Had a Dallas guy get deadheaded to NY once because he was on RSV to fly a 4 day with me when I was in NY. We got 25 minutes into the trip and he said he had to say a prayer to the good lord and savior jesus christ to forgive us for our sins, every time I cursed. Said he knew what the right seat was like, and just wanted me to know. I didnt talk for 4 days, as the other captains in NY had ruined my vocabulary.

Man how did you not ask him if he thought George Carlin's "Words You Can't Say On TV" would ever be allowed on air or ponder aloud the finer points of U.S. Navy communication tradition.

Scientific fact.
Not at 1 am.

Jeeeez! I'm a Christian and even I think that's ridiculous! Some people are so strange.

I flew a death-crawl of a trip with a Mormon once who spent the entire time trying to convert me to Mormonism. I was a brand new guy still on probation and didn't have the gonads or understanding to be able to tell him to shut the ---- up, please.

He had a pocket "Book of Mormon" that he'd read between legs in first class.

I curse any pilot (CA or FO) who uses the captive audience/environment of the cockpit to proselytize.

First posting, so I consider this thread very special (and all of you very special, too) I've spent all day reading this thread and the person in the hotel room next door must be wondering why he gets treated to a burst of laughter every now and then (I particularly liked the Adam West crickets reference).

So, straight for the jugular, my particular additions to the tool box go to the verbose crowd. You know who you are, the ones who just love to hear the sound of your own voices:

"XXX checkin' in" (well what else are you doing) or "XXX with you" (yes, that's why you're on this frequency). "Okay, understand we're cleared direct to XXX" (excellent, leave out your comprehension and allow the rest of us some peace from your inane comments). "Okay, we'd like to request 35 oh" (well, go on then, request it).

As for the Guard Nazis; I heard an exchange the other night that even shut up the Oberfuhrerguardenpolizen:

Cathay Pacific XXX: "All stations in the area of Sakurajima (a volcano in the South of Japan), it looks like there's been an eruption and the cloud is up to FL350, drifting east"

American voice: "You're on Guard"

Cathay Pacific XXX (rich Australian accent): "Yes, I know I'm on Guard and I'm transmitting important information of an operational nature. Now shut up and keep your mouth shut you obnoxious wanker"

He gets a thumbs up from me, Larry.

The Brits and Aussies can certainly be tools in their own right, but this guy gets a free pass for life! Perfect! Chalk one up for "Cool of the Day."

I keep wondering exactly what these D-Bags think guard is for? Do they think it's the RF equivalent of a sacred cow, set aside as holy that no one should ever use?

I thought Guard was only to be used for making practice PA's, around 30West, about 3am...?

No?

TOTD goes to this guy. Clearly his an aviation expert who knows his airplanes when he sees them.
Must have been a big problem for them to have the hood up.
