Man what a race and what a win by Ricciardo and Red Bull. Great call on the tires and pit crew double stacking the cars twice!
To bad a certain Dutch driver did two stupid things in the race, he could have won it if he wanted to.

But the United States in the 1930s did not know that.

Re: World War III, The 36-Hour War of 1948

There is an interesting combination of imagination and lack of imagination involved in "Part V." On the one hand, the idea of decentralizing the country (not very practical since it guts the peacetime economy) and the idea of fortified centers for launching a nuclear retaliation... But at the same ...

Re: Why the United states already feared war with Japan in the 1930s

In the 1930s the US created what were known as the color plans, the most famous being the "Rainbow Plans" that were created at the start of WWII. These included all sorts of scenarios, some very off. But since Japan had been in a massive naval buildup since the end of WWI and represented the only r...

Yes it is, there is also one published in 1935 called 1935 scenario: the Invasion of America which is about a a enemy invading the United States (by Germany or Japan), then in 1942 we have What If The Nazis Had Invaded America in 1942 after the end of World War II the scen...

Yes, but without modding there's not really a lot of point. So there is nothing beyond the Kerbal system of worth. Exploiting a physics bug, I have managed to eject a Kerbal all the way out to ~8,000 yottameters (8*10 27 meters, a distance that exceeds the diameter of the entire fucking universe) a...
