The mute button is your friend. The music sucks big green horse apples.

Hmmm...it’s not often one gets the perspective of viewing old movies in an outdoor hubcap sales booth on a windy day with a bunch stoned and or drunk guys playing their favorite crappy instruments.

The amount of manual labor back then is amazing! (And shirts and ties!)

The new AirBus factory in Alabama is building huge jet airliners with only 1500 employees. Robots do the bulk of the work. Just a few years ago, a factory building these planes would have 15,000 employees.

Pretty Cool, wish the text screens did not go by so fast that there is no way to be able to read them.

Most interesting history, the spruce aircraft.

 

Sitka Spruce was declared a strategic material in WWI as indispensable for aeroplane production, and all of it was taken over by the Army.

As I recall, the so-called Spruce Guns issued to soldiers serving in the Spruce Production Division, a thousand Winchester 1894s are said to be the only time lever-actions were used as official military rifles since the 19th century.
