(I seem to remember one episode where a plane landed without a pilot).
That happens all the time now. Must be magic...

In addition to the YouTube link you posted, see this: [^].
It's a 7 minute 40 second Boney segment (?). From the episode (1972): "Boney and the Payback Killer."
"What do humans depend on: words ! We're suspended in language: we can never say what's up: or, down.
We must communicate experience and ideas, but in ways that do not become ambiguous, and lose objectivity.
For parallels in human ideas to quantum theory: we must turn to psychology, or to the paradoxes of being thinkers like Buddha and Lao Tzu illuminated, when trying to grasp reality, as both observer, and actor, in human life's small-scale micro-cosmic drama."
Orf to meet Mrs Wife at the station. Early dinner and a glass or seven of something warming.
Have a good evening y'all!

Swiss military service is mandatory for all males (and voluntary for females) - but it isn't a year sqad bashing and peeling potatoes.
It lasts from 18 to 34 (or 50 in some cases) and requires military kit including weapons to be kept at home. However, after a (relatively) short training period, that is about it unless they are actually needed. (That's a vast over generalisation, I know - Wiki[^] put's it better and a lot more completely).
Odd place Switzerland - hates cars with a passion, will nick you for smoking a cigarette in public, but don't blink an eye as automatic weapons on the passenger seat. I like the place, despite the Swiss tourist board seemingly driving down each and every road to make sure it is scenic enough...
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
You should've got a higher rank than a normal soldier
Heh - I actually overheard a colonel asking my company commander why I wasn't promoted to a corporal and the response was that while I was a good guy and everybody liked me, I wasn't really much of a soldier. Can't say he was wrong
