Did you buy one, or is this a Sunday meditation?

I don't own one. I can't afford it, or the insurance on it.

Nice car, though.

the good news: there appears to be about 320 million different opinions about America is.
the bad news: except for mine, they're all wrong.

When you have an anti-racist hammer in your hand, you tend to see everyone who disagrees with you as a racist.

Test Pilot Reports the F-35 Can’t Dogfight

A test pilot has some very, very bad news about the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
The pricey new stealth jet can’t turn or climb fast enough to hit an enemy plane during a dogfight or to dodge the enemy’s own gunfire,
the pilot reported following a day of mock air battles back in January.


A trillion dollar fiasco that cannot out dogfight an F-16. :(

A craftsman from Mureș county by the name of Peter Szabo made a car out of wood. It was put on display at the Frankfurt car show.
