    The life of everyone on board depends upon just one thing: finding someone back there who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner.

    I'm just typing here to see if the words " chicken pit " get magically changed to " chicken pit " by the MilePoint software, like in the original post of this thread.

    when i read the original post, i was wondering if they flew over some BBQ place. chicken pit. bwahaha! gotta love automatic language filters.

    years ago, when i moderated a fan message board, we had a great deal of fun setting up the language filters using odd phrases for common curse words. of course it wasn't perfect b/c some use of "curse"/slang words are part of normal speech, not profanity, as in the case of this story. still funny though.

    It's OK if you type it as one word: cockpit as elsewhere in the quoted news story. Or try coque pit rather than chicken pit. (It's been fixed? No it hasn't. MP edited when I saved the changes I made to this post).

    BTW, a chicken is a male chicken, so the words are not synonyms.

    This reminds me of the early days on MP in one of the name games threads when I wanted to name the famous male figure skater Dick Button and MP censored it. Now that I think about it, Dick Van Dyck would have been a more interesting name to try.

    Or people can try to say what they want to say in a foreign language: merde. There was an interesting substitution based on a song (If You See...)in the title of one of the Newsstand blogs about a week ago. Apparently Randy requested (but did not order) the word to be removed from the title, but it stayed in the text of the blog. It's interesting reading.

    maybe there really was a "chicken pit" in the "cockpit". some airlines have smoking pits in their cockpits...fly tarom, and you'll see (or smell).
