United States Begins Flying Stealth Bombers Over South Korea 567

skade88 writes "The New York Times is reporting that the United States has started flying B-2 stealth bomber runs over South Korea as a show of force to North Korea. The bombers flew 6,500 miles to bomb a South Korean island with mock explosives. Earlier this month the U.S. Military ran mock B-52 bombing runs over the same South Korean island. The U.S. military says it shows that it can execute precision bombing runs at will with little notice needed. The U.S. also reaffirmed their commitment to protecting its allies in the region. The North Koreans have been making threats to turn South Korea into a sea of fire. North Korea has also made threats claiming they will nuke the United States' mainland."

The show has 350million viewers worldwide making it one of the, if not THE, most watched shows in the world.

If they pretended it ran out of charge so they could visual demonstrate that if you run out of charge you need to get a tow rather than a 5 gallon gas can, that's acceptable. If they said the brakes broke and they didn't, that's unacceptable.

Well 3 years ago I wanted to buy a 24" monitor, all were 1920x1200. I ended up settling for a 22" at 1680x1050 due to price. Yesterday I went to the store and low and behold, the highest resolution I could find from 23"-28" was 1920x1080. So I bought a 27" LG that looked decent but when I got it home and hopped on slashdot the text looked like shit. 1920x1080 is not good enough for a 27" display to be used with a PC. So I took it back and got the Asus 25.5" I am using right now. I didn't notice it the first time but it is one of the few monitors left that are over 1080p. 1920x1200 is decent enough at 25". The only other monitors over 1080p that I have seen are 30" @ 2560x1600. Unfortunately they start around $800 more than this Asus. We have definitely gone backwards.

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
