Order is everything...

More often than not the order of words are more important than their meaning. Misinterpretation is a hazard that needs to be avoided. Unless of course the purpose is to deliberately mislead and create a situation advantageous to a particular set of circumstances. This very contrivance may not be seen as such by others, who may consider it to be mere folly or at worst an unconscionable error.

Wear more underpants.

When is one pair enough? Should one wear two pair regularly? Or, should it be too difficult to wear three pair on a whim? Is this really sufficient to remove any thoughts of stiffness? Don't try and blame the cold or the altitude. Of course talking to your friends might help as long as you provide an accurate description. Your only other option of course is to go commando.

Dropping your pants...

Napoleon said there was a only a single step between the ridiculous and sublime. One simple mistake, one small misunderstanding, one small slip of the tongue and everything can go the way of the shape of the pear. Those who insist on acting first and then following up with actions may need to move quicker than their thoughts allow.

To smoke the pipe...

...and admire the picture of yourself while pretending to pay attention to the lesser ranks. This is what leadership is all about. This one scene shows how to lead and what is expected. There is nothing more calming than authority. Display the cool eye and steady hand and smoke the pipe and men, real men, will follow you anywhere and do anything you say.

Our moment of triumph.

Winning that's what it's all about. No sense in doing your best if it doesn't result in a good old fashioned win. What if your best isn't good enough? Should participation alone suffice?  As simple as this all may sound it really is quite complex. Winning alone may seem to some to be all. Yet will it be enough?

This is not the room of mirrors.

Right place right time or unfortunate coincidence? When looking for the right place sometimes the wrong place comes along. An inconvenient truth or an unlucky happenstance? Boarding this flight might take you to places you've not thought of, even worse it might take you to the ones you know. Sure it's dark now but can you afford to wait for later?

England, is there anywhere better?

England! If you say it enough times is there anywhere better? England, England, oh England how it rolls off the tongue and sweetens the smile. Other countries' names try as they might can never have the same effect. It would be puerile to name them, or even hint at who they might be, but they would mostly be drawn from that sad lot of non-cricketing nations. Now is the time to brighten the smile and put the glint into the eye and say...

Fatal mistakes and how to make them.

This would appear, at first, easy to do...as a pilot (or even a non-pilot) start by believing in the myth that gravity is your friend. Next you could take up the challenge that guns don't kill people only people with guns kill people (or whatever it is). Or you could even test if low alcohol beer in small glasses is any better than full strength beer in large doses.
These actions all carry consequences and most of them fatal. Destiny can be a tricky thing but why tempt the ill fates when a quiet beer should suffice?

Into the abyss...

The leap is not too great for those prepared to make it even though the preparation of doing so may take some time. So if you are partial to the idea of leaping (or falling) between skyward and earthward this is your time.  The time is now to ready yourself for that endless fall and face the cruel (or perhaps not) irony of setting foot again on the very place that defines any ascent

Maps and their wonder.

There's no telling what a well placed map will do to a real man. Hours can pass and a fellow will hardly be able to avert his gaze from the table if a good map is placed upon it. So much to look at, to consider and to discuss.
Viewing a map in the company of men may make you change how you view those men. You might consider a fellow dull or inopportune until you see him see a map.
Maps! Making the joy of being a man even more so.
