[quote]Meanwhile, [b]Brennan has only two more games of experience more than Nuss[/b] and Brennan's experience came against exceedingly shitty teams and even then, his only victory was over the worse Vanderbilt team in several decades. However, although [b]Nuss has slightly less game experience ...

[quote]Probably not, the reactor is going to be pretty small making containment and shielding less of a issue. Even thought this aircraft is enormous it doesn’t require a reactor that would typically power a city. There is evidence the air force built a prototype nuclear powered 4 engine bomber in t...

[quote]How do the jet engines work if they're not powered by hydrocarbon fuel?[/quote] They aren’t jet engines. They’re just electric-powered fans. Modern commercial airliner engines are high-bypass turbofans, where the fan (the “bypass” around the turbine) produces the vast majority of the thrust....

re: Why do so many people have problems using “this” and “next” when referring to days? - lostinbr
[quote]Because it only works in that specific context. Example: You're talking to a friend and you remind him that he owes you $20. He says, "I'll give it to you next time I see you." Does that mean you'll see him once and he won't pay you (which would be 'this' time he sees you), and th...

re: I was a member of the jury on the Garrett Ward trial. AMA. - lostinbr
[quote]Ward obviously hit and kicked the dead guy. There are only two possible reasons for this: 1. He just decided to attack a random homeless guy for no reason for the first time in his life Or 2. The guy was rifling though his pocket and he thought he was likely to harm him. [/quote] ...

re: TFL Youtube channel tests Ford Lightning EV truck's towing range vs gas powered truck - lostinbr
[quote]Just wait until, they try to start converting tractor trailers for EV use. I wonder if they will sacrifice trailer space for batteries. Also, you could use trailers as hot swappable batteries and do runs between depots to drop a trailer off so it can charge, and the driver picks up a full...

[quote]Can’t see many other jurisdictions pulling a jury that would convict[/quote] I really don’t understand why so many folks seem to think this. As has been stated quite a few times in this thread, the burden of proof for justifiable homicide is on the defense. Ward had to prove that the ...

[quote]I'm confused. We're angry that crews found extra work and were clearing areas.[/quote] :lol: No, we’re angry because someone at DPW is running a side hustle and effectively stealing our tax dollars. My guess is that the workers are getting paid cash to do this kind of stuff, and DPW s...

re: I was a member of the jury on the Garrett Ward trial. AMA. - lostinbr
[quote]Sure, but OP hasn’t really explained any evidence and said it was 10-2 2nd degree murder with the jury, and using phrases like “entitled” and “wasn’t used to urban environments” is yikes [/quote] There’s a reason it has to be unanimous. He wasn’t convicted of 2nd degree murder. Also, in ...

re: What does the day-to-day job of a Supplier Diversity employee at LSU look like? - lostinbr
[quote]However, I do think you're on to it not really being a race thing, at least not explicitly. It's whatever da frick a historically underutilized business zone is which covers a lot of boonies as well as urban areas. [/quote] It means diversity in exactly the way you thought in your OP.

re: Umbrella Academy Season 3 **Official Discussion** - lostinbr
[quote]Sure, the Vanya/Viktor thing is one, but even that could have been done better. I like (sorta) how they at least tried to give the character some motivation, some reason for the change. But to the rest of the siblings, the explanation given and their reaction to it was really flat. " Yeah, su...
