The United States government spends large amounts of money on free television broadcasts to strategically sway mass populations toward their political agenda. (Of course they would never do that to their own people, only to propagandize those poor communists.)
I agree with you.
Actually yes, colloquialism does violate the standards of English Grammar.
FAA English is jargon, and it is also non-standard.
"And it's low and slow and dangerous" is slang, and I realize that it's not proper.
The arbiter is not specific, but it is polite, and shows class, to put the other person's name before the self. Putting the self first is basically classless, or selfish. It's no more a law than whether or not it is right or wrong to eat dogs. Generally, we English speakers would think that eating dogs is wrong, universally. So when someone chooses Bowser over beef, we say that's wrong, and that's that.
I'm making myself look like a jerkoff (slang), and I really was only slightly irritated that so many people were jumping on Jeff Carey, that was poking fun at John Hale for being so brackish. All of a sudden there's a whole bunch of people (happens every time) that want to crucify the guy that likes to use proper grammar, and makes it known that lazy
Personally I wouldn't have corrected him, but someone did, and you felt that you needed to to one-up him. So I'm doing my civic duty by pointing out that "me and him" would not be proper English "down there" or any other place on planet Earth. It may be common and/or accepted where you live, but it's wrong. "He and I" is THE proper way, not A proper way. The correction is also a subtle dig at the validity of John Hale's statement.
This whole tit-for-tat is a parody of the video and ensuing comments. Maybe in Germany this flying is "proper". Maybe in the military it's proper. Maybe in skydiving it's proper. Personally I think it's safe; he was close to the trees (low), but still fast. He bled off speed over the runway. He was obviously fast enough to make a safe landing if both engines failed. Now if he was dragging it in over those trees behind the power curve and trying to make a short field landing, that would be dangerous, and pointless. There's nothing wrong with being low and fa
The thing is, the guy probably said he was working on the arresting gear on a plane, but he was probably hitching a ride to the support plane to get a bolt or a wrench or something. Through the cop and the media, I'm surprised they don't have him working on the "water wings".
Anyway, the uniforms they wear are credentials enough for me. So his car didnt have the proper credentials? Eat shit.
