I have always been in awe of these things. They terrorized the gauchos! They did, I don’t care what they tell you.
Can you imagine one of these after you? High performance killing machines of the evolved velociraptor kind. Claimed to be extinct. Let us hope to Hell that is so. I cannot be so sure. Mainly because, when it comes down to it, we don’t know squat.
Terror bird (Titanis walleri) with prey, artwork. This extinct, flightless bird lived in North and South America approximately 2-5 million years ago. It stood 2.5 metres tall weighed roughly 150 kilograms. It belonged to the Phorusrhacidae family of carnivorous flightless birds, commonly referred to as the terror birds. Like other members of its family, Titanis had a huge head with a large curved beak, powerful claws and tiny wings. The prehistoric horse shown as killed prey and in the background are Hipparion sp.

In it’s day, the legendary Denbeigh Super Chauvinist Mark VIII Saloon (my *true* dream car) was widely regarded as the high-point of post-war British automotive design, rivaled only by the Austin A40 Somerset for its singular combination of styling and performance.
Denbeigh Super-Chauvinist Mk.VII Saloon (T) The Super-Chauvinist retains all the beloved design of the Denbeigh .engineering practice. (R1) It has a truly robust hooter, excellent winkers and a first-class jack. (R2) Its performance is not torrid but beautifully matched brakes fade as one, and engine scream drowns all distracting sounds. (R3) Its leaking of petrol fumes is well nigh intolerable; luckily fuel is rapidly guzzled up by the engine before the driver can be overcome. Car and Driver March, 1967 p. 50

Joe Klaas, who died in February 2016 at his home in Monterey, Calif., at 95, was probably the most gifted writer of all Earhart researchers.

Cameron A. “Cam” Warren, former longtime member of the Amelia Earhart Society, may be still with us and in his upper 90s in Fountain Hills, Ariz., but my information on his current status remains nil.

He gained fame in Hollywood, and to many familiar with the Earhart disappearance, Mantz is known as Amelia’s technical advisor for her final flight — or at least that’s the popular narrative. […]

My buddy, the “fluke armed rock”
← This sequence is cropped (and looped) from the last 10 frames of the video captured on Sol 6 by a camera on the lander for NASA’s Mars Pathfinder rover. Not enough pixels, but still, mighty impressive. This evidence was discovered -way- back in the day by Tim Beech, Life On Mars. Well, it does seem to be moving, doesn’t it? Camera artifact? Maybe! Let’s FIND OUT! Is this why there has been no video on the rovers; and not bandwidth? We are, after all… watching this video. Which might even be of my little fluke-armed rock buddy, shown at the bottom.
