Just Farking Around

Flying Blind Has A New Whole New Meaning!
I'm a private pilot and this feat just amazes me:
Pilot blinded by stroke is guided safely to ground

A British pilot who was suddenly blinded by a stroke during a solo flight was talked safely down by a military pilot, the Royal Air Force said Friday

Jim O'Neill asked for help after he was went blind 40 minutes into a flight from Scotland to southeastern England last week. The BBC reported that O'Neill, flying a small Cessna aircraft, lost his sight 5,500 feet in the air.
OK, that was the Cliff Notes version.

Here is the original BBC article with audio goodness:
Blind pilot guided to land by RAF
In aviation when we speak of 'flying blind' we mean that we are in clouds and relying on instruments to fly and to get somewhat close to landing where we can visually acquire the runway.

This guy actually became blind in the air and had an RAF pilot flying on his wing, who along with ATC, talked him down.

I'm amazed. I don't think I could have done any one of their jobs.

Well done my fellow aeronauts, well done RAF!

C'mon, you know you want to see that! (p.s. The comments are as good as the original site!)

If this was a separate post I'd title it Pink Floyd's Animals, but this is pure Fark:

But the man was quick to defend his relations with a bitch he bought online from a city-dwelling family who said they wanted the dog to have a better life in the countryside.

"Any of the times I did anything with her she was the one who backed into me and provoked it. She was in heat and made herself available. There were also times later when she didn't want to and then I backed out immediately," he told Expressen.[...]
Gosh, how gentlemanly of him, he backed out if ... ewwww!

It started with a young woman who went to have an abortion. The woman laid on a table and spread her legs. The lower half of her body was covered by a sheet.

"Then she started screaming bloody murder," Smith recalled. "All of a sudden, the doctor pulled a naked doll out from between her legs."

The doll, which was supposed to be a fetus, appeared to be wet. The doctor then threw the doll into a metal bucket.

At that point, Smith recalled, the clown took the doll out of the bucket and whipped it in the air, spraying the audience with the liquid that was on the doll.
