So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Murder is premeditated.
Are you getting US law definitions confused with reality?

Tell us where the word "tennis" came from, and where and when rackets where first used.

As far as I understand murderer applies to one who premeditatedly kills a fellow human being
A killer does not necessarily premeditate and nor does it have to be human as either the killer or victim, one can kill for food
So a murderer is always a killer but a killer is not always a murderer
Thanks <3

I was lucky enough to fly Concorde in 2003, and on Air Miles to boot! It was a great experience. If only that POS Continental DC-10 hadn't dropped metal over CDG we'd still be able to fly it today. All the airliners today are bloody boring.

Not surprising- it was a toy for the rich and the middle class paid for it.

English language does.

Odd that someone in a country with 60 million would declare the rest of the world (e.g., population 310 million here) parochial.

PS:'The first patent for using a gas turbine to power an aircraft was filed in 1921 by Frenchman Maxime Guillaume.'
More barfy butt face BS, you rely do make yourself look stupid

I was not talking about Maxime Guillaume, I stated fact that Frank Whittle registered the patent in 1930 and had the first successful bench test April 1937. I also mentioned that Ohain and Whittle are jointly accredited with inventing the Jet engine

These are documented facts, not made up BS about inventions that already existed and they wong be changed because you have a tantrum

Look up the meaning of the word INVENTION

Toys aren't airplanes, Chubby.
You "proved" that Pearse flew an airplane before the Wright Brothers... and I provided a quote from Pearse himself where he said he didn't fly before 1904.
A toy model isn't an airplane, Skanque, no matter how hard you stomp.
Wrong, there paten makes no claim to inventing the plane, the only thing that makes that claim is nationalistic liars like you.
Wrong, this subject has only been going here for a few days, I guess you syphilis is distorting your concept of time.
Wrong again fatso, it says so on the box.
Wrong again fatso, I offered a link that made a suggestion that upset you.
I donít need to stomp, engineers agree with me, itís not the size that matters. I donít really care about the opinion of an obese syphilitic moron wuth a prro memory and a penchant for contradicting facts

Read the facts and weep

http://www.concordesst.com/retire/faq_r.html

On average Concorde made and operating profit of £30-50 Million a year for British Airways in the boom years where many passengers were travelling first class. British Airways reportedly received £1.75 Billion in revenue for Concorde services against an operating cost of around £1 Billion. Air France made a much smaller profit.

He wasn't the first. Who cares when he registered a patent?

In boom years.

Tell us: did you skip over the part which described how the plane got into the air and how the "profits" came before they paid back the government's cut?

"Why is Concorde being retired?

It is all down to cost: the Airlines are not making back the money spent on the safety modifications and other upgrades. With some other big costs coming up (tens of millions, before any life extension programme), BA need to write off £84M now, rather than £150M in 3 or 4 years. Air France will write off a large sum of money too. "

Origin:
1350Ė1400; Middle English tenetz, ten ( e ) ys < Anglo-French: take!, imperative plural of tenir to hold, take, receive, apparently used as a server's call

"Tennis is originally an English racquet sport played on a rectangular court, from the beginning, and later outdoors indoors. The gameplay, which are separated by a net, can be one on one (single) or two against two (double), The game was invented in 1873 by British Major Walter Clopton Wingfield (1833-1912) with the ancient racquet sport of real tennis as a model."
