I posted this in Non-Av, but I think you all would like to see it (even though I bet most of you have!)
Why airplanes are easier to live with than women:
Airplanes usually kill you quickly; a woman takes her time.
Airplanes can be turned on by a flick of a switch.
Airplanes don't get mad if you do a touch and go.
Airplanes don't object to a pre-flight inspection.
Airplanes come with a manual to explain their operation.
Airplanes have strict weight and balance limitations.
Airplanes can be flown at any time of the month.
Airplanes don't come with in-laws.
Airplanes don't care about how many other airplanes you've flown before.
Airplanes and pilots both arrive at the same time.
Airplanes don't mind if you look at other airplanes.
Airplanes don't mind if you buy airplane magazines.
Airplanes expect to be tied down.
Airplanes don't comment on your piloting skills.
Airplanes don't whine unless something is really wrong.
However, when airplanes go quiet, just like women, it's usually not good.

That's disgraceful! I can't possibly agree with your opinion and I think you owe an apology to all of womankind. After all:
Big and beautiful is as sexy as small and fast... and I love the 747 and the Super Lynx...
I only look at other aeroplanes because I don't want to bump into them.
When my aeroplane goes down suddenly, it's usually a bad sign.
Sitting on the fence is usually the safest option when my aeroplane is feeling temperamental.
By the way, I'm a dead man when my girlfriend reads this. So long, and be good. If you can't be good, be careful. If you can't be careful, use tissues....

Oh, you really want trouble, show these to my g/f. Oh, wait, don't have one right now. Free man!
You can get 3 of your friend's into your airplane's cockpit.
Your airplane doesn't mind if your friend borrows her for a weekend (and neither do you!)
You can get in your friend's airplane's cockpit.
Your airplane doesn't make you put on a raincoat when you enter her cockpit (OK, that one is REALLY bad)
