[quote]Don't they both have vertical take off and landing capabilities? [/quote] F-22 doesn't AFAIK. F-35 theoretically has but that particular variant has had all sorts of problems. Again, you can build to some level of commonality but you have to start with the variant having the strictest ...

re: The F-35: the only issue anyone should care about - Quidam65

[quote]I thought about that too... because I know when you fill your tires, you are supposed to do it before you drive because your tires warm when you drive and the air expands. [/quote] I remember driving to Arkansas and it was warm the first day. The next day a storm system came through and...

re: Do you totally dismiss 9/11 truthers as insane, or listen and give counterpoints - Quidam65
I've learned that when you're dealing with ANY conspiracy theory (9/11, JFK, tax protestors who claim the 16th Amendment isn't valid), don't waste your time engaging them. Discussions are futile. They have their views and if you don't agree, at best you're simply uninformed and at worst you're p...

re: Louisiana higher education officials say campus closures are a possibility - Quidam65
[quote]Also, shutting down technical colleges would be a crappy move. In Louisiana especially, you can get some well-paying jobs with a two year degree. Most of those two year degree fields would be better off switching the system back to apprenticeship. Mechanics, plumbers, electricians, etc...

re: My Key Ignition Broke - Anyone Ever Dealt With This? - Quidam65
You're talking a whole new unit. And unless you get all your door locks re-keyed you'll need two keys, one for the doors and one for the ignition. I had this happen and I think it came to around $300 but I didn't get the locks re-keyed (it was an older car and I ended up replacing it about a yea...
