    The military sure gets the new useful inventions 10-20 years before anything is sold to the public use, if ever. The drones are a good example, for instance.

    No market for an airplane that doesn't have seating space or room for much cargo.

    It's in the safest place should the sh#t hit the fan...

    Chosen for its geopolitical and geological stability, ahead of other candidates like Malta, Norway and Qatar, the idea is that the Tasmanian site can cradle the black box for the benefit of a future civilisation, should catastrophic climate change cause the downfall of ours.

    Yeah I've learned that over the years. I have a compact Yanmar 30 hp tractor that does a good job clearing the snow, (until "helpers?" compress the snow by driving over it sixteen times before I get to it), into 4" of ice. o_O I don't usually worry about 'powder snow' turning slushy until April ! You couldn't make a snowball or decent Snowman up here if you tried.
    It's the 16 plus inch snowfall that makes me break out the 60" wide 22" tall snowblower.

    We have so much water in the occasional snows we get, that when we make a snowball, it is as hard as cannon shot. It'll knock your brains out.
