Comment Re:Signal triangulation = GPS (Score 1) 172

Even without any atmosphere, the diffraction-limited resolution of a 2.5 m optical system watching from a 200 km altitude is limited to ~5 cm. Is that sufficient for reading the plates? (Even that number is only for watching from straight above, which sort of doesn't work for vehicle license plates - Pythagoras then applies for diagonal lines of view.)

The problem is that something as basic as not wanting to bend over, drop your underwear and let an immigrant rape you senseless is now deemed xenophobia.

Exaggerated rhetoric? Barely. didn't include rape. did.

People being told they're xenophobic for trivial shit is one of the reasons Trump is so popular. He doesn't let the labels being attached to him stop him sharing his views.

Are you a fucking imbecile?

You really think a corner shop, a bar, the local butcher is going to take their $2000 daily revenue and dispose of it?
