  • Czech military jet would be flying over US airspace in a blizzard? I'm glad you're OK. I do hope you ran out to the crash site with a shirt that said "Dude, I'm blogging this!" :)
    • Apparently once Jesus Pope Reagan forever won the War On Communism (Except For Our Friends In China), the Czechs just started selling these planes to anyone who wanted them.

      And so a "company in Las Vegas" bought one, and this supposedly involved a rich idiot who liked to just "take 'er out for a spin" every now and then. Blah blah blah poor life choices blah blah blah Darwin, and BOOM.

      I was actually asleep when it went KBLOOMSKI; but the neighbors have been having some construction done, so I just sort of figured the sound was their builderslave dropping something, and I rolled over and went back to sleep; but then the very unusual and persistent sounds of a rescue helicopter buzzing the area (looking for the ejected pilot?) woke me right up. Helicopters flying low are very rare here (no LAPD here!), much less one making the angry-engine sounds of having to fight to stay up in a blizzard.

      Still, the sheer nastiness of the blizzard kept me in the whole day.

      I went to the supermarket today, and the whole area behind the supermarket, where the crash happened, was cordoned off, with camo-suit guys running around. And it smelled a bit of jet fuel. And I couldn't take my usual stairstreet home, because apparently the bottom of it was pretty zorched from the crash! And so it was all roped off. That was weird.
