I'm actually surprised mid-air refueling of UAVs wasn't accomplished sooner, however I guess they are so easy to operate from forward operating bases that it's easier to just send them on short missions.

The little ones, sure. Whatever the unmanned, semi-autonomous version of the B-2 ends up looking like, I'm sure it'll be flown out of a very, very secure airbase in the lower 48.


This is already true of Global Hawk. I'm not sure if it is capable of mid-air refueling (because its range is already ludicrous), but it is perfectly capable of flying very long distances on its own. I know, I was still around when NGC published the video of its flight from LA to Australia more than a decade ago with virtually zero human intervention.

Of course, that's a surveillance platform, not a bomber, but the principles have assuredly been honed over the last several years.

That's interesting.

It says it take 4-5 months for the fly eggs to hatch into larvae. But if I put a bowl of cat food outside and there are no takers, there's maggots in that human waste w/in 48 hours.

So, I wonder. Different fly species, or are the eggs already in the cat food & ready to go?

Beats me. The biggest question is why you would want to eat something that can literally infest your intestines to the point of poking holes through them, or potentially drill holes through your eyes as you pop it in your mouth. :shrug:

Almost certainly different species. There probably are some DEAD fly eggs in that cat food that died when that cat food got sterilized like most processed foods.

Considering that time span, my guess is that there are some cues that stop flies from laying eggs in that cheese or just the environment of already hungry larvae in that cheese would simply eat any eggs of possible rival species to stop them from gaining a foothold.

Yes. It was considered valid, and is now in a law library.

Such a waste of good equipment. Though it made a good stage show. ;)

I've seen it in dogs, why can't it be real in humans?

It is real in humans, just not in that human.
