Apparently, I have gone insane (says my mother)...
I was recently just realizing how long it had been since I was last on a plane so I decided for the hell of it to check out possibly flights. Mexicana has some pretty cheap flights leaving and returning on Wednesday LAX-MEX-LAX so why not fly down and visit the homeland for a couple of hours? :P
Only question is...Would I have any problems Leaving and/or entering Mexico or The US? I've done this route MANY times but never in one day.

You shouldn't have any trouble in the US (save maybe a trip to secondary when you get back, but that's not a huge deal, especially if you don't have bags). Not sure about Mexico-- mileage runs can be very problematic in Canada, but Mexico doesn't take as close a look at many things as Canada does.

Very good to hear. When I was your age, I used to do exactly the same thing, for the same reason ... just to smell burnt jet fuel. I never had any problems with Customs, but then it was a simpler time then.
One of my most bizarre trips was when BA was about to retire the VC-10, so I flew:
YYZ-YMX-PIK-MAN on a BA VC-10
MAN-LHR on a BA BAC-111-500
LHR-JFK on a BA B747-100
JFK-YMX on a OK IL-62
then home on an AC DC-9 YUL-YYZ
... all without laying over ... oh to be a kid again!
