Technological Breakthrough Will Allow Travelers To Fly Half-Way Around The World In Just 4 Hours
Incorporating the "Sabre" engine system into a passenger aircraft would involve redesigning its entire engine, so inventors do not expect it would ever be used for more than 10 per cent of flights.
But they claim it could revolutionize space flight, the purpose it was designed for, by allowing aircraft to fly directly into orbit and back to earth in one clean stage.
Current jet engines are not powerful enough to launch an aircraft into space because they can not operate at a high enough power without overheating.

Crash/Bear market alert
These are Dow mini-futures. Currently trading at 12,639 right at a minor up trend line. Key support comes in at 12,400 which is where the up trend line that began in March of 2009. (The parallel upper trend line touches two important highs. Isn't it a beauty.)* Closing below 12,400 on a weekly basis would confirm that the up trend from March 2009 is over. I have always thought that the bear from 2007 to 2009 was leg one, March 2009 to the most recent high is a bear market rally, and that leg two down would be a vicious bear market probably taking out the March 2009 low. I will take a closer look at the daily chart to see how this is unfolding. Right now it is pretty ugly with lower highs and lows that would indicate we are going to get to 12,400 pretty quickly.
*Geeky technical analysis talk.

On their way to a justice of the peace to get married...
...a couple has a fatal car accident. The couple is sitting outside heavens gate waiting on St. Peter to do the paperwork so they can enter. While waiting, they wonder if they could possibly get married in Heaven. St. Peter finally shows up and they ask him. St. Peter says, "I don't know, this is the first time anyone has ever asked. Let me go find out," and he leaves. The couple sit for a couple of months and begin to wonder if they really should get married in Heaven, what with the eternal aspect of it all. "What if it doesn't work out?" they wonder, "Are we stuck together forever?" St. Peter returns after yet another month, looking somewhat bedraggled. "Yes," he informs the couple, "you can get married in Heaven." "Great," says the couple, "but what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?" St. Peter, red-faced, slams his clipboard onto the ground. "What's wrong?" exclaims the frightened couple. "Geez!" St. Peter exclaims, "It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it's going to take for me to find a lawyer?"

Why Single White Women Vote Overwhelmingly For Democrats
Finally, and perhaps most saliently, single white women see Big Daddy State as a beta provider husband substitute. This has nothing to do with pity for the downtrodden masses and everything to do with “how much money and services I can redirect my way with an assist from the white knight contingent”. The single white woman who delays family formation finds herself battling her ancient subterranean limbic rhythms which always and everywhere guide her to seek out potential mates who could provide resources for her and her children, particularly when she is burdened by pregnancy and mostly unable (at least as would have been the case in the ancestral environment) to fully provide for herself. The single white woman, lacking the beta provider hubby (ironically, mostly by her own hand) seeks to fill his absence with the alternative — the looming Big Man tribal leader, which in modern America is the federal government, and its shaman is Obama. Women are naturally redistributionist because women are naturally self-aggrandizing and self-entitled, as befits their higher reproductive worth. And, more controversially, a very bad man like myself would say that women are naturally comfortable in quasi-harem arrangements, which is what the single woman concubine-government alpha provider relationship amounts to. And just like an alpha provider/protector, the government is very good at forcibly extracting tribute from the beta male masses.
On this last factor, the American growth industry of single moms is certainly pushing the country in a more redistributionist direction, because no demographic outside of blacks, gays and Hispanics ismore generally and reliably pro-government handout than the single mom with kids to feed and no dad around to help out.

The Highest of Low Standards: How 'MST3K' Picked Movies to Mock
Frank Conniff, who joined the show as a writer late in the first season and then joined the cast as TV’s Frank in the second season was given the job to select these movies. During his tenure (through the sixth season) they made fun of movies like Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Teenagers from Outer Space, and most memorably Manos: The Hands of Fate. “I think I was given the job because everybody else was busy with other stuff.” Conniff recalls. The job was particularly difficult because for every one movie that made the show, he had to watch approximately twenty duds. He couldn’t skim either. During the second season of MST3K they got the rights to a film that they had only skimmed a part of. When they sat down to write the show, they discovered that there was a violent rape scene towards the end. The movie, Sidehackers, stayed in, and the cast just had to explain to the audience why the female lead suddenly disappeared.
