    Interesting read / advice on a theme what not many would dare even to think about from FOX NEWS!;)

    Write a note, make sure I get full mileage credit for the flight.

    Sorry to TC, but is it worth justifying such a lame excuse for a newspiece with even one minute of our precious time?

    That's why I always have a parachute on my carryon.

    I think maybe some James Bond thing like a carry-on that has in the handle a device to cut airplane windows while maintaining the air pressure, then catapults you through it and becomes your parachute----that's what I'd carry.

    I would evacuate (in my pants).

    Sitting on a plane or booked on a plane? Booked, I'd probably try to rebook. Sitting, I'd remind myself that most threats are empty, and I'd read and try to keep from fidgeting and checking my watch to see how they're doing on checking the threat. Still, I'd call my sweetie, just in case.

    Even scarier, what if you checked in for the flight using united.bomb?

    Get on the waitlist for a later connecting flight. You're probably not going to make your scheduled connection.

    Then post your frustration to Facebook.

    I'd just go back to sleep or read my book or do whatever it was that I was doing. Chances are it's not a bomb and, if it is, you're kinda hosed. Might as well go in peace.

    Au contraire, mes amis. At the bottom of the piece, I found this gem regarding six unusual uses for my dishwasher.
