Shit happens

This post has been inspired by an earlier incident this morning.

What is the likelihood of getting shat on?
The world's surface area is 510072000 km2 (copy and pasted from wikipedia of corse). Now think of how much space your head occupies within that...
It makes the chance of getting hit seems pretty slim.
Please note: Meat heads will be at slightly bigger disadvantage.

Well, it would appear not so slim in my case. I've been hit by bird shit twice now. And to make things even less probable, both times have been within 6 months, in the same 5m radius. So you might think, 'oh, well it's probably the same bird, that sits in the same spot' - but then why do i have to time it just right to walk underneath. It probably only relieves itself a few times a day, which makes it even more unlikely.

And just to take the piss even more, IT HAPPENED UNDERGROUND!

The worst things about flying are the queues, the waiting and the boarding.
I find the boarding process particularly unpleasant. You can feel the eyes burning through the back of your head if your towards the front of the queue, or smell the desperation and fear towards the back. Young families start revving their prams and pensioners are sizing you up. It's a pretty scary place to be.

When i boarded a plane a couple weeks ago i thought i might avoid this problem as it had allocated seating. I was wrong.
People were still acting as if they might not get a seat... despite having a seat. And much like the human chicken post, the OAP's were the worst culprits again!
