    I don't have anywhere near the energy it takes to be angry about every one of them.
    Unless you or someone you love is on that damn airplane.

    That's very true.
    However, what does me being angry at everything I find upsetting accomplish?
    Venting on the internet accomplishes nothing except to raise my blood pressure.
    I have lived too long to go through the rest of my life mad at everything.
    Especially since it changes nothing.
    I am not saying he isn't contemptible nor what he did asininely ignorant and without regard for human life.
    All I am saying is: Me being outraged changes nothing.
    My wife and I quit cable tv because all it did was make us angry over things we could not change.
    I watch people on the internet come in fuming over every little thing they can find in the news that is bad.
    It changes nothing.
    Just show me the grace to have found my own solution to dealing with impossible scenarios.
    It's not that I do not care. It's that I have one rule in life. Well, probably more than that. More like 3.
    I do not worry about what I cannot change. What I can change I do my best to do so.
    Anyone else can feel free to go apoplectic over any thing they want to. Go for it. Just don't pop a blood vessel.
    My wife and I will be playing with our grandchildren and helping them learn and how to live.
    That is something I can change.
    Remember:
    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    I am heading back to work tomorrow and I will find out what happened. Probably a loss of cabin
    pressure.

    Typical media hype and spin. I found out this afternoon that the aircraft didn't "plunge" 30m feet, it was an emergency descent that happened over 8 minutes. Bringing it to 10,000 is the norm to get to a livable altitude. I doubt that the masks dropped because of the descent but rather were the sign of the depressurization which precipitated the need to descend.

    Correct! Plunging 30 thousand feet would have most likely ended in a smoking hole. It was
    more like an emergency descent due to a rising cabin altitude. The masks more than likely
    dropped automatically.

    Side note, if you accidentally drop those things on an overnight check you make your fellow
    mechanics real grumpy. Don't ask me how I know.
