Flying a plane is just like riding a bike, it is just a lot harder to put cards in the spokes.

It's an entirely different kind of flying altogether.

"Keeping it up wasn't a problem, it was the landing part I wasn't sure of,"

We're gonna have to come in pretty low on this approach. It's just something you have to do ... when you land.

Nice headline, subby. Next time, read the article. You can be funny and accurate at the same time.

The back-and-forth really loses something when you're typing instead of speaking....but..

The hospital? What is it?

It's easy. You push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. You pull the stick back, the houses get smaller. You keep pulling back, and the houses get bigger again.

It's a big building with patients. But that's not important right now.

I used to bang a Vietnamese chick named Shirley.  Upon arriving in the U.S. one of the first TV shows her expecting parents saw was Laverne and Shirley.  They decided that Shirley sounded like a good American name.  I used to constantly say, "Shirley, you cant be serious" to her.  Great times.  She also had a vice-like pussy, which was even better.

It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

Well, let's see. First the earth cooled.
And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes.
And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it!
