I remember as a kid being taught about how FBI agents were these superhuman geniuses who were completely devoted to protecting the public from the most dangerous criminals. Seeing that guy shoot a civilian by accident and then try and walk away like nothing happened might made me doubt what I was taught a little if I didn't see him dancing first. That guy was wriggling & jiggling all over the place like his legs were made of jello or something, he really is superhuman! He is way above the rest of us for sure

What is the difference between the F-16 Block 70 offered to India and the F-16 that the Pakistani Air Force has?
The Pakistan Air Force have the F-16C/D Block 50/52 jets while Lockheed Martin offered the latest F-16V Block 70 models. These are far more advance models over the Block 50/52. The Pakistan F-16 have the APG-68(V)9 radar, JHMCS, Conformal Fuel Tanks, Link-16 Multifunctional Information Distribution System-Low Volume Terminals, Embedded GPS/Inertial Navigation Systems, APX-113 Advanced Identification Friend or Foe Systems, advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suites: ALQ-211 AIDEW without Digital Radio Frequency Memory (picked); or AN/ALQ-184 Electronic Counter Measures pod without DRFM; or AN/ALQ-131 Electronic Counter Measures pod.

For the Indian proposed Block 70 jets, what is above also add to the following which includes advanced APG-83 AESA radar with a new avionics architecture, and structural upgrades to extend the structural life. Enhanced through an advanced datalink, targeting pod and weapons; precision GPS navigation and the Automatic Ground Collision Avoidance System (Auto GCAS). The APG-83 provides F-16s with 5th Generation fighter radar capabilities by leveraging hardware and software commonality with F-22 and F-35 AESA radars. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-the-F-16-Block-70-offered-to-India-and-the-F-16-that-PAF-has-If-there-is-a-difference-which-one-is-superior

- The F-16V Block 70. The most advanced F-16 in the world was offered to India but lost the bid against Dassault Rafale. Key decision by India was one area where the US couldn't provide, the provision of the aircraft carrying nuclear bombs and missiles. The French even provided the source codes which ups the ante against the F-16.

Here's a Panavia Tornado IDS of the Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force.
The IDS is a swing-wing two-engine fighter/bomber that can be mistaken for an F-15 Eagle. Bummer that the Eagle apparently lost her perfect no combat loss record, but that's what happens when you sell stuff to the Saudis.

>> No. 112183 ID: b93da1
No shit.
The best testament to how the F-15 is a flying brick was when one lost a wing in a mid-air collision and the pilot was able to stabilize her, fly her and land her by going fast on afterburner. Proving the old adage that a brick will fly if you put enough thrust behind it.

Or perhaps this only shows McDonnell Douglas has been selling all their F-15 customers something they didn't need - an extra wing. The second wing should be an option on the deluxe models.

>the right wing of the Eagle was sheared off roughly two feet (60 cm)
Doesn't look anything like 60 cm to me, actually it is closer to two meters. Even if we assume nothing was broken off during stress of colliding with airstrip at full speed, it looks like only 30 % of wing area was lost.

>fly her and land her by going fast on afterburner
Even a schoolboy knows very well that it does not matter how fast the aircraft is flying, what is necessary is aerial stability, so that one side of the aircraft is providing as much lift as the other. Planes do not fly on one wing, no matter how well they are designed.

>>112177 clearly displays a footage of normal two-wing aircraft with one wing crudely painted over on film. A brainless American consumer would see the plane with one wing flying level on the TV screen and therefore will think this is how it happened in real life.

Tendency to exaggerate air superiority by adding improbable, inflated and otherwise falsified data to statistic is common and well-known propaganda tactic since the rise of flight (and especially since WW2), yet every western propagandist will completely deny any falsification and manipulation, no matter how unrealistic it is, how many factors involved, or what other people tell. A lie repeated a million times becomes truth.

No, modern society is sexually repressed, run by uptight prudes and sanctimonious hypocrite perverts.
But this guy in 1852, who "has been accustomed to amuse himself by distending the bladder with air blown through a tube, and then allowing it to escape, and irritating the genitals by various means" and then moved to stuffing a cut off bull penis into his own urethra (after many painful attempts and with commendable perseverance), wherein it became stuck and he went to a horrified doctor to remove it. He then stuck a foot-long lead medical trachea probe into his dick. It pierced his bladder and "He satisfied himself of this fact by blowing through a tube introduced into the urethra, as formerly, when he could feel the air pass through the rent in the bladder into the abdomen." An operation was performed to remove the probe, but the patient died (quite justifiably) later of an infection.
Chalk this up to "another novel instance of the singular instruments which inveterate onanists sometimes resort to, to accomplish titillation."

The murder and dismemberment of Lauren Giddings, which has attracted its share of attention from cable television docudramas in the years since the 2011 slaying, will be the subject of an upcoming episode of “Dateline NBC.”

A TV production crew along with the popular newsmagazine’s correspondent Keith Morrison visited Macon in April and spoke to several locals familiar with the case, including police and prosecutors.

The one-hour program is scheduled to air on NBC the night of June 8.

Giddings was 27 when she was killed in late June of 2011. Her torso was found dumped in a trash bin outside her Georgia Avenue apartment.

"We just don't know why tropical diseases are spreading to cold climates" says CDC.

>The number of people getting diseases transmitted by mosquito, tick and flea bites has more than tripled in the United States in recent years, federal health officials reported on Tuesday. Since 2004, at least nine such diseases have been discovered or newly introduced here.

>The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did not suggest that Americans drop plans for softball games or hammock snoozes. But officials emphasized that it’s increasingly important for everyone — especially children — to be protected from outdoor pests with bug repellent.

>New tickborne diseases like Heartland virus are showing up in the continental United States, even as cases of Lyme disease and other established infections are growing. On island territories like Puerto Rico, the threat is mosquitoes carrying viruses like dengue and Zika.

>Warmer weather is an important cause of the surge, according to the lead author of a study published in the C.D.C.’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

>But the author, Dr. Lyle R. Petersen, the agency’s director of vector-borne diseases, declined to link the increase to the politically fraught issue of climate change, and the report does not mention climate change or global warming. Many other factors are at work, he emphasized, including increased jet travel and a lack of vaccines.

>“The numbers on some of these diseases have gone to astronomical levels,” Dr. Petersen added.

>Based on an analysis of CFC-11’s interactions with other gases, the researchers believe the source is in eastern Asia—but that’s as narrow as the search beacon can go. Strahan hopes the new results might persuade NASA to conduct an aircraft mission that flies over the region, “because we can go and measure the stuff in the atmosphere and see if there are higher levels [of CFC-11].”

Aside from he actual topic, this article comes conveniently after start of China-US trade negotiations and of course adds to their idiotically straight force approach by US side ("surrender to our demands or else").

>That’s not to say there’s a country out there that’s going out of its way to flout the Montreal Protocol. According to Zaelke, the treaty has always worked with a “get well” approach: if a country is non-compliant, then the treaty’s leaders work aggressively with that state’s leaders to return compliance. If a country cannot or refuses to return to compliance, harsh trade sanctions are the next step. But those punitive measures have never been necessary before.

>new results might persuade NASA to conduct an aircraft mission that flies over the region

Implied intervention of sovereign airspace without any hint of cooperation. Naturally.

But then I remembered something else - what Montreal protocol really is. There's a lot of interesting topics, but it is interesting that there's literally no science whatsoever involved in the project itself since the beginning of the agreement. No progress is made. No results are announced. If you think the rest of "ecological" community is off much better, it is probably an illusion, supported by massive amount of repetitive publications.

Siberia literally exploding as permafrost melts and releases methane.
>Startling details have emerged of last week's methane gas blowout on an Arctic riverbank: a sudden and deafening bang from a large explosion of the ground near a reindeer encampment, fire shooting into the sky and raging for several minutes from the eruption, huge chunks of charred permafrost blown out of the ground, and a deep, eerie crater forming, some 50 metres deep which immediately filled with water.

>Reindeer and dogs fled in fright. Sand and grass was blackened by the intense heat of the eruption which was described as 'a flame of fire and then a rising pillar of smoke'.

>Scientists rushed to the scene on the Yamal Peninsula to examine the site in the immediate aftermath of the explosion, amid expert warnings that many can be expected as a warming climate leads to thawing permafrost and the release of potent methane gas which has lain frozen under the surface for thousands of years.

>The ground is 'swelling' at more than 700 sites on Yamal - known to locals as 'the end of the world' - have been identified as potential explosion sites, but these are seen as the tip of an iceberg.

>Many are hillocks or knolls, some are pingos.


>A new theory also surmises that human exploitation of natural gas resources on the Yamal peninsula has led to the forming of toxic pockets which then explode, forming funnels or craters.

>While most of the planet went through periods of cooling and warming over the past 200,000 years, the climate history of Siberia is vastly unknown.

>But according to Murton, the last time Siberia saw this kind of slumping occur was around 10,000 years ago, as Earth transitioned out of its last Ice Age.

>And today greenhouse gas levels in our atmosphere are much higher than they were back then - we've exceeded 400 parts per million CO2, compared to 280 parts per million when the last Ice Age ended.

So basically scientists say they know nothing of Siberia climate, so it is perfectly safe to say anything.

  How many rounds fired does it take to melt the barrel on an M16?
Recently, New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate Pat Davis (a former cop) bluntly declares "Fuck the NRA" in a new campaign ad, knowing that political ads on Arizona TV can't be censored that gave him the opportunity to legally drop the F-bomb on air. Fox News host Tucker Carlson (patrician pundit and heir to the Swanson frozen-food fortune) invited him on his show and completely lost his mind during this interview while he was screeching that a bump-stock equipped AR-15 can't possibly fire at 150 rounds in 15 seconds because it "would instantly melt the barrel" so it's impossible.

150 rounds in 15 seconds is 600 rounds per minute. The M16 assault rifle (the military rifle that the civilian semi-auto AR-15 is based upon) has a rate of fire of 700 to 950 rounds per minute (cyclic sustained fire). So this bump-stock equipped AR-15 fires at a much lower rate than the M16. And yes, there are 150-round magazines for the AR-15 (they cost a fortune, though; around $450).

Tuesday night, I'm sitting at the lounge, drinking some apple jack I brought in, and smoking Rocky Patel's The Edge. It was a birthday gift from a friend back in Oklahoma; I visited earlier this month. I sent him this picture. My message prompted a phone call from him, and we got to talking. He let me know I always have a job if I come back home, as he often does. Good guy. He's a former marine. We talked about his business, what we've been up to, what color crayons taste the best, and we got on the topic of military service. He said he doesn't regret a thing. We talked about my flirting with the army, my cardiac diagnosis, how I feel about it all. He asked me to try again. Really try. Get in shape, get medical documentation, haggle on an enlistment contract, talk to, pester, brow beat, bully, and beg any army recruiter I can. Really, really fucking try. He told me one day he's going to be 65, sitting on his porch with a glass of Ardbeg single malt, looking back and saying "I don't regret a thing." What will I be saying? My cigar was smoked up (notes of leather, pine, and white pepper), my brandy was gone, and when I hung up, I saw that an hour and a half had passed.

I got a doctor's appointment scheduled for next month.

Alcoholic Parent Easy To Shop For
SIESTA KEY, FL—Saying that it was simple and straightforward to locate a gift that their mother would enjoy, the children of alcoholic Alison Cassidy confirmed Friday that she was pretty easy to shop for. “It’s cool that we don’t have to get stressed out running around to a bunch of different shops when we can just duck into the liquor store and arrive at her house with the perfect present,” said Lance Cassidy, 24, telling reporters that he knew his mother would love anything he picked out with an ABV of 20 percent or higher. “Of course, all of us kids try and find some special booze that she has an emotional connection to, but at the end of the day, I know she’d be just as happy with a huge plastic bottle of Popov as some finely aged small-batch bourbon as long as it came from us and will get her absolutely shitfaced.” Cassidy added that he and his siblings faced significantly greater challenges shopping for their father who almost always exchanged whatever they gave him for cash to feed his gambling addiction. https://www.theonion.com/alcoholic-parent-easy-to-shop-for-1825963285

Maybe the Polish Monster energy drink has more Satan in it?
Woman says why she believes Monster Energy drinks are from Satan - Daily Mail https://youtu.be/TjB3dO6hVwc
A BMX champion has dropped Monster Energy as his sponsors because, he says, their logo and advertising are unchristian. Two-time X-Games gold medalist and newly minted Mormon Colton Satterfield (pictured left and right) announced last week that he was ditching Monster Energy drink. 'The decision was not a light one by any means,' he said in a statement. 'I regret something seemingly so small, to some, as logos and various marketing, has to divide us; but I know it is the correct decision for me.' It's unclear what disturbed him about the logo (inset), but some Christian conspiracy theorists say that the claw mark symbol represents the Hebrew letter 'vav' three times. Since 'vav' means six, the logo theoretically spells '666' - the number of Satan.

New Monster Energy Defibrillator Touts 1,200 Volts Delivered Straight To Heart
CORONA, CA—Boasting that their edgy new product was intended “solely for hardcore adrenaline junkies who want to grab life by the balls,” Monster Energy unveiled Friday their new defibrillator, a black-and-acid-green portable recreational unit they claim is capable of delivering 1,200 volts straight to the heart. “This is a product meant for the active consumer who starts their workday, their night out, and their weekend like goddamn Frankenstein,” Monster CEO Rodney Sacks said in an introductory video, which also claimed that each 50-amp serving packs enough current to “unleash the beast” and permanently damage the central nervous systems of poseurs. “Slap our Monster-brand saline electrode gel on the pads, slap the pads on your chest, and slap your heart across its bitch face. Whether you’re at work, the gym, or the club, the Monster Defibrillator only needs 10 milliseconds to make you feel like Genghis Khan fucking a yeti. For that extra kick, mix with vodka.” At press time, specialists at Corona Medical Center said Sacks was expected to recover completely from the extensive arc burns to his organs and spinal column. https://www.theonion.com/new-monster-energy-defibrillator-touts-1-200-volts-deli-1825951753
