I've lurked /k/ for a while and feel that this thread is badly needed. Commonly asked questions and comments will be answered by myself. Feel free to follow up with whatever you are curious about.
>Why does it have a ski-ramp instead of a catapult? Catapults give you a bigger payload and range!
This comes down to funding. The RN can currently afford two conventional STOVL carriers or one nuclear/CATOBAR carrier. Top priority is to have two carriers in order to have one always ready at sea. Furthermore STOVL allows fast sortie generation, only the really huge American 4-catapult carriers can launch planes faster. The QE is capable of launching a plane every 30 seconds. While range/payload of the F-35B is less than the C it still provides damn good power projection. Bear in mind the F-35B is replacing the Harrier and the 70,600tn QE is replacing the 20,000tn Invincible Class.
>Hahaha but still the Bongs will NEVER have a CATOBAR carrier they'll be stuck with ramps and F-35Bs for 50 years!
The QE was built to allow future upgrades of up to 5,600 tonnes extra displacement meaning that if the RN need the capability and have the funds, they can install catapults and traps to make the QE CATOBAR. This was confirmed by the Commander of the QE himself during a Q&A session.

Welcome to Project Europa, an ambitious and dedicated community fueled on the idea of creating a physical nation built from the ground up on an offshore island.
Visit http://projecteuropa.boards.net/ for more info.
This community's ideological outlook is to establish a nation of hard-working individuals to build a place of protection, free rights, growth in fields such as education, agriculture, trade, military/civilian strength, manufacturing and other traits that will lead to a prosperous community of individuals to create an entirely new country that wishes to leave impressions on the world of how even the smallest of nations can prosper into a working, strong, and developed land built from the soil upwards.
As an international effort from many people around the world, donating, establishing fundraisers, progressively planning and strategizing on how to make this a reality, we find ourselves exceeding in many fields that can support a legitimate colonization of this island for the future. As many of the founders of this idea have derived from the pro-gun community on 4chan.org (/k/), we have set down the building blocks to an idea that can be accomplished if only we stick together as a team to complete our goals.
As of yet, our site is still developing, we are still coming up with new ideas, planning and when we are completely situated, enact our donation and fundraising projects, and effectively establish a system of leadership and government. Until then, more will be added here. The future starts with you, feel free to add yourself into the equation.

I'm a britbong who wants to move to the US one day. I'm trying to get into geology, and I'll probably have an MSci in geology when I move to the US. So I'm looking for a State which has a good outlook for geology careers, decent gun laws, nice outdoor space and some dinosaur fossils. I heard Montana and North Dakota are good options, Anyone willing to help?

Im no fan of the police but to be honest muh privilege = never really had to deal with em either.
That being said, I don't really mind larger cities having these armored personnel carriers. The pundits are freaking out, calling em 'tanks' and wotnot, and I agree they look 1984esque, but all it is is a big armored car.
Don't banks send big armored trucks w/AR toting security to service their ATMs?
Also, has anyone seen footage of the cops in Ferguson with their rifles? Why the fuck are they constantly shown training their sights on the protestors?
Like, fuck, isn't the first rule of gun safety is to point at things you intend to shoot, shoot only when you mean to kill. What a bunch of amateurs, no wonder its all fucked.
