    What was the best vacation of your life

    I am headed to a guys vacation in June in first Burlington Vermont, then Montreal Canada. Why you may ask Burlington VT?? That is the home to WhistlePig Distillery. We are going to pick a barrel of Whiskey there. Then being one our friends birthdays it's on to Montreal to celebrate that and take in the ballet. I'll be one of the older guys going and this is going to be a hoot. We booked an AirBnb Castle in Montreal. We have guys flying in from CA we also have someone going up next month to scout restaurants. We're calling him our culinary director. lol So here is where we are staying in Montreal. I expect it to be an awesome trip!

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    I've known and exchanged posts with ASF for years. From his missionary days to where he is now. It would fascinate me to no end to sit down one afternoon/evening over some whiskey and cigars and have him walk me through that journey.

    Tax Bill

    See the killer was having the house and all the salt deductions and the personal exemptions reduced hugely. You didn't have all of them so didn't lose them. Plus you added child care credits that weren't there last year. If you had been in your house all last year and then filed the same this year I'm not sure you would have been thrilled. You just had a unique circumstance that hit the sweet spots of this tax plan. I'm still pissed!! lol (not at you, ****ing trump!)
  6. They better not piss you all off. You're all they got left.

    BBC: First ever image of a black hole revealed

    They have found a super massive black hole at the center of most every galaxy. Now the question is do the galaxies create the black holes or the black holes create the galaxies. Chicken and egg kind of thing. Dark matter/energy read about it, then nothing will make sense.

    BBC: First ever image of a black hole revealed

    It would somehow be so fitting if upon reaching a certain mass these Black holes generated big bangs of their own.

    The Liquor Thread

    This isn’t the their rye but a high rye bourbon. It’s a newcomer. I didn’t care for their rye or wheated bourbon but loved this.

    The Liquor Thread

    I was able to try some Wilderness Trail High Rye Bourbon Sunday and I must say it's my favorite new bourbon in a while. Can't wait to get some. Supposed to start distribution in May keep your eyes open. The other Wilderness Trail stuff I tried I though was just ok, this stuff is pretty damn good though. Will be distributed in DC and MD also. Not Virginia though.

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    Isn’t the max a pilot is allowed to fly 1000 hours per year?

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    I’ve never understood why if something as grand as the universe MUST have a creator then why can an entity capable of creating it just have always existed?? Couldn’t the universe just always existed??

    Interesting. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/africa/ethiopia-says-pilots-performed-boeings-recommendations-to-stop-doomed-aircraft-from-diving-urges-review-of-737-max-flight-control-system/2019/04/04/3a125942-4fec-11e9-bdb7-44f948cc0605_story.html?utm_term=.ae6606692dc2 Experts say that the airplane was traveling too fast for the manual trim wheel to be operated. At higher speed, manual trim may not be available due [to] air load on the stabilizer,” said John Cox, a former pilot and an airline-safety consultant who has been privately briefed on the evidence by people familiar with the investigation. “Not enough force can be generated manually to move the trim.”

    All Things "AOC" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    I think she has a great future. At 29 she has a lot to learn about navigating the treacherous waters of National Politics. Knowledge and good intentions are not enough. You have to learn what and how the politico are trying to destroy you and your message and how to effectively combat that. I think the Presidential minimum age works in her favor here. She can't be tempted by her popularity to run to soon.

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    Seems the flight crew tried multiple times to follow Boeings disconnect instructions but the effort failed. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/africa/ethiopia-says-pilots-performed-boeings-recommendations-to-stop-doomed-aircraft-from-diving-urges-review-of-737-max-flight-control-system/2019/04/04/3a125942-4fec-11e9-bdb7-44f948cc0605_story.html?utm_term=.07b8cd1f6b5f

    If it was speculation MCAS would have never existed on a 737. The engines affected the stability of the airframe. If not MCAS would have never been created to mask the instability.

    This wasn't progress. Progress would have been making a new lighter airframe designed for these fuel efficient engines. Boeing took a shortcut to save time and money and tried to put engine on an airframe that was never designed for them and 100's of people payed with their lives. All brought on because they were losing orders to Airbus in this size category.

    Seems like the next question is if MCAS can override the pilot taking control. Just gotta wait and let the investigation play out.

    Presidential Election 2020 - ManChild vs Adult

    I have a dreadful feelin that trump is gonna win in 2020. He’s pretty much proved what he said, he can shoot somebody dead in the street and his voters will still vote for him. Plus the electoral college is in his favor. Just not looking good.

    I thought one of the main selling points of the Max wad it was the same as previous 737’s and you didn’t need retraining. Even went so far as to just use the digital displays to show old fashioned gauges instead of a more modern ****pit configuration.
