I’ve always wondered where the SUV proliferation in the US came from. This article assures me that it’s because the US federal government tried to make cars more fuel efficient. Interesting, if it’s correct. Nick Hac.
He hasn’t slept in something like 48 hours now. He’s a loony.
On of the funnier parts of the trip over was listening to the Channel 9 “from the flight deck”. Before they could take of the United plane insisted on burning off 1,000 pounds of fuel. How long did it take? 5 minutes of idling and driving around in circles. The airline was fairly ordinary though — no screens in the back of seats. 5 inches of extra leg room for premium economy, but that only put them about 2 inches ahead of Qantas. Catering was nothing special. No little care package for during the flight. No face mask.
I’d fly United again, but only if I didn’t get to chose the airline.

Well, I got here. Nice hotel, nice staff on check in. Easy drive from the San Francisco airport for us foreigners. The San Francisco airport seems a lot nicer than the one in Los Angeles as well.

Paul Allen’s Science Fiction Museum sounds pretty cool. Next time I’m in Seattle…
