Nope. It's more complicated than that.

OK, I cheated, but I have the answer.....

Heck, let's keep the mystery going.....the dead guy is a typical fisherman, however....

My guess was related to "why", not "how". If it is "how", I can only guess that it not a good idea to make wild gestures with your arms. Jim

It is certainly a good thing we do not use our arms when we claim fuel mileage...

LOL! You guys make me laugh.

cwf nailed it in the "Random Thoughts" thread.

Here's the cut and paste of his answer.....

-He was telling a friend over a telephone call how BIG a fish he had caught! -He broke the glass as he reached out his arms to demonstrate how big the fish was, this cut him.

Msmoto, LOL!

Having a pilot onboard might be a good thing, though. I recently asked my flying friend about fuel calculation on the Boeing. I can't remember it all exactly, but they have to calculate a myriad of scenarios in regards to destination, reserve, and diversionary fuel. It made my head spin!

Now I get it FaN. It was the fuel nozzle dude from the Gimli Glider trying to explain to the pilot the reading on the dipstick. Jim

Great. Must be due to your familiarity with the archetype considering the "view from your house". No sardines. Jim

Recent activity?

Hello to the Breakfast Club...at 8:44 AM. Just wondering who is reading after having returned from Motor City a few days ago....

Maybe a photo from "Open Hood Days" at The Henry Ford, Dearborn, Michigan. At least something to grab a piece of nostalgia, and start a discussion of the "good old days"....for some of the more chronologically more mature readers....LOL

I had a '61 VW Bus and lived in it in Yosemite. The accelerator cable broke and to replace it I had to get to the VW dealer in Merced, eighty miles of mountain roads.

I tied a piece of string to the carb, out the rear engine compartment, in the rear window, up to the front seat. Drove the entire eighty miles pulling the string to accelerate....

God, those were great days....
