If a cabin is pressurized and an airplane door came open in midflight at a high altitude, the sudden opening could cause items and people to get sucked out. However, pressurization in the cabin and a plug-type door (a door that is bigger than the opening), makes it near impossible for even multiple people to open a door during a flight.

The Queen of England is the only British citizen who travels without a passport.

After the 9/11 attacks on the United States, President Bush demanded that the Taliban, Afghanistan's ruling party, extradite Osama bin Laden. Afghanistan refused, citing lack of evidence. The United States responded by launching Operation Enduring Freedom and invaded Afghanistan.

The total production of excrement by the U.S. population is 12,000 pounds per second. The total production of excrement by U.S. livestock is 250,000 pounds per second, which would be greatly reduced if humans ate a more plant-based diet and had little or no need for domesticated livestock. Less livestock would also greatly reduce Earth’s trapped greenhouse gases.

Such a melodramatic code name!  Not like us Brits - when we dropped into Arnhem during World War 2 we called it, 'Operation Market Garden'.  We'd have probably called that American escapade something like, 'Operation Sidecar' or 'Operation Digeridoo'.

Clive:
We do tend to understate things.   :laugh:

Just a quick question for Clive.
