    Duck Hunters

    Five doctors went duck hunting one day. Included in the group were a GP, a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon and a pathologist. After a time, a bird came winging overhead. The first to react was the GP who raised his shotgun, but then hesitated. "I'm not quite sure it's a duck," he said, "I think that I will have to get a second opinion." And of course by that time, the bird was long gone. Another bird appeared in the sky thereafter. This time, the pediatrician drew a bead on it. He too, however, was unsure if it was really a duck in his sights and besides, it might have babies. "I'll have to do some more investigations," he muttered, as the creature made good its escape. Next to spy a bird flying was the sharp-eyed psychiatrist. Shotgun shouldered, he was more certain of his intended prey's identity. "Now, I know it's a duck, but does it know it's a duck?" The fortunate bird disappeared while the fellow wrestled with this dilemma. Finally, a fourth fowl sped past and this time the surgeon's weapon pointed skywards. BOOM!! The surgeon lowered his smoking gun and turned nonchalantly to the pathologist beside him. "Go see if that was a duck, will you?"

    Thanks Casey, now I can get back to my daily routine! By the way, are you still on active duty? It seems like you have been in a long time! I really enjoy trying to keep up with most of the guys and without you keeping this place going, I don't think it would be possible. Also, I am sure that everybody misses Bob Daley. Ken

    Drunk Driver?

    Late one Friday night a policeman spotted a man driving very erratically through the streets of Dublin. They pulled the man over and asked him if he had been drinking that evening. "Aye, so I have. 'Tis Friday, you know, so me and the lads stopped by the pub where I had six or seven pints. And then there was something called "Happy Hour" and they served these mar-gar-itos which are quite good. I had four or five O' those. Then I had to drive me friend Mike home and O' course I had to go in for a couple of Guinessis -- couldn't be rude, ye know. Then I stopped on the way home to get another bottle for later..." And the man fumbled around in his coat until he located his bottle of whiskey, which he held up for inspection. The officer sighed, and said, "Sir, I'm afraid I'll need you to step out of the car and take a breathalyzer test." Indignantly, the man said, "Why? Don't ye believe me?!?"

    New Driver

    Martin had just received his brand new driver's license. The family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. "I'll bet you're back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive," says the beaming boy to his father. "Nope," comes dad's reply, "I'm gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like you've been doing to me all these years."
  11. The investigation is complete and the SIR has been released. Yes there was a CVR and FDR onboard. The #1 engine rolled back during takeoff roll momentarily. The crew did not reject the take off. The engine was shut down after takeoff and the pilot turned into the dead engine at a low altitude and low airspeed using the incorrect rudder inputs for a #1 engine out situation. Part of the investigation included close inspection of the propellers due to the KC-130Tmishap in July 2017 over Mississippi. Failure of these blades was consistent with ductile overload, not fatigue or corrosion. The #1 engine was also under extreme scrutiny as it was reported to have rolled back when the aircraft arrived in Savannah weeks earlier.

    EB-66 FE

    Don, I think you've hit the nail on the head. I agree, no way would a non-essential person be allowed to fly on an aircraft entering hostile territory. Further, as you said, the fact the aircraft took off, flew the sortie and landed back at home base lends further credence to your statement. Guessing there was something peculiar going on in the outfit that caused senior leadership to decide a flt. eng. was necessary. My first five years were in a B-47E wing. The last three years were as a crew chief. Strange thing I don't remember ever washing my aircraft. And don't remember where the wash rack was. In my defense, I don't remember what I had for lunch. However, my next three assignments I vividly remember washing mine and other acft. … repeatedly. By the time I got to CCK thankfully had been promoted out of the wash rack crew. The 374th was doing it the smart way...by contractor. The one thing I remember well that you didn't mention was KP. The worst ass chewing I ever got was by the mess sergeant. Seems I left the potatoes in the peeler too long and they came out the size of golf balls.

    Prison vs. Work

    Prison vs. Work IN PRISON...You spend the majority of your time in an 8x10 cell. AT WORK....You spend most of your time in a 6x8 cubicle. IN PRISON...You get three meals a day. AT WORK....You only get a break for 1 meal and you have to pay for it. IN PRISON...You get time off for good behavior. AT WORK....You get rewarded for good behavior with more work. IN PRISON...A guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you. AT WORK....You must carry around a security card and unlock and open all the doors yourself. IN PRISON...You can watch TV and play games. AT WORK....You get fired for watching TV and playing games. IN PRISON...You get your own toilet. AT WORK....You have to share. IN PRISON...They allow your family and friends to visit. AT WORK....You cannot even speak to your family and friends. IN PRISON...All expenses are paid by taxpayers with no work required. AT WORK....You get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners. IN PRISON...You spend most of your life looking through bars from the inside wanting to get out. AT WORK....You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars. IN PRISON...There are wardens who are often sadistic. AT WORK....They are called supervisors. When I finally left my last place of work, it was just like being released from prison, as I was free to do whatever I wanted to.

    Orientation in Heaven

    Three buddies die in a car crash, and they go to heaven to an orientation. They are all asked, "When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you? The first guy says, "I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor of my time, and a great family man." The second guy says, "I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher which made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow." The last guy replies, "I would like to hear them say, "Look! He's moving!"

    US to boost nuke sniffing with modified C-130s

    IIRC the WC-130E's had the same system as the WC-135's, so why not use those pods again?
  18. I was standing at the bar one night minding my own business. This FAT ugly chick came up behind me, grabbed my behind and said, "You're kinda cute. You gotta phone number?" I said, "Yeah, you gotta pen?" She said, "Yeah, I got a pen". I said, "You better get back in it before the farmer misses you." Cost me 6 stitches but when you’re over seventy...who cares? Cowboy: "Give me 3 packets of condoms, please." Lady Cashier: "Do you need a paper bag with that, sir?" Cowboy: "Nah. She's purty good lookin'." When you’re over seventy...who cares? I was talking to a young woman in the bar last night. She said, "If you lost a few pounds, had a shave and got your hair cut, You'd look all right.” I said, “If I did that, I'd be talking to your friends over there instead of you.” Cost me a fat lip but, when you’re over seventy...who cares? I went to the pub last night and saw a BIG woman dancing on a table. I said, "Good legs." The girl giggled and said, "Do you really think so?" I said, "Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now." Cost me 6 more stitches. But when you’re over seventy...who cares?

    Business one-liners

    Business one-liners: As the economy gets better, everything else gets worse. As they say in Beirut, Shiite happens. Asking dumb questions is easier than correcting dumb mistakes. Assumption is the mother of all foul-ups. At any level of traffic, any delay is intolerable. Automatic simply means that you can't repair it yourself. Bad news drives good news out of the media. Bare feet magnetize sharp metal objects so they always point upward from the floor. Batman is the hero any of us could be, given determination, exercise, and deep psychological trauma. - Chris Jarocha-Ernst Be content with what you've got, but be sure you've got plenty. Business one-liners 16: Beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes clear to the bone. Before you give a colleague a piece of your mind, be sure you can spare it. Being a good communicator means people find out what is really wrong with you. Believing is seeing. Better latent than never. Beware of a dark-haired man with a loud tie. Beware of a tall dark man with a spoon up his nose. Beware of altruism. It is based on self-deception, the root of all evil. Beware of one who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds themself no wiser than before. They are full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way. - Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada's first prime minister Beware of those wearing suspenders with belts.

    Medical Science

    Two 80 year old men sat talking over the weather and the latest in medical science, and such, when one brings up the latest male medical miracle, Viagra. The other wasn't familiar with Viagra and asked the first man what it was for. The first man said, "It's the greatest thing I've ever known. The Fountain of Youth!! Makes you feel like a man of 30." The second then asked, "Can you get it over the counter?" "You probably could, if you took 2 pills", said the first man.
