    Stay at enough Trump properties, and dreams really do come true.

    More theories on 737Max

    https://amp.usatoday.com/amp/1219147001

    I've watched more than a few flight videos on YouTube. On a few, the pilot turns on the autopilot soon (like right after wheels up) after take off. He's not flying - he's pushing buttons. If something goes wrong with the systems, he msy not have enough stick and rudder time to make a difference.

    Maybe they should fly the plane up to 10,000 feet before turning on the autopilot??

    It was always my understanding that pilots are required to manually fly one landing per workday, but maybe that's not true, and it also says nothing about takeoff scenarios.

    All landings are manual except CAT III approaches that require autoland. Autopilot must be turned off by 50 ft. AGL. Some approaches (such as the runway 22 ILS in LGA) can't be flown with the autopilot at all. Our procedures don't allow it to be turned on until the aircraft is cleaned up (gear and flaps retracted) and we reach what's called the acceleration altitude. Usually about 1000 ft or so off the ground. From my anecdotal experience, they will also manually fly when avoiding weather on climbout before turning it on.

    Also, it's hard enough to convince them to fly MIA EYW without one...

    Sam Bee explains how MLMs aren't just an awful business model (as we know they are), but how they're also largely exploiting women.

    I'd be curious if this preceded the great recession or any other recessions as well (a spike in car loan defaults)

    edit: Obviously the answer is yes, just a matter of degree.

    I thought I read that it was a leading indicator for 2008.

    This guy is regarded as part of the conservative brain trust. This is the best they've got.

    The F students formed their own political party and regard the C students as brilliant.

    Buckley was wrong but at least he wasn't stupid.

    US Steel idling two blast furnaces (one in Gary, the other in Detroit) as steel sales/demand continue to slide.

    You know, the industry our Lord and Savior Donald Trump personally saved from the ashes by enacting a 25% tariff on imported steel.
