Ours are quite deep so I outfitted them with sliding drawers so you could actually get into them. It still requires a ladder, but it far less inconvenient that some other setups.
We use one side for gadgets and supplies we rarely use (the blender, my wife's huge water bottle collection, etc.).
The other side is long term storage of bulk basics with a long shelf life. Crackers, pasta, etc. When we run out of the read supply, we refresh from long term storage. When long term storage runs low, we stock up on more.

Royal Enfield made the WD/RE which was an air-dropped two stroke 125cc motorcycle of a more conventional design. Troops called it the "Flying Flea." They were generally sent in with airborne troops on gliders and were used to run dispatches and establish lines of communication. They were popular enough that Enfield made them for civilian use until 1950.

Broadcast television doesn't have a pause button.
Broadcast doesn't but most digital systems do.
Also a lot of digital mediums as switching back to a weekly structure. The Mandalorian did on Disney+. Invincible comes out weekly on Amazon. It makes for better social interaction about the show.

Whoever the engineers are, they don't understand aerodynamics very well. Airplanes take off and land into the wind. This lets them borrow airspeed from the local wind conditions. This means that runways are aligned with the dominant wind vectors at the airport. If you make the runways circular you can still only takeoff and land at two places on the circle set by wind conditions.
The only time this would be advantageous is if you build the airport on a site where the wind is highly variable. Even then, the air traffic control would be crazy.

Good luck with that photographer. The picture was taken of them on private property without their permission, selling it likely violates their personality property rights under Missouri law.

"Do genes control our height?"
Sure, genes control everything. As a more practical matter, significant changes in population height in the last century are almost always due to changes in nutrition not genetics. The most obvious place to look at this is Japan where increased meat and diary consumption in the postwar period has lead to the current population being inches taller than their parents and especially their grandparents.

My guess is that Leia and Lando infiltrate Jabba's Palace. Leia frees Han. Lando frees Chewbacca. Luke is the wheelman outside or extra gun if things go south after they get out of the palace.

The point is that things did go south and they never get out of the Palace. The original plan, whatever it was, is toast. Everything Luke does after that is just him making things up as he goes along because the plan is already blown.

Actually New 52 Aquaman was a serious makeover and was widely regarded as pretty badass. Likewise the adventure Aquaman used in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold was probably that series breakout character.

My first thought was to put in near Las Vegas as well. He probably can't put it on the Strip because of the expense, but he can get it close enough to the city that people will go. And Vegas has lots of cheap desert land within an easy drive.

Maybe he can get it close to Lake Mead or something if he wants scenic.

"It's clear that we'd save tons of money on our defense budget, which would give us the chance to handle many domestic issues which we never seem to have the budget for."

While we could certainly save tons of money from the defense budget, that likely will not translate to drastically increased expenditures for social services. Even at $600 billion, the federal government already spends more on Medicare and Medicaid than defense. It spends more on Social Security too. The money isn't there. They might be able to free up funds to keep Social Security solvent, but that's about it.
