  1. Good old R-7/Soyuz. Heavy on the old...1957 and 1967 respectively. The US does have two pretty much ready to go...no matter Boeing's little code mistake. That it free returned exactly as advertised was more of a concern for any potential passenger.
  2. Some folks REALLY want Russia to be the enemy. It's sort of a 1984 thing as near as I can tell. Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.
  3. Meanwhile, Canada is actively trying to remove Venezuela's leader...that's okay, though.
  4. People never question the veracity of...for example...the Battle of Midway in June of 1942. There is virtually no physical evidence that it occurred other than a few grainy photos and the word of the few veterans still alive that might have participated. What the Japanese and thus the rest of us know about the battle is that four of Japan's fleet carriers and nearly all the aircrews involved in the Pearl Harbor attack were suddenly gone. Blip...no longer a factor in the War in the Pacific. We all assume they were sunk by US Navy aircraft. But, hey...perhaps it was all just a big fake. Never happened... What we do know about the Holocaust...other than the obvious physical evidence like Birkenau...is the missing Jews & similar victims of the SS...no longer at that address. The surviving Poles, Soviets, Hungarians and Germans in particular couldn't help but notice. But, hey....perhaps it was all....
  5. The mines he built were for use...not decoration. He could be responsible for many KIAs and WIAs.
  6. The grenade just threw itself. Happens all the time.
  7. Mach 8.6 rocket sled...beyond fast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuYIbYVLF4k
  8. If Hitler's OWN words as to why he hated the Jews aren't good enough for you, nothing will be. Thus the accusation of sea-lioning...which is what you're doing. You're free to deny the Holocaust happened...or the Battle of Midway...or Stalingrad...or Moon Landings...or any other thing your brain can devise. It doesn't change history...though you would if you could...but you can't...so I don't care.
  9. I like The Rebel's question to the protesters: "What is being carried in the gas pipeline?" Responses were... Bitumen! Crude oil! Black death! Think of the environment if there's a spill! Doh!
  10. Trump does the pace lap at Daytona with The Beast...his 22,000 lb armored limo. Air Force One does a fly by. Crowd goes wild.

  11. You have yet to explain metallicity in relation to your Genesis fable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallicity
  12. Whenever I see Bernie, this starts playing in my head...
  13. Jee and outside experts had big caveats for her number. She used only two gravitational lenses, which were all that were available, and so her margin of error is so large that it's possible the universe could be older than calculated, not dramatically younger.
  14. Like with the Rebs in South Park, the Democrats are only fired-up when they've got themselves a belly full of S'mores Schnapps...that is...Trump...and a good witch burning. When faced with actual questions of plans and such for the economy...well....zzzzzzzzzzz...that's boring! Back to Trump bashing...
  15. Successful...payload separation. Cygnus is also Grumman-Northrop...now it plays catch-up for three days. Good ISS viewing if it's passing over your region...
  16. Russia still takes its nuclear arsenal very seriously. It seems to have managed to get the rest of the bugs out of the RSM-56 Bulava, as well...with several confirmed submerged launches as well as an apparent ice pack surface launch.
  17. ISS still out over Pacific...coming around fast. Yeah...a lot of folks don'y understand the USSF and imagine some sort of Buck Rogers like activity. In reality it's just the logical evolution much like the USAF. Until the USSF, every branch of the military...NASA...Elon...all pretty much did their own thing. Quite uncoordinated at times. No more...
  18. More good military history channels... BazBattles https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx-dJoP9hFCBloY9qodykvw Mark Fenton Productions https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfCKvREB11-fxyotS1ONgww
  19. I've been enjoying this channel over the past few months. Quite detailed for what it covers. Feel free to add yours. Kings and Generals https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMmaBzfCCwZ2KqaBJjkj0fw Similar...newer...Historymarche https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8MX9ECowgDMTOnFTE8EUJw
  20. They were going to arrest Ezra for jaywalking...public enemy #1.
