    I'm not sure who we've attacked but that's beside the point....yes, my life and your life is worthless to 'those people'. That's why it's called war and not a bridal shower.

    Well, it hardly matters what the rest of the world thinks is good for America. Just as it makes absolutely no difference what I think about what's good for Peru or Germany. Sure, I can have an...

    The difference between Trump and the children in politics who oppose him is simple.

    Trump - right or wrong - does what he believes is best for the country. That's what an good President (or...

    I would have not had any agony over dropping the bomb. Agony is a good thing - if taken in moderation.

    To state 'science is science' would be to ignore the thousands of times science has proven to be wrong. Let's not forget there was a time the best medical experts would let a few quarts of blood out...

    "My old doctor was not impressed by patients asking for medicines by name."

    Precisely. I'm amazed at how people routinely tell me the names of drugs as if they're experts. Even the dosages. If...

    Well, that's pretty much what I said. No one uses KTB's in lightly loaded, non-vertical applications. It's a given, pretty much, that KTB is going to be used vertically (usually but not always) and...

    350HP (260KW) is a lot of heat. Especially when it's waste heat.

    Sure they do. How can they not? They are used on those pieces of equipment because they provide a function...not because anyone 'wants' to use them. They'd much rather use a 'normal' cylindrical...
