This kinda ties into a question I've had for a while now: why are "drones" the only thing being done with quad-copter tech? Why don't we have a "full-sized" quad-copter, with an on-board pilot, and cargo and/or passengers? Perhaps there's a physics-based reason?

I'm not real sure that the US and NK going at each other would start WWIII. I suspect that at least a large part of the world would join us in kicking NK's ass.

Yeah, he tied high up on the tree for leverage. I would've done the same thing. Where he made his mistake is when he started snatching on it. Never, NEVER snatch on something you are trying to pull. What happened here is exactly what happens: things break. Use a steady pull. For something like that tree stump, you may have to reposition the vehicle a dozen times, to pull in a different direction over and over, to finally loosen the stump enough to be able to pull it out. I've pulled up tree stumps many times that size, with a two-wheel drive Ford Explorer, powered by a V-6, with no damage to anything (except the stump...). Just use a little common sense, which isn't very common anymore, and this sort of thing is easy and safe.

All the "relaxed" pics are just as attractive as, if not more so than, the "posed" pics, to me. I'd much rather see the "real" woman, as opposed to the "staged" woman.

Why is it that some people seem to think that "God-fearing" and "good" go hand in hand? Some of the most corrupt, evil people I have ever known or heard about are "God-fearing". Keep in mind that Hitler was a devout Christian...

kalron27 While I admit that Load and St. Anger were pretty bad, they have at least somewhat redeemed themselves with Death Magnetic, at least in my opinion.

Its been my experience that the "beautiful people" are all too often very aware of their beauty, and use it as a tool. They try, and all to often succeed, to get what they want with their beauty, and it usually makes them into total, whiny little bitches when they don't get their way. Of course, there are exceptions to this, on both sides of the fence, but the ugly ones who act this way usually think that they are ravishing beauties.

squrlz4ever So Franklin was wrong, when he referred to the newly-formed government as a republic? Who's opinion are you really going to go on; a "modern" law professor, or one of the people who DESIGNED the American government? Franklin has my vote. You go with your "professor", if you'd like. Either way, its pretty clear that none of us are going to budge on this, so why don't we all amicably agree to disagree, and move on. I do appreciate the genuine, open discussion on this, with no flaming or name-calling (although you were starting to dance on the edge a bit, Squirlz, but no worries). So, Squrlz, how about a few cashews? <offers a handful of cashews in Squrlz's direction>

squrlz4ever Yes, I realize that we aren't "ruled" by the representatives; I guess that you could call it an expression. And yes, I also realize that the representatives are put there by the voters. However, as the post that started this discussion points out, the representatives gerrymandering practices mean that they are pretty much voted in and out of office as they choose to be. Ever notice how many representatives have horrible approval ratings, but still get re-elected, time and time again? They alter the voting districts, and the districts that the representatives serve, to ensure that the votes go there

squidbush I agree. Notice that I mentioned "freedom of expression" in jest?

normalfreak2 I've already said. A democracy is ruled by the people, while we are ruled by representatives. Yes, its an issue of semantics, but I still stand by my argument.

squrlz4ever Squrlz, you yourself said it, we are a "constitutional federal republic". That is a direct quote from you. Also, check out Mirriam-Webster's definitions. While the definition for "democracy" does, indeed, cover the type of government we have in the US, the definition for "republic" BETTER covers the type of government that we have. Also, Benjamin Franklin himself, when asked what type of government had just been set up for the fledgling country, replied, "A republic, if you can keep it”. Are you trying to say that one of the founding members of the US government didn't know what kind of governmental system was being enacted?

squidbush "Free speech" doesn't mean that your speech will always be greeted favorably; it just means that the government (supposedly) won't stop you from saying it. Him saying what he wants is protected by free speech, and someone punching him in the face is (kinda) protected by "freedom of expression". Yes, that last part is mostly said in jest.

squrlz4ever Sorry, Squrlz, but Faust is correct. The US is a republic. The basic definition of a democracy is government "of the people, by the people, for the people". Our government is "of the people, by the representatives, (supposedly) for the people". A true democracy is ruled by the people that make it up, while a republic is ruled by "representatives". You yourself said it: "more specifically, a constitutional federal republic."

5cats There is not enough information to even attempt to answer that. Yes, you could make a guess of "20", based on the fact that each presented generation is exactly 20 years apart, but it would only be a guess without further information. At least the one I posted has a definite, provable answer.
