* majority of people are right handed. People passed on left so sword hand was towards an unknown on-comer. This is why driving on the left is correct :-) And the shield was worn with the left hand, and you wanted to have it between your body and an unknown on-comer. This is why driving on the righ...Jump to post
Well, the Democrats tried to frame Trump and failed so now they are not skipping a beat and continuing there agenda of lies and hate to find ANYTHING they can to discredit him. Didn't the two years of lies from the Democrat owned media and the Democrats themselves tell anyone how despicable the Lef...Jump to post
is an example of a severe fire which destroyed almost the whole terminal complex. It happened at DUS in 1996.
It would be faster if I would tell the frenzies that I care about. But then again, I'm at a loss to name even one. It's my way of insurgency against the marketing evil: "If it's a hype, I'm out."
I don't think that I have missed a lot.
A) Your favorite airport may offer an apron tour for the interested public. Fraport, e.g., does it - they even offer a dedicated airport firestation tour. I was on one some 15 years ago,however, so I have no idea if it is good for taking pictures anymore. B) You may simply call the PR department and...Jump to post

It's not a good time for an airplane manufacturer to have a party when one of your products has just fallen out of the sky. I remember a similar coincidence 20 years ago when one of our high speed train crashed with 100 fatalities. A day or so later French national railways SNCF cancelled some big c...Jump to post
He loves his wife so much that he doesn't want to bother her with his wish to have sex and instead employs a paid hooker for that. In that regard, Stormy did Melania a huge favour.Jump to post

Wow. Just wow. I browsed through some pages, but honestly, it got boring after some time, fantasy story after fantasy story, but when it comes to the beef, nothing is left.

Oh, that's too funny! Today is national holiday anyway - nobody is working (probably except for the DVD: They are creating havoc to disturb the carnival parades by means of a storm front and kill as many enemies as possible) so I have time to read some good stuff.Jump to post
EA401 was a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar, Chris. I've commented on that crash in my book. There is no credible explanation for the flight engineer's actions other than that he was suborned. He was in a position to check that the nose-gear was down and locked. The DVD had picked up on a design flaw in th...Jump to post
After high school I applied for an apprenticeship in a big manufacturing company. They openly stated that having the choice between two equally qualified candidates they would prefer the one with a relative (father, mother, etc) in the company. It was their way of improving job satisfaction. It's ok...Jump to post

Hello. On my last flight, I met a beautiful girl, but did not manage to take her phone from her. How can I find her? If you would have taken her phone from her, it would be considered theft. In that case, it'd be better for you that you don't find her... Having said that, buying a snowglobe is a gr...Jump to post
All this confirms my theory that 50 % of all clergymen (most certainly from all religions, not only roman catholics) are in their job not because they believe in their respective creed but because they know that they have almost unlimited power over their congregations and can abuse it at will. I d...Jump to post
The abuse was so severe in one case that an entire congregation of nuns was dissolved by former Pope Benedict. do we know which one that might have been? ( only found unspecific back references ) The article says the "Community of St. Jean in France". All this confirms my theory that 50 %...Jump to post
World Financial Center is under construction, so the 1984 date might be right. I might be wrong but as far as I know the WTC was not still under construction in 1984. I was in NYC in January 1983, and just before my companions and I left for JFK for our PanAm flight back to London we took a trip to...Jump to post
I'd love to see the video in real time, without that annoying music and an interesting narration.
I really like documentaries, but they don't get better with over-the-top special effects and shitty background music. An interesting topic speaks for itself.

Do more things manually. Don't take the car when you can walk or bike. Use the stairs, not the elevator. Move your body whenever you can. Also, put less food on your plate. Enjoy it, don't just shove it into your mouth. Relax when you eat - it's not a competition. Keeping your weight loss moderately...Jump to post
My story from the other side of the fence: I was a bank apprentice back in the days. In the little town where I was sent to and made responsible for the cash counter we had a supermarket. The owner would throw "money bombs" into the vault every evening. The next morning I had to count the ...Jump to post
Good choice and nice work on the car! Nothing beats the durability of the old Benzers. My (not so old) W203 is still going strong. It was used quite much for my construction site visits lately - I owe him a nice car wash badly. I remember your old thread. 18 months later I can happily attest that my...Jump to post
My longest bike ride was from my home town of Utrecht, the Netherlands to Barcelona, Spain. I liked it, together with a friend of mine. It was around 1.500km. We took everything with us, including a tent. Back in the early 80ies, when we were still in High School, we used to take our bikes to Franc...Jump to post
Justin, how do the fragrances work with your migraine? I always thought that such smells trigger headaches and migraines. I for one don't like fragrances at all.

Maintenance test flight. Next. And to claim this is “over the Pacific” is laughable. More like off the coast of California. Which ocean is off the coast of CA? The Pacific.

Having said that, I'm more with Aeroflot777 in saying that Christmas music in general is more annoying than offensive. But since I don't frequent the places where the music is played and don't listen to the radio in general I am fairly unaffected by this and don't care at all...

For me, every Christmas song except "Fairytales of New York" by the Pogues which I hereby declare the correct Christmas song. And the winner by a high margin for the incorrect Christmas song is of course "Last Christmas". That one should be classified as a WMD. Alas, as I'm not l...Jump to post
“Thinking Fast and Slow” is definitely my new favorite. It changed the way I think, it points at how our brains can make flaws in their logical thinking without us even realizing it.
