The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

Phrases I Thought I’d Be Done Hearing

“A post-9/11 world.”

However, I’ll offset that with some entertainment. An NBC reporter this morning described his flight yesterday under the new, revised, purposely-inconsistent TSA rules: “I was on what was called an ‘international’ flight, even though I was only coming from Canada….”

Maybe he needs a refresher.

As a bonus, too, the reporter couldn’t get up for the entire length of the flight because it was less than an hour. Don’t drink any coffee before flying.

In summer 2008, while on some business trips, I had to fly from Phoenix to Albuquerque. The flight, as a whole, was maybe 35 minutes, takeoff to touchdown.

I got upgraded to first class (big deal for 35 mins!), and the person next to me was freaking out that she couldn’t get served any alcohol on the trip. Not only could she not get up, because of the flight being under an hour, but apparently, New Mexico doesn’t allow alcohol to be served on planes while flying over their airspace. Apparently, this was her one big chance to get loaded on a plane.

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!
