There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

That's some Mad Max stuff right there.

Don't know why we went to internal combustion engines. High pressure steam vessels in trucks seems totally safe.

I'm with Dart. Why did we go to internal combustion when that seems so much more efficient and convenient.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Modern trucks are just too quiet! Sometimes I'm five miles away from one and can't hear it! It's just madness!
