City in the Sky


Senryü:are you not entertained?

high above the clouds
need inflight entertainment
look out the window


A night
Seated
In limbo
Touching heaven
And by and by
Arrive alive
Flying
Red eyed

What the Flying F#ck: Police arrested a woman and a daughter when they tried to smuggle the woman’s dead husband in a wheelchair onto a plane. They had covered his eyes with sunglasses and told authorities he was just sleeping.


The sky is full of more than birds  <
Man has conquered another realm


Fun Flying Fact: At any given time, there are 9,700 planes and 1.2 million people in the sky


Though far apart
Up on high
We have built ourselves
A city in the sky

Weekly Theme:
National Aviation Week

  1. A lot of truths hidden here M. Well done……

    Billy (again) has been doing some individual research gazing into the sky. (We need to encourage our little researchers M. They will be the researchers of the future)

    By looking in the sky (and recording on a chalkboard) he has concluded that for every bird flying there is one aeroplane Did you know that?. He extrapolated (yes he understands the word) his result to the global bird/plane ratio of 1:1. I’m sure there are a lot of holes in his work but don’t want to disappoint him, as you will understand. If he recorded on a laptop not chalkboard I’m sure his results would be more accurate.

    It’s OK to tell me I’m talking nonsense. I can take it. Really I’m thinking of you. I know how you hate textbook comments…..

    1. Thanks Don.
      That Billy is unstoppable. There’s nothing he can’t accomplish.
      Of course, but the fact he could extrapolate at all is impressive. Allowances should be made.
      Definitely not a textbook comment 👍

      1. It’s all a matter of proportion. The more one posts the more comments one gets and the more time is needed to respond. I try not to become popular and avoid this problem….

      2. I will be cutting back to 3 posts a week I think. Almost made my mind up.
        I’m a month ahead so it will be a while before it takes effect.

      3. I only post once a day not 5 times …..Not being famous like you I don’t attract all the huge number of comments. And I couldn’t handle all those textbook comments like ‘this is brilliant! wish I could have written it’. I’d rather get something like ‘this is shit” to which I would respond ‘you do better’. I’d be in trouble if they did….

        I do go on…..

      4. I counted 7 yesterday 🤣
        Perhaps a post means something else to each of us.
        I would love more constructive comments but WordPress isn’t the place for it. I’ve had over 10,000 comments and I can only recall a handful being constructive. WordPress is praise based.

      5. Just to clarify you said I posted 5 times a day and I said I only posted once. What I meant was I only posted once that day but it consisted of 7 posts.

        Is 10,000 over your whole site time? I can appreciate your frustration.

        I’ll tell Billy his comments are one of your handful. You’ll have a follower for life. One who comments M, not all these who press ‘follow’ and you never hear of again…..

      6. You can understand my confusion.

        Yup. Over the last time I checked.

        There are a few that press that button more than once.

  2. In flight entertainment is to try to escape the suffocating nature of an airplane atmosphere and seating :). Also for when not in window seat lol.

    I need to know why the dead man was flying. Did he have a funeral to get to or something?

    Not sure which smells worse, fish congee on China Airlines or dead body. 😂

      1. Happens often!!?? Jesus. Well at least there’s a kind of rational reason then given the costs lol. Although not sure what that says about our society when it’s cheaper to transport living souls than dead ones 😂.

        Cologne?

      2. Any way to make money, unfortunately.
        It would have to be a while lot of Cologne unless the body was embalmed or stuffed, but even then those procedures are not without their pungent odors.
