I have no love for the airline companies. The experience of flying is just slightly less unpleasant than that of a third world jail. I have been checking prices to book my mother a trip to go to her sister's anniversary two provinces away. Earlier this week the price was $119 each way and I thought that was okay. I checked this morning and the price had gone up to $139. In TWO days.
That was 'West Jet' the better of the two choices we have in this country. I then went to 'Air Canada'. Well what do you know. Where they were $119 two days ago they had ALSO jumped to $139.
Those COLLUDING BASTARDS! I thought they were suppose to be in competition with each other - not ganging up to give me the screwgie no matter which airline I choose. I usually go with 'West Jet' because their airline waitresses don't usually shiv me in the aisles the way 'Air Canada's' smiling staff does.
I swear they are worse than big oil and the car companies (who stopped progress on electric car technology) and I bet if I look deeper I would find that the airline industry had a lot to do with keeping jet packs and teleportation tech out of our hands too.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
