If God had not intended us to fly, then he would not have given us tickets.


David Davis

Interestingly funny stuff from The Appalling Strangeness, about “Plane Stupid“. Never heard of them myself, being a bumpkin, but if they protest about runways and all that gear and complain that poor people can fly everywhere cheaply, then I will do the opposite of what they recommend.

The Devil cooks them nicely too, here.

I entirely favour cheap flights, because it means that people who are less-rich, or not green, or (on the whole) who have been robbed and short-changed by socialist state education, can afford to go to and enjoy drinking in nice places which they would never ordinarily see. I can see exactly how this would absolutely make the charrerati see red, but that’s not my problem, it’s theirs. The chatterati should get out less, unless it’s to join a three-hundred-year-excursion package to visit Lenin’s mausoleum, with (no) bed (and) sleep-deprivation and half-board in the cellars of Dzerzinsky Square.
