Airbus
« on: July 13, 2011, 02:50:18 PM »
My brother thinks he's being funny, but he keeps sending me links to Airbus disasters.  I should have known when he asked me details about the flight and what type of jet we were flying on.  I've been doing some research and it does appear that most people aboard die when they crash. 

Thank goodness I only have to be on it from Columbus to Chicago. :-\

And since your are flying to the land of BOEING you should be ashamed of flying anything Airbus makes.

As a displaced federal employee of the Newark Air Force Base who lost his job  when Boeing took over, I have no shame. ;D

Besides, if I make it to Chicago, I'll be on a Boeing 757 when I land in Seattle.

Almost anyone that flies these days knows that virtually every airline is a "flying Greyhound bus" hence Airbus has suddenly become quite generic.

Just take a few diazepams and drink some of that white zin, you won't even notice the take-off.

In the meantime, Here are some plane accident statistics:

∑ In 2008, the Air Crash Record Office (ACRO) reported 876 deaths due to airplane accidents and 147 separate airplane crashes. The worst year for airplane crash deaths was 1972, when 3,214 people died in plane crashes. The safest year for plane accidents was 2007, when only 766 people died in plane accidents.

∑ If calculated by distance, planes are 62 times safer than cars and trucks. However, if calculated by journey, planes are three times more dangerous than cars.

∑ Popular Mechanics determined that the safest place to sit in an airplane is near the tail. However, the FAA has put forth that no one seat is safer than any other in a commercial plane.

∑ Half of all plane accidents are caused by pilot error. Pilot error can either be based on a pilot making a mechanical mistake while flying or on a pilot making a poor decision based on weather conditions.

Goodness gracious, I had to google diazepam.  My brother said you can't drink anything before boarding.  Then again, I think he's enjoying my stress.  Sick little bastard, turn about is fair play and I'll get him back.  I could probably smoke a little, but I'm sure that would cause a full body cavity search.....think I'll smoke a little.  My luck, I'll get that fat ugly bitch from the commericals.

I also have video links and some other pictars with quite identifiable bits of human bodies all over the place. Let me know if you want 'em.

Presumably you'll be flying into Seattle on Cracker Skyways, yes?


If so I envy you. I'm told their VIP Lounge is to die for.


Happy skies! :)

My brother said you can't drink anything before boarding.

Your brother is winding you up something rotten. You can drink before flying, the trick is to not be noticeably inebriated. Just in case you need to google "inebriated", it means shit-faced, drunk-as-a-skunk, three-sheets-to-the-wind, or just plain drunk. If you appear to be drunk before boarding, they can refuse you.

I remember one time when I was still living in the States and we (me, my then-husband and our 1 year old daughter) were flying back home from a visit to his parents in England. We had our duty-free vodka and whiskey with us and I proceeded to knock a few back (not too much, but enough, apparently), not realising that alcohol can affect you differently at high altitudes and the cabin pressure. I felt fine - just a little buzzed - during the flight, but as soon as we began the decent I became more and more drunk without actually drinking more.

By the time we were going through customs, I was visibly drunk and staggering. The customs guy took one look at us (me struggling to stay upright while carrying one small suitcase, and my poor ex struggling with the rest of the luggage plus our daughter), rolled his eyes, said to my ex "Oh Dear!", took a cursory look at our passports and waved us through. Fastest customs check I've ever had! ;D

If anything does happen, please add me to the memorial list.  Indirectly, it would still be a death from the result of AIDS.   :o

Even though my brother retired after 22 years in the Air Force, I remember when he enlisted and we saw him off.  He cried like a little bitch at the thought of flying so I'll just remind him of that.  Out loud on his FB wall....lol

the layover in PIT (between CAK and CLT) is an hour, which has always been just long enough for me to stop at one of the bars, in the terminal between the gates, to down two margaritas before boarding ;)

Air travel? How passe'.

AMTRAK is the way to go. It takes longer, but its more fun and you get to see the countryside.

Next, we will graduate to oceanic travel -  perhaps starting with the cruise to Hawaii. It takes two weeks altogether. What a delight, but I would probably be a weight comperable to a blue whale when I lgot back. Too muck food on those things.

HUGS,

Mark

How dare you use a classic scene from a great television show (LOST) in your campaign of fear!

this was a fantastic scene -- and I watched a "making of......." piece that shows how they did all this -- quite interesting.

As for flying -- just watch the people -- the behaviors you will witness will take your mind off of the fact that you are 30,000+ feet in the air.

Trust me, I already did all the research to avoid being that far off the ground.  There's no rail service at all out of central Ohio.  I'd have to taken a greyhound to Indianaopolis then picked up a train.  By the time i'd have made it, you'd have all been gone.  I took one greyhound in my life and Bill couldn't afford all the grief it cost him.  3 days to SC and I wasn't a happy faggot.  When you reach that point where you fit in, it's time to get the freak off.

Makes me glad I have my choice of prescription sedatives. Oxycodone, vicodin, Xanax, Seroquel. I'll be just blissful, and if I do go out, I won't know the difference!

I second the request to be added to the memorial list if I should die in travel! In fact, not to be morbid or anything,  but if I die for some reason anyway, will you guys remember me anyway?

Think about it. If she leaves at first light she can probably make it in her yellow submarine, since she's evidently not flying. Or perhaps she's going to jet-ski to Honolulu and ride a manatee from there. Really, there are so many options.

Goodness, I just realized it's tomorrow afternoon already down there. Did she mean her Friday or our Friday?

OK you smart arses...I'm flying into Portland NOT Seattle and we all know it's a much better flight from here to Portland, even in coach....but I do like the idea of getting there via Jet Ski and Manatee.

They call it a 'light chop' but as you know it can be a wild ride.  The only bumpy part of the trip should be when you pass over the Rockies.  Pop that second dose when you reach the Kansas airspace and you will be glad you did.

Oh God the Rockies.., the worst ride I've ever had on a plane was taking off out of Denver at the old Airport which was near the base of the Rockies. Rocking and literally rolling the whole way up with the engines whining and looking out the windows and seeing the wings bending at unusual angles due to the "chop".

We read the book "Alive" when I was about 13 and that probably gave me the freakiness about flying.  I eat very little meat and couldn't imagine existing on dead friends for nutrition.  This should probably be in the "Am I infected forums", but if we crash in the Rockies and they eat me, can they get HIV?

Certainly not if they cook you first. If they eat you raw immediately after your death, maybe. You should disclose to anyone who is thinking about eating you raw. ;D

HA! This gave me my morning laugh that I needed! Though I'm not a transmission expert and I'm hesitant to disagree with the resident expert Ann, I wouldn't think eating someone with HIV would pose a transmission hazard. The stomach acid should kill any virus, and the mouth issue falls into the category of the theoretical oral sex risk, lol. Or am I off? Wow, I am really over thinking this!

I said "maybe" to eating fresh, raw, hiv positive flesh because you'd be getting more than a small amount of blood in your mouth. As cannibalism is a rarity, I can't see anyone testing this theoretical transmission risk any time soon.

Wear lots of bling baby!!  Just take the zero gauge out before you get to the security check or you may be delayed a bit.  

Edit:  My bad... its gauge not gage.

Slacks? As opposed to what, a skirt? What were you planning to wear? And what kind of accident? The plane going down or one of a more personal nature? In that case I don't think slacks or a skirt are going to make much difference except the skirt is going to draw more attention. Maybe she meant take extra slacks in case you have an accident. I remember one of my grandmothers was always telling us to wear clean underwear in case we were in an accident. She said the first thing they do in the hospital is take your clothes off and everyone would then know if you weren't wearing clean underwear.

yes, she's right. There were several reports out (yrs ago) that showed that people wearing long pants, long sleeves and non-nylon blends fare better in case of accidents, be they in cars or planes. Nylon-blend, rather than cotton-blend, clothing will melt in the heat of fire and stick to a person causing worse burns. Long pants and long sleeves will protect more from abrasions of flying debris or rough treatment. (same way jeans and a jacket protect a motorcyclist more from "road rash" during a accident)

http://www.wikihow.com/Survive-a-Plane-Crash
Quote
Wear long pants, a long-sleeve t-shirt, and sturdy, comfortable, lace-up shoes. Although you may want to be comfortable or professional-looking on a flight, sandals or high heels make it hard to move quickly within the wreckage. High heels are not allowed on the evacuation slides and you can cut your feet and toes on glass or get flammable liquids on or in your sandals if you wear them.

Loose or elaborate clothing also poses a risk, as it can get snagged on obstacles in the close confines of a plane. If you know youíre going to be flying over cold areas, dress appropriately, and consider keeping a jacket on your lap. Youíll need to be able to stay warm if you survive the crash. Even if that is not a consideration, the more of your body is covered during impact, the less likely you are to receive serious injuries or burns. Cotton or wool clothing is also preferable as it is less flammable. Wool is preferable to cotton when flying over water, as wool does not lose its insulating properties to the degree cotton does when wet.
