Challenger? IIRC the chevron is some kind of Anglophone military Company designation, A, B, C, D depending on orientation. Perhaps one of the folks on this board who has actually served in an armored unit can enlighten us further.

The shadows on the pilot's O2 hose follow the same line as the stadium. Maybe only the following jets were shopped in or the A/c were never all in the same original source pic to begin with.

Blue Angels love flying low.  I'm sure that I've told the tale about when the Blue Angels did an airshow here and the ground crew was seen pulling branches off the landing gear of a BA F-18 after a practice run.

Brant was once licensed for a T72 without ever having actually driven it.

But no, you don't jump & fire at the same time.  In fact, you don't jump if you can help it - it's hell on the torsion bars and feels like shit inside.

I read the book Tank Men and it recalled a demo of one of the first production tanks (Britain) in front of King George. Part of the demo showed the tank climbing a small hill and trench behind the hill. The tank crawled up the hill with a large part sticking up past the ground until it's center of gravity went over and the front of the tank swung down and hit with some force. The King came over to enthusiasticvly congradulate the first 3 tank crew (out of 12) that emerged from the tank, not knowing that the remainder were unconcious or otherwise injured in the tank and unable to get out.

great read that book. Gave me a new understanding of what tankers went through psycologically during battle

Why is the brown forward pointing wing tip not on the other wing?

First Contact was okay except for the total retconning of Zephram Cochrane. Final Frontier was by far the suckiest Trek movie. I almost walked out after the campfire scene and I almost vomitted after the Uhura dance on the sand dune. It took me a long time to forgive Shat that piece of sh!t. However, it did amuse me when Kirk argued with God. The two biggest egos in the universe (other than Star) having it out- classic!

I actually think First Contact and Voyage Home (IV) are the best ones. Undiscovered Country and WOK would be 4 and 3, respectively.

First Contact will always be my favorite, with The Voyage Home (VI) and Wrath of Khan (II) rounding out my top three.  Those three films are the ones I consider to be truly good. 

I found The Search for Spock (III) and The Voyage Home (IV) to both be fairly decent; they're #4 & 5 on my list, respectively.  (Heck, the former is worth watching just for the scene(s) where Kirk & crew conspire to steal the Enterprise; the scene where Sarek mind-melds with Kirk is pretty moving as well.) 

Generations and Insurrection are decidedly "meh". 





you liked the whale movie!?

(http://www.mst3kjournal.com/misc/kirkfacepalm.png)

Hey I liked it too!  Environmental pontificating aside (which was annoying, yes), it was the funniest film out of the lot. 





Final Frontier was by far the suckiest Trek movie.

Then clearly you have not seen either the first or last movie (The Motion Picture and Nemesis). 

At least The Final Frontier has some elements of "so bad it's good", making it a guilty pleasure to watch.  In contrast, TMP and Nemesis are simply terrible, and have no redeeming value whatsoever.

Sir, not in front of the Klingons.

Sure did! It was full of great scenes like Checkov looking for the 'Nuclear Wessels' and Scotty trying to talk to the 1980's era computer using the mouse for a microphone. Or the scene where they scare off the whalers by decloaking right over their boat or classic lines like "Are you from space?" No, I'm from Iowa. I work in space." And many more...

Good stuff :)

I've seen them all. Nemesis was terrible, but it didn't have Spock singing 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' and it didn't have a fat Kirk free climbing El Capitan.  :o

TMP needed to be heavily edited and run about an hour shorter, but it did have elements of serious sci-fi to it. I liked Kirk's obsession with getting the Enterprise back and his rivalry with Decker (which tied in nicely to the original series episode "Doomsday Machine" with Commodore Decker).

^$10 says the Beetle can withstand a blast from that vulcan gun!

Sheesh. That brings back memories.

Back in college we had a distinctly un-politically correct Cinco de Mayo party. The fraternity bought a non-functioning bug for $300, which the junkyard guy assured us, he'd gladly buy back the next day. We were quite explicit that our intention was to beat on it in an increasingly drunken fury with everything we could get.

He was happy.

Well, we spray painted it in fiesta-ish colors, took baseball bats to it, and jumped up and down on every part of it, including rolling it over.

When he arrived the next day to tow it off he couldn't come to grips with how badly it had been handled. However, true to his word, he bought it back.

It was awesome.

That's cool. The site indicates that the ambulance mockup was originally used in building a Puma-based Hind replica. IIRC, that setup was what was used in the original Red Dawn flick, and possibly a Rambo movie.

Nowadays you can rent a real Hind. Not that any blockbuster movie studio would- they are too enamored of CGI aircraft that can defy gravity and aerodynamics if either the plot or director's whim requires it.

He's wearing a Desert Rats patch. In WW2 the Gurkhas had a reputation for sneaking into enemy camps at night and silently slitting the throats of several sleeping soldiers, leaving the others alive to have their dead comrades be the first thing they see after waking.

No, he picked up an Mi-28 to turn over to SOCOM.  He's also done a bunch w/ Mi-8s and Mi-17s, but those are pretty common and much less worthy of bragging about.

Either way, if you *really* want a Hind, I know who to talk to.

Their current focus is a big overseas Mi-17 contract, but they've done a bunch of other stuff

Hey, I've been meaning to ask for a while now but where do each of you Canadians live at the present time? IIRC 40Cent lives near Halifax and Migsie somewhere near there as well but I don't really know about the rest of you. If you mentioned it I must have missed it. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that SDR lives on the West coast, maybe around Vancouver?

I'm in Leduc, about 20 minutes south of Edmonton, in Alberta.

I'm in Lethbridge which is quite nice. There is good mosquito control so you can go out anytime unmolested. The rest of Alberta seems to be full of tiger mosquitoes which are immune to DEET. They ignore it. The city is big enough to have all the amenities while small enough to get anywhere in 15 minutes. Property prices are still low for a city of 100k.

It's both strange and ironic that your cynicism gives me a spark of hope. 

That being said, though, I  still can't find it in me to be as optimistic as you.  I'd still bet they find *something* approximating an "original" screenplay, and that it runs counter to (and/or ignores entirely) the continuity created by the books.  Odds are the Thrawn trilogy gets tossed aside like so much, well, refuse. 

(Sorry, I find myself in a bit of a black mood today...)

I'd squeal like Gusington if they went with the Thrawn storyline. But here's the thing - if they do, there's no guarantee they won't fudge it up like a Willy Wonka proctology exam. As Star said, Hollywood has pretty much gone tits up when it comes to creating original stories, and there's a really good reason for that. Hollywood has long left the patterns of the 90s where pitch meetings sold movies - now they're more about marketing movies to an international audience than 'Murica. Nothing wrong with that, but you can see where it affects stories (such as when the Red Dawn remake was changed from China to North Korea, because God forbid the Chinese market gets put off by that - sorry, that still pisses me off and makes me see red). I can recommend some good books on the subject of Hollywood's current decline if you're interested. The entire dynamic fascinates me.

But, erm, yeah, Star Wars VII. With all that said, they're going to be less interested in originality and more in what will squeeze dollars out of China, India, and other large markets. Personally I have no hope that this will be a good movie, not after Lucas's terrible I, II, and III, which NEVER GOT BETTER but still made HUGE bank. Sigh.

Design elements humble and spare make a powerful impression at St. Henry’s Ecumenical Art Chapel in Turku, Finland. Conceived by the Helsinki firm Sanaksenaho Architects, the structure consists of a single slender volume with curved walls that converge dramatically overhead in a steep pitch. (Its shape was inspired by the Christian fish symbol.) Pine planks form virtually every surface of the arklike interior, whose ribbed sides accentuate the sense of perspective that draws one’s gaze toward the front of the church. There, vertical expanses of glass bathe the unadorned altar in sunlight, providing a luminous focal point for worship.

Yeah. It wastes a lot of material while presenting a huge wind sail. A catenary is the optimum figure for a self supporting roof.

simplicity of design is hardly wasteful but it does cost more to pull off because of the engineering.

The point of the arch is a reminder of Gothic imagery. God would actually prefer the catenary. The tech was not known back in Gothic times. It is stronger, uses less material, most importantly will cost less to heat, will resist wind better, will keep the airy, to the heavens, feel.

What's so great about Cialis if it makes you want to take a bath outside in separate bathtubs? And what about all the back injuries resulting from over exertion? Not everyone is in shape enough to drag their claw-foot bathtub outside at a moment's notice...

What's great about Cialis is it gives you an hours-long woodrow, plus bonus side effects like heart damage, kidney stones, COPD, nausea, diarrhea, headaches, blood clots, fever blisters, swamp armpit, pinkeye, tachycardia, myocardial infarction, high blood pressure, depression, thoughts of suicide, Lou Gehrig's disease, dumpster breath, dog warts, Hogwarts, athlete's foot, diabetes, electrolyte depletion, monkey shines, and even more reasons for visiting the doctor to get prescriptions to silly drugs with fifteen thousand negative side effects.

All the socks and sandles wearers I see in the Keys are northern US citizens.

And since when is $CDN worth more than $US. Right now it's running at about $1.00CDN = $0.92 US. Yer the one that should tip us.

Actually, now that I think of it, amstel is actually better than 99% of the 'light' beers out there. Sam Adams Light is pretty good though, if slightly citrusy.

The last movie I saw Sean Bean in was, The Island.  Ewan McGregor, Scarlett Johansson and him.  Bean was the bad guy.

Bean was the bad guy.

Patriot Games
The Island
National Treasure

Ronin
Far North
Percy Jackson flicks
Goldeneye

hell, it's harder to find movies where Sean Bean is the good guy (outside of the Sharpe's series)

I dunno, man.  I'm not much of a follower in many things.  And I am legendarily bad about not having seen shows, movies, etc. that are considered seminal and must watch.  As an example, here is a quick list of programs I have never seen:

Jurassic Park
Forrest Gump
The Wire
Lost
Modern Family
Almost any John Wayne movie
Caddyshack
Pretty much none of the 'classic' war movies


And that's just to name a few.  And we'll not get started on the movies I have seen that I thought were just plain terrible (I'm looking at you Blade Runner).

Of all those I'd only suggest you're missing out on a few John Wayne movies. I've only seen about two thirds of that list.

But I'd recommend Dead Poets'.

I did see Dead Poet's.  In the theater, no less.  I liked it when I saw it.  And while I do not care a whit for poetry, I heartily agree that language is made up just to woo women.  It's what I like most about being able to speak.

I finally watched 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' for the first time about a month or so ago. I was never a big western-theme fan...not that I hate them, they just don't appeal to me in general. Josey Wales was pretty good so I'd make an exception for Eastwood and might watch a few others of his (already saw Unforgiven, though it's been a while).

Not looking for a certain response.  Would actually prefer to avoid a huge deal about it.  I know it's not a popular stance around here.  And it's not just Murray, I dislike pretty much all of the early SNL cast.  The only ones I like are Jane Curtin and Dan Aykroyd.

Awesome!  A little odd to see Shatner with the TNG cast, but he doesn't look entirely displeased to be there. 


You can see just a little bit of Dorn's face on the right side of the photo, wearing the glasses.

It funny, but when I read shit like that the little streak of ODD I have in me wants to put a toe over the line because I want to know, "What are they hiding?"

Having said that, I appreciate the sign and the intention behind it on its own merits.

I saw this the other day and it made me bawl, because I am man enough to admit it:

(http://ubertoolcomic.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/ubertool972.jpg)

We had a deal with our vet for our previous dog.  The dog had grown to be afraid of the vet towards the end of her life.  The deal with the vet was to have her put down at home - as long as we could schedule for a slow time for the vet.  Dog had a stroke, would walk in a circle hitting its head against the wall.  Nothing could make the dog's tail wag - and Snort wagged more and harder than every dog I've had before or since.  It was just time.  Snort died at home.

Yeah it is.

We have a wonderful Bagel (part Beagle, part Bassett) that we got from a rescue org a few years ago. He was about 4 at that time. He's about 8 now and still doing well but dammit, it's going to kill me when it comes time to take care of him.

I had to do that once with a cocker spaniel my wife had since a puppy. He was doing the same thing you describe, airboy. That was more than 10 years ago and I still feel like crap because I just could not be there when they did it. That's why I bawled when I saw that comic because it really cuts deep and I still feel tremendously guilty for not being strong enough.

In the case of Amber Vinson, the Dallas nurse who flew commercially as she was becoming ill with Ebola, one health official said "somebody dropped the ball."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn't 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn't officially fall into the group of "high risk" and was allowed to fly.

Oh man, I can't believe I never uploaded these!

Ok, about 6 months ago I'm upstairs reading and all of a sudden I hear this scream...like the worst, scariest scream you ever heard. 

About a half hour later I go downstairs to see what the fuss is all about.  There was a beach towel that was bunched up in a laundry basket in our laundry room for about a week or so.  My wife goes to do a load of towels and throws the beach towel in with them.  She's transferring them from the washer to the drier when that thing falls out.  She promptly screams her head off in surprise and fear.

Fortunately it didn't bite her when she grabbed the beach towel out of the basket, and then it died in the washer or else...ewwwwww!

I have seen a couple of super scary centipedes out here.  They are no joke.

In my defense re Starbuck -- that was like 5 years ago at least since I watched the series, and her being a captain was never as much of a plot point than some other things. (Like the show's scorewriter playing her angelic father flirting with her on the piano... ;) ) Still, geeky-fu props for the recall!

I think you're all missing the point. The character and quality of the writing, dialogue, and acting are what made it great, not the sci-fi setting mixed with Western themes. That's merely a backdrop.

It's lie watching B5 and saying you didn't care for it because you don't like CGI space stations.

Not necessarily, as a show with a modicum of intelligence and infused with rural common-sense and southern social grace', it has to go head to head against the virtuoso icons of American culture like Dancing with the Stars and The Bachelor

The geek is strong here :)

I'll join along with getting poo-poo'ed by Windy. 

I also never watched Firefly much, probably was busy watching other stuff at the time.  I did watch Serenity with a friend (without having watched much of the tv series), and I didn't get it much - although I loved most of the cast (I do follow Nathan Filion regularly on Castle, and nice to see Baccarin continued a good career track afterwards). That being said, I'll probably download it or check it out on tv reruns when I get some time.

Becoming CAG of Pegasus was actually a big plot point.  ;)

For as long as the Pegasus continued in the fleet. ;) Two eps? And a small part of a movie?

Her commission must have lasted longer than that, of course, but since it was connected to a plot element quickly written out (as it had to be), I simply didn't recall it.

I'll take some heat for y'all. 

I tried watching Firefly and didn't like it.  It was more like a post US Civil War western than sci-fi.  Turned me off.

That being said, I loved Serenity and have watched it many times.

My mind does not understand how to reconcile those two things...  :o

It's lie watching B5 and saying you didn't care for it because you don't like CGI space stations.

To be fair, depending on how much I didn't like CGI space stations, I wouldn't have gotten much out of B5 or DS9. (For example, I can't stand medical dramas, and so never got much out of House, even though I can recognize and respect its quality.)

I don't think DS9 was CGI :P

And one didn't really watch House for the medical drama. You watched it to see Hugh Laurie chew scenery.

For gallows humor though, wish I could channel an engineer, Larry Tuohey.  He had the driest sense of humor.
One time he was going down a path and thinking the area was clear, told a joke about twenty Greeks crossing a stream, but only one got his equipment wet.
At that moment, a mortar round passed overhead and exploded twenty yards away.
Everyone else ducked.  Larry just clucked his tongue, "Critics.  Always the critics."

Yes.  However it orbits the Earth and not vise versa, hence it's a satellite.   Just as Charon looks like a planet, but orbits Pluto.

Quote
Another expert, Gareth Williams, associate director of the IAU's Minor Planet Center, said that Pluto is not a planet, citing the official definition, which states that a planet is a celestial body that:

• Is in orbit around the sun.

• Is round or nearly round.

• Has "cleared the neighborhood" around its orbit, meaning it is not surrounded by objects of similar size and characteristics.

Williams said Pluto failed on that third qualification, since it had several other "dwarf planets" near it and also overlaps Neptune's orbit at times.

Not

A

Planet.

Williams sounds like a hate filled ass to me and he has now caused me to reconsider whether or not Neptune is a planet since it's always allowing pesky space objects like Pluto, Haley's Comet, and countless other objects to cross it's orbital space with impunity. 
Title: Re: Pictures of Greatness!
Post by: JasonPratt on July 14, 2015, 08:36:15 AM
Crossing Neptune's plane shouldn't have anything to do with it. Especially since Pluto (and Charon) orbit at a quite oblique angle anyway, clearly independent from Neptune's influence.

However, those other things aren't similar in size and characteristics to Neptune; so they don't get to count against Neptune being a planet.

On the other hand, the fact that after all this time Neptune hasn't cleared out Pluto argues in favor of Pluto being a planet!

Besides, "dwarf planets" are still planets, yo.

And more will probably be added as we discover them.

Quick poking around shows that this pattern is not public and creator has no plans to make it so.... too busy making money off of finished products..
There is another face hugger knit pattern out there but it's pretty lame when compared to this one.

IIRC there is another instance of that during the ACW. Fredericksburg maybe?

It is from this that I came up with a concept with the wholly clumsy name of Large Wars Improbability Theory.

Basically if a conflict is large enough, eventually something highly improbably is going to happen. Like two bullets meeting in midair. Or a bailed out fighter pilot killing the Japanese pilot who shot him down with his pistol.

Serenity...isn't that that sci-fi show with the western feel that about six people watched and then got cancelled?  And those same six people have looked down their noses at everyone who turned theirs up at it in the first place?  How's the view from space, fellas? :P

It really takes a lot to get me to watch something I have no interest in.  I appreciate the opinions of people I trust to turn me on to new stuff, but, I just don't care enough about space shows.  As a matter of fact, the only two space shows I ever watched were the original Battlestar Galactica and episodes IV, V and VI of Star wars.

Shouldnt Fuck Off be lower case

Boom drops mike
http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/capital.asp

In this case, it is a proper noun, as it is the title of an award. So, this is correct usage.

Actually, the word "award" should be capitalized.

How is Fuck Off a formal award.  Its but a gentle hint and also a verb, noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, or interjection with the ability to be all of the above in a same sentence.

But nowhere on that bastion of truth and rational thought we call the internet is there a listing for a real Fuck Off award

Take spiked mike wraps it together with duck tape solders connections together, re calibrates it, lovingly replaces dented diaphragm, learns electrical engineering degree in order to follow circuit diagram, repairs mike  does sound check,  then goes
Boom AND SPIKES mike again (also ironically ignores all proper punctuation and capitalization rules 8))

How is Fuck Off a formal award. 

It isn't a formal award. It's a proper noun, the name of a specific award.

To continue to use the example you cited above, you capitalize the names of specific awards, as opposed to general.

So Staggerwing presented me his Fuck You ( <- N.B. Capitalized) award.

Or we could simply say he presented me an award for obnoxiousness.

It isn't the formality, or reality, of the award. It's the fact that his imaginary award has a name, Fuck Off, and as such is capitalized.

Do you still need this mic?

This is all a distraction from MD having called Firefly/Serenity crappy, and then asking how he could be against a show he has never seen.

To which he will no doubt say that it must be a crappy show because Fox canceled it after broadcasting it in a random order (leaving out two eps and only saving the two introductory eps for the final two) on a completely insane schedule over one season.

"Patron Saint of All News" more like.  ::)

I remember watching some film of Goebbels at a Nazi rally a year or two ago -- pretty sure it's archived in "The World At War" somewhere -- and I vividly remember two things.

First, he addressed the audience rather like he was schlager fighting. Not at all sure where he got that, or if it was coincidental, but as a fencer it caught my eye. (Schlager, no umlauts on this keyboard so imagine there's one on the 'a', is a type of German sabre fencing where opponents each stand in a narrow circle within reach of each other's blades, and with various amounts of not-much-protection. Footwork is strictly prohibited, and body dodging is frowned on as cowardly. Defense is purely dependent on bladework; no stabs allowed, but the goal is to be the first to get a light cut on the other guy. I used the principles slightly modified with more protection of course, as a sabre training tool when teaching.) Not a lot of 'swordarm' work, but a lot of 'sword hand' work, and his posture though a bit sloppily dangerous (too much chest turned toward his 'target') was pretty decent. I've never seen anyone else make a speech like that, and I've made a mental note NOT TO EVER TRY DOING THAT if I ever get into the habit of public speaking just in case someone makes a spurious comparison.  ::) :buck2:

Second, he was literally, and I mean literally, telling the audience exactly why propaganda was evil (so that they should beware of it), and also that the Nazis were certain to defeat their foes because they made a skill out of being the best propagandists -- to which the crowd was cheering lustily along. You go, super-evil propaganda guy, woo-hoo!!

I thought, am I watching the ultimate audience trolling here??

Yeah, a less permanent method of fencing was in use by some German fraternities back when I was going to school there. I didn't join one, but I had a buddy who did.

It's my understanding that the more modern version (at least to his eyes) didn't hold so much technique as it was a simple slugfest, with the loser the one whose arm gave out first.

Also my understanding that these "Duels" are where the stereotypical one-eyed Prussian officer came from, since the result thereof was not just a woman-swooning facial scar...or perhaps the more fortuitous monocle....

LB, reading around a bit after remembering that, I got the impression Goebbels wasn't using schlager form (directly) so much as various choices he made to hold himself upright after a childhood of debilitating illnesses. Some of that could have still been based on having watched schlag duels, but after seeing other photos of his speaking style I'm now leaning toward that film being more of an accidental resemblance.

Conclusion: I can still use schlager form for public speaking one day.  O0

Could be worse. The sponsor/veteran/coach of our fencing team in college liked to show off this terrifying scar he got on his leg from a sabre. Then after everyone was suitably impressed, he'd explain how he got it: screwing around with a broken weapon while drunk one night in college, he and a buddy decided to slash it across the pavement of the road while sitting on the curb in order to see it shoot sparks. One of the slashes missed.  :D

Moral of the story: alcohol and/or screwing around doesn't mix with sharp weapons. Also, the weapons may be dull but they break sharp.

The three fencing injuries I know about personally come from sabres, probably because they tend to lack colored tape on the end to signal when that end has gone suddenly missing!  >:D (Plus being drunk for the Grand Old Fencer.) Also they're the thinnest of the three Olympic weapons, and the only one of the three where cuts are both legal and encouraged, so they shatter the easiest and get into the most snapping situations. (The other two weapons can snap from stabbing too hard, but that's true of sabres, too: thrusts count for points.)

Mine was one of those: the thick fighting glove on my weapon hand had gotten a little small over time, as had my jacket sleeve from washing it, and the sleeve had come out of my glove during an exchange without me noticing it. My opponent was trying a stab for my chest below my main arm, having psyched me into raising my arm a little too high to parry it properly (and well done on that strategy, btw), so I did the only thing I could and pushed down with my arm to force a secondary cut along my forearm. (In sabre rules, when a thrust turns into a cut, the cut counts as a second attack even if it lands first so the defender has a brief chance to score a point by counter-attack even if it lands second. There are training-to-hit-without-being-hit rationales for this. Arms are considered on-target for sabre.)

Consequently, he shot that sabre blade right into the gap of my jacket, and even though the blade wasn't snapped there are still edges to it, so it can be like getting a paper cut with metal. Zippp! -- about a 3 inch cut on my forearm. Not deep enough for stiches, but it left scar tissue for years.

The other scar I know about could have easily killed someone: a sabre had snapped during someone's parry, and no one noticed until the defender parried another thrust a few seconds later down onto his leading (in this case his right) leg, out thrust from a previous lunge. A good idea normally, since legs are off-target in sabre and also (unlike in foil) a hit off target doesn't stop the action. (Or it didn't back then; sabre rules tend to be changed more often than for other weapons.) This time, not such a good idea: the sharp tip went straight through the kevlar weave knickers he was wearing, zip zip, in and out, halfway through his leg. Only needed one stitch, but barely missed the artery.

This is why I used to tell students that while the jackets and plastrons (underlying half-jackets, required legally once someone died from a foil strike that someone calculated might have been prevented with more padding there) and knickers are all one hundred percent necessary, and might possibly save their lives, don't rely on them. If a blade breaks sharp, it's going in and out through that stuff regardless; only the mask will really save you (which is why the only ironclad rule for sparring is never without a mask). Then I would punch a broken epée entirely through a box I brought for that purpose. And watched their faces when they jumped.

Striking terror. Best part of the job.  >:D

Quote
Ross enlisted in the United States Air Force at 18 years old and served as a medical records technician. He eventually rose to the rank of master sergeant and served as the first sergeant of the U.S. Air Force Clinic at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska, where he first saw the snow and mountains that later became recurring themes in his artwork. He developed his quick-painting technique to create art for sale during brief daily work breaks. Having held military positions that required him to be, in his own words, "mean" and "tough", "the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work", Ross decided that if he ever left the military, he would never scream again.

Theoretically, if a person were really stoned or tripping and listening to a great story being told the person might experience a kind of 'frisson' (a pleasant tingling running down or up the back of one's scalp, like the hairs were raising up, but not scary at all) at certain points of the story.

Now take away the stoned/tripping part...

Autonomous sensory meridian response - I didn't even know it had a name until I clicked on Bob and saw he was used as a trigger

Basically it's a very pleasant tingling that starts at the top of your head and spreads out from there, not a sexual thing, just relaxing and hypnotic I suppose - for some it's noise and for some it's action that triggers it - like I said hard to explain - I get it watching artists, even watching junior do her colouring in

We have a black one. His name is Duffy.

WTF you say?

Well, at first I didn't want him, he was a bit of a rescue dog. Had all sorts of issues.

I first called him "Dumb-Fu**er" and then that evolved to Duffer and finally to Duffy.

Now I like him a lot... and he swims like a champion.

My male breeders were black pugs. Dillenger, then his son, Tyson. They loved the water and swam with us in the pool constantly. They'd get in your drinks too when you weren't looking. And Tyson would always steal my watch if I left it at poolside. The girls were very sweet though.

I've not visited, but I did a lot of research on the site when I was considering it as a setting for my novel(s). There is a plaque/monument at ground zero, so yeah, I believe you can walk right up there. I want to say it's not open all the time, though, and since it's in the middle of nowhere you'd best check ahead of time just to be sure before heading all the way out there.

Has anyone visited the site? I wonder if you can get close enough to ground zero to see where the sand was turned to glass.

I visited a few years ago when I was stationed a few hours away at Ft. Bliss. It's on a restricted part of White Sands Missile Range if my memory serves (the entire desert valley from El Paso to Albequerque is one big stretch of military reservation) and they only open it to the public two days out of the year. You can walk right into the 'crater,' just a shallow depressed bowl about a hundred yards across, and drag your feet through the green trinitite glass that's there. The legs of the tower that elevated the bomb above the ground for the test are still sticking out of the sand in the middle of the crater, since the tower itself was vaporized. You can also go see the ranch house a few miles away where they assembled the bomb. It's just a dusty Adobe structure, no running water or electricity. Amazing to see how primitive the conditions were under which they were working.

 There's a framed letter on the wall of the house from Albert Einstein to Franklin Roosevelt from the '30s. Einstein used it to warn the president about the possibility of creating such a weapon, and speculated that a ship could carry the bomb into a harbor and explode it. What struck me was that at that time Einstein could imagine the technology for an atomic bomb, but not for an aircraft large enough to carry it!

Something else I hadn't realized until I visited there was that the scientists there only bothered to test the implosion design bomb. They already new the simpler gun design would work without testing it, and had already shipped the components for both bombs to the pacific when the Trinity test occurred.

These guys should have their own thread.
In Field Marshal Slim's book on Burma, he told the story of the Japanese attacks on Imphal-Kohima.
At one point, it was necessary to reinforce a drive in the jungle.  There was no landing field so the troops would have to dropped in.  The only troops available was a battalion of gurkhas. 
The situation was explained to the troops.  This unit had never done a jump before and the men discussed this surprise order.
An old subadar came to Slim and asked, "At what height will we get out of the planes."
"Two hundred feet."
"The men would prefer jumping out at one hundred."
"But that wouldn't allow time for the parachutes to open."
"Oh.  We get parachutes then?"

Noticed much the same when I moved furniture in my student days.  Working class guys were usually right there to grab an end.  The monied types would, at best, ignore you.  Usually they'd just hover and bitch about the possibility of us scratching the paint, the hardwood, or whatever.  Even worse was the behaviour of some when I did volunteer firefighting during forest fires a few years ago.

Han Solo, Darth Vader (body, not voice), Chewbacca.

Oh yeah, he was pissed. I could have sworn he didn't find out until premiere night but I'll be damned if I can't find a reference to it. Regardless it was kind of a dick move on Lucas' part. I think they've washed their hands of him, but fans have been calling for him to get some kind of nod in the newer Star Wars movies...though Prowse is now into his 80s and in a wheelchair, so I don't know how they'd do that.

They originally chose him because he was a 6'6" bodybuilder, but his accent was indeed a major issue.

The trick to Space Invaders is to focus your eyes on the shooter and use your peripheral vision to target the descending space ships. I played it on my old Intellivision until I finally scored one million points and then quit. Of course it took me 5 years for my sight to return to normal but... it was worth it.  :bd:

Yeah watched it last night. They made lots of jokes about the rules being convoluted but I don't think they used actual rules references.
For example they did a weather roll which took 2 rolls on 2 different charts.
And they never brought up the Italian pasta water rule....
Nice to see a wargame get some air time though.

I *loved* Calvin and Hobbes.  There is a lot of wisdom in those strips.

I used to tease my daughters that I still had the receipt for when I bought them at Target, and if they didn't behave, I would return them and get my money back.  I didn't start doing this until they were old enough to understand that I was joking.  I used to also tease them that instead of going to the dentist, I could take care of their teeth with my Black and Decker drill, and we could split the money I saved from not going to the expensive dentist.

I was at that Farewell Party for George. It was a great party.

George himself had the best line of the night, drunk on his ass he told everybody, "I cannot tell a lie. You're all ugly".   :2funny:

Remember that iconic Spider-Man scene when Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker is coming to grips with his new powers and he catches love interest Mary-Jane Watson mid-fall in the middle of the cafeteria?

Using his webslinger, he also manages to catch her tray along with the sandwich, apple, carton of juice, and dessert that were precariously balanced on top.

It was impressive in 2002 and it’s still impressive now but we’ve just discovered that star of the film Tobey actually managed that slight of hand all by himself and with no CGI trickery – and in only 156 takes.

It was few years ago now. We did a WoW Guildmeet for his 30th Birthday at an activity centre in the North Yorkshire moors. As a surprise, we had hired this guy who is a member of the War of the Roses reenactment society and does a demo of fighting with a long sword. That armour is an accurate copy of the real thing and was bloody heavy, as is the sword. All that gear is worth several £k.

Was a great weekend - there was about 15 off with folk travelling from different parts of the the UK and a couple came over from Holland.

This is us and some messing about with practice swords in a heavy downpour!

The 'eyes' are a not very uncommon cloud phenomena called 'fallstreak holes'..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallstreak_hole

A fallstreak hole is a large gap, usually circular or elliptical, that can appear in cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds.

Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation. When ice crystals do form, a domino effect is set off due to the Bergeron process, causing the water droplets around the crystals to evaporate: this leaves a large, often circular, hole in the cloud.

It is thought that the introduction of large numbers of tiny ice crystals into the cloud layer sets off this domino effect of fusion which creates the hole. The ice crystals can be formed by passing aircraft, which often have a large reduction in pressure behind the wing- or propeller-tips.


As they are mostly formed by aircraft we know them as 'pilot holes'.
