Gaza's Only Power Plant Knocked Offline

Guy From V Please Explain This Crap (783 comments)

Please, someone explain to me how seemingly rational and normal people who seem to have it all together and seemingly hold a good sum of beliefs that can be called measured and critical can demonize Israel for defending themselves...in an amazingly measured manner I must say...in a lion's den of homicidal and genocidal area of the world against a people who will accept nothing but their destruction (it's in their charter or something) when all these other dudes (who happen to be a designated terrorist organization) by NATO..I think, at least by the US)...and.... ...you know what, fuck it. People who complain about Israel and make martyrs out of HAMAS are truly fucking deluded or stupid.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Guy From V Re:Bugs... (184 comments)

Lol, nice. Can it, at least, maybe use the EC to mask it's own signature it's putting out? That would be like covering up your own footsteps by yelling I guess, heh.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

Guy From V Re:Bugs... (184 comments)

It depends on what role they want the F-35 to play, I've seen that it was designed alternatively either as a fighter or multirole aircraft. As a swing-role or multirole craft this could easily dominate. As a fighter, that is harder to see for the very reasons you brought up...size, drag etc...but the stealth and electronic warfare packages, which I assume this helmet plays a major role in monitoring and interfacing, might be a trump card that overcomes it's deficiencies in air-to-air and air superiority combat.

UN Report Finds NSA Mass Surveillance Likely Violated Human Rights

Guy From V Re:Big Deal (261 comments)

The UN is far from a democratic organization, it's problems lie with the leverage the permanent Security Council has over it and the stagnated idea that it is still 1945. I admit that just complaining that it sucks at it's job isn't constructive and also that I have no better alternatives other than a reform of the power structure of it's leadership - but I think most everyone knows that will not happen, so I guess I'm done here.

UN Report Finds NSA Mass Surveillance Likely Violated Human Rights

Guy From V Re:Big Deal (261 comments)

If only citizens of countries that are models of competency are allowed an opinion on the UN's competency then we would have approximately zero valid opinions.

Now if only the UN were a realistically competent and non-laughable organization this might actually matter in some way.

Radical Dual Tilting Blade Helicopter Design Targets Speeds of Over 270mph

Guy From V Don't Screw Up Again (103 comments)

If anyone remembers the last few years of development for the RAH-66 Comanche and how it had to be scrapped due to compartmentalized co-development of the different systems jacking up the cost to astronomical levels for one unit just from inefficiency. It was a great stealth escort weapons platform - shelved and set the US fixed wing aircraft scene back years. I hope this one can cut it in a modern battlespace scenario.

Smart Gun Maker Filed For 'Remote Kill Switch' Patent

Guy From V Guy From V writes  |  about 2 months ago

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Discovered by a reader over at TTAG. Though filed for in 2006, and received in 2008, the maker of the first marketable (therefore possibly mandatory by force of law) firearm with what is considered smart gun tech, this remote transmitting device patent patent from Armatix is exemplary of why many consider this technology an affront to the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment."

Guy From V (1453391) writes "Charles Carreon, zany lawyer and poster-child for the Streisand Effect (sorry Babs) for his lawsuit against The Oatmeal creator Mattew Innman last year in his original role as legal counsel for Funnyjunk, as reported by ArsTechnica, seems to have finally called it quits. In other news, the River Styx has reportedly dropped below 32 degrees Fahrenheit."
