    Apparently I can be a codebreaker too. Just take a random sentence and arbitrarily assign a completely different meaning to it. Sweet!! It'll come in handy in POA discussions as well.

    Oh hell, pilots here can tell you straight out exactly what they're thinking...and most of the time I still have no idea what they mean.

    I’m still convinced that DB Cooper was Richard McCoy.

    Oh, please.

    And Hitler died in South America.

    And Amelia Earhart...

    Not sure why they are looking for her, she'd be 121, and long past dead.

    You don’t know that. Maybe the tropical climate on some unknown remote desert island and eating only fish and fruit has a positive effect on longevity. She could be alive.

    “He was trying to prove that he was smarter than anyone else. But he couldn’t fight 1500 years of brainpower on our team.”

    What is 1500 years of brainpower? Does he mean years of collective experience? If so, I wouldn’t be bragging that it took all of that to catch a single person.

    The "collective" experience nonsense always amuses me. Was that 150 ten year olds? 75 twenty year olds? 1500 guys who have been doing this for a year? Some things don't scale horizontally.

    That is what I got out of the article as well.

    And getting a court order to force the FBI to turn over information..??? I think the rest of the people call it "Freedom of Information Act".....

    That article is almost as convincing as the photo of "Amelia Earhart" taken from the back a hundred feet away and years before she disappeared, or the blow up of pixels at the bottom of a lagoon that can be imagined to be the shape of her airplane.

    You do realize that this confession can prevent you from being an ATP due to the "good moral character " clause?

    I'll not decode it publicly, so you have the opportunity to retract your confession.

    You realize it's a joke in that the post Maule quoted is benign, but due to Maule's impeccable code cracking skills that quoted post really means something different and nefarious according to his code breaking abilities.

    Just like your post. Damn Ryan, you kiss your mother with that mouth?

    Eh, always hard to tell with the amount of poo flinging that goes on here, especially without the use of emotions! :)

    If anything, I think emotions get used all too much around here! ;)
