Well, at least that one isn’t in orbit….
Well the girls got the metallurgical bit down, now for power…Ready for Red’s touch!
If NASA had known about this they could have saved a bunch of dollars they threw at Musk to intercept hat comet.
Probably cooked up a tungsten alloy; gonna need diamond bits. I suggest a core bit to take samples and check for whatever exotic propellant might be turking, I mean lurking, inside.
“Well, at least that one isn’t in orbit” — Yet. The day is young. Happy Thanksgiving y’all!
Or enough route to deflect an asteroid.
Turducken Steel …
Okay! A new armor formula that may even smell good.
That is if Turducken Steel is light (if the recipe is similar to some past efforts).
If it is heavy and its mass has been transformed to a mass greater than depleted uranium, we may have found a replacement for the projectiles used in such weapons as those on the A-10 Warthog. A new age in weaponry may have arrived. A bit of further research in its metallurgical characteristics are needed. How to manufacture to specification is one final actor. The chance of no more people exposed to the uranium let loose in the environment by such projectiles striking objects is a worthy effort should effectiveness be maintained. My sister was exposed to such an environment after the Iraq War(s). So personal self-interest is involved.
That is reason t be proud and hungry. Is Chinese delivery available? Food, for goodness’ sake. It’s not about the Chinese Party propaganda movie released in September that I mentioned yesterday, that is now the most watched movie of this year and maybe of all time. Those US forces who were at Chosin and historians have a different view on much of the movie. They all get that it was frozen and bloody. Many died.
A great advantage over our perpetually underfed enemies when they carelessly charge at something they think they can eat. Typically, if there is something US forces have more than food it’s ammunition.
My advice to an adversary would be “Don’t present an American with a target rich environment.”
New lesson for the twins.
The gray cylinder is liquid nitrogen.
The red one is the acetylene.
breasts of steel… sounds like a low budget porn flick from the 1970s.
Weren’t all porn flicks from the 70’s “low budget”?
After the years, Zed should know to preorder Chinese take-out.
Damn! No turkey launch this year! ☹
Shouldn’t somebody be out in the barn teaching new girl all about Q?
The twins got some really good genes from Sam.
They’re getting close to getting more of her wardrobe too. 😉
May one and all of the DBD group and their family’s have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
JDAM? I think not. WKRPdam incoming. Be thankful.
Good to see some things never change…. happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
May all y’all’s Turkey’s be tender…
If nothing else, they’ve developed a non-ferrous substitute for iron alloys.
Happy Thanksgiving, CM and all.
I prefer to pardon the turkeys, my heart lies with the ham and yams.
Today from PDT: “A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!”
Either PDT has gone the way of Dementia Joe, or this is a coded message a la Q.
It would be the greatest of ironies if, by the time of the 2022 election SanFranNan has made herself President, the new House of Representatives elects the Golden One as Speaker who then proceeds to remove her and take her place.
That first line sounds like a reference to the ancient chinese curse “May you live in interesting times”
Especially the second half of it: “. . . , and attract the attention of powerful and important persons.”
More and more, I’m seeing that the apple(s) didn’t fall far from the Sam tree. And they haven’t even gone to engineering school yet.
Sounds to me like they’re more into chemistry and metallurgy than engineering…
Wishing all a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving Day today …
To CM, the founder of this feast, and to all the rest of the extended DBD “family”, may you all have a happy, tender and tasty Thanksgiving Day surrounded by YOUR family!
Happy Pig Out Day on whatever you choose to stuff yourself with.
I helped give out so many turkeys last weekend to the “disadvantaged” that I do Not care to eat one. Was going for Chinese takeout, but my daughter has obtained Salmon. HooRah! So I am thankful for this country and can still celebrate with choices.
Grilled Salmon, shrimp anf grits! Delicious!
Rib roast, asparagus spears, tots – tater and sweet , cranberry sauce (jellied).
Super recipe for the roast . . .
Food coma in 3… 2… 1…
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all at DBD!
Had ours last month but in the interest of fostering convivial International relations, enduring a second turkey dinner is but a small sacrifice to ask.
That, and the stores up here seem to think Thanksgiving is today with all the ‘Black Friday for a whole week starting on Thursday” sales….
God has blessed me in many ways, most importantly with a happy healthy family…
But I will add some things to my giving of thanks to include this simple toon which is so much more to me. Thanks to Chris and his oh so real created characters, and to the incredibly varied, interesting, and intelligent cast of commenters for the humor and enjoyment and education it all gives me.
Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
I second that. Cheers! Salut! Kanpai! Prost! Skål!
Nephew is smoking the turkey. Sister is making the gravy, cornbread cilantro dressing, cranberry chutney and chocolate pie. I made pumpkin mousse and broccoli, cashew, red onion, apple and pear salad with yogurt honey dressing. Sister-in-law and I chopped up vegetables to roast in about an hour, just before everyone else shows up.
As ever, we shall overeat on mucho deliciousness. But the wind is blowing right smart, so we won’t be dining out on the deck this year. Still gonna be a lovely Thanksgiving.
May you all have the same.
A Very Blessed Thanksgiving to one and all. Thank you Chris for not having a Sam turkey go into low orbit. I think Travis needs to teach the Girls the Fine Art of Que.
Hopefully he has a smoker there at the DD with Zed’s dinner.
Think High. 😉
Tomorrow should be interesting, one hopes . . .
Thanks’ all of you in the DBD ethosphere, for the well wishes! Back at ‘cha! It has been a heck of a year for me, so I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Keep up the wonderful job CM and know you are supported and prayed for.
Happy thanksgiving everyone!
Hey, let’s be thankful for all the Mom’s that tried their best every Thanksgiving, only to have the Turkey mercilessly reviewed, and all the past missteps brought up.
The wifey and I tried deep frying a turkey, and it came out PERFECT. (I can read, and most importantly, FOLLOW directions; engineers are genetically incapable of that. After all, they’d have to accept that someone knows something more than they do.) After the turkey was gobbled to rave reviews, my Mom announce with a smile that she will never cook a turkey again.
Thankful that yankee ingenuity isn’t completely gone : )
Ha Ha Ha Ha…That’s the way my mother would cook any wild game I brought home.
“You know that meat’s got bugs in it”.
For the tradition aspect of it
We used to call the ceramic/metal inserts for body armour ‘chicken plates’, looks like Sam’s gone and invented a Threat Level 38 turkey plate 😉
We had dinner with a couple who came here from Netherlands long enough ago to raise their children in AZ, a teacher from Wyoming, and a couple who operate a vineyard a few miles south of Willcox on the old hiway 666. Everyone had stories to stretch and embellish. Hope your team won the game.
They’re citizens now. There’s ‘Trump Won” signs in his fields.
Home for punkin pie.
Hoping for the best for everyone – – – Buck n Jeanne .
