And…?

Really I mean it’s nice to know that but is this like a plug for it?

Hey, be nice to this guy. His poor computer has no punctuation keys. Also, his shift key can only capitalizes the letters A, C, D, E, H, I, L, M, S, and U.

Therfore, instead of giving carpetrug my keyboard, I’ll give it to cmr1993 because he needs it more. (You remember carpetrug - his keyboard doesn’t have an apostrophe.)

Don’t forget the B and the R. He full-on capitalized them with the others you mentioned!

Interesting post though, even though after reading it, I still don’t know where tocumen - er, I mean Tocumen is. After googling it, it appears to be in Panama!

Anyway, my airport (KIAD)

is bigger than your airport! Mine has THREE runways (with a fourth one being built)! The shortest one is longer than your longest! :stuck_out_tongue:

Random aviation fact of the day?


#7

Central America.


#8

Panama City to be exact


#9

I thought Panama City was in Florida?


#10

The capital city of Panama and the vacation town in Florida share the same name.


#11

It was a joke…

I know the difference between Panama City and Panama City Beach, FL


#12

Not only is there a Panama City Beach but also a Panama City in Florida.

Here’s an interesting tidbit about the naming of the city:

The City of “Panama City” was formed in 1905, when the United Fruit Company of New Orleans went on strike. The Vice President of United Fruit decided to relocate his company to a port easily accessible to his most important Central American connection… specifically, Panama City, Panama.

In an effort to attract this desirable source of new jobs, local business leaders named the unincorporated area, Panama City. The bid for United Fruit was lost to Tampa, Florida, but the name, “Panama City,” stuck.

This, and other details about the Panama City area, can be found at tripsmarter.com/panamacity/history/index.htm

I don’t take that kind of stuff for granted on internet forums anymore. :wink:

I mean, someone on a.net “announced” the new A380 in a thread there a few days back. :smiley:


#14

cmr1993’s post was fine with me. What’s wrong with a plain informatiional posting now and then?

As you all point out, proper punctuation and capitalization won’t hurt.


#15

But what’s the point? Maybe if it was new information, but I can spend a minute and a half looking up the same stuff myself.


#16

“plain informational posting?”

My cat’s breath smells like cat food.


#17

That’s my swingset, and that’s my sandbox. I’m not allowed to go in the deep end. And this is where I met the leprechaun … He told me to burn things.
