Impressive. But wouldn’t it have been easier to get the shark out of the pool??
You mean “courts-martial”?
Well, Wilkins’s experiment worked three centuries later, but between Russia and the United States.
That 77 number seems totally bogus to me, but I guess it depends on what you consider “saving a life”.
That is quite the abnormally high number of drowning victims for one lifeguard during the few years Ronald Reagan would have been in high school. Most lifeguards maybe save one or two people a year – what the heck was going on at that beach?
Jules Verne must have found Wilkins’ notes, and used them as the basis for “From The Earth To The Moon.”
Wilkins was the brother-in-law of none other than Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell: https://web.archive.org/web/20090509103750/http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/cromwells-moonshot-how-one-jacobean-scientist-tried-to-kick-off-the-space-race-535171.html
We get Wohn Jilkins. Interesting that he proposed the idea of space travel back then and made flying vehicles back then, but I wonder how long it took mankind to figure out that space was an airless vacuum.
Take care and may God bless.
Dutch sure had a lot of brain dead schoolmates to have 77 non-swimmers!
Yeah but he didn’t call it “space travel.” He called it “getting to freaking hell away from my mother-in-law.”
So President Reagan was a hero in High School also!
If you draft all the criminals and ship them overseas, there’s less crime at home.
Sounds like voodoo life-saving to me.
Thanks for reading! seems like today it’s ok to use both…https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/court-martial
And, years later, Ronald Reagan instituted the first tax on savings account interest therby giving a HUGE helping hand to the middle class.
I think you mean "responded to 77 incidents ". I had a really good lawyer one time who told me, “when we get to court, you can not lie. But you can certainly exaggerate a bit.”
I’m appalled by the protracted discussion over minor matters of no lasting consequence, especially the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, a totalitarian regime whose 7 decades of persistent failure featuring the occasional mass murder and continually-operating secret police should show any thinking person with an ounce of integrity that Marxism Is Bad. ™
It’s “courts-martial”, people.
Really, I’m disappointed in all of you.
