Heard a beautiful story today. Some say that the word "chutzpah" means the aircraft fuel. There was an Israeli pilot who was on a mission once and he ran out of fuel. He was flying above the Mediterranean and he prepared to crash when he noticed the American aircraft carrier underneath. He immediately took course towards it and radioed that he's landing there, no matter what they say. Once landed, the US officer in charge ran towards him livid in rage. "Who gave you the right to land the plane on American ship?!" he screamed. To which the pilot responded: "American? From up above it looked just like one of ours!". Which showed that he didn't _completely_ run out of chutzpah.
