There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Flying Tips

This week I’ll be making one of my rare trips that requires getting on a plane. I’m not going halfway around the world or anything, but I am headed to the west coast, which will be a good five or six hour flight. The problem is that I didn’t get on a plane for the first time until I was 18, and because I’ve only flown a half-dozen times in my life, I still get pretty jittery when I step onto a plane. Sure, I know all the statistics about how safe you are in a plane versus in a car, but that feeling of not having direct control is still a little disconcerting for me.

So, a question to you experienced flyers (fliers? which is it?) out there: what advice do you have for wimps like me to help relax you during a flight, particularly during takeoff and landing?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
