Yep. That captures one in a nutshell. I suppose I should be grateful that no woman has ever hated me enough to shoot me. Then again, does that mean I am shortchanging myself in the race to plant the flag at the Ultima Thule of love?
I don’t really agree. Likely, modern life makes the dominant emotion about people … indifference. While you should be yourself, and not project a phony mask (not the least of which, is the effort required to do so is painful and exhausting for most people), doing so will probably not make you either loved or hated.
Most people will neither hate nor love you. They just won’t even know you exist or care much one way or the other.
What if you have the balls to be hated but you gain more by lying and getting someone to love the role that you play?
I definitely have people who have seen the real me and hate me, but I only show them that because they don’t create value for me either way. Some people love who I really am, but there are others who love (or like very much) the role I play for them. I pretend to care about shit that I’m indifferent about and sometimes even opposed to. This makes people think I’m trustworthy and they lower their guard enough for me to extract some real value from them. There are people who will go to their grave believing I was a nice guy.
I have an atheist friend who will tell girls “God never puts more on our plate than we can handle” when he’s gaming them and they eat that shit up. He might lose the lay if he told her that religion was bullshit. He has the balls to be hated, but he’d rather drain those balls on her face.
– A helo deck capable of operation two H-60s. This is a tremendous capability, and can significantly extend Sea Fighter’s radius of action.
– Very high speed – 55kts.
– Built like a pickup truck, with most space devoted to a large mission bay.
– Crew size similar to a patrol craft.
That’s not discrete math, you cretins, it’s simple symbolic logic. In most places that’s not even the Math Department. At least SAM attempted a clumsy use of DeMorgan’s.
I was going to defend this quote as more than UL’s sissification until I googled Stephane Hemone and realized he was a Class 5 douchebag.
Seafighter, you’re built like a pickup truck, and about as useful in a fight. Anything those SH-60’s can’t keep away with their, uh, dipping sonar, will eat you for lunch. Even the PC’s had deck guns. Your designers instead spent good time and money making sure you had sufficient staterooms for women; I’m sure that’ll come in handy for the Coast Guard. I’d rather take your hot big sister LCS-2 any day of the week.

“- Very high speed – 55kts.”
Built to tuck tail and run. Like much of today’s Milspec gear.
We really needed next generation battleships with super cannons like Saddem was trying to get built. Who cares if you have cruise missiles, more ships are being armed with Phalanx “Dense lead stream” Defense systems, then ever before.
Given me a Monsoon of Lead from something like:
(Iowa earned nine battle stars for World War II service and two for Korean service.)
But make it 2x as WIN, by laying a second vessel alongside and turning it into battle-cat. the Catamaran Battleship would have Eighteen 16 in. guns and Four-ty 5 in. guns.
But as a next gen platform is should run on cold fuision, and have two reactors (one fore, one aft) just for powering the Electromagnetic Superconduting Railguns.
Replacing the gunpower method, now obsolete. Railguns are viable surface to air wepons. Factor in Gen4 aegis radar (beyond 12 million watts) and state of the art quatum computing based targeting systems.
You could loc a target, radiate it hard enough to fry Onboard flight systems, and swat it like a bug with railgun chatter if the aircraft were EMP hardened. Long before it could get into antiship missle range.
The only vulnerability remains a stealth attack of Raptors or B2s with nukes.
Optics it’s all about optics computerize it so the enemy aircraft looks like a big giant ballon to the operator put cross hairs on and engage. Might put people in a bind of the soul on how easy it is. Put 14 years olds in for tours of duty and tell them it’s just a video game. Holi crap they fired one 230 miles with muzzle velocity of mach 7 and mach 5 at impact. Yea won’t be good to be a fly boy with that facing you as land or sea based defense with a supercomp attached.

Forgot one thing, You have next gen AI, that can man the fully automated vessel, that you can engage remotely if biologicals wipe the crew.
Thinks faster then a human, fires faster then a human, the only failure is if the IFF transponders get hacked.
I agree with Jewcano. The guy is a douchebag. Yes, it’s easy to call someone that on the Internet, but that’s what you are when you talk about your actions rather than let them speak for you. The same rule from high school applies. Those who get tail don’t need to brag about it.
