I wonder if anyone actually notices the RSS feeds people have on their sidebars. I know I usually don't pay attention to those unless some words in those feeds whimsically entered my glimpse and just happened to contain terms relating to things I'm interested in at the moment. Such fortuitous moment seldom if ever occurs.
So on that note……"LOOK AT THE FEEDS ON MY SIDEBAR!" Especially Overheard in New York. If you've never been there, you missed a lot. It has some of the funniest/dumbest/xxxest things one can hear. The place is addictive, because we always get a kick out of laughing at and criticing other people's stupidity/ignorance. It naturally brings about a feeling of superiority and confidence, subsequently making us keep going back for more. It's herorin for the soul.
Here is a taste: Thank You for Flying Wednesday One-liners
Pilot: Welcome to the Titanic of airliners.
–Delta plane, LaGuardia
Woman on cell: I want to speak to whoever booked this seat for me. I'm in the middle of the middle of the row…in coach. Can you imagine anything more horrible? I'm sitting next to a Chinese woman. I don't know if it's their diet but I don't like the way those people smell.
–Continental plane, JFK
Loudspeaker: Mr.–ha, ha, ha!…Mr. Punani? Ha, ha…Can Mr. Punani please come to Gate 12? Paging Mr…ha, ha…oh yeah…Mr. Punani to Gate 12.
Girl on cell: Yeah, but it's illegal to take sand on a plane?
–72nd between Columbus & Amsterda
Southern woman on cell: What airline are you on?…You don't know what airline you're on?…You're sitting on the runway and you don't know what airline you're on?…No, I won't let anyone know.
