Hero pilot exposed as an androidBy Shlomo Garcia
DANVILLE, CALIF.--There’s a good reason why hero pilot Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenburger III acted so cool and collected as he landed crippled U.S. Airway Flight 1549 in the icy
“With no engine power, obstacles like bridges and boats to avoid and the fate of 155 people hanging in the balance, no human could face such a potential disaster so calmly,” says aviation historian Aileen Wright. “It took nerves of steel -- literally!”
As the Cosmic Chronicle reported on Feb. 1, geese trained by terrorists disabled the Airbus A320 by flying into the engines. And cockpit tapes of Sullenburger during the Jan. 15 crisis reveal him casually noting that he’d lost thrust to both engines and the nearest landing strip was too far away to reach with no power.
“We’re going to be in the
Voice analysis expert Jim Larynx says: “There is absolutely no element of panic, or even stress, in his voice. He might as well have been telling his wife, ‘That pot roast sure hit the spot.’”
Further investigation has revealed a shocking photo of the Sullenburger android being assembled at an undisclosed location. And Sullenburger may not be the only airline pilot to be secretly replaced by a robot.
“Let’s face it,” says Wright, the great-grand- daughter of aviation pioneer Orville Wright. “Most airplane crashes are caused by human error, so it makes sense airline officials would want to minimize that risk by removing the human element.”
When contacted by the Cosmic Chronicle, Sullenberger’s wife Lorrie was shocked to hear that her husband was an android, though she did admit that his body sometimes made mechanical noises.
Federal Aviation Administration investigators have begun to screen all commercial airline pilots to determine if other androids have infiltrated their ranks.
“I think we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg,” says acting FAA director Winston P. Wingfield, fulfilling his government obligation to speak in cliché. “Right now, we have more questions than answers.”
But Sullenburger’s distraught wife Lorrie has only one question: “If this Sully is an android, where’s my real husband?”
FDA OKs drug with no side effectsBy
Although the proprietary blend of chemicals that comprise the new drug, Placebix, are a carefully guarded trade secret, Pfizer reveals it’s similar in makeup to the pills given as placebos to subjects in medical studies.
Reps from the drug’s producer, pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKlineMerckJohnson&Johnson, claim that Placebix is not only completely safe but also has the potential to cure any disease.
“In every study ever done, there’s a percentage of people who are cured by the placebo,” explains Monica Moonie, the company’s director of marketing. “Based on that finding, we’ve created an ingestible therapy for virtually any ailment that works up to 23 percent of the time.”
Despite the harmless nature of the drug, consumer watchdog groups are outraged over the government's approval of it.
“This is another victory for Big Pharma,” blasts Fred Stump, spokesman for the Consumer Rights of America Panel (CRAP). “It gives the drug companies the right to go ahead and sell what are, in essence, sugar pills for the price of prescription medication.”
Placebix is expected to retail for about $2 a pill to cover development costs and the company's international marketing campaign.
Analysts predict that the drug manufacturers will profit a scant 1,200 percent on their new product, low by industry standards. But what they lack in price-gouging profits they expect to make up for in volume.
Says Moonie: “There’s a Placebix patient born every minute.”
The toxins we absorb from our water, air and food embed themselves in body fat. This causes cells and organs to become sluggish and lose efficiency, leaving us more susceptible to disease!
