You jest, but people with major depression don't feel happy after either. Somewhat relaxed, sure, but still mostly miserable. That is, what a clinical depression does to people - they just can't enjoy anything anymore.

Eh? Are you talking about the actual satellite states or the union republics?
Swiftkey is better than Swype if you type more than you swipe and often type in several languages (which totally breaks any swipe algorithm). This is why I disable Flow in first place (and it is also a memory hog, as the rest of Swiftkey).
Russian doesn't have regular pronunciation because of the fucked up stress system. Even native speakers can get confused when they try to read a multisyllable word they haven't heard yet. Czech would be a much better example of a Slavic language with regular (but difficult in its own way) pronunciation.
Unfortunately by that time the plane ran out of fuel the passengers were long suffocated. Maybe the steward could have survived.
Poor training, I guess. It would not be the first time pilots interpret an upcoming stall as something else. For example, a Tu-154 (and this is not a very smart airplane - there is some automation, but it is pretty unsophisticated) crashed in 1985 because the crew mistook the airplane vibrating due to almost stalling to being engine surges and reduced the power. I think that was the deadliest Tu-154 crash ever.
You don't fly by the seat of your pants in IFR. Doing that inevitably leads to spatial disorientation and then you fall out of the sky.
The last incident with a pilot causing a plane to crash was back in 1995
ORLY? More like 2013.
And yes, most aviation incidents cause changes in policies, rules and procedures, which is a good thing. If it doesn't happen, it just causes more crashes, like USAir Flight 405.
But it was. It kept the plane stable within the flight envelope so it wouldn't stall at low speed it flew, limiting the angle of attack to a safe one even when the pilot used his side stick for maximum nose pitch up. It helped to lessen the pilot's workload during the landing.
You can read it all up in the NTSB report of the accident:
For example this:
The Airbus simulation indicated that the airplane performed as designed and was in the alpha-protection mode from 150 feet to touchdown. As discussed previously, the captain's attention was narrowed, which would have made it difficult for him to maintain awareness of the airplane's low-speed condition during the descent.
Despite being unable to complete the Engine Dual Failure checklist, the captain started the auxiliary power unit, which improved the outcome of the ditching by ensuring that a primary source of electrical power was available to the airplane and that the airplane remained in normal law and maintained the flight envelope protections, one of which protects against a stall.
Eh? F-35 is slow and underpowered, not fast and overmuscled. Its engine is very powerful indeed, maybe the most powerful ever built for a jet fighter, but it is only one for an airframe that is heavier than a much larger F-15. It cannot even fly Mach 2.
I might be corrected, but I don't think there is any word in Ukrainian that has "dzr" somewhere in it. To be honest, I am not sure if there is any Slavic language that has something like that. Not even the Czech, who infamously can have whole sentences without vocals.
You wanted an example of a bad point you made - well, the next posting of yours I've seen is one.
All these drinking bladders aren't approved for alcohol. It probably will damage the seals and the coating inside the bladder.
I think I make a lot of good points and there are a lot of posts I'm quite proud of really.
Honestly? I have yet to see a good one. Might be Dunning-Kruger in action here.
This is only valid if you enjoy driving. If you don't, then the driving time will be wasted time, but you can read a book in the bus. I often do, or watch anime.
They don't even really work for English.
