  1. Hi, [ChaosweaveR]'s friend here. I need to see the citation. You can blank out the personal information if you want I just need to see exactly what you were sent and if any of the information is wrong point it out for me and describe how it's wrong. Also, what State are you in?
  2. Well I'm back because I honestly completely forgot this place existed. Sorry. Anyway, Chaos told me that there were people here who loved to play Orbiter 2010. Any of you here?
  3. ...Chris? Do you even know who that is? Are you even aware who that character is?
  4. Physics nerd incoming. This is true. Light will always travel in a straight line unless some massive force distorts spacetime itself to curve its path. Unless you happen to work at the LHC and routinely drive through the ATLAS detector, light curving is unlikely to be an issue. From some reading, the only difference between a bulb and an HID is that the HID uses an electric arc rather than a hot filament to produce light. So unless there is some mirror altering the direction of the light, assume that the light will travel in all directions from the center where there is nothing opaque
  5. Says the one with a rainbow dash avatar. I'm sorry, but I can totally picture Dash as a fighter pilot. And she'd probably kick Maverick's ass. Edit: Not a dig on you or anything, just pointing out that Dash just screams fighter pilot at me.
  6. Actually, screw the F-22. The F-35 has its HUD in the helmet itself and gives you no need to ever look inside the plane.
  7. What the hell? Would that even really work? You could siphon it into the tank but that wouldn't cause the tank to just overflow and spill all over?
  8. Funny story, sometimes I still get banner tow jobs, I rent a C-172 for those. Geico had me flying an insurance banner in the wind storm the day before Hurricane Irene. I had to tell ground control I was serious about asking for taxi clearance in a C-172N twice before they stoppe laughing at me. Landing with a 45* crab angle in crosswinds was...interesting. I had to bail the damn banner and then go get it with my pt cruiser blowing around the airport grass. Call me dumb, but I know what my limits are. It's all just vectors of force. At least the tower got a picture of my PT cruiser cha
  9. I'd love to get in one of those, that cockpit is sick. That and the F-22 Raptor are at the top of my list of things to fly before I die. I'm half tempted to take out a loan for the $60 million to buy one and then just wait for hyperinflation when the country collapses.
  10. Family rushed me through flight training because airplane rentals aren't particularly expensive per se, but rental of a pilot is. Also we hate the TSA. Also we hate airline schedules, and private jets fly in style. Seriously, take a look at the inside of this thing. Anyway. They pushed me through it. These are my current certs: Private pilot, commercial pilot (NOT ATP), instrument, complex, multiengine, rotorcraft, ultralight, glider. That was done over summers and winter breaks, and a lot of CAP flying. Nobody realizes you can basically fly for free, get free hours, and build u
  11. Awesome sauce of deliciousness and frosting.
  12. After so long being in Geek Squad and having everyone and their mother ask for help with "just one thing", I feel bad asking you. I don't know if it's different with cars or what. It's also been really cold. If you really want to, that would be awesome. I just feel bad asking is all.
