Oh neat, YSPilots is still around. Why does this website still exist.
I have no ideas for a signature, but I'm open to suggestions ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm surprised the community still does, to be honest.

When you realise that most Canadians don't even know what the Dunkirk Evacuation is...or know any kind of Canadian wartime history; yet the other Commonwealth nations have a better understanding and overall sense of patriotism.

I've flown Southwest a lot. I think the people who look down on Southwest either a. are just parroting what they hear others say about Southwest or b. have some pre-conceived notions about the airline or c. had one really bad experience with it and from that point onwards, took an intense dislike to Southwest. Then of course you have the people who just love to hate something period. No airline is perfect nor will any airline ever be (as is any business for that matter), but I've consistently had great flights with Southwest. And contrary to popular perception, Southwest is not cattle class. I've received royal treatment on Southwest compared to a few other airlines, and I've flown a lot.

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN OKC, I landed AT OKC. On the other hand, I did land in Oklahoma City.

I have a Masters Degree in History Education. I didn't know much about Dunkirk until last year.

I think history standards in secondary education have improved, but they still have a long way to go. Most students don't want to learn history, and the biggest reason is nobody is telling them why it is important early on in their schooling. STEM is being emphasized, and for good reason, but STEM prepares students for careers. Social Studies prepares students for life in society.

Nothing is impossible. The matter is your willingness to do it 8-)

I just saw this quote and thought I would share it.

"This is a fatal flaw in the human psyche. And that fatal flaw is caring way too much about what other people think. We all are afflicted by it."

Huxley presented the thought: Is it better to have a safe and happy existence, or an existence enriched by truth and art? I'll take the safe and happy existence. Surely, anyone who's seen true hardship would do the same.
And this is where I'd put my signature...
IF I HAD ONE!
