Time to get out of Dodge.
The smell of money is impossible to escape. You get really good at hitting the “recirc” button on the car AC.
Flying over them is also an unforgettable experience.
Recirc reminds me... Had a conversation with a pax in the crowded jetway after getting back from the walk around.
Me: pardon me, coming through, hot coffee, done checking the wing nuts...
Pax: did you get your last breath of fresh air before taking off? They recycle the air until they land you know.
Me: I can turn off the recirculation fans for you if you want. Fresh air all flight!
Pax: they can't do that, or we can't breathe up there!
Me: what? that's not how that works......
Pax: yes they have to carry the air up with them and recycle-ate it and I get sick and that's why we are all tired and it's all used air...
Me: I'm "they" ...you see, the pressurisation system uses recycled air...and you're going to breathe 20% recycled air until 10k feet or so and then you'll breathe 25%. ... After landing the out flow valve will open fully and we will breathe all fresh air...
Pax: pilots don't work the air controls, they just fly the plane!
I was young and dumb then. I fly boxes now.
I think the Food Babe still has the edge in that one:
“The air that is pumped in isn’t pure oxygen either, it’s mixed with nitrogen, sometimes almost at 50%. To pump a greater amount of oxygen in costs money in terms of fuel and the airlines know this! The nitrogen may affect the times and dosages of medications, make you feel bloated and cause your ankles and joints swell.”
OMG I had to GTS. She deleted that balogna (flat hot dog) post and modded her robot.txt file so the innerwebs can't archive her stuff. That's how terribly inaccurate that post was. WTactualF?
Oh yeah. Here is the original post:
The really sad thing is if you scroll to the comments at the bottom, most comments at the time were from people agreeing with her. (Don't click on the "comments" link at the top - it will take you to ads, just scroll to the bottom).
I forgot about this other gem in there since the oxygen thing took the cake:
"When your body is in the air, at a seriously high altitude, your body under goes some serious pressure. Just think about it – Airplanes thrive in places we don’t. You are traveling in a pressurized cabin, and when your body is pressurized, it gets really compressed!"
Motorist drives under the traffic camera the camera flashed.
the motorist thinks I can't be speeding, so he drive around the block 5 more times each time a bit slower.
3 weeks later he gets 6 tickets for not wearing his seat belt.
When I finally get my Tesla, I want to pull through the Full Serve gas station just to eff with the attendant as he hunts for the fuel door.
She beat you to it.
