Of course we all know I'm as guilty of that as anyone, so me proposing this idea is kinda like the devil asking everybody to repent and reform.

With that in mind, here goes nuttin'! I was helping some guy in the General forum and came across what amounts to the basic information I was requied to comprehend well enough to pass a test within a 90% grade before I was allowed by my Father to touch the controls of an airplane. Quite a trick for a child and just looking at the index makes my pea sized brain hurt even today. Anyways, Oleg punches the code trying to get as close as a PC will let us get to seriously reproducing flight in a simulation. I really believe that if everyone who wanted to post in Oleg's Whiney Room would be required to pass the same test that I was required to pass at 9 years of age, then they will be granted access to post in this forum... now CrazyDude, stop.., hey man, stop laughing... I'm serious here!... Ok. ok, I'm dreaming, but the point I'm trying to make here is that many of us "think" we know the basics of flight, yet we simply do not. I really think if we all actually like comprehended this information... not just read it... they taught apes to read philosophy, (with like sign language) they simply did not comprehend it!.. ok, where was I before I got stoned and missed it?... oh, yeah, anyways, if we all comprehended this basic info, the posting would not be so fast, furious and well, useless in ORR, so ok, here's the link...

I think if we all at least tried to comprehend the basics, Oleg wouldn't have to hit the bottle so hard before looking at this forum and maybe he'd get in fewer car accidents. Whatcha think?

Thanks for the link.

When is the test?

Is it essay form or multiple guess?

ping666 will be administering the test down at the main building for the Ministry of Silly Walks just as soon as he stops pirating the game and gets a legal copy of the product. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I'm for the occasional intelligent discussion, despite my posts, http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif but I think that's maybe a bit too far.

A bit sisnister, don't you think?

Man its just a game!

Some of you better do a reality check before
you get escorted away by men in white suits
and put in a padded room and fed threw a
sliding panel door.

Actualy, I think of it as more a hobby then a game. This is more of a simulation, by far, than it is a game.

I've been to the Ministry of Silly Walks, very nice place. Got a few guys there working by the name of "Bruce." Last time I left 'em they had a funny li'l drunken look about them... they were singin' about philosophy, funny 'nuff.
