Re: Getting hot in the Gulf

Update: Looks like the Iranians may have got a second There were also concerns about a second oil tanker, the British-operated, Liberian-flagged Mesdar, which turned sharply north towards Iran's coast, about 40 minutes after the Stena Impero's course shift. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/07/1...

Re: D-DAY SMALL SHIPS MAY BE BEACHED & BROKEN UP.

You're right, of course, about the Little Ships. One is reminded of a quote by Claire Wolfe:
“America is at that awkward stage; it's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

One school I taught at had a problem with the indoor pool, in that when the cover was pulled off in winter, the first swimming lesson sometimes had to be curtailed because the evaporation formed a fog so thick it was not possible to see to the middle of the pool from the edge, the pool building bein...

Re: The bomb run

When at social gatherings, I select my former occupation based upon whether I wish to speak to someone. "Physics teacher" is a great way to avoid further conversation. The weather is often the first icebreaker topic of conversation, and I find a technical explanation of the current weather e.g. "The...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

I was awoken by the 2008 Lincolnshire earthquake, at the furthest distance it was detected. This was because I was in an 18th century solid stone building built on a rock foundation. I knew immediately what it was, then dropped straight off back to sleep. Best wishes to RiS; I really don't fancy liv...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread IV

Without consulting a flt eng I took the risk of pressing it.
Amazing the risks people will take when waiting for a flt eng doesn't involve staying in a 5* hotel by the pool on Rate 1's ;)))

Well, there isn't a need for physics and vector calculus in almost anything if you have the usual margin for error.

Re: ET crash ADD NBO

Ah yes, the old 'looking out of the window' technique. Why do airliners still have windows? I have dodged a fair few mountains in my time, why not just pull max 'g' rather than max back stick*? Would that involve the now-forbidden General Handling, so that pilots know how much pull is required for m...

Re: ET crash ADD NBO

Is this what used to be covered on previous aircraft by telling the pilots not to pull back on the stick so bloody hard?

Re: MFTS - Another "success" story?

The Treasury is always right. The professionals are allowed to determine the options list. The Treasury then determines the budget and conditions which force the choice of the option they want. If that option isn't on the first list, the professionals are sent away until they come back with an optio...
