In Topic: how crap is this government ?

Yesterday, 04:26 PM

 

 

 

Reddit has been on this one heavily. Consensus seems to be that we're going to lead the world in steampunk-esque coal-fired rockets.

 

Old Malcy would just wet himself over something like that.

 

 

Nazis thought about coal powered rocket planes too

Hmm,

 

 A jet rather than a rocket, but interesting, never knew that :)

 

Cheers

We've been launching rockets, out of Woomera, longer than I've lived here, as space goes private it makes sense to have a governing agency.

 Can't say I take much notice if at all of Reddit, but we do actually know how to make a variety of rocket fuels and I don't think any of them involve coal :)

Australia is getting a space agency! So what is going to do exactly ...

In Topic: Same-sex postal survey is a go

24 September 2017 - 01:38 PM

...Not pleasant, but to get back to topic we've so far had six survey forms appear in the mail, people who never updated their enrollment details I suppose.

 

I just took them back to the post office, as tempting as it was to use to boost the Yes vote.

 

It's a ridiculous debacle, could have been done on-line for a fraction of the cost and a lot less inconvenience.

 

Cheers


In Topic: when will the war start ?

15 September 2017 - 04:00 PM

Beijing is running out of patience with Kim, I doubt they'd react Cybes. It's just politics, but picking a fight with China probably would not bother the U.S. much - might bother Beijing - the size and quality of the U.S. forces is pretty impressive...

 

Quite correct Scruffy, compared to even Russian missiles the NK ones are crap, compared to U.S. ones they are stone-age.
