About ten years ago I was in Port Moresby waiting on a flight in the terminal and watching some guys working on Fokker 100.  They were on a EWP working on a jet with the cover removed and they were close enough I could see them pretty well. seemed like they were unsure wtf was up, a lot pointing and apparent dscussion, at one point they both stood up and were stand there scratchng their heads looking at this fuckin engine.   I looked at my boarding pass and checked, I am flying out on a Boeing, praise the lord.

When you fly into Domodedovo in Moscow, you pass through the airplane boneyard along the runway.  Rusted out old planes, planes that have crashed, guys out there robbing parts...every airport has this, but that's the only one I know where it's visible from the terminal. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Fucking long way away, that's how far it is. More time than you want to sit in an airplane. Despite that, I highly recommend Australia to the traveler. Once you get there you can travel all over Asia surprisingly inexpensively on one or another of the budget airlines they have.

I've been to Antarctica on a boat.  I can hack it.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

So, taxiing is a bit like watching this game then?

Most Americans don't realize just how far behind the world US airlines and airports are.
Yes, but the trains!
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Ouch Maybin.  You can't get caught looking with two in scoring position.
