FDA protocols require that compounds be double blind tested. Topical application of DMSO causes a distinctive garlic-like taste in the mouths of a significant fraction of test subjects, thus breaking the double-blind protocol. No clinical trials, no approval for human use.

Yes, it does. I’ve got it under control with diet. Lots and lots of chicken. Bawck, bawck! 😎.

No beer, no beef, no shellfish, no tuna. Salads galore! My wife and especially my daughter take pains and plan two dinner menus almost every day.

My daughter and I can’t discuss politics so we stay away from that but she does take great care of her Mom and Pop.

Fingerprints and dna test so we can be sure of getting the genuine article.

I worked for AT&T for twenty years. They are absolutely in bed with the three-letter-agencies.

Remember, you can’t spell “funeral” without “fun”…

He’s not the Pope. Members of the Society of Jesus are required, by the rules of their order, to eschew all positions and orders of elevation in the church, not Monsignor, Bishop, Cardinal or Pope. He is an oath-breaking apostate and heretic.

I started up about 1972, not many friends to lose and they all think I’m crazy anyway.

EMALS for the win.

The thrust of the EMALS can be modulated during the stroke to accelerate the aircraft gradually and apply the thrust throughout the catapult’s travel. This force profile is much less damaging to the airframes during launch. The use of electricity also reduces the chances of a “cold cat shot” where the energy applied is reduced by the loss of steam pressure.

Tests like this have been done since the British invented the catapult take-off around the end of WW II.

At the other end of the ship is also another new technology, the Advanced Arresting Gear, that uses water braking and electric motors to stop the aircraft.

They actually have to serve six years.

Of course, that’s so much better than my twenty years in the phone company where I got what I saved plus a small match. Not a hint of a pension.

They’re parasites on the body politic of the nation.

Starbucks coffee is over-roasted crap. I’ve had exactly one cup of it, years ago. It tasted like burned rubber. It’s a hard pass for me.

State Law Enforcement Division.

I’m no big fan of cops in BDUs, they should be in blue, brown or tan uniforms or plain clothes. They can play dress-up when they actually have to do a dynamic entry and then out of their play clothes when it’s over.

Way too many of them are corrupt and the rest are tainted by allowing the bad ones to get away with it.

Nah, I’ve seen Charles for the faggot he is since the early ‘70s. His momma bought him an Aston-Martin back then, probably hoping he’d kill himself in it. I think he’s the reason she hung on so long, she knew him for what he is.
I wonder about the anti-Prince William hate though. He seems to not be such an asshole.
They can all go to hell as far as I’m concerned; my people refer to their flag as “the butcher’s apron”…

We leave a bit of candy for the trash collectors and the letter carrier. Both have been effusive in their thanks.
Long ago, my mother was a HR executive and she taught me that if you take care of the people at the bottom, they will remember it when it’s “go time”.

The government does not have rights, it only has the powers that we the people allow it to have. The Constitution enumerates those powers and enumerates SOME of our rights. The Ninth and Tenth amendments protect our unenumerated rights from the government.

The Bosnians tracked and shot down an F-117 stealth fighter by analyzing cell phone tower RF propagation. Their air defense radar couldn’t achieve a target lock but they put up a barrage and got a hit.
It may be likely that obsolete, relatively long wavelength radar could track stealth aircraft.
