#6247: Dunning-Kreuger in action, right there.

"It’s traditional to take some lessons first".

Two videos. First video shows a guy who's never had a single lesson in flying a helicopter take about $250,000 out of his pocket, douse it with lighter fluid, and toss a match on it.

In fact, doing that would have been safer. It's one thing for him to risk his own fool neck, but he was risking other peoples' lives with his stupidity. He's lucky no one died.

$250,000 is a lot of money to spend on a 30-second flight with only a "good" landing. ("Any landing you can walk away from is a good one.")

Second video is, at least, less dangerous and expensive, but no less foolish. It looks like a "great" landing ("If you can still use the airplane afterwards, it's a great landing.") but that's more luck than design.

Yep, keep on polishing that turd. "What you call the Liberal Elite, we call being well-educated," went the uneducated boob's bumper sticker. The more you idiots do this kind of thing, the more Trumpening you get. Enjoy!

Couple from the old Pensieve:

This is what celebrities think should be done, all right. "I have fifty million in the bank, but you stupid suburbanites aren't taxed enough!"

Yet another failure of socialized education. It's "outcome-based" math at its finest.

The simple solution to this problem is to send all of them back at the same time. Being in the United States is not a human, nor is it a civil, right. If you're caught in, or entering, the US illegally, you should be sent back--and if you dragged your kids along, they should be deported, too.

End "anchor babies" and send them all back. If you can't come here legally, don't come. We have quite enough of the tired and poor and huddled masses and whatever shit is carved on the Statue of Liberty.

Today was OT day, and I got a splitting headache partway through, and then came home and collapsed. I simultaneously hope and don't hope they extend this "OT Mondays" thing. The money helps, but it's wearying.

Well, it's done for this week, anyway. Off to WoW!

    I can't log on at all now. "World Server is down" no matter which toon on which server I try. That's if it just doesn't hang up at the loading screen…

  • #8474: I GOT A PONY!

    I kept using that phrase, "As long as I'm wishing, I'd like a pony," so STxAR sent me a pony. It's a little one. Electronic, too. It makes horse…

  • #8473: Way to go
