  1. The Battle of Megiddo April 16th, 1457 BC...though the exact year is disputed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Megiddo_(15th_century_BC) The first detailed recorded battle...and thanks to that detailed Egyptian record keeping, we know more about this particular brawl than many modern events. Megiddo and Kadesh...
  2. Modern graverobbers...illegal naval salvage of old warships. Particularly battleships and cruisers. But why take the risk?? It's not like they're loaded with doubloons & pieces of eight.
  3. Refueling an RBMK-1000 Reaktor Bolshoy Moshchnosti Kanalnyy, "high-power channel-type reactor" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RBMK This is a Soviet era graphite moderated reactor that uses individual rod cooling chambers, possibly one of Chernobyl's ...kind of weird. But it's the oldest type of reactor still in wide use, apparently. Useful for power production, obviously...and weapons-grade Plutonium production. Scott's video on it...
  4. Operation Desoto January 27th to April 7th 1967 This was typical of US & ARVN operations pre-Tet Offensive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Desoto The Marines move into the Duc Pho Base Camp (Nui Dang) to attempt to pacify the region of VC and NVA activity. Almost daily action is seen for the next several months. The casualties were gawd awful....76 dead Marines and over 500 WIA. The Communists lost at least 383...the number of KIA recovered post-battle(s). Untold wounded. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Đức_Phổ_Base_Camp One of those body count thi
  5. Apollo 1...the tragedy of the pure oxygen environment. Due to be launched on February 21st, 1967, an electrical fire destroyed the capsule and killed the crew on this day, January 27th, 1967. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_1

      Pelosi's too busy eating ice cream out of her $10,000 dollar fridges, while holding up covid relief because Trump was still president.  There isn't a more disgusting creature in politics.

  10. The Douglas DC-8 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_DC-8 I spent a lot of time aboard various versions of this aircraft as a yoot. More than the 707 which I didn't really see a lot of at Canadian airports I frequented. Air Canada-TCA and Canadian Pacific both used the DC-8. CP I believed leased a bunch of 707s at some point to take care of the soaring demand for jet travel. I'm sure Air Canada did as well...but these rigs were the luxury machine of the day for many major airlines. First class REALLY was... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Canada_Air_Lines ht
  11. Denzel making too much sense for stupid reporter. Have dreams...but have goals... But that's not what 'equity' is about...equity is about taking my dream and giving it to someone else...and not getting a damn thing in return.
