The first time I remember hearing the question "is it real?" was when I went as a young boy to see a traveling show put on by "professional wrestlers" one summer evening in the gym of the Forks River Elementary School in Elmwood, Tennessee.
I keep saying that asymmetrical airplane impacts could not possibly cause symmetrical building collapses.

It is one of the mysteries of Japan’s ongoing nuclear crisis: How much damage did the March 11 earthquake do to the Fukushima Daiichi reactors before the tsunami hit? The stakes are high: If the quake structurally compromised the plant and the safety of its nuclear fuel, then every other similar reactor in Japan will have to be reviewed and possibly shut down. With virtually all of Japan’s 54 reactors either offline (35) or scheduled for shutdown by next April, the issue of structural safety looms over the decision to restart every one in the months and years after.

After a conflagration of arson attacks, riots and looting in several British cities, including the capital, London, there is a sense of order having been restored from a massive mobilisation of police forces.
This article still seems relevant. Let's remember that loss of helicopters was a major factor in the Russian defeat in Afghanistan.

Despite our rapid defeat of the Iraqi army last spring, one clear lesson that has emerged from both the combat and occupation phases of the war is that the entire concept of helicopter operations in battle is undermined by their extreme vulnerability to ground fire.
Unlike our experience in the jungles and wooded mountains of Vietnam, the helicopter is a prime and easy target in desert and urban warfare environments such as we have seen in Somalia, and are still seeing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hi guys. I have been saying this for over a year. Oil consumption here in the US is now 19 million barrels per day (mbd), down from 21 mbd at the peak in 2008.

Lost in the furor over the debt crisis last week came the news that the U.S. economy expanded at an annual rate of only 0.4 percent in the first quarter and 1.3 percent in the second. As these numbers were well below what economists were expecting, the revelation that the US was not coming out of the "great recession" was quite a shock for those who have not been paying attention.
Even further down in the news stories were revisions to the older GDP numbers that had the U.S. rebounding smartly from the 2007 to 2009 recession. It seems the official GDP numbers that are released shortly after the close of every quarter are partly guesstimates assembled by people biased is to make the incumbent administration look good. These of course are seized upon by the financial press as evidence that the economy is getting better and that projections of a 3 percent annual growth rate starting any day now are plausible.
