Changing penmanship to handwriting discriminates against those without hands. May I suggest we change it to penpersonship?

"It wasn't always like this."

True, back in the day when gas cost a little bit more than water. Airlines could much more easily afford to fly, for example, 10 trips a day at 80% loads. Now they'll fly 7 at closer to 100%. Also there was no internet, so if the airline did change your seats from confirmed to unconfirmed, you just wouldn't have known until you got to the airport. And your odds of being in a fatal incident were much higher then than now.

A lot of the niceties that made flying tolerable back then may be gone, but it has never been safer and the amount of information available now seems like magic compared to where it was 20 years ago.

I still get annoyed by the same shit that annoys Goldy, though.

The only plausible explanation is that the person firing the gun is behind the cameraperson and everyone is running toward the shooter before pulling out their guns to stop them.
