Travel observations

When you're at 30,000 feet wearing the clothes in which you're going to present a paper and you're opening a container of airplane-provided yogurt packed on the ground, it's best to open it away from you.

I looked down when the plane went over the Australian Outback, and it looked like I was flying over Mars.

hi prof i was on the plane from Philadelphia to Phoenix and i remembered reading what you said about opening yogurt away from yourself. thankfully, cos the packet of salad dressing burst out all over my fingers. still better than clothes.
