    16 reasons airplanes are easier to live with than women

    *Sixteen reasons why airplanes are easier to live with than women:

    1) Airplanes usually kill you quickly - a woman takes her time.
    2) Airplanes can be turned on by a flick of a switch.
    3) Airplanes don't get mad if you do a "touch and go."
    4) Airplanes don't object to a preflight inspection.
    5) Airplanes come with manuals to explain their operation.
    6) Airplanes have strict weight and balance limitations.
    7) Airplanes can be flown any time of the month.
    Airplanes don't come with in-laws.
    9) Airplanes don't care about how many other airplanes you've flown
    before.
    10) Airplanes and pilots both arrive at the same time.
    11) Airplanes don't mind if you look at other airplanes.
    12) Airplanes don't mind if you buy airplane magazines.
    13) Airplanes expect to be tied down.
    14) Airplanes don't comment on your piloting skills.
    15) Airplanes don't whine unless something is really wrong.
    16) However, when airplanes go quiet, just like women, it's usually
    not good.

    Airplanes dont complain when you go hunting for a week with the buds...

    You can have more than one airplane at a time...

    And one of my favorites:

    Though the initial cost is usually more, you can choose the amount you spend on modifying the airplane!
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Cal, Cal, Cal,
    I have tried to stay away... but friends are bugging me.
    I see your 16 reasons why...

    all sixteen also work for:

    Why Airplanes are easier to live with than MEN

    And I add the following 6:

    When power is at idle an airplane still glides in to a perfect landing
    In the absence of battery power airplanes immediately respond to hand proping
    Airplanes can land anywhere
    Airplanes can land in many different configurations
    An Airplanes stick responds to fingertip control
    An Airplanes stick is always ready and at attention!!

    With the help of some friends there is also:

    Airplanes take you were you want to go without complaining
    Airplanes can be fitted with a GPS - never have to ask directions
    Airplanes can fly for hours without needing a break

    Pokette's observations must be hitting pretty close to home, I see no responses from the male gender. Or is she hitting below the belt?

    If an Airplane is slipping, all you have to do is kick it to make it fly straight!

    When you hand prop an Airplane, the heavy work is done once it's running and ready to go!

    When you get rid of an airplane, it immediately stops costing you money.
    After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF !
