While looking at the program guide this morning, I noticed they were running Popeye cartoons on the Boomerang network. The guide described the program as follows:
Popeye - The sailor courts Olive Oyl and gains strength through spinach.

Doesn't that description apply to every Popeye cartoon ever produced? Guess that covers them all.

Qantas . . . Still a Safe Airline

Yesterday, one of the world's safest airlines, Australia's Qantas, had a major explosive decompression event that tore a gaping hole in the side of the aircraft. Fortunately, the pilots were able to safely land at Manila, and not a single person was injured. I think I would have needed to make a purchase of clean underwear following such a frightening incident! It is a testament to human resiliency that the passengers remained fairly calm, as evidenced by the video below, taken on board the plane as it descended and landed.
