Why The Long Face?

I can kid because I've never experienced any higher G's than that of Earth's own pull on my fat butt. I'd certainly toss my cookies and pass out at about 1.5. Still, I gotta wonder if there's any video of Ras or Brigid doing this. I'd pay real money to see that.

Thank heavens for the Platex "3 G" bra!

I did 4 or 5 and it hurts. Like, I just want it to stop, hurt. Much love to the flyboys that do it day in and day out. And worse? The really seasoned guys use to eat shit like burritos before flying. Talk about iron stomach.

Well one day I was on the flight line and one of our company aircraft declared an emergency and came SCREAMing in on final. The trucks followed him to the ramp where he popped out and RAN to the bathroom. I think one of the burritos took its revenge.

"Tower to One Niner Three, copy emergency. What is the nature of the emergency? Over."

"One Niner Three to Tower, Emergency involves Taco Bell. Over."

"Tower to One Niner Three, copy Taco Bell. You are cleared for immediate landing on Runway Two."

[Yeah, I know I mangled the radio chatter. Try the veal anyway.]

@Brigid: per your dating post... a centrifuge could possibly counter any settling us old folks have experienced...

Taco Bell! Classic. The aircrew would bring bags of the stuff in. I think it might have been a silent attempt to out do each other!
