Barbecuing is optional. What counts is drinking beer and playing with explosives.
1990? I was living off base in the Air Force in 1964, and before that I lived in base housing that was completely open on public streets.
Indeed. You can measure the performance degradation in a sailplane caused by bug impacts on the leading edges.
When it changes color, aren't you getting the information a bit late?
One of them once told me "It may be shit to you, but it's bread and butter to me."
Naturally. It's much too dangerous to jump through a fire with your clothes on.

Surprisingly, by shining a laser into it, thanks to the Doppler effect. It's how the Bose-Einstein Condensate was demonstrated at the U of Colorado in 1995, for a Nobel.
The coolant on the nuke power plant is NOT likely to be water
It certainly isn't, but it transfers its heat to distilled water that ultimately serves as the working fluid in the propulsion engines. It also heats the distillation plant that provides that distilled water for the engines and all the other water users aboard.
The carriers are all nuclear which means they boil sea water to turn steam turbines.
No. Only a very modest amount of seawater gets boiled in a distillation plant heated by the reactor; the resulting freshwater goes into the propulsion engines, which are closed Rankine cycles. Water goes round and round from boiler to turbines, to a seawater-cooled condenser that turns it back into liquid, to the boiler again. Lather, rinse, repeat. If you tried to use seawater in the propulsion plant, it would fill up with salt in a matter of hours. The distillation plant only supplies enough water to the engines to replenish what leaks out; the rest of its output goes to the catapult system.
The EM system means you have high voltage lines running under the decks
Ever been in the same space with a battle-damaged steam line?
such big industrial machines are hydraulic in most cases. They rely on pressure
Steam machines rely on pressure times volume, which is an order of magnitude increase in control problems.
Sounds more like a BODY transplant to me...
Bobby Fischer was on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1972.
Would it get your attention if you smelled heating gas near your stove?
Smelling that, like smelling gas near a car, means something is wrong...and possibly about to get wronger.
This. Some people microwave and some people cook.
If it didn't contain explosives, they couldn't detonate it. They blew it up by detonating something else next to it.
Don't let the door...
