yes, because you treat all guns as loaded


This. Unless the gun is physically apart in pieces on the table, it's loaded. Even if you just unloaded it, it's still "loaded".

Then why even mention the word "loaded?"

the sign is for "Idiots"
One repeats the word 'loaded' frequently even when unnecessary because the consequences of a mistake are dire.

REMEMBER: "protecting your health" is just one of many totally meaningless weasel phrases used to convey a good impression without saying anything which could be legally actionable.

Also, does a 737 actually have a radar? Otherwise, is it still a radome or just s nose?

I believe that practically all passenger jetliners have radomes as their noses. Being at the front end it is a good place for such devices and is a good use for otherwise unusable space.

Yes, the 737 has got a weather radar tucked in there, as do basically all modern airliners.

Cool. TIL.

(I honestly thought they just got telemetry from the ground.)

Is this site for vampires or ghouls?

Yeah, yeah, I understand that having such a severe dietary restriction could at least complicate one's dating possibilities, but to exclude 98.5% of the population for THIS reason?

On the other hand, if people using this site are among the imbeciles who are "gluten-sensitive" or apply some other such nonsense term to themselves, then they deserve what they (don't) get.

The pictured radar is a weather radar. It's for mapping precipitation ahead of the aircraft. It is not used for traffic avoidance or navigation.
Satellite WX data (i.e. data relayed from ground stations to the aircraft via a satellite data link) is usually delayed by several minutes, and therefore is great for getting the 'Big Picture' on weather ahead, but, when it comes to flying an approach between storms, for example, onboard weather radar is a far more real-time source. Afaik, every major airliner in service today has an onboard weather radar.

A number of small aircraft can also optionally be equipped with the same technology (obviously, on a smaller scale). For example, the black protrusion near the end of the right hand wing on this Pilatus PC-12 contains an onboard weather radar.

Amatuer archeologist spent £32 K to buy land to reveal what may be a large though once-lost medieval town on the border of Wales:

The article points out that many modern British cities are built on top of the remains of their older versions. For most places construction has largely removed any archeological remains.

On the other hand there are places outside of modern towns where the precise location of a medieval village or town was not too accurate, and that time and erosion and farming may have erased any surface evidence as had happened in the case of the medieval town of Trellech.

We've already had a few snakes on planes. I figured one more didn't necessarily deserve much beyond a link.

Snowplant is shown below. I've only seen it a few times and never as nice as this picture. These colors are not retouched. It really is that red.
