Posted in: Darvish says Ohtani showdown in Seoul is nothing personal See in context

I remember when Darvish was considered the best pitcher on the planet. One of only two Japanese pitchers with more than 100 MLB wins. His best years are behind him, but I hope he can have a good season.

Striking someone’s back is actually the worst thing to do, it can cause the object to lodge even deeper in the throat.

@kaim, his family of idiots is father, mother, brother, wife. You obviously don’t know anything about this family, they’ve been saying stupid chit for years. And not Sr’s first arrest for DUI, but his 6th.

It wasn’t the nukes or the threat of the Russians that ended the war. It was the assurance that the Imperial House would be preserved. The US made this declaration two days after the 2nd bomb.

Posted in: ANA Boeing 737-800 domestic flight turns back due to cockpit window crack See in context

@RockingChair, that was not from a cracked windshield, it was from an improperly installed windscreen panel that separated from its frame. Completely different situation.

@garypen, there’s a speed and altitude restriction with a cracked windshield. At a lower altitude and a 250 knot wind on the nose, do you think the window is going to blow out. You might be right, but when I was faced with this situation, I was concerned with it blowing into my face.

Posted in: ANA Boeing 737-800 domestic flight turns back due to cockpit window crack See in context

This was a precautionary landing rather than an emergency landing. As the story says, one layer of the four cracked. There has never been a case where an entire window has imploded. Cockpit windows are heated and it’s usually due to a bad heating element. And this happens to Airbus planes as well.

@Patient, ‘surpassing most achievements’ of Ruth…what are they? Ohtani will have more ten win, ten home run seasons…what else?

I’m a big Ohtani fan, but saying he is surpassing most of the achievements of Babe Ruth is really pegging the ridulometer.
