Never said anything was wrong with France. After all, it was the French who gave us the Statue of Liberty. ...
Well, we kept a few copies here as well (not my image) ... there's even one in Poitiers.

Escargot with bleu cheese grilled on a ciabatta bun smothered in lutefisk. Either the path to world domination or to perdition.

was, was? what's wrong with airplanes? haven't been in one for almost a year, it's going to change in 2 days (hopefully)
So, you are going somewhere for the upcoming holidays? Or is this one of those bothersome business trips?

Oh, and welcome back. I haven't seen you here for a while.

I tried reading the first and the last five pages! It gave me a headache...
The headache comes from skipping ahead.

Go back and start from the beginning. You should get to this post by the New Year1

There must be a variety of American voices (Racer, Steve, THE MOD!! - take your pick: . . . . . . . . .
I dunno about having an "American" accent. Five years ago I was in Roanoke, Virginia to pick up some construction equipment. The guy there told me that he new I wasn't from around there, and qualified it by telling me that it was my "accent" that belied where I was from.

He told me that I was Canadian.

I responded that I was as Apple Pie, Baseball and Chevrolet as he, but did it with the perfect renditions of "aboot", "dollars" and finished just about every sentence with "eh?"

Yes, I live about a one hour drive from Vancouver, British Columbia, and go there often. So I guess the accent rubs off on me!

. . . . . . . . . Well, better rule Racer out he is too busy building wings for the best plane in the world)
That's right!

Two hours a day extra and eight hours on Saturday. Gotta get a wing ready to be pulled from the tool. It is scheduled to pull on Sunday evening.

The crew I work with has about 14 hours of work left on it.

I like getting off airplanes.

After my last experince flying I will drive, walk, bicycle, take a boat, or hitchhike before I'll get on another airplane.
The airlines themselves , not the TSA, have made air travel a miserable experience.

Certainly the most enjoyable part.

Amen. I have family in Las Vegas. It is 2,400 miles from my house to theirs. The last two times I have been there, I have driven there and back. Flying has become a real pain. I only do it now if absolutely necessary.
My first airplane ride was in the waning days of commercial air travel. Back then commercial air travel was still somewhat of a novelty, and the airlines went out of their way to make sure the experience was special, and not like riding a bus. Meals were served. Snacks were passed out. Drinks, non-alcoholic and alcoholic alike. There were many things that set the trip by air far apart from that on the ground in a bus.

And it was all part of the cost of the ticket.

Today commercial air travel shares just about everything with riding around on a bus. If there is something served on a plane, you have to pay for it, and usually meals are not part of the experience anymore.

You wanna eat? Bring a sandwich. But it won't be worth eating after the TSA gets done checking it for bombs and such. Want bring along something to wash it down? Oh no, the TSA won't let you carry any liquids aboard.

You wanna avoid the problems and hassle of losing checked luggage and just have carry on stuff? Good luck with that! It all has to fit in that little box at check in. And then the TSA will rummage through your stuff real good first, so we can all be sure that you aren't gonna blow up the damn plane.

And the airlines really don't care about the passengers (customers) anymore. Commercial air travel has lost the magic and allure it had in its early days.

Now passengers are simply riding through the skies in silver buses with wings.

I will drive wherever I need to go when I travel, unless there is no roads or bridges to get me there. And in the rare occasion that I find the need to travel to places that I cannot drive, I will most likely stay home.

If I do fly it will be in a plane that I have the controls of, or I will stay home.

And that is why I will not buy a K3!
