    Off-topic thread - talk about anything

    I wanted to delete a post in the original off-topic thread and accidentally deleted the entire thread. Unfortunately, there was no 'undo' button.

    We just have to continue where we left off in the original thread. But I can't remember what the topic was...!

    That happened to the American nuclear arsenal! It seems that there is a special compound in one part of the missile that nobody remembers how to make it! The knowledge has be deleted!

    How the US forgot how to make Trident missiles

    Plans to refurbish Trident nuclear weapons had to be put on hold because US scientists forgot how to manufacture a component of the warhead, a US congressional investigation has revealed. The US National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) "lost knowledge" of how to make a mysterious but very hazardous material codenamed Fogbank.... The US and the UK are trying to refurbish the ageing W76 warheads that tip Trident missiles in order to prolong their life, and ensure they are safe and reliable. This apparently requires that the Fogbank in the warheads is replaced...it is thought by some weapons experts to be a foam used between the fission and fusion stages of a thermonuclear bomb. ...But vital information on how Fogbank was actually made had somehow been mislaid. "NNSA had lost knowledge of how to manufacture the material because it had kept few records of the process when the material was made in the 1980s, and almost all staff with expertise on production had retired or left the agency," the report said.

    Wulf, did you used to make Fogbank?

    Nice car but why?? Picture overload on that site btw.. That makes me look at quickly but don't really check it out. And the few posts I read was just a lot of profanity.

    Yeah, thats the problem with that site. I mostly just lurk to see if anyone is getting rid of some good Saab parts... I just missed a set of Gary Fishers, even though I don't have the money for them.

    What do you mean you accidentally deleted the Off Topic thread I created?! It took me precious minutes to come up with all of that off topic witty nonsense. Now I'll have to start alllll over!
