    Oh god, Job shadowing.

    During middle school, I wanted to be a fighter pilot. They expected me to job-shadow a fighter pilot.


    Now my Ag teacher is planning on making us do something similar. I want to fly helicopters. I don't know anyone who flies helicopters. Ergo, I don't know what to do.


    I lol'd. "Now son, when the cropped-delta planform wing-fuselage starts bleeding, always remember to drop your payload as soon as possible."


    Did that intentionally make no sense?

    I know a good bit about aeronautics (I'm no expert, granted), but the "cropped-delta planform wing-fuselage" bit threw me off.

    Cropped-delta" sort of makes sense; I'm assuming that means you take a wing shaped like a triangle (a Delta wing) and chop off part of it so two edges are parallel.

    As far as I know, "planform" refers to the general shape of an aircraft as viewed from a directly above or below the aircraft in question. In this context, I guess it would refer to the shape of the wings? If so, that's a bit like saying "Old-style style rock-and-roll."

    Unless the aircraft in question uses a blended-wing design, I don't see how a "wing-fuselage" could exist.

    And then there's the matter of how all that could "bleed..."

    Of course, it could all just be a joke. It probably is; I tend to be stupid a lot.


    haha, no don't worry about it. I just threw some terms together to make a point of how pointless it is for a middle schooler to shadow a fighter pilot.

    I'm 18 and I would jump at the chance to have a pirate war with my friends.

    Don't worry about it, your friends are just trying to convince you and everyone else that they're "mature" and "cool".

    A half decent song. Though one does wonder if he was superimposed onto that stage. Who the hell would go to a Rick Astley concert?
