    "Neither copied nor stolen"

    Stealth technology was developed for the U.S. military in the '70s and is a combination of structural design and anti-reflective coatings. ALL stealth today are copies of this U.S. developed technology.

    Entombimg is NOT a permanent solution. The concert at Chernoble is decaying and the Plutonium pool is still at the bottom of the reactor. They are working to remove the fuel rods from Fukushima but there is still no progress on removing the molten Plutonium.

    @Raymond Chuang:

    Exactly, thus the "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot". Mitsubishi also did not have self-sealing fuel tanks (to lighten the wing load and make if more maneuverable but easier to shoot down). Combined with the lack of amour around the pilot led to a devastation loss of experienced pilots.

    Zero fighters were considered one of the most capable long-range fighter planes in World War II, rivaling the British Spitfire.

    Untrue, the Spitfire had a range of only about 750 km whereas the Zero had a range of about 2300 km.

    I think there should be one permanent host cite on each continent and they should rotate so that each city hosts the Olympics once every 20 years. On the off years they can host Regional Games (like the Asian Games), World Cups, various championships, and other local major sporting events as well as concerts, exhibitions, festivals &etc. With Athlete and team housing and facilities they would be ideal to handle evacuees in cases of natural disasters.

    Great choice of Stallone for best supporting actor. His best Rocky role yet. CREED is of course set up for the sequel.

    At 4.3% it is not the most popular by consensus, with "explosion" (sans the editorial addition of reference to explosion buying) and "war" coming in second and third I would think the national sentiment is exactly the opposite of what the government is trying to push on people.

    Cannot blame Taylor for this, her production company is at fault. Ms Swift is one of the biggest philanthropists around and I wouldn't be surprised if she donates a ton of money to their cause after this fax past.

    War is rarely about fighting in defense of one's country, war is more often than not about expanding the territory and/or wealth of those who run countries.

    Which means that the countries that are protecting their territory from being expanded into are fighting in defense of their country.

    1000 people is a very small sample.

    I wonder what the results would be if you asked if they would be willing to fight for the lives, freedom and security of themselves and their families?

    Please note that the offshore capture and storage method is exactly how I described in my post 2 days ago (including absorbing into rock, which somebody phoo-phooed). The project I was involved with before Snovit CO2 Solutions as the Dolwin 1 offshore wind turbine project in the North Sea off Germany. There were numerous environmental issues with that project, so to think that wind farms are the answer to all our problems is mistaken. We will need fossil fuels for the foreseeable future. The point is that we need to use many different energy production sources as well as reducing the impact each has on the environment.

    Not a new idea. I just came off a project in Norway (Snovit CO2 Solutions) where we are doing the same thing with CO2 associated with processing natural gas. The CO2 will eventually be absorbed by the rock and sea water.

    Japanese prosecutors are notorious for suppressing evidence that undermines their case. I remember a famous case in which a conviction was overturned because it was found years later that the convicted had a different blood type than the actual perpetrator and the prosecutors knew this from the beginning.

    gmat441 is correct about the SS Dick Lykes, it was owned by The Lykes Bros. Steamship Line of New Orleans. All Lykes Bros. ships are named after a member of the Lykes family.

    During WWII and for a while thereafter carriers were named after famous battles (i.e. Yorktown, Ticonderoga, Midway).
