Huffpost Travel: The Safest Seat on a Plan, According to Studies of Crash Data (This will make you feel better if, like me, you’re usually stuck in the tail end of the plane.)

NY Magazine: No Sympathy for the Hillbilly. (Yeah…this is where I’m at right now…f^&% them. They keep biting the Liberal hands that feed them…so…fine then…fend for yourself. We’ll be fine because we’ve adapted,  but…..you who are wanting to “make America great again,” well…you’ve not.)

Hell, I haven’t even uploaded photos to the site since like 2014, I think.)
