Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

The F-35 isn't the fighter I'd have designed or approved for use by the armed services, but the Pentagon and the past three Administrations have wanted the thing so I guess we're stuck with it.

Personally, I think the F-22 Raptor is much better and I'm still a big fan of the different variants of the F-15 and F-16, but I guess the F-35 serves its purpose. I just hope the thing doesn't ever have to have its ass handed to it by an Su-35 or a similar Eastern Bloc fighter because the thing's been overengineered and underarmed.

My guess: probably not, but we here in the West and in the U.S. in particular love to design planes that have 8 million of the world's most cutting edge and sensitive computer components in the cockpits and go into combat with just five missiles and/or guided bombs.

I will forever be a fan of the F/A-18 hornet.

Me too. The Navy has hundreds of those babies, including the latest and most powerful version: the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. I'd put the Super Hornet up against the best the Russians and Chinese can manufacture and I think it'd more than hold its own even if the other planes are faster or bigger.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Boeing and the Navy are talking Super Duper Hornets, I guess Boeing is working on upgrades. I'm too lazy to find it in Aviation Weekly but there is an article that's a couple weeks old talking about it.

I've always thought Boeing's prototype for the JSF was the superior aircraft. Lockheed had the superior lobby.

Me too.

The classic F-18C is my favorite fighter ever. I think it looks better than the Super Hornet.

Nice guitar! Fender Strat?

Also, you should totally go widescreen. All the cool kids are doing it.

It's a Fender Jaguarillo.

And if I could afford a new monitor, I'd get one. In the meantime, old faithful gets the job done.

I get half credit!

Oh, I understand. I was playing. Do you honestly think I would be considered one of the cool kids? Nah. Not my style.

I used a CRT up until about 4 years ago, when I got a great deal on an LCD. A friend of mine used his CRT (19") up until last year, when I brought a trashed LCD back to life, and now he uses that. Use what works, as long as you can!

None of us are cool kids, J. The cool kids are over there. See? See where I'm pointing? Waaaaay over yonder?

That doesn't mean we're not awesome, though. Probably.

Jokes on them. In 20 years, when they're old and feeble, we'll have nerded up some kind of longevity elixir, and then we'll be stomping their asses at Bridge.
