    The difference between Right and Correct, in my region of the country...
    Right: as apposed to Left.
    (Right: as apposed to being wrong.)
    Correct: It is Correct to drive on the Right side of the road, because it's the Right of way and the Correct way to drive so you're not Right in the path of a mighty big truck coming at you, and it's easier because the majority of humanity is Right handed and resting your left hand on steering wheel with predominant Right hand available for writing or texting while driving, shifting, hugging ladyfriend/wife/fondling or slapping kids in back seat is easier.

    Right: It's the Right thing to be driving on the left side of the road to pass someone or avoid a deer but, not necessarily Correct to stay in that lane as a two lane road will provide apposing traffic in their own Correct lane.
    Correct: It is Correct to drive on the Right hand side of the road, In the USA.

    Right: You are not in the Right frame of mind saying that, although you may be Correct with the information.
    Correct: You are Correct it isn't the Right way to be Corrected Right away.
    Incorrect: It is Incorrect to respond that way but, the Right thing to do.

    Hope that Corrects the Incorrect uses of words that would not seem Right if wrong words were used to Correct Righted phrases which were left behind in incorrect places right there.

    so, what's the difference between "right" ad "right"?

    i'm not asking about difference between starboard side and correct thing.

    why most people on the planet decided that "right is right" ("starboard is correct")?

    Right is enforceable.
    Correct is sensible.

    You will hear and read Yankees and other nasty English Speaking Peoples, all the time, using the word "right" or "rights." Often they are in process of excusing a horror, horrors or perpretating one or more unnacceptable [to everyone else] behaviors or attitudes, like conquering, raping, bombing, breaking. Et al.
    Is my presumption correct?
    A yankee will say, if he is having the shit beat out of him by his town's or state's or nation's cops, that his "rights were violated." The cops, after kicking the shit out of him will bind him and will inform him he has the "right to remain silent." [as if, eh?] He has the "right to keep and bear arms" and "the right to defend himself." He has "marriage rights," "human rights" and "property rights" and he can excersize his" right to freedom of opinion" and "right of passage."

    When I was a school boy, we had a 'Language Arts' teacher from Grades 1 through the end of Grade 5. He used to use the cane on any of us when we spouted nonsense. Yep.
    I guess he felt as strongly as I do about doubletalk, new-speak, ambiguity, vagurey, gabble, blabbing, blurting and bullshitting.
    You will notice I use a lot of cursing in my writing? Well, I use cursing and slang etc in spite of that teacher and his cane, not because of him.
    No am Sane? You dig? Catch that? You jive?
    Fuck.

    I am sorry I used nonsense words to you exec, but then again, much of what you write in here is ambiguous, doubletalk and baffling too, eh? I am just using my right to butcher a language as you are your right to be a crafty, doublefaced commie bastard...
    [tongue in cheek, foo, tongue in cheek]
    [tongue in cheek means what, exactly?]

    1. This crocodile does live all alone.

    2. This is a live crocodile.

    I like you. You are clear enough. You are well thought. Well educated and well read. Interesting fellow.
    My English is terrible too. I am a victim of my culture and it's miss-conseptions.

    Where are the times when people would come online on WBChat to see who'se online, and join if they saw one of their buddies on.

    I'm guessing all the buddies have since long left FH :/

    Most times I'll log into WBChat just so I'm on the list hoping people will log on. Most people I think just bring up the launcher, see no one on and leave. People should just log into the WBChat and loiter so others will log on and we can start the fun!

    I will leave plane circling on the ground at about 30mph on a remote field with 100% fuel while I am away from keyboard.

    On the roster command, looks like you are flying and might make people more willing to stay and fly.

    Jeeps good for that too.
