“You Are Quietly Passionate”
You are a loner, and you’re fine with that. You find the most fulfillment in solitude. And you never feel more lonely than when you’re in a crowd.
You fall in love with ease and confidence. Even if you’ve had bad experiences in the past, each new love is a reason to start completely over.
You are a deep and contemplative person. You are as passionate as everyone else, but your passion is not always apparent.
Your sense of humor is very physical. Your facial expressions or spot on imitations of people are hilarious.
Kinda scary how close to home this one hits!
Quantas Mechanics and Pilots
The claim is made that after every flight, QANTAS pilots fill out a form, known as a ‘gripe sheet’ to tell mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics fix the problem, and then document their repairs on the form.
The following are maintenance problems submitted by the pilots (marked with a ‘P’) and the solutions recorded (marked by an ‘S’) by maintenance engineers, who by the way have a sense of humor:
P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.
S: Left inside main tyre almost replaced.
P: Test flight OK, auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.
P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back order.
P: Auto pilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
S: Can’t reproduce problem on the ground.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That’s what friction locks are for.
P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.
P: Suspect crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you’re right.
P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.
P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed in cockpit.
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.
These always make me laugh out loud! If they’re not true, they ought to be!
Have a terrific weekend!
You are able to stand back and really appreciate the ebb and flow of life. You find peace even in troubled times.
You know that all bad things eventually pass, and you have a broad perspective that others yearn for.
You focus on the present as much as possible. You aren’t weighed down by thoughts of the past or future.
You seek balance, and with that balance comes bliss. You have found your happy place, and you’re content to stay there a while.
This is one of the results from the quiz, The Sand and Surf Test
I use to have a little printed “poster” on my wall that I made, that said, “This too shall pass.”
I think “happy place” might be overdoing it but I have learned to be content. For the time being. 😉
