There were probably more because gear-up landings arent always reportedthey almost never cause enough damage to meet the NTSB definition of a reportable accident. Although most of Aerotreks airplanes sell for about eight grand more than that, theyre still on the low end of the price spectrum.January 18, 2016 When we looked at the 100 most recent accidents for the Archer/Cherokee 180 series—50 for each model—we saw some crunch causes we expected and a few we didn’t. By our lights, a ,000 airplane is by no means cheap, but if it costs barely half of its highest price competition, could there be some exceptional value there?Was there someone out there theoretically better suited to him than Edith? “Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might have found more suitable mates.”Tolkien blamed our “soul mates” obsession on the Romantic chivalric tradition: “Its weakness is, of course, that it began as an artificial courtly game, a way of enjoying love for its own sake. He lets me sit there and drink coffee in the morning while he bustles around.
Zeus, seeking to humble humans, split us in half, forcing us to wander in search of our other half: “So ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted in us, reuniting our original nature, making one of two, and healing the state of man.”While romantic, this has done an awful lot of damage — creating impossible-to-meet expectations, making people think that a happy, healthy relationship isn’t good enough, tricking people into holding out for “the one.”I’ve experienced that feeling of love at first sight that signifies encountering one’s soulmate.
It was magical, and then, quite quickly, dissolved by the sobering light of day, by the pressures of real life. It took time for many of even the most loving couples to feel like kindred spirits.
We found that unless the airplane is stripped to minimum weight and flown by an expert, the 200-foot takeoff distance number is a figment of someone’s imagination, especially when November 20, 2014 In our review of the 100 most recent Cessna 310 NTSB accident reports, landing gear problems led the list.
There were 25 reported gear-related events, 20 of which were collapses.
Over the last couple of weeks, some news stories were brought to my attention that illustrate a problem I’ve been observing for a few years now.
The first was the latest in a long line of Photoshopping scandals.To many men, the lean-yet-jacked look has become de rigueur – the In what seems like a sick parody of gender equity, men hear more and more about fitness “success” stories from other men.Hugh Jackman tweets his workouts to get into superheroic shape with “fitspo” slogans like “if the bar ain’t bending, you ain’t lifting.” Chris Pratt – having gone from chubby schlub to wash-board-ab-bedecked guardian of the galaxy – gets asked over and over about how he achieved his transformation.If that man was my soul mate, soul mates are overrated. Tolkien, who was married to his wife, Edith, from her teens until her death at age 82. It takes, or at any rate has in the past taken, the young man’s eye off women as they are” — that is, “companions in shipwreck not guiding stars.”I love that: companions in shipwreck. It wasn’t something that happened in the first hour, or even in the first year.My favorite writer on the subject of the soul mates is J. He acknowledged that soul mates are pretty good in theory: “In such great inevitable love, often love at first sight, we catch a vision, I suppose, of marriage as it should have been in an unfallen world.”In a letter to his son, he presented a far more nuanced and compelling approach to what a real “soul mate” is. “Only a of his life could make a sound judgment concerning whom, amongst the total possible chances, he ought most profitably to have married,” Tolkien wrote. It took time, and patience, and commitment.“He’s very efficient,” one woman I know said, looking at her husband with so much affection, I felt like I was intruding. We used to fight about it all the time, but now we just work around each other.But something funny happened: by the time the children were grown, neither wanted to leave.
