  1. I have a history with these planes and have fond memories of it. My first duty station in the Air Force was at a SAC base and my job was running the backup generators on the base but not for the aircraft, but some of our generators were near the flight line and I had a friend who worked on the B52's and his job was avionics and I got to go aboard the planes a couple of times. I had some interesting TDY assignments when I was with SAC working for the Radar Bombing Squadron running the generators for the radar aboard a train that traveled to different latitudes in both north and south America. I was in two different locations. One was just outside of Beaver Utah and the other was in Alberta Canada near Calgary just on the outskirts of Dinosaur national park. My quarters consisted of a berth on the train which was real cozy with a bed next to a big picture window. Part of my off duty time was looking for little fossils and there were millions of tiny fossils on the ground everywhere. I had a nice collection of them which I eventually lost. But most of my off duty time was getting to know the small town girls who seemed to be fascinated with American servicemen. Just about everybody on the train got laid, at least most of the single guys like me, but a couple of the married guys, too.
  2. To recall an old once popular expression, "If she had a brain, she'd be dangerous."
  3. The ads aren't the lest bit of a problem if you have an ad blocker like uBlock Origin The bigger problem is that the moderators block things for arbitrary reasons. I've had multiple posts removed and have recieved many warningsw. the only reason I haven't been banned or suspended is because every time I receive a warning, rather than trying to argue with them I apologize for breaking their Jive-ass rules. Here's a post that was removed for being "Racist" I don't think it's racist, I think it shows the hypocrisy of those who claim to be anti-racist. The rules on this forum give everyone a lot more leeway and yet anything that is truly offensive is not allowed.
  4. Apparently Paul Pelosi chose a hammer to defend himself instead of a gun and it was taken from him and used against him which is exactly what liberals always say will happen to you if you try to use a gun to defend yourself, insisting that only criminals know how to use guns and therefore only criminals should be allowed to have them. And as usual, the Liberals have it Bass-ackwards which is consistent with their entire world view. The fact is that a hammer, a knife or even a baseball bat can be taken away from someone 82 years of age by someone younger and stronger in close quarters, as opposed to gun which can be used effectively at a distance and no matter how much bigger or younger or stronger your attacker is, a handgun is the great equalizer and yet Pelosi, her husband, and their ideological brethren are opposed to honest citizens or, apparently, even dishonest citizens such as themselves, from having them and knowing how to use them.
  5. I was a huge fan and I'm greatly saddened by the news though at his age it's not unexpected. He had a good run. I was about ten years old when "Great balls of fire" came out and me and my 10 year old buddies couldn't believe anyone would be allowed to sing that on the radio. But it was great rock and roll and unlike anything that had ever been done before. "Whole lotta shakin goin on" was also incredible. Dennis Quaid did a great job of playing Jerry Lee in the movie. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/jerry-lee-lewis-dead-obituary-1234616945/
  6. And not only that, but if you accuse them of cheating, even if there is evidence that they cheated, you are guilty of being an "Election Denier". but how come the term "Elections Denier" is in common use, but no one ever uses the term "Election Fraud Denier"? I'd like to see more people start using that term.
  7. "The accused killer and alleged beauty queen also faced a battery charge in June after police discovering during the airport arrest that there was a warrant for Bustami out of the Las Vegas municipal court. Also, I'm not sure about this, but I think her name, Hend Bustami is Latin for "Has Boobs" so I suppose she's one of those women who think that having boobs should allow them to get away with anything, but from what I can see, her's aren't even all that special.
  8. It's even harder to tell the difference between earlier years but there were small differences. For example the earlier ones, 49 and 50 didn't have wind wings in front of the side windows and 51 through 54 all had them. 55 through 57 were completely restyled and in my opinion were the best looking of all the Chevy trucks
  9. That's not a 53, it's a 54. I had one of those. The 49-53 all had the straight horizontal bar grille but the 54 had the grille that was one horizontal bar and one vertical bar in the center. The truck pictured has a floor shifter. if that's original then it's probably the compound low trans That's what mine had and in 54 they went to the 235 cubic inch six which was a much better engine than the old stovebolt 216 and had more easily replaceable rod and crank bearings rather than babbit bearings. I wish I still had that truck.
  10. At the age of 12 Sikorsky built a rubber band powered helicopter.
  11. For that reason I always have found it ironic that Germany caused Einstein to leave that country and flee to the US.
  12. I've never understood why Republican states are considered Red and Democrat states are considered Blue. Maybe calling the Democrats Red was just too obvious.
  13. This is really good. and I hope he's right, but in any close election, the Dems always have vote fraud on their side. Here Comes the Democrat Rout Kurt Schlichter Townhall.com Oct 24, 2022 Students of military history understand that the real bloodletting starts when the losing side breaks ranks after its formations disintegrate and the cavalry sweeps in to mow down the fleeing survivors. It’s every man for himself, and the best the defeated individuals who were once part of cohesive units can hope for is not to end up one of the bodies left strewn across the battlefield. This is when the victor runs up the score. This is when the vast majority of casualties happen. This is a rout. And that’s pretty much where the Democrats are headed on November 8th, figuratively of course. For the stupid people, we Republicans are the cavalry. For the really stupid people, cavalry is a highly-mobile fighting force, in ancient times mounted on horseback wielding lances, sabers, and sometimes bows or carbines. In the US Army, cavalrymen have given up their steeds but still wear bitchin’ headgear. Those of us who have been through a few midterm election cycles understood how this was going to play all along. The fundamentals favor the out-of-power party. Here, the fundamentals broke into a pharmacy and stole all the steroids because the gross incompetence of Grandpa Badfinger has combined with the wine woman/globalist joint ideology that demands that the ruling caste make the normals suffer for their sin of not being in the ruling caste. These factors come together to make this election an inevitable Democrat disaster. This is how it happens for the losing party. In the spring, there are rumors and hushed whispers among the cognoscenti about the coming of a wave. There is fear; this is used to stoke the donors into handing over more of their dollars to help stave off disaster. Then, in the dog days of August, there arises hope. Maybe, just maybe, it will not be a disaster. Perhaps we will defy history and not lose many seats; maybe we will even gain! Take that, fundamentals! And then Labor Day happens and people begin to pay attention and the hope that was so hopeful at the end of the summer begins to dissipate. For a few weeks, until about mid-October, they tell themselves that nothing has changed since summer, that hope is alive, and that there will be no wave. And in mid-October, the signs become impossible to ignore. The money dries up for the losing party, while the smart money flows to the winning one. Polls start changing, first one, then two, then all of them, all in one direction. We hear of the losing side making tough calls to abandon the weak to try and save a few of the less weak. Nothing goes right. Gaffes, mistakes, the occasional sex scandal. You can feel the gloom setting in. The cheerleaders begin hedging their predictions. When the Democrats are the losers, like in this cycle, the regime media begins walking back its official optimism to avoid total humiliation when the narrative it has been pushing for the last six months turns to ashes. Then the ranks break. The solid front shatters. The rout begins. We’re almost there. We are almost to the point of Democrat collapse. The fundamentals of history were always against the Dems, but Shower Daddy’s reign of error supercharged them. Inflation. Perversion. Open borders. Criminals running wild. The threat of nuclear war. These factors all intensified the Dem’s already daunting challenges. And then last week, in a stroke of timing genius, the Biden CDC decided to effectively mandate that kids have to take the vaccine the CDC lied to us about. Way to remind everyone about COVID while infuriating moms who prefer their kids’ hearts not explode from a vax that won’t prevent a disease that won’t kill them. Any GOP politician not pounding on injection fascism is committing political malpractice. In the spring, they dreamed that the Dobbs decision, which made it slightly less convenient for some women in some red states to kill their babies, would negate the fundamentals of history and $6 gas. But it turns out the people into infanticide was already solidly in the commie corner. They may cast votes angrily, but a mad vote counts just as much as a happy one. Except in a Democrat-blue city, but I digress. In the meantime, record numbers of Latinx people are choosing to vote against the people who call them “Latinx,” and black men especially are moving right in numbers that must terrify the Dems. The traditional sign of a rout is when the losing party turns on itself and its platform. You see pols criticize the members of their party in power and even tell voters they will not go along with its treasured policies. We see inklings of this in how most Democrats will not allow the Biden n’ Kamala circus to stop in their towns. It’s remarkable how all these candidates discover something really important to do when their prezzy shows up in their state besides be seen with him. One rare exception was when Fetterman/Fetterman’s Wife/Fetterman’s Lump allowed itself to be photographed with the crusty president. In typical Biden fashion, he helpfully told the world that he thought Fetterman’s wife would make a great addition to the Senate. Rumor has it that Fetterman’s Lump was so insulted by the slight that it will be voting for Dr. Oz. The ”save yourselves!” phase will be starting soon, but the Democrats have a real problem they did not face in the past. At one time, they had some ideological flexibility. They could pretend that they were not as left as they were to save themselves by peeling off enough gullible independents to survive, and their base would see the wink and tolerate the blasphemy of convenience. But not now. No, Democrat ideology has become a pagan religion where it was once merely a way to get power. Most candidates cannot back off from the stupidest Democrat policy planks even at the cost of their electoral lives. They cannot demand more drilling to get gas and oil prices down because that is heresy toward the angry weather goddess. They cannot support cops because that’s racist. They cannot come out against perverts in woman's faces waving their junk in toddlers’ faces at “family friendly drag shows” because pedo-shaming is a no-go for libs. They are locked into insanity. They cannot run. They cannot hide. They must figuratively die with their Birkenstocks on.
  14. This is a debate in my home state of Washington in Spokane. I didn't know it was today or I would have gone to watch it https://www.q13fox.com/news/watch-town-hall-between-washington-candidates-for-us-senate-patty-murray-tiffany-smiley
