Ask the people I’ve been out with (Quora why can't I add emojis I need one right now dammit) Ok serious answer Both normal and wierd at the same time Normal cos their still a person and that wouldn't change if they were “ugly” Wierd cos how tf did I get with someone as flippin hot as ,her It doesn't feel much different to any other relationship that I've been in but then I don't really judge people on how they look as I'm autistic and don't know much about fashion beauty or any other thing that people say makes ,that girl, “peng” So to sum up its not any different to dating someone “ugly” except for the comments you get about their “stunning figure and radiating beauty” from ya mates Hope that helps
This is a complicated question. First, the premise is mistaken. Here’s a comparison of figures of merit for several WWII era V-12 aero-engines, taken from Raymond Young, “The Mercedes-Benz DB-601A Engine,” ,Aviation, ,October 1041, 270ff. ,Aviation Week’s ,archives are available online, but paywalled. As you can see, German and French engines have a smaller swept volume but lower engine speeds, while the Allison engineers have managed to achieve comparable engine speeds and a slightly larger swept volume. Key figures of merit flow from this. The ,Allison V-1710, is the superior engine (with some caveats) up to its limiting altitude, after which the lack of a two-speed supercharger comes into play, and at takeoff, thanks to the MS speed setting of the ,Merlin supercharger, can be optimised better. No direct comparison with the French and German engines is possible, but the decisive difference is that the Merlin is designed for higher-octane fuels, which has nothing to do with the engine itself. Now, I said, “with caveats.” Someone earlier commented that the Allison had superior metallurgy. I do not think that this is correct. Here is a comparison of the composition of the crankshafts of 6 Allied aero-engines, including two makes of the Merlin, from P. Koetzschke, “A German View on Allied Engines,” published in ,Aircraft Engineering, ,September 1941. Good luck on finding this one in your local library. The original, German version was published in ,Luftwissen,, 7 (1940): 5, 149ff. I’ve also thrown in another comparison of figures of merit, because I’m generous that way, and also because I didn’t notice when I was cropping the picture. While the strength (kg/mm) figure of merit is not impressive, Koetzschke specifically points out the highly favourable core strength figure, “probably explained by the high molybdenum content preventing brittleness, in spire of the long nitriding period.” Nitriding was a relatively new technology in 1940, and the British seem to have been unusually good at it. Here is a comparison of cylinder liner compositions. Once again, Rolls-Royce practice stands out from the competition, including the other British manufacturers, It is homogenously heated treated to a very high strength, with a “peculiar sorbitic structure “ . . . “apparently achieved by hardening in a high temperature bath.” Koetzschke calls for this feature to be “particularly noted.” Without going any further into the weeds, it seems clear that Rolls-Royce has the best metallurgical practice of any of the firms examined. That doesn’t include Allison, so I cannot make a direct comparison, but Koetzschke throws considerable shade at American engines for their lack of metallurgical sophistication in the use of alloy steel, and poor detail and finish. Remember that he is comparing them with French and British as well as German engines, so I doubt this is parochialism. Rather, it reflects the small size of the American service and airline budgets. American engines were cheap —something that also afflicted French engines to some extent. For these reasons, I doubt that Allison’s metallurgical practice is much ahead of Wright and Pratt & Whitney. None of this just happened. In a lecture given at de Havilland and summarised in an article in ,Aircraft Engineering, in July 1946, A. C. Lovesay (“Development of the Rolls-Royce Merline from 1939 to 1945,” 218ff) characterised progress at Derby as a “flow process,” with improvements incrementally introduced in such a way as not to interrupt production. The Koetzschke article captures some of these as of the summer of 1940, but they continued. Nor was it just metallurgical improvement: Not by a long shot. Here is a selection of incremental improvements in detailed Merlin component designs carried through at Derby during the war years. These improvements were necessary to sustain steady increases in boost pressure made possible by improvements in avgas octane ratings. These would not have been possible without the two-stage supercharger. Here is a widely disseminated drawing of the two-stage supercharger in the Merlin 61, which you can find online in the September 23rd, 1943 issue of ,Flight,, now ,Flight International, and ,ere is an interesting schematic drawing of some two stage superchargers from a historical article by Gordon-Jones in the same number of ,Flight,, which I’m going to use as an excuse for not digging through my photocopies and finding the precise bibliographic information. The Merlin would not have been susceptible to this scheme of continuous performance increases had it not been accompanied by steady improvements in octane ratings. Since the Germans were unable to improve their avgas similarly, Mercedes-Benz and Jumo did not try to extend the life of their early war, Merlin-sized engines, but rather built steadily larger engines. With all due respect to the excellence of German engineering, this process of constant starting and re-starting cannot have been good for detailed design work. It is also interesting that, in discussing the pressure injection carburetor introduced in 1943, Lovesay notes that the company had a design group do an entire carburetor based on a rival centrifugal pump, ,as was normal at Rolls Royce. ,Worried that the new technology won’t work out? Just put a room full of engineers on the job of designing a complete alternative system, just in case! (Where’s the bug-eye emoji when you need it?) At this point I could say something about “missed opportunities” like the Daimler Benz fuel injection and hydraulic supercharger transmission, or the inverted configuration. Or, more favourably, I could talk about the use of the engine oil cooler to reject wild heat as well as cooling the oil. This was something indulged to extremes by Rolls-Royce rivals, resulting in the loss of as much as 5% of rated power to all the cooling jets and excess oil circulation. But I won’t! No, wait, I just did. Anyway, the point is that there were many design paths and forks where one could go one way or the other, and that Rolls-Royce got some wrong, some are hard to call, and others, it got right. In conclusion, the Merlin was an older and somewhat dated design, rescued by an extravagant allocation of design resources.
I’d ask him about his weekend and try to get him to open up. You need to play detective. I feel like you need to get to know him better before you take it further. I hope he’s available: )
Popularity of texting and driving. Like, sending 5-part emojis while you are on the freeway doing 80. See with Level 2–3 self driving capabilities, humans no longer have to glue their eyes to the road doing two things: keep the right distance in front of you, and keeping the wheels between the lane markings, both so tedious that they really suit better for machines anyway. What this means is, although you still have to spend a solid hour in your car to work, you can actually sit back and relax, and read a book or zone out with some Audible. No big deal? Let me put it this way. You no longer care how far away you live from your work, long as it’s within 1 hr of drive. This is HUGE! Residential real estate prices will have to adjust massively: areas with good parks and schools will see a price hike, while areas with mere quick access to commercial districts will see a price dip. I believe in this because we got a E-class Benz which merely does Level 2 self driving, and already we are taking about buying houses further away from the city. All thanks to machines taking our jobs. Thanks Obama ;)
So important that if created with proper insight, it could fancy some nerdiest of the medical nerds to name a few radiological signs after the brand! Well! ,Does anyone wants to know what happens when nitrogen gas accumulates within gall stones? You get the iconic ‘,Mercedes-Benz Sign,', right there in your gallbladder. The sign however doesn't seems to be iconic at all. Sorry dear readers! This is probably how doctors' eyes perceive a triradiate pattern. XD XD XD……..(Still wandering when would Quora bring in some laughing emojis :( ) . . . Okay now before you report my answer, how about this one??!! A case of acute complicated triple-barrelled aortic dissection: Hope, ,this one makes sense,. Yes the sign, not the case. And if it does, then welcome to club of irrational-spooky-triradiate-pattern-seekers-at-everything. Alright! I'll stop messing around otherwise you'll seriously report this thing. XD Anyways, Mercedes Benz is a phenomenal one of its kind automobile which a person aspires to own once in a lifetime. Hopefully you & I too will;) Thanks for scrolling by:) Have a wonderful day ahead!

Today, most of society is a wealth-driven society. This means if you have the things that provide visual attraction such as swanky cars such as a Bimmer or Benz or whatever any top of the range Apple or Samsung phone (or any such similar brand) any latest gadget from any popular brand, brand clothing and shoes a big new home (bought on a huge amount of loan when the buyer’s annual salary ain’t that much and he can face probable financial struggle trying to manage EMI of house and other financial responsibilities) If you fulfill the above criteria then you are considered a successful person by the majority of society even though you stand at risk to face financial problems in your life. This is not an unwritten rule but over time people are have started sticking to these parameters. Truly speaking, society doesn’t give a damn about you. Today’s it’s you. They will praise, press a like, put a heart emoji reaction, and what not when you post about or tell about your new car, bike, or any pricey gadget. Tomorrow it will be someone else. In the process, everyone thinks that he/she is getting all the attention, love, and respect for their material possession they are showing off in the regular life as well as on social media. For this sole factor I have seen people buy things beyond their means and ask for financial problems. Now, being able to buy high-end items is not a crime. Of course, who doesn’t wish to have nice things with them. There are a few deciding factors though. Now, there are two types of people. FIrst, who have a thorough financial freedom Second, who want all the cool things but are not able to afford them with limited financial sources The first category of people can buy anything they want but usually, these people have enough knowledge of financials and they mostly spend on things they actually need or are passionate about. The second category of people buy things they may not need. They buy just to go in flow with the social media trends and to compete with their peers. Let’s take an example now. The second category of people have the budget of iPhone 11 but just for the social approval and to show their material achievement of buying the latest gadget, they buy the top model Ultra Pro Max of the latest iPhone by taking a loan and by paying a meager amount of downpayment upfront. Now, read carefully from here. Taking a loan is here is not important (at least if you are earning). What’s important is do they have the necessary stable financial sources of income to sustain the EMI and interest in the long run while managing their other day-to-day or monthly expenses.?? If that second category person can easily manage his work with iPhone 11 he/she can happily buy that with no financial strain on him. But most won’t do that on today’s date. Here is where things start to go bad in terms of finance. Hence, we have people buying things that are beyond their means and they fall into a debt trap or other financial problems in their life. Recently, I was listening to a podcast of an experienced billionaire entrepreneur and he said if you’re earning let’s say INR 20,000 per month. Then it is not wise to spend on a phone that costs INR 1,15,000 and take a loan and pay interest over it. In the process, you will end up paying more than the actual cost of the device. Also, what if some economic downplay takes place and you have a single source of income and that gets hit..???!? How do you pay the EMI’s..? Here the first category of financially free people has the upper hand. They have 4 or 5 sources of income. Even if one source gets hit they can happily manage their expenses with the other sources. Some would even create some earning opportunity from any ongoing economical situation and find another mode of income. But in most cases, the second category of financially unaware and wealth-driven mentality people will fret and lose their mind as all the while their mind was on buying materials for social approval or to show off among their peers. I’m not generalizing but if we move our eyes around our society, I’m sure you would agree it happens in most parts of our society. Again, let us take a second example. Have you ever seen the comment section of tech-YouTubers trying to do unboxing and giveaways.?? You will see mostly young folks commenting and requesting the YouTuber to give him that swanky new smartphone for free because he cannot afford it otherwise. See,? they themselves claim that they can't afford the material but still they want to possess it. I can bet that most of them don’t even need that high-end phone or are going to utilize all the pro features of these kinds of phones for their daily smartphone requirements. This happens because these folks don’t know how to differentiate between what they want and what they actually require to get their work done. If you’re someone that require a phone for calls, messaging, internet and music, etc, you can even have all that with the mid-range or starting variants of iPhones, Samsung, and OnePlus, or whatever brand that you prefer. Are you going to utilize the top-end camera for video making every single day unless you’re someone that creates or edits video for a living ?!? Or Are you going to click Astrophotography every single day unless you click such photos for a living on behalf of some magazine or website?!? Then why on earth you are going to pay a fortune for that extra couple of cameras..?!!? No, I am not going to give you a lecture on investing money. The point here is to understand the purpose of your purchase. I often get coaxed by my siblings to buy a four-wheeler for I can afford one now. However, I don’t need a car and I can easily find my ride on a UBER. In fact, we have a neighbor that has travel agencies and at certain times they provide their cars on hire to us when we need it. Maybe someday soon when I actually need to have a car I will buy it. I don’t see the need now to spend on a car and pay a loan for that. I would rather spend that money on buying some other asset or spend a part of it on traveling as it is my passion to travel. Or maybe if my laptop which is a few years old gives up I can get myself a powerful laptop which I require for my work. That doesn’t mean I live ultra below my means. The point again comes down to understanding your requirements. The people or the end-user needs to have a perspective for what they are buying to avoid financial issues later in their life. Since most people do not think properly and go with the wealth-driven mindset of the average society they often end up buying things that they cannot afford. I just gave an example of phones. There can be similar incidents with people buying cars, homes that are beyond their means. I often see on Quora young adults with new jobs talking about eagerly buying new 3-BHKS residential and then facing problems in balancing their salaries in paying of EMIs as well as managing other monthly or emergency financial expenses. See the problem now..? The Social Media Factor Adding to the above, the sheer urge of making a presence on social media for validation of your material achievements have further led most people to go beyond their means and buy stuff they don’t actually require in their day-to-day life or See, I have no issues with people buying anything but when you spend lavishly on things whose material value(depreciation.?) or functional value is going to reduce with respect to time then you should watch what you’re buying unless you have multiple sources of income to sustain that existing product to replace it with a similar product later. You can buy similar products that provide the same quality of service and offer a similar value but at a moderate or fair price. It’s a feasible option. I’m not staying to buy extremely cheap products or rip-offs. That’s never recommended at least by me. Quality always matters. That way you won’t feel that you’ve spent a fortune and how you have to adjust your other expenses for that month or the coming months. I bet most people who buy things beyond their means do realize this at some point in time. Let me give you my own example. I can easily afford a Nike Jordan that costs INR 15,000. However, I am happily using a Reebok which is INR 3000 something. A few years back I was using Sparx sneakers that costed me INR 1500/- See, the point here is I bought them as per my affordability and sensing the requirement. The first category of financially free people thinks about the value the product they buy is going to provide, and up to what time the product will be beneficial to their need. They spend wisely and they have multiple sources of income too. Most people who buy things they cannot afford may not have multiple sources of income with steady in-flow in a regular period of time. There is another group of people that consist of teens and pre-teens. who are yet to understand the value of money, driven by social media followers, likes and show off don’t understand the concept of wealth and the true meaning of financial freedom ask their parent to buy them the expensive stuff like a sports bike or latest iPhone The result is parents going beyond their means to buy expensive stuff for their kids. I have seen parents doing that. It affects the parents who may have limited sources of income and in the long term that also affects the financial decision-making power of that kid when he grows up unless he/she manages to create successful and stable sources of multiple incomes. If these people think they will show off their INR 10,000/- shoes on social media then there will also be folks who will spend INR 40,000/- on a pair of shoes and there is no end to the chase of social media approval, the chase for likes and comments. Once you understand what exact things you actually need for use and what is absolutely unnecessary to spend on then you will never end up buying things whose cost is way above your monthly or annual income and buying which will affect other financial responsibilities that you may have. This was my perspective on the question. Thanks and stay safe.
