Marked Progress

traveling used to be a lot more difficult way back when

  1. That guy in the last row looks awful happy considering the person in front of him has his seat reclined the whole way. Must have popped a Vicodin.

    1. Yeah well, at least he's not dying of plague spots and dysentery.

  2. I did not travel much, but when I at last tried using airplane to visit my friends 800 km away instead of cheaper train--I was surprized how fast it was. The flight was less than hour long, it was about twice less than going on a bus to the town 100 km away. Today, maybe with some leg room discomfort, one can travel to other side of the globe in about 12 hours. The modern world is truly fantastic.

  3. The problem with airplanes for me is that it takes an equal amount of time travelling to and from the airports as it does on the plane (between London and Barcelona). At least it can be counted in hours rather than months. XD

  5. The dude from the news who paid for "legroom" did not recline his seat, he put a device on the seat in front of him that kept it from reclining. The airline took money from him for giving him more "legroom". All the responsibility for the situation is on them for bullshitting people. He just gave them a slap for that.

  6. About 15 years ago I was at Versailles, queueing for the entrance tickets. As I was early, there were not many people around yet and there was some distance from the gates to the ticket office. Three American sounding ladies came after me and I heard one of them moaning: "This cobblestone pavement is not very traveller friendly..." Well no wonder there was a revolution ;-)

    1. Obviously whoever invented cobblestones did not have American tourists in mind. They should have paved it with escalators instead
