“And don't get me started on the drunks that stand in the aisle loudly chatting with their co-workers seated in a different part of the plane. There was a guy on my flight last night who kept bumping his posterior in my face while doing this; one more time and I might have planted my Bic fine point in his stinking gluteus maximus.”

“Or if I'm lucky enough to have been upgraded to first class on a long flight across the US a passanger there thinking it's a fine dining restaurant. Or on coach and the teenager behind you puts his foot, that stinks to high heaven, on the back of you arm rest. Or last week a woman decides to take pics. of her son, blocking the aisle while the plane was boarding. I bet Neantherthals have better manners. LOL !!”

“What planet are you traveling on? I travel every week, and trust me, there is a liberal supply of cell phone screamers in every airport, and on every plane, right up til the moment flight attendants have to angrily tell them to shut them off for the third time.”

Shirley Ujest on Nov 22, 2013 at 11:54:08

“Yes, I travel often as well and see the people making their last minute phone calls before they get on a flight and are completely out of touch for 2 or 3 hours.

If you'll notice, airports and the few minutes before planes take off are two of the few places you see that kind of behavior. I'll leave it up to your stellar powers of deductive reasoning and see if you can figure out why that would be.

(Hint: It's because people are getting ready to be completely out of touch for 2 or three hours)

It's pretty simple really. You'll see the same kind of behavior on planes as you see in general in the rest of the world. The amount of people talking loudly on cell phones will be whatever you experience now in a restaurant or on a bus, but actually probably far less as people generally don't want other people sitting next to them to be privy to an entire private conversation.

As you so eloquently point out in your post, people are now running around in airports and right up until the plane leaves the surface of the earth because they will be out of touch while in the air. That won't be a factor in the future, a future that you most certainly will have to come to terms with.

Now go put out your hair, you're going to hurt yourself.”

“Somebody needs to explain to me how on earth the partisan bickering can be made any worse than it already is, and has been, ever since Republicans declared war on the Obama presidency literally the day he was inaugurated?”

“It started even before that. The day he was elected, republicans said that "he won't get anything passed." I think it was Boehner who said it.”

“Here in purple Washington State, ALL voting is done by mail.  You get your ballot about 20 days before the election and you fill it out in the comfort of your home, on your own schedule, with all the information you need to make an informed decision.  You then drop it in a secure ballot box, usually outside your local library, or mail it in.  No craziness at a polling place, no limits on when you can or can't vote. Works just fine, for Republicans and Democrats alike. 
So I'll turn the question back to you; why does it have to be so damn complicated and difficult, with rules that change every election cycle, to vote in the bright red Republican controlled states?
I think we both know the answer to that one.”
