I think, if propelled with enough velocity, these crime-prevention rocks would work very well.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There's something in the interpretation of the reg to prevent that, specifically. The AOPA paraphrasing is as such: . A landowner can't arbitrarily try to prevent aircraft from overflying their land by erecting "spite poles," for example.
Uh. No. at 35+ thousand feet that hole would get much bigger fairly quickly. (Granted, not as quickly as the movies make it out to be). And the packs on your average commercial airliner will most certainly NOT be able to maintain pressurization if someone starts shooting holes in the damn plane.

No, if you reduce the number of regulations and taxes, they'll still provide the same shitty overpriced service, they'll just make more profit off of it. They're not complaining about an unfair advantage, they're complaining about competition.
I think it would take care of itself in a few months. Might be a bit of a bill for replacing the guardrails and cleaning up the car parts for a little while, though.
Yep, good luck convincing everyone that they should live on only what they "need" to survive, because the mud-hut dwellers in third world countries "deserve" to live like 2010-era Americans.
Wait, "You can't do that on television" was CANADIAN?!?!
You would be wrong in that. Many studies have concluded that increasing highway speeds has little to no effect on number of accidents.
Sorry, but there is ABSOLUTELY no way to connect even a small fraction of this country with "reasonable public transportation". The distances are just too large. It works in major urban centers and that's it.
I hope it's like that "stair dismount" game from a few years back. Pick a position, crash the plane, and get points for how injured your passenger is!
You misspelled "days".
They didn't slow down to land
What was the windspeed and direction at the time of landing? What did ATC indicate was the minimum landing speed for wind conditions at the airport? What did the aircraft / company manual indicate what minimum approach speeds were for the conditions provided by ATC?
There's so much wrong with this statement that it makes my head hurt. Who the hell thinks ATC dictates landing speeds? Those are determined by the pilots. If you asked ATC what your approach speed should be, they'd laugh you out of their airspace.
Its true, I wouldn't want my name attatched to the Wings either.
One thing that I genuinely don't get: why does the rest of Canada want to keep Quebec? What's in it for you?
Hydroelectric power, mostly.
It's cute that you think that ANYTHING done by governments these days is driven by the will of a majority of citizens.
