Australia's right and ideas are dangerous. It is imperative that weapons and the blueprints thereof, of all kinds, be reserved solely for the ruling political Party, for the safety of our Sohne and Töchter, for the future of the Fatherland.

Burning the blueprints and subversive books is only a first necessary step in bringing safety to our good, honest nation. Those who do not see the rightness of this action are so blinded they see the sky as green and fields as blue, and ought to be sterilized.

Samoa Airlines already started this and no surprise. The economic realities of 2x the fuel per ham means they have to charge more. It baffles me why American airlines, which are nearly as vulnerable to obese passengers, don't follow suit. I'm fed up with subsidizing the obese travelers that slow down lineups, endanger other passengers with their bulk & take up far more than their share of seating.

Last flight I took a 400lb greaseball was blocking 3/4 of the aisle, spreading his way like a giant fried egg into his wife's seat too. Safety hazard is putting it mildly, that guy couldn't have moved quickly if his life depended on it and he'd block anybody else with his bulk if a real emergency happened.

Hamplanets should pay per weight and if they use the space of 2 seats, make 'em pay for 2 seats. Fatties take more fuel to move and cause everybody else discomfort.

For an extra serving of justice they should always be seated next to the screaming baby owners.

I present as evidence: racially diversifying the Presidency hasn't helped US gov't leadership much. It remains unclear why "Black Caucus" thinks the aggregate albedo of Apple's workforce in California has an effect on the company's efficiency, productivity or any other meaningful metric.

Not to mention that 99% of the people doing Apple's work are Chinese.

This whole "article" is an inflammatory red herring. Why mislead us that race is the only criteria upon which access is granted/denied? Could just as easily be blood type, maternal lineage, gender or anything at all. Big surprises in store for a lot of folks who think skin color is important :)
