lol. You know the skill it takes to land in water with one of those things and not get ripped apart. Nice job on the pilots part.

He did a hell of a job. Plus he was the last man off, walking up and down the aisles to make sure all passengers were off. Plus his wife is a professional fitness instructor (obviously a younger wife and a second marriage - whaddaya bet the good Captain and the Mrs met when she was a flight attendant, eh? ;)). I'd say they've landed in the honey pot. The nation is about to throw laurels and gold at him, and her business will get a big boost too.

Didn't the pilot have military training or something? Good landing though. I'd like to see an auto pilot do that. Frakin toasters.

Also, nice job on the part of the private ferryman who, without hesitiation, had a few of his boats go and get the people off of the plane and take them to shore.

Yes, one story said he was a former fighter pilot without giving details. And yes, the ferrymen and other boatmen in the harbor were great.

Yeah, those bailouts are a bit on the fishy side. What else is american the gouvernment doing against the crisis, btw? Over here you now get a bunch of money for scrapping your old car and buying a new one, for example.

Lol yeah, and you get freed your car taxes for two years (a few hundred €s) if you NOW UNTIL JUNE buy a 60.000€ mercedes, for example! I can see the unemployed running towards the BMW trader in the next bigger city next to me already... how they throw away their half-filled (as opposed to half-empty, as was before) beer cans into the train station hall and doing a pilgrim journey to buy a new german car... Oh well, and parents get like an extra 300€ per kid as child benefits for once. Well, parents get these - unemployed, workers... bankers, porsche traders, entrepreneurs, marketing weirdos... Gotta ask my parents if I can have these, for as I'm a college student, they still get these.

Is anyone here actually suffering from this 'crisis'? Nothing changed for me, I only don't enjoy watching the news anymore which is too many times about the same crisis.

Well, america is pretty screwed up, but over here it doesn't seem like much of a crisis...

Aye, till the General Motors crash tears down Opel, which is the largest employer in my region by far. Can't people just siege Opel and take it away from GM, making it independent again? Sigh.
