At pearls gate ¤¤¤

A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who’s dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this guy, “Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?” The guy replies, “I’m Joey Shasta, retired pilot, of Pittsburg, PA.”

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, “Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.”

The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next it’s the minister’s turn. He stands erect and booms out, “I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary’s for the last 43 years.” Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the minister, “Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.”

“Just a minute,” says the minister. “That man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?”

“Up here, we work by results,” says Saint Peter. “While you preached, people slept; while he flew, people prayed.”

Hudson river landing animation with radio communication

Worth too see again !!

Clic on HQ for high quality  after start of videoclip

A great way telling the story with an animation- based on radiocommunication with the tower . Listen to the pilots short answers to suggestions of different alternatives to take down the aircraft  and the towers attempt to give a number of options to land  – he is concentrating on the only relistic alternative the Hudson river …..- a fantastic cool pilot he must be a trained  X-Combat Air Force pilot being that cool in an extremely difficult emergency landing situation. !  The video is most probably made by recording the screen   (eg Camtasia Studio or Debut ) with a  moving landscape from Google Earth. The embedded authentic airplane-model  is put into the video in a movie editing software probably video flash technology – Distributed free over You-tube- Internet is a fantastic resource finding and learning how to use high tech publishing resources-  A nice way telling the story with easy available technology! /Father Bens comments based on own video-experiences since many years following the practical spin-offs of the  high tech frontline .

More landings this time in rough weather …


THE OLD PILOT- a good laugh today also ? ¤¤¤

Ya think you have lived to be Old and know who you are, then along comes someone and changes it all….                                                 

An old Pilot sat down at the Starbucks and ordered a cup of coffee. 

As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him.. 

She turned to the pilot and asked, ’Are you a real pilot?’ 

He replied, ’Well, I’ve spent my whole life flying biplanes, Cubs, Aeronca’s, Neiuports, flew in WWII in a B-29, and later in the Korean conflict, taught 50 people to fly and gave rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot.’ 

She said, ’I’m a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.’ 

The two sat sipping in silence. 

A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked, ’Are you a real pilot?’ 

The old pilot replied, ’Well, I always thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.’
