That’s right: America needs Díck Cheney. Now more than ever.

20141124 16:36 3dc badanov and Pappy - check gmail.
20141124 16:29 3dc Modifications made to the NK-33 to put it in the Antares. These were prior to the explosion. http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=35950.0;attach=621850
20141124 16:25 badanov The Red Army right on up 'til the 1950s used the term commissar, political officer or political instructor for its commissars.

The term zampolit was coined after the 1950s.

Just some useless background information...
20141124 16:16 Pappy From what I can see of the list of SecDef candidates, they didn't list any of the "policy people" the White House inserted into the Pentagon to play KGB-political-officer.
20141124 15:59 badanov Decision to be announced at 2000 hrs EDT.
20141124 15:21 badanov Ferguson announcement this afternoon.
20141124 12:31 Thing From Snowy Mountain The bad thing about Hagel resigning is, McCain and Boehner would vote to confirm The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs At Midnight if Obama nominated him.
20141124 11:27 49 Pan Ya Skid, under the bus is a great place, all my friends are there.

20141124 08:10 Visitor ***SPAM?*** Can't post to the burg from my smartphone. Marion Barry is pining for the fjords.
20141124 07:10 Shipman Good to see SH back, if only for a day.
20141124 06:53 Shipman I will ask Pappy, if that doesn't work I am going to the juju an.
20141123 18:51 Pappy Yes, it was a pleasant surprise seeing it again.
20141123 17:39 badanov Super Hose is a name I have not seen in a while.
20141123 14:55 Pappy Sorry, Ship. Maybe if'n you ask the spambots to stop...
20141123 12:43 OldSpook Can we add a picture of a Dalek to the stock photos for Robots?

20141122 17:09 badanov Incredible pick by the Hawgz.
20141122 16:43 Dale He's over in Russia at this time. Girlfriend they say. He likes Putin. Then at 62 he's getting back into the ring. Loves the sport. A friend said he had no boxing abilty. He boxed in the early years at same training gyms. Mikey was good friends with John Gotti.My friend did a portrait and gave it to him. If he liked you he was the best of friends.


20141122 16:42 49 Pan So lets say they keep doing these big lead ups to the weekend with the grand jury and then put it off again. Two things happen. Protestors get tired of showing up and protestors, and the organizations that fund them, cant afford to keep going home and coming back. I think this is a tactic from the feds to root out all but the hard core so they can better track them. How many more false starts will happen before Al Sharpton misses a weekend?
20141122 15:26 badanov They're saying Officer Wilson will be no billed. The grand jury left without making a decision. It is up to the prosecutor to either convene a new grand jury, or dr0p the ca5e altogether.
20141122 14:38 Thing From Snowy Mountain Why, I remember when FDR had to deliver it on Television for the first time... of course, all they had back during the Great Derpression was the big three, so keeping the wingnuts calmed down was a lot easier. [/biden]
20141122 13:43 badanov I did not know that.
20141122 12:52 Shipman State of the .Union for most of our history was a written document delivered to Congress by messenger.
20141122 10:40 Pappy Not inviting him to deliver it in Congress is a start.
20141122 10:20 Thing From Snowy Mountain Pappy, unfortunately they mean some other place than Congress, rather than some other country than the United States.

He should be forced to give the State of the Union speech to his employers, whether in Riyadh or Mexico City or Beijing....
20141121 20:43 Pappy Ace of Spades proposed that the new GOP majority leader force the President to deliver his State of the Union elsewhere besides Congress.

Boehner would never do it.
20141121 09:18 swksvolFF oooff...Heal Well Fred.
20141121 08:51 Dale I understand Darrell Wilson has left the force last night.
20141121 08:48 Dale Fred heal well and fast.
20141121 08:48 Dale Watch this fall apart. O's unintended consequences. Reminds me of Adam and Eve. Eve fell to the beauty, power and promises of satan. Only to have been manipulated into choosing a lie. The work of true con men.
20141121 08:12 3dc Fred - repair well.
20141121 01:09 trailing wife Dear Snowy Thing, you are one of our most restrained posters. If you actually flame someone, it's a certainty that they deserved it.
20141121 00:48 Thing From Snowy Mountain Thanks for letting us know; I hope he gets better soon. In the meantime I'll try to refrain from flaming anyone (if you'll pardon the usenet-ism).
20141120 23:57 OldSpook Best wishes and prayers going out for his recovery. I'll throw in a rosary toward his healing.
20141120 23:19 Gloria Fred will be out for a while he had an accident with a table saw and had surgery tonight to repair damage. Please take care of the burg as he needs a few days to recover and he cannot type anyway.
Thank you.
20141120 23:04 3dc includes the following That five person company, RD Amross, is a joint venture of Russian engine maker NPO Energomash and a U.S. partner, aerospace giant United Technologies. According to internal company documents that lay out the contract, Amross stands to collect $93 million in cost markups under its current multiyear deal to supply the RD-180 rocket engine.
20141120 23:01 3dc Regarding the Russian rocket engines in Atlas, interesting stuff in this article http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=34965.msg1290607#msg1290607
20141120 20:58 OldSpook Time for what used to be called "longhair stuff" well before the time of hippies hijacking the term and inverting its meaning.

The actual performance is allegedly 50 years old soon (1965 recording). Von Karajan at his early best (before he softened his style starting in the 70's), and the Berlin Philharmonic at its finest. This is perhaps the definitive performance of this piece. J. Strauss II: An der schönen blauen Donau, Op.314

As selected by Kubrik for one of the greatest Sci Fi movies ever made. 2001: A Space Odyssey.



This is one of my favorite orchestral pieces and favorite performances of all time. Its the only secular piece of music on my funeral list and it will be the last music heard while my face is still visible in this world.

Enjoy - this is one of the things that reminds me that not all humans are mere animals.

20141119 23:29 Thing From Snowy Mountain Come to think of it, bits look like Mardi Gras.

20141119 10:31 Shipman Snowy as long as you can stagger to the rail on a a bad Sunday morning and hammer down Creole Magix Morningstars you are of the body. The sweat after 3 will wash the sins away as well as most lice. You fur will soften and turn a whiter shade of ecru. You will be a new Thing.mready to roar at fate or take a marginal contract.
20141119 09:48 3dc From NASAspaceflight.com and after the Orbital explosion they are announcing NASA delaying the next SpaceX flight to ISS as NASA scrambles over the manifest to replace what they must.
OK, so L2 has the NET target now looking at the second half of December.

I'm not posting the NET date and back up dates in here (public) just yet as I did ask SpaceX and they said they don't have a firm NET just yet, so the new NETs may still change. SpaceX did say when they know for sure, they'll let us know.

Also remember, December 9 was always a planning date, one that became very much subject to change via the noted impact of NASA working out priority stuff to go uphill, following the loss of Cygnus CRS-3.

I'm posting the above at least, as I know a lot of people are planning on going to the launch and need to be aware if they are booking flights, etc.
20141119 01:35 Skidmark Fred's given the Oclub some more storage space, Ship. No carpet or curtains yet, so you get echos.
