Re: More oppression on other forums

Ted, it wasn't "just" the shabby treatment, but the fact that the place has gone through the same cycle time and time and time again. I just decided I was sick of that particular ride and moved on. "SSDD" doesn't do that stinkhole justice. One day I just "snapped" and said "enough is enough", checke...

Re: More oppression on other forums

I admire George's rocket talents, BUT, he's a grade-A KNOB and whiny little A-hole judging by his behavior on the rocket forums. He struts around quoting rules like he's some kind of forum pope and LOOKING for ANYTHING that "offends" him, and then makes a full-on federal case out of it, personally m...

Re: More oppression on other forums

Yorf is handled pretty well. What other forum is there? I do miss RP and Darrell. Agree. I hate that the "only person who's ever been banned" on YORF was someone who shouldn't have been, IMHO. If JD was gonna be banned, PO should have been too. He was right there stirring the pot just as much if no...

Re: third party gimmick thought

No matter who wins this fall, the bill for 8 years of unchecked 0bama will be coming due by 2018 at the latest. Hilliary will merely do a Maduro and double down on the really stupid. Trump might work with the rest and force down the bitter medicine that will be necessary. That medicine will have to...

Re: 10 Most Anticipated Science Fiction Movies of 2016

Yeah kinda looking forward to the SW 'spinoff' movies. Wasn't terribly impressed with the new SW movie, hoping the spinoffs will be better. Don't think I'm gonna waste money on the next "Trek" film. The first one was bad enough, the last one was just awful. Think I'll just wait for it on Netflix-- s...

Re: And so it begins.....

Pic above pretty much sums it up. I'm fully convinced this country is going straight to hell sooner rather than later, and the current monkey show amongst the nutjob candidates is just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Doesn't make a hoot in hell's difference which one gets elected-- this coun...

Re: 10 Most Anticipated Science Fiction Movies of 2016

I saw a trailer for a new X Men today that's due out soon. It looked interesting. If you like that sort of thing... JAFCBM-- Just Another *oops you said word #3 Comic Book Movie, IMHO... Sick and tired of stupid comic book movies, myself. More power to the ones that like them... Later! OL J R :)

Re: Old Launch Photos

Honestly I'd get a top-end keyfob cam and supplies to make a faux payload section for it to look like an Oracle before I wasted that kind of money on what was a crummy camera with no sound anyway. Plus, as already mentioned, whether it will even work with a "modern" computer is a whole other issue. ...

Re: $6.3 Billion in 1,308 Secretive EPA ‘Slush Funds’

EPA is a rogue agency... plain and simple. They were caught recently lobbying for WOTUS... (waters of the US, a stupid reg that will hamstring 9/10 of the farmers in this country in one way or another). Lobbying is strictly forbidden by gubmint agencies. But since when does that stop them?? Later! O...
