  1. They put a lot of thought into the scenarios, particularly the analysis of the different options and the explanation of why they matter. Now I really understand the significant difference between barometric and GPS altitude measurements. I could have worked that out given a little thought, but their explanation was very clear. Even though I don’t fly, that’s worth knowing. The chance to win the sim. for spending about 15 minutes of time was a nice incentive.

  2. Off topic, but noteworthy example of “Real World Divorce”: Man files motion requesting ‘trial by combat’ with Japanese swords to settle dispute with Iowa ex-wife

    A Kansas man has asked an Iowa court to grant his motion for trial by combat so he can meet his ex-wife and her attorney “on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies.”
    He asked the Iowa District Court in Shelby County to give him 12 weeks “lead time” in order to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords, as first reported by the Carroll Times Herald.
    “To this day, trial by combat has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States,” Ostrom argues in court records, adding that it was used “as recently as 1818 in British Court.”
