Stomachs of Steel

THIS was sent to me by TGOO today. Honestly, I don't know how the pilot types do it... just watching the video made my inner ear all wonky and made me want to barf.

Rumor has it I may end up working in September, but on an aircraft I've not touched in 17 years. Could be interesting...

I don't want to barf... just get very dizzy. I could never do loopy stuff, I'd fall out of the sky. heh.

I've always been ok with rollercoasters, but I don't do spin. But watching that guy... yeah, not for me. I'd have run out of barf bags and moved onto my gloves and boots.

I used to be ok with most rides, until the time we went to a carnival where the diesel generator was too close to the rides and wafting fumes to go along with the spinning and whirling.

I haven't been able to deal with twirly rides since.

Love the maneuvers at 1:30 and 2:40...

Bou: Remember how I told you I had a queasy feeling about going to Seattle on the ferry on the 5th of July? Check this out: http://michellemalkin.com/2007/08/21/attention-john-does-have-you-seen-these-men/#comments

I hate it when I get premonitions.
