Exactly. That’s why China is not going anywhere. They were relatively early adopters, and they’ll stay in because it is good for them.

Re: Thought to Ponder with a Few Idle Minutes

So how exactly does a barrel determine the accuracy of the bullet. If someone says the barrel is innacurate how does that cause the bullet to vear off track? Is it the rifling? Gas? Imperfection in the bullet? Shooter? I’m sure all of that comes into play but I’m just curious. The barrel isn’t the ...

Re: Crypto-currencies

Chinese New Year. It’s already on the way back up. Apparently, it does this every year at this time. I’ve made three purchases of Etherium so far: 1. $900 on 12/14, at $712/Eth. I am still ahead $347 on that purchase at this moment. 2. $100 on 12/22, at $559/Eth. I am still ahead $75 on that purcha...

Re: California(s)

i.m not sure about this given that Contra Costa County is in the new state. CCC is NOT conservative. I lived there for 8 years from 1995 to 2003. It wants to be just like San Francisco. I was surprised to see that as well. Although I think you could separate west county vs east county by drawing th...

I’m saying the OLD state (everything outside of the “new” state) would be more conservative.

Re: California(s)

Another bonus, “Old” California is more conservative leaning than liberal. When it is its own state, those electoral votes will go for the more conservative presidential candidate. This will have the effect of splitting “now” California’s influence in both Congress and the electoral college. That ca...

Re: California(s)

This plan would have a much better chance of being approved than others, as it creates an enclave of almost universally like minded people. Three interesting outcomes which don’t seem to be mentioned anywhere: (1) “New California” would hold onto most of California’s industrial base AND petroleum re...

Re: .45 Auto Failure to Stop with Head Shot

No that is impossible...everybody shot with a .45 erupts like a volcano regardless of where they are hit :mad5 There have been multiple cases of bullets ricocheting off of foreheads, cheekbones, even teeth, especially with round nose lead or FMJ ammunition. One guy back in the day tried to commit s...

Even pilots take control away from the autopilot when complex evolutions are required.

Re: Hawaii: False alarm on missile strike was Trumps's fault

Makes sense. Makes total sense. It's all Trump's fault. It's always his fault. Obama Akbar. On a serious note, I wonder if anyone ever questioned how the system works. Did the console controlled by the fat fingered employee talk back to the missile warning system, NORAD computers, and thus POTUS wh...
