“There are no more bad days in life.” July 23, 2009

Posted by kevlarchick in Heroes, Women Ranting.

That’s what my kid’s science teacher said when he was chosen by NASA to become an astronaut.   He will go next year with the Teachers in Space program.

How cool is that? 

Back in the day, buddy set two world records on a KC-10 aircraft.  

Big bad mofo.   So is the plane.   

Space?  Aint no thang.

Space? Ain't no thang.

Uh, that’s not a KC-10. That’s a C-17.

Here’s a KC-10:

2. Dave in Texas - July 23, 2009

Cool story.

Here’s a nose-view of a DC-10.

Says he also logged a bazillion hours in a BUFF. I wonder what record he set in the DC-10? Fastest fillup evar?

3. Dave in Texas - July 23, 2009

I meant KC-10, which is of course a DC-10 weeth a beeeeeg gastank.

4. kevlarchick - July 23, 2009

William Shatner was offered a free flight on Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two, and he turned it down because it’s too dangerous for him.

I could understand being that risk-adverse if you had young children, but come on. Butch up, Captain Kirk.

28 comments to what Geoff?

Michael - July 23, 2009

IB’s 100,000th comment.

9. Lipstick - July 23, 2009

Let me help.

10. Cathy - July 23, 2009

Cool, KC. Neat slice of American Life.
Thanks for sharing and kudos to the Teach!

I’ll help too…

11. Lipstick - July 23, 2009

Cathy, have I mentioned lately how great the apron is? I use it all the time.

12. daveintexas - July 23, 2009

Calliope is a word that is mysterious and haunting, and makes you think there is an unspeakable horror that will befall if you get closer.

13. William Shatner - July 23, 2009

Butch up, Captain Kirk.

Aww come on! Give me a break will ya? I’ve never cared for planes – particularly since that one REALLY bad flight some years ago.

14. Mrs. Peel - July 23, 2009

Oh man. I’d jump on SpaceShipTwo without a second thought.

15. Spaceship Two - July 23, 2009


16. Sobek - July 23, 2009

*changes name to ´SpaceShipTwo´*

17. Michael - July 23, 2009

Remember when it was a big deal when we got Comment No. 10,000?

Geezer was a happy man that day.

18. Mrs. Peel - July 23, 2009


19. Will - July 23, 2009

A hundred hundreds? Spiffy.

20. Sobek - July 23, 2009

Cedarford still sucks.

21. Michael - July 23, 2009

Sobek, didn’t you have an entire Cedarford Sucks website somewhere?

22. Tushar - July 23, 2009

They named a tanker aircraft after Kevlarchick? How cool is that?

23. Sobek - July 23, 2009

Nope, not me.

Michael - July 23, 2009

Cedarford Sucks is still out there!

And it was Digitalbrownshirt.

24. Michael - July 23, 2009

I see that people are being very cagey. Nobody wants to say something stupid for our 100,000th comment.

I’ll bet the honor goes to some retard from The Hostages who wanders over here.

25. Mrs. Peel - July 23, 2009

Isn’t it a thousand hundreds, Will?

All I ask is that the 100,000th comment refer to Kay Bailey Hutchison as a stupid RINO bitch. Then I can go to sleep happy every night.

Anyway, I have to go make dinner now, so y’all have fun competing.

26. gnusnow - July 23, 2009

Can I help?

27. Dave in Texas - July 23, 2009

HAHAHAHAHA. I never saw that before.

28. kevlarchick - July 23, 2009

Tushar, how nice of you to associate me with a TANKER.

I don’t care what anyone says. You ROCK.

29. Davewing Plover in Texas - July 23, 2009

DOES anybody remember the song in the start of Doctor STRANGELOVE when the airplanes were getting gasoline in the air was TRY A LITLLE TENDERNESS?

30. Davewing Plover in Texas - July 23, 2009

31. Vmaximus - July 23, 2009

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

32. Vmaximus - July 23, 2009

Crap I am in the bucket, do not bother getting me out it was the stupid H2 crap Michael likes so well
Are we there yet?

33. Scrappy - July 23, 2009

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is a stupid RINO bitch who needs to shut her face.

34. Vmaximus - July 23, 2009

Thanks Michael (or whomever) for getting me out of the bucket.

AF pilots are teh ghey. Enlisted man in the back of the tanker “flies” the fuel probe into the receiving aircraft. In the Navy and Marine Corps, the aviator flies the IFR probe into the basket.

And that’s one of the differences between pilots and aviators.

36. Vmaximus - July 23, 2009

Race on!
Sky vs a Great Dane

37. daveintexas - July 23, 2009

Yeah, it’s probably that. Not the sizes of the aircraft being refueled and the tanker.

38. Michael - July 23, 2009

Erm, Vmax, you screwed up the Sky vs. Great Dane link.

39. Vmaximus - July 23, 2009

oops Sorry Michael
race on!
Try this one

40. Michael - July 23, 2009

That’s not a Great Dane. Looks like a young Doberman Pinscher to me.
