  • Your next plane trip..

    Have you ever sat on a plane, next to an irritating seat-mate who keeps
    talking to you and snooping at everything you read?

    Next time, just follow these simple instructions:
    And get ready to enjoy your well-deserved privacy.

    1. Quietly and calmly open up your laptop case.
    2. Remove your laptop, and open it.
    3. Start up.
    4. Make sure the guy annoying you can see the screen.
    5. Close your eyes and tilt your head up to the sky. Take a very deep
    breath...
    6. Then open this web address...

            Yes, almost as hilarious as standing up and shouting "I have a bomb!"

            In any case I doubt it would enable you to "enjoy your well-deserved privacy". Especially if Mr Bush has put one of his "air marshals" on the plane.

              Don't complain about air marshalls. El Al is safest by far, because it openly admits to armed staff aboard. It avoids staff complacency by also randomly selecting individual employees to travel on flights for which they carried out the security checking: a great way to keep someone on his/her toes, by that person's life potentially depending on job efficiency.

                Fear not --- I was not complaining. Merely commenting that the OP's suggestion could lead to a rather...interesting outcome if the chap sitting next to you happened to be one of said marshals.

                Do El Al pay for the flight back for their staff, too? Or do they have to check baggage at the other end until they are randomly selected again?

                    The Daily Mail Newspaper ( 19 July 2017 ) reported " the ice served by some leading fast food chains in their soft drinks is contaminated by faecal bacteria, it has been revealed "

                    I worked in McDonalds and various pubs while doing my A Levels/taking my gap year.

                    I still eat in McDonalds (and drink in various pubs, although not the ones I worked in!).

                    I DO NOT have ice in drinks anywhere (except home, and I wash the ice trays frequently!) All I can...

                    Gordon999
                    Today's big news revealed 408 cases of acid attack and disfigurement of the face since Nov 2016.

                    Victims can be scarred for life and suffer huge loss of earning during the remainder of their life.

                    Any ideas on how to help the victims ? What is the proper punishment for...

                    I agree.

                    It doesn't require any change in the law to achieve that, though.
                    Being scarred by acid is the same as being scarred with any weapon (if quicker).

                    If the victim suffers life time scarring , its fitting for the attacker to be given life time imprisonment.

                    I would have put it at GBH with intent which is worse....Corbyn would probably give them a pat on the back and tell them not to be naughty!

                    It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

                    The maximum sentence for GBH (which is what an acid attack would be if "successful") is life imprisonment.
                    The sentencing guidelines would allow that sentence.

                    It makes the stupid posturing by the Home Secretary just look embarrassing.
