Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

french are practical and damn silly Basterds


I believe this will be the result of a French-led investigation into the tragic incident that is Air France 447.

After more than two weeks of analyzing flight records, cockpit radio transmissions, and floating ocean debris, investigators will determine that the tragic events of Air France Flight 447 were in all likelihood caused by a “giant plane crash.”

This shocking discovery, will be announced during a planned press conference that finally sheds light on what took place in the early hours of June 1st, and answers a number of puzzling questions about the mysterious mid-flight disaster.

I can picture the actual opening announcement:

“We can now say, with complete confidence, that Air France Flight 447 was brought down by an unscheduled and unforeseen plane crash,” lead French investigator Michel Villon stated. “Indeed, a survey of all the evidence indicates that this terrible tragedy was the direct result of a large airliner falling suddenly from the sky, dropping 30,000 feet, and colliding with the Atlantic Ocean at extremely high speeds.”

So French – and, so very practical.

This is not me poking fun at a tragedy. However, this is me poking fun at the French (whom I admire more than I despise – and, you must have a love/ hate relationship with the French to fully appreciate them).

We probably won’t ever know what actually occurred because the planes back box is deep in cold waters. Or, until someone makes the movie that is then referenced in Wikipedia, and the mythology takes on a life truth of it’s own.

This is me setting the stage for a post I am preparing around Lance Armstrong, The Tour de France and, of course, the French (and, dopey doping officials in particular) who recently stated that they plan on “…paying very special attention to Lance Armstrong”, but they will be fair (as long as they finally succeed around their assinine efforts in tormenting, distracting and discrediting Armstrong).

“First, France’s sports minister says Armstrong will be “particularly monitored” in anti-doping checks at the Tour de France this year.”

You can read more about his here, and watch a video as well!

To know the French is to love the French. To love the French is to hate the French. Once you have mastered hating the French, you know them well enough.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
