Stockticker, I have to confess I stopped reading as soon as ya brought NASA into it... they're going to "analyze" the problem-parts of Flight 587. (When's the last time NASA got involved in a PLANE CRASH???) Sorry, this is just reminding me of the CIA getting involved with the "explanation" for how TWA 800 went down. (The animated video they made was laughed out of existence by every pilot -- and even Boeing, the plane's manufacturer.)

As a side note, I only know how many lesbians it takes to change a lightbulb:

Eight. One to change it, three to organize the potluck, three to film an empowering documentary, and one to write a folksong about the experience.

I looked it up on google...

A bit off topic, but have they ever said anything yet about the flight data recorders? I know they were found in good shape, but that's all I've heard.

Donny, don't forget the whiny verse about how the old one got broke. Then he cut his finger, and it got infected, and totalled the pickup on the way to the hospital.

Hi Antiquary, who would ever have thought that Stockticker would have a wolf pack. I'm shocked. Light bulb bashers. LOL

I don't take light bulb bashing lightly, I'll have you know. It's another one of my pet peeves. (yeah I know everybody groans about my pet peeves).

I love your gifs!

How many poets does it take to change a lightbulb.

Three...one to curse the darkness, one to light a candle and one to screw in the bulb.

Helen, thank you for being a friend and respecting my overwrought lightbulb sensitivities. Not like some people I might add -- humph.

Uh-oh, I better leave before Rawbunzel gets here, low key moderation is not her thing and I feel a warning coming on...
