This list came to me as an email pass-around, and to be honest, it's the second or third time I've seen it. Nevertheless, I thought it would befun to post here. I wonder which of
these would seem mysterious to people outside of aviation? Probably the same ones that make flight attendants laugh the most! I swear, if flying is not my bread and butter of the current I wouldn’t have guess the feeling.
