 :D LOL :D


I knew about the ability of "lift" over the wings from the Aerospace nerds back in engineering school, but I didn't know about the little 007 pop up power generator.  That's good to know.  :)

I actually went on a gliding tour of Plymouth, MA and the surrounding communities in a miniature ww2 type glider.  My dad asked if there were ever accidents and the guy was like... NOPE (aside from the crashes during normandy I guess).  The next week the guy crashed into a local golf course.

I remember a pan-handler getting on the wrong door of a CTA bus and asking for money. Actually, he gave a very eloquent speech - especially considering the rude bus driver telling me to leave. Several people gave him money and he left.

As we drove off, I saw him pull his missing arm out of his shirt to count his money. :D

Matthies,

The airways are so much safer than roads it's totally illogical to fear flying.

You get into an accident in your car, at 120 mph closing speed, and you also will wear a body bag. The odds of that happening (high-speed head on collision) are much greater per mile than a plane crash.

Okay all this talk of subways and with the high price of gas I decided to take the train into work today. While I dont have any "wonderful nasty stories" like NYC..I will say the ATL has some interesting looking people on the trains..I am not sure who said it was ok to show your belly fat when you have dunlap..(belly done lapped over your pants) but apparently it is a new trend for some full figured ladies. One woman had on black fuzzy house shoes(that made that swishing sound on the concrete you know how slippers sound) a tight green pair of capri pants and a black shirt that was two sizes tooo small. I am convinced her poor stomach was fighting for air. Behind her was a woman at least -I think it was a woman- with short blond hair, aviator shades and a brown leisure suit. I decided whatever friends these ladies had they must not love them,sending them out looking like that.
