  1. Pretty good - Keeping Up With the Kardasians has them beat though - 10 million viewers/episode.
  2. September 26, 2020 November 11, 2020 November 22, 2020 January 17, 2021 You sure are getting a lot of mileage out of that article Deicer - time for some new material!
  3. That's a beautiful article by Maclean's. I didn't think they had it in them. Now, just a few more articles about the Covid contracts handed out in QB and and the WE debacle and put them on "repeat"!
  4. I've been following this guy for a few years and I do have a de-googled phone. If anybody wants to hear more about - let me know.
  5. You can still read the previous posts so nothing is lost although I don't know how many people are going too far back in the 211 pages of the Trump thread. Note that I said the threads are "locked" (no new posts) not "blocked" from being read. Think of it as a fresh start.
  6. I've received private messages from many members. Consensus seems to be that the non-aviation forum is something that people want and would miss if it was gone. What people don't want are posts with personal attacks, racism, anti-gay statements, etc, etc. Everyone knows the list. Look, I'm not a lawyer and I can't write a list of; you can do this, but you can't do that, you can say this, but you can't say that. I expect civil discourse. The community expects civil discourse. Be respectful to each other. If necessary I will use the tools available; modifying/deleting p
  7. This is the same thing that was being said before Christmas. I wouldn't expect the new guy to anything to say for the first 6 months until he gets briefed-in.
  8. Exchange Income Corporation I had no idea that EIC had so much on-the-go.
  9. The "non-aviation" forum is turning into a bigger problem than I would have expected. Member posting/replying in this forum temporarily turned off, regular "aviation" forum continues as normal. Please send you opinion (by private message) on whether we should continue having a non-aviation section or not and what, if any, improvements are suggested. Thanks seeker
  10. Yup, I've watched it a dozen times! Reminds me of the WKRP thanksgiving day turkey drop. The dry delivery of the reporter makes it so much better.
  11. Awesome. What do think the odds are of the same being done with Twitter Antifa posts?
  12. I don't know much about big water boating - biggest thing I've had was a 17 foot Bayliner but I do know green water over the bow is a bad thing.
  13. The manager at a government office which has been telling Canadians to avoid travel for 10 months takes a free trip and then boasts about it on her blog!? Seriously, if you wrote that into the plot of a movie or book it wouldn't be accepted. The politicans who got caught at least had enough sense to try to hide their activities. Baker, apparently, didn't even think she should try to hide it. With decision-making skills like that you have to wonder how she gets through her day.
  14. It does when you're commenting on how some other person's opinion may have changed. A330 might be right or he might be wrong - either way he's entitled to his opinion but pointing out that he's relatively new is a valid counter.
  15. Story selection may favour the right but they are also mostly factual and no failed fact checks. Overall I would give them a higher rating than CNN. Their rating is listed by the same website as: Overall, we rate CNN left biased based on editorial positions that consistently favors the left, while straight news reporting falls left-center through bias by omission. We also rate them Mixed for factual reporting due to several failed fact checks by TV hosts. (PS - CNN denigrates the right every chance they get!)
  16. An interesting Canadian news site I stumbled across: C2C According to media bias fact check : the C2C Journal produces original long-form journalism from a libertarian/conservative perspective and they have no failed fact checks.
  17. Article posted by Airband, above, says that before this purchase Amazon had 80 aircraft in their fleet! I had no idea their operation was so big.
  18. Take a read through this article regarding immigrants in California deciding maybe they would be better off going back to Mexico: www.theguardian.com Full of head-scratching little pearls like this: Even before the Trump administration implemented its anti-immigrant policies, and even before the pandemic hit, non-citizens had less access to healthcare and health insurance, as well as safety net programs like food stamps and unemployment. In May and June, undocumented immigrants were not eligible to get stimulus checks from the federal government. Yes, it's true, non-citizens had
  19. Ain't that the truth? Foolish once for not knowing the meaning, foolish twice for not taking the time to research the meaning, foolish thrice for acting on it in such a public forum without knowing the meaning. Amen is a transliteration of the Hebrew word amen [em'a]. The verb form occurs more than one hundred times in the Old Testament and means to take care, to be faithful, reliable or established, or to believe someone or something. Personally, I'm offended by implication that there are only two genders. What about the millions (apparently) of persons who don't identify as male
  20. I happened to see a tv today tuned to CNN - big banner across the bottom of the screen: "US vaccination effort remains woefully behind schedule" This must come as a big shock to regular CNN viewers since they've been told incessantly for the last 10 months that any hope of having a vaccination before Q4 2021 was foolishly irrational. I also remember several CNN experts saying getting a vaccination before the middle of 2021 would "be a miracle". So, which is it; is the US woefully behind schedule or are they experiencing a miracle? I'm thinking somewhere around the 3rd w
  21. If a Canadian military Challenger was reported to have been spotted in Barbados one can only draw from two possible conclusions; the spotting was false (unreliable observer) or some high-level politician took a trip. I give each possibility equal odds. Are military flight manifests subject to "access to information" requests?
  22. They were actually both stalled. Crashed during an airshow practice flight. While executing a "go-around" Approximately three quarters of the way through the turn, the aircraft banked past 90 degrees, stalled, clipped a power line with the left wing and crashed. https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/17433 I get your point though; the B-52 was out-of-control and then it stalled while the A330 stalled and then went out-of-control - in one the stall was the cause and in the other the stall was the effect. My point was more about inability to recover from high bank angle/nose low upset
  23. RC pilot does (unintentional) re-enactment of B-52 crash. Skip to 3:55 if you're impatient: B-52 crash 1994:
