  1. Chris, Thanks for the tire images. What still doesn't look right to me is the tread on the back of the tire. It doesn't look circular enough, it looks like the tread meets the pavement at too downward an angle. But I'll let it go as I'm now tired of this subject.
  2. It doesn't matter what someone knew or didn't know in 1963. I would like to know what brand of tire it is, so I would know not to buy one.
  3. What shadow from the front bumper? I'm talking about what looks like an obviously oversized back of the tire compared to the rest of it. But don't mind me. I'm apparently the only person here (besides John Butler, who thinks it's an alteration) who doesn't understand what he sees.
  4. What is a notch? Is it something that hangs down behind the tire (and in that photo looks like tread) and is not part of the tire itself? If so, in that photo wouldn't the notch be scraping the pavement?
  5. Can someone explain the front tire in Altgens 5? I've certainly never seen one like it.
  6. One night back around 1975 I was in the back seat of my brother's single-engine Cessna. My brother was flying the plane with his wife beside him. I looked back behind the plane, and saw a light, sort of like a very bright star. No more than a second after I saw it, the light shot straight up and disappeared. The weirdest thing about it was that something had given me the impulse to look back just in time to see it. And that's my UFO experience.
  7. One of the reasons I've never joined Facebook is the fear of having no friends.
  8. Tillerson wants to see some evidence that Putin is a war criminal. Tillerson must be like that Libertarian candidate who said, "What's Aleppo?"
  9. The Chilean Navy has released some very interesting video of a UFO observed near Santiago in 2014.
  10. I would say that today's Democratic leadership is certainly well aware that 1963 is still very relevant. Senator Chuck Schumer has all but publicly stated that Trump is risking assassination by taking on the intelligence community. To quote Schumer exactly, "Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you. So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.” Of course Schumer could have in mind something as non-lethal as a Watergate-type setup. But "six ways from Sunday" pretty well covers the gamut. It's not often that you hear something like this straight from Capitol Hill, before a new president has even taken office. But one thing seems clear. No one has to tell Schumer what the Deep State is.
  11. It's possible that the cop invented the passing freight train after seeing a shooter at the other end of the overpass, which he was certainly in a position to see. Perhaps it was his way of telling the perps that he didn't see anything, no way, no how, because of a big old train.
  12. "I knew that any fingerprints would be burned off when the shell was fired," Alyea said. "It didn't hurt anything to pick them up." Oh really? Even if it's true that fingerprints would be burned off (I have no idea), is it such common knowledge that Alyea knew it when Fritz picked up the shells to show him? Sometimes this case just makes me sick.
  13. FWIW Lucille Ball said that life with Desi Arnaz was hell. Nothing like on I Love Lucy.
  14. "It is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else." Teddy seems to exempt the president (like himself) for some reason. If it is also unpatriotic for a president not to tell the truth, then when is the last time we had a patriotic president? As I recall, President Jimmy Carter said that he would never lie to us. Right off hand I can't think of any lie that he told. Right off hand I can't think of any lie that JFK told. (Well, I believe they put out a story that the Chicago trip was cancelled because JFK had a cold. That may have been a little white lie. Which raises an interesting question. Did JFK himself know that a trip to Chicago was too dangerous, yet a trip to Dallas, which I believe he called a land of nuts or something, was full speed ahead?) Has there been any president since JFK, besides perhaps Carter, who didn't lie to us? I just wonder what Teddy would have to say about that.
  15. I thought the question was, was this woman named Hicks his wife in 1963. Carry on and don't mind me.
