You can watch the big plane take-off here. It’s a big plane. Taking off.
Tags: big planes, woo
It’s sitting there for a bit.
It’s a big plane. You can hear people talking about it.
The big plane is blue and white, and has flashing red lights.
It looks a bit wet in Seattle.
Two T-33 trainers are now in view.
They are friends of the big plane. Don’t worry.
IT’S MOVING!!! THE BIG PLANE IS MOVING!!!
CLEARANCE FOR TAKE-OFF!!
Runway 34. It’s sitting, having a big look.
This is quite gripping.
The big plane is looking down the runway.
It seemed to take off very quickly for such a big plane.
The big plane heads off into the grey skies.
There were lots of people watching the big plane take off.
They looked quite small beside the big plane.
Plane porn — who knew?
The big plane disappears from the webcast, and now it’s some people talking about how the big plane is great, because it is big.
It certainly is.
The wings look to have flaps.
No milling people were harmed.
@gerbilsinlove: It flaps its wings? Just what kind of airplane is this?
Oh wait… read that wrong.
787? How many screaming babies does it hold?
Virus, I felt like I was there, thanks to your tireless commentary.
how do you know when things are happening? what sort of fan club are you a part of?
NEWT- There is a quarterly! The kid selling magazines to get off the street never tells me about that one!
Look, I know that you guys are having a lot of fun with this post. Especially you, Virus. But this is a big day for the Boeing Company and I think we should try to be supportive. Damn it. Why do we always have to be so sarcastic about everything?
Way to go, Boeing. Way to go.
I’ve always been a big fan of the Airbus, but I must say this Boeing jet looks swingin’. Mood lighting for meals? I’m in!
I was half expecting it to be hit by that 50-sq. mile iceberg that’s currently menacing New Zealand.
Still, I would trade it all for just one giant orgy submarine.
Are submarines really just aeroplanes that didn’t want it enough?
Are tangerines really just oranges that didn’t want it enough?
Chill-do you have to register an orgy submarine with different forms then a regular one? How many first mates does that require?
@Strawberry Shortcake: I’m thinking, since it’s a submarine, you’d need an awful lot of seamen…
Am I the only one who clicked on the link and did not see a big plane take off?
@Mama Penguino: It was a live webcast… and apparently Boeing has not seen fit to re-post the video on the same link.
Sphinx: Are you seriously maligning the deliciousness that is the tangerine? I would hope not, as those are bitch-slappin’ words.
I believe the fruit you were looking for was the tangelo, that bastardized conglomeration of citrus.
Story of my life – the big plane’s taking off and I was probably buttering a piece of toast or cleaning my ears.
@Gerbils: Why don’t you like tangelos? Do you have something against inter-citrus love?
@WhyamIhere: Tangelos are destroying the sanctity of citrus!
Figures everyone would rush to talk to the pretty blonde girl. Never mind me, I’ll just be out back picking potatoes.
@Mama Penguino: I am deeply saddened to hear that you believe that my responses are generated solely on the basis of a commenter’s hair color.
@Newt: You really know how to ruin a girl’s pity party.
@Mama Penguino: Pity parties are for the pitiful, and you are far from pitiful, Lady Penguina.
Are you suggesting coconuts should still migrate?
While not exactly against inter-citrus love as a concept, I simply don’t understand the need for tangelos. Why can’t they just stay in their own citrus neighborhoods where they belong? The bastardization of the tangerine, loveliness in its purest form, is a sin from which we must be delivered at all costs!
Mama P: No one can see me or my Garnier-colored hair. Or my big fat ass, thank god, or no one would talk to me at.all. You, however, are Miss Popularity, while I am the new girl people constantly side-eye.
@gerbilsinlove: Good god… self-deprecation appears to be a fine art amongst Wordsmokers. Lady Gerbils, certainly you do not think that anyone, least of all those of us here, look at you askance?
Newt: Perhaps. I have yet to prove my mettle by issuing a post of my own, prefering to lurk and comment in small doses. I have not the nerve to offer a writing to this illustrious site, fearing rejection and humiliation. Alas.
@gerbilsinlove: So start with a “Twenty Things” — we’ll be good, we promise!
@MamaP: I cannot see your hair color from here and I actually prefer brunettes. Either way hair color is not a deal breaker. Besides, Gerbils doesn’t like my fruit.
@Gerbils: I am not suggesting that we eliminate tangerines or grapefruits. I just think there is room for the tangelo in the middle. If we got rid of tangelos what would I do with the tree in my yard. Should I yell at it and call it a dirty rotten hybrid?
WHYAMIHERE: It’s not that I dislike your tangelos. They’re perfectly fine, if you’re into that kind of thing, it’s just that I prefer the juicy goodness of a ripe tangerine.
I really despise grapefruits, though. They make my mouth hurt.
I’M NOT JUDGING.
@Gerbils: My eyes are tearing. I just rubbed them and still had tangerine juice on my fingers. I think we found our common ground in grapefruit.
@Gerbils: I scoff at your ridiculous attempt to describe yourself. You forget I have gazed upon your lovely visage. You have shiny, silky blonde hair, a gorgeous, winning smile, and the soft, sexy body of a modern-day Venus. You are luscious!
@Why: Hello, stranger. Did I mention I’m a brunette?
@gerbilsinlove, @WhyamIhere: At last, consensus in the world of citrus: grapefruit is evil. Now, onto national health care…
@Mama Penguino: I am now having rather interesting thoughts, vis-a-vis something the Lady Gerbils did say in the prior Smokies thread…
I love pink grapefruit.
@Mama Penguino: Doh! Filibuster!
