SolomonKing: [cdn.nahright.com image 500x332]Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for flying Lion Air. We have reached our cruising altitude of 33 thousand feet... 33 THOUSAND FEET? Oh shiat, man! We f*ckin' higher than Redman at the Source Awards! Daaamn, is that a cow?
ArcadianRefugee: Goes to show you how dumb cars are."Hey, what's that sound? It's getting louder.... Oh! There it is, I see it now; it's coming right at me. Huh. And pretty quickly, too. It's really loud, now. I wonder what-".

Cagey B: Years it took me. "You can't train a pride of lions to fly a plane," they said. "What a colossal waste of federal funds." "Get off my property or I'll mace you." Etc.With advances in avionics and a better understanding of lower mammalian psychology, though, I was ready. Adapting instincts that are normally used to maintain a loosely-organized pride structure was surprisingly well-suited to the basic functions of a flight crew. Instrumentation that translated input commands into easily-understood prompts associated with simple images and food cues. Visual acuity that supplemented ever-sophisticated autopilot functionality to create flight capability superior to even a human pilot team.My lion airplane was a radical development in the untapped potential of violent, wild animals to perform resource-intensive human tasks. And for a shining, glorious three hours and fifteen minutes at 30,000 feet altitude, my dream was a reality. And then the second they spot a goddamn cow on the ground they all just rush at it and ram the plane directly into it. God damn it.I hope my gorilla hospital goes better.
