    Slap some chrome on it and it will be fine

    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me

    want to lose literally hours of your life? Google "Barn Find Airplanes" and then click the images link. You will get such gems as:





    Good finds:
    The Barn Cub

    Barn find, Proctor 3 G-AKEX ex LZ791 - Key Publishing Ltd Aviation Forums

    this is the most facinating story:
    Abandoned Catalina seaplane: 50 years between the sea and the desert
    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: What does that mean, "we're not in?"
    Annette: Wild guess? I think it means they're not in.
    Bobby: Boy, it's quite a piece of dialogue when you intellectual masterminds get together! I should be writing this down!

    Frankie, the Big Kahuna: But what does "we" mean?
    Bobby: [impossibly sarcastic] I think it's the plural form, meaning "more than one." Would you like me to conjugate that for you, Pop? Do you know what "conjugate" means, Dad?

    I must have made 100 parachute jumps out of DC-3s. They are very sturdy aircraft and I have seen them land softer on one engine than on 2. I remember more than once having to exit the plane on take off due to engine failures.
    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    It wasn't, that was the harley that was swept away by the japanese tsunami only to turn up on a north american beach. Supposedly the motor company is restoring it as we speak and going to put it on display in their museum.

    The Harley that "floated" across after the tsunami floated across in a box container. It arrived in much better shape than that unfortunate machine in the sand. They weren't called Harley Davidstones for nothing. Everyone knows a stone doesn't float.

    Hoof that is the same bike. It may have floated over in the container but it was recovered out of the sand next to the broken open container.
