Print Story Ah-hmmmmmm
By BadDoggie (Mon Sep 10, 2012 at 05:36:12 PM EST) I ate'nt dead yet, centipedinal bajingoes, stuff, things, items (all tags)
Where do I start? Where does it end? Do I share an awesome tweaked recipe for brisket? Do I go into detail about my stupidity? Do I carry on with more pride than 10 people deserve like every other idiot who ever managed to procreate?

Life is for the living. I'm still alive.

I really wish I had something insightful to say. I've had quite a few stories in mind but, well, never got them out because they required effort and then there was another conf call and another three XL sheets and and and. Jeezus FUCK how did it get this way?!

It was almost a decade ago I was whinging about this place being the hang-out of near-40yo pilots. Now? Fuck, we're closer to 50 and me, as desperate as I am to left seat, I won't because of physical limitations. Thanks to MG I can't count on being able to see correctly, and if you think you've had a scary flight landing, you ain't ever tried to put an aircraft down while squinting on one eye.

Woe is me.

TIammo is right, the world is full of shitballs.
R343achel is right, there is some good.
Technician is right, there is interesting stuff to be sorted.
Gedvondur is right, it's a big sucking hole of suck sometimes.
TPD is right, no one is willing to pay a single quid for 100 hours' of entertainment.
Hulver is right, WTF are you all on about?
My wife is right, what the hell am I going to do?

Athiest me can only quote Rabbi Hillel:

If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
And if I am only for myself, what am I?
And if not now, when?

That pretty much sums it up. I have some excellent recipes, from yummy vegan pumpkin to the pulled pork I taught my Scouser father-in-law to make. I know how Linux could succeed on the desktop. I'm pretty sure I know what Oracle will do next. And Microsoft. And Apple can DIAF. Work is good, the Puppy is well, I'm climbing back out of the shithole I created, and oddly enough I hope things are going well for you lot, too.

So how the fuck are you and what can I say to alleviate any fears?

And just so we're not misunderstanding each other, I think you all smell like poo. §§§.

Is effort the whole story on stories, or are you becoming more tolerant with root cause 17?

Well, I just wrapped up my PP-ASEL by riceowlguy (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Sep 11, 2012 at 01:49:19 PM EST
so that should help pull the average age of the HuSi Air Force pilot pool down a bit.

It's probably better than the alternative.
It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?
40 year old pilots by FlightTest (2.00 / 0) #6 Tue Sep 11, 2012 at 03:00:35 PM EST
Still closer to 40 than 50 for a couple more years.

I haven't flown in well over a year.  Sold teh Apache last weekend to my long-time mechanic.  Just can't afford it anymore, don't want to jump through the FAA hoops, can't fly often enough to feel safe at it.

I've firmly joined the clan of Men In Lycra Shorts.  It is what it is.

Nice to hear from you BD by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #7 Tue Sep 11, 2012 at 03:49:02 PM EST
Hope all is going well in your world.
