12 Things You Should Never Do on Airplanes
Oh god... The WORST advice you can possibly get for flying.
- Come to the airport with a bottle of water
- Drink it.
- Fill it up past security unless you want to pay $5 per 0.5 L of water
- But food or bring food -- you will starve to death if you think the airline will feed you
- Stop giving a s**t about security. They're being dicks, so don't worry about "hurrying" -- they're causing the slow down, not you -- take your time taking your shoes and belt off.
- Declare everything as a weapon that could possibly be used --- yes, they are that stupid
- Get up whenever you damn well feel like and walk around.
- The flight attendants are just doing their jobs and repeating BS lies - pay them no attention other than to be polite
- No, your mobile phone won't cause a crash.
- No, your laptop won't cause a crash.
- No, farting doesn't cause planes to crash.
- Yes - they are full of BS.
Flying is one of the most unpleasant things you can do. Many third world countries make it a lot more enjoyable, but if you need to fly in the first world, you're hosed -- it ain't gonna be fun.
