A few gems from Air Traffic Control - sent by George W


Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles."
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"


"TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 degrees."
"Center, we are at 35,000 feet . How much noise can we make up here?"
"Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"


O'Hare Approach Control to a 747:
"United 329 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, one o'clock , three miles, Eastbound."
United 239: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this...I've got the little Fokker in sight."


A DC-10 had come in a little fast and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down.
San Jose Tower noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able.
If you are not able, take the Guadalupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport."


A Pan Am 727 flight waiting for start clearance in Munich overheard the following:
Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?"
Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English.
Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?"
Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war."


One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed.
The DC-8 landed, rolled out turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee.
Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, "What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"
The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts.
Another landing like yours and I'll have enough parts for another one."


While taxiing at London's Gatwick Airport, the crew of a USAir flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727.
An irate female ATC ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming:
"US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"

Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically:
"God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to!
You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"

"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.

Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind.

Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high.

Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking, "Wasn't I married to you once?"

MAN STUCK IN MUD - Sent by George W.

You can always appreciate someone who is good at their job. 
Not sure what country they are located in. Speaking a foreign language (Russian)? 

The stuck guy in the blue jacket has a lot of faith in the shovel operator and the shovel operator is obviously VERY GOOD at operating this machinery!! 

Never saw anything like this before.
That backhoe operator is an "artiste"

Do "Naked man hanging" flowers really exist?

Circulating message claims that attached images show the 'Naked Man' orchid, which has flowers that resemble tiny - and clearly male - figures.

The photographs are genuine. Many commentators have suggested that the images have been digitally manipulated and do not show a real plant. However, Orchis italica, aka the Naked Man orchid is certainly real and grows in various locations in the Mediterranean.

These rather amusing images circulate online and via email. According to the message that travels with the images, they depict the 'Naked Man' orchid. The orchid's flowers are shaped like tiny human figures, complete with male appendages of varying sizes.

Predictably, a number of self-proclaimed experts have declared the images to be 'photoshopped' and claimed that there are no such flowers.

However, the plants are in fact quite real. Orchis italica, more commonly called the Naked Man Orchid or the Italian Orchid, grows in various locations throughout the Mediterranean.

A write-up about the plant on First-Nature.com notes:
The Naked Man Orchid (which on close inspection resembles just that!) can grow up to 50 cm in height and is widespread throughout the Mediterranean often forming dense colonies.

And, an article about the orchid on the Wild Nature Spain blog explains:
The Orchis italica is known in English as the naked man orchid, due to the form of the individual flowers which resemble a naked male form. The spike is very densely packed with flowers of a purple-pink-whitish colour. The petals and sepals are all curved upwards forming a kind of helmet covering the column. The lip is long and has the shape of a man, with arms, legs and a third protuberance.

Of course, it is only our human propensity to give deeper meaning to natural shapes and patterns that make these particular flowers so striking to us. Other plant species have garnered similar reactions and have generated their own Internet memes. Nevertheless, such plants are beautiful and wondrous in their own right and need no human embellishments.


Our friend George W' s warning!!!
The flower is called Hanging Naked Men, so do not Google "Hanging Naked Men" or you might see really Naked Men!!!

Einstein: bomba de amor - Envío de Carmina


"Cuando propuse la teoría de la relatividad, muy pocos me entendieron, y lo que te revelaré ahora para que lo transmitas a la humanidad también chocará con la incomprensión y los perjuicios del mundo.

Te pido aun así, que la custodies todo el tiempo que sea necesario, años, décadas, hasta que la sociedad haya avanzado lo suficiente para acoger lo que te explico a continuación.

Hay una fuerza extremadamente poderosa para la que hasta ahora la ciencia no ha encontrado una explicación formal. Es una fuerza que incluye y gobierna a todas las otras, y que incluso está detrás de cualquier fenómeno que opera en el universo y aún no haya sido identificado por nosotros. Esta fuerza universal es el AMOR.

Cuando los científicos buscaban una teoría unificada del universo olvidaron la más invisible y poderosa de las fuerzas.

El Amor es Luz, dado que ilumina a quien lo da y lo recibe. El Amor es gravedad, porque hace que unas personas se sientan atraídas por otras. El Amor es potencia, porque multiplica lo mejor que tenemos, y permite que la humanidad no se extinga en su ciego egoísmo. El amor revela y desvela. Por amor se vive y se muere. El Amor es Dios, y Dios es Amor.

Esta fuerza lo explica todo y da sentido en mayúsculas a la vida. Ésta es la variable que hemos obviado durante demasiado tiempo, tal vez porque el amor nos da miedo, ya que es la única energía del universo que el ser humano no ha aprendido a manejar a su antojo.

Para dar visibilidad al amor, he hecho una simple sustitución en mi ecuación más célebre. Si en lugar de E= mc2 aceptamos que la energía para sanar el mundo puede obtenerse a través del amor multiplicado por la velocidad de la luz al cuadrado, llegaremos a la conclusión de que el amor es la fuerza más poderosa que existe, porque no tiene límites.

Tras el fracaso de la humanidad en el uso y control de las otras fuerzas del universo, que se han vuelto contra nosotros, es urgente que nos alimentemos de otra clase de energía. Si queremos que nuestra especie sobreviva, si nos proponemos encontrar un sentido a la vida, si queremos salvar el mundo y cada ser sintiente que en él habita, el amor es la única y la última respuesta.

Quizás aún no estemos preparados para fabricar una bomba de amor, un artefacto lo bastante potente para destruir todo el odio, el egoísmo y la avaricia que asolan el planeta. Sin embargo, cada individuo lleva en su interior un pequeño pero poderoso generador de amor cuya energía espera ser liberada.

Cuando aprendamos a dar y recibir esta energía universal, querida Lieserl, comprobaremos que el amor todo lo vence, todo lo trasciende y todo lo puede, porque el amor es la quinta esencia de la vida.

Lamento profundamente no haberte sabido expresar lo que alberga mi corazón, que ha latido silenciosamente por ti toda mi vida. Tal vez sea demasiado tarde para pedir perdón, pero como el tiempo es relativo, necesito decirte que te quiero y que gracias a ti he llegado a la última respuesta!".

Tu padre:
