  1. I just got updated from one of my teens whose latest online gaming friend is from Melbourne. Quite the calamity going on down under.
  2. How about thorium nuclear energy? https://world-nuclear.org/information-library/current-and-future-generation/thorium.aspx It may be the best bridge between petroleum and unobtanium.
  3. Not a bad attempt, but pales in comparison to the Pythons' Australian wine review...
  4. Or, wow, that performance was brought to us by the French Bee training department.
  5. Thanks for all your contributions over the years Moon. As I have said before when others have retired, your input has helped me in what I do. Don't think because you have retired you have nothing to contribute. I hope to see you back.
  6. Sorry for the thread drift, but the latest is a hyper loop between Edmonton and Calgary. Rail is so 20th century.
  7. It's as bad as the miracle of high speed rail service between Edmonton and Calgary. Make it stop!
  8. An example of some structure monitoring tech https://www.remotedatum.co.uk/structural-monitoring/
  9. You would think that in the world of differential GPS it wouldn't be all that tough to create baseline measurements and then measure them annually. Should be a requirement for all reclaimed swamp land buildings.
  10. No mention of the hazard of mental health issues; German Wings for example.
  11. Awesome blended winglets.
  12. Humans got off easy with this pandemic exercise. Like accidents, I hope some good change comes so that we are better prepared for the next one. For example, the promise of creating a government vaccine lab (Canada's last one being shut down by Mulroney in 1980's).
  13. To me it's all about managing the health care system's ability to cope. Nobody wants an India situation where they are dying in the hospital parking lots.
  14. The Cirrus had a 160 kt ground speed in the turn to final.
  15. Ahhh, but did you hug and cry afterwards.
  16. I am interested in the shoe they use. Quiet, quick and precise. I feel like going for a walk...
  17. Function over form....I guess. It is like a really bad movie where it is actually good in some respects. Definitely in the category of things that Mom loves.
  18. And if an airshow is managed well when tragedy strikes, the risk to others is significantly reduced. https://www.bst-tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/aviation/2016/A16W0094/A16W0094.html
  19. The best thing about Darkside was that it's profits were used to fund the Monty Python and the Holy Grail production....."who is it that is so wise in the ways of science?"
  20. The prep (God awful juice) is worse than the scope. I was fortunate to be somewhat lucid and watched the monitor for a bit...weird to see your insides. Then I drifted off...it all seemed like a dream.
  21. Great collection of aviation lectures. Just watched the one on the F14 design...fantastic stuff. https://youtube.com/user/PeninsulaSrsVideos
  22. All that counts is that you like it Mitch. You don't need the internet's help to verify if what moves you is "good" or "bad". That's the great part about art. If it works for you...it is awesome! I continually use this explanation for why I am a Rush fan.
  23. ...but survive for how long? WHO data shows that the mortality rate for 5-14 year olds in India is 5x higher than for Canada. https://www.who.int/data/gho/data/indicators/indicator-details/GHO/mortality-rate-for-5-14-year-olds-(probability-of-dying-per-1000-children-aged-5-14-years)
