    Ahahaha! She thinks we're spraying heavy metals! LOL! She has no clue!
    (Although I don't like that she is raising awareness of our activities.)

    Yes, but the head fake is critical to the "it's just a vapor trail" cover story.

    If you know you drew the placebo then it's not double blind and therefore all results are invalid. I've been working on a new study protocol and hope to have it implemented as soon as I can convince TPTB which means convincing them the current study is flawed and that, as you know, is tricky business.

    You’re correct, of course, but for everyone who hasn’t switched to the ceramic nozzles it’s pretty easy to tell since the placebo doesn’t corrode the metal tips like the real stuff.

    Who said "validity" was relevant to this program? Like they said at the spring conference in Vegas, the motto is, "Let us spray."

    Did everyone get the email about Formula 1 being added to the spraying program?

    I thought we agreed not to post the motto on this forum? It sounds too much like religious text which is against the RoC.

    He omitted the “Come, brethren,...” opening so it should be acceptable.

    The Vegas conference was the best yet. For anyone that missed it, they had the team that faked the moon landing as guest speakers.

    That was great, but I really loved the keynote address that D B Cooper gave.

    Do we have a POA table in the hospitality suite again?

    Oh I gotta attend and hear how he did it! Also hearing Jimmy Hoffa may be a surprise guest speaker. I will be there, too good not to!

    Still waiting to hear whether they were able to book the Dead Kennedys to play at the party Saturday night.

    Hardy har har. There's some serious thread drift in here. Hello, mods?

    And, no. Formula 1 is not part of the team. The pics you see have CONTRAILS. Big difference.

    Reminds me, I have to talk to our coordinator about the sub standard bourbon and scotch they provided last year. If I play my cards right, Blanton's and Dalwhinnie for everyone!

    Has anyone used a ferry fuel tank to carry extra Chem? I'm thinking about installing quick disconnect fittings so it's easy to snap inline. Wondering if anyone has already done this. Single pilot I can carry an extra 125 gallons.

    Ok, so this is a bad idea on so many levels.

    First of all, it simply isn't safe for most of us (what are flying that you think you can add and extra 700+ pounds of live load?); secondly, the increased load dispersion without proper authorization and (more importantly) coordination, can completely skew the modeling and validation protocols. Bad, bad idea.

    Plus, all that aside, you cannot apply for payment for any overages of greater than ten percent without having prior approval - and you know that simply isn't happening.

    Don't try to game the system. It's set up like it is for many very good reasons.

    Oh, Hell no! I tried it, flubbed a connection, and it leaked all over me - and no chemical warfare ensemble on board, of course.

    Spent six weeks in decontamination, and it was two years before I stopped buying brie and Stella Artois. . .I still get an occasionsl urge to purchase tasteful cooking utenzils and Volvos.

    Hey folks, watch the mix instructions carefully. Last week we were laying down our first lines and the mix was not blending properly with the natural clouds. It took a few passes before we got the condensation nuclei ratio correct, but once we did the results were very natural looking.

    Surprised you didn't get the correct blending initially. Were you still using some of the October formula? As we progress toward the cooler months, the formula is adjusted a bit for the lower temps, so it would make sense that an older mix didn't blend quite right.

    Nope, this was all November, and we were meticulous in the prep. It makes me wonder if there's a QC issue on the base stock.

    Interesting.

    If you have a little left, send a sample back with a problem description on a non-conforming material tag. Might be interesting to see if others are having the same issue and whether it's tied to a particular lot code.

    I just landed from the first two hours this morning. The ladder-pattern that ATC approved across the Sky Harbor flight path really surprised me. I didn't think I could interlace with the incoming jet traffic that well. Props to the team that made it look effortless.

    I'm really glad to live in AZ. Being in a toss-up state means my bonus dollars will help purchase that new ADS-B unit.

    I heard that some of the positive displacement pipettes used just after the supercritical carbon dioxide fluid extraction step contained impure compounds resulting in contamination of some of the lots, but I haven't been able to confirm this, and if true, somebody let the bad lots slip by. Maybe the same person who bought those Made in China pipettes.

    Careful. Political posts are a violation of the Forum Rules of Conduct, and will get this thread locked.

    I'm really surprised no one ever said anything about that over-spray incident a few years ago and Sen McCain's cancer.

    Didn't the report from the failure review board conclude it was a software timing issue? Something about the system clock and GPS time being out of sync, I think.

    I may be in the wrong group, but I have been spraying Starbucks-tastes-great and Taylor-Swift-can-sing blends all summer. Anyone else here from Section C?

    Wait - aren’t those two the same formula?
