(Too bad Wendt isn't around for this, but Rancid will like it)

A Boeing 777 wide body jetliner was lumbering along at 800km/hour at
33000 feet when a cocky F-16 fighter jet flashed by at mach 1.5


The F16 pilot decided to show off. On his state of the art radio that
is part of his state of the art 3 D & million dollar headset the F16
youngster told the 777 pilot, “Hey Captain Watch this!”

He promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep unimaginable
vertical climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the
sound barrier as the F16 screamed down at impossible G’s before
levelling at almost sea level ...

The F-16 pilot asked the 777 pilot what he thought of that?

The 777 pilot said, “That was truly impressive, but watch this!”

The 777 chugged along for about 5 minutes at the steady 800km/hour
and then the 777 pilot came back on and said, “What did you think of
that?”

Puzzled, the cocky F-16 pilot asked, “What the heck did you do?”

The 777 pilot chuckled and said,

"I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, used the toilet,
then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll and secured a date for
the next 3 nights in a five star hotel paid for by the company"

Lesson of life:

When you are young & foolish - speed & flash may seem like a good thing!

When you get older & smarter - comfort & dullness is not such a bad
thing! It's called S.O.S. -

Slower, Older and Smarter!

Thanks, Colston. That's a classic. The first time I heard it, the aircraft were an F-100 and a B707.
