Senator Robert Kennedy used an 'applause prompter' at gatherings when he was running for President.  I went to see him talk at an airport and I was standing by a big speaker.  He delivered his speech and every once in awhile the crowd would break out in applause but it was strange because I could hear the roar of the crowd coming out of that speaker before anyone behind me would clap or cheer.  Of course everyone was like lemmings, and fell into cheering once that speaker thing prompted them to do so.

interesting.

So do three artichokes, nine whores, and thirty politicians. For a total of 45. Think about it.

I'm in.

I think the ones on the 787 are okay, but the A380...



I remember that. Qantas wasn't it? Quite a stir in the blame game I understand.

If I remember rightly it was a manufacturer error, because they found more engines at other airlines with the same issue that caused the failure.

There is a lot of disgust amongst Australian pilots over the captain taking so much credit and being in the spotlight so much. I did hear that he was married to a publicist or someone else in pr and that's why that happened.

you're awkward and have trouble forging relationships.

I remember it differently.



we get it.

... is this the same 'we' that found Johnathan Reed to be offering a compelling tale?


Look, it's adorable how you're frontin' that somehow everything you read is 100% true and accurate except when it isn't, but come on--methinks the BOFH doth protest too much.

Moonraker holds the world record for the largest number of zero gravity wires in one scene. The scene in the Venice glass factory also holds the record for the largest amount of break-away sugar glass used in a single scene.
