Lu An Li: Canada, too, with the designs of Doctor Bull for the satellite placed into orbit with the mega-gun was feasible, and a nation such as Canada might have well been in the forefront of space exploration. But it was not to be.

Among them was one published by a major American publisher in 1973, The American Inquisition: 1945-1950, in which the author claimed that he too was a victim of vicious false accusations that he was a Soviet agent.” Brass nerve in English, chutzpah in Yiddish.
Alrenous: ‘Open minded’ means ‘part of my ingroup.’ The limit pushing has been accompanied by limit-pulling on the other side. That is they are a fool or a liar.
