I have been on many 747 flights, in various version of the machine.


On one of the very late United 747 flights from Sydney to west coast one of the dunny doors fell off the hinges mid way, not above Midway though. More like Fiji. One of the rotund male staff on board did manage the operational repairs necessary.


Another in the last week of United 747 flights on that route was chockers with customers because another had been cancelled because of a failure before it depart US on the outward journey. Deemed not worth repairing when it has less than two weeks' service remaining.


The United meal trays were the silliest I have seen on any airline. They had two levels n the bottom with no vertical piece between them, and posts under the high side to sit it on the tray table. You could not rotate the tray on the table to make it place different things at the front, and spills on it would leak onto the table. And even United did not use them on any other plane I travelled on. They could have at least just tossed them when they broke and replaced them with normal ones, but that kind of idea seems too hard for big US companies.

And for all of you worried about landing 747 on short strips, check the Qantas 747 at Longreach airport in central Queensland.


To land it there they took out all the removable stuff which was later shipped in a truck and refitted to make the museum exhibit. And they flew an absolute minimum fuel flight to avoid unnecessary mass on board when landing. I think there was not enough on board for a go round, by flight plan decision.

For some unfathomable reason I started thinking of the classic games Attack of the Mutant Camels and Revenge of the Mutant Camels, the computer game equivalent of lutefisk on LSD. Now, be that as it may, I never cared much for those games anyway. It led me to briefly want to play some of the games from the Commodore 64 era - just to realise that doing so I would most probably discover how horribly bad they were and end up ruining fond memories... Better leave those be

50 Ways to Use Bacon > Start Cooking

Ahh, bacon! That crispy, chewy, salty and sinful cut of pork we all love.

Depending on where in the world you live, bacon is cut from the sides, belly, or back of a pig, near the ribs. The most common form of bacon sold in the United States is side bacon. It is very fatty with long layers of fat running parallel to the rind. It’s the fattiness of the meat that makes it so yummy. After the skin is cut away, the meat is cured, smoked, and sliced. It can be cooked in a pan on the stovetop, in the oven, or in the microwave, until it’s perfectly crisp.
1. Make a good old BLT sandwich, of course.
2. Bacon cheeseburgers will make anyone’s mouth water. Meat topped with more meat? Perfection!
3. Bacon-wrapped tater tots would go perfectly with that bacon cheeseburger!
4. Roast a bacon-wrapped turkey breast for Sunday dinner.
5. Make delicious bacon parmesan twists.
6. Add a punch of flavor to your creamed spinach recipe.
7. Make your own hot bacon dressing for a fabulous spinach salad!

10. Maple bacon cupcakes (made from a cake mix) look easy and mouth watering.
11. And if you liked those, try some maple bacon cookie bark.
12. It’s not real, southern cornbread unless there’s bacon grease in it.
13. Bacon lip balm anyone?
14. Join the bacon of the month club to have artisan bacon delivered to your door 12 times a year.
15. A plate full of candied bacon is very hard to resist.
16. A Bacon Martini, (also known as Pig On The Rocks) is made with bacon infused vodka.
17. For a great garnish for drinks, try making a bacon swizzle stick.
18. Whip up a tasty bacon and cheese quiche for dinner.
19. Cook bacon into the shape of cups and fill with lettuce and tomato for a breadless BLT.
20. Stay warm bacon hot chocolate.
21. Bacon salt adds the flavor without the calories.
22. If pork-covered pork appeals to you, you may also enjoy the Grilled Bacon-Wrapped hot dogs.

24. Bacon wrapped Cheesy Stuffed Jalapeños will be a huge hit at your next party.
25. Top your next dinner party with these totally amazing Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes.
26. Impress your guests with Bacon Wrapped Scallops.
27. A bacon-y take on an Asian favorite: bacon and bok choy potstickers.
28. Weave and bake bacon into edible placemats.
29. Then, use the woven bacon to augment your grilled cheese experience.
30. The Bacon Explosion is to die for! (Make only if you are a hardcore bacon lover)

41. Fancy up your Mac and Cheese with some bacon.
42. Potato soup with bacon sounds like the perfect soup to warm you up!
43. Strawberry bacon spinach salad will make you the star of any potluck.
44. Salty bacon is great inside an egg salad sandwich.
45. Try roasted pears with cheese and bacon.

No, but there should be a group intervention for anyone who would put it on a pizza.
