Don't believe the hype, I went to one for my divorce, he was half cut ran over the half hour and charged me £750 for the privilege.

Then they have the wrong teachers. Those exp are still allowed and I still do them in my classes. (I am the only teacher at the school to have the license to make gunpowder and demo in the lab.)
Copper Oxide and powdered Magnesium is my personal fave, extremely bright flash followed by a Very impressive mushroom cloud.
IIRC one of the sticks DID override the other. The co-pilot was pulling back on the stick the whole way down from 35000+ feet until they nearly hit the sea, but by then it was too late.
Watch 42 minutes in.
No companies collect VAT on behalf of the HMRC, hold it for up to 3 months then hand it over.
Companies will pay HMRC the difference between the VAT claimed on purchases and VAT charged on sales, in other words on how much they have made (if they are a company making VATable products)
Companies will also pay VAT on invoices that they have issued but which have not yet been paid.
The 21g experienced was not the one using the escape tower it was the accident in 1975 when the upper stage fired whilst still attached to the core.
This aborted the flight but as the attitude at the time of abort was pointing earthwards the reentry was "sub optimal".
(Not to mention the 500ft cliff the almost rolled off on landing)
Ahh I remember when I had by mistake vastly overstocked on 1mb sticks which for me at the time was about 500 of them at about £5 each.
I spent a day trying to pass some on as I didn't like to stock more than about a hundred, but got no where.
That night the Kobi earthquake happened and over the next week or so prices rose to about £100 each before I sold.
I was in two minds about whether I should profit from it but in the end sense and the prospect of a nice holiday prevailed.
I did a job for the MOD whilst being employed by a then large defence contractor,
MOD bods insisted on everything in their spec be just so. After looking at their spec for a while I thought you know what they won't want that, they will want this. So wrote the code to do both on the quiet. You could specify which it compiled by setting a SW switch on starting the compile.
A year later there was a collective suckling through teeth, amongst muttering of can't be done and going to cost from our team when the MOD bod changed their mind,
Got quite a bonus on that one.
V2000 machines were the nuts.

Perfect freeze frame
4 hours of each side of the tape.
Shame they were the size of a house and looked like they were hand made inside there were so many "bodge" wires between the huge numbers of daughter boards. With that many bodges they never were going to be reliable.
Bought more than a couple off Comet(?) When they were outing them for a few quid each.
Not only on. Our streets but also in the country side.
What is it with McD customers who happily buy the stinking sh*t, drive 5 miles with it in their cars, park up somewhere nice, eat some of the cr*p and then presumably think you know what this stuff is stinking up my car let's, chuck it in that pretty field.
I mean if they wanted it out of the car just store the rubbish in your exhaust pipes till you get to a bin, they're fecking big enough.
"lessons in leadership at an extraordinary and turbulent time in global affairs"
I presume he is going to talk about how his actions demonstrate how not to lead as it can lead to extraordinary and turbulent times in global affairs.
What an arse. History will not look kindly on the porcine player.
The problem is that in this situation there are no sensors on the Tesla/Volvo etc that can "see" the stationary car, so it will not apply the brakes.
The radar is used to detect other moving objects, not stationary ones. The reason for this is that the radar cannot tell overhead obstacles from those in the road so if it stopped for every stationary object it would be stopping for overhanging trees, overhead street signs etc.
It might be different if they used LIDAR but they don't.
I remember walking along Spurn head* one day when a Lightning went past very close to the spit at really quite high speed.
It was rather loud and very unexpected but what was most impressive was that I swear I looked DOWN into the cockpit.
*Spurn head is a sand spit sticking out miles into the Humber estuary, technically the head is the end of the Spurn. The top of it is between 6-9m above sea level.
