I just felt I should mention this: reasonable people do not get into airplanes. In the contest of hollow aluminum tubes rocketing through the sky vs. the ground, the ground has never lost. The best one can hope for is a tie.
The last time I went on an airplane, I decided to take a mild sedative: rum. Going through the security checkpoint, I asked “can I bring a parachute onto a plane as a carry-on item?” The guard started to say “as long as it fits in the overhead bin”, but about halfway through stopped and decided instead to say “WHY?” He then proceeded to search me through my clothes.
So, here’s to hoping that doesn’t happen. Again.
