T11. I was working 12A and the corner net calls were priceless. »
Patrick, I think your opening line is a bit off. The jury found Barajas did NOT kill Banda. If they had found he had, he could have been convicted of anything ranging from manslaughter to the capital murder he was charged with.
Additionally, they found *fragments* of *a* bullet they think *might* be a .357 Magnum, but… »
Lutz lives in western Washtenaw County, somewhere near-ish Chelsea. Macomb is the NE portion of the Detroit Metro area (the GM Warren Tech Center is in Macomb County). »
Personally, I prefer the Bongo Friendee. It's a shame the never made a Bongo Brawny Friendee (or Friendee Brawny). »
Let's try this again: C-130. Say it with me now: C-130. There is no C-170 unless you count the Cessna 170, which, while maybe being able to land in a soccer stadium, couldn't take more than 1 hostage at a time and have a hope of taking off in a short space. »
Yep. They've been sending Mustangs officially to Japan since ~1996 or so. Different headlamps & taillamps, metric speedo/odo, and underhood/sunvisor warning labels in Japanese are the primary differences. »
It's done all the time. Just takes time and patience, mostly. If the original VIN is still on the car and legible, you may even be able to get it titled under that VIN and not under a state-issued VIN. »
M-plate. Don't get excited. It's here either for testing or evaluation/executive drives.
That's how I once drove a full-Euro-spec Escort RS Cosworth for 3 days, with the admonition not to break it as the next driver was Bill Ford Jr. »
Having spent a significant portion of my life pulling trailers up mountains in diesel trucks to test cooling systems, I'll suggest that the trans features you want are:
- A well-matched 2nd gear and 3rd gear (since we're talking about 6-speeds) to the engine and rear gear/tire size.
- 2nd gear torque converter lockup… »
Back before the State of Arizona widened the road up from Davis Dam, and in the process lopped some off the summit AND de-sloped it, I towed a lot of trailers up that grade doing cooling system testing. Yeah, a 3-mile stretch isn't exactly earth-shattering. Show me a GCWR tow at the posted speed limit in 100F ambient… »
I've got multiple tool sets in play, but whenever someone asks me about starting out, I always give them this. In order of priority: »
Yep. Walk the floor at the SAE Congress in Detroit any given year and you'll likely see a half-dozen axial engine variants being shilled. »
Yes. This, exactly. The number in the report assumes zero exploration, but in fact every producer, major down to wildcatter, is spending money on seismic studies, test wells, and employing more geologists than all the "pure science" institutes in the world combined. Thus, even while proven reserves are exploited, more… »
FTFY: "Brin looks at the world through a software engineer's lens".
There are rather a lot of engineers, particularly in the hardware disciplines (mechanical, electrical, civil), who operate quite differently. »
I'm not a radar systems engineer, but I've seen similar irregular geodesic dome constructions on other radars, and I suspect the idea is to reduce the impact of shadows caused by the dome structure. Again, not sure, but seems plausible. »
