I can’t explain why, but I have a soft spot for the BMD series of air transportable military vehicles.  Same goes for the ASU series of assault guns.  Now it looks like Russia has developed a follow on vehicle to the BMD series. Story here.  However, given Russia’s financial problems I have my doubts they’ll be deployed in large numbers anytime soon.

No more fitting a story for this Veteran’s day.  What a great project.

and related, another important WWII USN ship is found.  The improvements in underwater technology clearly will lead to us at least knowing the final resting places of many WWI and WWII sailors.

This is what I worry about

I don’t worry about global warming.  I worry about this.  Global cooling (aka a new ice age) would be a disaster for mankind.  I am not so sure it isn’t going to happen.
