The Goose never flew again because the war was over and the government had stopped paying for it. Hughes made the one flight only to prove he had actually built a working airplane and not defrauded the taxpayers with a phony project.
The Hercules, aka Spruce Goose, is not amphibious: it's a seaplane, period.
This is an amphibian: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wi...
A misspelling of bus duct. You should be able to take it from here.
OK, describe me a scenario where you "do what has to be done" while concealing your identity and not getting any blowback.
Bad idea, unless you're in a very isolated location. The sound of a breaking window has a habit of bringing people out of the woodwork, and if you're running away, it's not gonna look very good. Might make more sense to:
1. Call 911 and announce what you're about to do.
2. Announce it to your surroundings at the top of your lungs.
3. Do it.
4. Remain at the scene.
it's all gonna come down to "the way I did it was better"
You could very well be a skier...
Air traffic routes are like highways: you pick the one that suits your flight, and get clearance to fly it. Just the fact that the last few flights took another one means nothing.
Yeah, rumor has it there are a lot of Muslims in Malaysia.
I'm a nerd and it's interesting to me. In fact I find several other things interesting that don't run Linux.
Well, y'know, if the cops can't slow a car down by pushing a button, there are always spike strips...
Exactly like the slimeball "sales manager" at a car dealership who tries to sell you the extended warranty and other overpriced crap after you've agreed to a price. He demands that you justify your refusal, because he knows that if he can get you on the defensive, he can bully you into submission.
I once tore up a negotiated deal in front of one of those. That wouldn't work in this case, because this customer was already cancelling service, but it might be fun to say "Why I'm cancelling is none of your damned business. I will pay no more bills. Remember when your robot told me this call would be recorded?"

Want the car analogy? OK, buy a new set of mag wheels from a teenager for $50 and see if you get to keep them.
Gone are the days, when pursuit of happiness was understood as a natural right granted to each human being not by their government, but by the Creator.
Yes, very long gone. They died when we gave up on hunter-gathering, settled into fixed dwellings, and the first genius figured out that the soup would taste better if the privy were downstream.
It does, huh? You don't mind the thousands-pounds piloted aircraft flying above your all day, you don't mind the trucks driving around all day (delivering the same stuff), it is the light drones, that keep you awake at night?
The airplanes flying overhead don't land in my neighborhood.
The UPS trucks park in my neighborhood according to well-tested and well-enforced procedures, just as I do.
A drone big enough to deliver, say, a laptop on my driveway is big enough to kill my dog or the neighbor's kid. Until I know that little detail has been taken care of, you're damn right I have the right to impose such a requirement. Whine about the freedom of the open range all you like; we've come too far to go back to writing our rules in blood.
