Something to Talk About

I’m thinking, okay, these things have freaked me out lately so I figured I would share them with you guys. Yep, here goes:

Driving down the road. Driving. Driving. Look over in the lane next to me and what do I see? Dude riding a motorcycle and smoking a cigarette. Uh huh. Riding a motorcycle. Smoking a cigarette. Leisurely smoking a cigarette…as in slow drag, nonchalantly blow the smoke out of your mouth, hold the cigarette in one hand, ride the motorcycle. How cool is that? I don’t know…maybe it was just me but I was mesmerized. {**Disclaimer: The Surgeon General has said that cigarette smoking is hazardous to your health and the Bone in no way endorses sucking cancer sticks whether while riding motorcycles or not.}


Just recently, a training bomb fell off a fighter jet during a training exercise over Virginia Beach. The fake bomb hit an occupied warehouse type of building but it didn’t do any damage (other than denting the building) and no one was hurt.

Okay. So. This is what the Navy had to say about that. You see, apparently, since there wasn’t any real damage done, this doesn’t qualify as what they would consider to be an “Official Mishap”. Oh yeah. Really. I’m serious. This falls under the category of, “TFOA” which is also known as, and I am not kidding here, “things falling off aircraft”. You cannot be serious!!! We are supposed to be the mightiest military in the world and we have a category of military training faux pas’ entitled “things falling off aircraft”? How bizarre…read the sad proof here.
