Don’t forget your long johns!
Yah. But I’ll be indoors most of the time.
I hated Chicago. Even after over 40 years, I hate it.
You're right about that!
I end up there for a week in January, every three years. It’s been okay, though I hate all the panhandling.
Panhandling is why I learned years ago never to carry cash in downtown LV.
Now, I just tell them I gave at the office.
If I had a dime for everytime I said "You have to be sh*tting me" I could pay of the national dept.
LOL! And you can color your hair gray.
I don’t need to spend money for gray dye! Honest! I’ll have my hair trimmed again before I come so the red will show, and hopefully, so will the little bit of curl I have. We’ll be twins, for sure: glasses, gray hair and matching jammies...we can each hold a byo!
The comment you made about the “UFO guys” is what prompted my post...Qux follows the subject very avidly. I was being tongue in cheek anyway!
I know...undead thread.
BTW I just posted here...
Great tagline, Dark!
I’m headed off to watch the Blanket Show, kids.
Be good to yourselves and I’ll see you tomorrow.
My concept of what a "steel spider tank" is is this: It's a tank that uses legs for locomotion, giving it the gait and appearance of a spider when moving.
For impact resistance, I'd want the body to have the shape of a flying saucer, two thin spherical sections with the various weapon muzzles able to rotate about so that any weapon can be brought to bear in any direction. Essentially, this makes the entire body a turret.
I especially like the idea of operating in desert climates, as the "spider tank" would have the ability to conceal itself under a thin covering of sand, in the manner of some undersea creatures.
It would have to be large, to accommodate a large-bore weapon or two, plus appropriate rocketry and pilotless drones. Machine guns of various calibers and laser weaponry optional.
I mentioned having a flight capability. Realistically, that would have to be a variant with much lighter armor, and ducted rotors around the periphery of the saucer shape. Yes, it would fly like a flying saucer, using counter-rotating rings to pull in air at the top surface, as well as the bottom surface, and expel it forcefully through ducted openings underneath. Its flight would not be silent, but it would be capable of vertical take-offs and landings.
The large gun would probably have to be sacrificed in favor of powerful rockets and anti-personnel weapons. Special defenses against anti-aircraft rockets and missiles would be implemented.
The two types of spider tanks would complement each other, having different roles to play in the combat theater.
For each, moving about on the ground would be relatively silent and stealthy. You would not hear them coming, unless they accelerated to "scurry mode", in which the legs operate at top speed, moving across virtually any terrain at greater than sixty miles per hour.
I like to think it was probably the bargain that she made for accepting all you changelings.
Got a bit occupied updating the work blog.
Aren't you losing some potential lift that way?
If your ring louvers are configured as airfoils, the bottom rotor is as much a lifting surface as the top one is, just as the bottom rotor of a similar helicopter design would be.
By pulling in the air to a central chamber, from which ducted exits allow hover and directional control, one avoids the instability that is shown in Möller's sky car "flying saucer" films.
Control surfaces on the rotating rings allow the craft to rapidly spin left or right, although tilt and bank would depend on the thrusters. In principle, one could do a quick tilt or bank by using these same control surfaces, in a "pinch" mode, so that the speed of the maneuver depends on the rotation rate of the rings, but this would be experimental, and quite likely very dangerous.
But was it truly a bargain?
When my wife asks a question to which the answer is somewhat an imponderable, I respond, "Who can know such things?"
When you consider that your mom gave up having any kind of a normal life, for whatever benefit came from the deal that was struck, it's clear that a fondness for normalcy is not one of your family traits.
Ipso facto, you've found your way to the right place.
Awwwwwwww! So adorable!!
Thank you. Even at 5:00 am.
How are things in your time zone? Tsunami?
For our snow-covered FRiends ...
Er...thanks, but I’d be more impressed if you posted a pic of, say, Sean Connery, or Lawrence Olivier, or even Sean Astin. Even Viggo Mortensen....
Yep, that works.
My kittehs said, “Let us out!” this morning. Now they’ve all gone to bed, grumbling about the dearth of sunbeams.
In sandy environments, multi-segmented leg joints are going to be an issue. Maybe we could use a rubberized teflon “sock” at each “knee” bend to protect the servos and articulation.
AH, I see.
Your observations are pretty spot on except for one. They're not Slipper tanks, they're pods.
Otherwise, good catch(es) on the rest.
The Chicoms have been at this sort of crap for awhile.
They have a whole mind numbed contingent on Youtube.
A propaganda profile.
A propaganda video that has purported images of the vaporplane “J-XX”... problem is, some of the pics are of an F-22 being built.
Same deal as with the troll who posted this thread.
Toss out a bunch of pics, lie about what they are, have soem photoshop work done on some of them, and then state how glorious China is.
My neighbors are grumbling, too. The buds are out on the trees, and maintenance is mowing the dry grass today.
Ah-choo! 33 and snowing, but it’s melting from all but a few spots. That reminds me, I was going to make coffee. Then I need to fire up my Spanish and call my choir people about the rehearsal schedule. It’s hard to plan because some work days, some work nights, some have little kids, some work whenever there’s work to be done, etc.
It makes me appreciate my orderly, if rather housebound, life.
Having worked on the U-2 program for a few years, I noticed multiple configurations in the photos. Some older, some newer, some with newer mission equipment, some without.
It was a feeble attempt to suck some people in.
But there are those out there who would fall for it.
Heck, I work with several people who wouldn’t know better.
And trying to explain that it is fake would fall on deaf ears.
Now contrast that with here on FR where people know better, and say so -quickly!
That’s all well and good but would it mow the lawn?
I’ll say “Yes” if your definition of mowiong teh lawn is similar to mine.
Leaving a scorched and pitted wasteland where once dandelions grew.
Sigh. Blew away too much time trying to located hotels and work out travel arrangements for Frankfurt next month. All I have are the S-bahn (train) and U-bahn (metro) maps, knowledge of where the conference is, and some nearby hotels where I could stay. Argh!
This time in April, they’ll all be complaining about the heat and sunshine. Especially those with “Down East” accents.
This won’t stop being a desert just because the transplants decided they made a mistake by moving here because “it was cheap” years ago.
Yes, it does get hot in LV! I remember, from our visits in the early 70s.
Didn’t make my phone calls; I’ll have to do it after supper.
Dr. Ms. VIXEN!!
Welcome back! *HUG* How are things in your snowy state? Are you still “Ms?” Or do we have to call you something more “stately?”
It’s so good to see you! Thanks to some dear, dear FReepers, I’m going to visit with the Tax-Chicklets in April. I promise I’ll (we’ll) send lots of photos!!
Check with me on Yahoo, if you want...
Tulip! How are you?!?
Hi Face! Things are going well here. It's a little warmer than it has been for the past month. And I'm still a "Ms" for now. :-)
Hi sionnsar! I’m doing well. How are things going for you?
