    There actually is a logical answer to that question. The people who make the faceplate for the machines just make one type for all of them.

    but you probably already knew that

    And that’s such a dull explanation. I like mine better.

    It says that if you cannot read the card you have to contact a crew member. But how do you know if you cannot read it? Are there similar cards in other aircrafts?

    I do understand the problem with that card. It has been quite some time since I’ve flown in the big aluminum tube, but I recall similar cards on other aircrat types. But, I certainly could be mistaken.

    I'm betting the braille is just silliness, because the interface is completely dependent on being able to read on screen menus.

    We had a construction manager that had a custom sign put up, in English and Braille, that said "Caution, open shaft to ground floor", on a locked access panel to a plumbing riser shaft that was 2' square and 3' off the ground, in a commercial office building. Because we might have blind plumbers work on the system? I asked him why his second language was Braille and not Spanish, and he replied that the Spanish speaking plumbers could just look down after they unlocked and opened the door...no kidding.

    A Pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.
    The Pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again and it won again.
    The local paper read: PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.
    The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.
    The next day the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.
    This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Pastor to get
    rid of the donkey.
    The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a nearby convent.
    The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.
    The Bishop fainted.
    He informed the Nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey so she sold it to a farm for $10.
    The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10
    This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
    The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.
    The Bishop was buried the next day.
    The moral of the story is . . . being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery and even shorten your life.
    So be yourself and enjoy life.
    Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and just cover your own !!!
    You'll be a lot happier and live longer!

    My wife, Julie, had been after me for several weeks to varnish the wooden
    seat on our toilet.

    Finally, I got around to doing it while Julie was out. After finishing, I
    left to take care of another matter Before she returned.

    She came in and undressed to take a shower. Before getting in the shower,
    she sat on the toilet.

    As she tried to stand up, she realized that the not-quite-dry epoxy paint
    had glued her to the toilet seat.

    About that time, I got home and realized her predicament. We both pushed and
    pulled without any success whatsoever.

    Finally, in desperation, I undid the toilet seat bolts. Julie wrapped a
    sheet around herself. I drove her to the hospital emergency room.

    The ER Doctor got her into a position where he could study how to free her
    (Try to get a mental picture of this.). Julie tried to lighten the
    embarrassment of it all by saying, "Well, Doctor, I'll bet you've never
    seen anything like this before."

    The Doctor replied, "Actually, I've seen lots of them...... I just never
    saw one mounted and framed."

    Cannot determine the veracity of this but....

    I was practicing some landings after sundown at an untowered airport in florida on Friday. Everything goes smoothly, completely standard flight. I get out of the plane and start tying down after the flight, and after walking inside I see a man in a uniform asking if I had just been landing in a white plane. At first I thought I might be getting ramp checked, and said I was. I asked if he was an ASI.

    Turns out it's a normal street cop. He asks how I'm doing and if everything is OK. I reply that yes, everything was fine, and ask if something was wrong?

    He replies that he saw me landing since he was parked near the approach end of the runway outside the airport, and saw me land even though there were red lights to the left of the runway. He admits that he doesn't know much about this kind of thing, but says that he'd imagine that seeing red lights on a runway wasn't good.

    I'm super confused because didn't see any red lights,

    and don't even know of any lights that would stop me

    from landing other than a light gun, which this airport

    doesn't have on account if it being UNTOWERED. After asking him exactly what he thinks happens, followed by a bit of back and forth I realized what the problem was. He saw the PAPI lights, and since he was on the ground they looked red...

    I explain this to him, show him the PHAK diagram and tell him how it works, and tell him that everything was fine. After a bit of convincing he admitted that he was outside of his domain and apologized, then he left.

    TLDR: Cop sees papi lights and thinks it works like a red light at an intersection.
