I can't be bothered taking the week it'll take to quote you Ax, but those speeds are pretty good compared to my internets on a good day.

Damn you New Zealand!

Bah, that link of yours is video, Ian? My computer seems to not want to play it. What's so fucking scary about a go-around, though? As much as I'm going to mock the train wimps - if they had fallen out, the train would have been doing about 60km/h and they would've been in the underground City Loop, so there isn't much room and you'd pretty much be dead. Whereas on a go-around, it's not as if the plane's doing fucking barrel-rolls with its doors open.

Yeah, that's one thing that makes me thankful I'm not in NZ - sure, in global terms, Australian Internet is the absolute pits and little better than dogshit, but New Zealand Internet is dogshit.

Oh, the train thing is a bit scary considering potential consequences.

I think people are scared about basic plane stuff because they go into the sky. It's voodoo, I'm sure.

Because it's one of my all time favourites.
Got to admit, that was funnier before it was blindingly obvious that it's an alter doing a wind-up job. The thought that somebody would make those posts in full sincerity ...

For what it's worth, most flights I take I'm hoping to go around. I'm told it's great fun!

That would be great.

It could be Rob with a new account. Have we seen him lately?

Yeah, potential consequences that will only happen if you're a moron and don't understand the concept of a handhold. Back before people became scared of everything, it was not unusual for trams to run with people hanging onto the outside. In Dunedin, their cable cars would run with people two or even three deep hanging onto the outside of the tram at peak. I have video of it! People just hung on and enjoyed the breeze. I can't believe this was actually news.

I suppose the one thing about planes - and the reason why I feel safer on trains - is that if a plane does crash, chances are pretty high that everybody on board is going to perish in a very unpleasant way. I figure that if I'm in a train crash, my chances are extremely good of surviving, but if I'm in a plane that goes down, I'm fucked.

Yeah, he's been in the "Larry finished his parts?" thread on WTAHNN, which is worth a read.

I swear, every time I see that, I think it's "Larry finished his pants". What, he took up sewing in the time it took Bono to get back from Africa?

It's safe to say it's all pretty fucking irrational, anyway.
