How do [i]we[/i] feel about the new green plan for USA...

Postby 3WE » Thu Feb 14, 2019 6:52 pm

I know this is politically dangerous, but...

-I find it rather extreme.

-I laugh that Evanie seems to like it.

-I know I may be bit red for the enlightened group here, but I would like to point out that this plan calls for large scale elimination of aeroplanies.

If all those boxes were full of squids, I think we'd be done here.

IMHO not Evanie (surprisingly) but Black Ram.

I'm actually quite bummed by this (note lack of blue font)... BB never was the best at giving people warm fuzzies, but he did offer a lot of useful input and a unique (for the forum) perspective. :(

All of these fora are interesting- Bobby contributed some common sense, and let Gabieeeee play 747 pilot.

He also contributed some most interesting things, including mild debate with many folks, including Dummy, Gabiee, 3Weeee and ATL crewie thinking that anti-skid/anti-lock braking systems weren't advantageous at really high speeds where wings might be producing lift in an RTO situation and more.

I strongly suspect he will be back- he gets grumpy with this person or that, goes quiet and then returns maybe 6 or 8 weeks later as (like many of us), this stuff is an interesting distraction and why deny yourself the joy of pontificating and watching others do the same. I think this is at least the third time.

This MCAS stuff is a hell of a subject...from the outside looking in, my thoughts jump back and fort from how in the hell could Boing have designed it this way to how in the hell do you not keep trimming nose up and then pull the breaker (sorry Evan...flip the cutoff switch in accordance with the correct procedure)…Like so many things- nothing is black and white- the gray area makes it interesting.

An alternative view to this is that the flame wars of old are so rare any more...Man, did ITS and Flyboy piss me off in the good ole days...and I was only a small part of the flame wars and bannings and candelight vigils...

Maybe we can start a vigil thread in OT, there.
