Comment: Bad Plane (Score 2) 184

by Chris L. Mason (#47528675) Attached to: "Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

This plane is an ef'ing joke, at least from my perspective as Canadian ex-military. Does not operate well in cold weather, and has only one engine. If you lose an engine while patrolling the arctic, you go down. This is an overpriced, overcomplicated piece of shit. Our government has produced at least two reports that have stated that this is an inappropriate and overpriced solution for what we need, yet regardless the federal government (across two parties) seems to keep trying to back it, and even now, another report is surfacing suggesting this might change.

Small, stupid suggestion: Screw this boondoggle, and pay Canadian companies to produce a world-class, well-designed and actually useful aircraft to replace the well-performing, but old, CF-18s. And if the US doesn't like it, too bad.

Add to that special helmets? By a country engaged in war-crimes and atrocities? Yeah, that will sell it.

The agreement, not treaty consisted of

Respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignty within its existing borders.
Refrain from the threat or use of force against Ukraine.
Refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine in order to influence its politics.
Seek United Nations Security Council action if nuclear weapons are used against Ukraine.
Refrain from the use of nuclear arms against Ukraine.
Consult with one another if questions arise regarding these commitments.

Now while it can be argued that America broke the first condition by spending billions inside the Ukraine to destabilize the government leading to the resignation of its democratically elected leader, the only country that the USA promised to ensure the Ukrainians safety from was America.

I don't give a shit about "bad publicity" or either of these two idiots -- the gate agent or the passenger.

Next time, guy could just try doing as he's told by those in charge of the situation.

Perhaps once an idiot gate agent plays the "safety threat" card against you for an equally nonsensical reason you might come to develop a slightly different outlook on the situation.

That doesn't help if the people who got on ahead of you have bags like that, and many people do. Bag manufacturers know the exact dimensions of those bins and make bags to match. People have so little faith that they'll find an empty bin at their seat, that often the people in the back who board first use an empty bin about halfway to their seat, perpetuating the problem. I've watched this happen more than once.

Personally, I'd check a lot more stuff if the airline gave me the option to have my checked bags flown separately on a UPS or FedEx flight where locked bags are allowed. As it is, I expect I'd better carry with me anything I want to take that might entice theft, or mail that stuff in cardboard boxes in advance.

I think it has very little to do with the bible, and a lot more to do with who funds their campaigns. This is clearly less about public policy and response to observations of reality and more to do with who has the most to gain out of a lack of action... hint: it's businesses whose prosperity depends on a lack of good public policy.. it's a simple business case, lobbying costs less than having to bear the consequences of good public policy.

Note you are being moderated "interesting", not "insightful". Your statement is a matter of opinion, and demonstrably not backed up by the numbers. Also, you fail to point out that the Coalitions alternative to a Carbon Tax/ETS, of giving away tax payer money to polluters rather than levying them for their emissions is demonstrably a step backwards, and also you are ignoring the fact that the "Carbon Tax" was due to transition to a ETS in 2015.

If this were about his behavior, that'd be one thing, but no: he was allowed to board the plane after removing the tweet. This is purely the SWA personnel not wanting to look bad, and doing an absolutely inexcusable thing in the process.

Food is not cheap. Taking inflation into account, food prices are at an all-time high on a global basis. They're even higher than they were during World War II, when rationing was in place.

The price of food increasing far faster than wages has in fact resulted in more poverty, which has in fact resulted in more obesity is many nations around the world.

The parent post should have said developed countries instead of modern world, because in developed countries food certainly is cheap. In 1900 families spent 43% of their money on food, while in 2003 it was 13%. Food is incredibly cheap by historical standards, about a third of the cost of food 100 years ago. source

Poverty only correlates to obesity in areas where food is abundant. Then the same incapability to delay gratification that causes poverty also causes obesity. One does not cause the other, they have the same root cause.

Their status page promised roll-outs starting in late 2012, but it also has horrifically bad information, even for an ISP ("Verizon will use a IPv6/56 address format, which means this will support 56 LANs.") I've asked about it several times, but no one at any level seems to know what's going on. The routers have been IPv6-enabled since spring of 2013, which got a lot of people excited. There's a rumor that the hold-up has to do with newer set-top boxes and broken IPv6 stacks, but no one knows how believable that is. (I don't buy it. I just think Verizon is refusing to spend the money necessary to implement it.)

T. Boone actually got beat out by CRMWA, which is the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority. They wanted to sell water to Amarillo, and when T. Boone didn't play ball they started buying up all the land around his (considerable) property. Even an armchair hydrogeologist knows that if you pump along the edges of a property, the water moves along the gradient towards the cone of depression. So T. Boone was forced to deal, and he sold his rights to CRMWA. CRMWA/Amarillo wins, and T. Boone has to mutter to himself while taking his nightly bath in gold coins (thinking Richie Rich or Scrooge McDuck here).

He was then informed that the agent felt threatened by that and would ask him to leave the plane if he didn't remove the tweet, he removed it and was allowed to fly.

No rights were violated unless Southwest Airlines recently became government owned.

Also observe that nobody stopped the man in question from tweeting anything, it's just that the airline after reading the tweet decided it didn't want to transport this person. And that is fully legal.

Which is exactly what it does. It informs. Just right now the people being informed don't like what the science shows, so they claim science is not being 'fair'.

The scientific community is under attack by the pubs.

When to argue against solid scientific facts, yes, they are being anti-science, regardless of their degree.

I've never heard anything more wrong the a scientist speaking outside their expertise.

Truth is free, but information costs.
