Within seconds, the bid stalls at one million Euros, and the gasp from the crowd identifies the excitement that prevails in the room. The successful bidder is the last one who bid one million, and the auctioneer counts down the bid, "Going once, going twice, and sold to the gentleman sitting in front of me for one million Euros."
Now, you are going to have to see the video for yourself. The auctioneer is exuberant. The pace is fast. The conclusion? Priceless.

This is an actual Night Vision video clip from Iraq.
Read this first so you know what you are watching, then watch the video.
You have to watch this... this is unreal, 2.5 miles away, at night and it looks like they are right there.
Heck of a weapon too.......
The pictures were taken from an AC130 Specter gunship two and a half miles away.
The guys in the picture are setting up a roadside bomb and planning to ambush an American convoy which followed a short while after the pictures were taken.
They were setting up for the ambush and were pacing off the distance from the bomb to where the convoy was to pass by.
Turn your sound up. The level of effort these crews put forth to control the enemy's antics is commendable, and their marksmanship with those electronically controlled 40 mm cannons is astounding.

Russia now has the number 1 fighter plane in the world... SU-30- Vectored Thrust with Canards.
As you watch this airplane, look at the canards moving along side of, and just below the canopy rail. The "canards" are the Small wings forward of the main wings.? The smoke and contrails provide a sense of the actual flight path, sometimes in reverse direction.
This video is of an in-flight demonstration flown by the Russian's-30MK fighter aircraft. You will not believe what you are About to see.
The fighter can stall from high speed, stopping forward motion in seconds (full stall). Then it demonstrates an ability to descend tail first without causing a compressor stall. It can also recover from a flat spin in less than a minute. These maneuver capabilities don't exist in any other aircraft in the world today.. Take a look at the video with the sound up.
This aircraft is of concern to U.S. and NATO planners. We don't know which nations Will soon be flying the SU-30MK. They're hoping China isn't one of them......
Lawrence Livermore of US National Laboratory Note:
"Friends worked with advanced aircraft flight control systems and concepts for many years as an extension of stability control and means of control. Canards and vectored thrust were among many concepts examined to extend our fighter aircraft performance.
"Neither our current or next generation aircraft now poised for funding & production can in any way match the performance of this Russian aircraft NOW FLYING, in any near combat situation. Somehow the bankrupt Russian aircraft industry has out-produced our complex politically tainted aerospace
"Scratch any ideas of close in air-to-air combat with this aircraft in the future. Looking for the perfect gift?".

Please note the instruction on the video.
I had argument with local tyre shop owner on this before. He had insisted on putting the new tyres on the front. (His argument is that nowadays most cars are front-wheel drive so the driving force is from the front wheel BUT as shown in the video, it is the grip whilst driving on the wet road that is critical).
I had to put my foot down and insisting on putting the new tyres at the back.
Another thing to note is always if possible change the tyres in pair as if one change only one tyre, the grip will not be balance.

This does sometimes bring a tear to people's eyes!
'The Last Post' is a universal tune among almost all the armed forces of the world, though it may vary among them in its execution.
In this example, the bugle call is played in its entirety, and it is a sad and beautiful thing to hear. The unknown young lady bugler has terrific breath power.
She is accompanied by Andre Riéu and his orchestra.

IT IS AMAZING THE ADVERSITIES SOME PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO OVERCOME.
In a Chinese modern dance competition on TV one very uniquecouple won one of the top prizes. The lady, in her 30's, was a dancer who had trained since she was a little girl. Later in life, she lost her entire right arm in an accident and fell into a state of depression for a few years.
Someone then asked her to coach a Children's dancing group..
From that point on, she realized that she could not forget dancing. She still loved to dance and wanted to dance again.
So, she started to do some of her old routines, but, having lost
her arm, she had also lost her balance.
It took a while before she could even make simple turns and> spins without falling. Then she heard of a man in his 20s who had lost a leg in an accident. He had also fallen into the
usual denial, depression and anger type of emotional roller
coaster. But, she was determined to find him and persuade
him to dance with her..
He had never danced, and to dance
with one leg....are you joking with me? "No way!"
But, she didn't give up, and he reluctantly agreed thinking, "I have nothing else to do anyway." She started to teach him dancing. The two broke up a few times because he had no concept of using muscle, how to control his body, and knew none of the basic things about dancing.
When she became frustrated and lost patience with him, he would walk out. Eventually, they came back together and started training seriously.
They hired a choreographer to design routines for them. She would fly high (held by him) with both arms (a sleeve for an arm) flying in the air. He could bend horizontally supported by one leg with her leaning on him, etc.
In the competition, as you will see, they dance beautifully and they legitimately won the competition.
