finish off that bottle of Wild Turkey
Wild Turkey...please. Who's gonna drink that swill when I've got a few quarts of homemade slivovitza under my sink? That way, besides the buzz, I get all the vitamins and minerals from the plums. And, in a pinch, I can run my 1973 Mercedes diesel on the stuff.
If you were a real "thoughtful admirer" of Nikola Tesla, you'd know that. Hmph.
It is not against the law to operate a radio controlled craft in populated areas. AS long as the craft is within line of site of the operators and is being controlled through means of radio communication then no laws were broken by anyone by the police.
The FAA says that model aircraft flights should be kept below 400 feet above ground level (AGL), should be flown a sufficient distance from populated areas and full scale aircraft, and are not for business purposes. I'm pretty sure two out of three of those rules were busted. One for certain.
The Police also violated FAA regulations by approaching within 500 feet of a person, structure or aircraft.
Curiously, 17 of their husbands died in battle after being drafted past the age of 90 . . .
>up and thought 2-digit years would be enough,
When economists actually looked at the *data* for the "Y2K problem," they found that it would have cost, in discounted real dollars, three times as much to prevent the problem as it would have to avoid . . .
doc hawk, economist
My Uncle looked at his draft number, and enlisted (more control over assignment).
He was right.
My grandmother forwarded his induction notice to him in Viet Nam.
He had the cook lay down, poured catchup over his head, and stood with his foot on the cook--and sent the picture back, from Viet Nam, to the draft board.
 Kind of silly to worry about color for a B&W picture . . .
Wednesday, the FAA, which handles all commercial space launch permitting in the United States, issued what's known as a "Record of Decision" that suggests the agency would allow the company to launch 10 Falcon 9 rockets and two Falcon Heavy rockets per year out of the spaceport, through at least 2025."
...seems to be doing everything in their power to push Germany to be a regional power that DOESN'T NEED OR WANT the US.
Is that the greatest idea?
a) most peoples' computers are making so much noise (fans, etc) that the only way you're going to have a chance to hear the difference will be with $1000 totally-closed cup headphones - do a lot of people have them on their computer?
b) otherwise, even if their PC is silent, their speakers are usually craptastic 3" logitechs, *maybe* with a cheapo sub buried in the shag carpet (ie a somewhat sub-optimal listening environment)
c) finally, last time I checked *most* people are listening to relatively crappy lossy mp3s ripped from youtube videos. It really, truly, doesn't matter how lovely a board you're sending crap sound data through: GIGO.
So I guess these boards are still relevant to the microniche of audiophile enthusiasts that have a nearly-silent PC and hardware, floor-scale speakers connected to their system (or 4-digit $ headphones), and who listen to audiophile-caliber audio....meaning nearly nobody.
That might explain why Creative Labs stock ($36.63 in March 2000) is $1.78 today.
