plane life

Posted in Uncategorized by bigsleytheoaf on January 28, 2010

If we were on a plane and the pilot came over the loudspeaker to say “sorry everyone, but the left engine’s out, we’re going down, we’ll most likely all be dead in a few minutes” what would the reaction be like?

At least one person would be desperate to live, cry out, shriek, try something unreasonable.

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”
– Thoreau

“That’s one of those dumb cocktail quotations that will strike fear in your heart as you get older. Actually, I was leading a life of loud desperation.”
– Bill Watterson
