He's dead.

I had the best dog in the world. Some of you will dispute that because you love your own dog, but really, I’ve had several dogs, and Ricky was the most affection, deepest thinking dog I’ve ever had. He would get in trouble occasionally. Only a short time after he began living with us, he was attacke...

Re: Need Numbers

How about the numbers in Conversion of units (Wikipedia) . Or you could google "useful constants" but most of the results are in specialized fields. Assuming you're mostly wanting to exercise your memory? Metric to British (American) are some good ones. You never know when the number of feet to a m...

I'm in the process of learning the Major Memory System . It's a method of memorizing number strings by assigning a phonetic sound to the number -> assembling the sounds into nouns, -> and then assembling the nouns into a story, maybe a story of a journey through a path. It works. And I'm now at the ...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

IIRC mid-air breakup of an airframe has happened at least once before due to improper repair following a tail-strike during take off/landing. Air China 611 is the best example of a improper repair of tail-strike damage, but I understood the industry learned from that. It was a spectacular wreck. I'...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

Bombing a plane is hard enough that a former PhD professor at Berkeley, a Harvard graduate known as the Unibomber, et. al., failed; as did Obama mentor William Ayers. Both succeeded at killing prior to going after planes, it just proved a bit more elusive. Ayers may have been able to do "Tens of th...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

How hard can it be? I don't really have much of a comment on this 7K9268 specific crash ; I'm going with the bomb-somehow-on-the-plane theory at this point, but it's not much more than a guess. The destruction took place up-high and quickly, and I don't see shrapnel holes in the wreckage. The plane ...

The idea would be to become a 501(c) organization, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. I'm sure it can be done.
I don't approve of gambling casinos, though. They bilk the poor.

Re: Car-Carrying 2-wheelers with trailer? Or arrangement on

I always find cars giving bikes a ride quite humorous. Why not leave the car at home and ride the bike? If you are asking seriously, the main reason is for breakdowns.
