Cross Wind Jumbo Landing

I’m not a pilot but this video looks real to me. 
However, a number of people within the aviation community 
feel that this landing may be faked.
Some of the reasons given are that there are
 no visible navigation nor landing lights, 
the crosswind component appears to change significantly 
between the two final segments shown in this video,
 and braking appears to be too sudden. 
 I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

Caught Everyone Off Guard: 84-Year-Old Sings 
A Suspect Song On Americas Got Talent!


Frank The Singer: 74-Year-Old Channels Frank Sinatra -
 America's Got Talent 2014

    In 1873, a team of German explorers and their three dogs 
decided to penetrate the heart of the South American jungle. 
After twelve years, they had set up a fort in an Incan town, 
the centerpiece of which was a large idol with a huge ruby for an eye.
    The German church had sent out their best man
, Friar Wilhelm Werks three times to check on the progress of the fort
, and each time the appearance of the idol had sent him into fits of screaming,
 complete with shouts, curses, and rending of garments.
    Each time, he screamed so loud that he sent the dogs running for cover. 
And each time, he left with a warning that the next time he visited,
 the idol had better be torn down.
    The commander of the fort, 
Hans Brickner, received a message that Werks 
would be coming to visit again in a fortnight.
    He quickly called a meeting with his top commanders.
 All five agreed that the Friar would explode when he saw the idol still standing.
    "But," said Commander Brickner, "there's nothing to be done.
 If we take down the idol, we will anger the local tribe,
 and without their cooperation we're dead."
    His second-in-command, Herr Kommandant Wagner said
, "In that case, we'd better make sure we put the dogs away."

    "You know how scared the dogs get when 
Friar Werks goes off on the Fort of Jewel Eye

36 Weird Things You Never Knew About Toilet Paper

17. Colored toilet paper was popular in the U.S. until the 1940s.

18. The reason toilet paper disintegrates so quickly
 when wet is that the fibers used to make it are very short. 

19. On the International Space Station, 
they still use regular toilet paper but
 it has to be sealed in special containers and compressed.

20. During Desert Storm, the U.S. Army 
used toilet paper to camouflage their tanks. 

21. In 1973 Johnny Carson caused a toilet paper shortage.
 He said as a joke that there was a shortage,
 which there wasn’t, until everyone believed him
 and ran out to buy up the supply.
 It took three weeks for some stores to get more stock. 

22. There is a contest sponsored by Charmin 
to design and make wedding dresses out of toilet paper. 


An enterprising African family was well known
 for mining large amounts of various, expensive, green gemstones.
 The quality of their gemstones was unequalled in the world
and the family's success caused them to lose touch
 with the realities of outside events.
 By not paying attention to what was going on in the marketplace,
 they frequently made the mistake of overproduction.

During one particular year, 
the market for the green jewels fell sharply
 and the family soon realized they had produced
 far more stones than they could ever sell without 
driving the market even further into the ground.

So the problem then became:
 what to do with the excess stones
. After considerable debate, 
the family agreed to a unique method of using the surplus. 
They donated them to the local high school sports department
 that used them to pave the running track.

It was indeed a beautiful thing and soon became known as the 
"Track of all Jades".

The Founding Fathers were sitting around a table sometime in 1776
 working on the constitution. It had been a long day. 

"Whew! It's getting rather warm in here, isn't it? " 
"Shall I open the window? " 
"No, that's alright.
 I'll just take off my jacket, and roll up my sleeves. " 
"Hey, that's a good idea.
 Why don't we include that in the constitution? " 
"What? That we're allowed to take our jackets off 
and roll up our sleeves while at work? "
"Yeah, but that doesn't sound very smooth. 
How about, 
'Everyone shall have the right to bare arms?
