    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    The argument that we don't "need" stealth is like saying we can buy body armor that only protects against 5.56mm because we don't need expensive protection against 7.62mm AP rounds. The widows you'll be creating probably would disagree about that need for the best possible protection when...

    Helicopter/Cyclone discussion (split from HMCS Fredricton thread)

    Reading the recommendations as a layman makes it sound like that specific maneuver was not specified to the manufacturer when they made the software. That sounds a lot less like hidden code and more like "what else do we normally do that we forgot to tell them about".

    IST PLAR

    While helpful to understand the greater Signals community, I really don't think any of those will write off IST DP1 material. If you want to PLAR anything, you need a copy of the IST DP1 QS, and figure out if anything you did is actually on the course. This won't be done for you, they only did...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    If we're going to take massive casualties, I'm willing to bet the other side of the fight has done the same calculation and come up with similar numbers. Seems curiously like the MAD principles of nuclear weapons: As long as you have sufficient numbers of technologically similar weapons on both...

    Varsity Hockey at RMC

    RMC Hockey plays in USports against other Canadian universities. I dont know if there's a direct translation in skill level but it's the Canadian version of NCAA D1.

    Heat dome moves toward Alberta after shattering temperature records in B.C., N.W.T.

    Big balloon in the back, drop ramp, pitch up and loadie slices it open. Problem solved.

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    No deaths means you're living in a dream world and better get to work on that magic COVID vaccine that is 100% effective against transmission and illness. Till you figure that out, the rest of the sane world can reduce risk as much as possible while balancing out human rights of perfectly...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    Really? Because this looks like a pretty good sign. Vaccines have delinked rising cases from rising hospitalizations, which means no more misplaced panic or fear mongering needed.

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    If the vaccine doesn't stop COVID spread then it doesn't matter if someone is unvaccinated by choice, that immunocompronised person should protect themselves knowing their condition and wear a N95. If someone is immunocompromised they aren't just worrying about COVID, literally a rhinovirus...

    Too bad in the Federal government we treat 1 Official Languages complaint like 50,000 people have the same issue.

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Oh you've fallen into the COVID vaccine logic fallacy. This is a vaccine that doesn't stop you from carrying it and giving COVID to other people. It only reduces your own risk for serious illness or symptomatic illness. If there's no change to risk of contraction with the vaccine, why did we...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    That 2% number is high and only accounts for positive tests vs positive tests leading to a fatality. It also doesn't account for the age skew in COVID mortality which in Ontario has 59 and under as 82.1% of the cases but only 7% of the fatalities. ‘Significant underestimation’: Canada’s...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Could be better? It's upwards of 80% eligible first dose, and steadily rising above 50% 2nd dose. That's pretty good for a virus that had 80% of its deaths for people above 60 years old. Young folks and kids aren't rushing out to get it because A. COVID isn't risky for them and B. The vaccine...

    CDN/US Covid-related political discussion

    Won't is a pipe dream and unrealistic. As soon as we get rid of these COVIDZero crazy people who have somehow found thier way into positions to advise policy, we can get back to normal. If people want to live in fear of germs thier whole lives, go for it. But that is a personal choice and...
