Why? Why???

We get Trump and the Dutch get this guy: http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/18/europe/netherlands-king-willem-alexander-klm-pilot/index.html

Is there some obscure clause somewhere in international law that might allow us to switch leaders?

Re: Informe de vuelo con fotografías de jetes, Tres DeMayo, 2017

That's good!

Because it's apparently been determined that we can fix all our country's problems by shipping everyone here on an H-1B visa back where they came from. That of course is not to be confused with the H-2B visa which is what all the workers at Mar-a-Lago have. :roll:

I'm sorry, but based on what I've read in internet forums, both of the above cannot possibly be true. The 733 is old and therefore unsafe and if you fly on one you're sure to die. :mrgreen:

Re: United Airlines

Yeah, I think there may need to be some context to that analysis and the context may be difficult to come by. Hawaii is hot... cargo holds can be hot... many animals don't tolerate heat well... put that all in a pot and stir and you end up with a lot of harmed animals. I think the key in that case w...

Re: United Airlines

Has anyone even taken notice that although United clearly deserves a flogging in this situation, the actual individuals who dragged the passenger off the plane were employees of the Chicago police department?

I find it odd that seemingly nobody is paying attention to that detail.

Re: Nair: Oh the ironing!

Kidding aside, personally I would have some qualms about putting evil chemicals near/in my ear canal. The stuff is probably okay for skin, but has it ever been tested on an eardrum? I use something like this: https://www.amazon.com/AVANTEK-Trimmer-Facial-Shaver-Battery-Operated/dp/B06WVPDGBH/ref=sr_...
