I would say you just lost.

Is that picture photoshopped? Because the blur makes it seem like he's hauling ass at around 40-50mph.

He is, top speed 67kmh iirc.

This poster dates to early in the war. A farmer smashes the blockade. The Allied blockade of Germany during World War I had seriously hurt the war effort. The poster claims that Germany’s food supply is secure in the new war. The text: “Farmer! You are a soldier in the battle of production.” Courtesy of Dr. Robert D. Brooks.

What i like is how everyone in europe and america can just sit here in the safety of their homes and sit on their ivory towers and judge them. Israel has been in an almost constant state of war for quite some time now. Its a completely different world over there and until you have been there i dont think you can truly pass any judgment on the situation.

Some of the cost will be recouped through the business opportunities our industry will recieve. Also when i comes to things like fighters i don't think you can cheap out and buy the less expensive but less capable choice. Put a eurofighter up against a F-35 and your going to take some heavy losses.

IMO you cant compare the european fighters to american ones. The f35 is much more advanced then the euro offerings. I would rather keep the CF-18s then buy typhoon or gripen.

Canada recently bought some new F-35s, and im curious on peoples opinion of the aircraft.
Waste of money? Or valuable purchase?

A McDonnell-Douglas CF-18 fighter aircraft during a test of the Canadian-made CRV-7 unguided air-to-ground missile by the Aerospace Engineering and Test Establishment in 1985. The CF-18 came into Canadian Forces service in 1982. (DND, 85-921)

The CRV7 is a 2.75 inch (70 mm) folding-fin ground attack rocket produced by Bristol Aerospace in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When it was first introduced in the early 1970s it was the highest performing 2.75 inch rocket (the standard US size) in the world, the first with enough energy to penetrate standard Warsaw Pact aircraft hangars. The CRV7 remains the most powerful rocket to this day, and has slowly become the de-facto  standard for Western-aligned forces, at least outside the United States.

getting nostalgic again, this time with the ultimate summer-love song for a 14-year old

as a matter of fact, it is from 2004 when I was 14 too :)

(ignore the video, or don't. I think it is hilarious, laughed so loud when I first saw it. Simply 'cause it was the last thing I had expected)

Good sir i raise you a Sublime

I'm resurrecting this thread again, because Dale Peterson has released another ad:


Man with weird accent, wielding a gun, knee propped up on a barrel of hay?, dumb american demeanor, shooting rifle for no real reason, really dumb looking hat.

the sad thing is he did this to appeal to americans so he could get more popular - which means a lot of americans are like this. lord help us all.

Stereotype much? :p
