Arrogance in a surgeon maybe,,,arrogant pilots are the first ones to
ignore ATC's and end up making an aluminum shower. big difference
between arrogance and confidence
i was visiting my wife at work a while ago. some of you know she's an
ATC, but anyhow...
i am sitting there and i hear one of the other controllers tell a
plane he needed to circle around the outer marker due to weather. . .
he replied in a REAL snippy voice " you know, it costs my company a
thousand dollars every time i need to make a circle up here. . ."
to which the controller replied, "so gimme 3 grand worth"
Inside the cockpit, arrogance is willing to make the decision. What kills
is indecision as altitude decreases. Traffic control is for protection
against others, not self-survival.
Hate to tell you how many "arrogant" controllers there are (were) out there.

blocks all UV (that's why you don't get a sunburn from sitting in your
house on a sunny day). So it's some other wavelength that does it to

relationship. But I would explain that the best pieces darken
naturally over time, and if you stain it, the value won't be as great.
In addition to all the wisdom floated your way... there is one more
thing: the color will vary from tree to tree or atleast grove to
My wife's cherry exterior cedar-lined chest is 4 years older than the
her rocking chair. The chair is significantly darker than the chest.
The chair is 5, the chest is 9. Both with the same finish (Watco
Natchural). Both live in about the same light level -- the chest
probably sees MORE light. The chair keeps getting darker and has
reached a magnificent deep red. The chest color is pretty stable.
When it was fresh cut the chair was distinctly red. The chest was
distinctly pink. This is why one attempts to buy by the flitch when
building a large project.
