    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    I don't get the window often but I do like looking outside and seeing the sights. sometimes it's nice to know where you are and what's happening outside. tough on your eyeballs though.

    The thing is, there is not much to see when you're out over the North Atlantic for 60% of the flight.

    Sometimes that's the case but last week our flight to Detroit flew over the middle of Greenland and then down by Hudson's Bay. amazing views.

    Pinoys are extremely friendly but if there's a queue to join, an elevator to get into or an intersection to cross by car they'd slit your throat if it allowed them to go first. It's really, really bizarre. Not unlike my experiences in the Middle East and other parts of SE Asia and Africa. Japan is the lone exception I've found in the Eastern hemisphere.
