As for PR, clearing the road is a big part of the logistics problem.

Bet I can find the right button quicker. These computerized machines, they speak to me. If they ain't got a computer I can't hear them though. Smile

The button is clearly marked: IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DIE TODAY, PASSENGER...

747's now know how to land themselves. You just have to know how to give the computer the go ahead. I'm thinking I'd have a better chance of landing one than you and I don't even drive a car. Tongue

That' s assuming you have a working ground assist RLS system....

Let's assume all you have is stick and rudder and a nice big flat spot....

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Not this white boy....

I'm betting I'd probably bend some expensive shit, but I'd walk away from the landing...

Limping probably....

But I do that already..

First week at pilot school at Pensacola, Florida, 1943, they had a sign up in the classroom.

There are times one should respect your constitution, and there are other times, ya know, its all about priorities. Big Grin

There's a class of person... people who get the job done. And they'll do it however the fuck they need to, with whatever resources are handy. I've known a few such. And then there's another class of person, people who can't do the simplest goddamn thing, because Form IIIA is incorrectly stamped. I've known waaaay too many of the latter.

As we would say in the Air Force, "it's better to ask forgiveness than permission."

Considering Irma brushed it a couple of weeks ago, and Maria was spotted even before then, the question is, why weren't we ready? Load the ships, station them outside but nearby ready to respond.

Probably had something to do with the NFL tragedy ... people sitting during the anthem! Holy shit.

"Let them eat cake" ... ring a bell? Nero fiddling ... right?

The sonofabitch has got a job to do. Put the goddamned smartphone down and get to work already.

Puerto Ricans cannot vote in Presidential elections.
