    Sometimes, the direct approach is best....

    Whenever we have a scout troop out to the airport for a flight day, I always bring up the original Raiders of the Lost Ark scene where the big German guy gets sliced and diced by the propeller. Even the younger kids have seen the movie, being boys the blood spray really makes a memorable impression, and so it really hits home with them about the realities of running around without paying attention.

    People should heed this warning with their pets as well. Just last week I started my plane's engine, after the customary "CLEAR", seconds after the engine came to life, I saw a dog near my plane. God only knows where he was and where he came from. Smartly for him the prop blast scared him away. All I need would be for sparky to get ground up into hamburger and some little kid becomes devastated when he finds out his best friend was chopped to pieces.
