@Ryan: I think the priesthood clause works in a different way.
By entering the priesthood you show you want to stay away from real work, and you really, really like kids.
Either way, army is not for you.

I don't give a damn about "US citizens being treated like criminals". That's their government and their TSA who do that, get your courage and fight it properly.

I start complaining when those stupid methods are imposed abroad, an they are. We cannot do anything, just say "screw USA" and travel elsewhere.

@Sid: in the past the Vatican Astronomers came out with a whole bunch of idiocies about aliens and planetary discoveries. Not a very reliable source in the field, I guess.

The right answer to the pope's call would have been "Sorry, your friend is not here, old man. -click-"

The problem in high speed helicopter is not that the rotor can't give enough speed, it's that the two edges of the rotor have different speed.

While traveling aa given speed "S", one of the blade edges will travel at S PLUS RS(the rotational speed of the blades), while the other will be at S MINUS RS (the blade is traveling in the opposite sense, so speeds are subtracted).

When one half of your blade suddenly enter supersonic speed, while the other half is much slower, 3 troubles ensues:
- The lift of an heli blade is near zero at mach 1
- The lift of the two blades is strongly asymmetrical
- Shockwaves will tear the blade apart in no time.

That's why the maximum theoretical speed for an helicopter is around 500 km/h. That said, the speed record for an heli is around 400 km/h, so there is a small margin for improvement.

@KCanathema, @MadBiker Wolf

Yeah, just right when those yankees forgot the orders to let a car pass with max priority thru a post gate: they shot to death an allied secret service agent, his driver and wounded the hostage he just recovered.

Just the first one to come to my mind.

How could anything go wrong?
