    Wow, just wow. It amazes me what some people consider acceptable.

    Fricken degenerate. Unable to relate to a full grown, mature woman. 7 years isn't enough.

    “Mell's legal team argued that he is a 'humble man' who was on 'multiple anti-depressants'”...and apparently falsified his medical application?

    When I earned my PPL I committed to landing at every paved, public airport in my home state of Washington. Since 2001 I have 89 in WA with 16 remaining, and 47 in other states and countries. My plan for the summer just ended was to bag most of the WA remaining. Unfortunately, life intervened. Hopefully, I can bag a few over the fall and winter.

    In the context of this thread, that sounds pretty nefarious.

    Apparently you don’t realize: if you don’t like the content of a thread, there’s a “back button” on your browser. It works wonders.

    Y'all ever hear that comm from the pilot that was going to off himself because he had done some bad things to some young boys?

    His buddy talked him down over the radio but it took a long time. I dunno this reminded me of that. Some sick people out there.

    Just wanted to distract from the distressing actual subject of the thread. And it is a suggested alternative "For those wondering what to do once they earn their private."

    I was wondering that myself...

    But, it sounds from the article like it only happened on the airplane once, and that she "gave in" and had a semi-consensual (not from the legal perspective) relationship with him over the course of an entire summer.

    There was absolutely nothing wrong with that cigar.
    Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar. And for those in the know, it was a Dominican, La Aurora 100 Anos Centenario Corona #4. They were a celebratory, special release from La Aurora, the first Dominican cigar manufacturer (1903), for their 100th anniversary. I bought a number of boxes in the early 2000's when they were cheap. They were great then, they are suburb now. As good as any Cuban.

    aÑos bud, años. Anos is Spanish plural for Anus, which might not be most timely occasion to use that word in the context of cigars!

    No worries, my Anglo Oklahoman wife is a treat back home during new years when she attempts to practice her spanish by wishing everyone "Happy new Anus everybody!" :D I let it go the first couple years, but the third year the family was like 'look man you gotta clue her in.." It was fun while it lasted...:D

    Oops! Other than copy and paste your ñ, I have no idea how to insert it. Wait! Maybe that wasn't the right thing to say either!

    At this point, I'll just shut up and let it ride.

    On mobile devices, hold down the n and it will give you different "n" options. On a Windows PC hold down the ALT key and on the number keypad, (not the row of numbers) type in 0241. Or type in charmap in your search off the start button, and copy/paste from there. On Mac, I dunno...

    Once I get my PPL, I’m getting my IFR. After that, complex and high power. Then there’s seaplane and MEL and ME seaplane (I think). By then I should be close enough in hours to get my commercial. After that, CFI and CFII. Somewhere along the way I await to finish a EAB project plane and build a EAB plane from start to finish.

    And, fly my YF and favorite MIL to various destinations.

    Multiple times, waited 3 years to make a complaint, creep is worth big bucks, what would happen to the $$ from the lawsuit if it was settled before or after she was 18? How much was the guy worth when she was 15 vs now?

    The dude is a creep, the “victim” is also less than a ideal human.

    We should get back to the exile days, find some random island and just send people like those two there, worked well for Australia

    Five words: 16 will get you 20!
    Finally, the merest thought of anything like that hasn’t even begun to percolate into my brain!
