If someone is intent on publishing, they should absolutely NOT post anything more than the slightest excerpt online.Post a chapter?

Hot Damn - first post of 2014. It's probably in here somewhere already, but I think I've developed epiretinal membrane/macular pucker from staring at all this sheeit.

The Jesuitical Bachar, when asked why he didn’t try for a bigger haul, said he knew when enough was enough: “I felt lucky to get in and out once. Everyone gets busted when they get greedy.”

Don't get greedy.
Know when enough is enough.
Keep a good head and always carry a light bulb.

If you get busted, call:




Addendum:

Sorry Reilly, Ms. Earhart was quite familiar with the seaplane and would never have indulged in such folly. That is to say, landing in a lake without benefit of pontoons.

This seems to only cover two choices. Are there others?Let me be the first to volunteer to finish and publish the book if Ric perishes before it is done.I will of course be represented by the Arellano-Felix lawyer of choice (lives right across the bay, we used to cliff jump together).867-5309
Oh, you don't know me, but you make me so happy
I tried to call you before, but I lost my nerve
I tried my imagination, but I was disturbed

Gillsburg, Tenerife, Lower Merced Pass Lake.

Something's happening here - No?

Reports are that various thrillseekers and memorabilia hunters scoured the site for guitar picks.

Did the plane come close to going down in the Mississippi River? Was the water freezing?






It's get murkier & murkier, or clearer & clearer, depending on how you view it.

On the 27th of March, 1977, a KLM passenger plane was taxiing along the runway at the Tenerife airport in the Canary Islands of Spain, and it collided with a Pan Am jet. It was said that the pilots of the KLM plane were confused over departure instructions, and they took to the runway without permission. A total of 583 people were killed in the crash.

No marijuana was recovered. [removed - out of kindness I suppose].






Draw your own conclusions. Where was the mouse of merced during all these happenings?

Zman, you're often quite funny but I think it is, at the least , bad form to imply the Tenerife tragedy was in any way influenced by the evil weed. It was simply poor communications on
both the controllers' and pilots' part.

Reilly -

I defer to your greater knowledge of aviation history and have withdrawn any comments besmirching the reputations of the pilots.

My god...

We are less than a year and a half from the 10 year anniversary of the first post.

Yosemite Gold is due to come out this year. I think you should do every thing you can to have your book available within a month of Yosemite Gold's release.

Most everybody knew who Amelia Earhart was, nobody knows where she was (is?).

huh? Amelia whats-her-name? and this thread is about what again? some weirdly segmented view of popular culture, aero history and juvenile drug references - no wonder licky's such a no-show on his own site, even he must be embarrassed by the digression

mo sid, mo sid (what no applause?)

a little tunnel vision there, eh sid?

you better free your mind instead

but keep on truckin'



Anyway, the only thing interesting about this thread is the digressions, you on the other hand, as has been pointed out repeatedly, are not.

c'mon Z-pac - you're smarter than this . . . wasting your intellect and obvious talent on a silly Licky-stained internet thread seems beneath you somehow - why don't you join the lickster for the oft-mentioned "cup of coffee" he's always offering me and help him finish his chore . . . since he's clearly not up to the task - if you have the time to post mr. magoo maybe you could lead the blind licky to water

Well sidmo, you're right. This is clearly escapism. Better than TV though.

Maybe I should jump ship about here.
