Surviving the Facilities

Seatbelts on a plane
Really, what’s the point
We all know the risks
If we cared for our safety at all
We would watch the
Safety demonstration

I complain it's not fair
My life ended
Because I didn't take care
If only I had stopped to look within
When opening
The overhead bin

Thunder cracks, I see his eyes
Perched there to my surprise
Is a gremlin on the wing
And like a hobbit with the ring
He slips in and out of sight
I shouldn't have taken shrooms before the flight

Myth: Thunder storms increase the risk of an airplane crash. FALSE

🎵Cos I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
With the changing corona restrictions
I might have to quarantine again 🎵

Fun Flying Fact: In the 1930s, the Royal Air Force used a flying boat nicknamed the “whistling sh*thouse”. The Supermarine Stranraer was fitted with a toilet that would open directly to the air. When the seat was up the airflow through the toilet would make a whistling sound, hence the nickname.

Senryü: it stinks of survival

I would like a seat
as close to the rear toilet
as is possible

Flying Fact: The tail is the safest place to be during a crash
A 2007 study by Popular Mechanics looked at 36 years of NTSB crash data and found the back of the plane gave passengers the best chance for survival.

  1. “Comin’ in from London, from over the pole
    Flyin’ in a big airliner
    Chickens flyin’ everywhere around the plane
    Could we ever feel much finer?

    Comin’ into Los Angeles
    Bringin’ in a couple of keys
    Don’t touch my bags if you please, mister customs man”
