Is it just me, or are they deliberately making planes smaller?!
I went to Pictage's Partnercon in New Orleans last November. Much to my dismay, two of my connecting flights were on planes that I swear were the size of toy models for giants. (Or maybe they were toy models - I don't know.) It was a fight to convince flight attendants that yes, the bag will fit on the plane and no, I will not and can not let you put my camera equipment and livelihood in the belly of the plane. I was able to keep my gear with me (thankfully!), but the whole experience gave me a screaming headache.
OK; it's 2010 now. When are we going to get the Star Trek technology to beam to wherever we need to go?
