freitasm: What happened?

 

Some bloke severed his hand with, what I expect the author means, a circular saw.  Also often generically referred to as a Skilsaw (a trademark).  Otherwise I have no idea what a 'skill saw' is.

I love the blurry ambulance photo. It reminds me of the time the Herald ran a caption that came within "is" of explicitly calling an ambulance a plane:

"Endless summer: warm, settled weather here until Thursday.

Doh.

Unless he is a professional hand remover, his skill saw use is unskilled...

Geektastic: Herald:

"Endless summer: warm, settled weather here until Thursday.

Does that mean ALL weather will end on Thursday?

 

Wonder what Friday will bring?

 

What does no weather entail?

 

Buy Friday's Herald to find out...

I must be feeling generous - I'd give The Herald a pass with "skill saw".  It's what very many tradies call their "hand-held circular saws" even if few of them are "Skilsaw®" brand.  After sawing off your hand, you could use a "shop vac" to clean up the mess, even if it's not a "Shop-vac®". An aspirin might help relieve the pain (even if it wasn't made by Bayer), and a band aid might help stop the blood leaking (even if it wasn't made by J&J).

Yup, that's a missile engagement radar, and the long thin thing just near it might be the search radar.
That'd make a single command and control unit looking after eight fire units, which would be odd. I think the Mercans sell them in one to four or one to three ratio.

 

Interesting

 

 

I thought part of the concept was that the whole kit and kaboodle was mobile, you'd hide it and bring it out when needed.  That entire setup looks rather permanent and conspicuous and vulnerable. Maybe it's all made out of polystyrene.   Anyway, we're getting a bit off-topic.  It annoys me that in articles referring to google earth "discoveries", the media seldom give links or coordinates.  Maybe it's some lame attempt at "responsible reporting" of the "loose lips sink ships" kind.  I wonder if the Chinese military have seen it ?
