We'll just have to see how many parsecs it gets on the Kessel run. Until then I remain skeptical.

It's coal-powered.  It'll hit 13.5 parsecs max.

RonFilipkowski: This is very unsettling. 'Fox and Friends' is saying that the Russians have developed a fighter jet that flies at twice the speed of light! https://t.co/1FLphAXGWk

The funny thing about motion, fluid dynamics and a little E-M theory is how with a little math you'll know just about exactly where something likely would be from point of contact.

It's not hard to understand why the US abandoned outright speed and instead went to eliminating radar cross sections...

This is just a wag for the masses.

Meh, amusing, but kind of a non-story.  FOX people don't even know what happens to the sun at night, so it's an easy thing to forgive.

Fox and CNN both don't employ anyone with a brain. Neither network has anyone intelligent enough to say "hold on guys, that doesn't sound right."

372,000 miles per second is pretty farking fast for sure.  That means in can fly around the earth at the equator about 15 times per second.  Impressive.

Maybe the Rooskies used it to turn back time and get Trump elected in 2016?  It's as logical an explanation of how that happened as anything else.

I worked at a news station back in the day.  I did chyron and graphics work.  I was building the elements for a reporter and mentioned to them that some of their facts were wrong.

"you do your job and don't worry about mine."

My next door neighbor does weather for WSB radio, and WSB TV on Saturdays. How it is that the weatherman sometimes has to correct the news anchor and reporter, I don't know, but he's managed to get a few corrections on air.

But it was windy! (Despite little to no evidence of enough wind to cause that train wreck.) LOL

Wheras there was ample evidence that Trump was walking down a steep unrailed ramp on a damp day. And didn't fall down once, much less three times!

Give me a break.

Face it. Trump's going to be number 48, or 49. After Biden gets legitimately 25thed. Kamala gets in. Then the the Democratic Party picks her successor, then gets rid of her. Watch your back, Ms. Harris! You might be the least objectional one in the whole bunch.

That's farking laughable. You know who had no issues descending that very same ramp at exactly the same time? The General next to him. Trump walked like he just relearned how to do it the previous week.

I get it. We had a manager who screamed "best practices" all day long, even though the practices he preached of went out of date with Windows 2000. He would not believe in newer and better practices, and that is part of the reason he is gone and I am now in his role.

The ramp should have been conforming with ADA standards, which would make it 1:12. Tops. Trump's trouble was the 2.5 inch lifts he's got in his shoes, nearly tripling the decent angle for his puny brain. Which also explains why the General was not having similar issues.

Can't you just use your deconstruction beam to remove him? I'm fairly sure with his girth he's in the way of a hyperspace bypass somewhere.

For you, I fixed it.

Russia saying they have all these neat toys reminds me of when I was ten and I built a super-duper jet that could fly faster than the speed of sound. In my parent's garage. Out of cardboard and scrap wood. Oh, and old lawnmower wheels. Of course I couldn't use photoshop and 3d modeling to pretend I had all sorts of super tech.
