Global warming. Nothing starts a giant multipage argument like global warming.

Re: Just felt like trolling....

Just checked back in this morning after being on the go all day yesterday...

And.. I have to admit.. you guys are creative. Good show.

Man.. the new tires on the motorcycle make all the difference in the world. Maybe I shouldn't let them go to 12,000 miles next time...

Between tires, oil change, service, inspection and all that.. I'm starting to think flying might be cheaper than riding the bike..

Even Hardley Davidsons are inexpensive compared to airplanes (though airplane tires aren't all that expensive, really).

I'm thinking an overhead approach while slipping with flaps on oxygen at Leadville in a King Air 90 while debating proper phraseology with ATC with an expired medical at night would probably do the trick.

Can anyone top that??

Good flying day down here on the third coast. Wish I was current.

Roll to the end, turn 180 degrees, full stop, full throttle and take off opposite direction for another round. Repeat until you're dizzy. License and medical left at home. No call to FSS. All avionics turned off. No sectional. No AFD. When done, pull the mixture on rollout and shut everything down before it stops rolling. Leave the airplane parked in the middle of the runway where it stops all day long until night. Leave the keys on top of the panel and the door unlocked. Never take the keys out of the plane or lock the door for decades. Let an unsupervised 15 year old kid taxi the plane to the end of the runway to wash it.

If that doesn't get you sent straight to webboard hell, nothing will.
We have a new pace setter. Good Job...

I hope you put the same brand and type on the front and back. Mixing brands is unsafe. I was told this by a local motorcycle shop.

I didn't notice any difference in the ride when I put new tires on. But the tires were replaced primarily because of sidewall cracking rather than treadlife.

The front was cupped. Made it a little interesting laying over in turns. It was time.

Re: Just felt like trolling....

Verizon is planning to roll out their latest feature for cell phones on May 31st. It's new functions for the * and # keys! Whenever you make a call and get a busy signal, you'll be able to press the * key and listen in on the conversation. If you feel your call is more important, you press the # key. It will disconnect the call and put yours through.

All of the above without seat belts on and of course that means they got stuck in the door and are banging against the plane.

Fred Astaire could really dance, but Ginger Rogers did just as much, and backwards, in heels!
