Maybe Trump should build his wall around the whole country so US citizens can all live in jail ?
I like the penis going maybe half way or maybe that's all there was :dJump to post
Without being there in the cockpit, it's hard to say why they did what they did. It could be any number of things that caused it, but the bottom line is this: the pilots recognized things weren't just right, and kept it safe by going around. Why try and Monday morning quarterback that decision? The...Jump to post
First there is pop and pop. There are genuine artists that "make it", and there are artists that are made. The line can of course be blurred. With K-Pop, there is no blurring, it's all made up. And the poor "stars" must live according to the script. With ridiculous backward rules.Jump to post
Also turbines are expensive, so are their maintenance. In this size aircraft, a single turbine might be more competitive than a twin. But single engine ops aren't allowed everywhere.
However cheap 100LL is not available everywhere, here in France it's more than twice the price of Jet A.
Light aircraft are often grounded until a structural or control part, or engine part, can be checked and replaced if necessary. Sometimes after one accident, when the cause is found, sometimes after several accidents (including such horrors are wings separating in flight). This crash doesn't indicat...Jump to post
Is a Quorum not required? Tugg No. When the Assemblée Nationale is in session, it means that all MP are officially convoked for that period. Same for the Senate. there are only a few special laws that need a quorum. Your quorum system leads to easy obstruction against the will of the voters. Intere...Jump to post
I am reading that two or three of the former SSRs have effectively destroyed independent judiciaries, press, and human rights. I am not reading that the EU is effectively addressing this. Have I missed some reporting, if so, provide links? The EU has indeed launched proceedings on Hungary, known as...Jump to post
If Iran blocks the Straits of Hormuz? Again, we do absolutely nothing. Let the Chinese figure it out--they've got a nice new deep sea navy. Iran is hectoring for war--they need it and crave it. Their economy is struggling. Their ideology, obviously corrupt. Which is why doing nothing is even more o...Jump to post
Keeping Turkey on the West's side has been an important goal of the US since WW2 at least, despite setbacks (like the Cyprus situation). I really don't know what should be done, and I have no love lost for Erdogan, but if Turkey ends up leaving NATO, that will be a big blow to Trump's legacy.Jump to post
R It is very simple, the area you are in is largely sourced with cheap hydo electricity. it is not unusual to see residences with electric home heat, easily one of the most wasteful uses of electricity. Really, any use of electricity for resistive heat such as water heaters, stoves, baseboard heate...Jump to post
I thought BoJo knew he was lying, but he talked about the implementation period after no-deal Brexit, meaning he doesn't understand that the implementation period is part of the withdrawal agreement.
Good luck, UK !
Sorry, I am not a subscriber and could read that. Here is what you're asking for : President Trump said Saturday that Iran was “very wise” not to shoot down a manned plane when it decided to down an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone. “There was a plane with 38 people yesterday. Did you see that? I th...Jump to post

What's the context here?
These low balled EIS dates are really annoying though. I think some start-ups have figured this, and now talk about 2025 or even 2030. I also have big doubts about the design of most of them. Sure, electric propulsion allows stuff, new materials allow stuff, but if you want to convince people electr...Jump to post
So Trump is basically thanking Iran for not having shot down a P-8 with 38 people on board. One commentator on that tweet says a P-8 has 8 crew members, and nowhere near 38 seats. Is Trump now getting his info from Iran directly ? IIRC the Iranian spokesman said "about 35 people" so even t...Jump to post
When I look at the curve, I see that tax rates have been lowered drastically, with income rising slightly. Show me the part that proves your point, that hiking taxes wouldn't bring more revenue, because I don't see it. Also, when are rates too low, according to you ? There is a global race to the bo...Jump to post
Many will say it all boils down to military power, but Bush W with his unnecessary war proved it wasn't. The result is Trump who is unwilling to go the same route (fortunately). It's all about the dollar. More and more people are realizing this, including in the US. That's why cryptocurrencies are p...Jump to post
I've only jumped out of Pilatus Turbo Porters (and a helo), in very good condition, one even brand new, bought for the skydiving operation. My concern with a light twin engine aircraft would be that they're prone to loss of control when one engine quits, if not handled correctly.Jump to post
Yep, makes sense to keep millions in the dark over who will lead them.Jump to post
I grew up with an old style electric stovetop as that was pretty standard in France (gas has not been favored since the building of many nuclear plants) so I was used to that. A friend of mine had a propane stovetop and I would be amazed at the speed it took to heat up some water or milk. Then we go...Jump to post

TM railed against the ECHR while it was local UK laws and judges that were making her job difficult. In France we have deported islamists without issue for decades. Many of them would then take refuge in the UK...Jump to post
The court was simply applying the law of the land, the UK as part of the EU has to allow anyone in the EU to open shop in the UK. It is in fact benefiting immensely from this. Are you also against the ECHR, and the International Criminal Court ? No one is saying the ruling is wrong but you are miss...Jump to post
There absolutely is. Anybody with half a brain knows that a strong independent judiciary is the antithesis of a totalitarian state. :roll: Remind us again which ECJ ruling you're most excited to have overturned? It isn't independent, it is an institution of the European Union. The Supreme Court of ...Jump to post

So the brits that pretend to lecture the EU on democracy, will have the next PM chosen by 160 000/ 45 000 000 = 0,35 % of the electorate.... Fake democracy. The British electorate does not elect a leader, it elects a party to government. The election of party leader is an internal process for the C...Jump to post
I'll back Airbus's whining about lost orders and unfair advantages when the EU allows Boeing a final assembly factory on their turf. Until then, this reeks of sour grapes. The biggest foreign investors in France are US companies, year after year. There is absolutely nothing preventing Boeing from b...Jump to post
One has to wonder how much technological progress has been lost in abortions. Roughly 1% of the population is considered to fall in the genius spectrum. There have been roughly 50 million abortions in the US alone since 1973. Reason enough for a company that relies on technological advances for its...Jump to post
Contrary to all here, I think Airbus' response is genius. They know the order is far from done and that at any time IAG can walk away from the 737MAX. They also know that if they provide a price that is lower than what IAG got from Boeing, IAG will try to and get Boeing to match Airbus' price. And ...Jump to post
So that the US can shut down our Air Force when the president has had a bad burger ? Non thanks.Jump to post
I think the EU deal on the north of Ireland is still available. And roughly speaking it says the goods on all of Ireland must be treated the same as the rest of Ireland (i.e., EU standards and tariffs). With that accomplished the UK deal with the EU will become much simpler. Conservatives are alrea...Jump to post
