I like that there's a guy NOT clinging to the fence and another lets go to catch a piece of clothing. Suicidal cowboys! :roll:

In the interest of juxtaposition and truth:

I like that there's a not_guy, with not_comprehensive swimwear, who IS clinging to the fence.

In the interest of outdated and politically not_correct gender stereotypes:

There are some who would claim that clinginess ................is one of the defining characteristics of not_guys.

At the risk of being called a livery-wanking fenceperv and be sent to that other forum, I proudly admit that, if I ever visit SXM, female anatomy would Not_be my top interest.

Your statement is a tad black and white...

I would think that one might call on basic fundamentals to address said issues, given that there are some fairly strict aviation rules governing aircraft spacing for operations at airports.

This means that it's rather unlikely you'll spend every moment as a lunatic moron clinging to the fence, nor every moment evaluating if the "Threshold Crossing Height" is within scientifically-developed ranges (while enjoying the closeness of the landing gear of a landing aircraft).

There will be gaps in airport operations to support secondary interests to the point that neither has to be neglected.

Or, are you commenting regarding top_interests versus bottom_interests?

I didn't say it would be of no interest, I said it would Not_be my TOP interest :mrgreen: . SPOPs (Standard Plane Observation Procedures) do allow for distractions while there is no aeroplanie action.
