That actually works?  I'm gonna have a kid and name him Bill Gates.

As far as lesbians go, she's one of the better looking ones I've seen.

That's great but I still missed my connecting flight to the Alaskan Territories,  not to mention how bad I have to pee.
There is no bathroom on her stupid plane!
 
2014-07-12 02:08:26 AM  
What's next for Amelia?  Is she going back to being "Miss Chesty" on channel 9 news?

I'd play Around the World with her.

I can't believe they let a blind woman fly a plane.

Yes but did she ever finish her diary?

I kinda like the ending were she got eaten by huge crabs better, but tomatoes.

Damn..I made a reference..and then you-tubed.

And fark it. Joni Mitchel: Amelia

Such wonderful guitar work. Jaco Pastouris on Bass...and playing it "HIGH" in the end.
And if I'm not mistaken Wayne Shorter on horns...so subtle tho.

Oooooh thanks. I'm sure my hubby sends his thanks too.

No mention of her co-pilot. Not much sign of him on her website either. I kind of wanted to hear him talk about what it was like flying 24,000 miles with a Friend Zone boner.

Seriously though, there's almost no mention of him. What's up with that? Fred Noonan is pretty well known without detracting from the (original) Earhart legend, so why leave this guy in the shadows of the re-creation?

Friend Zone boner.

Zzzzzoner.

Ok. Bedtime.
 
2014-07-12 03:23:38 AM  
That's the good news. The bad news, it was a set of Amelia Earhart luggage that was supposed to be on a flight from Sheboygan to Poughkeepsie.
 
2014-07-12 03:46:47 AM  
Amazing what a blind woman can accomplish when she comes out of the attic.
 
2014-07-12 03:56:44 AM  
C'mon man!  This has been done over and over.  Now if someone takes a plane and flies around the world with it running solely on farts, I might actually be impressed.

He used to wear those pants that look like elephant ears are attached to the legs, as did many of the more fashionable aviators of the time.

Because he obviously flew the plane and she just sat there looking pretty.

The medias take on it, not mine.

Ummm. A yuppie named Piper who had a lesbian affair with Alex (Laura Prepon from That 70's show) gets thrown in federal prison for drug trafficking 5 years after the fact.
 Her husband (Jason Biggs, who thankfully they pretty much wrote out of the second season. He reminds me too much of the Bar Mttzvah boy from SNL) and the rest of her family have a problem with this.

Most of the story takes place inside the prison, and they provide a pretty good back story on most of the characters.

There are several stories that happen simultaneously but it's done so well, that it doesn't distract from the main focus of each show.

There are several actresses and actors for which the show will be considered their 'break out' roles.
"Crazy Eyes", "Red", and "Pennsatucky" come to mind.

Two different fields at Oakland International. The south field (cargo, 1 runway) and the north field (general aviation, 3 runways). TFA says north field.

Eh. I might turn on my Netflix account again. Lately we just pick a show and buy it season by season used.

Husband was ashamed that I never watched 24 before so that's what we are watching at the moment. I hope to watch Dexter next.

Around the world in a top-flight single engine Turboprop?  Pardon me if I am...unimpressed.  Heck, my Dad flew his piper from Colorado to Pekin and then Hong Kong...the long way, via NYC, Gander, Iceland and Paris...on a single piston engine.
