    The Simpsons predicted a lot of stuff 10 years before it happened, too. That's what happens when you ramble on endlessly. You get lucky. Even a blind squirrel... as the saying goes.

    Right, for what I've seen, it looks like many organizations are choosing to certify a process, and then use that process for different shapes and final parts. Destructive testing of those final...

    Oh give me a break. This is STILL pretty low gas prices. Are we not remembering how we somehow didn't all die a terrible death when gas was $4/gal?
