India's heavy launch rocket passes flight test

Gearhead

Re: Nobody here but us nitpickers...

I am not a fan of man rated solid fuel rocket engines BUT, a Launch Abort System makes the system MUCH safer. http://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/files/orion_las_fact_sheet.pdf

US lawmaker blames bicycle breath for global warming gas

Gearhead
FAIL

Taxman

I am an American and proud to be so but it is becoming difficult not to be embarrassed to be American.

The caliber of people elected in the US is shameful. What is worse, these idiot elected officials represent the public so what does that make the public. Idiots.

As far as the bicycle tax, this brings to mind a favorite Beatles Tune, Taxman:

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,

If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.

If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,

If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Win 8 haters are just scared of change, say MS bosses

Change

Dear Mr. Balmer,

I am all for change when it is for the better.

Opening up windoz would be a change for the better. I could fix it when it goes belly up like I do Linux.

Now who is afraid of change?

KTM: electric dirt-bike out next year

Gearhead
Pirate

I would buy one of these before........

I would buy one of these before I would buy a 4-stroke.

I watch people kick their 4-strokes for 10 minutes after they have killed the battery. I kick my 1986 Yamaha IT200S 3 times and I am ready to go.

I would miss the sound of my 2-stroke but but if I had to choose between the 4-stroke and the electric, it would be the electric. I can always put a 2-stroke sound track in my iPod.

Tips from the top: cracking Christmas and New-Year books

Thumb Up

Touche

Touche to " The Feynman Lectures on Physics: The Definitive and Extended Edition. " . Feynman was probably the best physics teacher the world has ever seen. His lectures should be required reading for any one in a technical industry and/or anyone interested in physics.
