Too  right! Article 13 would be the death of many sites such as this. Can you imagine  any photo, pic or even words that many users post to illustrate their position would need to be vetted by this website before being allowed. This would mean NO photos from round the local pond,no video from youtube, baiscally nothing allowed unless you personally had taken the subject matter. The only way to stay safe would be to ban all material from being posted - not a good situation.

Not to me, Gareth Southgate has got his squad believing in themselves so England supporters can dare to hope. It seems that the pendulum of world football football has swung back to Europe, no South American teams left and Brazil has lost its mantle of invincibility. Belgium is the dark horse, but I boldly predict a France v England final, with my heart saying England, but my head saying France. However, I've been wrong before......frequently :embarrassed:

It is not just model submarines that can run into problems with displacement calculations.

Spains latest S80 Plus sub was built 100 tons overweight due to a calculation error.
Lengthened by 10M to correct the problem, it is now too long to fit into its dock, which is having to be lengthened to accommodate the larger hull.

There's a Discovery program called Great Engineering Blunders that features these subs.

At 900m each now I'd think they are the most expensive non-Nuclear powered subs ever built , Germany's HDW built Type 212-A subs come in at around 500m each and at least work.....

We just got a new jet aircraft and now they announce another one!!! :o
Looks like the love child of a Typhoon and a Lightning II! Impressive if it works and gets into service by 2035.
