Meet One of the Deadliest Ships on the Sea: The USS George HW Bush

By Reid Mene 17 hours ago

The USS George HW Bush is one of the most deadliest ships on the sea containing some of the most badass planes in the U.S Navy.

The ship is 1092 feet long and towers 20 stories over the Persian Gulf which is where it’s currently located.

This makes it only 158 feet shorter than the Empire State Building.

This ship contains some of the most ferocious warplanes in the entire Navy. Each plane is loaded with thousands of pounds of bombs and missiles.

It takes 4,500 sailors to keep this massive ship running day and night.

In order to keep all these people fed, over 18,000 meals are prepared each day.

After cooking up hot dogs, these soldiers put together bombs capable of leveling a building.

Once the bombs are attached, the planes are ready to head into the war zones of Syria and Iraq.

The jets land every 55 seconds and launch every three minutes. Since the runway is 1/30th of the length of a regular runway, the jets are connected to a catapult allowing them to go from 0 to 184 mph in just two seconds.

Since the ship set sail in February, they have dropped over 250 bombs in Iraq and Syria and have not encountered a serious mishap yet.

As of now they do not know how much longer they will be at sea. ISIS is an adapting force, and they are making it slightly more difficult for our military to find.

But when we do…

In the meantime the soldiers aboard the ship will continue doing what they do best. Killing terrorist and getting jacked.

Former President George Bush, who enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age eighteen back in 1941, approves:

This article has been edited since publication. The ship was originally called the USS George HW Bush Enterprise, now it is correctly listed as the USS George HW Bush. The men on board were called soldiers, and they are now properly described as sailors. We apologize for the errors.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
