Too bad Tom's a fruit loop. Still had to hit play

Is it wrong that I was a Days of Thunder fan far more than I was of Top Gun?

Remember watching this as the in-flight movie from DFW to LAX, thinking it was an odd choice for in-flight!

It doesn't matter if Tom is a fruit loop. He's always made good movies.

Top Gun the gold standard when testing the sound quality of a home theater system. That, and the intro to Monday Night Football.

Unfortunately, due to budget cuts by the current administration, our air force is no longer the force for peace that it once was. We're burned out and scrounging for spare parts.

Top Gun is where's the connection?

6:16 Have you seen the movie? Air Force is the name of the Navy's flight school.

"Air Force is the name of the Navy's flight school."

The United States Air Force is a branch of the United States Armed Forces. The United States Navy is an entirely different branch of said United States Armed Forces.

A naval aviator (Top Gun movie) trains at Naval Air Stations. The movie "Top Gun" references Naval Air Station Miramar, in California, but the Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor Program, TOPGUN, is currently in Fallon, NV. None, never nor any part of the program references "Air Force."

I was talking about the movie not real life. Actually Air Force one is the name of the obamas airplanes.

6:16 here... yeah! What he said.

Random Army Aviator said...

You were talking about things of which you know nothing about. Air Force One is the designation of the (fixed wing) aircraft that is carrying the POTUS, whoever that may be at the time. Barry Sotoros' family doesn't own any fixed wing assets that I know of, at this time. Oh, and by the way, NOBODY IN THE MOVIE CALLED THE SCHOOL AIR FORCE, dingleberry. ( shouting definately implied)

Apologies To Merle said...

Dad attended flight school in the Army Air Corps but retired from The Air Force. When they get here and cut off our heads, it won't make shit for difference what you boys are chattering about.

And the Sotoros family will be silver wings in the distance.

You can be my wingman anytime

Poor guy has his movies mixed up... he's referring to less popular movie, Iron Eagle (Air Force brat that steals in an F16 to rescue his dad without a single lesson). There just movies guys. How does Obama seem to creep into every thread?

Was wondering what he was smoking

Air Force pilots are lame when compared to Navy pilots. You try landing on an aircraft carrier, at night, in rough seas.

My grandson learned to fly at the Air Force Academy while in the Navy.

Anonymous said...

Cadets do go to other branches' bases for specified training, but no one from other branches attends the Air Force Academy to learn to fly.

The majority of cadets that attend the Air Force Academy never fly. Probably around half of the Air Force's pilots come from the Academy, though.

Amazing how much interest there is in the Armed Forces while so many of us are at the same time so misinformed. Here's to the 1 percenters of today and all those who went before. (Hope they fry Hassan's ass soon and Bergdalh rots in the reality that led him to abandon his fellow Soldiers)

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
