That headline made me come.
2005-07-19 04:11:56 PM  
So not only are the pilots drunk, they're also nuttier than squirrel shiat? Good thing I don't fly.
2005-07-19 04:14:09 PM  
haha, I laughed so hard I peed myself

wait...I peed myself? shiat!

Not as scary as witnessing the pilot for your upcoming flight to Sao Paulo Brazil having a loud wicked tearful fight via cell phone cell with his significant other right before the boarding call.

I am so amused right not.

/FYI that puddle at my feet is not water.
2005-07-19 04:22:02 PM  
Granted you can take out more people as a pilot but who wants to guess these same pilots have valid drivers licenses? Own guns?

2005-07-19 04:22:03 PM  
Now that is a GREAT headline!!

Can't fly a plane when you have bi-polar disorder?!? Hogwash... I wouldn't want to fly with a pilot who was in the middle of a manic episode, but that shouldn't preclude people who have been diagnosed in the past from being pilots.

Unless you want to ban people who have had a history of drug or alcohol abuse, ANY form of depression or suicidal thoughts, sleeping disorders, sexual disorders (why not?), etc etc...
2005-07-19 04:26:04 PM  
Stop harping on my goddamned farking bipolar disorder!!!

Now help me adjust the control rods on the reactor before I start crying again.

What's that cobra thing from?
2005-07-19 04:28:30 PM  
just because someone can fly, doesnt necessarily mean theyre capable of fulltime work.. personally, i can fly, but due to back conditions im generally unable to hold down proper work.
however, the fact that these people were obviously working at the time, is more of a welfare scam-type issue than pilots issue..
/amazed they found 40,000 commercial pilots in one place
//though it was probably all done by computer data-matching
2005-07-19 04:29:35 PM  
Man, I was so hoping that article would be about flying cobras.

/Man, I'm weird....
//Great headline.
2005-07-19 04:29:53 PM  
Thanks for the props.

/mmm... anonymous praise on the internets
//gonna go watch old G.I. Joe episodes

Does anyone have anything even related to a transcript or a video of that SNL sketch where the cobras take over the airplane and then the little cobra gives the diatribe about taking over the world?

/You'll try to put on your hat, but instead you'll put ME on your head! (or something like that)

Thought they wanted us to be cocky, arrogant, aggressive Gods of the sky. Have been wondering why there have been so many piss tests & phys/c evals this month. Maybe it's the altitude sickness making us crazy. Bonzi. Buzzy.

/I'll see your bipolar & raise you a multiple personality.

Even better is the rapid weight loss program where you Ride the Snake... That cracks my wife up every time.

paulxl7: What's that cobra thing from?

Not sure - maybe just good imagery.

But it makes me (and some others, it looks like), think of Homer when he was tethered to Bart at the ruling of Judge Constance Harm. During class, Homer slept on the floor and had night terrors and kept screaming out, "Ah! Cobras!"
2005-07-19 04:34:10 PM  
Does this mean I cant become a Pilot?

//has been receiving 'disability' pay for 3 years

Why is the entire article a link?
2005-07-19 04:39:12 PM  
They also found hundreds of bi-pedal pilots.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who made the G.I. Joe connection.
