5 weeks agoA C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
The jet jockey decided to show off and told the C-130 pilot:
`watch this!` and promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb.
He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier.
The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?
The C-130 pilot said, `That was impressive, but watch this!`
The C-130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130 pilot came back on and said: `What did you think of that?`
Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, `What the heck did you do?`
The C-130 pilot chuckled.
`I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, took a leak, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll."
And the lesson?

When you get older & smarter - comfort & boredom is not such a bad thing.
Us older folks understand this one, it`s called
S.O.S - Slower, Older and Smarter!
