I like airplanes
I like airplanes because:
Airplanes usually kill you quickly, women take their time.
Airplanes can be turned on by a flick of a switch.
Airplanes don’t get mad if you do a “touch and go.”
Airplanes don’t object to a preflight inspection.
Airplanes come with manuals that explain their operation and behavior.
Airplanes have strict limits on weight and balance.
Airplanes can be flown any time of the month.
Airplanes don’t come with in-laws.
Airplanes don’t care about how many other airplanes you’re already flying, much less looking at.
Airplanes and pilots both arrive (and take off) at the same time.
Airplanes don’t mind if you buy airplane magazines.
Airplanes expect to be tied down.
Airplanes don’t comment on your piloting skills except in real extreme cases, and then you’re happy they do (GROUND WARNING! PULL UP! PULL UP!)
However….when airplanes go quiet…..just like women, it’s usually not a good sign.
