Comment One Plane (Score 4, Funny) 193

We are getting close to having a one plane military.

Law Number XVI: In the year 2054, the entire defense budget will purchase just one aircraft. This aircraft will have to be shared by the Air Force and Navy 3-1/2 days each per week except for leap year, when it will be made available to the Marines for the extra day.

THAT SEEMS LIKE A GOOD IDEA. I'M VERY HAPPY WITH MY NEW CAPS LOCK KEY. OH WAIT, DID YOU MEAN A SHIFT KEY?

the one problem with using my new caps lock key is that the slashdot filter complains that it's like yelling and refuses to post my comment. maybe these sentences will mollify it. haha it worked.

Comment Re:Will be watching from Connecticut (Score 3, Informative) 36

Looking at the map, it seems like the direction to look from Connecticut will be south/southeast (but mostly south). It first has to rise above the Earth's curvature far enough to be visible from CT, and by that time it's already quite far out to sea to the east. Looks like a similar situation in NJ - it's not going to appear to the southwest.
