I'm sooooooooooo buying the shirt:

"Land of the Free.
Some restrictions apply.
Void where prohibited."

Oh, I haven't giggled that much all day. Thank you for sharing it.

I just have to wonder about the surivial instincts of someone who wears a deliberately inflammatory shirt in a situation where she is going to be trapped in a little metal box at 40,000 feet with an unknown group of strangers. Hmmm, the article about how she was roughed up by a drunken and beligerant redneck in mid flight and is now suing the airline for emotional damages would have been much more amusing. My sympathies tend to be with the flight attendants. Their job is hard enough without individuals insisting on civil rights before common sense.

It's funny, I don't think that you and I dissagree very often, we generally just arrive at similar answers from exceedingly different paths of logic.

I've always thought train stewards, airline attendants, etc. have the most thankless, dangerous jobs that no one thinks of as hard or dangerous. They're jobs I NEVER want.

Back when I first started here, I was urged to apply for full-time, and didn't, because you had to be willing to teach in the prisons. You didn't get a gun, or a guard in the room, you were just locked in with a bunch of the best of the inmates. Sure, in a pinch, they might even try to protect you against the less evolved, but you're still locked in, powerless except for fists, feet, and teeth, with a bunch of unpredictable, pissed off, people, most of whom are bigger and more ruthless than you are.

No thanks.
