    does most of the world really hate america

    I don't understand what you are saying, sorry. I'll try to clarify. What I wrote was just what I have heard and experienced with some my fellow neighbors. It's quite disturbing and DANGEROUS that people actually seriously advocate some of the stuff I wrote down as examples.

    does most of the world really hate america

    It is prevalent on both sides, but I can only describe the ones I see daily. WARNING: What I am typing is only just a crude sum of what I experience every day, and by no means I am trying to insult anyone, because for the most part, what I am writing insults Americans the most. There are...

    does most of the world really hate america

    I think hating an entire country just shows how uneducated and irrational a person can be. Living within the physical boundaries of a nation does not change the fact that you are human just like anyone else. Whether you are a young man from America, Canada, South Korea, Japan, France, etc. does...

    I was in Indianapolis watching a pair of F-16s performing low level slow flight when all of the sudden an F-22 comes screaming over at 300 feet at 600 MPH. Unannounced. It was beautiful.

    Plane hits power lines.

    I have bad dreams about hitting power lines. Andy, your situation mimics mine. The power lines are located a mile down from the runway end and all I can do at night is say: "Thank god for VASI."

    Orion won't fly until 2014

    You mean the Ares I, not the Orion CEV? Then, yes, I have a similar attitude toward the program. In fact, I'm starting to agree with John Glenn about the whole point of the VSE, and I'm sure Congress will start changing attitudes also.

    Shuttle A

    I think Doug should do an XR remake of the Shuttle A. He will then surpass the status of a god.

    I first read your post as trans-mars injection. Another one of those "You know you're addicted to Orbiter when..." things.

    It may seem like that, but I believe the US always has reasons to get their nose dirty, whether we know about it or not. Just a general half-truth at the least.

    Very true, Simon. The fighting in these wars is very new to us, and we had to rewrite the handbook on it. I do agree that our leaders have severely underestimate the challenge we brought upon ourselves. For the pills, I could ask my brother for I live with him. He just finished his six years...

    Heavy fighting in South Ossetia.

    Friendly fire is a fact of war. My brother was bombed three times by Dutch F-16's in Afghanistan....luckily, none of them could drop a 500 pounder for what's that worth. But then again, the National Guard has shot at my brother multiple times....once in close vicinity of an American base. But...

    Finally, power is back after three days of hot and humid weather. Damn storm uprooted trees everywhere and took out the power lines. The EF-2 tornado just missed us by a few blocks and I'm glad my roof is still intact!

    Falcon 1 Flight 3 Launch Thread

    Sigh, the amount of work I have to put in this weekend completely shadowed the launch. I was really looking forward to a successful launch, On the other hand: Am I the only one who really enjoys watching rockets explode? Or at least imagining it? :)
