One of the main logistical challenges of operating the Queen Elizabeth carriers is of course maintaining the beer stocks in the onboard pub. If the beer runs out...back to port (get it?).

// it returns false
private boolean sign(){

// The sign is a boolean result of the if condition

// that say for the second door to be deadly first must be safe

// the sign returns a boolean 'true', if

// the condition is met. and set the first door as safe and the second door

// deadly. but when it return false, it means condition not met, thus first door

// is not safe (deadly) and second door never assigned false or deadly

// Result in: first door is deadly and second door is safe.

boolean door1 = false; // by the given condition

boolean door2; // never false cause door1 not true

if(door1) { // if the condition is true;

door2 = false; // door1 is safe, door2 is deadly

return true;

}else{// if the condition is false, door1 is false;

door2 = true; // door1 is deadly and door2 is safe

return false; // condition not met;

}

in defense of the chinese aircraft carriers, they use a ski-jump instead of catapults, this method is capable of launch jets but these have to be build specially to take off in the ski-jump runway.

Charles De Gaulle was a fucking egotistical asshole lol. Them naming everything after a man who said “France liberated itself.” pretty much sums up why everyone thinks the French are assholes.

"If this sign is false, what's true about the doors?" By "false" do you mean it's stating the exact opposite of what is true (i.e. this door is deadly and the other door is safe)? Or that some part of it is "false", as in both doors are safe or both doors are deadly? Any of these would render the sign false.
