What is the best / worst case scenario for Hillary?

How many states do you think she'll win? This is for those more knowledgeable than me. I still remember Nixon's defeat of McGovern in 1972. I would love to see the reverse of that and Trump only win one state, or even none.

If she wins my home state of Texas that would be fabulous. It would be a political earthquake here.

Enlighten me about Kaine.

What kind of VP do you think he will make? Strengths, weaknesses (if any), areas of interests? I have to admit I have paid no attention to him, so any information is appreciated.

Rogue One - Official Trailer #2.

Boy, I can't wait for this one.

New Rules - Don't be a Trump.

Use Trump's name as a way of calling out bad behavior.

Don't pull a Trump.
That's Trumpet behavior.

Please add one of your own.

Cockatoo cusses owner out for destroying his cage.

"I am not available for grabbing"

That should be a t shirt that women should wear. It's not vulgar and gets the point across.

Men could wear a shirt that says "My wife / girlfriend is not availble for grabbing."

Post your favorite pet video.

Here's mine: Frog Frenchie Fun Bulldog Puppy Protests Bedtime. I love Frenchie puppies, they are so cute, and so verbal.

Why is Ohio always a Battleground State?

It has been one as far back as I remember, which is the late '60s. Is it one this year?

What's going with former VP Gore?

Haven't seen or heard about him lately. Has he endorsed HRC?

Airbus Makes Beautiful Crosswind Landing At The End Of The World


The approach to Ushuaia International Airport in Argentina, near the southern tip of South America, is known for being windy. Last week, an Airbus A340-300 made a beautiful cross-wind landing there, kicking the crab out with a little cross control to keep the wings level and the aircraft from drifting off centerline.


Notice how low the wings are situated on the A340’s fuselage, and how much lower the bottom of the engine nacelles are. This requires the pilot to keep the wings as level as possible so nothing strikes the ground right before landing. On smaller or high wing planes, a wing down into the wind approach can be used instead of a crab, this is called a side-slip. Side-slip approaches can end with only one side of the aircraft’s gear touching down first, and its wing still drooped into the wind. As the aircraft slows, the wing can be raised and the landing gear on the other side of the aircraft can touch down safely.
