History. Lather, rinse, repeat.

2017/05/20

     “Those /BAM/ noises in the fuselage, that shake the world, and the flash in the windows: lightning is repeatedly striking the plane. Also, the vacuum system that removes the business you dump into the toilet has enough force to suck your intestines out of your body and even crush your bones, so always stand up before you flush.”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2017-05-19) KNYO (and, three hours in, also KMEC) Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and enjoy.

Here’s what it makes me think: What kind of a world is this where someone who who will go out one day and pay a hundred million dollars for this shitty scribble gets a hundred million dollars in the first place?

The wonderful thing about capitalism. I like it that the /no-slam/ models are clearly marked with a standard sticker for that. Presumably the others slam like a gunshot and wake the whole house. Choice.
