hats off, simply amazing
jar-head, are you really that f*cking stupid?
You can`t rationalize an irrational fear.
Because things outside your control NEVER happens and everything goes to a fairytale plan. What are you so skilled at that you`ll NEVER mess up...at 13-17 years to boot! LMAO
I`ve tried to figure out your capitalization choices for five minutes; I just don`t get it!
Not good enough???? Ummm actually everyone on the plane survived and he didn`t kill anyone on the ground...that sounds like "good enough" to me.
With a link title like this one, you know it`s going to be a news article. If you know you won`t like it, why do you click it? I don`t understand.
We can fly through high winds, lightning, and land on ice, and I`m fine. Its just when I think about those stupid birds...
I declare this is a terrorist act on America, by the Canucks!!
I`m assuming you still bathe and go outside though. You`re scared to fly because you`re scared of flying/heights/falling/other/etc. It has nothing to do with any deeper argument."
I think the main reason a lot of people have a fear of flying is because you have to completely give up control. If your car breaks down on the highway, you still can do your best to maneuver is it to safety, if your train crashes you can try and jump out a window or something. Even if these are just illusions of control, they`re more comforting than having absolutely no control when flying.
im not waiting to hit the ground. end of story lol
Yeah, I thought of that, but considering it was a flock of birds, I don`t think there are any safety precautions they can boost for that, except for telling their customers that they`re safer now.
"I mean really? a bird? Na thats just a coverup...."
It was a flock of birds. I mean, I`m not a pilot, so I don`t know how bad that is, but still considering that he made a pretty successful and safe landing, I don`t think it was a conspiracy (of what, anyway?)
I`m assuming you still bathe and go outside though. You`re scared to fly because you`re scared of flying/heights/falling/other/etc. It has nothing to do with any deeper argument.
"What are your statistics when something actually goes wrong?"Still statistics. "Where are your statistics?"They are metaphysical constructs, they don`t exist as objects in space, they merely explain things within them.
In response, I have my own question: When is math? Huh?! Answer me that! When is math when you don`t crash in a plane?! WHEN DAMNIT?!
(Also, you could argue when a flight does crash that they will bump up the precautions for a while, so straight after a crash is usually the best time to fly).
Poor Geese :)
HOWEVER, it`s still the worst airport in the country. #1 worst for arrival delays due to the runways not being ready or clear. and # 6 worst for departures for the same reason.
That leads me to believe the place is either understaffed, or the staff is incompetant. The dozen or so times I`ve flown through or arrived at La Guardia have been very unpleasant experiences. Not to say they had anything to do with a flock of Geese slamming into a plane......
---doesn`t really work like that. The odds would stay the same. So if the odds this morning were 1 to 2000, it would still be 1 in 2000 tomorrow. The only really difference would be that there is one less plane.
You can`t say that they didn`t already have their crash, because the crash has no idea what airline crashed, and so it could just as easily be US airways again. Also, it won;t take 1999 for it to happen again in the sense that probability is not and almost never is exact, there`s great variability.
lmao Who gives a hoot?
primetimekin didn`t say it was in New Jersey, sfcg did, he was quoting him.
If it happens every 1 in 2k so to say... then they already had their one. Its going to take 1999 for it to happen again.
Statistically speaking, that doesn`t make any sense.
Uh... more people die in cars than planes.
This would actually encourage me to pick US airways next time. More than likely it wont happen again
"That`s why I`ll never fly out of LA GUARDIA again. That airport is the worst airport in the country. Worst delay times, and come on..... it`s in Jersey."MIA...
Well, let see...Car (head on crash with oncoming traffic)..Train (derails or head on crash)..A cruise ship (pirates,ice,rouge wave,bad food)..a bike (get run over by cars,trucks)...
thats my argument as to why i refuse to fly too xD
Also, if the plane went down in 30mins the odds are good for survivors thankfully
The flight was heading out of New York, going to Charlotte.
Uhh, a plane? Stop? They can make emergency landings, you know. Depends on what goes wrong, as does all of the other things that you mentioned. Personally, I think that a boat would be worse, because even if you have a life raft, you`re still stuck in the middle or the ocean.
