March: Roaring Lions or Peaceful Lambs?

March is here and along with it comes the first month of severe season and it’s roaring in with threat of severe weather on day 1.



According to the 3 month outlook, winter is pretty much over and precipitation looks to be about average over most of the country.






Take your pick, but I'm betting on the one with the big teeth and the bad attitude.

    Good Morning Cone,

    I don't worry about KKKiddd too too much. I have gathered from some of his stories that he has already had plenty of life experiences with (and survived) many things that could accurately be described as "gorgeous and deadly". Not necessarily members of the opposite sex either. A Lear Jet could be considered 'beautiful and deadly'.

    He is after all permanently exempted from all SS/BS protocols. hmmmm, (Syntax check here please...) Should I use the words "permanently exempted" or would it be more proper to use the words "Terminally exempted"?

    You have achieved the defecation correctly , my friend. (Redneck translation: "You got that s*** right!"

    Did James Bond wear a seat belt? (I do wear one relegiously mainly out of force of habit, almost 50 years of driving and I have never needed it yet, but all it takes is Juan time. I know lots of people that can't stand wearing them. Some States have a "click it or ticket" law. I think that safety should not be legislated. If people want to risk their lives, it's their choice. They should legislate continued training for people who cause accidents! Seriously though, there are no seatbelts on motorcycles and yes, some places make you wear a helmet. But unsafe MC operators have a way of thinning themsleves out of the herd, so it is a self resolving problem.)
    But I digress, and Juan has to occasionally, just to be able to say all that needs said while the subject matter still lingers in the thought process, something that age has a way of snatching away at the most inopportune moments.

    I believe in safety.

    I just don't believe in OVER safety.
    I worked on a CNC in a place where they were loading high explosives into the nose of a flying weapon. (government contractor) They asked me to do what I thought was silly things, like wearing bags on my shoes. With the known danger all around me, I did not argue. I slipped occasionally, but nobody laughed. But I maintained the safety protocol of the area I was in. Other than at that place, I never have and never will wear bags on my shoes!

    See, I KNOW how to be safe for each circumstance that I will experience. Some things you just can't prepare for, so what? Are you gonna wear a hard hat your whole life?

    A Lear jet IS a sexy and dangerous thing. It is not merciful or forgiving to careless and unskilled pilots. I have never logged time as pilot in any Lear, I have a bit in A Citation, a Falcon and a Saberliner, all right seat. But no Lear time. I have heard the newer Juans are easier to fly, but I don't care anymore. I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane many a time, but please note: The airplane was not flying when I did it. It goes against my entire being to do such a thing while the airplane is flying. I am not saying I have never done it, but I will never do such a thing on purpose (again).

    Even I have limits.

    Some mamby pamby whimps think everything is dangerous and they shudder whenever some Juan takes a risk they would not take, and so they plead and they urge you not to do whatever it is you are going to do! But you do it anyway and come back in Juan piece. Do they change their mind and decide that such a thing is a safe and acceptable enterprise for them to take up? Heck no! But they know you will do it again and again and they worry for you (without justification) and yet they still tell you to take precautions to avoid injury. It is as if you are leaving to go to the Antarctic and as you start to go, they say: "It's cold there, don't forget to wear a jacket!"

    "Duh!"

    The other factor to consider is Juan that I only recently have come to terms with: I am getting old.
    With old age comes a certain deficiency of tolerance toward inane and useless banter, noise and other things that may have irritated you when you were young, and you ignored it or put up with it. But now, these things become more and more annoying. Yet, if someone calls you a "crochety old fart!" you are not as offended as you thought you would be.
    People don't understand.
    When you are ignoring some Juan's inane drivel, they think you are going deaf and speak louder! This adds to the offense and then they are surprised when you explode at them in a stern verbal affront. They may now assume the rumors of you being a crochety old fart have been proven true and will go their merry way with a changed mind. It's a win - win situation. They believe what they want to believe and the chances of them pestering me has gone down to a comfortable level.

    The word terminally carries with it the connotation of an ending of sorts. The terminally ill are ill for a limited time and the meaning is given that the person will die from the illness. So, Terminally exempt could mean I am exempt until I die from being exempt, which is a kind way of saying my exemption from SS BS protocols will eventually lead to my demise. However, after my demise, my exemption still stays in force, whereas the "Terminal" usage indicates that the exemption will expire when I do. But we all know that only the living are Juans needing safety, so the "Permanent exemption" term is far more accurate.

    So did James Bond wear a seat belt?

    Nope!

    James Bond is a fictional character.

    Fictional characters are also exempt from SS BS protocols.

    At this point of the evening I think I understand that Juan should not jump out of a plane with a seatbelt still attached and why the 3 bales of hay showed up in my driveway

    Having your Aston Martin equipped with seat belts would render the passenger ejection seat less than fully operative.

    Ejection seats are not to be trifled with. I have seen the results of ejections gone bad and let me tell you it's not pretty. Among others, I saw an Air Force Airman eject himself from an F-100 into the roof of a hanger Juance among other things. Left a real nice stain on the roof. Apparently he was the only Airman in his unit totally exempt from all STAY SAFE/BE SAFE protocols. He was only out of tech school for 6 weeks when that happened. Two weeks prior to his demise he managed to squeeze off 80 20mm rounds (all that was currently in the magazines at the time) from the cannons on another F-100 while it was parked in the same hanger. He was pretty nonchalant about the whole thing afterwards and couldn't understand why he was dressed down pretty severely by the NCOs. Of course the squadron clerk who had all of the 20mm rounds pass 1 1/2 feet in front of his face while he was typing away in the office attached to the hangar wasn't nonchalant about the affair. Fortunately the only casualty at that time was the clerks underwear. The rounds passed through the walls of the hanger and expended themselves in an empty field about 3,000 yards down range.

    Juan could say he was terminally exempt I guess.

    But like you I have degressed. Back to the Aston Martin thing. Even with seat belts the ejection seat would still most likely end in the demise of the selected passenger, but there would be a greater likelihood of having some of the mess staying in the vehicle and having a messy Aston Martin would inhibit the spy from attracted another female.

    We all know that females attracted to spies are also terminally exempt from STAY SAFE/BE SAFE protocols and none of them even realized it until it was too late. Ask any of the countless chicks who didn't survive the the Bond movies.

    At least you and I elected to take our exempt status with our own free will and it was not forced upon us.

    We have that going for us.
