Video shows the monstrous B-1 Lancer Bomber conducting carpet bombing bomb runs, low flybys and more during military demonstrations.
Nicknamed “The Bone,” the B-1B Lancer is a long-range, multi-mission, supersonic conventional bomber, which has served the United States Air Force since 1985.
For more than 30 years the B-1B Lancer has proven itself as an essential part of America’s long-range strategic bomber force. Capable of carrying the largest conventional payload of both guided and unguided weapons in the Air Force, the B-1 can rapidly deliver massive quantities of precision and non-precision weapons against any adversary, anywhere in the world, at any time.
Chick-fil-A is regularly ranked as one of the most popular fast food restaurant in the country — with some of the best customer service in the country. A viral video shared Friday shows one of the reasons why.
The video shows Chick-fil-A employee Dontarius Jamel Young singing ‘Proud To Be An American’ on Veterans Day in the dining room to a transfixed audience of customers who erupt into applause after he completes the song.
Live-fire from aircraft, a submarine, and land-based assets including High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, and Type 12 Surface-to-Ship Missiles sink the decommissioned ex-USS Racine (LST-1191) July 12 off the coast of Hawaii. This test is part of the Rim of the Pacific 2018 exercise.
Every summer, amusement parks across the country compete to lure visitors with bigger, faster, and more terrifying thrill rides. This year, Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey is hoping that people will actually line up to ride its new Cyborg Cyber Spin that churns stomachs along three different axes.
Downhill skiers hit tremendous speeds as they race down a mountain, but it’s still not fast enough to outrun an avalanche. Fortunately for Maxence Cavalade, the parachute he was using to speedride down Mont Charvet in France carried him to safety and probably saved his life.
It’s worth pointing out that the avalanche was undoubtedly triggered by Cavalade’s snow-shredding antics—it wasn’t necessarily a ‘wrong place at the wrong time’ scenario. But, his terrifying aerial footage of the avalanche also reveals the tracks of countless other ski runs, so he probably he assumed the mountain wasn’t primed for disaster that day. (We have no idea if he tested the snow for avalanche conditions ahead of this run.) Still, the gamble paid off, whether he knew he was making it or not. I wonder what other dangerous sports could benefit from the addition of parachutes?
How many times have you accidentally given yourself a papercut after excitedly tearing open a delivery from Amazon? As Japan’s most resourceful knife maker demonstrates, those papercuts could be a lot worse if you spend hours painstakingly turning those cardboard boxes into a razor-sharp chef’s knife.
The process involves soaking the cardboard in water, repeatedly folding it over on itself, squeezing out all the moisture, pounding it flat, and trying to get the cardboard to dry as thin, dense, and stiff as possible. There doesn’t appear to be any liquid plastic resin added as a stiffener, but at one point the excess cardboard is shredded, soaked, and boiled, presumably to extract all the glues holding it together, which the cardboard blade was soaked in to improve rigidity. So while the results successfully slice and dice, this is the last utensil in your kitchen you’d want to toss in the dishwasher.
Colombia destroyed the remains of a cable bridge that partially collapsed earlier this year.
The Chirajara Bridge is located on the road that connects Bogota with the city of Villavicencio.
Some 200 kilos of explosives, 3,000 meters of detonating cord, 30 detonators were used in the implosion. Eleven experts supervised, reported the local group overseeing the work, Concesionaria Vial de los Andes (Coviandes).
What did Honda’s super-fast Mean Mower need? More power, of course.
The Japanese manufacturer, also known for its cars, jets, motorcycles and marine engines, wants to reclaim its title for making the fastest lawn mower in the world. The original Mean Mower could hit 130 mph and set a Guinness Book record at 116.575 mph in 2014. The current record-holder, a modified Viking mower made by a Norwegian group, hit a top speed of 134 mph a year later.
Honda’s U.K. division and Team Dynamics are working on Mean Mower V2 and targeting a top speed of 150 mph. The new riding mower, a modified Honda HF 2622 lawn tractor, will have almost double the power of the original Mean Mower, using a 999cc four-cylinder motorcycle engine that generates more than 190 horsepower at 13,000 rpm.
And yes, the Mean Mower will still cut grass. The previous model was able to mow the lawn at speeds up to about 15 mph. Mean Mower V2 will sport carbon-fiber blades powered by electric motors.
