I think I'm pretty easy to detect, I either talk about JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Ponies or the NFL -- oh, and passive aggressive tweets to GC. =P

It amuses me because one of the first prototypes had to make an emergency landing in Laredo some years ago due to, you guessed it, smoke due to faulty electrical system.

The only thing missing from the Dreamliner fiasco is the lack of of square windows and punch rivets.

Seriously, the whole problem with the Nightmareliner came from the pencil pushers and board members at Boeing. Let's bypass the Union as much as we can. Lets give out the manufacturing contracts to other companies in other countries. Japan, China and Indonesia get to built different sections. Avionics and Flight Control to Germany, Italy and France. Let's ferry all these parts back to Everett and assemble them there.

And for all that, you get sections with misaligned holes, fuselage sections that varied in size by as much as two inches, delaminated sections that couldn't even be used and had to be scrapped, alloy parts that were the wrong alloy or flat-out counterfeited, and untraceable inspection stamps that didn't seem to belong to anyone.

Hooray!

It isn't like it is impossible to build aircraft parts in different locations and assemble them, look at Airbus, who has been building aircraft in multiple locations for decades (for example the Concorde was built in France and Britain, the A380 double-decker is built in Britain, France, Germany and one other country that I can't remember).

Yeah, it's possible. But Boeing fumbled the whole thing from the start.

And Airbus has more experience dealing with subcontractors than Boeing, and uses a stricter standard -- Boeing, in this case was going for the whole bottom dollar deal, it seems.

Although all this is just extra fuel to the battery/electrical problems they've been having.

I kind of expect the dreamliner being to boeing what the dc-10 was to mcd

Apparently, I -am- in his "Who to Follow"

which makes me wonder how the hell I even appear in their list to begin with.

My suggestions are mostly just writers and publishers - probably because I follow a bunch of them, and only follow one wow-related account (GC).
I don't play WoW any more.

If I followed the people who are in my private lists I'd be afraid what my suggestions would be

I have a sneaking suspicion that Pratt & Whitney may be run by the Illusive Man.

I could hear them testing reaper weapons all day today.

So, who's playing Miranda then? She got the same "upgrades"?

A road tunnel in Norway has been closed - by a lorry-load of burning cheese.

About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week.

The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.

The tunnel - which is said to be badly damaged - is likely to remain closed for several weeks, they added.

"We can't go in until it's safe," geologist Viggo Aronsen told Norwegian broadcaster NRK.

Police officer Viggo Berg said the high concentration of fat and sugar in the cheese made it burn "almost like petrol if it gets hot enough".

They should call it Burnmost rather than Brunost then
