Aeronautical Quiz
They say it is common sense but here is a Clue: Just remember that a helicopter's blade (in cross-section) is shaped like an airplane’s wing, and both catch air giving lift..now answer the question.... This should be an easy quiz for those who have even a modicum of knowledge about aircraft. However, the answer may surprise you. The Question:

"What is the primary advantage of rotary-winged aircraftover fixed-winged aircraft?"

Just because you like it or just because I may like it does not make it appropriate, it's crude and completely inappropriate, also shows a great deal about how so many consider nothing but their own these days.
The way many people on this forum throw around vulgarity masking it with $#%^^ etc, mentioning private body parts and immoral innuendos on a public forum is very telling of how they live, talk and think then dump that with out thought or consideration of others on a public forum.

The fact that our moderators inaction seem to show they are on board with this trash makes one wonder if we have the right moderators at all.

I'm too old to be offended by it but not too old to just be tired of it.

No limits on trash as long as you don't talk politics I guess.

Now if that had been 240 lbs of flab and cellulite, it would have been offensive in anything less than a full length overcoat, but as it is, wish I could design a fuselage that looked that good :)

Interesting Bryan, makes me wonder what kind of life you have.
Those calendars were handed out and received by acceptance.
Something for you to think about, not where you're coming from but where you're going that matters Bryan.

Just an average life

I'm just your average red-blooded male. Go to church on Sunday mornings but don't over-do the religion thing. I have a conscience but a libido too...:)

Is that what they mean by HOT re-fuelling??


Actually, the demure damsel originally was in possession of a pair of knickers,
admittedly tiny ones. Photoshop took care of that problem.

Get a life before you die.

Being perturbed by nudity or vulgar bleeped out words on the internet is akin to voting twice for Obama and then being distressed by his handling of foreign affairs like Syria.

Blue, are you aware the computer automatically changes words like **** and **** to asterisks? So in actuality without that filter, these peoples messages would be EVEN MORE HORRIBLE!!!
Oh the humanity..........

Ben, generally you post are good ones but the first paragraph here is escaping my logic.
Anyway...........
You can be sure I'm not losing a moments sleep over this so knock yourselves out of posting what ever it is you want, it's your life.

Notice how today that anyone with a decent approach to communicating on a public forum is now in the minority and Bryan even claims we are from a different planet :D
What was perverted is now accepted, what was wrong is now right, hang on to your hats guys some of you are a part of making a great new world for your kids.

I object, you calling our children, kids. I didn't raise no billy goats. I was raised with a sense of humor and so were my children.

Blue, I worked for years with the greatest man I've ever known. He is 73 years old. He says that life is like a cattle chute (he was a cowboy). His generation was born out on the praire open and free, except around the edges where there was barbed wire. But each successive generation is born closer and closer to the stock pens. He says my generation was born right out side the pens, but that both my boys were born in the chute. As that is all they have ever known they don't know what they are missing.
This of course was a conversation on politics and freedom, but it applies here as well. You had bemoaned a way of life that has faded away since I was born, and as for my sons, well it just simply doesn't exist for them at all.
How unacceptable do you suppose your behavior in life would have been to some one 200 years ago?
Its a matter of perspective, thats all. Heck, The bible has all kinds of lacivious passages and its WAY older than that!
