i don't know whether to feel pride or shame. solely from an architectural and operational standpoint, there are some brilliant airports around.

O'Hare is such a shithouse. Most American airports are shithouses, but at least some have attempted to upgrade lately. These airports were mostly in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, etc.....Zurich was in there, so was Auckland....they had movie theaters and museums and, just, shit to do. And most had one terminal, which is key.

"No one has to drink"? Well, yeah.

I don't anyone who whines about driving like they're forced into it. Just the nature of living out here that almost everyone I know has had to come to terms with one way or another. Some are better about it, some are worse. But I know very few people who NEVER drive while intoxicated.

There's a difference between intoxicated and legally intoxicated. Have I drove after drinking? Yeah. I've done it while drinking. But I don't think I've ever been a threat to myself or anyone else.

maybe because i use it all the time, but i'm never overly impressed by auckland. they clearly didn't use the new terminal extension (a 15 minute walk from ANYTHING) or the domestic terminal (have to transfer to a domestic flight? it's a 15 minute walk in the rain that way). plus it's always, always under construction.

Yeah, but the STDs alone still make you a pretty dangerous individual.

A little bit, yeah. But only because I was trying to find my aunt and it took us a good 10 minutes of confused phone calls to realize that there were two terminals. "Meet you by the baggage claim? i AM at the baggage claim!"

I was there for a cousin's wedding. It was hot. And my first real exposure to Texas.

(I don't count the "holy shit, drive us as fast as you can out of this stinky, ugly shithole covered in cows as far as the eye can see" road trip north through west Texas as a real visit to Texas.)

You don't just pay your $4 for Lance's Mom once. You pay the rest of your life.

(Insert Texas exposure joke here)


But seriously, talk shit about West Texas as much as you want. It's shitty.

Our stop at a gas station in Amarillo was about as much time as I wanted to spend there.

That's all I've done there too, at 3 AM during that crazy trip in May. My famous ex is from there. Explains a lot, no?

We left Ruidoso, NM in the morning, drove west with a stop in Roswell for alien-themed jocularity, hit Texas and pretty much had the pedal to the metal until we were safely over the border of the Oklahoma panhandle.

Then we stayed the night in Liberal, Kansas.

It was kind of a weird trip.

The fact that you prefer any part of Oklahoma to the shittiest part of Texas makes me sad.
