between December 1861 and January 1862. The name "ARkStorm" means "Atmospheric River."
