A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
The jet jockey decided to show off.
The fighter jock 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 do you 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 asked, "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."
When you are young & foolish, speed and flash may seem a good thing!
When you get older and smarter, comfort and dullness is not such a bad thing!
Older folks understand this one: it's called S.O.S.
Slower, Older and Smarter.
