Said it all along...
Oorah!!
 
“With 300 Marines, you  could probably take over Iraq if you wanted to and get rid of ISIS completely. Make no mistake about it, Marines are war fighters. I mean they are really good at what they do. The only time they are not good at what they do is when someone puts the shackles on them.” - US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrel ret. (Lone Survivor)
During a recent interview with Fox and Friends, retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, on whose life the movie Lone Survivor was based, spoke with hosts Brian Kilmeade and Elizabeth Hasselbeck about ISIS closing in on al Baghdadi, which is located 5 miles from Al Asad Air Base which houses 300 Marines.Recognizing that our military has…

*How to make 3D paper dragon"

This little dragon is only made out of paper. Just simply print, cut and stick it together, and stand it on a table and start fooling yourself.

How does it work?

If we move around viewing a solid object, our brain knows how the object we are looking at should behave. However the dragon gives us the wrong clues, because we mis-interpret what its shape is. We assume that the nose of dragon is pointing towards us, but in fact the dragon’s head is actually concave.

Just found this. looks pretty awesome.
Incredibly detailed illustrations from the French illustrator Manchu. Philippe has a new book from Delcourt/SerieB editions titled "MANCHU Starships" some time this month. I will post a link when the info becomes available. All of these illustrations are traditional acrylic on 450g weight paper, ...

HOLY CRAP!!!
This makes Oolite look like crap! Any I love Oolite!
 
I like the way this trailer understates things, because when you play the game you realise that its visually and audibly identical to the trailer. No FMV here that bears no resemblance to the actual product.

I already knew how much of the mass of a launch vehicle is taken up by reaction mass (Thanks, Tsiolkovsky), but it surprised me to see how little of the cost wedge it takes up. The allure of reusable launch vehicles is much more clear to me now. I mean, I already knew that there would be massive savings, but I always figured that there was much more of the cost that you really couldn't do anything about because you can't really reuse reaction mass. Turns out I was wrong in a good way. I really like the way that Elon Musk (I think) explained it when he said that the current model would be like building a new jumbo jet every time an airline made a flight, and dumping it in the ocean after each flight.

In many rocket engines, the blasted turbines have to be hand made one at a time. Which really drives up the cost of the engine.
Of course Elon Musk is experimenting with using 3D printing to make turbines.

If you're looking for an easy party snack, grab a package of Oreos--or similarly packaged cookies--and empty out the cookies from the middle section of the plastic holder. Then just add milk to the empty section for community dunking.
