I chickened out and decided not to buy the Milwaukee electric grease gun.  I already have the batteries and charger even, but I just don't have that many things that need grease.

Itís worth it if you do gain stuff that needs greased frequently, even a compact tractor if for nothing else it encourages frequent greasing due to the ease of use. When itís time to repack hydraulic cylinders a well greased loader means the pins almost fall out when taking them apart. Too many of our customers donít make the operators grease properly and we end up having to burn pins out with a thermal lance. 

A good alternative if one has air is a $75 Lincoln pnuematic grease gun those also work very well.

Looks pretty normal to me.  I assume the runway is long and the plane is light.  We fly in cold weather and land on snow/ice every winter.

The difficulty depends on the weather: winds and visibility are the biggest concerns there.

The Airbus has a minimum temperature they are approved to operate in.  Antarctica probably gets colder than that on a regular basis.

I am guessing a delivery man found it faster to throw the packages away rather than deliver them.
Ummm . . . wouldn't it be a big red flag to the employer if a lot of Bubba's assigned packages were reported as lost?

. . . It was suggested (no proof) that national SA might have, like so many corporations and large organizations, hired a "diversity and inclusion" executive that needed something to do.
Reminds me of when the local rag still had a website where people could debate one another and the paper's editorial writers. One weekend the topic was how to save money in local schools - I wrote a short note the gist of which was concentrate on academics - and start by firing every employee who had the word "diversity" as part of their job title or job description. To the horror of staffers, this opinion gained several times more support than the contrary opinion, which was that we needed more diversity pros.

Because of this and many, many other instances where the readership and editorial staff parted ways, the paper discontinued their forums.

Because the news story did not mention a crashed FedEx semi adjacent to the packages, I wonder how they got there.

I am guessing a delivery man found it faster to throw the packages away rather than deliver them.

Oh wow!  You are Santa in the picture?!  I have though that would be fun to do in retirement.  How do you like it?

I bought a .44 Vaquero for $200. Should not have more than doubled my money selling it, but I did. Classy and fun to shoot guns.

^^^And the prices!  Ever since they were released, I have been trying to order one, or to find one at a LGS: the LCRx 3" .357.  I have never found one in stock or seen one in the flesh, and the MSRP is $ 800 (!).  The MSRP for a Vaquero is just under a grand. I remember not that long ago when Ruger was considered the value brand.

Perhaps our resident Airbus expert can comment on this: a walk in the park or a sphincter-tightening ride to the gates of a frozen Hell?
