  1. There’s more good click bait in this weekends Paddle Your Own Kanoe
    (and yes they spell canoe with a K).
    It makes you look twice and want to check it out doesn’t it dear comment reader?
    The K makes you think of a plane!
    See the body of the plane and the two wings? OK, the wings are both on one side and only one is attached to the body but close enough right?

  2. The Pilots are certainly not the issue, its the Stewardess and Stewards who are the problem. They are lazy. They have attitude. They think it’s about them. The US versions of these creatures look scruffy. And a decent amount of the US versions are seriously overweight. Some are so old, they are not saving anyone in an emergency ( they are there for our safety apparently LOL ) But when they get paid peanuts, well you know the rest….. so forget about the Pilots, focus on getting a higher standard of Stewardess and Stewards ( here’s a tip for the United States airlines, look at Emirates, Qatar and Oman Air, even Singapore, you might learn something )

  3. “I love that this woman shoves past another passenger – and then tells everyone not to be rude.”

    Ummm, I MAY be blind, but that individual is NOT a woman, he is a male passenger. Anyone agree with me???

  4. @Richard @Gary. Easiest way to avoid the embarrassing ambiguity of determining whether the person in this case is male or female: “I love that this a**h*** shoves past another passenger….”
