The General Electric GAU-8/A Avenger is a 30 mm hydraulically driven seven-barrel Gatling-type cannon that is typically mounted to the United States Air Force's Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II. Designed specifically for the anti-tank role, the Avenger delivers very powerful rounds at a high rate of fire. The A-10 engines were initially susceptible to flameout when subjected to gases generated in the firing of the gun. When the GAU-8 is being fired, the smoke from the gun can make the engines stop, and this did occur during initial flight testing. Gun exhaust is essentially oxygen-free, and is certainly capable of causing flame-outs of gas turbines. The A-10 engines now have a self-sustaining combustion section; when the gun is fired the igniters come on to reduce the possibility of a flame-out. The gun is loaded using Syn-Tech's linked tube carrier GFU-8/E 30 mm Ammunition Loading Assembly cart. This vehicle is unique to the A-10 and the GAU-8.
Okay I need a little help with this one -- "fear there is no such" -- song lyrics? A poem? Something else? I just can't find anything that fits.
And Jesus Christ, is everyone and their fucking grandmother not getting their panties in a wad over Donald Sterling? Who by the way, is refusing pay the $2.5 million dollar fine imposed on him by the NBA. My thought would be either ban him for life (which they did) or fine him $2.5M.... but not both. And before anyone gets all pissy and calls him a racist asshole, remember two things. First, he's a Jew himself, and second he's not racist as he explained to Anderson Cooper during an interview. Personally, I'd be more concerned about the Linda trip wannabee asshole who released the private tapes to begin with.
Nothing to see here, just a baby rhino taking a mud bath for ther first time. Try to catch that on your Google Glasses.
Suave is a brand name based in Chicago, IL used by the Unilever company in the United States, Argentina, Mexico and Canada. Targeting discount stores, the brand represents more than 100 products including shampoo, lotions, soaps and deodorant. Noting the rise of discount stores such as Walmart, in the 1990s Unilever -- which acquired the brand in 1996 -- instituted a broad strategy, called "The Power of Value" to use its Suave brand to sell a line of discount personal care products in contrast to its high-profile brands such as Helene Curtis, Calvin Klein and Salon Selectives lines.

On 3 April 2006, a US Air Force C-5B crashed about 2,000 ft short of the runway while attempting a heavyweight emergency landing at Dover Air Force Base, following a cockpit indication that a thrust reverser was not locked. All 17 people aboard survived, but two received serious injuries. The Air Force's accident investigation board concluded the cause to be human error, most notably the crew had been manipulating the throttle of the dead number two engine as if it was still running while keeping the live number three engine at idle. The situation was further worsened by the crew's decision to use a high flap setting that increased drag beyond normal two engine capabilities. The aircraft was a complete hull-loss and the airframe scrapped, but the forward fuselage became a C-5 AMP test bed.
THX Limited is a high-fidelity audio/visual reproduction standard for movie theaters, screening rooms, home theaters, computer speakers, gaming consoles, and car audio systems. The current THX was created in 2002 when it spun off from Lucasfilm Ltd. THX was developed by Tomlinson Holman at George Lucas's company, Lucasfilm, in 1983 to ensure that the soundtrack for the third Star Wars film, Return of the Jedi, would be accurately reproduced in the best venues. THX was named after Holman, with the "X" standing for "crossover" as well as an homage to Lucas's first film, THX 1138.
