I'm popping enough popcorn to make BoboBaby's entire fleet overweight.

I just posted this:

I, there, wrote:...and who has said enough stupid things over the years displaying some big holes in their aviation knowledge over the years that I'm not really sure they actually fly an airplane...


...and I am haunted by the ole "pot-calling-the-kettle-black" and "three fingers pointing back" rules...

In defense, after years of MSFS and thinking about this stuff, and even screw ups in real 172s with procedures and airmanship...I realize that it's probably good that I am NOT a commercial pilot nor active with the PPL business.

...love aviation, but have a good dose of absent-mindedness

Anyway, I ask the membership of AD.info for forgiveness for my many instances of displaying big holes in my aviation knowledge.

I pledge that I will not assault, threaten, interfere, intimidate, or refuse safety orders of you or Not_Mom.

However, I hope that you will not zip-tie me and haul me away from my computer if I ask when the popcorn will be ready.

Will it bother you if I were to video my question with my cell phone?

Where can I review the contract of popcorn conveyance...the back of a napkin?

No, but just be aware there's a $1.00/kernel fee for butter.

One very important and helpful trait of a good Captain is discretion. There are things you just don't say in a public forum, regardless of what legal backing (or lack thereof) you have. I suppose, if one is within weeks of retirement, perhaps that's not as much of an issue, but I'd like to think one's standards of behavior remain steady no matter the time remaining.

Something that's discussed extensively in Upgrade training is that a Captain should act in such a way as to COMmand authority rather than DEmand it. The point being that authority should come from your conduct, not your words. To that end, what comes out of your mouth can make or break you, and it's not even WHAT comes out but HOW it comes out that's often critical.

Our friend BB seems a little slow on the uptake in general. Whether that's senility or not is a touch above my paygrade.

My analysis is that Not_Mom is the Captain of corn popping and that:

1. You are now, forever, stuck at the First Officer level.

OR

2. You are weeks from corn-popping retirement- even though we are still disturbed by the inconsistency of said comments.

Disturbingness aside, the humour and ironing are always appreciated.

Flyboy's COMmand of fact, aviation and ironing is appreciated too.

Ironingly, in the background, I believe we see a Captain using discretion and COMmand authority.

It is not clear if it is a :D Boeing :D or Air Bus

It would seem he even visited with the passenger who made a direct threat to a crewmember, and that no zip-ties were involved.

Sad, that the media does not see fit to mention his ISGConflictManagementOTM

...and I just can't help but keyboard-quarterback and ask if the FA deviated from procedure and should have said, "sir, please stay out of this" instead of charging forward in an aggressive manner.

I'm actually corn-popping retired, as my gas provider has suspended service to the building I live in because such small technicalities and non-issues as leaks and old, dangerous installations not meeting current safety standards, procedures and regulations.
So, I was lying about the corn-popping. But still have a beautiful girlfriend, a red Audi and drive a cargo 747 for a living.
