Al Gore Airplane travel is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo.
Al Gore Airplane travel is nature's way of making you look like your passport photo.
Al Boliska Airline travel is hours of boredom interrupted by moments of stark terror.
Sloane Crosley Air travel is the safest form of travel aside from walking even then, the chances of being hit by a public bus at 30,000 feet are remarkably slim. I also have no problem with confined spaces. Or heights. What I am afraid of is speed.
Bruce Schneier Air travel survived decades of terrorism, including attacks which resulted in the deaths of everyone on the plane. It survived 9/11. It'll survive the next successful attack. The only real worry is that we'll scare ourselves into making air travel so onerous that we won't fly anymore.
