Even with instruments, in that weather that helicopter was operating well outside any reasonable safety limits to be approaching an uncontrolled lading area, let alone one without any kind of ILS system. This one is going to go down as pilot error, if not pilot negligence.

As cold as this may sound, I am thankful the condition of the wreckage pretty much rules out anyone living long enough to perish in the post crash fire. I don't want to think of Kobe and his daughter going through that.

Rest in peace, Kobe. Thanks for the memories.

"Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled, Scots, wham Bruce has aften led, Welcome tae yer gory bed, Or tae victorie." - Unofficial Scottish National Anthem penned by Burns in 1793.

"Green grow the rashes, O;
Green grow the rashes, O;
The sweetest hours that e'er I spend

Ah, the rashes! He might want to have those looked at, yet despite them though, ol' Bobby still loved the young girls.

National Lego Day

The colorful plastic bricks known as Legos have entertained children (and adults) around the world for nearly 70 years. Legos are used to make toy buildings, vehicles, creatures, machines, anything imaginable — and they can be taken apart and put back together as often as you’d like. That means endless creative play. National Lego Day, on January 28, celebrates these incredibly ingenious and enriching toys.

National Lego Day timeline

2017
Lego became the World's Most Powerful Brand

Brand Finance, a business consultancy group, announced Lego had surpassed Google, Nike, Ferrari, and Visa to claim the top spot.

1949
Lego bricks introduced

The Lego Group began manufacturing the now-iconic bricks using an injection mold machine it had recently purchased.

1932
Lego company founded

Ole Kirk Christiansen, a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, founded the Lego company to manufacture wooden toys.

National Lego Day Activities

Build a Lego toy
Dust off your old Lego set — or use your kids' — and tinker around for a while. It's good for relaxation and mental stimulation. Lego even sponsors corporate retreats for adults.

Plan to visit a Legoland theme park
They're located in Carlsbad, California, and Winter Haven, Florida. There's also a Legoland Discovery Center in Tempe, Arizona. If you're looking for more of a day trip, you can visit one of the 132 Lego retail stores across America.

Watch on the big (or small) screen
The Lego Movie (2014) scored 96 percent "fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes, with many praising the movie's irreverent tone and colorful action. The sequel is set for 2019. Or head over to YouTube to watch a Lego creator build breathtaking structures.

5 Startling Facts About Legos

Each Set Contains Trillions of Combinations
Two eight-pipped Lego bricks can be combined 24 different ways. The number goes up exponentially with the addition of other bricks; only six of the same bricks can be combined in over 900 million unique ways.

Lego Is The World's Largest Tire Manufacturer
Lego makes 400 million tires a year for its various vehicles, far outstripping any real-life tire maker.

A Man Made A Real House Out of Legos
The UK's James May built a house out of 3.3 million bricks. It contained a working toilet, shower, and bed.

There's A Surprising Reason Behind Minifigure Design
That iconic hole in the head of a Lego minifigure is not there, as many of us suspected as kids, so you can attach a head to a brick. It's there so a child can continue to breathe in case he or she accidentally swallows it.

Legos Are A Perfect Fit
The injection molds used in creating Legos have tolerances of less than two micrometers — meaning that today's Legos still fit perfectly with those from 60 years ago.

Why We Love National Lego Day

Legos are good for the mind
Research suggests that Legos and other construction toys can improve a wide range of mental aptitudes in young children, such as spatial intelligence and hand-eye coordination. (It should be noted that Legos are intended for kids old enough not to swallow them — and wise enough not to leave them out on the carpet!)

Legos are a highly cost-effective toy
A Lego set isn't one toy — it's hundreds! Legos have some of the best "mileage" out of any toy on the market. It'll be years before your child (or you) can exhaust all the possibilities of even a small Lego set.

The story of Lego is inspiring
The Lego Group has made Lego bricks since 1949. The company rebounded from a major sales slump in the early 2000s, becoming the world's most valuable toy company. It's also the world's most powerful brand. All this, while remaining privately held and run by the same family that founded it.

Interesting. I hadn't heard that aspect of the story. Light aircraft scare me a bit, not sure I would go up in one...

Still have my lego collection at my parent's place. They're not going anywhere and hopefully will be passed on to the next generation whenever that happens.

National Puzzle Day

January 29 is National Puzzle Day, the perfect day to do a little brain exercise. Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, or Sudoku, puzzles engage our brain in more ways than one. Scientists have discovered that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we utilize both sides of the brain, improving memory, cognitive function and problem solving skills in the process. By utilizing puzzles, people can stimulate the brain improve a number of skills.

National Puzzle Day Activities

Spend time putting together a jigsaw puzzle
Have an old uncompleted puzzle laying around? Call up a friend and spend time piecing together a puzzle. Extra points for completing your puzzle!

Complete a Sudoku or crossword puzzle
Taking a coffee break? Bust out that handy crossword puzzle or Sudoku booklet.

Use #NationalPuzzleDay on social media
Feeling accomplished after completing your jigsaw, Sudoku, or crossword puzzle? Share it with your online community using #NationalPuzzleDay to encourage people to join in the fun!

Why We Love National Puzzle Day

Happiness
Recent studies have shown that people who participate in collaborative games, such as puzzles have higher levels of happiness, and in some cases relaxation, as a result of their good ol’ fashion fun. A challenging jigsaw puzzle undoubtedly brings out that sense of joy.

Puzzles serve as a sense of accomplishment
Not just in a personal sense, but in a group sense. That feeling of completing the final few pieces of the puzzle with your best friends = priceless.

It’s a way of stimulating the mind.
Puzzles stimulate the brain, improving number and problem solving kills while keeping it active.

National Corn Chip Day

On January 29th, grab the queso or salsa and celebrate National Corn Chip Day. Recognized each year across the country, the day encourages corn chip lovers to whip up their favorite dips and toppings.

The corn chip or friotes are not to be confused with the tortilla chip. Both are made from cornmeal which is baked or fried in oil.

Differing steps for processing the corn separate the tortilla from the corn chip. The corn for a tortilla chip is soaked in a lime-water solution that breaks down the hulls. This process creates a crisper, milder chip. A corn chip is sturdier with a stronger corn flavor. Both were popular snacks originating in Mexico.

There are two men credited with patenting and marketing the corn chip in the United States. First, Isador J. Filler often ate a tostada (a hard corn tortilla with toppings) while traveling in San Antonio, Texas as a salesman. He struck on the idea of making them in rectangles and marketing them as a chip. In 1932 he patented his concept.

Around the same time, Elmer Doolin was also traveling in San Antonio and was enjoying friotes. According to the story, he paid $100 for the recipe. Experimenting in his home until he created the ideal chip, Doolin then started selling them from the back of his Model T Ford. When he began mass-producing them under the name of Frito Corn Chips, they were a hit.

In 1945, Doolin came to an agreement with Herman Lay (of potato chip fame) to distribute Doolin’s Fritos across the country. The two companies merged in 1959 after Doolin’s death.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalCornChipDay
Grab your favorite corn chips. Add some dips or topping. Be sure to share with friends or family, too. It’s the best way to #CelebrateEveryDay. They’re great additions to just about any gathering. And be sure to use #NationalCornChipDay to post on social media.

NATIONAL CORN CHIP DAY HISTORY
National Corn Chip Day has been observed since at least 2002. However, we’ve not been able to identify the organizer of the celebration.

No Terrain Warning System and flying fast while using visual reference in bad weather condtions? That explains the crash and if that is the case I agree with Issues Test Bed that this crash will go down as being caused by pilot error.

1. The Republic of Atria
2. Arutiise
3. New Northridge
4. Heretics of Dune
5. The Xiang-Hui Dynasty

and from Elven King Thranduil:

6. Furry Schoolgirls

I saw and liked the Gretchen of the Beer Garden card but I'm buying it from the Market instead of selecting it as one of my prizes.

Nyah ha ha ha! We have another Winner! Talitha Macer has won this round of BINGO with a Septuple Bingo. Congratulations Talitha! :)

Winners do not go away empty handed - They must win a prize and for winning a Septuple Bingo, your prize will be SEVEN cards from my deck of Trading Cards on my nations: Fort Verden, Elven King Thranduil and Little Thranduil. Except the cards in the Cards Gifted To Me By My Sons collection. Choose your prizes and I will send them to you.


Talitha Macer wrote:7 cards? Wow thank you Verner but instead of 7 cards I'd like to claim just 1 card that in my opinion is worth 7 cards. I'd like to have your NewTexas card from Elven King Thranduil. It'll be the most valuable card in my collection. :D

Nyah ha ha ha! I was wondering whether anyone will claim my NewTexas card as their prize. Fortune favors the bold. Here you go, enjoy your prize and congratulations again Talitha! :)

NewTexas Card gifted to The Armed Republic of Talitha Macer for 1.00.
