Whining Academics

There's No Crying in Baseball or Flying Fighters!

Most of us have been brought up in the "No Whining" school of flying fighters, a possible exception being SNAPs.  You gotta love Tom Hanks as he's explaining to the female baseball player above that there's no whining allowed in baseball either. 

Obviously the group of Greenies in whining example number one would have a problem fitting in to any fighter squadron I can think of.  It's a rather extreme example of whining over some deceased trees after some unknown fighter pilot committed herbicide with a chain saw.

As fighter pilots, we try to be the very best at everything we do. That's everything from hunting, fishing, drinking, gambling, flying, and even whining.  Now I know that seems a bit hypocritical after saying there's no whining in a fighter squadron.  Well ideally there's not, but we all know it happens.  So if you’re forced to whine, at least be good at it.  The Greenies are just too over the top whining over some dead wood.  If you're looking for a good example of how to put on a good whine, there's none better than example number two.  Hey, 26 million people on You Tube seem to think so.  So the next time you decide it's time to whine over taking a bad shot, droping a bad bomb, or missing a check in on the radio, at least try to be best whiner you can be.

Got this from Rowdy this morning, it seems the AF has an actual "Hurt Feelings" report to help support all the whiners and let them give feed back through the chain of command on how thier feelings were hurt.  What a great idea!



Lt Harold Beaver gives Whiner #2 a big thumbs up!
