3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room

dugancent Re:cram lots of people in a confined space (813 comments)

How do you feel about fat people who spill into the seat next to them? They cry discrimination but as far as i'm concerned, they should have to buy two seats.

dugancent Re:*drool* (181 comments)

You're not the only one. Im chugging along with a c2d from 2008. I can get at least another three years out of this, if not more. Speed brings nothing to table in personal computing anymore (outside of gaming and i'm not and have been a gamer).

dugancent Re:uh-huh (171 comments)

What the insurance gets billed and what they pay is rarely close. If they get billed $1,000,000 for a transplant, they might pay $250,000.
