Just looked up some of these and they all had one common factor: Florida. (and ohio, which is pretty much Florida only colder)

The way it was explained to me was: Shake the US, those without a good grip fall to the lower corners.

Unhappy And the Winner of Tool of the day is.. A TIE!

Hello fellow pilots,

For TOOL of the day, I would like to nominate my fellow pilots whose lofty perches are so high that they have lost sight, and sympathy for, those they obviously deem as "beneath" them. Of course, I am referring to our fellow pilots that have no sympathy for the plight of our fellow aviation workers, and our fellow Americans, the TSA Agents.

While I have had some bad experiences with certain TSA agents in my time, the overwhelming majority were respectful, if not downright pleasant. I realize that this is not always the case, but when ANY fellow American is faced with the prospect of losing their ability to house and feed their family, they definitely deserve our respect and sympathy.

The fact that I even have to post this is downright sad....

I nominate the crew in the Delta 757 deicing not only the wings but the tail as well in LAS this morning. Not a cloud or drop of moisture in the sky, 48 degrees outside. 🤔🤨

I heard that the rest of the world has established GO FUND ME to build a wall to keep a certain someone (have to keep it apolitical folks) within the U.S. border.

Sorry I consider the tsa a fellow aviation worker as much as I consider the janitor a fellow aviation worker. Ive got other friends who work in the federal government (park rangers) and its just part of the gig. They get great benefits and this comes with the territory. Tsa is one of the biggest jokes of our federal budget.
