Re: September 11

do you mind removing my post then, it was sort of an acid test anyways. Cheers. During the Bush Sr and B Clinton years, the US presence of HUMINT on large swaths of the globe greatly contracted. My thought is this had much to do with reduced budgets in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, ...

Re: Lucas sells to Disney

^^^^^ Interesting theory but what does it explain? I mean: Is there anything in the Star Wars Universe that is explained by this theory? :wink: Cloning is very difficult to do in SW, thought to be something to do with the Force. The Force itself being a reaction to space-time being disrupted there ...

Re: Lucas sells to Disney

Another theory I heard today was actually pretty cool.... the idea here is, the Star Wars Galaxy is not on a contiguous plain of Space Time..... Each system is connected to the others across a network of wormholes, but each system actually exists in an alternate-dimension of space-time.... In other ...

Re: Lucas sells to Disney

Today I was exposed to a new Star Wars theory..... The "Slutty Leia" theory, lol.... In this theory, --Rey is her kid with Luke, --Kilo Ren her kid with Han, --Finn her kid with Lando, --the pilot guy her kid with one of Luke's wingmen, --And all of these half-siblings even have a half-hut...

Re: Robin Williams, R.I.P.

In Oregon, people are allowed to have medically assisted suicide. There are some limitations... If my memory serves, the Patient must be independently assessed as having 6 months or less to live by a minimum of 3 physicians qualified to make the the relevant assessment. The Pt must also undergo a ps...

Re: Strange Map of the Day

These might be some maps worth considering when developing an East-West connection for an AaA style game: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/de/Map_Trans-Siberian_railway.png http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/commonwealth/soviet_permafrost_84.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Siberi...

Re: Strange Map of the Day

I have been pondering how you would simulate the cold-war/ww3 using AaA as the platform.... My thought was, you could incorperate the existing technologies from one of the existing games (probably 1940 Global) and add a second layer of techs in a simple tech-tree, that includes nukes and the ability...

Re: Image of the Day

http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/C5c.html A fully developed hurricane can release heat energy at a rate of 5 to 20x1013 watts and converts less than 10% of the heat into the mechanical energy of the wind. The heat release is equivalent to a 10-megaton nuclear bomb exploding every 20 minutes. Here...

Re: Meme of the Day

I'm not convinced the West's multi-layered ballistic interception capabilities can deal with vast strategic arsenals of nations like Russia and China. Surely they can deal with rogue states like Iran or North Korea.. but Russia could probably get quite a few through the net, considering the unpredi...

Re: Technology of the Day

jhIOzlvreVs Not bad for an overview but a coagulant is a substance added to destabalize a colloidal suspension (in terms of waste water treatment). This is usually an iron or aluminum salt. The flocculant is the polymer that is then added to cause the flocculant to agglomerate onto the unwanted par...

Re: Meme of the Day

I agree with your assessment for the most part. My original point was that "the Soviets taking back land that was 'stolen' from them" made it easier for the Western Allies (UK/France) to overlook the Soviets' part in the dismemberment (the "Fourth Partition" ) of Poland. Unfortu...

Re: Meme of the Day

...(again Stalin took no heat for invading Poland, somehow)... That's simply because the USSR, in 1939, took back the land that it lost during the Polish-Soviet War (February 1919-March 1921). Of course, it wanted more land (it always did) but, for the time being, it was willing to live with the de...

Re: Next Generation Military System of the Day

It is a moot point as to what its foul weather flight safety record would have been. Not too much came out of the world's many tilt wing/rotor programmes except new knowledge. I would agree. That "new knowledge" includes uncovering the rampant corruption in Marine ranks, as they continue ...

Re: The great Allied evacuations of May-June 1940

They began prosecuting the war in earnest with "The Second Phase Offensive" which began 11.25.50. I have no clue why they weren't pressing their advantage between the 1st and the 25 of November--maybe the "First Phase" was a probe of some sort. I haven't research this specific p...

Re: Next Generation Military System of the Day

The Marines like to send their men into combat zones with failing decades-old personal gear, and almost completely reliant on the Army for support, so that they can go 100 times over-budget on failed experiments like the ospray. The ospray is a sub-par cargo helecopter and a sub-par cargo plane. It ...
