Yes it can, but from what I have seen is that it requires a teacher who loves math and has a fairly deep understanding of it (by which I mean when I ask why this equals that, they can show the proof and explain it). I am amazed how so few people who should know, have never heard of a 3-4-5 triangle, one of my best friends actually.

The problem with subsonic ammunition is that is is low powered and has ballistic characteristics that are very different from normal ammunition; as well there is usually not sufficient power to cycle a semi automatic gun. With silencers...well they need to be cleaned about every 10 shots to maintain effectiveness, let us also not forget that most combatants will not be worried about noise!

Often it is about coverage. I live in south Dakota and Verizon is the only one with coverage dang near everywhere so if we want cell coverage out in the sticks we are stuck. however I agree to a point with if you pay it they will charge. 30 bucks a month for unlimited data. Data is digital, is 1 or 0. Voice is digital, is either 1 or 0. Difference?
