Michael Moore is on a starvation diet. Maybe it was just his pounds falling off.

Wish I was there to hear it! No sonic booms in Cleveland! Just the snap of broken tree limbs covered in wet snow.

You sure it wasn’t March 9th? When the Shuttle returns, there is always a double sonic boom as it comes through the sound barrier.........

There was a missile launch around 6:35 p.m. last night from Cape Canaveral.

There was a rocket lift off at the cape last night around six thirty.

My wife and I were driving down the highway and I saw something that looked like a “missle”, a la the thing off the west coast last year. I wanted to stop and take a picture, as I figured it was a plane coming straight at us from Orlando. My brother, a kind of conspiracy nut, and I have had arguments about whether it was a missile or contrail. I was going to take a picture to prove him wrong.

Then we got home and saw on the news that the Air Force launched a spy satellite last night.

I still say it was a contrail.

Not 9 PM, but last night and I am sure it was loud in Melbourne.

Possibly the rumble from the Delta IV launch. Depending on wind direction it could be misinterpreted as sonic booms. The Delta pads are the closest. Didn’t hear anything myself to the south of you.

Days from 9/1/2001 to 3/11/2011 = 3,478.

Total of the numbers 3 4 7 8 = 22

Number of hijackers Bin Laden initially wanted to attack America = 22.

Calling the Pentagon now.

Hearing booms in your head is a indication of Tinnitus.

Do you play drums a lot?

I play steel guitar. Always had to sit in front of the drummer, one side or the other. Always had a ride cymbal goin’. Can’t hear squat! The ringing is much louder than people talk! I declare a fatwa on all drummers

How many chick singers does it take to sing “Crazy”?

Apparently all of them!

As an old flight test type, my humble try:

The T-38s at the cape must undergo a functional flight check each time major flight components are worked on. This check includes a supersonic run. I would imagine that the supersonic flight corridor for Patrick AFB is somewhere just off the coast. Methinks that the atmospheric conditions that day allowed the boom to be heard.

The test pilot must log position and time of each supersonic run and these logs should be avail via base ops.

“How many chick singers does it take to sing “Crazy”?”

And they always wanna sing in some odd key, not guitar friendly. I’d ask “What key?” She’d say “A flat” I’d turn around and whisper to the band, “G.” The girls never noticed! Of course I was the guy that got the band to add an extra beat to the guitar solo in “Achy Breaky Heart,” so we could watch the line dancers collide with one another. Hilarious to watch their total confusion!

Obama playing Golf?

This last Summer we heard two sonic booms about two seconds apart here in western Washington. Found out later that because Obama was in Seattle, they maintained a protected air space over the city, in which a private plane entered. Two fighters scrabbled up from Portland Oregon.

re: My call to the Pentagon. I thought I had their attention until the polite Officer informed me that they call it 911 because the attack was ON 9/11/2001, not 9/1/2001 .... back to the drawing board.....I just KNOW there is a secret message with this...someplace...

Sonic boom-like sounds are not unusual along the East Coast. We have them in Northern Virginia fairly regularly ~ they come mostly from small very localized earthquakes. This last October we had one big enough to crack pavement in fact. We had some in December and February as well but they didn’t break anything.

“There was a missile launch around 6:35 p.m. last night from Cape Canaveral.”

I’m 100 miles to the west of Canaveral and saw the rocket exhaust and wondered what that was. Came from the same spot in the eastern sky for me that I can see shuttle launches from when the sky is clear of clouds.

No sound makes it to me from launches.

I always enjoyed the “I wanna sing ‘Me and Bobby McGee’” girls. If I had recorded every version, I could have been rich selling them to various CIA style organizations world wide as a torture device.

’ ‘Me and Bobby McGee’” girls.’

Oh! Gosh yes! I always seemed to have a 6 nights a week house gig back then. And I always dreaded Sunday nights, because they were time the audience could come up and participate. But, those nights did boost attendance, and that was important for the bar owner, so we played them. Lotsa drunks would hit the stage, thinkin’ they were the greatest!
