Well, what do you know? I've been in two... one of which left me embarassed and
the other one left me with some significant changes.... I know you know what I
mean. But I digress....
I was sitting in the back of a Jetstream once with an overly chatty passenger
once. We hit some turbulence and I declared loudly: "SURE HOPE WE DON'T
CRASH!" The rest of the ride was in blessed silence.
