Paraskevidekatriaphobia

Paraskevidekatriaphobia, I don't have it.
Have a good day out there.

Quite possibly the greatest search engine EVAR

In my humble opinion, Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes comic strip is genius. Now you can use this search engine to find all your favorites.

You don't have any favorites?!?
Check out these by Progressive Boink.
Now you do.

Have you ever felt like doing this?

NEW YORK -- A JetBlue flight attendant got into an argument with a passenger on a jetliner arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday, cursed the passenger, grabbed a beer from the galley and then deployed an emergency exit slide and fled the plane, authorities said.

Flight attendant Steven Slater was arrested at his nearby home in the Belle Harbor section of Queens by Port Authority of New York And New Jersey police on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing.

He cursed the passenger ON THE INTERCOM. A man can only take so much. Thankfully he didn't pull a gun and start blasting away. Instead he grabbed a beer and made an epic exit. An illegal epic exit, but still pretty awesome.
When you are in customer service as I am, you hear everything. Some days it takes all the self restraint the Marine Corps instilled in me not to flip out on customers.

I'm sure more details will come out on this. Including: the passenger giving his side of the story, the flight attendant giving his side of the story, The CEO of the airline calling for an investigation, President Obama commenting on the story, The White House press secretary retracting the President's statements because "he didn't have all the facts", a Rose Garden meeting between the passenger and the flight attendant to "have a beer".
