Nah, these days all they have to do is leak photos of the dictator having sex with a sheep to the internet. No invasion required.
Well, except for North Korea - they don't have the internet...
North Korea. pff they totally have internet, they make all these cheesy mmos, then get americans to pay hundreds of dollars a month in DLC... they've already invaded without us ever knowing it xD
and sex with sheep... dude sheep is so last year, this my friend is the year of the goat... sadly <.<
That just looks awesome...what better way to take us into the future than by the winners of competition...unlike that other loser of competition.
On a serious note though....there are awefull, awefull drivers out there...do you really think giving them the keys to a jet will improve their ability to man a more complex machine. Think 9/11 and it's easy to understand it will never be how it is supposed to be.
I used to believe all that hocus pocus, back in the day when the X Files captured my imagination....Osama Bin Laden, kinda challenged what I believed with regards to top secret military technology....and the current understanding that no one is more special than I am....which is worrying, because I'm very error prone.
If not for the "I don't know" we wouldn't be where we're at technology wise.
xD that is true. Though I doubt the government is hiding anything its the people behind the scenes of our current fumbly government
No way! How awesome. That is awesome. Most fascinating insight. The A12 would've been one heck of an aircraft, was sad to see the SR71 decommisioned. It was a brilliant idea, the skunkworks, to bypass beuracracy with a smaller, more agile team.
One of the reasons that the F35 is so behind was the computerisation of the man machine interface...less switches...but instead a freakin big I pad instead that would crash. Is it even wise to have a touch interface when pulling Gs, when a switch with tactile feedback is ideally suited? Its bad enough with cars...but on fighter jets!
Haha, nevertheless, did I mention how awesome this is? Y'know you're gonna have to track us all down to kill us, now that you've told us...and I am going of the grid and back to the bush....
So you mean to say, there wasn't a program implemented to check how the prototype fared after testing it...they figured out to do this after millions of dollars exploded.
Yeah I researched about the f35 and it was the whole compromise just for the Marines thing that causes all the problems, as well as spreading out the contracts. Its always the case, trying to save money ends up costing more money. I mean which professional actually flips out one of them 10 tools in 1, to save money on tools.
I'll just sit here and wait until the machines can make themselves...then they can show us how to be a better more evolved species, a good thing. Or they might just not bother and just eliminate us, which is probably a good thing also. I think its good that you moved away from the death industry....I couldn't do it, knowing that if just one innocent civilian copped it, I could never look myself in the mirror anymore. The whole A bomb Japan thing, complex as it was, everyone involved in that decision was supposed to resign after the mission was approved, to demonstrate the burden of the beast. That didn't happen.
