DE: The Soviets seem to have difficulty implementing modern technology.
Would you comment on that?

Belenko: Well, lets talk about aircraft engine lifetime. When I flew the
MiG-25, its engines had a total lifetime of 250 hours.

DE: Is that mean-time-between-failure?

Belenko: No, the engine is finished; it is scrapped.

DE: You mean they pull it out and throw it away, not even overhauling it?

Belenko: That is correct. Overhaul is too expensive.

DE: That is absurdly low by free world standards.

Belenko: I know.

It is inconceivable that a judicious observer from another solar system
would see in our species -- which has tended to be cruel, destructive,
wasteful, and irrational -- the crown and apex of cosmic evolution.
Viewing us as the culmination of *anything* is grotesque; viewing us
as a transitional species makes more sense -- and gives us more hope.
-- Betty McCollister, "Our Transitional Species",
Free Inquiry magazine, Vol. 8, No. 1

"The triumph of libertarian anarchy is nearly (in historical terms) at
hand... *if* we can keep the Left from selling us into slavery and the
Right from blowing us up for, say, the next twenty years."
-- Eric Rayman, usenet guy, about nanotechnology
