I love planes, I love flying... the idea of heavier than air flight amazes me.
things I don't love:
*Nervous people who "have to get on the plane right now because they just started boarding I know it isn't my isle yet but I have to get on I have been waiting in the airport for 3 hours because I had to leave time to get through security and ..."
*No Blankets or pillows and it's really cold.
*"please turn off all electronic devices"... you mean my iPod is going to crash a multimillion dollar plane? Even the FCC is thinking of letting us use cell phones (though it would be wicked annoying, just let me listen to my music, please, I'm ok without the phones).
*I miss honey roasted peanuts... I know some people are allergic, sorry. The only thing better are these things, love them.
*"In the unlikely event of a water landing..." what? when has a plane EVER and I mean EVER landed safely on the water - why are there life jackets? If we hit the water at 200 miles per hour - I don't mean to be morbid but, come-on, it's like riding a motorcycle with a seatbelt.
*I have mixed feelings about skymall, deep down I think I like it. Such as the following, notice the line "Amazing new technology". I believe they are comparing this to the Segway with two wheels... the "Amazing new technology" must be that third wheel.
Now, what I am really excited about, and I don't know who couldn't be, is Virgin Galactic.
I really really want to go in space, even if it is for only a few moments - and it means I can get to Australia in 40 minutes.
Sing it Frank...
"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.
