Tortoise and the Hare

1. A Boeing 777 wide body jetliner was lumbering along at 800km/hour at 33000 feet when a cocky F-16 fighter jet flashed by at Mach 1.5.
2. The F-16 pilot decided to show off. On his state of the art radio that is part of his state of the art 3 D & million-dollar headset the F-16 youngster told the 777 pilot, “Hey Captain! Watch this!”
3. He promptly went into a barrel roll followed by a steep unimaginable vertical climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier as the F-16 screamed down at impossible G’s before leveling at almost sea level.
4. The F-16 pilot asked the 777 pilot, “What did you think of that?”

The 777-pilot said, “That was truly impressive, but watch this!”
5. The 777 chugged along for about 5 minutes at the steady 800km/hour and then the 777 pilot came back on and said, “What did you think of that?”

Puzzled, the cocky F-16 pilot asked, “What the heck did you do?”
6. The 777-pilot chuckled and said, “I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to the back, used the toilet, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll and secured a date for the next 3 nights in a five-star hotel paid for by the company.”
7. Moral of the story:

When you are young & foolish – speed & flash may seem like a good thing! When you get older & smarter – comfort & dullness is not such a bad thing!

It’s called S.O.S. – Slower, Older and Smarter!

///The end.
