  1. Buy "low," ...? Or is it going to slide into oblivion??? Inquiring minds need to know, (Just not THIS inquiring mind..._)
  2. https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/18/investing/bitcoin-ether-cyrpto-drop/index.html
  3. i still maintain it's the biggest pyramid scam in history. Time will tell.
  4. I wonder what the folk who bought at $67K think about its current value...
  5. The bubble seems to have burst: https://www.coindesk.com/price/bitcoin/
  6. Notwithstanding your reasoning, there is absolutely, and I mean absolutely no good reason for a civilian to own this or anything like this weapon. Read this: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/05/opinions/guns-ar-15-uvalde-school-shooting-fanone/index.html A truly reasonable explanation from someone that knows what these weapons of war do in the hands of civilians. EDITTED TO ADD "NO" good reason. Measure twice, cut once...then cut again...
  7. In the US, here's an excellent article written by a card-carrying member of the NRA in favour of either banning or re-classifying AR15 type weapons: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/05/opinions/guns-ar-15-uvalde-school-shooting-fanone/index.html
  8. America's version of the AK47. Cheap. Easy to fix/replace. Reliable weapon for killing many people in a very, VERY short period of time (seconds).
  9. SUCCESS! I feel much smarter.
  10. Hey Seeker - notwithstanding my PM's, i'll give it another try and advise in next hour or so. MTL
  11. I'm late to the party, apologies! I sent an email to the e-address. Now what? How does an e-transfer work? If Kip thinks he's slow with technology, he's still light years ahead of me!
  12. Wasn't that I didn't read the manual - it was information overload during that time and that tiny little detail slipped through the cracks!
  13. Ture 'nuf, but them 'muricans are closest to us and an antithesis of our legalistic evolution.
  14. Yabut, isn't that the American way? They really seem to embrace their rule breakers/gangsters/oddballs/Trump supporters...
  15. On the other side of the coin, Kip, was my first landing on the line with the 757. I had done a decent job getting us down to about 50 feet on the approach where "landing was assured" and, at 1.3 Vs+5, closed the thrust levers. I can still hear my CCP's voice screaming in my ears. Thankfully after that, I was a quick study and survived 10 more years of heavy jet ops.
  16. SPECI CYOW 211952Z 28038G65KT 1/4SM R07/P6000FT/U R32/4000VP6000FT/D +TSRA OVC050CB 20/17 A2992 RMK RA5CB3 NOTE WIND SPEED PRESRR SL P135 DENSITY ALT 1100FT= WOW! Radar showed local tops >50,000'
  17. Another Golden Handshake? https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/liberal-mp-announces-resignation-from-gta-seat-to-take-un-job 6 1/2 to 7 years on the job and a full life-time pension?
  18. https://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2022/05/19/china-plane-crash-wsj-report-intentional-muntean-dnt-ebof-vpx.cnn
  19. THANK YOU. Article dated 2009. Why is it like pulling teeth getting a source like this to any post?
  20. FAA has cancelled both their certificates. Wonder if it's a permanent cancellation... https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/12/us/pilot-stunt-faa-penalty/index.html
  21. It's usual to post the source of articles like this. The statement "...more than 65 years ago..." is technically correct but from today's year, 1943 was 79 years ago. Would you please post the source? Thanks in advance...
  22. There were three refineries in Dartmouth (across from Halifax) - Esso, Ultramar & (if I recall) Texaco. Two of them were dismantled in the 90's. Why? IRVING! A natural location for a massive refinery is in northern Alberta - adjacent the tar sands (they don't like them called that anymore).
  23. How does one explain why crude oil refined at Cum By Chance is not allowed to be sold in Newfoundland or, as I understand it, anywhere in Canada?
  24. The price of gas at the pumps is a function of the refineries. Canada could be self-sufficient with "gas at the pumps" if it had the refineries to produce product. Why have refineries of the past been shut down? Why are we not paying $2+ / litre now other than the Ukraninian issue?
  25. or I've never been so apprehensive/afraid of a nuclear exchange since listening to JFK in 1962.
