One day, many moons from now, people will look back at this period in history the same way we look back at Nazi Germany today and wonder how it was possible for a group of people who consider themselves so enlightened and morally superior to everyone to condone the dehumanizing and wholesale slaugh...Jump to post
Wanna decide for women a minimum of tampon usage per month as well? When my wife miscarried it was followed by a very heavy period. Perhaps the abortion cops should monitor pad use and prosecute accordingly. And when my wife miscarried we were as emotionally devastated as if we had lost a baby that...Jump to post
You don't trust Zeke? Then here is another evidence. Cathay is constantly flying A359s on IAD-HKG route. I am not disagreeing with Zeke. CX A359 has only 280 seats whereas DL has 306 seats. I am not saying DL A359 can't fly LAX-SYD if they decides to block seats. I said it can't with full passenger...Jump to post

Having GPS is nice..but it certainly is much more comforting having a strong geographical sense when you find yourself up against such situations.

Truly sad. I read in one of the reports (I was trying to find the link to it to provide here but now I can't seem to find it so maybe someone else can confirm) that the terrorist(s?) didn't have to choose New Zealand but that it was "as good as any other western nation" with similar views...Jump to post
Sixteen floors and almost 900,000 square feet for the home office employees? I seem to recall a fire broke out at the home office about 10 years ago. Only "essential" employees could go to work for a 3 week period with everyone else told to stay home. Funny, planes still flew, operations ...Jump to post
AKL Auckland. They're planning on building a tram though....in ten years. What a joke. This is mostly inaccurate So, what's the accurate version??? Light rail (a tram, but bigger - more frequent than trains) is due to be starting construction not much after 2021 but is currently facing an annoying ...Jump to post

A rollercoaster is being operated by a bored minimum wage teen. An airliner is not.
I used to fly gliders without a second thought whereas I'm still scared of rollercoasters, I put it down to knowing I had a pretty big stake in not messing up.
That's how I rationalise it.
What is this obsession of yours with AOC? I seriously doubt that you live in her district. (Don't you spend most of your winters in Las Vegas?) Is it just your anti-Democrat stance? Fear of a stong woman who won't just sit down, shut up, and smile politely. A dinosaur, wonders why it's still on the...Jump to post
