That's an excellent video. I know a pilot who will follow his FMS-1 needle no matter where it's pointing. All the other instrumentation be damned.

I don't think there needs to be much distinction, since most early christian prayer started with "O god" or "O lord" and eventually changed to "dear lord" or "dear god".

Also note that people use 'dear lord' or 'dear god' the same way people yell "OH GOD" when something is happening.

ALSO the snackbar stuff occurs when something bad OR good is happening....so IMHO saying "oh god" is the EXACT same thing as "allahu akbar". That that for what its worth.

How many times did you blow the cart out, slam the receiver into the system and spam the reset button until it started working?

Or are you using an emulator, cheater?

I can't believe I just had a minor conversation with someone where i pointed out how much islam and christianity can mirror each other...and I wasn't called a terrorist homosexual.

Thank you, Globerunner!

None, and no.

I installed a new 72 pin connector and have a fully new functioning NES

An airplane crash thread turns in to a discussion about fixing NESes and bashing religion.

Doesn't seem that unusual...you generally want to get statements from everybody involved in an investigation before they start getting ideas and interpretations of events planted in their heads by members of the media.

I like how the YouTube commenters are crying conspiracy already, though.

At that time 60 of the survivors were unaccounted for and the police were trying to find them all. They'll all need to fill out a statement and do other paperwork.

It's not a conspiracy to cover up the accident. (Conspiracy theories seem to be popular nowadays.)

Srs. They aren't going to cover this up. I think the story broke. Even CNN has it.

What I got from this was that if you're not going to come, and you're getting tired, hop off and just finish yourself off with your hand on her chest/face.

The inside of that plane is ridiculous. It's amazing that "only" 2 people died.

Also, in that video, is that another Asiana plane taking off in the background @1:57? Eek, no thanks.

This! Watching the wreck video it's pretty frickin amazing that there weren't more casualties. I'm sure there were plenty of crapped pants though.

There was a very similar crash at LHR with a BA 777 several years ago attributed to ice in the fuel system that caused the engines to roll back and become unresponsive and the aicraft crashed before the threshold. The worst injury in that incident was a broken leg after the gear broke through the bottom bulkhead of the aircraft cabin. Now this incident, which really only has one fatality attributed to the actual incident itself.

Pretty impressive, the 777 is built like a brick ****house. If that had been an older aircraft, say a DC10, it probably would have incinerated itself before everyone had gotten off.

Flew to jax last night from ATL and hit some major turbulence.

Evidently it damaged the skin of the plane - lost some fiberglass or something and they had to get a new plane in for the return to ATL

It was pretty scary
