    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    I have shown nothing but kindness to APL, and then he responded by being his usual dick self....always fucking around....never honest.

    I have taken offense as is my right.

    I agree it's like nailing a jelly to the wall sometimes but he's ok most of the time.

    The saddest part was about that woman thinking she could keep her baby safe by holding on the baby.
    One of my favorites for many reasons. It's loosely based on the United Airlines Flight 232 Sioux City crash. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...nes_Flight_232

    I've met Captain Al Haynes too. A hero of mine who passed a little over a year ago. Funny, friendly and proved himself to be truly cool in a very stressful situation.

    Agreed about the physics in the movie. How Jeff Bridges proved that fact to Rosie Perez's character was awesome.

    Something reporters often don't get, along with most Hollywood types, is that pilots are busy trying to save their own asses in such a situation. Flight 101 is Aviate, Navigate, Communicate AKA "Fly the fucking airplane". When reporters are mystified because "no distress signal was sent" it's not a mystery to a pilot; the pilots of the aircraft were too busy flying to talk on the radio. That is shown in the movie when Bridges moves to the boy's seat and the pilots in the cockpit are seen struggling with the aircraft. Overall, the flying aspect of "Fearless" was well done. Another movie, "Flight", was based on bullshit even though I liked the movie.

    Another one I see in the papers is "the pilot gave his own life to avoid hitting a school". No shit. Hitting a fucking school is certain death, no sane pilot wants that to happen. Of course he/she is going to try to miss it.

    I have no idea WTF he is talking about.

    My guess is PUI; posting under the influence. There was nothing wrong in your post.

    Dude, get a grip. He was talking about a movie. Specifically these two characters:


    Yes, as you probably are, Max (Jeff Bridges) is drunk. The woman lost her baby in the plane crash. It's a main plot point of the movie. How Max helps Carla (Rosie Perez) get over her guilt is unique, to say the least.
