> If you are so afraid that you need to carry a gun to work with you, then you may want to consider moving to a safer area.

You mean live one place and work some place else? That's already covered. That's why roads are so full of commuters. Jobs are often located in places that you would never actually want to live. My current job is like that.

On the other hand, I've actually been to Paris and I have seen for myself what kind of weaponry they routinely carry around. You would think that with that kind of firepower they could easily put down any nonsense.

A lot of noise is made about "American gun culture" but it's the Europeans that routinely carry serious firepower around their cities.

Nope. A fit person should not have any problem with another 35lb bag. We are likely talking about former military officers here. These are people that at some point in their lives had to carry someone as big as you around. Possibly they even did that on a 20 or 30 mile march.

Nevermind the fact that the relevant bag likely has wheels...

> And how exactly would that solve this problem? The one of not having the flight book *in the plane*?

This is a perfect example of the helpless (and rigid) mentality of the Apple user.

The solution is pretty simple really...

1) Take one of those trucks that they use to load meals and snacks and sodas and fill it with manuals.

2) Drive up to the grounded plane.

3) Open the door.

4) Shove printed manuals through the door.
