Maybe A Neuroscientist Can Explain It

I’ve gotta laugh.

At myself.

I think there is a lotta material there.

And this isn’t the first time this has happened.

From time to time, I have mentioned some adventures with my old 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL500, a.k.a. “Gabriella”.

About 6 months ago, I lost her electronic key. Scoured the house. Assumed it fell out of my pocket….somewhere. I became resigned to ordering another from the dealer.

Passive Aggression?

California’s Highway 1 is one of my favorite roads.

Absolutely spectacular scenery with generally the mountains or a cliff on one side and the ocean on the other.

The Distress of the Eloi

By lex, on October 6th, 2011

H.G. Wells wrote of a Victorian gentleman visiting the far and distant future, one in which society had devolved into two separate species, the Morlocks – who live and labor under the earth, keeping the world’s machinery and infrastructure intact, and the Eloi, a “child-like, frail group, living a banal life of ease on the surface of the earth..” who, “(having) solved all problems that required strength, intelligence, or virtue, have slowly become dissolute and naive. They are… smaller than modern humans, having shoulder-length curly hair, chins that ran to a point, large eyes, small ears, and small mouths with bright red thin lips. They are of sub-human intelligence, though apparently intelligent enough to speak, and they have a primitive language. They do not perform much work…”

No, they do not perform much work, because they apparently teach school children in San Francisco (which is good work while it lasts):

…you can’t just do that…

Been there, done that. A classic mishmash at JFK.

The airport diagram taxiways are labeled with letters, A for Alpha, you know the drill. Sometimes airplanes and controllers get out of phase.

The A340-600 in the conversation has a long body and wide wingspan, sometimes it can’t make turns and sometimes the taxiway is just too narrow to make 90 degree turns.

I can see the controller and his bottle of heartburn pills in the tower.

Evidently Jesus is the Captain in a JetBlue aircraft…

Chicago Launches Pilot Program to Control Rats

Let’s face it, my state is a national joke. Even worse, my city is a national laughing stock. If I started a blog just detailing the shenanigans in the city, well, I’d have no time to save the world a nautical mile at a time or, for that matter, have a social life.

Also, I’d end up face face down in the Chicago River…but I digress…

6a00d834515c5469e2019b0393586d970d

There are some bright spots but this isn’t one of them:

The city renown for its political corruption has launched a 10-week pilot program to help control the city’s rat population — the rodent kind.

To accomplish this, the infamously crooked Chicago streets and sanitation dispatches a rodent baiting crew to locations identified by service requests. The city also analyzes thousands of calls to predict complaints.

Yeah it’s funded through one of the fascist dictator commissar Bloomberg’s charities but still, this is another example of just how clueless the ruling class is in this city and now, through no small amount vote fraud, nationally.

So in that spirit, the funniest comment wins the internet. Have at it!

Sequestration Air Show

blues_beach_show_mockup_1024x1024

The Blues won’t be flying in the Pensacola Beach Air Show this year.

They will be sitting this one out. It will be the Red, White, and No Blues Sequestration Air Show.

Do believe if you click it should embiggify. Cool T-shirt.

I tagged this one with buffoonery and idiots among us because we all know the who and why of it all. Maybe just Idiot among us.

Someone cut the tours of the White House and the Blue Angels schedule, then spent 60 to 100 millions of taxpayer dollars to see Africa up close and personal.

Idiots Among Us

Yes, Idiots Among Us is one of the categories on this web page. I found a candidate.

Forgive me for leaving the aviation focus we share for this topic, but dang it, this scares the h e double hockey stick outta me. This man, you can clearly identify him for yourself, is a powerful politician. We all know of the scandalous IRS conduct that has impeded groups that were simply asking for the same status enjoyed by other tax exempt organizations.

We are now informed that it is their own fault for applying in the first place.

Those of you who live in Seattle and Edmonds, he’s all yours.

Comments are welcome. Try and be G-rated, otherwise the IRS might come after you. It would be your own fault, you know.
