Words of people you'll never get to meet

"I'd rather be fishing."
Jimmy Glass, before his execution in 1987

"Am I dying or is this my birthday?"
Lady Nancy Astor, When she woke briefly during her last illness and found all her family around her bedside

"In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first: an attempted suicide."
Christine Chubbuck, An American news reporter. After she said that she pulled a gun and shot herself in the head, live on air during a news bulletin in 1974.

"Tell them, tell them to not evacuate"

The pilot of a Saudia flight in 1980. The plance caught fire just after taking off. The pilot returned to the airport and landed safely with everyone still alive on board. After landing he did not turn his engines off, open any door in the plane or ask for emergency help. It took 23 minutes for firefighters to get to the plane and everyone was dead by then.

It was later revealed that the First Officer failed in his training program and the Flight Engineer was a dyslexic who also confused right with left. The 301 people on board all died on the ground.


"There's one underneath."

" I was looking at that inbound there."



..... Sound of impact ....

"On shit!"

"Easy baby, easy baby."

"What have we got here?"

"We're hit man, we are hit."

"Tower, we're going down, this is PSA."

"Tower: Okay, we'll call the emergency equipment for you."

"This is it baby!"

" Brace yourself.""

Hey baby.. "

"Ma I love you.."
The above was heard in the cockpit of a Pacific Southwest Airlines flight after it collided with another plane and crashed to the ground in 16 seconds, killing 144 people.

I also like "I'm an expert, please don't do this at home".

And of course the famous: "hathee hee el marjala?"

This famous Saudi flight during the Haj season ,some ignorant Hajji tried to make coffee by lighting his kerosene stove that was in his hand luggage ,that caused a fatal fire as the flight seats materials was not fire proof ,As you very well said in spite of the safe landing of the flight ,surprisingly no action was taken by the on board flight crew from inside of the plane !!!!!after the plane burned to the ground killing every one on board ,the emergency crews later reported ,that they found the majority of all dead passengers, right at the front of the cabin specially in the cock pet it was full of dead passengers on top of the flight crew !!! and the captain was found dead at the cabin emergency exit with many dead passengers on top of his body , the forensic report said that the on board fire caused panic among passengers ,Pakistani Hajis flying for the first time in their life , who moved by force to the front trying to escape ,this stampede killed or at least empowered the crew who where stepped under the panicking passengers and cause of death was attributed to :strangulation due to a stampede ,and those who survived the stampede died of smoke inhalation .The reason why the out side emergency crews could not open the plane exits , because it was blocked by the weight of dead passengers trying unsuccessfully to open the gates while the bodies of dead crew where strangled by the power of panicking passengers , I was in Riyadh Saudi Arabia when this tragic accident happened .This is just for the record ,and for your information TWA was the operating company that sold the planes and supervised Saudi Airlines operations .

nadim, thank you very much for this insight. I tried to search more into the details of that tragedy but couldn't find much so your info is really appreciated.

Many people ignore the safety instructions in the beginning of any flight but these measures can really save lives.

Although it is often mistaken for obesity,
cellulite is not actually obesity related because it can also
take place in thin lean women. Article Source: tested cream
is a inexpensive and fast way to remove cellulite.

Also, if you are being treated by a physician for any type
of medical condition, it is important to let the office know.

This paste will be applied directly to the skin tag 3 times a day until the skin tag falls off.
Another available treatment option that can be done at home without a prescription is a topical ointment.
There are a wide range of self tanners to choose from at department stores, but
why not treat yourself to a spray tan at your nearest tanning salon.
