    If the Ukrainians can break through somewhere, it won't be a whole lot different. Right now, the only question is 'where?' And 'when?'

    I was just looking at Google maps to see the original border (pre-2014) between Ukraine and Russia. It is a crazy zigzagging line of nearly no natural boundaries. It is totally indefensible. I can't imagine what the end game might be, but I'm pretty certain it won't be the original border.

    Sure, no worries.





    1. dragged backwards by galloping horses to a public stadium and beat to death with LaCrosse sticks.

    2. forced to live in Slim Kings attic.



    Frumgibulation as explained here may run afoul of the prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. Unless of it is carried out somewhere like Russia where defenestration already fills the role.

    It is easier to fool a man, than convince him he has been fooled.

    Clearly Russia and Putin are on a winning streak. I'm sure the Russian people are already complaining that all the winning is getting to be too much. So much winning.......

    Thats just plain  UN-American. Soon the AR-15 will be the . "National Gun of the United States,” positioning it alongside official symbols like the bald eagle and Francis Scott Key’s “Star Spangled Banner” in representing the U.S."

    "The bill was unveiled this week by gun store owner Rep. Barry Moore of Alabama. It has been cosponsored by Representatives Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado), Andrew Clyde (R-Georgia) and George Santos (R-New York)."  February 24, 2023

    Glory, glory, Hallelujah.

  5. If anyone really cares about the decline of arctic sea ice this article covers it nicely. It has far too many words for our troll to bother with, but it does have a section on individual scientist's predictions that have turned out to be overstating the speed of the decline. Including the one that has been quoted in the denier circles lately.

    Just wondering how popular this style of kill line bridle is.I find it harder to calibrate (in production) than the older Cazer style bridle.It certainly seems to be a much bigger pain in the ass to install.

    It is not really a popularity contest. It solves one potential problem. Namely the chance of canopy damage from the kill line. The UPT system is more difficult to both assemble and particularly to disassemble. I believe I have seen some tricks and tips to make both easier, but I don't have links to them online.

    Posting a PragerU video as an earnest rebuttal to my point about how embarrassingly lazy reactionaries are? This is extremely funny, no notes, please continue. :halo: 

    Many black people are descended from slave owners. How do you think that happened?

    Curiosity; is an aircraft oil change considered maintenance?  If so, why do DZO’s not being aircraft mechanics do their oil change unsupervised ?  Especially  having zero experience what so ever with aircraft’s. 

    Not in my country. DZs are considered commercial and must hold an Air Operation Certificate. Which is a large part of why jump tickets are more expensive here than in the US.

    That's funny, the ONLY people I hear using 'woke' these days are the alt-right idiots, using it as a pejorative.

    And no, I don't take them at all seriously.

    It is getting to be an all around catchall. Almost the equivalent but opposite of nazi.

    You're sorta OK, I guess, but we don't help our case by threatening death, especially by firearms, in such reactionary company. While I'm there, the same goes with Trump grade name calling.

    The big social media sites usually draw the line and cancel people for advocate killing.

    I have a problem with this part of the woke culture.  Anyone else?

    "If you're looking at this off sheer statistics, nothing opinionated about this, Lia Thomas, the year before when completing as Will Thomas, was ranked in the 500s at best. A year later winning a national title, being the fastest female in the country and then being nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year.

    Yes, I do have a problem with it. There is a reason female athletes compete separately from men and this is not merely unfair, it is grossly unfair.

    And I didn't see the word "gun" anywhere in the Second Amendment.  So much for the right to own guns.

    Have a nice day!

    Well, as an outsider looking in, I would say that for a non democracy you guys sure make a big deal out of your elections.

    They just let the people decide.

    And if your goal is to stimulate the local economy, that's a great way to do it.  If your goal is to help people it's not a good idea.

    I don’t know. It sounds like a lot of people here are assuming the poor people are mostly all undeserving and low quality people drug addicts alcoholics not really deserving or really trustworthy. People are poor for many reasons.

  14. When tax cuts are given out to wealthy Americans, do politicians worry that those people will waste the money? Or do they just let the free market decide how the money will be spent.

    Very artful and honest. I like it. 

    Yes, it is very likely to catch on and become common on social media soon. Especially Twitter. Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war. With the cross of Jesus going on before.
