That picture is hilarious!

As long as Wilson doesn't throw a ridiculous lofty two point conversion that should've been batted and the Pat's secondary don't choose to slide because they are ahead, Brady is gonna get another ring. GO PATS!!!

Man, that is epic. The F-35 has insane air to land capacities and it is having so much money pumped into it right now, the end result will last a while. The T-50 is cool too, but I can't justify speed and maneuverability over not being seen. Plus, the T-50 can't shoot smart bombs or internal missiles at max speed which could be a hindrance. I love when people compare the F-35 and T-50 because their jobs are totally different.

I haven't, I'm really interested in aeronautical engineering and would like to fly some day. Only a teen so can't quite do that yet. I have gone to a few air bases which are always cool though. Any tips?

Also, you should read this article, I really enjoyed it. The F-14's were great for their time and the history behind them is incredible.

I don't care how many rings you have. I've hated the Steelers ever since Bill Cowher's ugly underbite scowl was coaching them, I can't stand Mike Tomlin, and I want to punch Ben Roethlisberger in his fat f***ing neck. Just everything about the Steelers is obnoxious.
