  1. I pledged Kappa Phi Delta the fall semester of 1969 as a new freshman at San Francisco State College.  One of my pledge brothers was a junior transfer with a few years in the Navy in between.  At age 26 he was dowright ancient, and it was fun watching him take orders from younger "upper-classmen," which he did in good spirit.  :)

  2. This is bizarre. 


    I hadn't heard of it 'til seeing this thread.  Turned on Prime, and there it was!  Started watching Episode 1, had to take a break for some phone calls; when I tried to resume, it had changed from "Season 1 included with Prime" to gotta pay for it, something like $3.99 per episode.


    Nope.  :mellow:

    The Phantom isn't the F-18.


    Nope... it surely ain't.  :)


    Just pointing out that the F-18 was not the FIRST Angels ejection - there've been a bunch.  The one above was the first of something like a half-dozen involving F-18's.  There were, I think, two from F-4's, and one A-4.


    As a side note, I've found a bunch of folks who were surprised to learn that the Angels actually did fly F-4's, from '69 'til '74.  I watched them once from the flight deck of the Ranger (CV-61) when she was docked in Alameda, back in the early 70's.  Memorable day; the ship hosted an "open house" during the Angels performance, then instituted a lockdown when somebody swiped some Marine's 1911!  Over fifty years later, I don't recall if we were all frisked or not, but it was memorable nevertheless.  :rolleyes:

    Never knew anyone, male or otherwise, who had a “prostrate” to check. 

    The meme is amusing, but also an indictment of our school system. 


    Prepared for a "prostrate exam."  :rolleyes:
