Indications are that I will be landing in YYC as scheduled.
Also, if you copy Buns of Steel IV off an ancient VHS tape onto a DVD, and then you leave that DVD in your computer and hibernate it, the computer will not come out of hibernation until you use a bobby pin to open the DVD drawer and remove the DVD.
Yeah, a bobby pin. Like a 1950s detective novel, eh?
I think a paper clip is the standard tool. Some desktop CD/DVD drives come with a thing that looks like a small hex wrench but it's round not hexagonal and is the right size to fit in the little manual eject hole.
So when do we get pics of the results?
The image associated with the name doesn't sound comfortable on those long-haul xc flights.
And you should add some metric of your progress to the page...
p.s. My verification word is "mufedia" - swap letter and I think we may have a new word to describe TV "reporters" trying to understand aviation?
What is a bobby pin, and is it legal to have one on an aircraft?
is it legal to have one on an aircraft ...
The captain and FO may each carry one as long as they're kept unloaded and they remain in a special secure box.
Heh, I came over here to delete this post, because who would be interested in reading a post that was really addressed to the one or two people who might be coming by? But at least four of you read t, so I guess it can stay.
A bobby pin is type of hair clip. It's a very narrow flat strip of metal, bent double so the result is a bit shorter than a woman's little finger. There is no clasp or clip or anything, it just holds in by friction. It has a few ripples in the shape for grip. Most elaborate up-dos are secured with dozens of bobby pins, and you also use them if you are growing out bangs that are too long to be in your face, but not long enough to be pulled back.
Nineteen-fifties detective fiction frequently features the hero asking his girlfriend for a bobby pin so he can pick a lock.
There is a specific way of bending a bobby pin into a sort of double loop with tension in it. It holds its shape until something pushes a small bit of it to the side, at which point it releases the tension with a quick whipping action of one of the loops. They were often used as miniature mines in high school -- attempting to pick one up usually sets it off, giving the victim a small but painful flick on the finger.
You might have more than 2 or 3 people passing by :-)
Starting to riddle what a dozen of bobby pins would do to your green hair ;-)
BTW, looking at 80's TV series, McGiver would have constructed a deadly weapon out of these things, just a pin and a bit of tin foil, there you are - instant weapon *lol*
