E-Ticket Ride

This sort of activity is one of my very favorite things to do – nervous in the service – not one bit.

 

You must grasp that this is how these people think.

 

It’s a matter of numbers

The number of hunting licenses sold in the United States last year was greater than every soldier in the ten largest armies on Earth, combined.

Politicians considering firearms confiscation and mandatory buybacks should consider that.

“Bill Gates is the narcissistic poster child of technocracy, devoid of common sense and having no capacity for compassion for fellow humans. Regarding ‘Net-Zero’ CO2 goals, he says ‘we need a plan to speed the process up and millions of homes going dark and cold this winter will serve that purpose.'” ⁃ TN Editor

  1. I read that too…from Wirecutter at Knuckledragginmylifeaway. She’s also a carpet muncher…not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  2. You can sit on the ramp. I’ll be at my console….

    Great grenade cover.

    My favorite Japanese SciFi movie is “The Mysterians”. Quite innovative for it’s time.

    • I’d sit on that ramp but only to push off recalcitrant jumpers. Rappelling from a Huey in the middle of a German winter night was more than enough adrenaline rush for me.

  3. Nice thing about an airplane big enough to need 2-3 flight engineers (C-5 Galaxy) is having the opportunity to stand or sit on the back ramp when supporting airdrops. Never wanted to jump (with or without a parachute) but hats off to those brave souls. HALO and heavy cargo were the most fun to watch.

    • You need to be able to sit there to provide suppressive fire on takeoff!

      …or at least that would be my argument if I had ever been in a position to do it, and had the balls for it (not).

      -Kle.
