Under pressure

Pressure! Pushing down on me. Pushing down on you, no man ask for … you’re welcome for the earworm! I admit, I had to google the lyrics, because this is one of the songs that I like to sing along to enthusiastically when I hear it on the radio, but I only know bits and pieces and mumble through the rest. And the phrase “no man ask for” didn’t register for me until now. I guess today’s strip is one of those that could be used in a safety seminar, because indeed, the pressures we all are subject to are manifold and not all of them are directly job related.

Well, pressure is what’s needed to form diamonds, right? But pressure also forms hurricanes or collapses dams, haha! Let me end on this optimistic note and go read the daily news …

    Hey, I thought this was a comic strip, not an aviation safety website.

    Funny one, but it really drives the point home.

    OC, you’d be surprised at how many people write us to ask if they can use our strips in safety classes, haha!

    As an aspiring high school teacher I’ve had thoughts of getting an old racing game arcade cabinet to put in my classroom. One “lesson” I could teach with it is the dangers of distracted driving. Have kid play it first with no distractions, then with their classmates trying to distract them in any way they can come up with and see how much worse they do!

    Hold on (wipes tears from eyes) beautiful. Just, just…it’s about time somebody started dropping real stress on the students.

    The thing I notice is that Jason named his dog Maverick. Usually the pilots ego would make him see himself as Maverick and the dog as his sidekick, so I would have expected Goose or maybe Viper. No way in heck Chuck would ever name his dog Maverick in any case. Seems like Jason still has some room to grow his ego. Maybe that comes when (or if ever) he gets his license.

    Brilliant. Not a CFI but I might use y’all’s approach next time I am a SP for a friend. I bet they’ll love it! 😂
