Had your Christmas dinner? Well, this is mine… At the airport lounge with a bottle of Godiva Mocha and the latest issue of Wired. Eighteen hours of flying ahead of me, but I hear this SQ21 flight is really something (e.g. nice leather seats, a snack bar, etc). Stay tuned for in-flight photos where permissable.
About this distance record breaking flight, Peter told me how these non-stop flights travel via the Earth’s hemisphere. This is where there is less of an atmosphere to protect us, which means three things: 1) I might get to see Santa at the North Pole, 2) This is as close to outer space I think I’ll ever get, 3) Medically speaking, we can only take this route a few times a year, since we’re risking chances of cancer by cosmic radiation.
Don’t believe me? Go google it.. I’m writing this from my T-mobile Sidekick so I can’t go link-happy today.
Oh yeah, Merry Christmas y’all!
