Russia has some badass turboprop and propfan aircraft designs. I like this one too [link=(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonov_An-70)]LINK[/link]. Did you guys read about the supposed Russian submarine that got lost near Stockholm recently? [link=(http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/is-sweden-hunting-f...

re: Russia Flew 2 Nuclear Bombers Over the English Channel - stringer_bell
Russia has been aggressively flying Bears around for decades, this is not a particularly unique event. Those bombers are loud as shite because they use counter-rotating turbojets. They are a relic from the cold war, sort of similar to our B-52s. If you want to get a better idea of Putin's motivat...

re: Vanguard Account Question - Emergency Fund - stringer_bell
Vanguard is a solid brokerage, and their expense ratios for investment products are very competitive. Compared to fidelity, their mutual funds are much cheaper to own. As for liquidity, if you have everything linked to a checking account it will probably settle within a day or two, excluding weekend...

Seems like you would need to be very careful about fitting it to a part of the airframe that would be able to handle the loads. Might have to look into that if I ever reach OT Baller sta...
