Mar 19th 2012 1:10PM I couldn't agree with you more. It will make flying ten times worse than it already is if cell phone use is permitted. Face it, the majority of the conversations will be stuff like, "Hey, guess where I'm calling from," or "You won't believe who is sitting in front of me," real important stuff like that. As for the other electronic devices, their use is prohibited while taxiing, taking off or landing. Get a grip folks, it's only a few minutes out of the flight. Are you so tech obsessed, so attached to your electronics you can't go without using them for a few minutes?
Feb 2nd 2012 1:31PM You should splurge on travel when you want to!! The amount of money you're willing to spend shouldn't depend on anybody's list of reasons, except your own. Everybody pretty much agrees that taking a gondola ride in Venice is expensive and a "touristy" thing to do. But if hiring a gondola for a couple of hours, an afternoon or all day is what you want to do and you can afford it, why not? It's your vacation, your money, both should be used to make you happy doing what you want.
Mar 5th 2011 10:53AM To all of you on the right, try to understand this. I know it may tax your abilities, but please try. Michele Obama is SUGGESTING, RECOMMENDING, ADVOCATING FOR, people making healthy CHOICES when they eat. That means YOU decide what you put in your mouth, what you feed your children. She is NEITHER TRYING TO, NOR AUTHORIZED TO, introduce legislation governing the food consumption of the American people. What is so difficult for you to understand about that, which part can't you grasp? If you don't want to listen, don't listen! Eat what ever you want, feed your kids what ever you want, knock your lights out, it's your life. You suffer the consequences of your actions.
Feb 21st 2011 12:53PM I'm an American citizen and I never did think much of Reagan as an actor and thought even less of him as a president. Most admired of all time, really, by whom, you and ONE of his children? Oh wait, I forgot, the other genius types such as Palin, Hannity and Beck think so too. As does the nitwit who ran for senator from Delaware, Christine O'Donnell. What was he admired for, a tax increase of one type or another in every year of his time in office except the last? Or was it trickle down economics, which even his vice president once called, "Smoke and mirrors economics?" Those of you on the right are at the point of being delusional about this guy.
Feb 5th 2011 12:26AM Hockey is not a sport, it's a combination of two activities; ice skating and shuffleboard.
Dec 30th 2010 6:06PM What's the big deal, this has been done for years. I saw it several times at the ORIGINAL (pre 70's renovation) Yankee Stadium and the guy was shot from left field to right field, not a few yards like this wuss.
Dec 27th 2010 11:37AM Good thing they included the Top of The Mark in San Francisco. Had they not, list would be bogus. I prefer the view from the Rainbow Griil/Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center in New York. Totally agree with the post about Piz Gloria in Switzerland, view is unreal. Some of my other favorites: Outdoor bar at the Menele Bay Hotel on Lanai in Hawaii, overlooking the channel across to Maui. View from the terrace restaurant at Hotel Villa San Michele in Fiesole Italy, breathtaking view over Florence. View from the restaurant on the Space Needle in Seattle is fantastic too. And while I've never gone up there, I would imagine the view from the restaurant on the Eiffel Tower in Paris is pretty spectacular.
Dec 24th 2010 11:08AM Maybe the dumbest thing is shutting down Newark Airport for six hours because a guy passed security and kissed his girlfriend. They caught the guy right away, knew exactly what had happened and it took them six hours to straighten it out? Exactly who is dumb here, the guy or TSA and Newark Airport authorities?
Dec 18th 2010 12:36PM Hey Acidbot, rap is NOT music. By definition music has to have melody and rhythm. As rap has rhythm and no melody, it's syncopation, NOT music. As a former drum student, I've got nothing against rhythm/syncopation and certainly there are people performing rap who can play instruments. But rap isn't music and rappers aren't musicians.
Nov 16th 2010 11:29AM No big deal. If I had the money and with the exception of the Mondial, I would buy any Ferrari before any Lamborghini. Especially the 250 Lusso Berlinetta, 246GTS, 275GTB4, either Daytona, California Spyder and the current 458. Yeah, I know, I didn't mention the 250GTO. Who the hell has $16+ million layijg around?
