I include myself in that.
Just trying to figure our how many runway centerline lights I need to miss on my next takeoff roll as to not get the branded a tool.

Very entertaining to say the least.
I just landed in MIA and hit every frikkin one of them. I guess I AM a tool.

The proper technique is to hit every one on the takeoff roll. When you are about 20 knots from VR just look over to see if the other pilot notices (a quick glance using your peripherals while concentrating on the TO.) Its usually good for a laugh when they realize that you were doing it for entertainment value.

Who knows. This is one of the many, many things that the only true answer is: that's the way we have always done it. I have asked and usually get a shrug of the shoulders and a shaking of the head in a back in forth manner.

Default Two Nominations

1) the crew of my current 4 day trip. What started out as speaking only Spanish in the van to and from the hotel has now become all Spanish all the time including cabin to flight deck conversations. No matter how many times I say it the captain doesn't care that I no hablo.

2) me for nominating an entire crew.

Oh I wish I would have known you were coming to Miami Buzz. I would have like to have met you.

P.S. I maybe a tool but I'm not a stalker.

TOTD: The ramp planner that has you coming into, and waiting for, the gate your commuter flight is leaving from.

You were going to miss it anyway, but nothing like getting your nose rubbed in it.
