May 28th 2010 10:48AM I never said it was right for people to hack into her account in the first place. I only feel that situations like these are what you make of it. And of course she's welcome to feel how she likes, but as a writer/online contributor she should also realize that she is inviting readers to contribute their opinion. I may be blunt, but there are people far worse than I. Anyone who isn't willing to take the backlash shouldn't share their stories online, or anywhere for that matter because readers are also entitled to "feel how they choose to feel."
May 19th 2010 12:48PM Big deal, someone hacked your Facebook. Happens all the time, it's called a JOKE. Instead of explaining it to everyone individually, you should have just corrected the errors, then commented on the status something along the lines of "Haha, very funny, guys" or "Wow, gotta love when people hack into my Facebook." Seriously, don't be so sensitive.
May 19th 2010 12:45PM Wow, how dumb. That's not even that big of a deal. It's Facebook. Like you said, you have common friends, and friends will just laugh at it for a little while then get over it. Unless he's Facebook friends with his sweet little old grandmother or something, why worry about it? Stop overreacting.
Aug 16th 2009 8:55PM Wow, what a ridiculous woman. Why doesn't she just sell her artwork or move to a smaller house, especially if she's single anyway? I don't care whose spot the crypt is near, it's the fact that HER HUSBAND IS BURIED IN IT. That is wrong in so many ways. I just don't understand people like this who care more about their material possessions than they do their own loved ones.
Feb 16th 2009 2:29PM I agree that she is probably just spoiled...listen to the way she speaks to her husband! I'm Chinese in decent, and women DO NOT speak to men that way in our culture. Even if she did have an important flight (which I doubt considering her husband doesn't seem so upset or irrational about it and because she never bothers to explain it to the staff), she could have handled it better than that. I think she's just mad because she thinks because she's the 'customer', everyone on the plane has to wait for her pretty face to board before they can take off. I ONLY fly with Cathay Pacific from the US to Hong Kong and back, and they have been the most amazing airline I've flown. The staff is always very kind and helpful.

Aug 8th 2008 12:31PM Actually, Gil Elvgren did use real models when he created these pin-ups. The settings and props were his imagination, but the women were very real.
Jul 10th 2008 2:44PM Haha, so the 'different angle' picture is more hilarious (and dare I say, a little disturbing) than it is 'sexy'. I don't know who the girl furthest right is, but if I had an ass (or lack thereof) like hers, I would certainly not be wearing what she is wearing. Disgusting. Maybe if they actually had decent bodies, it wouldn't bother me as much, but alas...they don't. And her face is so ugly...it amazes me that Playboy was actually interested in her; she's not attractive in the slightest. My guess is that they were more interested in the controversy surrounding her. But seriously? What a step down!
Jul 10th 2008 1:38PM Actually, most airlines DO have a dress code and they DO have rules pertaining to a passenger's behavior, and this includes Southwest Airlines.
Another person already pointed this out; however, as you seem to have missed it, allow me to reiterate, from the Southwest Airlines Contract of Carriage (in other words in case you didn't understand, the contract outlining the Southwest Airlines policies, which can be found on their website in PDF format, that prospective passengers are expected to read and abide by:
"Comfort and Safety - Carrier may refuse to transport or remove from the aircraft at any point any passenger in the following categories as may be necessary for the comfort or safety of such passenger or other passengers:
(1) Persons whose conduct is or has been known to be DISORDERLY, ABUSIVE, OFFENSIVE, THREATENING, intimidating, or violent, or whose CLOTHING IS LEWD [which I would say not wearing underwear under your miniskirt, as is conveniently not mentioned in this article, but can be found in others, is pretty lewd], OBSCENE, or PATENTLY OFFENSIVE"
Airlines already require you to do this, so it would certainly not be sudden. Perhaps you, these girls, and many other people have never bothered to read the contract you were agreeing to you before, but it certainly spells it out for you nonetheless. In fact, I've traveled on airlines whose code of appropriate attire outlaws flip-flops, stiletto heels, shorts, wife-beaters, T-shirts, etc. It happens, but it is clearly stated on their websites, again when you check in, and usually on the back of the ticket as well.
Perhaps if you actually read the contracts and agreements you sign, rather than just mindlessly signing or agreeing to it, you would realize this.
Jul 10th 2008 1:09PM Exactly!
I also read another article in which a flight attendant or someone else on the flight (can't remember which, this was when this was first publicized) stated that the outfit the girls wore for the show were in fact NOT the same as the outfits they wore on the plane. It was the same tank and skirt, but they had added the sweater and pulled the skirt down to make it seem a little longer for the show. Even worse, during the flight, the girl WASN'T EVEN WEARING UNDERWEAR.
And contrary to the popular belief on this discussion board, there ARE dress codes on airlines; they are clearly stated on the airline's websites and even when you first check in your bags. Even then, most airlines are a little lax regarding the dress code and will let you get away with some things that are by their policy considered out of dress code, such as shorts or flip flops (I kid you not, read the policies). I know I wear shorts or flip flops on occasion, but I've never been asked to change or been denied my flight. However, I would certainly understand it if I were dressed like a common whore, and especially if I didn't have the decency to at least wear panties. If I were another passenger on this flight, I would have been very upset (as I'm sure they were), especially if I had kids with me! Children don't need to see some nasty tramps genitalia, thank you, and even as an adult, I'd rather not see it either.
