My italian friend says 'brillo' means 'tipsy' in italian and told me about the time when microsoft created a touch calculator app (where you could use your finger to write expressions).
They called that app 'inkulator' which in italian sounds very, very, VERY and i mean, seriously WRONG!

It was a pre-delivery flight. That's BAD. Big bugs such as this one that causes the motherfucking engines to motherfucking quit should have been spotted earlier.
Don't mind me... i'm just a cranky old guy against the cramming of more motherfucking computers on these motherfucking planes.
I'd love to have someone point me out an event in which these systems actually saved the day, cause i can't think of one.

He who steps on others to reach the top has good balance.
