Su-37 Engine September 14, 2005, 03:30:51 PM 1403
Su-37 engine, 3D vectored thrust nozzle.
T-10 October 07, 2006, 11:21:42 PM 1050
Su-27 prototype.
Su-35 Taking Off October 13, 2008, 12:56:28 PM 983 1
The final Su-35 standard has done without canards, thanks to FCS and engine thrust vectoring improvements.

Here it is taking off from the company's Siberian factory runway. Beautiful, isn't she?
Su-27 - Vertical November 25, 2008, 10:04:27 PM 1127
Su-27 showing off vertical acceleration (high thrust:weight ratio, the plane can accelerate climbing).
AKG K-240 Studio & Roland RH-50 February 19, 2009, 08:20:21 PM 1668
RH-50 are Roland's low-end studio monitor headphones. In spite of which they're quad-driver - they have dedicated tweeters which sound really smooth when the headphones are recabled. Great for saxophones and any treble-based delicate music. RH-50 are much like the K-240 with less detail and an even more raised midrange.

And AKG K-240 Studio are, well, what the name says - studio-standard headphones. Current generation (4th, 55-mm. diaphragms) is quite different from the original, if you want a suggestion, try to hunt down the original silver K-141 or K-240 Sextett (38 mm. diaphragms, K-240 are the circumaural version of K-141) and recable them, then give them a good amp.

You can mix in K-240 (many musicians mix/record in K-271, the closed variant), and frankly, the stock AKG cable is horrid. A replacement cable might cost almost as much as the headphones themselves, but it's worth it.

Looks stealthy enough?
T-50 & Su-35 January 23, 2010, 04:10:43 PM 1202
T-50 & Su-35 parked. Notice the fully rotating fins.

T-50 & F-22 May 19, 2010, 08:22:11 AM 3056
Key differences:

There's a 2-seater planned for the T-50;
The T-50 has a slightly larger (78.8 sq. m. against F-22's 78.04) and better-loaded (330 kg/sq. m. against 340, max. 470 vs. 487) wing, which makes it more agile in dogfight, combined with...
3D thrust-vectoring engines (Saturn Make 117 - no official name for the engines, they're still referred by development code) - the F-22's engines are 2D-vector only;
Improved radar signature, claimed to be smaller than F-22's (0.3-0.4 sq. m. in centimetre-range radar waves vs. F-22's 0.4-0.7);
Higher thrust:weight ratio (traditional for Russian fighters) - 1.19-1.38 combat-loaded, 0.84-0.97 max. weapons+fuel load/max. weapons load (1.17 combat/0.88 max. load for F-22);
Higher internal fuel load, 12500 kg., allowing the T-50 to work as a long-range interceptor with a high supersonic dash speed;
Higher maximum airspeed - 2100-2600 Km/h depending on altitude (most planes can actually go faster than their maximum rated airspeed, but at the risk of airframe damage);
Lighter than the F-22 (yes it's larger, but it also weighs less): 18500 kg. empty (F-22's 19820);
Higher max. G-load (10-11 g against 9.5 for the F-22).

If anything the performance is bound to be improved - the numbers are given for the T-50 prototype, not the production version (compare the T-10 with any Su-27 production variant).

Overall it's pretty similar, but the T-50 is designed to be an agile dogfighter with 3D thrust vectoring, a concept the USAF has forfeit. It has fully mobile fins (whole surfaces move, there're no rudders).

Visiting scorpion. In the bathroom. Already squished.

Housemate kept it for three days or so. Then she released it in the grass near the house's entrance. The poor thing died the next day, of exhaustion.

A chunk of an improvisation. The synth is Zynaddsub-FX.
