For Klaud (I know how he loves airplanes):

S: Live bugs on backorder.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200-fpm descent.

S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.

That sounds like a quiz they do every morning on a dutch radio show. They go to some kind of event where a lot of celeberties come, and they ask what they think about someone or something. But either that someone or something doesn't exsist or is loooong dead ^^

This one actually piques my interest. Either something is wrong with the altimeter, the computer or the aerodynamics of that plane.

Or the pilot set the auto-pilot to the wrong height and didn't realize it.

Are we sure it wasn't the GROUND doing a 200-fpm ASCENT???? Hmmm.

Well, if their ADI is neutral, the plane should stay at the same altitude.

after raid tonight, a couple guildies and i were doing our nightly BGs
in our last one, a eye of the storm match, i was on d at the draenei ruins, and had a bunch of alliance that kept running up and just going nuts...and dying. you could tell they really wanted me dead but between being blood and being in full pvp gear...they were just getting slaughtered

i said in vent my god they are just throwing themselves at me!

to which our druid healer (who is a phychologist who works with sex addicts) replys
"you have GROUPIES!"
"filthy alliance panties everywhere!"

thanks to her comment, i will never look at base defense the same way again

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.

Old cars are great! Most of the time...

Great way to compare how far we've developed car safety!

I look at that, with the single airbag, and think to myself, "thank the goddess I have 9 airbags!"

Not entirely accurate, seeing as they removed the engine block from the old chevy, if I remember right.

Ohh, why would they do that though? Seems like a waste of a perfectly interesting test... :|
Unless if it wasn't actually a test, but rather some form of a sales pitch, I guess.

And nevermind, just looked it up and apparently it had the engine block intact, though it certainly looks like there's nothing there.
