I see the body of a baby Jesus. They should put this on Ebay.

I see a dolphin! No wait, it's a shark! Ummm... errr... no, I've decided that it's Alfred Hitchcock. Is that why they painted "Danger" on the plane?

My daughter is a pilot for Delta Connections. She flies an Embraer ERJ 145--the "Brazillian Princess". Her plane was struck by lightening once, in flight, leaving a small ding in the airplane. No great damage, but rather stressful! I'm relieved that this happened on the ground with no injuries to people.

Interesting. I've never in my life heard of a female commercial pilot (if for no other reason than a large number of commercial pilots are ex-military.) When did she decide on that as a career path?

There's a lot of female pilots in the military. There are 23 on the Blue Angels team, and Maj. Nicole Malachowski holds a position on the USAF Thunderbirds team. Remember the IOtD of the all female C-17 or C130 crew in Iraq? It would only be natural for these women to move to commercial aviation.

dammit....what the hell was that!? it had like....sad eyes, and it's mouth was open in an O shape.....

that's from the Simpson's episode where Scully and Mulder go to Springfield to see the glowing green "alien" which turns out to be Mr. Burns after his death-cheating treatments every week.

if you go to the Wikipedia page of The Springfield Files (episode name) you'll scroll down and see a pic of the glowing green Mr. Burns...I don't know how to put it up here. Just look and see if it's the one.
