Odd Items for Sale on the Net #1,237,985


A Microturbo TRS18 small jet thrust engine, used in missiles and target drones (is any kitchen complete without one???). HOT NEWS - this engine has been SOLD to a friend who has a real use for it. -- The Corestore - Turbines!!
Thank God we live in a society where no crushing of dissent is tolerated. A more repressive regime might actually have sent agents to interview the owner of Corestore:

"Sir, we note you have sold a turbine engine used in missiles and target drones to a friend who has a real use for it. It you would not mind, please tell us the name of this friend, the use he has for it, and the address of his local mosque."

You are right about the kitchen. Set it up to burn vegetable oil, and it can be a point-and-shoot broiler.

That little engine is used in a manned airplane, the world's smallest jet, that teaches the military how to detect, intercept and destroy terrorist-fired cruise missiles. Unfortunately, our friends the French do not want to sell any more to the company that flies the planes. What a country, eh? I guess we'll have to wait for the Germans to invade them again so we can tell them to throw wine bottles at them.
