Because high speed rail running at an average speed of 300km/h including stops will get you to the airport in 40 minutes.
15-20 minutes. A bit more if i stop to grab food on the way.

I presume that high speed train will have a vending machine?

Hanger-on was a bit mentally unstable. He would've started firing missiles just for the fun of it. They were extremely quick to reject him.

He now spends his days either working at his parent's shop or getting stoned while having unprotected sex with women who probably have STDs.

Not even time to put you ticket in your wallet

If they wanted to be close...why not just move in together?

ha, probably not. tradition states the bride's family pays for the wedding, so i'm sure they are. they're so naive about it though, they expect their house to just magically sell once he officially gets deployed, and i've read that the housing market here is so bad, homes bought via va loans aren't even selling as fast at they used to. and she told me she'd be in germany i guess while he trains or something, so it's not like they can just keep the house.

Actually, that makes two friends in relationships, since Liam genuinely is in a relationship, as much as I say it's with a blow-up doll or a potato. But I can imagine his kind of wedding would just be going to a prog concert, so that's fine.

Well, we could get some space quickly by wiping out the nasty parts around Huntly and Palmerston North.

Though that coal around Huntly is kind of economically significant, so we better make sure we relocate it somewhere sensible. Like Manukau. Then we can just rip up that hellhole so we can mine the coal!

While waiting in the queue for departure at Frankfurt, all aircraft were advised of a 20 minute delay.

One unidentified aircraft replied "Bullshit".

The tower was irate, and demanded to know which aircraft had sworn over the airwaves.

No-one replied, but after a while, this BA pilot clicks his mike:

Frankfurt Tower, Speedbird 206, Negative on the Bullshit"

Followed by every other aircraft in the queue repeating

Oh, you gotta love people who don't have a clue trying to plan complicated stuff.

Heartbreak's a-comin' for them.
