Industrial trade magazines have the craziest ads. Aviation Week & Space Technology have the best: Do You Need Over-The-Horizon Kill Capability? Thompson CSF Cargo Launch! and suchlike.

Yea, its weird when we are inundated with ads for consumer products and see, what is basically a one page sales slick for a weapons system, in a magazine. Its a telescope into a strange world.

“Why yes, yes I do need over-the-horizon kill capability. Our Glorious Dictator demands a greater kill per dollar ratio. Tell me more about what Thompson can do for me!!”

Its like “Shit! were is the order form? Bill me later… check.”
