I've talked to an accountant about this and we're both convinced this was an RCMP sting. They announced there was a vulnerability on their website about six hours before they patched it. That's either totally stupid and insane, or it was a police sting and they were just waiting to see who would be stupid enough to try and break in through the open door. Please have a seat.
To sum up - when you "correct" somebody it's best to consider which parts of your correction are based on your own gut feelings and which are more easily communicated. I'm intrigued by your explosion powered engine idea but suspect it's the same drivel dreamed up by people without a grasp on the topic that are missing a major flaw - if not please feel free to tell us exactly why they will "replace scramjets" - which as you should know are only there to replace rockets because they can save the weight of an oxidiser (so your explosive powered system sounds a bit like a step backwards).
So it all comes down to physical contraints instead of yelling OMG flying car! Please forgive us for not being instant fanboys until we know something about what is going to distinguish this thing from reverse peltier effect devices we already know about. The thing has got to be able to add more performance than it reduces by weight for it to be worth it.
such as rapidly changing design specifications in a mass production line
That's always available and at a cheaper cost when you actually own the mass production line. Of course you need some sort of volume to justify production yourself instead of paying someone else to do it and you need to employ engineers for longer than it takes for the first setup of the line which is why such a thing is very unpopular in the USA.
A move towards the short term and cutting things with long term benefits made local manufacturing inflexible. Meanwhile the Chinese are still copying the successful US businesses of the 1960s so are still flexible.
If they hit the "just change the appearance every year and it will sell - sack those engineers we don't need them anymore" attitude of a great deal of US manufacturing management then there will be no benefit to outsourcing. However, if the trend continues, by then they will own the market and there won't be US money available to pay the Chinese to make stuff.
I agree, outsourcing is good if you want something done you can't do in-house, but I wanted to point out why I think it's not being done locally and how I think some places that have outsourced their core business are doomed.
Also people just cannot see themselves falling into that position so they blame the victims. The attitudes to and of the Katrina refugees pointed that out very well - we had "pious" people like Barbara Bush saying that people who were homeless before Katrina should not be helped and we had people that suddenly found themselves becoming the "worthless homeless person" they never imagined they would be and having to rely on charity, even if it was only for a short time.
Another way to look at it is at this time any homeless person in the USA has a more positive financial balance sheet than Donald Trump. He defaulted on a couple of vast fortunes in debt and comes nowhere near matching them since, but his connections allow him to be respected instead of despised like the homeless people that also ran out of money.
Oh yeah, if anybody is pro nuclear must be either misguided or a paid propagandist
I didn't say anything about nuclear one way or another which is why I'm calling your distraction and accusations childish.
but I would call myself a scientist
Oh FFS. Act your age.
However in production it's better to make very gentle changes to a unstable house of cards even if it is utter shit held together by chewing gum and string.
To work in both you need to be able to switch between mindsets because they are really very different jobs. Someone working in both is not ideal. Even if you are very good at both there is a strong temptation to make radical changes, make incremental changes an place them in production and thus limit options in development or to develop something new that incorporates the flaws of something in production. An ideal is good communication between people in both roles.
"Switching hats" can result in too many compromises and being either too conservative or too radical for the project. If you are stuck in that situation external input from testers or somewhere is vital as a sanity check.
Honestly, I'm not paid to post here
I never suggested that. However in hindsight you are acting as if you were so I can understand now why you decided you needed to point out that you are recycling silly propaganda for free.
You have stated that you are no longer a child. I suggest acting accordingly and lay off the stupid lies or you will get people taking you to task for such stupid lies.
