So I'm sure this would be doomed if people ignored the warnings. "Loose lips sink ships" applied in WWII, it does apply to Area 51 too.
That applies here as well

Today even if I had any fixes for injuries and time, I have no interest in firearms anymore, computers and My cat are more interesting.

Maybe I should tell you that "tiger" is both a noun and a verb in Swedish.
The noun is of course a big cat.
The verb is however when you don't speak of anything.
A WWII word game from back then:)
Like "Loose lips sink ships" in some sense.

I just heard that Area 51 is organizing this to test a new weapon system.

Home to aircraft like the Lockheed U-2 and the SR-71 Blackbird, there was not a missile made that could catch the SR-71 before the missile ran out of fuel, since the SR-71 could just light up those big GE turbofan afterburners and be over the horizon in almost no time at all, the SR-71 used Titanium like the screws in My left calf for the planes structure and used the fuel to help cool the plane before being burned.

Well the fuel losses from the SR-71 Blackbird where quite immense even on ground.
They leak a lot.

Turbofan afterburners? That is a bit of a contradiction. The P&W J58 is an afterburning turbojet with a unique compressor bleed to the afterburner.

Titanium?. Soviet submarines was built with that. Perhaps even new Russian subs.

I stand corrected, a jets afterburner. Still not a single SR-71 was ever shot down.

It's estimated that more titanium is on the moon than on Earth, frozen water was discovered in the polar craters on the moon, craters that never receive any sunlight cause of where they are, the moons narrow tilt and being only a few degrees kelvin above absolute zero keeps the water frozen and unable to evaporate.

Titanium is not abundant here on earth, but there seems to be a ready supply. I have a watch made of titanium. Not cheap but not super expensive either.

Today it seems like in the Barent Sea there are plenty of Titanium. Together with Uranium and Plutonium... "Top Secret" Losharik (AS-12) for instance...
Anyway. The Naruto gathering is at Friday, September 20, 2019 at 03:00–06:00 PDT.
Now more then a million will show up:)

3 screws vs a watch, which is more expensive? The watch can be removed easily, the screws with very great difficulty...

I'm REALLY curious if anyone actually bought a plane ticket or is getting ready to drive down for this.

The USAF is ready and willing for sure...

The screws are medical grade as the body has to accept the metal to escape being attacked as a foreign object, I was told they cost $16,000 in 2002.

Rachel NV, pop 54, makes Yermo CA, pop 1750, look like a big city by contrast.
