That is not me saying that. Its a quotation just FYI.
You forgot the remaining 4.3% of us that can't add.

First off you're on national television. Shave the scent saver and put on something nicer than blue jeans and a tee shirt.

Second. When you go to demonstrate the stopping capabilities of the 777 on a 4000' strip on nation television.... make sure you use reverse thrust. Even the anchor and the retired 777 (real) pilot had a hard time from busting up when they started to see dirt, grass and trees go by!

Smooth move buddy.......
Apparently his employer wasn't too pleased with the unprofessional image he presented, either...

Spoiler... he was fired!

A wise old pilot once told me

"Anything over 69 1/2 is waste of effort."

What is it they say in the Navy?

"If the Minimum weren't good enough, it wouldn't be the minimum!"

or was it, "Anything over 70% is just showing off!"

and at the Air Force Academy,

"If you have to cheat to win... WIN!"

Doctor's say he's got a 50-50 chance, though there is only a 10% chance of that.

Tool of the day. The employer for letting an idiot talk to CNN:

"This is not the first time. He's been warned before," he told The Associated Press.

"Even though I let him be on TV he shamed us Canadians and shamed my company with the way he was dressing like he was 15 years old,"

The guy was a known screwup. What did he expect?

"CNN viewership increased 84% since Malaysia 370 coverage."

America is doomed...

Obviously. Why else do you think they are covering and showing so much Flight 370 stuff?

Oh but it gets better, there's more BREAKING NEWS on CNN!!

Martin Savidge must have passed his 777 checkride, because now he's in a mini-sub, all the way down at...

50'!

Yes, he's way down deep, at Fifty feet!!

OH MY!

It's riveting TV!

Don Lemon just told me so!

Both CNN and Faux News have become reality entertainment shows, rather than reporting any real "News".
