Well, I had intended to make an intricate story about a mob hit, full of vivid descriptions and a moving storyline. But the wait time to get approved to Offtopic kind of pulled all the spunk out of me. That's ok, I can still do a half-assed story with the intention of getting my question answered... Okay, let's start off with this guy named Tony (nah, not Tony Sorpano, some other Tony). He's been talking with the Feds and the family knows. He has a price on his head, but he doesn't know. Life is fine for him, he whistles as he walks to his Caddy. Tony has the habit of starting his car with his remote, can't be too careful, right? He does that today, no explosion, but he wasn't expecting one. Tony opens the door and sits down. Just as he's closing the door he sees a 'glint' in the corner of his right eye, coming from beyond the passenger window. He never gets the chance to turn and see what it was, the bullet was too fast. Tony was dead before traveled half-way through his brain. He never saw his own blood splattered on the driver's side window. My question is, how exactly does that blood get splattered on the window? Isn't the spray caused by the bullet exiting the body? If that's the case, where does the bullet go? It seems like it would continue on, making a hole in the glass. But in all Hollywood productions there is never a hole, or shattered glass, just the blood splatter. Is this just Hollywood? Causing a graphic spectacle by showing the last remnants of thought splattered on the window, or is it how real life is? If it's real life, what causes the splatter? And what happens with the bullet?
