    He is quite right. My wife and I went to China earlier this year. We were on the deck of our cruise ship travelling down the Yangtze River and were passing a particularly lovely shrine on the shore. Next to me at the railing was the younger couple ( and that ‘younger’ throws the possibilities wide open) whom we had met earlier in the trip. I took a couple of pictures of the shrine with my Nikon SLR and turned to see them both hanging onto the railing while he snapped a ‘selfie’ of them both with his phone, presumably with the shrine in the background.
    Later at supper I asked if they had enjoyed the beauty of the lovely little shrine we had passed earlier and he said, ‘no they hadn’t really seen it and their picture didn’t turn out well, and if my picture turned out, would I send it to them?’ So not only hadn’t they enjoyed that beautiful sight of the shrine on the shore, but they didn’t even have a picture of it and worse still, had no memory of it.
    I, later after getting home, remembered their request, and sent them a picture of a horse’s rear end, with a bird sitting on it. I sort of doubt that they got the point.

    “Can anyone else help here? I don’t know much about iOS.”

    Sure can! Switch to BlackBerry. Fastest browser available and the new BB10 OS is worlds better than anything apple can offer ( unless you want your selfies hacked that is ). Let’s face it. The apple OS is basically going on ten years old. They never rewrote it, but just added layers of band-aid patches. If it was any older, it would only do black and white movies.

    HEAR bloody HEAR!!

    There isn’t one adult reading this who, in his / her heart of hearts knows that they would happily water-board a terrorist who had information that would have stopped 911, or stopped the rape of their daughter, or stopped that bloody terrorist at Fort Hood, or any of a thousand other terrorists. Anyone who says that they would not ‘torture’ to protect members of their own family, or members of their national family is either too stupid to understand the concept, a coward or a liar ( or all of the above).

    It is only the soft headed and other liberals sitting in their mom’s recreation rooms, who insist that ‘torture’ should never be used to save lives. It is only the afore mentioned liberals who do not under stand the difference between torture and discomfort. It is only liberals who would sell their nation down the river to save a terrorist from loud music, cold feet, loss of sleep and, God forbid, a little water.

    It is obviously a projectile of some sort or it would not be aerodynamically shaped. There may be sensors along it’s flank ( about half way down the side) and there may also be ports for out-gassing about 3/4 of the way to the blunt end.

    Possibilities-

    - Steerable artillery projectile
    - sensor head for a missile
    - sensor head for tactical, artillery fired, anti-missile system
    - strategic highway driver intimidation device

    There is a different perspective on the battle that we will never hear.

    Apple used to be a marketing Juggernaut. They managed to sell their marginal products to a dedicated fan base, and expand their market share all based on their marketing programme. And let’s be honest: Apple hasn’t been a technological innovator for a long, long time. ( Case in point: NFC. Almost every other manufacturer has had NFC for years. These manufacturers designed their NFC systems to be compatible with all kinds of equipment using NFC. Apple adopted it this year with their i-phone 6 line and limited it’s use to only apple approved systems. That is not innovation.)
    It now appears that apple is not the cool hipster anymore ( apple vs PC television ad campaign). Quite the contrary. Apple has morphed into the dumpy fat guy and their promotions department is unable to stop the slide to the bottom of the heap.

    And all the time the officer was bravely beating the hell out of the gentleman he was humming the ‘Horst Wessel’ song.

    Castial, relax. There is nothing going on here that is of any threat to you. There are no black helicopters. There is nobody watching you day and night. That funny noise on your cell phone? It is only your i-phone losing it’s signal again. Emails lost again? (i-phone)

    European anti-Semitism went underground after WWII. but has never been far from the hearts of all Europeans. It has guided their response to any Jewish issue since, well, since the beginning of time and continues to do so. Now as the muslim influence in Europe grows we are seeing the same anti-Semitism that gave birth to Nazism, that ruled France and the rest of Europe, and now feeds on the hatred of muslims for Jews, rise to the surface once again.
    This time the Europeans should understand that we will not be coming over again to help. They are making their bed and must now sleep in it. If they can’t help themselves then let the muslims have them.

    Snow, should your contention be correct, I would expect every Man and Woman in the American Armed forces to refuse to serve. It would be a major crisis, agreed, but there comes a time when the armed forces must stand for the constitution and refuse to serve a president who has violated that constitution on numerous occasions.

    Obama is a traitor to his country, to his people and to his oath to protect the constitution. He has violated his oath and endangered his country. He should be removed from office.

    If Bond was tortured under current American conventions he spend several days in a comfy chair being served cold food, while forced to watch re-runs of ‘My Mother the Car’.

    THE HORROR. THE HORROR. THE HORROR.

    “Pulling over people that aren’t breaking the law”

    Pulling over people WHO aren’t breaking the law. People are ‘who’s. Things are ‘that’s.
    The writing by the Blaze staff is terrible. Did any of them take a high school english course?

    OK. We’ve had all the platitudes about ‘dying while doing what he loved most’ ( I am sure that feeling like his chest was exploding was not one of the things he loved by the way) so it is time for someone to quote that oft heard joke;

    “When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather; slipping into the eternal sleep. Not screaming my lungs out in terror like his passengers.”

    The real question is how these opinionated, ill-informed, liberal ideologue, agenda driven ignorants ever get into a position to pass their screed on to young men and women who would command troops under fire? They must be superannuated baby boomers who grew up with the Vietnam war, and learned that all military was bad. Surly something can be done to expel these vermin before they do any further damage!

    ” … institutional violence against Black people.”

    That is the lie. If there is a focus of institutional action against black people it is because such a small minority are responsible for upwards of 70% of crime in America.

    It is common practise for the armed forces to ‘make public’ any advanced weapons system that has been ‘discovered’ by persons not under control of that service. It is likely that the deployment of this system is now so wide spread and has been observed by so many non-military persons that continued secrecy was impossible.
    Logically, it makes one wonder what weapons systems are currently under deep cover. One can speculate all day and well into the night, but what we are allowed to see, Aurora, that high performance replacement for the space shuttle that was in orbit for a year, the strange sightings on radars across the country, the loud explosions heard all down the east coast, the mysterious launchings off the California coast etc. etc. etc may be real and some not. These things may or may not be a part of the military smoke screen meant to confuse and camouflage.
    Some are not.
