    Of all the fishes in the sea,
    I’d rather be a bass.
    I’d crawl up on my hands and knees,
    And slide down on my…

    whattaya want, poetry or prose?

    Planes going to Toronto. Blond sits down in first class. The stew asks to see her ticket. It's economy. Tells her she must go back to economy. She says "I'm blond, I'm beautiful, I'm going to Toronto and I'm staying right here. Stew goes up to the cockpit and tells them about it. Copilot goes back and tries. Same thing. I'm blond, I'm beautiful, I'm going to Toronto and I'm staying right here. Goes back to cockpit and tells the captain maybe we should call ahead and have security meet us at the gate and bust her for disobeying the crew. Captain says, you say she is blond. I'll handle this. I'm married to a blond. I speak blond. He goes back and whispers in her ear. She gets up and moves back to economy. Copilot and stew ask him what he said. I told her First Class is going to Montreal, economy is going to Toronto

    In these days of gender confusion, it can be easy to mix up "blond" and "blonde." Perhaps it would be best if the golden-hair persons told us which they prefer, along with preferred pronouns. To avoid the inevitable sexism of the term altogether, maybe we should just spell it "blahnd."

    Bob says it’s Blonde. That’s good enough for me.

    If you’re a fair-haired lad it’s blond, if you’re a lass it’s blonde. French derivatives, don’tcha know....

    I may have seen it on here, but I remember a good tip if you're with a short woman. Keep the guns on the fridge. It may not stop her, but you'll hear her dragging a chair over there and have time to run!

    Instructor (Steve): "Mike is the current information.".
    Student (Carl): "Umm, ok, here goes...'XYZ Ground, Skyhawk N12345 is at GA parking ready to taxi with Steve'."
    Ground Control: "Skyhawk N12345, say again current information?"
    Instructor (Steve) : "MIKE!"
    Student (Carl) : "My name is CARL sir."
    Instructor (Steve) : "Uhhhgg, not your name or my name...Just start over, and remember its INFORMATION MIKE."

    There's one based in Madison. It's owned by a guy, Al W, whose father was a Tuskegee Airman. He let me sit in it and drool on it and all that... Very very cool airplane.

    The first time I saw it, I thought it was a composite experimental. Nope... It was certified, but they only built 13 of them. And I thought it was composite because there are no rivets:

    IMG_0292.JPG

    The internal structure of the wing is built, the outer skin is cut from a single sheet of aluminum, and then wrapped around the innards and *glued* on. Very unusual.

    Also, note the derringer art on the nacelle.

    IMG_0293.JPG

    Another thing they did to lower drag - There are steps behind both wings to help you get up and in, and those steps retract into the fuselage via cables/pulleys actuated when you close the canopy.

    Another thing that's rare about it - It's a two-seat twin. Not a ton of those exist.

    It's a really cool airplane, and unfortunate that they didn't make more.

    Al is a fan of rare airplanes - His other plane is a Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm BO-209 (102 built). And he takes impeccable care of both of them.

    Champion Lancer is another one…all of them built don’t add up to much more than a ton. ;)

    But don't charge it during the peak hours of the heat of the day. You can charge it at night when the grid is not strained.

    OK.
