I got zero, as in big fat Goose egg responses. None. Now I'm not a hideous guy, but you know the low earnings probably was a turnoff, and honestly dating sites seem to be basically women sign up then sit back and brace themselves for the ocean of responses while doing absolutely zero looking.

Agree that the trend lines were there before 2009, but that was the tipping point. It still took 2 more years to convince my wife to move to rural Kansas.

We are going to outlast them. We just need more red on red. I am pushing that.

For example: Blacks that are not insiders are becoming the new slaves, with no protections. Just like Indians are now being ignored, and written out of what remains of our history as a nation. All the ire on the Left is against whites, and the racism can not be hid. We can highlight their insanity.

52 Moose are not to be messed with. They kill more people than Bear if I remember right. Eyesight is poor, and they think you're a rival suitor or whatever.

In terms of collisions they are bad news too. Deer will damage a car badly, but Moose are very tall and tend to come through the windshield, widely considered unpleasant. And deadly.

There were (2+2) versions made of each (I think), but the 240Z was the first one, then some incremental improvements were the 260Z, then the 280Z with some more incremental changes in style and mechanicals.
I knew a guy that had a 240Z, and it was pretty fast (could top out at about 140 mph). I also knew a couple of people that had 280Z's, and they could run out fast too.
I think the 280Z had fuel injection, and the 240Z and 260Z had carburetors.

81 If somebody had to shoot a moose with a .45, presumably a 1911, that was a sporty situation, to put it mildly.

No expert, but a 1911 vs. an adult moose ..... is not a desirable match-up. 850FPS with 230 grains, regardless of projectile design, just isn't much when dealing an animal that might weigh well over 1K pounds.

She verified what we all suspected this week: rather than permitting her to return the working dogs, pets and rescues to the shelter from the airport after the military/State blocked their flight, the military demanded the cages opened and the pups released. She reported many of the dogs are dead, but she is still working to rescue those that remain, even though it is an unstable and unsafe situation.

Posted by: Soothsayer

The E-type Jag had 3.5 liter in line six with DOHC, and fuel injection (in the 1960's). Pretty sophisticated engine, when it ran properly.

The Z-car had a smaller block, a straight six like the Austin Healy 3000. Which also had dual carburetors.
The 240Z and 260Z had dual carburetors.
By the time the 280Z came out, it had fuel injection.

The British Army in North Africa call the M-5 "Honeys" they got through Lend-Lease because, get this, they RAN reliably.

The British came out with the DeHaviland Comet, the first jet airliner after WWII. Beautiful airplane, and then they had a couple of terrible accidents, and discovered the plane had some serious engineering flaws. Square windows, and the wings weren't robust enough and failed in flight. Destroyed DeHaviland's reputation.

128 A real oddity of the Nissan line, at least when I briefly sold them back in '07-'08, was the complete lack of standardization among their models regarding just about anything. Even among different trim levels of the same model, oftentimes.

The different cars had at least five different mechanisms to open the frickin' gas tank door. They had four different nav systems. Pretty much anything you can think of ==> at least two and usually more, and always in different places.

Had to be tremendously expensive, one would think. Sure made them a drag for salesmen to get boned up on them.

We got so much from the UK, starting with the cavity magnetron. They had some good aircraft designs, but it was spotty. Spitfires and Mosquitos
were good.

But there were over 20,000 strikes by union labor making war machines during WWII in Britain. There were lots of construction issues.

The RN was quite innovative in CVs right up to the 1960s. And their submarine and EW / CIC training is still topnotch. Except for the odd issue with a few crews. Like here too.

I heard the author interviewed by two Brit WWII author/fanatics on their podcast*, sounds great. Lots of the familiar and colorful governing realities under it all - human, not technological.

IIRC, one of the major causes of the early crashes was metal fatigue. Caused/exacerbated by window shapes. Comets were among the first pressurized aircraft that routinely went to 30,000 feet and back down down, and they did a fair number of flight cycles, leading to unexpected fatigue cracks. The Comet experience drove the development of modern fatigue crack engineering techniques.

164 @44 My aunt in Alaska says moose to vehicle crashes usually total the vehicle

Buddy and I drove to Alaska in a little Mazda B2000 truck. Just a few miles past the AK border we saw a cow moose trotting down the middle of the road. I'm from Wyoming, so I've seen moose, but she was enormous. if we had hit her she would have smashed the roof of the truck and likely killed us.

We followed her as she trotted ahead of us, then she veered and leapt over one of the snow berms that flanked the highway (late April).

The Rolls-Royce Merlin 61, or the V-1650 as the USAAF called the Packard license built versions, is a 12 cylinder liquid cooled engine with the banks arranged in an upright V. It is fitted with a two stage mechanical supercharger.

The Allison V-1710 is also a liquid cooled inline engine with 12 cylinders. As fitted to the Mustang, there was no supercharger so power rapidly fell off above 15,000ft.

Both the RAF and USAAF would fly their Allison Mustangs until the end of the war.

I heard the author interviewed by two Brit WWII author/fanatics on their podcast*, sounds great. Lots of the familiar and colorful governing realities under it all - human, not technological. The top kraut and Brit engine guys were friends before the war, the whole community was pretty collaborative. Just one example.

The Panther (Mark V ) was kind of underpowered and had transmission problems with the "Final Drive" gear, always breaking down.
But it had really good armor sloping, and the 75 mm gun was quite effective (high muzzle velocity).
The Tigers were heavier and had even more mechanical problems. But when running, were more than a match for almost any tank on the battle field in WWII.

233 @168 The Russkies had some really lousy tanks, too, until the T-34 appeared in numbers.

---------

The T-34 was an all-around revolutionary (in the non-political sense of the word...) tank design. It had armor protection equivalent to the heavy tanks of the era (aside from the KV-1, which had even heavier armor). It had a gun that could knock holes in its own armor - which its opponents did not. And it was very fast - almost as fast as the M3 Stuart, in fact.

The *only* gun in the German arsenal at the time that could reliably knock one out at range was the 88. The T-34 was a very nasty shock to the Germans. Usually in tanks of the same era, there's a trade-off. One tank has heavier armor, but is slower, etc... That wasn't the case with the T-34. It did *everything* better.

The only flaws were mechanical issues, the lousy turret design, and a shortage of radios.

245 I think the T-34 was OK for reliability/availability. Also, a key thing little mentioned, fairly easy to repair in the field. In any case it had the virtue of the Sherman on the other front - no matter how many the other side knocked out or broke down ..... more just kept magically appearing, in a never-ending stream.
Posted by: rhomboid (OTzUX)

I saw pictures of T-34's going into battle with a spare engine strapped on the back deck.
The British called the Sherman's "Ronson's", because they would light up on the first try (hit).
I actually read something once that a Soviet General had a high opinion of the M-4 Sherman (lend lease), when it was used correctly. And the Soviets used M-5 tanks in Scouting units, because they were pretty fast.

276 T-34 was overrated. The Russians had a TON of them which made up for them not being that great. Also why they ended up all over the world being used for decades. In Korea the late Shermans tore them up with little problem. Tanks generally took a big leap about 1943 and the Russians were just a bit faster with the 34 so it made its rep in 41-42 when the Germans still had prewar tanks.

He started showing off, tried to pull off some fancy pants maneuver, and crashed, killing his wife and others iirc.

The Porsche 914, a bastard child of the company, with a lowly 1.7L 4 banger and dual webbers was something to behold, but a nightmare to deal with.

With only about 85 BHP it was more or less an adult go-cart with benefits. I had one for about 5 years and drove it at Laguna Seca a number of times. It's al about momentum in that sled.

On a knife forum, someone asked what knife they should carry in bear country, since firearms were not allowed.

The right answer would be "don't go until they allow firearms," but the best answer was a suggestion to bring a very small knife, because it would hurt less when the bear shoves it up your @ss.

314 The IS-2 was specifically designed to beat the Tiger. And heavier guns pretty much everywhere meant that the Tiger's armor wasn't quite as invincible as it had been before.

Thus, the Konigstiger, Jagdpanther, and Jagdtiger.
Posted by: junior

Funny, I was just watching a YouTube video, and the Panthers and Tigers (fighting in a defensive role) shot up the IS-2 pretty good during a Soviet assault. I think a lot of it was training and experience. The IS-2 had a 122 mm gun, and though powerful, might have needed a lot of practice to hit anything with it at a distance.
I think the later Tigers had a 120 mm gun, too. But the Tigers broke down a lot, and I think, in total, only about 1300 were built.

A really lovely nurse is observing him, and seeing he was awake leaned really close, and he could see down her scrubs. She said in a very serious tone, "I have to tell you that you might not feel anything from the waste down."

He said, "Okay, can I feel your boobs then?"

----------

The IS-2 had a slower gun, but would put holes in most things it hit. A similar gun was used by the ISU-122 self-propelled tank destroyer.

The Tiger with the 120mm gun that you're thinking of is the Jagdtiger, which was a turretless vehicle on a Tiger chassis. IIRC, they appeared so late in the war that only two companies were fielded. One did alright. The other had tank ace Otto Carius as a member of the company. Based on what he later wrote, it sounds as if the members of the company had come to the conclusion that the war was over (which it pretty much was), and were looking for an excuse to surrender to the Amis without getting into a fight first.

Wait the audit wasn't there to count votes, right? It was there to show fraud and there weren't any ballots thrown out. If they had done the election correctly there are numerous ballots that would never would have been accepted.

403 Feed stores, horse tack stores, any chains such as Tractor Supply, Rural King, Farm and Fleet, in store or online; and iirc it's even on Amazon although I'm not sure I'd want to buy it from them. The "paste" or the "injectable" can both be taken orally. Do *not* get the pour on stuff.

409 Speaking of tanks, now that it is autumn I have started up a model kit of a Panzer II. The tank build should go quickly (Tamiya kit) but the display may take a bit longer as I am not completely sure on the scene it should be in - urban or rural.
Posted by: Mikey NTH - Outrage Outlet Summer Biden Special! Sunblock 10,000 SPF 20% Off! at September 24, 2021 08:53 PM (xRZ17)

Probably the run through the Ardennes and France was the high point for the Panzer II. After that it was too light and undergunned and relegated to lesser roles. So I guess that could be Rural hilly/rough, Rural flat / farmland / road.
