I look at this forum as a conversation amongst aviation people. Like sitting around the crew lounge or in the cockpit on a longer leg. Throw out a topic and have a discussion. Goggle will get you 5000 responses and 4550 of them will be dated, irrelevant or flat out wrong. Who wants to sort through all that crap when you can ask an experienced guy sitting right there?
Looking at a few responses here you get some good info and perhaps a good laugh. Too bad you also have to hear from some tools who can only tell you to google it, or belittle you for not knowing.
