There are three stages of man: he believes
in Santa Claus; he does not believe in
Santa Claus; he is Santa Claus. Bob Phillips

good and bad. The good sleep better, but
the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours
much more. Woody Allen

Flash – New Weapon in America’s Arsenal – Dubbed ‘The Chicken Gun’ Senate majority
leader Howard H. Baker Jr., expressed astonishment to the Senate, over recent news
accounts of an Air Force “chicken gun. “It seems the gun is a converted 20-foot cannon
capable of hurling dead four-pound chickens at airplanes at 700 miles per hour … The
armament is used to help find ways to reduce accidents caused by jets hitting birds.
“My first reaction to this story was one of bitterness,” Baker told colleagues. “I wonder
why a ‘special classified briefing’ had not been set up for members of Congress on the
new chicken gun and I wondered if Secretary of Defense was planning one.” Baker also
wondered aloud “how far along the Soviet Union is with the deployment of their ‘chicken gun’,
and how will our Minuteman, Midgetman and Sparrow missiles get along with this new weapon…”
Baker went on to wonder if the Navy might be working on its own version of ‘the chicken gun’,
“which would be, one assumes, a ‘chicken of the sea’.” Baker congratulated the Air Force “on
its resourcefulness.” “Despite the fact that there will no doubt be those that will be skeptical
of such research, I for one, see nothing more involved than a little ‘fowl’ play,” Baker replied…😳😁😎
Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Houston, we have a problem.”
Answer: Tom Hanks, “Apollo 13”
Quite possibly one of the most recognizable movie taglines, the movie quote is actually misquoted from the real Apollo 13/Houston Control transmissions during the incident. After the explosion that occurred on the service module section of the spacecraft, Command Module pilot John Swigert Jr. (played by Kevin Bacon in the film) reported back to Mission Control “Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here.” After the “say again” response from Houston, Mission Commander James Lovell then stated “Houston, we’ve had a problem.”. Directed by Ron Howard and released in 1995, the film also starred Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris. Nominated for nine Academy Awards (including Best Picture) in 1996, “Apollo 13” won Oscars for Best Sound and Best Film Editing.
