Obsolete Warplanes That Changed the Course of History Part III

 

It is quite ironic to think that an old or outclassed military aircraft could actually save lives or even have some impact on history, but the sad truth is that often times war changes the fabric of the world very fast and events within it do have, at times, far reaching affects. So is the case with…

It’s been such a long time

I haven’t been here in such a long time. I used to hang out at Open Salon when it first went meta. It was a lot of fun and I recognize many names here! 

I have still been writing and have a short novel out in the market! I’m not going to spam you though I promise. 

Anyway I just thought I would post to see if anyone remembers me(I used several pen names...like Jeff Sessions ah caint recall.... them.

Conversation with my daughter yesterday

My daughter, seventeen, is as usual telling me I don’t understand her generation, mainly because I’m old, and of course I’ve never been young. 

“When I was your age, we all had three noses. Do you have any idea what it’s like to have to live with three...”

”Dad, my generation eats Tide Pods.”

Checkmate.

Today she related that story to my wife, who told her that for our generation it was too inconvenient to measure the detergent.

Critical Thinking

I notice that our educational system promotes critical thinking and critical inquiry, but that this can have negative side-effects among intellectuals, professionals and the like.

People focus so much on eviscerating other people's ideas, proposals, and personalities, that they spend insufficient time praising others and their creations/contributions. 

There's always going to be drawbacks with any idea or proposal. And no policy will be perfect. And if you spend your time…

The Irony of Security Clearance and Access

A security clearance is a status granted to individuals allowing them access toclassified information (state or organizational secrets) or to restricted areas, after completion of a thoroughbackground check. The term "security clearance" is also sometimes used in private organizations that have a formal process to vet employees for access to sensitive information. A clearance by itself is normally not sufficient to gain access; the organization must also determine that the cleared…
