Remembered Weapons


Ian McCollum, expert firearms historian of the Forgotten Weapons channel on YouTube, has a kickstarter for his first book, Chassepot to FAMAS, an illustrated history of significant French military rifles from 1866 to 2016. As it now stands, the kickstarter is at $521,418 of its $25,000 goal, and still has 11 days left to run.

If this kind of history interests you, you might want to check it out.

From the beginning of the second millennium BC, Hurrians seemingly took control of what had been the Assyrian city of Arrapha (now known as Kirkuk, itself a derivative of the Assyrian name) (full page upgrade):

Fury!


First startup and taxi of a Hawker Sea Fury restoration fitted with a Wright R-3350 in place of the original (pure unobtainium, by now) sleeve-valve Bristol Centaurus engine. The nose looks too short to me like this, but it looks more "right" once the cowling's in place. The R-3350 makes 4,000HP to the original Centaurus' 2550HP.



Tom Dwelle is giving me kittens. I trust that he knows what he's doing, and I know the camera deceives about perspective, but it still looks to me as though he is standing WAY too close to that prop for safety. Certainly far closer than I would dare to with the engine running.

And here's the complete history of the aircraft and the ten-year restoration project, and first post-restoration flight.

Gmail’s purchase history tool highlights just how much Google knows about you | The Verge

Google has been quietly keeping track of nearly every single online purchase you’ve ever made, thanks to purchase receipts sent to your personal Gmail account, according to a new report today from CNBC. Even stranger: this information is made available to you via a private web tool that’s been active for an indeterminate amount of time.
I'm sure this news will surprise no one.

We are being lied to about #Syria. Anyone who believes #unproven #assertions about #governments #targeted for #toppling by the #US-centralized #empire has failed to learn the lessons of #history. The #Syrian government had literally nothing to gain #strategically from using #chemical #weapons in #Douma, a battle it had already won, and knew full well that doing so would #provoke an #attack from the empire. Douma was #occupied by the #AlQaeda-linked #Jaysh #Al-Islam, who had at that point nothing to lose and everything to gain by #staging a #false #flag #attack in a last-ditch attempt to get #NATO powers to function as its #air #force.

Last year, March 30, the so-called "Great March of the Return" began. The protests calls for Israeli authorities to lift their 11-year illegal blockade on Gaza and to allow Palestinian refugees to return to their villages and towns.
Exactly a year ago - it was the bloodiest day of this massacre - May 14, 2018. It is well known that this war is financed by the United States:
The U.S. provides Israel $10.5 million in military aid each day, while it gives the Palestinians $0 in military aid.
Exactly a year ago, the United States made a gift to the state of Israel: the embassy moved to Jerusalem (as a symbol of the Israeli control of this city). The Israeli troo... show more
