§ Two Strikes You're Out: The "You Are NOT God" Rule

{Rule #3 « Rule #4 » Rule #5}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I promulgate, in my not-so-humble opinion, sensible rules for a society gone mad. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions. But be advised: if your opinions aren't sensible, it's two strikes for you, and you're out of the gene pool.

If I only had some charisma I could rule this world-gone-mad at least as well as any community organizer. Quite possibly better. At least my legal system would be transparent, simple, and swift: if you are a stupid f*ck and do something that doesn't make any sense, your first offense earns you a reasonable penalty that fits your transgression. Your second offense earns you a one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.

Rule #4: The "You Are NOT God" Rule
Related Link » Pilots Say They Were Distracted
“The pilots of Northwest Flight 188 on Sunday told federal investigators that they lost track of time and location -- but never went to sleep -- when they failed last week to respond to air-traffic controllers for more than an hour, according to people familiar with the crew's statements. [...] Over the weekend, Mr. Cole, the first officer, told reporters that neither he nor the captain, Timothy Cheney of Gig Harbor, Wash., nodded off or had any type of argument. "It was not a serious event, from a safety issue" standpoint, the Associated Press quoted Mr. Cole as saying.” [emphasis added]

Oh yeah? I'll be the judge of what constitutes a "serious event", you stupid f*ck! If you are cruising at 37,000 feet with 149 people aboard, and you "didn't respond to frantic calls from controllers -- and text messages from the airline's own dispatchers -- for more than 75 minutes[!!!]", that, mofo, is a serious event.

Penalty for first offense: Suspension of pilot's license for 6 months and forfeiture of pay for period of suspension.

Penalty for second offense, or whining about the first: A one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.
