Hey guys, what's up? I am about 1 mile soutwest of the North Pole right now. Aboard the Russian Icebreaker MV Vladimir. I am on an expedition to the north pole, and when I get there, we have a brought a submersible with us (Alvin II) and me and a buddy are attempting to break a world record by takin...Jump to post
My mom was saying something once about "back in the day when I worked the corner of 5th and Main." Is THAT what she was talking about?
"Citation 123, listen, if you quit calling me center, I'll quit calling you twin cessna!" "Don't anybody maintain anything!" "If you want more room captain, push your seat back." "Sure, you can have 8 miles behind the heavy, but there'll be a United trijet between you and him!" -"Approach, United 52...Jump to post
Guys, you can't use this picture to judge the whole area. I must admit, that whole northern area of Israel (the Galilee and Golan, around Sefat, Kyriat Shmona, and Metullah) are beautiful, especially considering in the big scheme of things, they are in a "desertish" part of the world. When gazing ac...Jump to post
<i>National_757 - you seem to think that any of the mods can ban anyone at will. They can't - it has to be an agreed action between <b>all</b> the mods. If people are getting banned (or not) it is because <b>all</b> the mods have reached a concensus on it. </i> ROFLMAO! SAS23, that is SO not true. T...Jump to post
HkgSpotter1. Great post. I'm sure that's really true.
Glad to see a great, constructive and contributing post like that Mr. Hkg.
AirlineLover, Good to hear you like it! Unfortunately, one of the mods here has a theory that he has to understand the topic of every thread.....or something along those lines. I didn't realize that every topic was meant for everyone. It would've been a great thread, too bad we have a party pooper o...Jump to post
You know what, I heard something about Austrian Airlines starting service from Vienna-SFO. Apparently the inaugural flight was on August 23, and a certain A.net user flew over for a little "vacation" so she might've been busy with him. I bet he had a lot of steam to "blow" off.
Just out of curiosity, Hepkat, why do you have to put "forum moderator" under your username when you sign your post? Is it a subtle way of hinting at us to behave or something? The other mods don't do that when they sign. I though here on A.net, "all men are created equal". Don't rub in your power s...Jump to post
What EGGD is the <b>EXACT SAME REASON</b> that I got banned. The topic of my thread was something that HEPKAT didn't understand, but plenty of other people did. SO, is he the only user on a.net? Nope. Not every thread is intended for everyone. I had this EXACT same thing happen to me, it was a threa...Jump to post
Did anyone notice yet, nobody's favorite user (well, maybe McRingRings...) Matt D, is back. I wonder if he went through Arse-anal withdrawal while he was Matt D-leted. Hmmmmm.
Matt D! You're bacK? That's too bad. Your post didn't make much sense. Not all speeding tickets require you to make court appearances, you *CAN* just pay them. Just think how much it cost to drive 100miles down to the place where it happened, buy a radar gun, do all the reinactments, and take time o...Jump to post
Guys, Airlinelover is a good guy. He is a good, honest, unbiased moderator. He is always up front with you, tells you the truth, and doesn't beat around the bush.

KaiTakFan, Well said. VERY well said. Unfortunately, a lot of my friends are from "upper class" northern families. (Midwest, to be specific). There isn't too much diversity up in those states, so they have been brought up, learning from their parents that it is ago to joke about blacks, arabs, other...Jump to post
Heavymetal well said, and I see your point. As I said before, I agree and feel it is alright to "profile" arab and middle eastern men, and I don't mind that, because in history, and currently, is has been shown, these are the men that are probably trying to commit terrorist attacks against our natio...Jump to post
Water landings are just a comforting word they say on airplanes to passengers that mean "crash". A water landing is a crash. A 747 going 150mph+ is going to break up if it hits choppy water.
CNN says that they haven't confirmed any explosives? And the only suspicious package, they had to blow up and it turned out to be medical equipment. Guys, there is a difference between racial profiling, because of likely suspicions, and stereotypes. I don't mind our country taking extra careful, lik...Jump to post
Racko, Don't worry, Hepkat does this all the time. He did it with me with a thread I was trying to start about Austin Powers III, goldmember. Apparently, he hadn't seen the movie (or heard of it) so he didn't understand the title, so HE, deleted it. And he banned me for a week for doing it. Great wo...Jump to post
Sunday night, I was on a delta Md80 from ATL-DAB. We were taxiing out from the gate in Atlanta, had just pushed back and a couple minutes later, had to go back to the gate. Two big (strong) guys walked on, and grabbed this guy out of his seat and escorted him off the plane. The flight attendant, sit...Jump to post
Ok, how many of you that just posted have had appendicitis, and needed an appendectomy? Any? I have. It is a very interesting pain, and HARD to pinpoint. I woke up at 3am with a sharp pain in my stomache, and figured it was indigestion, and tried to sleep it off. Couldn't sleep much that night. I wo...Jump to post
He made a weak comment that wasn't necessarily "appropriate" and since the username "SAS23" didn't appear on his post, Hepkat had to ban him. Makes sense, right? <img src="/discussions/graphics/yeahsure.gif" ALT="Yeah sure"> Don't worry, we're all still in the dark on this one, seems like Hepk...Jump to post

Thank you Alpha, but in this case no credit is due. I have always been professional in my comments, except for maybe 2 deletes I made when I first became a moderator.
ROFLMAO! Funny Hepkat.
