Countdown To Mendis: 3 Days And Counting

Wed Jul 12, 2006 1:36 am

OK....so here we are....362 days into the banning of one of our most respected members and he's probably got a lot to say when he gets back, since he's been busy.

But first, let's have some fun at his expense.

I'd like to hear your predictions about his first post back. Tell us what you think he's going to say. Keep it short or long, but funny and lighthearted.

Is he going to refer to himself in the third person? Will he start a lecture series about his year's stay on A.Net Devils Island? Is he going to make a splash or come back lamblike? Have the scars from the gendermodification surgery healed yet?

That kind of stuff.

Well, I think it's a secret and we're not supposed to tell......but I'll go ahead and spill the beans....

he was banned for numerous and repeated illegal acts of animal husbandry without a license or permission from the chattel owners. also without prophylactics or lubricant.....his excuse that they had merely caught their heads in the barbed wire fence and he was 'helping' them through did not really wash after the third or fourth time that second night....

it was quite unpleasant sounding for the animals.....  duck   Wink

203 days, if he decides to stick around. It is unfortunate, really.

Anyway, it is great to see Sean on his way back. He has that high RR for a reason, and it doesn't just have to do with knowledge, but also because he is truly a good guy.

Personally, I find MrNiji more friendly and is an all-around good guy that I deeply respect. Mendis is certainly knowledgeable about AI and Indian aviation in general, but he has a certain arrogance about him and can be mean at times. "Cross" him by speaking ill of his raison de'tre, Air India, and he can be vicious.

Well, in that case I can get him revving right now. Air India should be avoided at all costs because they serve Indian food to hundreds of people at the time and we all know how some of the more spicy curry dishes can impact peoples GI systems and trigger their flatulence valves! That much gas on one flight must come close to overloading the fresh air system on the flight and probably increases the risk of fire on board...it's probably like DL that time they tried burrito dinners.....talk about explosive decompression!  duck   sarcastic
