Well, I was always under the impression that a “7 stroke roll” was a roll completed by a pilot with 7 passengers aboard, where all 7 suffered an incapacitating stroke when they thought they were going to die. The only thing I can’t remember is how many of the 7 actually died from the experience ... or was that a story told by old heads to younger wet-behind-ears novices?

Oh … a quick supplement … I find it curious that anyone would think that a placard, about anything, mounted anywhere on the airplane, would prevent someone from doing anything after that person panicked and responded out of that mentally debilitating state.
