Liverpool FC v Borussia Dortmund in Charlotte. Match starts at 4:05.
Should be pretty obvious. No Panthers, we're here to see the Liverpool v Dortmund match.
No fatalities, thankfully. Here’s a shot I took of her back in 2014. It’s been a bad couple of days for vintage warbirds.
We’re flying to CLT today to see Dortmund v Liverpool tomorrow. Bank of America Stadium follows the NFL rules regarding what you can and can’t take into the stadium, and it says you can take in a “small still camera.” Does that mean I can take an SLR with a non-telephoto lens (0r at least one that looks non-telephoto)…

...a screen shot of Pre-Kinja Jalopnik or Oppo?
I discovered that in my time with Kinja (since Day One, actually), I’ve collected a few Kinja’d pictures. Go ahead and post your’s if you have any. I’m sure there are more, I just have to find them.
I’ve noticed a new “feature” of Kinja. There was a time when you would start writing a post and, when you hit publish, it would publish at that point. Now, if you spend 20 minutes writing a post, it posts it 20 minutes ago, back at the time when you started writing. I know that I can edit the post time before I hit…
My son has started driving. He’s doing pretty well, but he does one thing that drives me crazy: he shuffle steers. I think it’s also called push-pull. I drove a manual for 30 years, and I am a dedicated one-hand steerer: left hand at 12 o’clock, right hand resting on the shifter (or close to it), grab or palm the…
Well, if the cancer doesn’t kill him, the burgers certainly will.
Perhaps channeling the ghost of the legendary Tex Johnston, Lockheed’s chief C-130 pilot Wayne Roberts put the LM-100J Super Hercules through its paces at the Farnborough International Air Show 2018. The LM-100J is the civilian cargo version of the C-130J Super Hercules tactical airlifter, both descendants of the…
Greetings from the Department of What Might Have Been.
Peter Jackson is working with the Imperial War Museum to restore and improve old film from the First World War. The results are really quite stunning. I just hope they don’t
colorize colourise it, or take 45 minutes of footage and expand it into three epic movies.
That’s a drawbridge, folks.

But if you want a ride, be prepared to shell out some good old US American dollars.
Some months ago, one of you posted this animation but with very different music. Might have been some sort of metal, I don’t remember exactly, but it wasn’t this, which seems to be the original. Does anybody remember that, and can point me to the other video? Danke schön.
Produced by Howard Hughes and directed by Josef von Sternberg, Jet Pilot (1957), starring John Wayne and Janet Leigh, tells the story of an Air Force fighter pilot tasked with escorting a defecting Soviet pilot (Leigh) back to the US. Typical Cold War fluff (the pair inevitably falls in love), but the aerial…
