Blocked pitot tubes are no joke.

I thought most of them had their own private jets...

When you give a Cazador a machine gun, bad things happen.

Just the latest phase of attacks on humanity there. Now the animal life is working hard on preventing humans from escaping the Deathworld-esque Hellscape of Oz.

Relax, Aussie Farkers. I realize Oz is not really full of animals which seem purposely designed to maim or kill humans. But that's the internet meme, so I'm running with it- even though it isn't necessarily deserved.

Feel free to respond with the meme about Americans being stupid, fat, and stupid. We deserve it.

Let us know when they're piloting to take down aircraft.

I'd hate to be the guy who has to attach those tags to the wasps.

Australia? Try Addison, TX. The 2nd thing you learn at flight school in Texas is to look for wasp nests and whatnot in the pitot tube, stall warning slot and wing vents

/Mosquitoes? You look for them AS TRAFFIC. Texas skeeters have N numbers and landing lights, pard.
