|Think For A Moment….
A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call as soon as possible, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled, “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”
The doctor smiled and said, “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.”
“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily
The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace.”
“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy,” murmured the father.
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy.
“Thank goodness! Your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”
“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”
This is really interesting, did you ever think why a certain food is the shape that it is? Hope you enjoy it.
EAT LOTS OF SWEET POTATOES It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish… All before making a human. He made and provided what we’d need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw. We’re such slow learners…
God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body! God’s Pharmacy! Amazing!
A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
You may have seen this one. one well trained and cool
pilot……….reminds me of the STARS program I used to read behind the
dark curtain in the computer room. runway film similar to this . a lot
easier to read than this one. of course there was no audio. just me
clicking on the runway lights for normal landings.
Here’s the F-16 dead stick into Elizabeth City, NC: A fairly short RWY for
jets, (about 6,000 ft long), but qualifies for an "Emergency landing field"
in the grand scheme of US aviation.
You’ll probably have to watch the video several times to appreciate how
intense the situation and how busy the pilot was all the way to stopping on
the runway. Very apparently, the pilot was one-of-four F-16s in a flight
returning to their base, (most probably from the Navy Dare bombing range
south of Manteo), and the F-16 in question had already reported a
"Ruff-Running Engine" to his flight leader before the start of the video.
A few comments not readily apparent are:
-The whole episode, from start-to-finish only takes about 3 1/2 minutes!
– The video begins as the flight is being followed on radar. The flight
leader asks for the Elizabeth City tower UHF freq which is repeated as
355.6 and the entire flight switches to that freq: Just one-more-task for
the pilot to execute in the cockpit as he reports that his engine has QUIT.
He has to activate the Emergency Unit (EPU) to maintain electric and
hydraulic power. This unit is powered by Hydrazine: (the caustic fuel that
Germany created in WW II to power their V-2 Rockets and their ME-163 rocket
fighters among others.) Thus, the last call about requesting fire support
after the jet is safe on deck, and pilot breathing easy.
– Meanwhile, back in the cockpit, the pilot is busily attempting to
"Re-light" his engine: (Unsuccessfully, of course) while tending to
– The video is taken using the Head-Up-Display (HUD) camera which also has a
– The HUD is a very busy instrument, but among things to notice are the
‘circle’ in the middle which represents the nose of the aircraft and where
it is ‘pointed’: "The velocity Vector".
– The flight leader reports they are 7-miles out from the airport and at
9,000 ft altitude. Since the weather is clear and the airport is in sight,
this allows for adequate "Gliding distance" to reach a runway with the
engine OFF. Rest assured, jet fighters glide sorta like a rock. They don’t
enjoy the higher lift design of an airliner like that which allowed
Sullenburger to land in the NY river.
– Coming down 9,000 ft in only 7-miles requires a helluva rate of descent,
so the pilot’s nose remains well below the "Horizon" until just prior to
touching down on the runway. The HUD horizon is a solid, lateral bar, and
below the horizon, the horizontal lines appear as dashes. You’ll see a "10"
on the second dashed line below the horizon which = 10-degrees nose low.
– Radio chatter includes the flight leader calling the tower and the tower
stating runway 10 with wind 070@5MPH + altimeter setting of 30.13: yet
another step for the pilot to consider.
– The flight leader calls for the pilot to jettison his external fuel tanks
and asks another pilot in the flight to "Mark" where they dropped.. The
tower later tells the pilot to land on any rwy he chooses.
– Pilot reports "Three in the green" indicating all three gear indicate down
and locked which the fligh t leader acknowledges.
– You will hear the computer voice of "Bitchin’-Betty" calling out
"Warnings". More confusing chatter when none is welcome or even necessary.
(That’s "Hi-Tech" for ya.)
– The pilot has only ONE CHANCE to get this right and must also slow to an
acceptable landing speed in order to stop on the short runway.
You’ll see Black rubber on the rwy where "The rubber meets the road" in the
touchdown area. Note that during rollout, he gets all the way to the far
end which you can see by all the black skid marks where planes have landed
heading in the opposite direction.
OK: That’s more than you probably wanted to know, but you have to appreciate
the fine job this guy did in calmly managing this emergency situation. He
is a "USAF Reserve" pilot and those guys generally have plenty of
experience. That really pays off.
The pilot just saved about $20+m at his own risk…….Great job!
Note the breathing rate on the hot mic.
See if you can keep all of the radio transmissions straight.
Probably the coolest sounding voice in the whole mix is the pilot of the
engine out aircraft.

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.
Well, for example, the other day, Marilyn my wife and I went downtown and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, ‘Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?’
He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an asshole . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So Marilyn called him a shit head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first.
Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.
We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired.
It’s important at our age.
