  1. A plane has lost 3 engines and is going down, the Captain comes on the PA and announces they have jettisoned all the luggage and fuel they can, but still overweight and going down, they need 5 volunteers to sacrifice themselves to save all on board. Immediately the Englishmen gets up and says: Had a good life, time to do the right thing, remember me old Chaps, cheerio ... and jumps out the plane. The Welshman gets up and says: ... well no one could actually understand him .... and jumps out the plane. The Hungarian gets up and says: Once we were the greatest, the Empire of Europe ...
  2. My Wife walks all over her Male Lawyer counterparts for earnings, she applies herself and works damn hard. She happens to own the Law Firm as well, that helps, but there's an equal amount of male and female Lawyers in the firm, not planned that way, but that's the way it is. They all have the same rates and commissions offered to them, the males earn more because they work harder and longer hours, more willing to travel, while the female Lawyers go home to their children and other social activities more often. Just facts. Julia Gillard was the youngest Partner ever in the Law Firm she wor
  3. From first hand personal experience, absolutely agree with this. From second hand experience living 15 years in a lower social economic area, i.e. Logan City, and seeing what was bestowed on other males, I absolutely agree with this. Don't get me wrong, male induced violence certainly higher than female induced, but nothing as high as "95%". Face facts, a woman punches a man, not much is said or done, a man punches a woman and it becomes one of the 95%.
  4. ... I'm still waiting for the joke ....
  5. This is absolute fact. Men grow up knowing when they cross the line, a smack in the mouth is a distinct possibility, many Women aren't aware of where that line is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIOY2ezMy9A
  6. well i'm certainly glad i have my Kodac film developing skills for when I finish up in China after all these years here and settle back iin Oz
  7. Guys I have posted this before somewhere, I self cured all my prostate problems in my early 40s purely by accident, self medicating for a non-associated reason, it works for a number of people I have shared it with. Vitamin Bs in a specific blend. 100 mgs each of VB1, VB2, VB6 200 mgs (i.e. double) VB12. Take it daily, not late in the afternoon or evening because it is also quite an energy kick and you won't sleep. Or take it just as you're going to sleep. 1 to 3 months you will notice a big difference. What have you got to lose, VB won't hurt you, and you will get that energy
  8. one thing i know from wrecking engines intentionally, if you are ever in a demolition derby, used to be populat on Speedway nights, have a rope tied to one of your pre loosened radiator hoses. A main goal in the derbies is to wreck your competitors radiator causing them to overheat and die. If you get hit and lose all your water, pull the hose off with the rope so you will pump cool air instead, your engine will last longer. I should write a book ....
  9. have blown up a few old engines on the past, never less than about 10 minutes with no oil or water, and Subaru EA81s just keep going for at least 20 theres a few Youtube vids around, people are always surprised how long they last.
  10. I admit to racially profiling and thinking 'Some stupid American', surprised to find Belgium.
  11. My 2nd daughter used to drag her tail around for damn near 2 years, but eventually she learned to walk like a normal person. I have no intention of going backwards in design to pacify some old gits who think radials spitting hot oil into their leather goggles while they're out on the wing adjusting the fuel mixture mid-flight romanticizing about the time they fought off 6 machine gun wielding Germans armed only with a pen-knife and a toothbrush is how flying should be. I'm not trying to be obtuse when I say I flat out don't care. I'm trying to make a cheap, functional aircraf
  12. ... and you would be correct, same as Sonex do their rudders, and same as thousands of ailerons are done. ... or I did a "mother of all f**kups" while measuring .... You can see the hinges on this side (right side) and the horn sticking out further, now that the rudder is sort of finally fitted, I think ... maybe ... I probably should clean all my dirty paw prints off before I take pictures. The rudder isn't an odd shape, it's sitting 30 degrees to the left here .. I also redesigned the aileron balance arm gussets, nicer looking and stronger design, not that you'll see them u
  13. Umm, press the button in the middle of the steering wheel? Well I am a Western man in Asia.
  14. .. and today made the rudder horn. You will understand it better when I put it all together tomorrow.
  15. I have quite a pile of aluminium scrap built up now as I rapidly learn the new CNC Router, almost 3 weeks now. But pleased to say, my understanding for what I want it to do, though still not second nature, is getting pretty good, and today I finally achieved parts, the rudder in this case, to my standard of quality and precision. It's almost dead flat on both surfaces and the rivets just fall into the perfectly matched holes. So now to start moving forward again!
  16. Issue is that a number of Politicians are on the bandwagon to get those vile votes.
  17. Something sensible for a change from the vile around at the moment surrounding the virus. Of course I don't agree with the "go vegan" overtones, but the rest is welcome relief from all the vile on the Internet currently.
  18. Yay, after learning some (lots to go) and a bit of testing, my first actual real part made. It's actually the rudder which I'm doing again, because I am very unsatisfied at the other one I did by hand with it not being dead smooth. It only takes a millimeter here and there, and it looks amateurish. The reason for CNC is the accuracy with considerable ease, that humans can rarely achieve.
  19. Tens of millions of taxis, buses and private work mini vans in China are on CNG. I would say 1 in 3 Servos are CNG here
  20. I can't remember the exact numbers, but a lot of the coal we export is hard coking coal for steel making, not going to be hurt as much as you might think.
  21. set yourself small targets to acheive and you feel like you have succeeded with them each time. Do not go to the next target until you are willing and prepared to see it through. Do not start a target late Sunday if you cant finish it because you have towork through the week, leave to start the next Fri evening or Sat morning knowing you can finish that task over the weekend.
  22. As a breaker of 4 tools over the last 2 days, and one serious crash when over running the Y axis (even bent the front facia plate), I can understand that. Mind you I was a bit pizzed that the machine didn't arrive calibrated, I sent it 1000mm up the Y axis but it only traveled 520mm, where I left it for a moment while I rang the company, they explained to me where to change the software calibration, traveled and measured the X axis which was now fine, then brain-dead me sent the Y back to zero by telling it to travel a -1000mm back to home ....... ..... but it was only 520mm from home
