Re: The New Joke Thread

Irish Mirror (i.e. humour at the expense of the Irish...)
After living in the remote countryside of Ireland all his life, an old
Irishman decided it was time to visit Dublin ...
In one of the stores, he picks up a mirror and looks into it.
Not ever having seen a mirror before, he remarked at the image
Staring back at him.
'How 'bout that! He exclaims, 'Here's a picture of my Fadder.'
He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his dad, but on the
Way home he remembered his wife didn't like his father, so he hung it in
The shed, and every morning before leaving to go fishing, he would go
There and look at it.
His wife began to get suspicious of his many trips to the shed.
So, one day after her husband left, she went to the shed and found the
Mirror.
As she looked into the glass, she fumed, 'So that's the ugly bitch
he's running around with.'

Re: The New Joke Thread

What deep thinkers men are...

Finally I pondered an age old question:
Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?
Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful thana guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they "know"?
Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question.
Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really "know", here is the reason for my conclusion.
A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say,"It might be nice to have another child."
On the other hand, you never hear a guy say,"You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts."

I rest my case.
Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap in that hammock.

Scaredycat, you are truly the Enlightened One. I would have never have considered that angle.

Re: The New Joke Thread

>> Manure... An interesting fact

Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common.

>> It was shipped dry, because in dry form it

>>
>> Methane began to build up below decks and the first

>>
>> Several ships were destroyed in this manner before

#MeanwhileInTheCockpit...

This past spring, ground control at Washington Dulles had aircraft backed in a line 15 to 20 aircraft long for departure. When asked by a commuter pilot for the reason for the delay, the controller stated in a stern tone on ground frequency “We got into a P***ing contest with Potomac approach and approach won. Everybody expect indefinite delays”. After this transmission, there were no more questions asked.

#MeanwhileInTheCockpit...

SR-71 stories are always impressive, if nothing else. Following is a good one I heard from an Air Force crew chief who had worked on them, as told from the pilot's vantage point.

Most people think that no matter how fast you go, you always want to go faster; but that's only true to a point. More than once, I've looked out ahead of the sled and seen a speck way off in the distance that quickly transformed into a blurred image of a weather balloon zooming down our right side. Thankfully, we weren't flying a half degree more to our right. In any case, we do go fast.

I remember listening to radio traffic on LA Center's frequency when a light single innocently asked Center for his ground track. After a momentary pause, Center replied, "November 1234A, showing you at... an impressive 138 across the ground."

Well, guys being guys, it wasn't but a second before a twin called up and asked for his speed. "November 5678B, showing you at 195."

Not to be outdone, a Navy jet called up and asked for his. "Vixen 34, showing you at 394."

It was then that I heard the all-too-familiar click of the VHF trigger in the back seat. "Center, Aspen 20, ground track, please." There was a long pause before the reply, "Aspen,... one thousand, seven hundred thirty eight."

The moments following that transmission were the quietest I can ever remember on LA's frequency.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I used to do test flights out of Ft Hood Tx., as it required me to climb to an altitude to where you could limit the engine, meaning engine power was less than the transmission limit and both pilots were "inside of the cockpit" watching instruments and recording notes I'd flight follow with Houston Center, so we didn't hit any other traffic.

Positive control area is 18,000 to 60,000 ft, where you must be in contact with Center at all times, but it does have the ceiling of 60,000 ft, established long ago, as well nothing can fly that high.

One day I heard a transmission to Houston Center of Valkyrie or some other call sign requesting FL 540 or so, which is awfully high. Centers response was a laughing, "Buddy if you can up get there, it's all yours"

Valkyrie came back with "Roger, out of 680 for 540" or similar.

I figured it had to be either a NASA SR-71 or a U-2.


Went to a talk given by the guy who wrote the book sled driver.
One of his comments was, you have never been lost until you have been lost at Mach 3.
I guess by the time you figure out where you are, your're not there anymore

Dad, did you know ... in other countries you don't know who your wife is until you get married.

It's like that everywhere, son.

At those speeds, it's probably faster just to go around the world again than to try to make a u-turn. LOL
