Just so we’re all clear here…

I am not quite sure why I decided to write this…
Actually, I know exactly why: I was browsing air fares between North America and Japan, and found the cheapest fair had a stop-over in South Korea. The interesting thing was one leg of the flight is on a Boeing 747…
I’ve only once ever flown on a 747, and that was a half-hour flight where I was the only passenger. I’ve never taken a “real” flight on one. That got me to thinking “what are all the other aircraft types upon which I have flown?”
Hence this list…
- Airbus A320 (ACA)
- Boeing 737 (CPC, CDN, PWA, SWA)
- Boeing 747 (ACA)
- Boeing 767 (ACA)
- Boeing 777-300 (JAL)
- Canadair Regional Jet 900 (DL)
- Canadair Regional Jet 700 (DL)
- De Havilland Canada Dash 7 (TAF)
- Douglas DC-10 (CPC)
I’m sure I’m missing some.
So, today at my local Starbucks, I ran into Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He’s only about an inch taller than me. I thought he would be bigger.
About a year-and-a-half ago, I wrote this very short entry, which said (in its entirety):
My car is one year and ten days old today, and I just rolled over to 10,000 km. That’s 6000 miles for the metric-impaired. I think I’ll buy her a drink. She looks thirsty.
Today I found the following comment in the moderation queue:
Easily, the post is actually the best on this deserving topic. I harmonize with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your forthcoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be adequate, for the extraordinary lucidity in your writing. I will right away grab your rss feed to stay privy of any updates. Fabulous work and much success in your business efforts!
Now let’s see…
- The comment is longer than the entry itself.
- It did not contain any links to questionable web sites.
Either someone is being sarcastic, or I have been hit by the world’s worst comment spammer.
