You can place a certain retired surgeon right next to the aa 777 guy for TOTD as well.

Oh yeah, for sure. Thankfully the mag has Martha Lunken. Enjoy her stories. Len Morgan and Baxter were the best though. Think there's a DAL guy now too isn't there?

Anderson Cooper is listed at 5'10".
Maybe a bit of "fudge" factor in that.
I'm curious to the location of two thumbs in this picture.

Guess what size platforms Les is wearing. I've heard the 777 seat barely gets him above the dash.

Couple years later I'm on furlough and I'm taking a class for certification in water treatment. The word comes up on the power point and I think to myself now if anyone knows how to say potable it will be the guys who make the stuff... Wrong!! After that I gave up caring

What's poh-table water? I'm asking honestly. I guess I'm one of those tools that doesn't know that the word poh-table is actually a word.

I thought everyone else was pronouncing it wrong. I figured pot-able water meant water that was safe to consume, treated. I.E. Safe to put in a pot to boil up some ramen or oatmeal in the galley.

Why is it called/pronounced poh-table?

Not trying to be a jack ---, just trying to learn. Thanks.

From Old French potable, from Latin pōtābilis, from pōtō ‎(“I drink”).
