Next time I fly I think I'll wear a clerical collar and shirt. Not that I'm afraid, just hoping that it means the plane WON'T FALL OUT OF THE SKY!

Why does toast land butter side down ? Answer that one !

The best I got out of that was that 'equations are not explanations.'
That helps a lot.

Yet Albert Einstein had a flying car.


Answer that one !

Toast (nearly) always lands butter-side down because air resistance causes the toast to tumble as it falls and the butter side is heavier. Gravity causes that side to... well... um...

Because it wants to, LeDud. We just have to accept its decision.

But a cat always lands on the buttered side UP! I tested the theory on mine.

So all you people actually believe that planes can fly?? Don’t you realize that it is all really a deep state conspiracy to get people to gather at “airports”, where they are drugged and fooled into thinking they are flying, all the while they are being brainwashed into falling for - well, some lefty nonsense that hasn’t been entirely revealed yet.

The Truth is out there! Stay in your basement and don’t let them get you!

Well, I don't know about planes, but I know with helicopters, it's not so much that they fly, but rather that they're so ugly the ground repels them.

Sort of unrelated, but the best scene in Fight Club is when Ed Norton is in the airliner that is disintegrating in flight.

I'm staying with the Italian dude. That's the facts as I have always known them so don't go telling me different cause I ain't listening!

“I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”
― Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
