That reminds me of the *other* advantage to wearing a flight suit one size larger than I need...

Ok, I'll bite. What's the *first* advantage?

More distance between your skin and the flames in a post-crash fire.

[shuddering]

One of the worst stories I ever heard was from my Dad (a Navy destroyer man) talking about conducting boiler exams for the Fleet. When the Navy switched to those Godawful ugly polyester uniforms in the 70s, they apparently didn't think about what happens when polyester meets fire/steam.

Unfortunately, some poor guy found out. As long as I live I will never forget how horrifying that was. And yet when my Dad brought it up, apparently he was "overreacting".

Anyway....

Allow me to voice my amusement that y'all just watched a giant inflatable dog ingest a gorgeous cheerleader and here we are discussing BillT's 27" zipper :p

Ok, so do I dare ask how avoiding becoming post-crash man-b-que remind you of swallowing an entire cheerleader? Why, of course I do!

I've been to a game where they've done that. Only they did it to an usher and the inflatable animal spat back out the guy's clothes.

He then spat back out the usher wearing nothing but his boxers.

Unfortunately, I don't think they could get away with doing that to the cheerleader. :©(

That's easy, spd. The extra room leaves space for the cheerleader should the autopilot go down.....so to speak.
heh

*tsk*

Reading entirely too much into it.

The mascot costume and an oversize flight suit both provide sufficient wiggle room for two occupants of different genders. And to answer your unasked follow-on question, "Why, yes. Yes, I *do* know several female helicopter pilots."

None of whom wear their flightsuits oversized, though...

Sufficient wiggle room for what?

Posted by: Cricket at September 15, 2010 10:30 AM

Wiggling, of course.
