THE SPHINX—-THE BIZARRE WORLD OF FLIGHT

The Editor:  Is this about North Carolina, The First in Flight, LL ?

Remove Key Before Flight Cat:  No, it isn’t.  I wish it was that simple. The” remove key ” is from Amigo’s lawn mower.  I’m not sure that man was made to fly.  At first it was about conquering gravity, and freeing their souls to be free.  To reach the unreachable galaxy, to go where no man has gone before.  Here are some examples of why man is destined to die on a poisoned, toxic, caustic  Earth.

TE:  That is a sad indictment of thousands of years of progress, RKBFC, is there no hope ?

No Hope Cat:   If you want hope go see Hill-manatee, she still thinks American citizens will elect her in 2060.  Here are some reasons that man’s destiny and flight don’t make sense.  First of all Boeing  can’t even keep Air Force One flying safely.  They hire the fired Secret Service alcoholics and whore-hoppers to maintain AF!.

The second reason is that United Airlines is in  ” free-fall “.   If the drug addicts they hire don’t beat you to death for refusing to give up your seat to a drunk pilot, the password to get into the cockpit is given to every passenger who orders a drink of vodka.

TE:   Those sure are reasons to reconsider flying, are there any parting words for our reluctant flyers, NHC ?

Ride The Pony Cat:   Here is a great idea to relieve tension, anxiety, frustration, paranoia, distrust, and any other personal problem than Heroin won’t temper.   Have miniature ponies at the airport to comfort passengers.   The airlines can’t keep scorpions, snakes, rats,  and bats off the planes.  How are they going to keep Pony-Sierra, Hotel, India, Tango, off the plane.   More passengers slip and fall now that at a Supreme Court Hearing.

Lightning Storm Moves Across the USA

Explanation: Watch a huge lightning storm move across the eastern USA. The huge storm caused much damage and unfortunately some loss of life for people in its path. Seen from space, the lightning is seen as momentary flashes in the featured time-lapse video recorded last month by the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) aboard the GOES-16 satellite. The outline of North America is most evident during the day, while the bright lightning strikes are most evident at night. Inspection of the video shows that much of the lightning occurred at the leading edge of the huge tail of the swirling storm. Because lightning frequently precedes a storm’s most violent impact, lightning data from GLM holds promise to help reduce the harm to humans from future storms.
