Re: Tipping over V-1s

It made me go and review the construction of the V-1 - fascinating design. Really clever. Awful things.

Re: Self-driving Uber Car Total Disaster

Also apparently this week another Tesla ploughed while on autopilot.
Bizarre accident. The driver appears to have been using the car as one would ride a train. With no regard to the conducting of the vehicle!

Re: Tourist hell i chopper crashes.



Also, try to keep your personal effects (and/or appendages) from getting hung up in the controls.

Re: The Shoot Down of KAL 007

Bert, seven or so years ago I recall you were of the opinion that the plane had landed (or at least crashed with survivors) and that those survivors were likely still alive and had been brainwashed. Are you still of this opinion. If so, please tell us why.
Thanks
