I was looking forward to the flight, and I've never made a post on /. I figured it was a race against others who probably knew of this flight. I wanted to make a clear summary, and noticed having to re-read the "longest" part, so I tried to clarify it, but obviously didn't read it over carefully enough to catch how redundantly pointless and repetitive (pun intended) the parenthetical clarification was.
I knew I must've done something wrong, as it is my first accepted article. Oh well, only fools make the same mistake twice, and I'm not a fool, so I'll learn from my mistake.
