Tom Cruise helps the Cause

Seems the Iranians wanted to get a closer look at a drone...  The US Air Force didn't think that would be a good idea.
“He [the Raptor pilot] flew under their aircraft [the F-4s] to check out their weapons load without them knowing that he was there, and then pulled up on their left wing and then called them and said ‘you really ought to go home,’” Gen. Welsh said.
A 'Top-Gun' move for sure, only thing better would have been an inverted fly-over with a salute :)

Football Picks

7-1 last week (really thought A&M would take it and they made a good show) so I'm 27-6 (81.8%) on the season.  Hard week this week though (if you don't go by the 'experts')

Vandy takes it to UMass  42-15
Georgia destroys North Texas 56-10
Tennessee upsets Florida late 27-24
Arkansas stays unbeaten... on a late field goal 21-20
Texas A&M tries to get to 100 ... beats SMU 71-33
Alabama takes it easy on Colorado St (and McElwain) 29-10
Mississippi State should beat Troy handily... they don't: Troy 34-33
LSU puts Auburn in its place. 31-18
Missouri stays unbeaten over Indiana; 52-40

From the Email


    Renault and Ford have joined forces to create the perfect small car for women.
     Mixing the Renault 'Clio' and the Ford 'Taurus' they have designed the 'Clitaurus.'    It comes in pink, and the average male car thief won't be able to find it - let alone turn it on - even if someone tells him where it is and how to do it.

     Rumor has it though, that it leaks transmission fluid once a month, and can be a real bitch to start in the morning!    Some have reported that on cold winter mornings, when you really need it, you can't get it to turn over.

     New models are initially fun to own, but very costly to maintain, and horribly expensive to get rid of.    Used models may initially appear to have curb appeal and a low price, but eventually have an increased appetite for fuel, and the curb weight typically increases with age.    Manufacturers are baffled as to how the size of the trunk increases, but say that the paint may just make it  LOOK bigger.

     This model is not expected to reach collector status.   Most owners will find it is best to just lease one, and replace it in a few years.
