When proof reading goes wrong.



  • Spotted in an article about a pilot showing up for work drunk...


     

     Now, I s'pose there's differing limits based on how the sample is taken (breathalyzer v.s. blood sample), but you'd think they'd insert a line or two talking about that.

    theres also the matter with the sentence "for an aircraft is 9 micrograms" cause you then put the limit on the Aircraft not the pilot



  • no, the limit is on driving an aircraft, just like it was driving a car.  Furthermore the first paragraph is talking about breath and the second clearly talking about blood.  



  • The legal limit for driving a car is 35 micrograms and for an aircraft is nine micrograms, [b]the jury were told[/b]

     

    You trusted a lawyer? 



  • [b]the jury were told y'all.[/b]



     

    What? Someone had to be thinking it too...

    I guess the title of the thread held true after all.

    And now, the only thing that can save this thread:

  • Oh, and I like how Steeldragon managed to tag his post under "grammer errors" (sic).  I'll be paying special attention to that category in the future.

    How do you know it wasn't an expert witness?

    I completely missed the grammatical error! 



  • Maybe if you have more than 9 but less than 20 micrograms, you're allowed to fly the plane but someone else has to taxi it to/from the gate.  You know, like if you let your kid drive on the street but not park the car afterward because they might hit the garage.

     



  • If you do what I do, and miss the part about it being a pilot, then this is pretty funny. I thought it was just some guy, possibly a janitor, who showed up drunk, and for some reason they cared about the legal limit for flying a plane. THAT would be a WTF :)
