    It all depends on what metrics you choose. The 109 certainly is a contender for the title if longevity and impact on the war is considered. It certainly was the most produced fighter of the war and the greatest aces of all time flew 109s. Without the 109 Germany would have lost the war in 1940. In pure performance the 262 was the best fighter of the war by a mile. Impact on the war I'd say Spitfire since it allowed Britain to survive in 1940... Yet without the 109 Britain wouldn't have needed the Spitfire so... It all comes down to the metrics and criteria.

    And yet the Spitfire was used worldwide longer than the 109... (P-51's and Corsairs longer still...)

    Apples and Oranges. Where as the Brits developed their dogfighters into better dogfighters, the Germans developed their dogfighters into interceptors, and the Americans developed their dogfighters into long range escorts.

    But everyone forgets that the Americans and British had wonder weapons, too. P-51H's, P-47M's and N's, P-80's, Meteors, , Spit 18's, Spit 21's, Tempests, Sea Furys, Spitefuls...

    Yeah... I don't get it.

    Basically people were selling their computer's run time and getting paid in a currency that doesn't actually exist. The more powerful your computer, the more fake money you got paid.

    But when people thought that the fake money was valuable, people did it so much that it affected the price of computer components. Now that the fake money is only a fraction as valuable as before, the price of computer components is dropping.

    Yeah... What's the return on investment?

    Depends on how much the cryptocurrency is worth. These days, not so much. 2 years ago, however, cryptocurrency was worth so much that the 1000 series of nVidia Graphics Card, despite being 50% the cost to manufacture of the previous generation of cards rose in price to at least double that. At least.

    These days with everyone and their mom having their own separate cryptocurrency, the fact that a LOT of the currencies go bust, and a LOT of them get totally hacked and made worthless, "mining" has lost its appeal. For the most part.

    The new Robin Hood. It actually started off pretty well. It seemed like a new take on the story with a heavy portion of Zorro mixed in. The bad guy actually seemed interesting and deep... And then it gave up the ghost by claiming the Catholic Church and its Cardinals and Bishops was working with the Muslims to give them control over England. What the fuck?

    Newish movie: Happy Death Day 2 U. The sequel to Happy Death Day.

    Happy Death Day was about a mean and bitchy sorority girl getting stuck in a groundhog's day time loop as someone murders her over and over again, and she has to figure out who it is.

    Happy Death Day 2 U has the same cast of characters, and setting. Basically it turns out that one of the ancillary characters from the first was messing around with a Quantum Mechanics Field Generator, and started the time fuckery. But trying to fix it all by fixing the generator causes further fuckery. It sounds repetitive, but it's not. It works and is very funny at times. Great movie.

    Which level of Hell is that?

    All of them.

    They still laugh at those tried & true classic cheeto & tiny hands jokes so they must be somewhat mirthfullllll

    They're not actually laughing. They see other people laughing and they are attempting to copy the behavior. Watch them real close. Listen, too. They don't know how to laugh. When they try to imitate it, they "laugh" at all the wrong things, and sound like robots attempting to make the sound.

    It's probably worth buying new shit for if you really like flight sims. Mid-tier ryzen, $300ish vid card, lots of ram, a stupid fast nvme drive. Get some cheap tablets to connect as instrument panels. I've got to get a new yoke/throttle/pedal setup.

    Don't even think about buying anything knew for MS Flight Simulator til we at least have a release date.

    A really cheap and good... if not the best... penetrating oil is one part acetone and one part ATF. sometimes you have to keep it agitated for the first few days but it works wonders. Kroil works good too for about 100 times the cost and it smells a lot better.


    That's exactly what I did. Got an oiler, and filled it with 50/50 acetone / ATF.

    aahh…...when I do those bearings, I don't use it there either. in fact, I don't use that stuff on anything...….

    Video I watched said to put it on. Costed me 2 bucks, and a minute's worth of time, so I did it.
