I think the time machines came from the future or we'd still have them today. The jets were probably late 20th century. The revolutionaries wisely concluded that interplanetary fighter ships would have been overkill.

They're pretty cool. They merged them with time machines and now they can fly both forwards and backwards.

First hydrogen balloon

Following Robert Boyle's Boyle's Law which had been published in 1662, and Henry Cavendish's 1766 work on hydrogen, Joseph Black proposed that if the gaseous element filled a balloon, the inflated object could rise up into the air.

Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Jefferson

The first tethered balloon flight with humans on board took place on October 19, 1783


This 1818 technical illustration shows early balloon designs.


Of course, we all know we can't argue with stupid here while he is pretending to be smart (even with a picture), so this is for all the other readers.

'Totally unsuitable - the sooner he is gone the better': Farage leads calls for Britain's man in Washington be SACKED after leaked memos reveal how he called Trump's White House 'inept' and 'uniquely dysfunctional'



Nigel Farage has called for Britain's ambassador to the US to be sacked after it was claimed he had described Donald Trump's White House as 'uniquely dysfunctional' and 'inept'. Leaked memos obtained by the Mail on Sunday detail Sir Kim Darroch's assessments of the Trump administration from 2017 to the present. The publication of the comments is likely to spark a fresh diplomatic row between London and Washington and risks causing the government and the Foreign Office major embarrassment. The emergence of the remarks come just weeks after the UK rolled out the red carpet for Mr Trump during his state visit at the start of June.

He should be promoted. He's obviously one of the smart ones.

But Trump will huff and puff a trade war with the UK over this just when the UK will need free trade more than ever.

The Americans and British are direct competitors. Any trade deal that the Brits manage to cobble together with the Americans will consist of the Brits buying American everything without tariff and the Americans buying British gin and scotch without tariff.

Aided by a strong economy, Trump approval rises, but a majority also see him as ��unpresidential��
In 2020 matchups, Trump trails Biden but runs even with four other potential challengers. The electorate sharply divided between pro- and anti-Trump.

This poll is amended every couple of weeks. Gallop is pretty conservative about their polling methods, are generally not "sponsored" in this is likely a good record of Trump's general popularity.

Federal investigators have created a huge facial recognition network as Congress debates the accuracy of the technology

FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have access to more than 640 million photos in the driver's license records of 21 states for comparison in facial recognition searches, according to emails and other documents examined by The Washington Post. The arrangement hasn��t been approved by either Congress or state legislatures and is being questioned by both Republicans and Democrats. The documents show that despite debate over the accuracy of facial recognition, local officials often conducted searches on behalf of federal investigators with no more documentation than an emailed request.

Trump says the U.S. will no longer deal with British ambassador who disparaged his administration


In private cables that were recently made public, Ambassador Kim Darroch described the administration as inept, dysfunctional and unpredicatable.

"I do not know the Ambassador, but he is not liked or well thought of within the U.S. We will no longer deal with him. The good news for the wonderful United Kingdom is that they will soon have a new Prime Minister," Trump tweeted.

....well that could have been predicted..

Blustering bully always gets his way.

The next British Ambassador will likely say about the same sort of things. The whole world seems to know what Trump is about anyway, save a handful of the faithful who haunt the right side of this forum.

Anyway, The British should and will improve their security after this.

My money is on the ever playful Russians. Weakening NATO, then the relationship between the US and UK sounds like a pretty rational strategy to me. This is a new Cold War and a whole lot of our citizens aren't grasping it, yet.

Trump cannot block his critics on Twitter, appeals court rules
The case has implications for how elected officials nationwide interact with constituents on social media.


source: WAPO


the fact he wanted to block his critics....says al one needs to know about this tyrant.

and it ain't all that great..

One might ask the Trump supporters:

Do you support free speach?? freedom of the press??.....because if you do....then why on earth do you support the bully that would have these freedoms controlled..or even extinguished .....as they are a THREAT^ to him. What he calls fake news.....is the accurate reporting of his regime and his behavior and he won't tolerate that kind of truth.....facts. He creates his own reality ...one that is not a threat to his fragile and over inflated ego/psyche.

His simplistic supporters don't care if he ruins the country, the democratic system , international relationships... embarrasses himself f Daily --as it is all about money to them. ....and probably greed for the one percenters. Yes... money, jobs etc is important....but not at the cost of principles of a democracy........if a democracy wants to remain so.

Because MAGA!

OB, they want a country where right-wing white men make the rules, and everybody else knows their place and keeps it.

Or else.
