French cops claimed to hold secret, illegal gypsy database

All the EU countries should deport criminal non-nationals.

Undiplomatic tweet from French diplomats


if you come t a country obay its laws.

My view is that is you move to another country you must obay its laws,

This is totaly regardless or where you come from , your race , sexual orientation ect.

If you deside you do not want to obay those laws then you should leave and if you have broken those laws you should be evicted.

Robocopter combat cargo skyhook chosen by US forces



one reason is to ballance out the weight of the part of the heli in front of the rotor axle ; most of that weigth would be the pilot ect.

Another is that the tail helps to act as "Weather vane" ; keeping the tail in the back (and nose to the front) making forward fligth eazier on the pilot.

If you check there are rotorcraft that are designed as unmanned aircraft and they lack a tail.

Energy-saving LEDs 'will not save energy', say boffins


other savings

i did not take the cost of reduced meaintenance in account , the reduced production cost / transport cost as a result of the longer lifespan of led.

Also the heating argument is only valid if the house is electric heated; if its heated by another source it will be cheaper then electric and as a result the few watt of heat not produced by the light will be cheaper.

Also i personally prefer to sleep in the dark so switch off lighting in my bedroom ect.

For people who are to lazy to switch light on and off there are the sensors that can do that for them and they are also getting far cheaper so that could be an aditional saving.

Since led works on direct current it becomes far more practical to have a solar panel/ storage battery setup to take care fo the ligths of a building.

Its true led ligths will "not save the earth" all by themselfs but only narrow minded people think there is a single silver bullit for all problems combined..

PA school district avoids charges over webcam spy scandal

Black Helicopters

what thise guys did is no diferent of the "normal" actions of the usa regime so setting a president that it is iligal would complicate there own spying on people.

Acrobatic pilot survives loss of wing


other potentional advantage

I asume there is a advantage for the peope on the ground too.

A plane that floats down under a chute is a far smaller danger then a plane that drops out of the sky balistic style.

For example there have been incidents of planes crashing in the public and if a chute equiped plane would come down towards people they would have time to get out of the way.

Also since there is a smalled chance of aditional damage on inpact the risk of fire is lower..

The example of this article did not burst into a ball of flames on "inpact" but the fire probbally started as a result of a broken fuel line near the hot engine and spread more slower giving still enough time for the pilot to exit the plane.

Especialy epoxy using the same techniqes as compesite parts (wich it will be anyway) you end up with a (natural) carbon fibre part that might not be as strong as the more commonly used one but still exeeds the requirements for this project.

So what are the rules of what % of the structure is allouwed to be adhesive?

female atentionseekers

Why is it that most times when females want media atention they use nudety?

Is this to show this is the only way they can think of instead of creative ways to focus atention on them?

Do females really need to confirm again there are only usefull as decoration/ lust objects?

Paris... speaks for itself.

Air France offers two-seat deal for fatties

invade your space

So you are willing to open up your house to provide room?

Why would you have to allouw others the use of the room you payed for?

They don't fit so they are not save.

Flying is not a RIGHT its a privilege.


why not ban them outright?

if they don't fit the seats then they also do not evacuate in the required 90 sec so they pose a danger to the others.

I think these people should be labled "passive terrorists" since that is what they do ; they are a danger.
