FWIW Xeni I love the trademark 'impeached and manifestly unfit" prefix, always a valuable reminder, in some rosy future that’s what history books will say too.

No, Xeni. Lasers go Pew Pew. Missiles go whoosh.

This is why we need really stable geniuses in charge of things.

I wonder how many Americans we could insure for the cost of one hypersonic missile prototype?

ETA- assuming the numbers I pulled from some quick googling are in any way accurate:

  • cost of 1 hypersonic missile ~ $600,000,000.00
  • cost of 1 year of platinum tier PPO insurance for a 21-year-old American male (it’s more if you’re a woman, note: hold rage for a different discussion)- $8,787.00
  • number of insured people for the cost of one missile prototype - 68,282

Draw what conclusions you will.

Tonight the super duper missiles gonna find you
Shining like the sun
I’ll be having fun
Feeling like a number one*

Tonight the super duper beams are gonna blind you
But I won’t feel blue (pew pew, pew pew)
Like I never do (pew pew, pew pew)
'Cause I don’t give a fuck for you.

*(Not a Russian hooker reference. Honest.)

Repo Man - everybody dead

[Ordinary, everyday people] running into death just like soldiers run into bullets … it’s a beautiful thing to see.

Yeah…
No. It really isn’t, is it?
Unless you’re some kind of sick fuck. (Him, not you, obviously.)

Hey look over there! Faster than a speeding Covid. Combining the latest advances in smoke and mirrors with high tech diversionary overload, I crafted this little beauty with my own tiny hands - just when everyone was calling me a nogood asleep-at-the-wheel clown. Who’s crazy now?

No. Not beautiful at all. @docosc had the best response to that soundbite:

17 times faster, 5 times faster kind of fits in with hypersonic missiles as compared with high-subsonic cruise missiles.

However and that aside, Trump’s affect struck me as different – more subdued, even tired than is typical. Look at his eyes as he talks about the superduper missile.

Odd…Stormy Daniels called it a mushroom.

Should someone get El Presidente some action figures to bash together in front of the camera; so we can have a super-duper missile and kung-fu grip?
