اتتذكرين مرة اقتربتي فيها من الموت

Well, the closest time I felt this when I was still a flight attendant, we were on a flight on a day in which the weather conditions were very, very bad.
We had been in the air for just 15 minutes then the pilot reported that there was a partial failure in one of the plane’s engines and that we had to return to the airport again for an emergency landing.
The next 20 minutes after that were one of the most times I was afraid in my life and I felt that this was the end, it was a very bumpy ride, we were moving vigorously up and down in our chairs despite of our seatbelts, I was trying to act cool and not terrified to assure the passengers but I was really screaming inside 😅
Thank God we landed safely, but it was the worst landing that I experienced during the five years I worked as a flight attendant and the pilot himself then told us that he expected to fail to land the plane safely by about 70% .. this was one of the worst experiences of my entire life 😅

Your hybrid is like a EV did you buy cause it's better for the environment ?

> Your hybrid is like a EV
No, not exactly. A hybrid has two engines. One is powered by gasoline or diesel, the other is electric. When the fuel side is running, it charges battery packs which power the electric side. An EV is fully electric with battery packs that have to be charged externally. It does not have an engine but several smaller electric motors.
> did you buy cause it's better for the environment ?
It is a little more efficient so I suppose that helps. It really depends on your driving habits, etc. City driving can use less fuel but on the freeway, I haven't noticed a significant difference. On average, you can expect better mileage by 20% to 40% depending on vehicle. EV technology is still fairly new and more expensive. The average price for an Electric Vehicle is $50,000 to $60,000 and until the market adjusts (which may take years), I believe that a hybrid is a better option. Personally, I would not consider an EV until they reach price parity with conventional or hybrid vehicles.

If you have flown, what do you think of the general experience of flying? 🛩

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Oooo I love flying so much!
It gives me such a ‘pinch me’ moment to realize I’m so high into the sky. And when you fly during the day: there’s always sun since you’re above the clouds 😍
I also love the sounds of the engines so much lol, one of the best sounds in the world in my opinion. ✈️

I just wanted to ask how hard is it gonna be if you have amy idea. I read all about search engine evaluation but still I never tried any online job and I don't even have a bank account. xD

Muhamed162’s Profile Photoididn'tASKforthis
I don't know much about search engine evaluation myself, since the optimisation requires different skill sets.
BUT, what I do know about it seems to indicate that it's pretty straight forward and not that hard.
You just need to be able to manage your time and not let work consume all of your day.
It would be great if you had designated hours for work each day.
I think it will be better for your position to understand the basics of SEO and how search engines work, google especially, and be up-to-date about their algorithm updates and learn how to analyze SERPs.
(I can offer some recommendations on that matter)
As for the bank account, you don't need one. Just get a prepaid card and you'll be able to complete all your transactions with it.
Another important thing is to make sure that you're getting paid well. Know how much people in that position get on average and be sure you're not underpaid (a lesson I had to learn the hard way).
I'm sure you'll do a great job and wish all the luck in the world.
And if you need any help, I'll be here.

When did you wake up this morning?

klonetron’s Profile PhotoHalbery Jones
Actually slept last night but still woke up about 4AM.
The tender nudges and purring of my cat, eager for his morning snuggles. The sound of diesel engines starting as my neighbors warm their trucks up to head to the frac well. The light breathing of my beautiful, sleeping wife. A mild back ache. The rugged brrrrraaaaaapppfffsss of my surprisingly vibrant morning fart, and the smell of broccoli and graveyard dirt wafting from the depths of my comforter, as though a diseased and angered mallard had snuck into bed over night.
Woke up in the crabbiest mood because school wasn't canceled. First world problem. I then made the seemingly safe walk to school, and slipped in ice right in front of everyone walking up. Tried playing it off and slipped again. 3/10 morning with rice.
My SO and I are long distance so we try to facetime as often as we can. So much that we fall asleep together. This morning I woke up to her saying my name loudly to wake me up because my TV was on too loud and bothering her. It's not much, but I love that we are able to have semi-normal interactions like that.
I like that it's 24 hours so I don't risk waking up to an infomercial any time of the night. There is literally a late-night infomercial titled, Got A Turkey Neck? It's on all the time, at least where I live, on every channel. I'm 30. I don't want to accidentally wake up to that. I don't need that kind of terror in my life.
I ended up waking up and opened the blinds to find a light snow cover on the car in the driveway, a smell of stale cigs and looking at the alarm clock to see I finally got some rest.
The feeling of being loved enough for my fiancee to be out running the snowblower so I'd be able to easily get out of the driveway. We BOTH work.
The sound of my sink running. Our pipes were frozen last night so i cranked up the heat and left the faucet in the bathroom off my bedroom on. Didn't think I'd get to shower today.
My SO. She's beautiful, and last night was the first night she stayed over at my place and got to wake up to her face. She had to leave to go to Seattle for the weekend, and I miss her.
Thing that woke me first time: boyfriends alarm (he had an early meeting, I didn't have to be up that early so I went back to sleep for another half hour). Thing that woke me for the day: boyfriend putting our dog in bed with me to wake me with puppy snuggles right before he left so I didn't have to get up to my alarm.
My husband getting home from work and the dog excitedly running out of the bedroom to meet him.
Between 7 and 9 usually. I just naturally wake up in that timeframe. Also, I have designed my life so that I don't have to wake up very early in the morning (i.e. by an alarm clock), since doing so makes me actually hate my life a little bit.

Do you trust mechanics or have you been burned a couple times?

More than a couple of times. These young guys do not know jack about mechanics i.e. fuel injection, combustion engines, computer electronics, transmissions, etc. Hell, they can barely change the oil or repair a flat tire without screwing something up. That is why a repair that should cost $200.00 often costs over $1,500.00 because these inexperienced mechanics believe that the way to troubleshoot a problem is to keep replacing components until the vehicle starts operating properly and the excessive cost of labor and parts is passed directly on to you, the consumer.
Luckily my friend is a master mechanic who has been working on automobiles for over 50 years and can literally repair anything and he only charges me for parts and labor directly related to the actual failure which is completely opposite of what the thief's at the local car dealerships do.

If you drive, what's the habit of some drivers that grinds your gears the most? Do you often have to deal with wreckless people on the road? 😡🚘

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
The thing that bothers me most these days, and I expect I do it as well at times, is when people sit in their car, parked up, going nowhere with the engine on. That’s what gets to me the most. If your engine’s on, then drive the bloody thing! That’s what I feel like shouting at them.
Sorry for the rant :)

only criminals use the dark web honest people dont need it

"Dark web" and "deep web" are used interchangeably but they are not the same. "Deep web" refers to anything on the net that is not indexed by search engines on the "surface web" (which is what you'll see in your typical web browser). "Dark web" is a smaller subset of the "deep web" which is accessible through the Tor browser. It can be used for illegal purposes but monitoring and infiltration by "white hats," law enforcement and their allies are aware of the issues and it would be unfair to label all "dark web" users as "criminals." Do not assume that "black hats" or others with questionable intentions exist only on the "dark web." The are bad actors in every percentage of internet users:
The "deep web": 96% to 99%.
The "dark web": less than half of "deep web" users.
The "surface web" (also called "normie internet"): around 4%.

Every car have atleast 3 different options. Full option, medium option, and the lower option. Each option have different "settings" and some cars have even different engines depending on the option.

Ok, this is so much. My little brain can't handle it. I'd rather let my dad choose whatever.😂🌺🤷🏻‍♀️

Yea it just be a lot of things going on in my head so I guess I overthink everything too much like if someone brings up a topic I'm not interested in or don't know much about I feel like my brain kinda just shuts off 🤷🏾‍♀️ idk I wanna say I have a short attention span but idk

It‘s totally fine if you don’t wanna invest into a conversation that you can’t bring much to the table to. I can totally feel that.
If someone starts talking about cars and engines in a group conversation and I can opt out, I most certainly will do so. 😄 Or I‘ll try to direct the conversation into a different direction. 🤗

¡Hola, Freitheit! Me acorde de las películas que tengo pendientes y pensé que no me vendría mal un poco de variedad, ¿hay alguna que te haya gustado bastante como para recomendarla?

kiyoshi092’s Profile PhotoV - Hoff
Hola hola!
Pues a ver...Bohemian Rhapsody es una maravilla. Mortal engines aún está en cines pero está muy bien aunque puede hacerse algo larga. Capitán america: civil war es la única que me gustó del capi, y guardianes de la galaxia ambas están bien y la banda sonora es genial. Aniquilación también está chula aunque puede parecer algo fumada, pero el argumento es intetesante. Un lugar tranquilo está muy bien también si quieres algo inquietante, pero se puede hacer muy lenta. Las de harry potter y animales fantasticos te recomiendo solo la primera, la segunda me decepcionó un poco. Tengo ganas de ver Bumblebee porque dicen que esta muy bien y en imdb tiene buena nota. Que más... Expediente Warren, todas en general me gustan mucho pero no se si será tu estilo. El solista es una de Robert Downey Jr que no es muy conocida pero es una auténtica maravilla. Es un drama acerca de un violonchelista esquizofrenico y un periodista. Es genial, como también lo es caballo de batalla. Ay lo que lloré con esa. También te meto orgullo y prejuicio en el saco porque adoro a la Elizabeth Bennet. Y mmm no se me ocurren más jajajaj

"You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details." .. What is your opinion on this quote? To what extent do you agree or disagree?

This is one of the most true Quotations I've ever read. Like , you can't put benzene in the cars that have diesel engines .
Both diesel and benzene are liquids and they're made from the same source,but they're totally different , each one has its own essence.
Well, I do agree this af ??

Min, why do European fighter jets look the same? Take a look at Eurofighter Typhoon, Dassault Rafale, and Saab Gripen. They feature small airframe, delta wing, and canard, yet somehow the price and operating cost can be hugely different

Almost every car has four wheels, and engine, steering wheels yet their price can be so different.
Similarity of design doesn't mean similarity of prices. There are tons of things to be considered, and a lot of them are not actually related to the design.
About the design. Gripen is a single engine fighter. It means a lot since adding more engines adds more complexity to the system. Not only that, the computer system needs to take care of two engines so that in taxes the computer even more, making it even more complex. Since an engine needs a lot of maintenance, having more engines means more parts that needs to be maintained, adding more operating cost. Adding more engines doesn't translate into "twice the speed", due to this drag equation:
D = Cd * A * .5 * r * V^2
Where A is the reference area of the object, V is the velocity of the object (relative to the moving fluid). Since drag increases by the square of the velocity, the power required to push the planes rises exponentially. Coupled with that fact, more engines means larger cross section for a plane, thus, larger reference area. Adding more engines however helps in increasing the payload, but still doesn't mean that you can double the payload since adding more weight means that you either increase the speed or enlarging your wings, both of them causes even more drag, not to mention that the plane itself has a weight on its own.
Typhoon, being a larger plane means more material needed to construct. Coupled with the fact that Typhoon is a multinational project, there are too many companies involved in it, each increasing the price since each company has to make a profit (one of the primary reason why SpaceX can be so cheap compared to United Launch Alliance). Logically Rafale should be more expensive since it has smaller number of planes produced due to Economies of Scale, increasing the production decreases the cost per unit up to a point where increasing the production scale raises the cost per unit. However, Rafale is a French project, thus the transportation of each component happens on a single contiguous country, cutting the production cost significantly. Being a single country project also helps the coordination of the project and solving bureaucratic problems associated with multinational projects.
As for why they are similar (in using delta and canards), there's a quora article for that:
https://www.quora.com/How-do-canards-affect-the-aerodynamics-and-performance-of-a-combat-aircraft/answer/Raphael-Segal
European and Russian fighters are mostly about maneuverability, so that's understandable, while in Russian case, since they are basically already has a proper template (Mig 29 and Su 27) they don't change it that much since it is basically a risk.

Do you think the world is getting better because of technology, or is technology causing some of the problems we have with terrorism, bigotry, global warming, etc.

It is important to keep in mind that technology is limited by the ways in which we use it. Although tech is continually evolving, human beings remain essentially the same as they were 30,000 years ago: tribal, fearful, superstitious animals. Technology isn’t the problem; we are. Is technology making the world better? Look at expected lifespans, how easy and cheap it is to communicate across the world, and that we have access to virtually all the information in the world in our pockets, and we watch cat videos. Does technology create problems? Sure. Man-made global climate change started in the 19th century when steam engines were deployed to pump water out of mines, and it’s only gotten worse. The key is to exploit the benefits of technology, and use it to mitigate the problems. Technology created horrible pollution by the 1960’s-70’s, and technology has remediated a lot of it. Technology created thousands of injuries and deaths from traffic accidents; in 5–10 years technology will have fixed many of those with self-driving vehicles. I think it’s a Catch-22 type of thing. Of course, technology is amazing because now we can do so many more things; interact with people from around the world; find out what’s happening everywhere at any time; on top of many, many other cool things. But we aren’t so used to having access to so much information and, quite frankly, power, so we tend to abuse this privilege and don’t know when to stop. Plus, since technology spreads good things quickly, it also spreads bad things quickly. But I don’t think we have problems such as bigotry, terrorism, and global warming directly because of technology, because these problems have always existed; we just now have a faster means of spreading that information. In short, maybe the world is getting better and worse at the same time. I don’t know though, that’s just my 2 cents. Terrorism and bigotry have been around for thousands of years. Just because it's new to some newer countries doesn't mean it didn't exist all along. As far as global warming don't worry we're not important enough to make too many changes in the earth we will just be eradicated soon enough. Right now I think tech' is stalled. Tech' cannot continue to bring the equivalent of the '60's to 2018; if that were the case, no one here could begin to imagine what's going to happen in 20 years from now. The other issue is that of financing; whatever is in the pipeline for the next 20 years we can' afford. Both. Technology has improved food production, medicine, and qualify of life for many, but it's also facilitated the production of deadlier weapons, increased pollution, and spread misinformation more easily than ever before. I think tech is as good as the leash on it.

Hela looked at Loki while walking. All those slaves on Asgard and the girl back to Jotunheim. What if there was no one alive ? "If. And what if.." she didn't finish the sentence, very sure he had gotten the question. "Get on the ship and take a seat. All of you," she ordered.

Loki sighed, what if... What if he had ki.lled them all, what if he had ki.lled her parents? He let the girl sit next to the other slaves and immediately activated the engines of the ship. So he took off and activated the autopilot once they avoided the meteors.
They all had empty eyes, the girl in particular, he walked to her and then knelt in front of the girl who avoided his gaze.
He turned into his normal form.
"What is your name?" He asked, but she didn't answer, so Loki looked at Hela and gulped, slowlyoving his gaze back to her as she turned into his Jotun form. Her eyes opened almost wide and her voice sounded like a whisper. "Eira."

was all she said, just in case she was trying to sleep. a sigh escaped her lips, and she curled up in her bed, not wanting to go to school in the morning. once the notorious sound of her alarm went off, the girl nearly fell out of bed. she moaned while sitting up, rubbing her eyes. ❛come on, vega! get out of bed you bum!❜ stiles yelled while mimicking the girl’s accent. she smiled softly, stretching her back so it could make a popping sound, ❛that’s gross,❜ stiles twisted his face in disgust. ❛you’re gross, stiles,❜ she chuckled and pushed his face with her hand. she opened the closet door to reveal her clothes. ❛jeans, a white shirt, and a plaid jacket-thing.❜ she chuckled, taking out the things stiles told her to. he was still in his pajamas, and while she changed; he did too. ❛stiles?❜ she laughed aloud when he came out in almost the exact same outfit. ❛oh god, thank gosh you’re not taking me to school,❜ she said in relief. ❛i got better things to do,❜ he claimed, a smile lingering on his lips. ❛well i have to go,❜ she kissed his cheek and dashed into her car, hearing the engines roar to life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀vega unpacked her things, and noticed whitney was running a few minutes later than usual— must have been scott’s driving or something. she exchanged a few words with logan before the girl came in. ❛—theo?❜ she looked at where the boy usually sat, ❛no i guess not.❜ she looked a little troubled, ❛you good?❜ logan asked, looking from whitney to vega in concern. ❛did he text you at—❜ the intercom cut off the girl, calling for the mccall to come to the office. she squeezed her arm gently, before the girl left the classroom. vega looked back to where theo sat, wondering where the hell the kid was. the hour was almost over and whitney finally barged in, her face was pale and sad. ❛whitney—❜ she began to explain what had happened— how state was moved up and she was on probation. theo hopefully had nothing to do with that. she embraced the girl, ❛we will figure out who did it, i’ll keep my ears and eyes peeled,❜ she nodded to the girl, and logan gave her a questioning look. she shrugged in response, and she kept forgetting that he did not know her secret. the bell rang, and the two girls walked to their lockers, ❛theo was fine last night, right?❜ she sniffed the air; oh god. scott walked up to the two girls, not making eye contact with vega. ❛how you holding up?❜ he asked his little sister, annoyance fluttered in the air. she cut whitney’s reply, ❛i have an idea—❜ she looked up, barely meeting scott’s eyes. ❛lydia goes to mit, right? well stiles probably has her number,❜ scott hit his head lightly on the lockers; he probably had it too, but she did not want to use him as her subject.
