“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

It's beyond beautiful. Plus it's very very round.

Looks more like a white planet than a blue planet.


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.

Not true! It's about 42km (or 0.3%) wider than it is high.

Coolest thing I've seen in this thread except the OP, and I am not religious.

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.

I think the first time I saw this was on a black and white television.

Yep we didn't get our first color TV until 1979. The only reason we got it then was because we moved from Illinois to California and needed a new TV. Even in 1979 those RCA TV's were HUGE compared to the screen itself.
