you know, when it comes to reposts. it takes more energy to whine and bitch in the comments than it does simply to skip over the content. maybe someone hasnt seen this and they appreciate it being reposted. either way is it the end of the world when someone posts something hey may not know was already posted here?

I gave it a thumbs up because it's funny, but I suspect this was originally a military joke that's been circulating for some time and later attached to Fed Ex. An IFF (Identify Friend or Foe) and a targeting radar would not be installed on a fed ex aircraft.

These are funny but fake.
