This stuff is pure gold!

Quote:
The worst part of a normal week is any flight attendant on a PA system. When the announcement came, “blah blah We have a very full flight blah blah,” I turned around from first class to address the half-full economy cabin and blurted out, “She always says that bulls$%t!” and then kept all my electronic devices on but hidden and reclined my seat back just slightly so as to not be noticed.

Since they don’t serve Hendricks on UA, I brought my own. When interrogated about it, I answered the flight attendant’s question with an utterly meaningless “Do YOUR Duty for Free.” I slurred something to my neighbor about this blog, and then blacked out until we landed in Chicago for a connection.

I used to be a subscriber to the blog and the guy knows his stuff and definitely funny, but I found it a bit too repetitive and eventually disrespectful (first it is funny disrespectful, but then it sinks in). I guess I am too sensitive :roll:

This one is a bit less facetious, fairly accurate perspective on what MC is like:

Yeah, it's got some funny content -- basically the consulting version of http://www.leveragedsellout.com. I contemplated writing up a contribution once (since I seem to have a reputation at my current and previous firms for being "innovative" with our travel policies :-D), but never got around to do it.

Sadly, I'm guilty of leaving my ipod on during takeoff/landing and not getting caught. I should probably stop doing that :P

Same here isa. I've even left my blackberry on a few times (usually not intentionally). Amazingly the multimillion dollar state of the art aircraft did not seem to suffer any adverse consequences from my $100 piece of consumer electronics.

Mental note to myself...

NEVER, EVER ride an airplane if Jerz is on board...

Not taking any chances.

We can only assume that GoBruins did not design the airplane you were flying in.


Quote:
"Sometimes [interference] appears, usually it does not," says Victoria Day, a spokesperson for the Air Transport Association, a trade group for U.S. airlines. "It may present pilots with an annoyance, or it may threaten safe operation of the airplane. During takeoff and landing when the airplane is closer to the ground, there is no room for error, and airlines take every precaution to ensure that no interference occurs."
