Yes -- Happy Birthday To Me

Well -- those words from my wife were very touching. I very much appreciate her, and am truly the luckiest man alive to have such a wonderful wife.

I have many great blog posts in the works with really fun titles like "Why Does the Bird Hate Me?" and "Puffy Paint Shirts 4 Sale!" oh they are really great masterpieces that you will all enjoy I'm sure. For now though I cannot resist to remind everyone how fortunate we are that the discount airlines in the United States have not gone quite as far as discount airlines in China.

Here we have an airplane that for whatever reason was immobile under its own power after landing. Now this was just the other day, not last year, or some sort of staged event. This actually happened. The airport employees (evidently) had no way to move the airplane so they decided to push it.

At some point the employees realized they were unable to push the 20 ton airplane alone, so they got all the passengers to help. Here is the photo

Afterwards one of the employees actually remarked "Thank God this was only a 20 ton airplane, and we only had to push it a half a mile, otherwise it would have knocked us out." Well one thing is for sure the Chinese are certainly problem solvers.

Have a great day!!
