The SR-71 was a beast of a thing, send a ballistic missile after it and all the pilot needs to do is open the...

Re: another Darwin award candidate

The scale of the USA justice system problem is something I became aware of by watching the documentary 13th on Netflix.

Re: another Darwin award candidate

Re: ABS Defeat Switch

Nope, not a single human alive on the face of the earth is able to do what ABS can do.

Can't think of a single positive thing to say about it other than: at least it isn't a Harley.

I can recommend watching the Netflix documentary 13th.


It might give you a better understanding of the reality of life in America.
