"LIGHTEN THE LOAD"



Listening to NPR today, I heard the news about the airlines asking the passengers to "use the john before they get on"!! Since the average bladder can hold a 1.1 pound of urine, if all 216 passengers had fairly full bladders, it would add additional 240 lbs. In one month, they are hoping to reduce their carbon emissions by 5 tons. Add to the weirdness, the airline will post "loo attendants" who will encourage people to use the restroom at the gate prior to take off. I can hear it now, "Excuse me, miss, but I can't help noticing that you look like you need to take a leak". Next thing you know, the privy police may be saying that "you may board as long as your fluids fit comfortably in ONE, QUART SIZE,clear plastic,zip-top bag".

Well, it makes perfect sense to me -- who in their right mind actually wants to use that airline privy? And as far as the 'mile-high club' is concerned, let's just say, hope you were wearing a haz-mat suit.

Cheers from your cousins.
