PS: While not malapropisms, I like changing words around to see how people will react. Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr, a long-passed US Supreme Court justice stated that free speech did not include, for example, using it to cause panic. Loosely quoted, he said that ‘[one] can’t cry out “fire!” in a crow...Jump to post
Solution : slow down world population growth and need for more travel and current facilities will meet the demand without expanding or building new airfields.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the Minestrone yet...
Apart from that, alot of the "simple" soups are just great soul kitchen, like a creamy pea soup, a cabbage soup or a spring vegetable soup.
In 1997 I flew VIE-KUL-MEL on a Lauda B777. I'm not sure anymore if we had an additional stop at SYD. ... Lauda didn't take delivery of their first 777 until September 1997, unfortunately the above mentioned schedules (Jan 89 and Oct 96) are the only International timetables on departedflights in t...Jump to post
The Vienna route was originally started by Lauda Air (the original iteration, not niki or Laudamotion), and was flown on 763s via BKK IIRC - it was Lauda’s first route, as the Austrian Government hadn’t wanted to give the new Airline traffic rights to go up against the government owned OS. When Lau...Jump to post
I'm not familiar with the latest hifi but I would not limit myself to only one manufacturer. They should be compatible anyway, or aren't they? I just replaced a 20 year old Kenwood CD player with an older Technics player and am blown away with the even better sound... As for the speakers - this is o...Jump to post

I got talked into seeing Ford VS Ferrari my husband picks one time, I pick the next time. I was pleasantly surprised that a racing movie could be so good. Great True story.

I don't know why but this story just reminded me of another big disaster which is the true reason for the National Day of Mexico, the Sinko de Mayo: A little known fact is that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condi...Jump to post
I had a co-worker who produced every sound a human body is able to make during his workday (except for farts, thank heavens!) - slurping, breathing, rambling, burping, tapping on the desk, you name it. He even moaned while eating which led me to believe that his sex life was extremely limited. He to...Jump to post
I missed my first take-off ever the other day because the queue was so long at LHR that I fell asleep waiting and the A321Neo took off gently enough that I only woke up at top of descent ! 10 years and almost 12,000 posts and you flew in a plane for the first time the other day? Seriously? :eyepopp...Jump to post

Not an oil rig, but a wind turbine with a public observation desk:
OK, some points: - More MP does not automatically equal better quality (and that's what you're looking at, right?). Having said that, 20 MP is decent enough for almost every case. - Birdpicturing is one of the more ambitious exercises in amateur photography. Besides a big focal length you also need ...Jump to post
Well, these women were lucky that they are currently in a non-grabbable orbit. I'm sure they preferred to talk with him from a safe distance instead of having to pay a visit to his office.

How in the hell does one get "Wooster" out of Worcester? I had assumed it was pronounced war-kester. Ask the locals....

I work in the renewable energies industries. I haven't had a tie or a business suit in ten years. And I love it. A tie just keeps your blood from flowing into the brain. 95 % of those I work with have no ties, either. (The remaining 5 % were bankers, you guessed right...) Lately I had a job intervie...Jump to post
Scanning is a lot of work and effort. If you have a large quantity of slides, it may make more sense to send them out to a professional scanning house (they still exist!) versus investing the money into a slide scanner.

Great match between France and Argentina! France dominated the first half and then Argentina hit the pedal to the metal and lost the game by a few centimetres with the last kick.

The link doesn't work for my region. Which building are you talking about?
As a former SA resident (for three years) and proud wearer of a Springboks jersey when I exercise, my sympathies are for them, of course.

Well, to be fair, most regional FA's tend to whine more about doing their job over their mainline counterparts even though they voluntarily signed up to be a FA.
If somebody needs to work while he is eating he's got some serious and bigger problems than having to decide if sitting in J vs. F is better or worse. I guess it depends on your line of work.

How relevant is the work space issue for how many of us now work? For most of us our work now just consists of a tablet or laptop.
