Nah, I think you have it backwards. The 2-party-system is a natural result of FPTP.
If that were the case, then Canada, UK, India, Australia, and a host of others should have devolved to two party systems long ago. However, all of them have vibrant, multi-party systems. Why? Because it is traditional for them to do so. As a Canadian, it seems really weird to me that Americans only have two candidates to vote for.
Actually, considering the general level of dislike for both the Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls, it seems like this would have been a ripe time for a third party to step up to the plate.
Yep they apparently didn't learn from history and went and created the F-111 all over again, a plane that was supposed to "do it all" and ended up sucking at everything.
Just like the Space Shuttle.
What matters today, where the F-22 dominates, is the range you can get missile lock-on vs your opponent...
Surely that's a function of the missile, not the aircraft.
The funny thing is that VAX VMS is the "parent" of the Windows kernel.
I thought Windows was the colorful clown suit that Microsoft threw over MS-DOS, the illegitimate son of CPM, when they saw how well the first Macintosh was selling.

Blue Origin reached space multiple times. What they didn't reach yet is an orbital trajectory for their payload
which is the hard part.
I'm not so sure about that. Only two rocket systems land their boosters: SpaceX and Blue Origin. On the other hand, there is a multitude of rocket systems that can put payloads in orbit. Considering that once you have the booster slowed down to terminal velocity, it doesn't matter how fast it was originally going; the landing process is going to be the same. So maybe Blue Origin is focussing on the really hard part (the landing) and leaving the easier part (scaling up to orbital speeds) for later.
I'm in the market for a new laptop, so I'll skip all of the Lenovos, and will pass that along to all of my clients. Thanks!
Don't tell us. Tell Levono.
