Yes, the McDonald's case. The woman in question received 2nd degree burns on her genitals. I wouldn't be too pleased about that if it were my jewels. She proved her case to a jury. If it were frivolous, the jury would have ruled against her. It ain't perfect, but it is how the system works.

As for this case, many women find that kind of stuff extremely offensive. What are the statistics? One out of four women in this country has been sexually assaulted or raped? What is harmless fun to you may cause extreme anxiety to someone who has been the victim of a violent crime. It is a man's world, but it shouldn't be a high school boy's world.
Sure they would, people like to award money, just to say they made corp. pay. Jury's are wrong a lot, OJ, Robert Blake. Most smoking cases(people saying they didn't know what a cig would to them, heres a billon)

Ironic, that there is a small page on her website called "Speech without limits". I guess she is for speech without limits, unless she gets a payout from it.
My initial assessment proves correct. She got her payday from the man, and checked out to smoke dope with her patchouli-reeking buddies at another Peace March. Consequences be damned. More evidence for why Western civilization is dying.

Another victory for the United HR department, that's for sure.

I doubt use the term likely, but what a ********************ing ********************.

I'd kick that chick square in the baby maker.

The article does not say what the case settled for. I heard it settled for a pack of smokes, a promise not to sue United anymore and a signed copy of the Bay Minette Aviation 2009 Calendar:

They have a government fuel contract and when you fly in there you would think this was the only place the US Navy and Army can get gas in the lower 48. They stay busy. Just try not to get run over by a formation of T34's if you go there.

Free Pizza.
Hell yez aeh!

Look...I heard what really happened was she was trying to activate the stickshaker to pleasure herself but it didn't work so she took the cap off to investigate the wiring. And there just happened to be porn in there. :laugh:

Look at the bright side: a lot of FO's moved up a notch on the seniority list.

...AND got rid of an "abrasive" in-duh-vidual in the coc..., er, FLIGHT deck. Everyone left at UAL is probably better off for it.

And, yes, all hidden works of art are graded.

When i was at Mesa our POI who was an older lady was giving a line check on one of our crews and as she was flipping through the MEL book she came across a neatly placed picture hole punched and everything of a chick receiving the "Backcourse Aprroach"..Needless to say our POI was not amused, but we never heard anything from the company about it.

hahahahahah. that there is funny...
When I was at Mesaba, the first five years on the saab, the cockpits were filled with porn. A regular part of the day was the search....
Got to MEM as a captain, and learned who was placing most of it. You guessed it, a female FO.

Company got on the mechanics to clean it up. Seems a few people complained. Me, why, I agree with the feminists, porn demeans!!!
Now that I'm once again a lowly cfi b****, should I place porn in the cessna's to motivate students?

A quote from her web page says it all.

As a woman pilot who worked in an otherwise male-dominated airline industry,

You make the call.

She should've used the word "female" in that context and sentence. What kind of writer is she?

Anyone want to take a gander that those are probably her personal friends that reviewed her book?

Women should not be so far to praise someone like this. Too many women say they want to be treated the same as men, but when they do, they complain about it. The last thing any woman should want is a cockpit where there is no humor, or a man treats treats the entire flight like a sterile cockpit or doesnt invite the female crew member out for drinks with the others for fear of accidentally saying the wrong comment.

So why settle out of court? Would a normal jury of her peers necessarily rule in her favor? I think not. Minimally, make her prove her case. I don't understand this strategy to fold like a house of cards and pay through the nose. Better to go down fighting for what you actually believe in than cave to a shyster.
