  1. My priorities are a bit different. We know less about what lies under this planet’s ocean than we do about outer space. There’s more useful stuff to be discovered down there for less money than what’s on the moon.
  2. I had a PT 19 like the one in the film with the Cox .049 engine. Crashed it a lot early on. Thank goodness for the rubber band assembly. This kid had a really cool dad. Drove a Corvette and flew a real Comanche…!
  3. After burning thru somewhat more than a few billion $$$, they might be able to achieve what was done back in the 60s. Yes, I have an opinion.
  4. That tractor’s got nothing on this margarita machine. Saw this at a liquor store a few years ago.
  5. That's nerdy right there, I don't care who you are.
  6. Hijack alert!! Ok, so the M-79 was deemed obsolete as a stand-alone weapon and also not versatile enough, so it was combined with the AR platform to make the M-203. But now, the M-203 is obsolete and they're going back to a stand-alone weapon with an improved version of the M-79 with the M-320? I don't get it.
  7. Looks like a scene from the movie “Fargo”…
  8. Is that an MG-42? And is that Aaron Rogers preparing to fire on the defensive line?
  9. That link didn’t work for me, maybe this one will?
  10. Here’s what 4014 looked like without photo enhancement/illustration while in Kansas City 9/21. An amazing and beautiful piece of machinery.
  11. That doesn’t look like “The Gay Caballero” movie I saw way back when…
  12. Our area is lousy with them. Never seen anyone pedaling. They ride them at motor scooter speeds on sidewalks and paths. They aren’t bicycles, they’re mopeds, like the Hondas of 1960s. Never saw anyone pedal those either.
  13. I’ve got one of those with oak leaves…
  14. I've always been a fan of Raymond Lowey designs like this one for the Pennsylvania RR. Henry Dreyfuss designed the other locomotive for the New York Central RR.
  15. American Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu divorced her parents at the age of 17 because they were using millions of $$$ of her money for themselves.
  16. Safety razors were invented for a reason. In my hands, it would take me 45 minutes to shave and I’d probably still look like Raymond Massey in Arsenic and Old Lace. Besides, shaving to me is a chore, so the quicker the better. A barber I went to used one to trim the back of my neck and around the ears. He was very skilled with it. That was over 50 years ago. Since the whole AIDS thing came on the scene decades ago, I don’t think their use is allowed anymore in Kansas without specialized protocols and training. Translation - too expensive for too little demand.
  17. “If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?” - Steven Wright
  18. Highly likely. My son was a wildland firefighter and occasionally worked along the border. He said his crew would be walking into the woods and illegals were walking out.
  19. “How old would you be, if you didn’t know how old you was?” Satchel Paige
  20. Bwahaha!! That’s funny right there, I don’t care who you are!
