Boulevard Richard Lenoir, Paris; it is absolutely perfect. Nice and wide, tree-lined with mature trees, has a narrow park down the middle that separates each direction of traffic. Lots of fountains in the park. It looks really cool when lit up at night also. is one that is at least 4 lanes wide, wi...Jump to post
Yemen is such a nice place to live ! Can't argue with you, you're too far out there. It's perfectly legal to marry little girls there... Poachers in Kenya are KIA, usually they themselves don't hesitate to kill wildlife defenders, so it's no different from a cop shooting at someone armed and ready t...Jump to post
The authorities told the press that it was an illegal maneuver since the ATR was not certified in the aerobatic category. Therefore they would have a talk with Mr Nielsen. Nielsen told the press that he was sorry that he had done something illegal, but it was no big deal and should be treated as if...Jump to post
I don't pretend to know if glyphosate causes cancer. However I do know it kills a lot of people, by doing what it is supposed to do, which is cleaning metals. Heavy metals which end up in the drinking water of plenty of people and destroys their kidneys.Jump to post
If its even remotely possible to say something positive about this, I bet BBD is anxious to get their hands on the data recorders so they can see exactly how much force the plane can handle - he did a lot of maneuvers you don't put those planes in. I think some of the BBD test pilots have already d...Jump to post
I remember he booted DOS from floppies and loaded some spread sheet (probably VisiCalc) to show us that you could actually do work with it. Booting from floppies is in itself something younger generations wouldn't understand. You have that expensive device and it can't even boot without putting a f...Jump to post

Some of those twitter “reporters” are saying that the majestic software needs to be removed and banned because of this

This shit should be completely banned.
I still cannot get my head around the fact that 19 people were allowed to board what is essentially a proving flight on a 65yo Convair... I am a BIG enthusiast. Would I board a 65yo CV340 on a "PROVING FLIGHT"??? NO way!!!! I would in a heart beat! I would jump at the opportunity with any...Jump to post
SpaceX already has future transportation on lockdown with the BFR. Not long now and we'll have 1x daily DXB-IAH, JFK-SYD, SFO-JNB shuttles less than 1 hr in duration carrying a payload roughly 1.5x that of an A380. What do you mean by "not long" ? First, SpaceX has to make a man-rated veh...Jump to post
I read that Boeing expects that it will be many years before its hypersonic plane is ready for commercial service, so I wouldn't (at least personally) expect anything of the sort any time soon. I do know, however, that private supersonic jets are hitting the market fairly soon... Depends what you m...Jump to post
Many of his supporters have seen an improvement in their livelihoods over the years, but might not be so well off they would hold foreign currency. Now if there is an economic crisis, they'll be the hardest hit, too. Erdogan has so much power that if he wants to keep it nothing can stop him, so inde...Jump to post
Turkey has also soured relations with the EU recently. It's a slippery slope to nowhere. I would suspect travelers would seek connections in more stable ME hubs (UAE especially).

This could hurt. Let's hope it will diminish the personality cult around Erdogan.
Yeah they're pissed of as a result, we agree on that. In France MSM won't talk about this as average French people are financially illiterate and wouldn't understand. Business TV channels talk about it. Here the incentive to buy an electric car is 6000€ and there is no limit to the number of cars th...Jump to post
Israel just made it official that it is now a Jewish theocracy and an apartheid state, where oppressing palestinians is perfectly legal and encouraged. Explain the good in that. You won't make me defend that law. You also won't gain any credibility by calling it an apartheid law. It is an unnecessa...Jump to post

Taxpayers money must be used for public services. Not to finance private interests or companies like FR who don’t create local obs.

Also, I have to say I am appalled at all the spoiled European brats in this thread who honestly seem to believe that Israel is a bad actor and big bully and Iran is just their victim.

To me, these recent events are a microcosm of the changing dynamics of Mainland/Taiwan relationship. Mainland China has marched on while Taiwan has stagnated. Their economic power and influence are no longer comparable and the Mainland is increasingly making this advantage count. I can only see thi...Jump to post
What I don't understand is if European countries like France, the UK or Germany realy want to protect relations with Iran, why don't they save existing business deals with G to G contracts with Iran. That would protect all involved companies from US sanctions behind the national sovereignty of thei...Jump to post
China has a plan, and that plan doesn't involve trading with the US over losing its sovereignty. China will not trade with Iran to spite the US, but they will do it in spite of the US. As for bombing Iran, that's a sure way to strengthen the Iranian leadership. A bit like the Bay of Pigs and Fidel C...Jump to post

Europe can still not sell any more Airbus jets to Iran, due to the US parts involved.. Is it so hard for Europe to make these parts themselves ? Depends what you mean by hard.
