    THERE IS A MORAL HERE!

    A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
    The jet jockey decided to show off.






    The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, "watch this!" and promptly
    went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished
    with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier. The F-16 pilot
    asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?




    The C-130 pilot said, "That was impressive, but watch this!"

    The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130
    pilot came back on and said: "What did you think of that?"

    Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, "What the hell did you do?"

    The C-130 pilot chuckled. "I stood up, stretched my legs, walked
    to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of coffee and a
    cinnamon bun."


    When you are young & foolish - speed & flash may seem a good thing !!!
    When you get older & smarter - comfort & dull is not such a bad thing !!!

    Us old folks understand this one!

    HAHAHAHA!!! That's a good one - thanks. I've flown fast (over Mach 1) and slow (in the Herc) and found that you see and get to enjoy a lot more of the world when it slowly goes by your window. Of course...I also fly the Citation X now - and when you really need to get across the country - nothing beats moving at .92 Mach (about 650 mph).

    It won't bother me at all. I can't remember where it came from.
