Default Wife was NOT amused . . .

Took the family on a beach vacation to Captiva Island. When my twin 4 year olds excitedly told mommy about the "sand castle" they and daddy built, the wife was not particularly amused.

The plane's camo is great. It really blends in with the background!

I heard the chinese are already splashing it. Its made of a coarser sand and ultimately won't remain together.

What type of bearings are used in the turbine that will hold up to that kind of FOD?

Please stop with the comments on a Friday night following a stressful week ... the corners of my lips are touching my ears ... and it's beginning to hurt!

I understand that Paul Watson has already ordered the Bob Barker to steam at flank speed to save the whales from being subjected to your jet wash. I bet you will be the subject of the next season of Whale Wars. I know the Japanese will be happy that fat old pirate has his focus on someone other than them for a change.

All I got to say, is that you better keep an eye out for the Justice Department, I'm sure they also need something to take the heat off of them for a while. And don’t forget, as it has been said lately from the fool on the hill, “You may think you are so smart, but you didn’t build it by yourself”! Yep, must have been a government infrastructure project that came out of the stimulus package.
