By September 22, 2006Friday Follies

Friday FolliesNot sure how closely you’ve been following the news. Did you know there’s a helicopter pilots strike? Yup, the pilots that fly folks to and from oil rigs in the Gulf have gone on strike.

We know what you’re thinking: “Wouldn’t that be a great job?” Indeed it would. But not so fast — do you have what it takes to be a helicopter pilot?

Here’s a handy little website that’ll check you out on the equipment. BEWARE: this is almost as addictive as that penguin game posted way back in February of ’05. If you are working on Capitol Hill, do not try this now. We need you to get about the business of making sure you pass the energy bill before you go out of session.

But for the rest of you, click here to see if you’ve got what it takes. Click on “Comments”, below and let us know how far you made it. Oh, and don’t expect to get much done for the rest of the day.

Thanks once again to Jen Satrom for supplying some quality Friday Follies fodder.
