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.

Biggest hole in the ground you're likely to see. Native Americans never fell in. Seems easy to avoid falling into the biggest damned hole in the nation. Big hole. Don't go near edge.

Yeah, when your "selfie" requires the delayed gratification of having to paint it upon a wall, it's quite a different dynamic involved.

I really like this logic. It is simple, employs a generous amount of common sense and its end result is almost 100% guaranteed. You just don't find logic this natural and straightforward much these days. There is one possible contradiction to this debate. Might this simply be a result of AOC's prediction of the world ending in twelve years do to continued fossil fuel use? Maybe these folks are simply checking out early to save themselves the trouble of struggling to survive until the end? I mean, what's twelve years anyway?

Agreed. That happens to a few of these people, maybe others will start to realize they are responsible for their own actions and the consequences of those actions.

Yep, if they did something stupid leave them there. Every time SAR goes to rescue an idiot out they're putting their own lives at risk.

I just got done visiting the Grand Canyon and I survived. Some idiot had to go and sit on the edge. He promptly got his butt chewed by Security.they said do it again and they’ll throw him out of the park. They had barricades about 10 feet in from the ledge but people still crossed the barricades and had to be told by Security to move back.

Here's what I was talking about. You can see the Security guard coming up from the left.
