  4. Everything is stupid, but not everybody. Saying everybody is stupid might violate our commenting guidelines, and isn’t true in any event because I am quite brilliant.

  5. Only 90% is stupid. Sturgeon’s Law.

  6. But if everything is stupid, then nothing can be stupid….because it’s indistinguishable….or so says the Incredibles.

  7. Thanks for rephrasing my langauge to “stupid”.

    High on my list of stupid decisions in a Russian Tanker retrospective was anyone who volunteered to serve in a T series T54 to T90 tank. There is a picture out there of a turret sitting on the second floor of someones home. The videos look like there is a geyser of molten lava exploding out of the tank where the turret used to be and where someone was sitting.
    An Iraq Ccombat veteran observed that the oily puddle in the bottom of the burned out tank was likely all that was left of any body parts that were not blown out of the tank

  8. This could be fun:

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott directs use of buses to drop off migrants at steps of Capitol in DC

    And by that I mean not fun. Unless everyone of those aliens is and remains a volunteer for the entire journey, Abbott and his accomplices will be guilty of kidnapping across state lines. Under the Lindbergh Law. And tried in DC.

  9. @9. Southern governor brings back busing.

    Film at 11. 😉

  10. American Airlines is busing people between airports

    But categorizing them as “flights.” (because of software limitations?) They will collect frequent flier miles

    – American Airlines passengers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey may find themselves on an unusual connecting “flight”—one that makes use of a bus instead of a plane. Airline Weekly reports that the airline has hired the Landline bus company to ferry passengers between Philadelphia International Airport and smaller airports: one near Allentown, Pennsylvania, and one in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The buses tooling down the highway will have the American logo and will be sold as “flights” to those onboard. The move comes amid a national pilot shortage and rising fuel prices that make even short flights expensive, notes Axios.

    Both companies say bus trips make more sense for relatively short hauls—the Allentown airport is 73 miles away from Philly, and the Atlantic City airport is 56 miles away. The move “solves a tricky dilemma for American Airlines in regions where airports are densely grouped,” per the Dallas Morning News. And yes, bus passengers will still earn loyalty miles for the trips, which will begin in June. Landline has similar deals with United Airlines in Denver and Sun Country Airlines in Minnesota and Wisconsin, per the AP.
