Lions like cows.

I did not expect to read that it was a 737.

Yikes.

Indonesian airlines are destroying the safety record of 737s single handed.  It seems they put one off a runway almost every week.

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?

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.

The plan proceeded to skid off the runway

I hate it when a plan skids off the runway.

If they can run an airplane off of Lithium Ion batteries why don't we have electric cars yet?

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-".

Don't mind me; I've made some pretty weird errors when posting lately. Extraneous words, stray punctuation, egregious spelling errors....
