    Well that's totally different! You see I support these types of activities at home not in public. Well not in public if I am not there. If I am there, then it's home and so I support it. Because Home is where the Heart (on) is. So if I am there it's home and I support it even if it's in public, but only if I am there, or a webcam is in operation...then and only then!! Or a video camera, or still camera...But NEVER at Dusk!!

    Could this version of Barbie the doll be of interest for you in this case? It supports the "outside vs. at home" distinction you advocate! Is that what you mean? They don't mention webcams though, so I am not really sure I got you right...

    Disagree completely with this way of thinking!! A woman should wear what she wants, when she wants. Her style should not be dictated by religious leaders or other people of authority. This, of course, is NOT true in the case of my daughters, who must, do, and will, dress with decorum and a puritanical sense of style neither revealing that they, like their mother, are women, nor that they are, again like their mother, beautiful beyond description.

    That may be the best runon sentence I have ever written! Alli B. is probably walking around right now with this vague sense that something, somewhere, has gone really really wrong!

    Personally, I am not interested in "grass", but maybe cows are different? However that may be, they are not allowed to eat it any more...

    It was quite a controversial decision, so maybe it would have been good to ask the cows what they think?

    One Man - One Plane - One World: sounds a bit like a cross between jpahl's round the world sailing competion and the puzzle about flying over the south pole without landing - only this time, it is real and there is no refuelling:

    Steve Fosset's solo round the world non-stop flight.

    It looks good for him so far. Fossett is best know in Switzerland for trying to be the first to circle earth non-stop in a baloon, even before the Swiss Bertand Piccard. He failed, Piccard made it before him. After Piccard's flight (together with a Brit, actually ), Fossett did it again, the first solo trip in a balloon.

    The plane seems to be a fuel tank with wings and a tiny cockpit:

    It's an amazing design from the fertile mind of Burt Rutan, the designer of Spaceship One and a host of other remarkable air/space designs.

    Many in the aviation world begrudge Fosset his many world records as some feel as if he "bought" them. I think it's sour grapes because many of those who complain the loudest would, given Fosset's money, do the same thing.

    I'll say one thing for Fosset....he's got brass ones for doing some of this stuff.

    Something tells me that he won't be passing any drug tests when he (hopefully) arrives back in Kansas.

    Pictures? What pictures? Who owes pictures around here? Chicken Droppings is the only one who owes pictures and she keeps posting naked penguin pictures.

    still waiting for those photos
    Do the rules say that he is not allowed to sleep? How would anybody make sure he doesn't??

    In fact, I wonder what the problem is, after all, he does have an autopilot, so what's the big deal once you are on the way (apart from landing, which aparently the plane does only very reluctantly, they have to use parachutes to slow it down)?

    All pictures were posted as promised. Not my fault if the South Pole expedition only revealed penguins.

    Also sorry if anybody felt offended by the naked penguins. We have them naked in our zoos, so I thought it was not that bad!

    probably a safety precaution..
    If he sleeps he can't see where he is going.. and the auto pilot doesnt care.

    It seems he cannot sleep long because the plane is too unstable. But he does have an autopilot, so it is not quite the same as e.g. for Lindbergh. Plus, modern day medication can do wonders about not sleeping (in case that is what ACD insinuated...).

    There is no such thing as a forced landing....if you wait long enough they will all come down eventually. We've never left one up there yet.

    Most modern FMS (Flight Management Systems) don't need the pilot to do anything but monitor the position. A two hour nap would be no problem except for the radio calls....something the chase plane could do for him while he slept. But it makes a lot better press if he stays awake vs. taking a couple of Ludes and sleeping the trip away.

    If the plane is truely unstable then an autopilot can fly it better then he can. Some aircraft (fighters) are only flyable if the fly-by-wire system (sort of an autopilot system) is functional.

    Speaking of unstable where is Chicky-Poo?

The captain spent most of the time pointing out to me sights of interest (which given it was gatwick were mostly new car parks)

    Of course if the nob had fallen off presumably he'd have had to do a lot more work

    You are correct as always jpahl. You don't have a lot to do other then twiddle knobs as long as things are going okay...it's when the fit hits the shan that you earn your money.

    Someone once said that flying an aircraft is 95% boredom followed by 5% sheer panic. I, for one, live for the panic part.

    In addition, while flying at an altitude of 45,000ft (14km), he would probably have difficulties to find something to fly into, so also the poor vision while sleeping would not be a problem.

    I think the award should go to the designer and to the autopilot in this case!

    That's what I meant by some people saying he is buying the records. They argue he pays someone (Rutan) to build as safe a "system" as possible and he/Fosset rides along and gets the record.

    In his defense if he ran into to turbulance with that thing it would tear itself into little pieces very quickly...so, yes he bought it, but also yes, he has big brass ones to take the ride.

    ... and hopefully also a parachute in case his plane disintegrates.

    Jokes aside, I guess he is the one who got the whole thing going, organised it, and he takes the risk of dieing in a crash (specially during take-off and landing). So he deserves the fame, even if the lack of sleep is mainly for PRPRPR $reasons$!
