I Finally Understand Why Flying is the Safest Mode of Transportation

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I Finally Understand Why Flying is the Safest Mode of Transportation

Post by General Mackevili » Wed Apr 25, 2018 10:42 am

I always assumed it was for technical reasons, or because there isn't hardly anything to crash into while you're up there, but those seem to be unrelated to the reason.

The real reason is pretty obvious! Clearly it's because only 5% of pilots are women!! Who knew? Travel by car would probably be just as safe if 95% of drivers were men. :whip:

Flew with Delta a few weeks back while visiting the states and we had a female airline pilot. I never really thought about it, but it was very different seeing a frumpy looking Captain saying good bye to us as we got off the flight.

Norwegian have less female pilots than Emirates, that's unexpected. :shock: I thought the Scandinavians were way up there on gender equality.

Shhhhh. That will be the next fucking gender equality project. They are currently on about STEM and practically have to force girls into these subjects. Do you want your next pilot to be some disgruntled woman who wanted to be a nurse but was upsold on the idea that what she really NEEDS is more math and physics. Hello German Wings.

"The revolution did more than legally create the United States; it transformed American society... Far from remaining monarchical, hierarchy-ridden subjects on the margin of civilization, Americans had become, almost overnight, the most liberal, the most democratic, the most commercial minded, and the most modern people in the world." - Gordon S.

Actually up until they made sex discrimination in insurance illegal here women paid less for car insurance because they have cheaper accidents. Also, wasn't it a bird who just landed that plane that lost an engine? Seem to recall she was some sort of ex-top gun, too. She's got a stupid American name, though, so there is that.

Let's face it. Women have their place.

But it is not Usually one where logic, map reading, mechanics or rationality is involved.

They are lovely little creatures but best left to other domains.

I am surprised that since you wrote this that Miss Ros has not been written up on the news for committing a grave injustice on your person.
