Best F-35 blog comment … ever

That’s my opinion of this F-35-related comment posted on the blog today by Amicus Curiae, an anonymous, amateur, airpower analyst with a fondness for Latin legal phrases and a healthy sarcastic streak.


The Larry Lawson appointment as F-35 General Manager is a case of Life imitating art. Now the journey to the Dark Side is complete for Anakin Skywalker. He has become Darth Vader.



Ralph Heath: What of the Rebellion? If the F-22 Rebels have obtained a complete technical reading of the F-35, it is possible, however unlikely, they might find a weakness and exploit it.

Larry Lawson: The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.

Dan Crowley: Any attack made by the F-22 Rebels against the F-35 project would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. The F-35 organization is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it.

Larry Lawson: Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a fighter jet project is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Dan Crowley: Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerers ways, Lord Lawson. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebels’ hidden fortress…

[Lawson makes a pinching motion and Crowley starts choking]

Larry Lawson: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Gordon England: Rise my friend.

Larry Lawson: The F-35 will be completed on schedule.

Gordon England: You’ve done well, Lord Lawson. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Amicus Curiae.

Larry Lawson: Yes, my Master.

Gordon England: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to the Dark Side of the Force.

Larry Lawson: As you wish.

Gordon England: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

    And the Latin-lovin’ commenter’s timing was just off – what with May 4 being Star Wars Day (say it as it May the Fourth).

    Why is it a surprise to anyone that this lowsy president of ours would support the building of a structure of death. Obama has done absolutely nothing for this country except make it worse.He is just another BS’er politician

    On the other side of the coin there are people who crave attention and think that if they dress like a celebrity that maybe they will get some of that attention as well although in the vast majority of cases this just isn’t true.

    the only suggestion i can give is not to eat a ton of food at once. like dont stuff yourself, just eat little portions. have a little bit to eat every hour or whenever you get hungry again that way you wont have ne thing in your stomach when/ if you every get sea sick……..HAVE FUN ON YOUR CRUISE!
