1. I was just thinking that...
It's just too damn much trouble to fly these days. I had a hell of a time getting out of Boston last week, and it was before all this additional crap. :eyes:

2. That would actually work for me.
I haven't even been in an airport since 1995.

3. Trains and boats
That's the way forward. Or back. No matter.

We should learn to live slower. More vacation time. Yeah, like the rich will allow that.

15. Boats? Then they'll have to ban drill bits, and nails, or anything sharp
along with all of the explosives. And what if the terrorists plan to push the passengers overboard? Then what???

No, boats won't do either. Everyone needs to just stay inside their homes.

5. I need one of those Star Trek transporters then.
Otherwise that'd totally mess up my social plans.

11. What if it split you in half?
With one half of you good but unable to make a decision, and the other half eee-vill and tryin' to jump Janice Rand?

14. Bring back blimps and zeppelins!
Sure, they may go a little slower, but those things could never explode or anything like that.

Ban air travel?

Then it would have been nearly impossible for me to go to the Ohio DU'er meetup! :cry:

Air travel is the fastest way to cover long distances, baby....

And I needed to be there! :grr:
