Remember Bullman, for evasive manuvers in a P-47, you ran around in the cockpit. It was about the LARGEST single seat fighter ever built in the WWII era. It also carried a radial motor from a bomber (don't remember which one) which was why it was so large.
Just remember, "Ain't no replacement for Displacement". Too bad the German Luftwaffe was the first known hot-rodding use of nitrous-oxide.
Yeah, the Nazi's had spray on a lot of their aircraft. Made good use of it at times. It's code name was operation HA-HA (not joking on this one!)

Coincidence notwithstanding, I'd like to pay a Memorial Day homage by using BB60 - in honor of the USS Alabama in Mobile Bay. Her respectable 16"/45 cal guns served our nation well.

Eng15etc, don't sweat (pardon my horrible pun) that fallacious numeric coincidence. The Dungeon Linguistics Team, together with the Dungeon Numerical Analysis Unit and the Dungeon Historical Research Battalion (damn - everybody is piling in on this action!), have long ago concluded that the "666" shtick that concerns you is in fact a "false positive." Your 151515 handle actually adds up to 18, not 666. Eighteen is a magical number within the 10-Ring sphere; it is the age at which a foxy lady becomes eligible to be a Lagoon Hostess!

they're all pretty.. one looks like Howard Hughes's racer from The Aviator.. and of *course* i was referring to Mrs Bullman.. and room for the sveltelet on *her* lap.. ::shaking my head:: you boys and your imaginations...

when i was just a kitten i used to like those Cox tether-planes (back then "radio flyers" were expensive and only for big kids), my first one was "Miss America", a stars-n-stripes P51, then i got a Corsair (the chrome-silver one).. i loved them both..

and ya displacement rules but small cranks make it happen! i've had a couple big-blocks in my day but never resorted to "the bottle" .. that stuff's like meth for engines, win the race but lose the car.. or the war as it were..

not surprising about the Nazis (never knew that though!), since Hitler was the original tweakmeister and he shared the joy with his troops.. guess he didn't want his planes to feel left out.. excess forfeits all gains?? someone on this board quotes that.. though it does sound funny tumbling from the lips of a 10-Ringer

i still wanna know what kinda fan engineer's got on that 'Lambo..

and ya uncle yer good to go i think.. all cross-compliant and ready for G33's time-space disast.. i mean revolution.. 350x10.. that 's alotta chevys.. or alotta 'tenners

That would be THE radial engine, The Pratt Whitney R2800. The Corsair, P-47 and the F8F Bearcat all used that motor in one incarnation or the other. later models of the corsair and thunderbolt had water alcohol injection to help them out at high speeds, instead of the funny gas. the bearcat was probably the evolution of the fighter plane equipped with the R2800. The P-47 was large no doubt, lots of ducting back and forth through the fuselage for the turbo supercharger, which sat behind the pilot. The Bearcat was the designed as the smallest possible airframe around that engine. 18 cylinders of air cooled radial engine. 2000 plus horsepower.;f

Actually, the turbos are direct engine mounted. The Dungeon crew mechanics, after careful calculation and testing, realized that there was sufficient horsepower for speeds into the 200+ mph range. These needs were identified as absolutely essential for express deliveries to the Penthouse. (Ohhh, how I LOVE the view when I get to drive delivery to the Penthouse) Therefore, and to accomplishment of Penthouse express orders, the attachment you see on the vehicle is a cleverly disguised, refrigerated, extra capacity beer keg.

[sigh] The Penthouse. Ohhhh myyyyy.

(i just adore a) Penthouse view..

i thought that turbo looked familiar and yes Lamborghinis are kinda like Glocks, not much room for improvement.. but that's a *normal* cap keg by Penthouse specs, dahling.. and yes, the view from here is divine, isn't it? The 10 Ring

G29 and I have noted that Sir Rabbi has an amazing number of posts--somewhere in the 600s. We thank him for this communication effort given all his duties?;P ;f

Talk about nervous, it is getting down to the wire here. The waiting is getting unbearable, and have considered trying to jar her lose.;f Doc said if she is not here by the 8th of June, then he is going in after her cause she is just getting so big. She is sizing up to be a 9+, maybe even a 10, which is her daddy's favorite number after all;f

Congrats rabbi on the 600 post mark, I just passed Tazz myself, almost to 300

Yes, we are pretty much there, got a boarder put up in Sarah's room, I have assembled all the new baby furniture and Mrs. Bullman (TSLJ) has stocked the changing table with all the diapers we received at the showers.

We are ready.;P

I'm getting the message here that Mrs.Bullman (the soon again to be svelte etc) is MORE than ready !

note to susan28....
The German usage of NoX was for evasive & emergency usage only. If a pilot activated his system, he had to have a REAL good reason, a ton of paperwork to fill out & the more bullet holes in the fusalage, the less hell he caught for using it.
The problem isn't so much the accelerated wear & stress, but rather the thermal shock to an already hot motor.
and NO, my alpha-numeric has nothing to do with chevy.....Can you say VihtaVouri N350 & 10MM ? This is the ultimate shooters cocktail !

so although the NoX was heck on the BloX it occasionally spared them from hitting the RoX but even the aces got put in their places at paperwork time.. some things never change..

i see i hit a hot button with the chevy comment, sorry 'bout that i love saying "VihtaVouri" but i'm not a reloader (yet) so not up on the numbers but sounds like yer a heckuva bartender..

and sounds like you're all ready, Bullman!

Permit this lowly Dungeon Denizen to add to this list: The Grumman TBF Avenger. While the 10mm types are understandably focussed on the hot fighter designs, we of the old slow .45 caliber crowd feel an affinity to that classic navy torpedo bomber. After all, if you want to sink a 68,000 ton battleship, hot fighters are NOT the optimum solution!

note to susan28:

Be informed that puns, posting in rhyme, & posting in rhyming puns, may well be considered as a head start on an internship as a Lagoon Girl, as the properly warped sense of humor that is required for the job is usually acquired thru years of study & tutorship.
Since you already seem to posess this, perhaps an advanced course of drink balancing & assistance at Monkey DNA removal procedures would be in order at this time.

Drink balancing refers to the ability to carry 2 Manhattans, at the same time, without spilling either, as the proper Manhattan for uncle is made with Segrams "Crown Royal Special Reserve" & Tribuno sweet vermouth, a delightfully tasty & smooth combination. Did I mention that they are approx 1 liter size, & served straight up ? Also, they must be brought to uncle in a timely fashion, so as to permit drinking them before they get warm.(remember, straight up, not on the rocks)
A schedule for this advanced training will be forthcoming, after the variouus required facilities are arranged thru the kind S.Rabbi & his highly efficient & talented staff.


uncle albert


P.S. here....

I am also avaliable for private lessons in proper reloading procedures & techniques, & my fees are MOST reasonable.

The 10 Ring
very nice, Rabbi. this would be ideal for a family man such as Bullman, having dual cockpit and even a turret for the lil ones (how delightful!). and it does seem to possess enough firepower to successfully engage one of those big ice cubes should the Borg consider its alphacentric i.d. provocational while cavorting with G33's Pirate Fleet in the inner atmosphere..

however - in the interest of diplomacy - i might suggest the following 10-Ring-style solution: the TBF for "family outings", and Bullman's choice of HF's for escorting G33's fleet on diplomatic "missions" to the Lagoon..

and those Manhattans sound exquisite, uncle.. however, one should beware of Lagoon Girls bearing drinks, lest one go to sleep in the Penthouse and wake up in the Dungeon! the best way to avoid this is to teach by example (lest one be accused of lack of empathy), and to that end i'd be happy to help field-test your procedures.

ever seen one standing on two separate cases of coke bottles whilst balancing a drink in each palm? it's a goodie, providing both entertainment and practical training.. works on cabana boys as well but they're not as good at it, having, as they do, a higher center of gravity..

here are your drinks, uncle.. these low-cap glasses were all i could find on such short notice, but i think you'll find they pack quite a punch..

Dearest G33:
Do not worry about Dear Rabbi having the lead in post counts in this thread. It is part of his silver tongue charm and administrative duties in service to the Penthouse elite.
Please focus on work and buying more 10mm guns for us.

Dearest G29,
A 10mm owner should own first place in the post count!
Just cause you and Sir Rabbi like The Chamber...
Hey Tazz!
What is up?
Why is Rabbi getting away with all this?
Thought we had him under control.
Really?!;P ;Q

*****foot

*****foot, which means a delicate, soft step comes from the imagery of a cat's careful tread. To *****foot is to proceed with caution, subtlety, and delicacy. The term is American in origin and dates to at least 1893.

On the other side of the pond, however, *****foot has a different meaning--someone who advocates prohibition. A *****footer is a teetotaler. This usage derives from William E. "*****foot" Johnson, an American prohibitionist who traveled to London in 1916 to spread the good word. Johnson claimed his nickname came from his "cat-like policies in pursuing lawbreakers in the Indian Territory." Johnson was proud of his nickname (either that or he made up the story about pursuing lawbreakers to cover up an embarrassing nickname). Fortunately, the English did not take him seriously and used it properly (i.e., derisively).
