  1. I find it shocking passing through a number of cities and being pulled over for suspicious contents in my carry on
    They have numerous times discovered my Godiva chocolates
    With all the billions of dollars in screening technology they can’t determine the difference between weapons and Godiva chocolate?
    And if I wear my rock revival jeans I have to get my privates groped almost every time?
    Unlike some others in this country I can’t claim inappropriate touching
    Sad and pathetic I started taking the train in some markets

  2. That article about the 380s going to pasture. The article states the planes were leased to Singapore Air for 10 years and “…The lessor used to get $1.7 million a month for the wide-body, whereas the Rolls deal will bring in $480,000….”

    $1.7mil over a year is $20.4million. Over 10 years of full utilization that’s $204million.

    A quick google says “as of 2010 average price of a 380 was $375million”.

    How does the math in this leading thing work?
