    Just saying hi out there! Just remember, you are not in the land of $6 cokes. eep!

    Oh yeah:
    The flight proved to be a blast all-around. Much of that is because of the alcohol fueling us due to security requirements in Denmark.
    Well, after finishing the Chopin we bought at bottle of Absolute, figuring that we would have to throw it away in Denmark. At security, we ditched the 1/3 (1/3 yes...we kind of went through that, too) full bottle. I go through security with a quick bag check. I have a full bottle of Sprite (filled withVodka) that they let me keep. We could have taken the liqour. boo!

    SO: first off i wish we had video of the security point in Denmark. It has the freaking coolest mechanized in return of any security checkpoint ever. You put your stuff in standard security checkpoint bins. All units were automated on a moving mechanized metal roller system. Went through the standard x-ray stuff. You walk through the metal dector. Get your shit. And then leave the bin and the bin is weighed (found that out after getting gacked at by security) to see if it is empty, and sent back on a second layer of the conveyor to the start for other people to use.

    airplane bathroom locks (and greetings from Norway)

    So... while it is a pity that we are missing ToorCon i learned a few new things on the flight from Newark to Norway.

    Many times i've noticed small knobs or pins on the very top and bottom of airplane bathroom doors that appear to be a means of springing the hinges off their track. I always assumed this was the method that flight attendants or other crew members would use to open up a locked door if the need arose.

    It appears however that there is an even easier method to open the doors, at least on some model airlines. The small sign that says "lavatory" (or what have you) can be lifted up and reveal a small latch/lever that is directly connected to the throw bolt. Here's a video showing you how simple this mechanism is. (1.2 MB, XviD MPEG-4)






    So let that be a lesson to you... if you're planning on being a part of the mile high club (caution: almost no airplane bathrooms are big enough for this to be easy unless at least one party is very skinny and/or flexible) or doing a bump at 30,000 feet that door isn't as secure as you may think.

    The flight proved to be a blast all-around. Much of that is because of the alcohol fueling us due to security requirements in Denmark. The guy at the duty-free shop in Newark told us we shouldn't buy booze there since we couldn't take liquid to the end of our journey. We assured him that wouldn't be a problem. He really got a kick out of the fact that we wound up killing the whole bottle before we even departed EWR...





    Heh, childish humor... but still a highlight of the flight...



    And i totally deny the accusations that i popped open the lock to the liquor storage while waiting for the restroom...



    And yes, to all our folks at ToorCon, we missed you all. Hikari, Tim, M, Geo, etc... sorry for not making it. Everyone else, raise a glass and think of us. We are there with you in spirit.

Working...
