I had nearly forgotten my ONE flight on Sabena---now the twitch is back. I believed we all went "mooooo" as we were loading...kind of like today's flying experience...
Speaking of airlines--anyone remember "The Big Banana"? Hughes Airlines...on a flight from Seattle to Yakima (16 minutes) the attendants literally threw packs of peanuts to the four of us...

ONe more car--Found On Roadside Dead.

UAV=Urban Assault Vehicle (Suburbans, Escalades, etc.)

Yes. Your question reminds me of three social fraternities that were popular at my Unisversity. You may be familiar with them:

TappaKegaDay, ITaptaKeg, and Gamma Delta Iota (God's Divine Independents).

The "EM-50 urban assault vehicle" figured in the second half of the 1981 Bill Murray movie Stripes.

BMF [tool of any sort] -- Big Mother Fletchin' Hammer, for instance.


If you can't fix it, force it; if you can't force it, go find a bigger hammer.
