This guy is not a pilot.

Based on some of the pilots I've known, that statement may not be entirely true... >:D :angel:

Pilot or not, that's a Darwin Award in the making.

I don't get it. What do you mean by "This guy is not a pilot." Also, what is a Darwin Award?

I saw that picture in a safety-related message before. I do not remember the exact wording, but it was something like "Study this picture." Then asked about his faults. "He is not wearing goggles, he is not using gloves." By then you finally realized something else...

Luckily, somewhere, I already have a CAP-formatted Darwin Award certificate made up.

Well, to be fair, I don't have a single chainsaw that makes the chain spin when it starts.  Prime, pull the choke, foot on handle, yank cord.  From there it just idles until the throttle is squeezed.


That said, there's no chance I'd do this...ever!

If the clutch is adjusted properly. How lucky do you feel? :o
