When people aren't bickering, jerry knows his shit. RMR people don't help
much when it comes to flame wars no matter where it originated from. He
seems to always bring up good points whether or not they are popular
discussion pieces.

Well, should I twiddle my thumbs and wait to die, or launch rockets!
Sorry about the potato comment, not very NAR or TRIPOLI friendly of me.
 I am clueless as to your references however, friends of yours?

Yep, but throttling a solid fuel rocket motor can be tedious. I'd say go
for liquid bipropellant. Of course, that is way more complicated than
solid fuel.

No thanks. I'd rather not rely on a solid fuel rocket motor to get me
into space. If you had a ride on, let's say, a Saturn V booster - then
we're talking! :-)

We will have to agree to disagree on that point.  No big
deal, difference of opinion is what makes a horse race...;-)

Tell me, Mr. Potatohead, just how many people in how many NGs have you
added to your killfile? Have you ever considered that maybe the
problem is you? <beg>

Then you are a coward. Or at least just unable to see reason. I am not
saying Jerry is a good guy. I do not know him. But he has the guts to ask
the questions nobody else will. I am not saying some of the stuff the spews
onto his keyboard didn't come out of his rear, but allot of it I gather does
not. Whether you like it or not, he sometimes brings up good points, and
again, whether or not you like it, or like him as a person, he knows his
shit about rocketry. He is very knowledgeable about rocket motors, the
design and construction of them.
The rest is political type mumbo... but he is a very knowledgeable person.
If people would quit the ***fests, and have rational discussions with him,
even if he is way off in left field on some points, something might be
learned. Left fielders are sometimes what It takes to find reasonable
solutions. I am one of them :-)

Why not? It seems to me that liquid fuel rockets are vastly more complex and
thus more likely to fail. Is the ability to throttle the rocket that important?

He does have a point with regards to getting back from space. If you over
shoot and start drifting into space, with no way to turn the bird around and
re-enter. Then you starve to death(or worse) if nobody can come and get you.
Unless a friendly neighborhood alien type dude came to your rescue :-)

Man, you guys (gals?) are nothing if not entertaining...

I bet we'd have us a ball in a liquor store (or shortly there after).

Oh gene'o dear you know you're still number one, but shrox industria just
wanna have fun... fun... wanna have fun... fun... wanna have...

With all due apologies to Cyndi...

I have posted this link before but what the heck.  From the website:

Again we will have to agree to disagree.  if you find
Jerry's contribution valuable, fine by me, I simply do not
think it is worth wading through the endless streams of
bile, invective and dingbattery to find the occasional gem.
if you find that a good use of your time, then by all means
continue.
