    21-31k per flight hour. Compare that to others.

    Eurofighter 18.000(max)
    Rafale 16.500
    F-18E/F 11.000
    F-16 7.700
    Gripen 4.700

    page 7(I know it's from Saab, but Jane's is generally considered to be one of the more reliable aircraft consultant businesses around), the link is the basic presentation(done in Farnborough, UK, 2012) of the new Gripen btw! Interesting for anyone who likes aircrafts!

    Such an agile little sweetheart! ;P

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
