Some Things May Be True Even If Donald Trump Said Them - Jon Karl, ABC News
That got a chuckle out me.

Latin [followed by literal translation (followed by more interpretive in brackets)]Doc : In vino veritas. [In wine there is truth. (Being drunk makes me tell the truth.)]Ringo : Age quod agis. [Do what you do. (Being drunk makes you a drunkard / it’s good to stick to what you know best.)]Doc : Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego. [This is a quote from the ancient poet Horace] Let the Jew Apella believe it, not me. (Go and tell someone who cares.)Ringo : Juventus stultorum magister. [Youth is the teacher of fools. (Fools need to learn by experience / Perhaps a fool like you needs someone experienced to teach him a lesson.)]Doc : In pace requiescat! [Rest in peace. (Do what you like, it’s your funeral.)]- Owen Williams
“Rest in peace” This phrase is normally used to address a corpse. Holliday is threatening Ringo. The background is this; both Holliday and Ringo are Southern gentlemen whose lives were ruined by the Civil War. After losing everything they moved West to start over again. A Southern gentleman was well educated, usually able to speak Latin and French. These two recognize each other’s background but this doesn’t make them friends. - John P. Scallan

Where are the air intakes? This is a jet powered aircraft, it's not rocket powered, so how does it breath?

Republic made a little over 800 of these airplanes and almost half were lost in combat in the Vietnam war. Funny, but no one mentions how many of those pilots survived. I suspect it wasn't many. Over 5,000 helicopter pilots were killed in Vietnam, and those guys were Army, not Air Force.
Like the B-52s, the Thunderchief was used to bomb North Vietnam, and like the B-52s they operated out of Thailand, though at different air bases.

It makes me so mad!
“Did you watch the news last night?”
“Yeah, I watched [Tucker Carlson/Rachel Maddow].”
Except that’s not the news. That’s an editorial program where a person gets performatively angry about their opinion of selected bits of news so that you get angry about it along with them...righteously angry enough to sit through an hour’s worth of commercials.
It’s not news, it’s irritainment.

I noticed that my list of labels was getting out of hand so I am attempting to make some sense of it. Places seemed like a good place to start, so I have made a spreadsheet with all of the labels related to places and organized them according to their region. I am also making a page with this table and adding it to the sidebar for quick access. I don't know if anyone else every uses labels, but I do, mostly to refresh my memory.
