  1. Florida hurricane report https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/09/29/hurricane-ian-recovery-update/
  2. Added here for the technical discussion as suggested. I guess you could say it worked pretty well - in the thick of everything and still managed the best crew survival stats of any RAF aircraft
  3. For a somewhat different look I'd recommend John Steinbeck's "Once there was a war". Particularly the chapter "Mussolini" on rumours that develop on a troop ship sailing under information silence.

  5. Something else to worry about How did a non-Timken bearing race get into a GM product built about 20 years ago? https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=247019
  6. Seeing as the discussion has drifted to technology transfer I'll add this -
  7. Should I add that to the Randy Sohn thread?
  8. Or up-market it to the Minoan bull gymnastics?
  9. Due to the lock downs and limited numbers at funerals here video streaming became common. Not quite like being there and no chance of a wake though.
  10. A friend of years agone was a Lancaster flight engineer flying out of UK. Two things I remember - He had been put through the Rolls Royce Merlin school for flight engineers and had the ultimate respect for them. Reckoned they knew the product so well that they could tell you how to go to about 99% of killing a Merlin without actually succeeding. And one flight emergency landing had them land at a US bomber airfield and great over night hospitality. Next morning it took 3 B17 bomb trains to unload the Lanc.
  11. A thought that fits here IMO. This was in a book I'm reading about the pioneers who settled the remote parts of Australia - "Frequently I have heard the expression "They don't make 'em like that any more", but expect they do; it's the times they don't make any more. Perhaps fortunately". Seems "the great anonymous they" are h*** bent on making the times again for them to re-appear

  13. If you look at his share price record he is probably on a very short fuse. And seems all the other fake meat outfits are also losing money - “Plant-based foods get a drubbing from researchers” “Financially and nutritionally less than sound, say pair of studies.” https://www.farmersweekly.co.nz/plant-based-foods-get-a-drubbing-from-researchers/ Via http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/2022/09/17/im-not-eating-bugs-4/ And comments there
  14. "Until we meet again" https://spectator.com.au/2022/09/until-we-meet-again/
