    Such priorities. From Wiki: In 1981, an AirCal Boeing 737-200 crashed while attempting to land at John Wayne International Airport around sunset on Tuesday, February 17.[11][12] AirCal Flight 336 was a scheduled flight from San Jose International Airport to John Wayne International Airport. Around 48 minutes into the flight, the crew received clearance for a visual approach to land on runway 19R. As Flight 336 was approaching, another AirCal flight, Flight 931, received clearance to take off from runway 19R. The controller recognized the potential danger of a collision between the two aircraft and ordered Flight 931 to abort takeoff and instructed Flight 336 to go around. Flight 931 aborted its takeoff, however, Flight 336 did not go around and instead landed on the runway with the landing gear retracted. The aircraft left the runway surface around 900 feet (275 m) past the runway threshold, skidded another 1,170 feet (360 m) before finally coming to rest 115 feet (35 m) to the right of the centerline. All passengers and crew members survived the crash. The Boeing 737-293 aircraft, registered N468AC, was damaged beyond repair and consequently written off.[13]

    With my old Delta 14, swapping out the upper and lower guides for Carters worked wonders.

    Comparing comedians from different eras is like sports. Jack v Tiger, Ruth v Aaron, etc. Just enjoy the show. :-)

    I think most of our societal ills will persist indefinitely simply because humans are far from perfect. And I see no reason to expect we will improve as a group. More likely we will import our ills to new worlds rather that finding solutions to our problems there. But it's what we have to work with.

    If you jump off the edge of a flat earth, just for grins imagine it's an inverted conic shape like something from an old Yes album cover, where do you fall? You'd die from old age before you would likely hit anything. And could you survive the impact given weightlessness the deceleration G forces might be minimal? Or do you just go into orbit? Surely a conspiracy by NASA and space contractors to get big budgets - when if we just launched from the edge orbital flight would be automatic.

    Fishing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel a few years ago. RIBs and helos paying attention to all us fishing guys while some sub goes by. Looks small but throws a huge wake.

    Grades and sampling theory

    Answers with absolutes, e.g. always, never, etc. are usually wrong (at least in medicine) unless it's blatantly obvious, e.g. you are trapped in a dark area of the boat and the smell of gasoline fills the air. To get more light you should a) open a door; b) turn on your sealed LED flashlight, or c) strike your lighter. Counseling about behavior change is always a yes, but may be one of several correct options. Most questions give 4 options a-d and the choices are something like 1) a and c are correct; 2) a, b, and c are correct; 3) b and d are correct; and 4) only d is correct. So you could know 75% of a topic and get scored zero on the question. It's actually a challenge to write good questions and to develop a psychometrically strong examination.
