Published: February 26, 2010 I hear where the writer of "DFAC meat market?" (letter, Feb. 19) is coming from. The ogling happens far too much. I myself am an extremely handsome man and have been told so by my mother, wife and other assorted females. I often walk into the chow hall and catch women undressing me with their eyes.
One tiny technical failure heralded the impending disaster. But the measurement error was so inconspicuous that the pilots in the cockpit of the Airbus A330 probably hardly noticed it. Air France flight 447 had been in the air for three hours and 40 minutes since taking off from Rio de Janeiro on the evening of May 31, 2009. Strong turbulence had been shaking the plane for half an hour, and all but the hardiest frequent flyers were awake. Suddenly the gauge indicating the external temperature rose by several degrees, even though the plane was flying at an altitude of 11 kilometers (36,000 feet) and it hadn't got any warmer outside.
In 1999, UC-Davis civil engineer David Phillips was grocery shopping when he noticed something peculiar. Healthy Choice Foods was offering frequent-flyer miles to customers who bought its products. But a 25-cent pudding would bring 100 miles — the reward was worth more than the product itself. Recognizing a good thing, Phillips bought 12,150 servings of pudding for $3,140, claiming he was stocking up for Y2K. Then he enlisted the Salvation Army to help him peel off the UPC codes, in exchange for donating the pudding.
Maybe it is because of the economic situation or perhaps a parking problem, but the Batmobile Smart Car seems like a great financial answer for the Dark Knight. The Smart ForTwo vehicle has got a great remake by George Barris, the maker of the original 1960′s Batmobile version. It has the shine, the coolness and definite appeal you would expect from Batman’s car, but I wonder about the actual room inside. Would it be enough for all those wonderful toys Batman usually carries around? This BatSmart vehicle was available on Ebay, signed by the maker and modeled with a few Catwomen models for show.
