Local News is LAME

This morning on the news they were outraged by a hidden NASA study about airline safety. Apparently they anonymously surveyed about 24,000 pilots to determine what kind of near collisions and emergency landings are occurring. Get ready for the shocking statistic: Pilots reported TWICE AS MANY near in-air collisions than the report cites. At first that sounds like a NASA cover up until you consider that it takes TWO planes to have a near collision. Both pilots will report the same incident on their lame-ass survey. Come on, news.. really?!

p.s. Launch is 11:30-ish today for those of you lucky enough to be free. Don't forget to watch!!
