50 pound slab of blue ice falls off Air Force One narrowly missing “Occupy Las Vegas” protesters
I can think of only one thing "Oh piss boy!"Are peasants on catapults next?
It's not surprising considering the amount of crap you find on AF one nowadays.
"Of course, if you soaked a field occupied by Occupiers in urine... how could you tell? "Hencefort, this shall be known as "Keel's Koan"
The shocking part to me is that there is an Occupy Las Vegas protest. I had to look them up.They are sitting in a parking lot on the edge of the desert well away from anyone. Why would anyone care about a camping group?
From a commenter on my take on this story, "So Obama's using icy BMs on the Occupy Wall Street crowd now?"Heh. I LOL'd.
That pun is so horrible that I'm stealing it. :D
Im surprised chris matthews didnt rush to put it in his drink.
Same "bomb", same joke, maybe 25 years ago. Happened somewhere around Denver, IIRC...
Having spent part of my time as an aircraft mechanic working on aircraft toilets, I don't believe tales of blue ice from the toilets falling during flight. There are conditions in which large amounts of ice can accumulate from condensation when flying through clouds, or rain and sleet, at below freezing temps, but for the presumed multiple failures in in the toilet servicing system to occur, would indicate incredibly bad maintenance. I know our company had better than average maintenance, but I don't believe others, in this case the Air Force, are that much worse. The ice that accumulates from flying through icing conditions could peel off, but ice falling from an aircraft is unlikely to be from internal systems.
Be careful, Fast Richard, for you're treading on my dreams. ;)
Mythbusters did an excellent episode on this myth (blue ice falling from planes) and concluded that it is plausible if the valve is leaky. The ice forms at altitude and when the plane descends, the metal it forms on heats just enough to dislodge the formation.Besides, I'm pretty sure you can test the chunk of blue ice that fell to determine what it is. Perhaps the nose would be a good instrument for that?
It a kinetic urinary action.
Reminds me of every time I watch some large fascist pep rally of Hezbollah goons or Iranian Mahdi fetishists gathered I don't think 'OMG look how many people want to kill us' so much as I lament missed opportunities to test the lethal radius of various munitions.
Teehee! I can't help now but have fantasies where the Occupiers get all mad about the indignity that aerial bowel movements causes to the environment, and then Bono holds a rally which all the elite fly out to in their private business jets and then Sheryl Crow resolves to never pee again...It would be just like this, but instead of a spoiled little kid, we'd have spoiled rich entertainers:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iJkWqCkOV8
Fast Richard: any severe in-flight icing near that area on an aircraft will get coated with frozen sewage as well.
'Cause napalm sticks to hippies!
C'mon Og, I'm sure Tam's True Name is widely known by now, but let's not noise it about!At the very least, there would be the inevitable keelhauling jokes.
