Nagasaki

The decisive end to World War 2 came about 74 years ago today with the Atomic bombing of the port city of Nagasaki.  The Empire of Japan having not really believed what happened a few days prior at Hiroshima did not head the warning the US was giving and as such, something terrible happened. Thankfully … Continued

The Hummer H1

0

I love the Hummer.  If I could have any car in the world, that would be it.  Sure it’s got terrible gas mileage.  Sure it’s massive and wouldn’t fit up my driveway.  Sure it’s excessive.  But it’s just so damn cool.  I don’t need toe $200k version.  I’m OK with an army surplus one from … Continued

A 360° View of The F-35

0

This is a pretty good video that goes over some of the advanced features of the new fifth-generation fighter, the F-35: It’s a nice video, the beginning of it doesn’t really merit a 360° video, but it’s still cool.  There’s alot of 35,000 foot type view information given of the different systems and how they … Continued

75 Years of D-Day

The passage of time move slowly yet surly forward.  It cannot be stopped, rewound, or ignored.  Sometimes it seems like it’s paused when we go to sleep, but it moves on with or without our knowledge and most of all, without our blessing.  In the grand scheme of things, 75 years is not a long … Continued

Earth Day

Welcome to Earth, 3rd Rock from the Sun.  Today is the day that we celebrate it.  I’m not sure why, something from the 1970s.  Anyway despite what you might think you know about me, I do support the earth.  I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.  In fact, I’ve gone … Continued

PARKS: The Board game

0

I might be alittle behind on this (the Kickstarter has ended, but was funded to over 2000%), but this looks like a pretty ace game. There have been a few more additions to the National Parks since this was conceived and produced, but that’s the nature of the world, things are constantly changing.  I’m bummed … Continued

Happy Birthday Grand Canyon

0

Today the Grand Canyon turns 100 years old.  Well, it’s actually several million years old, but the protections put in place by the great President Teddy Roosevelt are celebrated. I’ve been to the Grand Canyon 3 different times in my life.  Nothing quite prepares you for a helicopter ride over and below the rim though.  … Continued

Today is Important

Do you know what today is?  It’s an important day.  It comes once a year and people all over the world have wondered why. No, it’s not The Super Bowl, it’s The Day the Music Died.  Made famous by Don McLean’s classic song, American Pie, the world of music forever changed when Buddy Holly, The … Continued

The Infamous day was Seventy Seven years ago.  The speech will happen tomorrow.  But the day is today.  Remember it.

30 Years

It’s been Thirty years since Los Angeles joined the ranks of cities whose only qualification was to be a victim of a terrorist act.  Though, were they really terrorists?  Their own ranks called themselves exceptional thieves, and one-time kidnappers, not terrorists.  No Hans Grubber and his pals were opportunists, and only cared about money, $600 … Continued
