UPDATE: HOOTERS IS HEADED TO THE HOLY LAND.

Flying British Airways and want to get a free upgrade to first class? According to Reuters, all you have to do is die in the middle of your flight. Then you can enjoy all that first class has to offer - fluffy pillows, roomy seats, champagne - the works. Poor Paul Trinder, who woke up to find himself seated near a dead body on a flight from Delhi to London took it in stride. "The corpse was strapped into the seat but because of turbulence it kept slipping down on to the floor ... It was horrific. The body had to be wedged in place with lots of pillows."

Remember how when you were younger your parents told you to stop watching so much television because it would rot your brain? Ok, perhaps it was just mine.... I'm sure we've all heard televisions referred to as "the idiot box", right? Well, fear not folks. Now you can show your parents just how smart you really are - and all because of television and the movies. It seems that they have a lot to teach us. From our ABC's to Ancient History, the cinema has been edumactin' us from the very beginning. And I'm not talking about Sesame Street...

TV is educational, definitely. I'll think about that some more while watching Anerica's Next Top Model tonight.

Found the BA story hysterically funny on the tube this morning. Helped by the massive working class chip on my shoulder; let the rich bastards suffer.

Oh dear. Too bad the person who died couldn't appreciate their first class treatment. I read that on BBC News yesterday afternoon.

Was Mr Trinder the only person in first class, I wonder... I didn't see any other people's names mentioned.

Speaking of airlines, I meant to ask you... I read one of your comments on another blog and you said something like, "Air Canada... you know what they're like". Now, I don't know what they're like, but since we're considering Toronto as a potential holiday destination (and that would probably mean flying Air Canada), it would be good to know! Got any dirt to dish? Are they really horrible?
