Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - Here is a ‘Fun Fact’...An example of a lie becoming a truth if repeated often enough. The old story about if a bullet from a gun is shot and another dropped at the same time, they will both hit the ground at the same time. And of course this can never be true unless some kinds of interferen...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA – I don’t see much action in the ‘Fun Facts’. What, no fun? One time at work – We are having a meeting at 1 o’clock. A visitor’s opening words, Hi, my name is so and so. I am an accountant. I do the books. I make them come out like the boss wants them to come out. Those are the only words tha...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - - One time in the Air Force, The Commanding General of the ‘Northeast Air Command’ wanted an inspection of his personal assigned T-33 air craft to be disassembled to some level that was just amazing to me. Half of our hanger floor was full of big parts and little parts, nuts and bolts, with...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA - //www.naval-technology.com/features/featuredeep-secret-secure-submarine-communication-on-a-quantum-level/ This is all new to me and I know nothing about it. To get the power necessary to get through the water via satellite is the tricky part. When I was involved it was done just by brute fo...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Trivia –https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2.4_GHz_radio_use I guess these 2.4 Ghz radios are still the latest used for RC use. Real close to the ones that I was talking about, not exactly but close enough. The idea being that one can just show up at say an RC field where everyone has an RC plane or what...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Trivia –https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frequency-hopping_spread_spectrum Oh heck, I have at least two sets of these and didn’t even think about it. The ones that I have are used with my RC airplanes but not for voice radio. These are just one way of course. These were the latest at the time. Look at ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

FUN FACT TRIVIA - I just thought as funny - I just received, possibly as a 'Fishing' email. "Army National Guard has an opening for a 31B Military Police - Police Officer in their Farmington location. We thought you might be interested in this opportunity. To explore this further you'll find more de...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Trivia of the day.... The reason that I had to travel so much with the job is that there were usually about 175 guys that had to cover these work sites and they typically liked to make them for two years minimum. Out of these main sites we had to go to other odd-ball places from there for two days t...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

TRIVIA, to some, maybe more than to some - I was reminded of this yesterday when my wife showed me some pictures on her Tablet from a Great Grandson in Alaska. He is in the Air Force and as soon as his Commander in Chief signs the necessary paper work, he is looking forward to getting kicked out of ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

RAMBLING TRIVIA---I went out on the deck this morning and cast 10 pounds of 45 slugs. The first thing that I noticed as my pot and mold were warming up were the bees on my wife’s flowers and was reminded of something that my Boy Scout Leader had told us one time - How to get that free honey. Sure en...

I know that political postings are not allowed, but look at all of the current juicy stuff going around that is gun related...but I will comply of course...Roger Will Co.
