Even though these are ridiculous, its still the right way to invent and develop new military hardware and tactics.

The "Battlevision" for example became one of our more crucial parts of warfare today with surveillance and scouting options giving us one of the biggest edges in modern warfare today.
>>
>>680387704
Yes. And the science of it was considered "settled" much like the current fixation with global warming.
>>
>>680387706
>>680387704
It was part in due to the red scare about how nukes could modify human DNA and end all life on the planet, and part because most people didn't understand how atomic energy could be harnessed, so they would shudder at the thought of their hometown becoming Nagasaki. The Hills Have Eyes made a decent attempt to capitalize on that fear and paranoia.

Wow. Pretty deep when you think about it. Maybe people 60 years from now will think we were stupid... (/b/ pretty much proves that we are)

>>680387738
The "voice bomb" one was used with some success in Vietnam when troops would play recorded screams and wails of women in a certain pattern at night to demoralize the NVA who were superstitious about wandering spirits. It has an interesting psychological aspect to it that was prevalent in the era when the US was afraid of Reds and the world was still recoiling from WWII.

Yup. Plus it's would seem unneeded to make long range artillery firing >200mm rounds like that to be quieter, when it would be more beneficial to tanks and closer range AAA/howitzers and whatnot.

Love the old Magazine cut outs. The art is amazing, and I like how things looked when everything was going to be atomic powered. like the cars from Fall out 4 and stuff. Makes ya wonder what if Atomic power had taken off like all the old magazines and stuff showed what the would look like today.

The designs are so sleek and elegant, the chrome paint on everything and the prospect of exploring space was fantastic. It feels like a missed opportunity that somewhere along the lines, people settled for box shaped cars churned out in the same monotone way and people just grew accustomed to the same boring routine. I hope that with a revitalized space program from various countries that this drive reawakens in people.

Pretty much. Its like people lost all vision in the future and said fuck it. Everything was so stream lined and smooth. Now days everything is a block. Even the homes where Sleek, The Home of The Future looked really nice. Its sad, It does bring up the thought of what changed? It wasnt that atomic power didnt work, But something happened to go from these sleep pieces of art to where we are today.

Good point. Schools have a "right way" that kids need to follow, and any deviation from that gets punished rather than investigated. It's "get the right answer the right way" which is how schools have always been, but more recently they seem to be churning out cookie-cutter kids who all need to follow the line and suppress their creative sides otherwise they get called disruptive and have adhd. Some get a chance to have their creative sides looked at but it feels like most people are pushing for a safe path to a semi-secure future rather than trying to be adventurous.

It was based off the idea that people are more effected by the words of another human rather than mass printed paper. Hearing someone say that you'll be safe is more comforting than reading it.

Tires need to be deflated to drive over sand, and can burst in hot enough temperatures. Treads provide more surface area over a tire anyway so there is more stability when going over dunes and pits where sand can seep down.

What do you want, positive buoyancy?

>>680384172
Nope. The discoverer of an element gets t name it, Sir Humphrey called it "aluminum." Some fag later thought 'Aluminium" sounded better with other "-ium" elements, nd tried to change it.

>>680385236
OK, that would be "aluminum," then. Named that by a countryman of yours, btw.

I'll go easy. These retards are in a desert. They choose to put ass tons of water (with sharks) on the deck of a ship to evaporate rather than put it in an internal reservoir because they need seaplane landing space?
>>
>>680406932
google Tupolev Tu-95LAL. It was the experimental russian nuclear powered plane. Put it in the air with a few nukes on it and enough crew to have shifts and you'd only have to land when you ran out of food. The US had their own plans but didn't get to the trial phase.

the only reason they didn't go further is ICBMs rendered them useless.

It's just a funky concept by Stan Mott. Just a sort of bizarre shit that fits with the wacky ideas from the 50s-80s about the future.

Although, I'd wager that the way this guy was thinking, they'd plan ahead and now how much water evaporates in a day and use some sort of fluid that isn't water and doesn't evaporate. Although that's pretty outlandish, too lol.
