    I was referring to JIM#100.

I know.

    Any interpretation of JIM#100 leading us to believe anything but what was explicitly said is definitely going to be YOUR burden.

No, the burden is on YOU to prove that the bullets would have threatened Thor's life, when you have four additional incidents showing that Thor could withstand bullets just fine. You can't look at evidence in a vacuum. It has to mesh with other evidence or it becomes an aberration.

    Then why did he also say the sniper bullet could not penetrate Thor's skull, only his skin?

Because he felt that Thor's skull & bones are strong enough to withstand bullets.

    Do you have the reference you are alluding to? Maybe a bullet in his eye could yield more deadly result per Busiek but I speculate

Busiek said on this and the Avengers board that Thor would not block an attack that only left welts, stung him, or in no way threatened his life. He said that to block an attack that merely inconvenienced him would be unmanly, and that there would have to be a mortal danger (even though I have scans of Thor blocking an attack which he specifically says would not injure him).

    As an aside, that you were ready to concede welts for Thor speaks volume regarding his past. Don't you think?

In what capacity? Thor fans have always been willing to accept the evidence available -- which suggested that high caliber bullets could sting him and leave welts. It's Busiek that wanted to change the status quo with a new interpretation/agenda.

Those are simply the facts.
