It's got a long road ahead of it if it wants to equal the majesty of the greatest (IMO) sci-fi scene ever committed to film.

The last USAF flight of the mighty F-4 Phantom (the Greek AF still flies them).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT_gLtwAjBs

When I first moved to my current locale, the VTANG flew the Phantom. VTANG is tasked with CONUS air defense, so they practice often. When a 4-ship flight practiced a combat launch, most of Chittenden County put down whatever it was doing for the next couple of minutes until the thunder had abated. The F-4 is man's triumph of sheer thrust over aerodynamics.

In the school year of 1971-1972, I had the pleasure of living in the Montgomery, AL area due to Dad's (USAF Reserve) required attendance at the staff college at the AFB there. The high point of the stay was family day at the base, with the Thunderbirds flying a full show in Phantoms. Glorious noise.

Somehow, Mercedes-Benz got the Coen brothers to make a Super Bowl ad for their latest hyper-roadster. I wish I could afford this level of midlife crisis.

Wish I could also steal a scene like Peter Fonda. And yes, Steppenwolf is involved.

Oh dear. I know this is a few years old now, but Weird Al taking on CSN's Suite Judy Blue Eyes and turning it into a rant on corporatism ...

Bingo!

(I work with a guy who used to bring a copy of that web page up on his laptop in meetings. But only if he was sitting where the presenter could not see it, of course...)

Edit: Aargh! Word filter is mangling the URL. Well, you'll have to manually substitute the correct URL. Think "synonym for bovine excrement" bingo.

If you replace the %73 with an S it works, but this isn't exactly a workaround. :lol:

The link works flawlessly in Firefox and in Edge.  Chrome appears to be broken.

Now it's working in Chrome for me, too. I must have mistaken coincidence for causation (that it worked when I corrected the URL and failed a handful of times when I didn't must have been a coincidence)

Just waiting for my daughter to get through college. Looks like it will cost just about what her schooling will. Never been a huge fan of MB styling though. Kinda have my eye on a Jag F-type.

I actually thought that was one of the better commercials too.

The Oroville Dam's concrete spillway has broken about 2/3 of the way down, apparently due to poor maintenance.  The erosion is happening far enough down that it doesn't threaten the dam, but it's sure putting a lot of mud into the Thermolito basin and Feather river in this video.  Additional erosion will happen as water is now flowing over the earthen emergency spillway (which has never been used before since the dam was constructed in 1968).

P.S.:  Now the water is running over the parking lot next to the emergency spillway and eroding dangerously close to the dam, forcing them to open up the flow to the damaged normal spillway to lower the lake level below the overflow.  188,000 people have been evacuated from the banks of the river below the dam.

A Lancaster and a Mosquito (the only flight-worthy one on the planet), escorted by braces of Spitfires and Hurricanes. Ten Merlins in one small space. Haven't see so much WWII RAF since the Queen Mother passed away.

A 1/10 scale Saturn V launch. Scale means it's still 36 feet tall.
