34. I wonder how many classroom supplies for first graders across the nation...
...could be bought for the cost of the fuel that gets wasted during a typical air shows week long run. Don't forget, the air shows are not just the Blue Angels, but also all the other transports, jets and choppers, that the Navy uses. The Blue Angels are just the conclusion of the show.

Don't get me going about what a complete waste of time, energy, and resources that a typical air show is. At best it's nothing more than a thinly veiled recruitment and dick waving / muscle flexing / strutting-preening-alpha male/ chest thumping session for the military industrial complex. At worst it's a demonstration by big brother that they can get at you any time you get out of line, so you better mind your manners.

If your an old crank, I'm right there with you as an old AND crusty crank...
