A good lesson:
A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
The jet jockey decided to show off.
The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, "watch this!" And promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.
The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?
The C-130 pilot said, "That was impressive, but watch this!" The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said "What did you think of that?"
Puzzled, the F-1 6 pilot asked, "What the hell did you do?" The C-130 pilot chuckled. "I stood up, stretched my legs, went to the back, took a leak, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun."
When you are young and foolish - speed and flashy may be a good thing. When you get older and smarter - comfort and dull is not such a bad thing!!
