  1. Don't improve stuff you've recently made, just make more new stuff!

    Britons were in trouble at various points in time before

    Deceive the Credulous; Become Fabulously Wealthy

    I chose to watch a Pewdiepie video and it actually didn't seem that bad tl:dr Lots of Youtubers and other random internet people are promoting/shilling an online therapy service that might not actually be therapy (at all) and could quite possibly be a scam.
  4. Some snooping going off background details shows me that it's the Saumur tank museum's derelict yard.

    General cars and vehicles thread.

    Some stuff I took this past weekend.
  6. Just a thread to post cool pictures that you have either taken or have come across. I'll start by posting some recent things I've taken, and will probably dump more stuff here on a regular basis.
  7. Is that a spotting or command vehicle leading in the first image? I don't believe I've seen or heard of that variant before.
  8. I've gotten two text messages today from random numbers asking if I would pledge to help stop the nomination of kavanaugh and end the GOP's abuse of congress. That's the first time I've gotten political calls/messages on my phone.

    General cars and vehicles thread.

    There was a girl near where I used to live who had one. Her plates read "SPOILD."

    Giant Squids and other Cephalopod Business

    "Scientists Gave MDMA to Octopuses—and What Happened Was Profound" Giving octopuses ecstasy produces similar results as it does in us humans, even though we have very different nervous systems. Link to the study
  11. To give your friends and family another reason to stay out of the water, here's a giant squid recently seen in Toyama Bay, Japan. This is one of the closest recorded encounters that we've had with a live specimen. Article and another video on the matter
  12. I first thought the image was taken somewhere in the Mediterranean theatre, but then realized it could also (more likely) be California. I assume the M4A2 could be found in use for training in the states, yes?
  13. Something similar that was posted here before, but too early to include T-80U and T-72B (dated 1977).

    Syrian conflict.

    It's kind of disappeared behind the downing of the Russian plane, but do we know what the French ship fired at and why?

    Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    I want to say that's CGI, and if it is, I don't see why they didn't just model it right all the way with how detailed and relatively accurate the rest of it is.

    T-80 Megathread: Astronomical speed and price!

    I don't believe T-80UDs are in service because all the stuff for diesel engines is in Ukraine, but the T-80U (and subvariants) and apparently the T-80BV are still around, with some BVs being upgraded to BVMs with new FCS, ERA, and other miscellaneous things. Loooser would know more.
  17. And they still felt compelled to slap it with Dual AGLs and MANPADS.
  18. We had wondered this before and came to the conclusion that it was likely a derelict from one of the past conflicts on the Israeli-Syrian border in Deraa (acquired after the fighting there.) The Russians just took it and a whole bunch of other vehicles back for their display.

    Name that AFV: The New Tank ID thread

  20. The Sherman is the heroic Texas Detroit ranger with his trusty Native American Slav companion T-34. The Panther is the evil rich land baron (no oil fields though), who terrorizes the plains with his notorious Panzer posse.
