    One of these siimilar companies actually was praising it’s ability to shut off weapons in a 2,000 yd area with one of their radio jammers so schools would be protected and even military arms with this device would be shut down to prevent frendly fire. Beware of giving up control of your arms.

    What I want to know is how you sign a contract if you can not write, let alone a check made out to you? I think handwriting style legally proves identify more than a check box on a computer form?

    How about we let him keep the beard and give him the trial nobody seems to want to give him. The beard might make hiim attractive to the other inmates prior to his execution. Like Larry the Cable Guy Says “Get err Done”

    Watch Mythbusters. Lead rounds even with copper jakects do not spark on impact. Hollywood uses special sparking rounds to make the effect. Only other round that could cause fires are tracers which are not normally used in target practice. I agree Prove It first before you run with it as truth.

    Not as easy as you think. Your dealing with exteremely cold temperatures at altiude which can cause flexible diaphragms that control (requlate oxygen flow) to change flexiblilty. Actrually the rubber can harden up enough to severly restrict movement that is responsible for oxygen flow. Unless the old engineers tell the new engineers about these quirks they have to learn the hard way. There are other things like saliva that can run down the pilots mask inside and freeze mechanism imobilizing them. So proper maintenance of mask is also a critical factor. I know this as I designed facepieces to work at -40 degrees F to + 160 degrees F. One other thought as I think about this you are experiencing up to 10 gs of force which if your parts are not designed properly could bind from bending under the g forces and stop working. I am not knowledgeable enough to know if fighter aircraft have heating systems for the cockpit or not I would hope they do and that could be another root problem to keep the regulator warm.

    This is not a political or religious issure. It is a health and safety issue. I worked for 35 years designing facepieces and breathing sytems for fireman and police. OSHA or Ocupatioanal Safety and Health Administration requires facepiece fit test to isure the wearer has a good fit between skin and mask. Anyone with a beard will fail this test making his facepiece useless to him. Which in our field means esposure to gases that can cause sickness or immediate death. Did you understand the immediate death part. That is why the NYPD fired him. He will not pass the facepiece fit test required by federal law. Some times the answers are simple.

    Just an accident or an attempt at suicide by cop car? You be the judge. Either way this person needs alot of help to heal.

    What a disgrace to the those who died that this is how they are to be remembered, a political rally in a college basketball arena. What a class act the President is bringing his staff to make their statements. God help the Nation.

    As much as it pains me to admit it, Father Pleger is a Catholic Priest. We seem to have a bunch of activist priests in my religion who step out of bounds and are not removed from the priesthood. The Moron faith did not produce Father Pleger.
