  1. Per Wiki article, I did not know this. Believe or not, there were too many coincidences of Hitler living through events that one must think of demonic favor.
  2. I did not know there were other assassination attempts on Hitler's life? And going a bit off topic, why is it that Communists are not thought of as the same thing as Nazi's. Same results as far as I can tell. Seems like two sides of the same coin to a Mid-Westerner in the U.S.
  3. It is an honest question. Who were/are the Soviet scientists who worked with, what on, and when? This is a privilege not many have been granted.
  4. Any reported problems with Soviet A.P.F.D.S. ammo having problems against N.A.T.O. tanks?
  5. Ex-sailor question, but I presume other N.A.T.O. countries made their own 105mm A.P.F.D.S. ammunition? Did they have this problem?
  6. I can dance without rhythm
  7. Thanks. And I presume engineers are still figuring out which way works best? My very limited understanding is that the middle, non metal layer(s) are meant to disrupt H.E.A.T. flow?
  8. This type of obituary, which our nation if full of but never get mentioned, should be news instead of folks in cinema, etc. https://www.legacy.com/us/obituaries/thestarpress/name/marilyn-smith-obituary?id=8482081
  9. I have not made a detailed look, but appears the vast majority of these liberal protesters are young, white women. And not just on the sin of abortion either.
  10. Thank you. I presume the first and last numbers refer to metal armor? And the middle number is some type of?
  11. What does it mean when you say "uses 80+105+20 hull array?"
  12. Is 105mm the largest artillery that horse teams routinely pulled?
  13. Abortion as a means of contraception is a sin.
  14. Some inflation facts not covered -- as usual -- by P.B.S. The first quote is what Robert Reich is implying. "The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” — Vladimir Lenin Robert Reich. “The arithmetic makes it plain that inflation is a far more devastating tax than anything that has been enacted by our legislatures. The inflation tax has a fantastic ability to simply consume capital.” — Warren Buffett. “By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.” — John Maynard Keynes.
  15. Good observation and analysis.
  16. A quick Google search brings up 5 Flirts in the R.N. :0
  17. Yes I did. Did you read the information I provided by people who understand economics? Here is another one relating to the P.B.S. story. https://www.forbes.com/sites/paulroderickgregory/2013/09/10/robert-reichs-f-minus-in-economics-false-facts-false-theories/?sh=2a914aa4507a
  18. Well the R.N. has always had interesting ship names. Those of the Flower and Insect class come to mind.
  19. It can seem like an odd system to those not used to it, but it has a long history in the U.S. and it works for the U.S. I admit to knowing little of European politics, but there are several parties in a European country's final elections. In the U.S., this "several party competition" is resolved in the respective Democrat and Republican primaries, usually in the month of May. Thus the choice of one or the other in a U.S. final election in the month of November.
  20. Yes DDG 81. For Trekkie fans, there are at least of couple of ships named Churchill. I think the Royal Navy should honor the British Army and name a ship the H.M.S. Robert Ross. If it can make it up the Potomac River so much the better
