'Funnier than Clarkson',..... 'Wittier than Bryson',.......Just two of the endorsements unlikely to grace the lazy meanderings of a cheerful cynic in India's hippy paradise, Goa.
The pros and cons of the use of passenger restraints in civil aircraft upon landing
"I’m never too sure about seatbelts in airliners. I’m all too aware that if captain Fur Ner Ner has partaken of one too many strawberry daiquiris over Afghanistan and we lightly skim a hillside before sliding to a halt in a cloud of red dust and splintered palm trees, I shall be grateful that my nose has avoided an intimate relationship with the clip that holds the meal tray to the seat in front. If, however, we lightly skim a hillside before careering wheel-less and screaming into the airfield fuel depot and consequent pyrotechnic fireball, then I feel sure that my chances of avoiding crispy skin and being welded to my seat would be enhanced should I not be wearing my seatbelt. Hopefully I shan’t be given the opportunity of finding out."
Having sought 'affirmation of worth', your (largely positive) critique will ensure that the 'Summer of '11' and probably '12 too is of the indoor, finger-prodding variety........you heartless bastards!
