He should have grabbed a couple of beers off of the drink cart, popped the slide, and said "Aloha suckers!"

He also should have retired in Hawaii, not Colorado FFS.

I thought flight crew had increased radiation exposure due to their long periods of time at high altitude. Guess it didn't affect this guy.

liked the article.

You know how a lot of occupations get "ess", "ette", and "enne" added on the end when it's done by a woman?
Steward -> Stewardess
Actor -> Actress
Comedian -> Comedienne
I think we should do the same for guys who go into female dominated industries. Nursess, Nannienne, Secretariette.

Anyway, great job stewardessess.

Working only 8 days a months can lengthen anyone's careers.

You know the old adage, show me a hot chick and I'll show you someone who is sick of their shiat?

Same deal applies to people who live in Hawaii or other beautiful parts of the world - they want to see OTHER parts of the world.

CSB: I dated a girl from Arizona and she stayed a week with me in New Jersey. I can't begin to tell you how much she loved seeing lawns full of grass, the beach, etc. She kept telling me how green it was.

He was able to get away from the broad for long periods of time regularly. Plus all the broads in all the airports. You know he's had more strange than all of us put together.

That was my thought. His story is great regardless, but I hope this guy got laid in all fifty states and a dozen foreign countries.

america is full of people that are clueless as to how many beautiful places abound in NJ. there are very few states that are as wonderfully diversified as The Garden State. and still fewer states contributed so much to the birth and growth of this incredible country. sadly a lot of people choose to be ignorant haters that parrot cheezy stand-up comedians. here on Fark i've seen people who have never been to NJ toss hate this way. fark them. fark them right up the a.

One will never know. For all we know, the regular radiation exposures killed any cancers he developed. ;)

Isn't it funny that one of the top 2 treatment methods for cancer is radiation?

He might have the world record for longest serving steward, but those ancient United stewardesses have him beat by a few decades.

I agree. The most beautiful sight I've ever seen was a stream in a park in mid-Jersey on July 4th evening. The air was dense with fireflies. It was incredible.

There's some really nice places in NJ, stay the fark there and stop coming to PA.

Qft. I lived on the Florida panhandle for years and everyone up here in Chicago asks me what I was thinking moving up here.
