    Yes, I saw some children playing with a quadcopter while I was ridening my pedelec home. None of them wore c-19 masks or other protective gear. Weird, I thought.
    At the same time, in another place, a few tons of nitrogen evaporated peacefully.

    And the POTUS looks like a negative film panda, wears high heels and has mold on his head. He does not drink but walks like, talks like, looks like, thinks like a stage 45 alcoholic.



    We live in interesting times. Most of us.

    USA: The Nation that Committed Suicide

    -- or --

    How a once-great nation was unable to face the Perfect Storm of a deadly pandemic, civil unrest and the non-leadership of incompetent and corrupt sociopaths, and began eating itself until it choked on its own bones.

    Yeah. I only like the quiet rocket motors.

    Are you sure? Where's it going to get all the tableware?

    Just spelling it is challenging enough. Much less pronouncing it.
  5.  
    The French "je" works well there.

    Isn't that what the Czechs call "ř" as in Dvořak, which is utterly unpronounceable unless you are born to it.

    I had the same vague memory but Wiki told me that was Przewalski. I don't know if they were related.

    the Xrz (where X is a consonant) is very prevalent in Polish. A good friend of the family spelled her surname beginning with "Wrzl.."

    Problems in English arise when the various diacritics are left out for typographical convenience. The name of the guy who invented "Polish" notation is "Jan Łukasiewicz", where the stroke-l is pronounced as English "w". Same for the stroke-l in "Lech Wałęsa" (va-weh-sa) or the movement in Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an exhibition", "Bydło" = "bid wo" = "cattle", often used pejoratively to mean "peasants", "sheeple", etc. It does not, contrary to numerous professors of music, mean an "oxcart".

    Wałesa here is generally pronounced "Va-wen-sa". I don't know how correct this is.

    Starship must withstand a pressure in between ~6 and ~8.5 bar strength; A ~6 bar is needed for orbital flight and ~8.5 bar is needed for crewed flights.


    850 kN/sq m: not a small pressure for a tub that size.

    I fear that their soda-can approach and reusability are incompatible a risk factor.
