Interlude: Cap’n Aux’s 3 seconds of Fame



WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CAP’N AUX?

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

This is crazy!  An astute blog reader spotted me in a National Geographic documentary waltzing through security at some random airport (LAX, perhaps?)  Another blog reader, Anthony G., found the vid as a download (since removed.)

SMILE, YOU’RE ON CANDID CAMERA!
(I must be showing off my Thai watch, LOL!)


I am on-screen at the 5:04 mark for all of 3 seconds, LOL!
Ironically, copyright protections keep me from posting a clip, but here’s a couple more screen shots.

B-747-8: Airbus A-380’s newest rival


It’s from the Nat Geo “Mega Factories” series, this episode about the making of the Boeing 747-8.


What I find most fascinating about this is:
—Some random guy was randomly filmed for a random TV show;
—A random viewer/blog reader in another part of the world recognizes said random guy and contacts him.
—Random guy writes a blog about it!


Lesson:  This world is getting smaller—and more public—every day.  (Think, “6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon.”)


IN CONCLUSION:
—ALWAYS—
1.) brush your teeth, 
2.) Wash behind your ears, and 
3.) SMILE! 8^D

‘Cause you never know when you’re going to be on Candid Camera!


Try Googling “National Geographic Mega Factories Boeing 747” if you’re interested.  It’s a fascinating show in its own right and I recommend all you aviation buffs check it out!
