yeah, just a bit paranoid.
Not paranoid at all. They even made a TV series out of it.

"Dead like me" I believe.
Ellen Muth plays the a college drop out who is killed by a "de-orbiting" toilet from a Russian space vehicle. Very funny (but dark) series.

Herk,
The loudest thing you can ever hear is silence when you are flying a 130.

Anyone who has EVER flown on or in a C-130 will tell you that "silence" is what you get AFTER you get off the plane.

That is an exact quote from our son Herk. We were at Jacksonville when they came back from Iraq the first time and about 24 of them all came in together with flags flying out of the top of the planes and all engines running full bore and then all at once they all stopped together. The silence was absolutely deafening. Quit an impressive site. Tears flowed freely.

I get 4 130's about twice a week flying over the house pretty low. On their off days 4 chinooks take their place. How low you ask, plates in the cupboard rattle and the floor vibrates!! AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!!!! Dogs don't care to much for it though.
