Headed To Colombia Any Time Soon?

If so, might we suggest you tell whoever makes your travel arrangements to book you a flight on Colombia’s Aires airline, whose planes are protected by some sort of force field that allows them to struck by lightening, break into three pieces and only have one person (out of 131) die (and not as a direct result of the crash)?

    Not to mention the statistical odds of CA jet going down again is now like one in a million

    Probably still worth the risk when traveling to Colombias given that your other option is riding a burro with one of those nasty blankets and an industrial sized can of deet.

    I heard Cornell graduates are to blame for this and were seen at Minetta’s last night killing it while discussing Soviet Russia.

    @5 I heard you need to stop trying to make the Cornell “jokes” happen. They’ve made up the entirety of your comments today and last Friday. They’re not happening.

    I like Cornell. I thought the campus was really nice when I visited, but I am glad I decided to go to UVA though.

    @15 The flight’s data-recording parrot was served for lunch in the first class cabin 30 minutes before the crash.

    There was no lightning strike. Wilson G was just delivering a ton of stuff to the islands when he was told to ditch the cargo, pronto, as the money paid turned out to be dollars, rather than yuan as promised. This was the best he could come up with given only 15 minuted to landing…
