Spoofing the ignorant and gullible media provides great humor in the aviation world. One can only wonder what else the media have no clue about. Here's the latest example.

    All you need is a replicator and you can make as many as you want, as long as you have lots of dilithium. Getting them to work right is another problem.

    "Flux capacitator [sic]"

    One can only hope that she sees this and does a little bit better next time in pronouncing her electronic parts - fictitious or otherwise. If you're going to report the news, make sure you know what you are talking about.

      THAT would certainly be a new tack on the situation (a reporter knowing WHAT they were talking about).

        You mean as opposed to editorializing everything? ;)

        Yes, there is a difference between a journalist and a talk show host yet only the talk show hosts seem to understand this.

          I was just appalled at a comment made by a "news" host today on NPR that flatly said that Trump made false statements. Not "that some thought they were false," or that the statements have been questioned, or anything like that, but a flat statement that he lied.

          Now I know you probably wonder why I was even listening to NPR (sometimes I wonder that too,) but just like I used to read the union newspapers, back when that was a concern for me, you HAVE to keep your eye out and your ears open to see what the opposition is up to.

          Otherwise...you won't know. But it can sure be hard to listen to at times.

      How many reporters have we seen talking guns and gun control while showing a pump shotgun and calling it an AR 15 Assault rifle. I corrected a news reporter once telling him any rifle used in an assault could be labeled an Assault Rifle and AR 15 has nothing to do with Assault.Rifle. He got real snippy and said so why did they name it AR (Assault Rifle) to begin with if you are such a gun expert? I said probably because AR stands for the company that designed the "Armalite Rifle".

    Flux capacitors are widely used in the manufacture of plastic drinking straws!
    In hupersons the flux causes racist outbrakes.
    There is a Chinese/Zionist/Trumpist plot to control global beer production with flux capacitors.

    When back in stock, you can buy them here:

    When mine arrives I will build it on to my mobility scooter, heh heh.
