I never used to, but the last two or three years have been hell for me when flying. When I went to Auckland for the U2 gigs, I thought I was going to fucking die, my head hurt so much on landing.

also landing at lax at night is pretty incredible, the lights go on as far as you can see.
I'm just getting more and more reasons to fly around other countries.

ibuprofen and dramamine. And chew gum so your equilibrium will catch up quicker (gum makes your ears pop).

Actually no, she's at practice for the musical she's in. That's why our date was so early.

As far as i understand, have good ears and eyes. You can learn to fly through universities so that you can do it on a student loan and then spend time getting hours somehow until somebody wants to hire you.

Sounds like fun to me

That would be a headache.

There is no theory of evolution: just a list of creatures the Axver allows to live.

Air New Zealand gives out lollies, so those at least help. I suspect I actually have some sort of problem with my sinuses. Should get it checked out ...
