Faced with bad viral publicity, United is now "trying to make it right"

I've flown United many times, and in the past several years, their service had gotten a lot worse. Bad as they are, United is still better than American Airlines, the only airline I refuse to fly (after a couple of very bad experiences) even if they pay me.

It's always been amazing to me that some people (from both sides of the religion/atheism argument) insist on "proofs."

If it can be proven, it's no longer faith. Actually, faith is all about the absence of proof. It's how humans believe - not because it can be proven, but exactly because it cannot be proven.

@mmm - that darned English language. It keeps on changing on us poor sods:

From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

1: a usually pictorial representation : image

2 [Late Greek eik?n, from Greek] : a conventional religious image typically painted on a small wooden panel and used in the devotions of Eastern Christians

3: an object of uncritical devotion : idol

4: emblem, symbol

5 a: a sign (as a word or graphic symbol) whose form suggests its meaning b: a graphic symbol on a computer display screen that usually suggests the type of object represented or the purpose of an available function

The thing is that these apartment buildings are sprouting like mushrooms in China. They have rows upon rows upon rows of them. Someone told me that on average, a building like this one goes up in China every single day.

Thanks for catching that, Skipweasel! Whatever happened to MiMi?

You know, talking about security blanket, the most famous one is Hugh Heffner's bunny blanket. That's where he got the logo for Playboy.

It's pretty nifty ... We don't coordinate postings with Boing Boing, and considering that we cover the same grounds it's actually interesting that not too many of our posts overlap.
