    In a world of finite resources, assuming anything is “infinite” is ridiculous.

    A Socio economic discussion about boomers.

    There's a lot of really interesting data on all this stuff, the "whys" are important. Actually, yes. There is only so much wealth that gets distributed. The myth of infinite economic growth is more ridiculous than santa claus or the tooth fairy.

    A Socio economic discussion about boomers.

    All good points, however I think that cell phones are so ingrained into life these days that I would say it's almost a requirement to have one. I know I certainly couldn't do my job without one.

    A Socio economic discussion about boomers.

    51% of Baby Boomers were homeowners at 30, compared with 48% of Gen Xers and 42% of Millenials. Boomers have lived under the most favorable economic conditions in history, yet the other generations are the spoiled ones?

    Definitely worth keeping. While you're at it, it's definitely worth giving USCCA $30/month as well. Right now I think they're giving out a free pelican pistol case and an IFAK.

    Crankshaft failure in flight, lost propeller, no injuries

    This happened in 2011 to a 172 at night between Atmautluak and Bethel as well. The pilot landed it on a frozen lake, someone found the prop on the tundra after the thaw. They sent it out for NDT, found that it was good as new, and stuck it back on the plane.

    The greatest invention in general aviation

    I worked for a company that had a pilot spill a large coffee on the center pedestal of a learjet taxiing out for departure. The cockpit very quickly filled up with smoke, and they ended up evacuating the aircraft. I never heard what the actual $$$ in damage was, but it was somewhere in the 6...
