Travel Future May Include Human-Powered Monorail PDF Print E-mail

Ever since 1930s comic strips and movie serials, it has been predicted. There soon may be city transportation where travelers won’t need to drive on crowded streets nor use polluting gasoline.

They’ll go sailing through the air on controlled rails in little capsules. A new monorail idea is that they’ll be powered by passenger legs. No smelly, burning fossil fuels, just throbbing muscles pumping away like hamsters in cages.

To Recline Or Not Recline In The Cheap Seats PDF Print E-mail

Q: I’m over six feet four, and every time I fly I have trouble when I try to be comfy in my economy seat. I never just jam the seat backward. Before making the adjustment, I inform the passenger behind me. However, I still get everything from angry mumbles to outright complaints. What can I do to avoid trouble when I recline?

I had a very enjoyable dinner, but had to renew my search for authentic Italian fare the next day.

Air India Provides Female-Only Seating Rows PDF Print E-mail

Opinion: It must have been inspired by recent news items about male passengers making male passes at female seatmates. Of course, we endorse the protected seating for all airlines where women may fear being groped by horny male strangers.

But, as long as there’s a female-only section, it’s only fair that there also be male-only seating. There guys will be able to relax, take off their shoes and unbuckle their belts. They’ll be free to pick their noses, rub their toes and vigorously scratch the more intimate parts of their bodies.

They’ll also be permitted to loudly discuss politics, women, sports and booze while using all the four-letter words they choose. And after dining on the airline meal, the guys won’t be restricted from belching and emitting loud noises from other areas of their bodies.

And... uh ... about the flight seating of transgenders ...
