An Airbus 380 is on its way across the Atlantic. It flies consistently at 800 km/h at 30,000 feet when suddenly a Eurofighter with a Tempo Mach 2 appears.
The fighter jet's pilot slows down, flies alongside the Airbus and greets the pilot of the passenger plane by radio: "Airbus, the boring flight, isn't it? Now have a look here!"
He rolls his jet on its back, accelerates, breaks through the sound barrier, rises rapidly to a dizzying height, and then swoops down almost to sea level in a breathtaking dive. He loops back next to the Airbus and asks, "Well, how was that?"

The Airbus pilot answers: "Very impressive, but watch this!"
The jet pilot watches the Airbus, but nothing happens. It continues to fly straight at the same speed. After 15 minutes, the Airbus pilot radios, "Well, how was that?

Confused, the jet pilot asks, "What did you do?"

The Airbus pilot laughs and says, "I got up, stretched my legs, walked to the back of the aircraft to use the washroom, then got a cup of coffee and a chocolate fudge pastry.

The moral of the story is: When you're young, speed and adrenaline seem great. But as you get older and wiser, you learn that comfort and peace are more important.

This is called S.O.S.: Slower, Older and Smarter.

It is dedicated to all my friends who, like me, as seniors, now realize that it's time to slow down and enjoy the rest of the trip.
Welcome back to the thread with a good one @Corwin;

Adriamycin is a drug used for chemotherapy of some cancers.

Which reminds me: Urea is a main component in urine. It's the end product of breaking down amino acids. Many skin cream and mosturres contain urea, but for some reason they (the companies) prefer to use another word for it, "carbamide". And you won't find commercials claiming "now containing stuff found in urine".
