A Dark Day In History


On December 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Wilbur and Orville Wright succeeded in launching and flying the first manned, powered, heavier-than-air aircraft, thereby starting the chain of events which led to a ubiquitous, unavoidable transportation system that literally knocks days off of my life every time I have to endure it.

On behalf of white-knuckle flyers everywhere, I say to the Wright Brothers: God damn you! God damn you!

I believe it was Warren Buffet who said that the airline industry has been losing money ever since the Wright brothers got off the ground.
