Pop quiz. Which makes the airline more money? A $1500.00 ticket to Disney World, or a $400.00 ticket to Disney World?

Do you really think Disney World would close or planes would stop flying at that price? Nope.

Do they sell $80,000 trucks? Yes
Do they sell $8.00 cups of coffee?
Do they sell $40,000.00 watches?
Do they rent 500 Sq ft apartments for $5,000 a month in Manhattan? Yes

There will always be customers at any price.

From what friends with shingles have told me, covid is the better choice.

I have known several people that got shingles. One of them had a shingles outbreak in his anus (and he didn’t even know Knooger) Talk about agony . NFW I want to deal with that. I got the shingles vaccine last year.

I suspect if airlines could make more money keeping prices high they’d do it. There’s this thing called supply and demand and they have it mastered pretty well.

A: The masses who buy airline tickets based on one thing, and one thing only; low price. Airlines are simply giving most people what they demand. If people really cared about those things you list, Spirit, Frontier, SouthWest, Allegiant and all the other "discount" airlines wouldn't exist, yet they're always packed full.

If you're willing to pay more for First/Business Class, you still get large seats, meals, more leg room, better service, etc. Buy cheap tickets, get cheap service.
Since you have the airline industry all figured out, could you switch gears and tell us how to rid us of the entrenched POS’ in high .gov office? Thnaks. In advantage even.

Yes there is a “new” vaccine. It is much more effective but requires two doses. Most insurance covers it for people over 50

I'd rather get the Wu annually than the Singles even one time!

I'll probably upgrade the shot to the new one.

Do I get money back on the old one on trade?

No discount from the old shots I don't care about the Wu at all. I have been on the fence on the shingles shot for a while, but my dad had it a while back, and still gets some flare up chit nerve wise. I may just get this one.

You’re damn right. We’re trying to get tix for Cancun. Getting even a reasonable price is like speculating oil futures.

I just want to get from point A to point B. I’m one of them. Make it cheap. I don’t fly often. I can put up with anything for 3 hrs. I may not shower and WILL dress like a slob. Maybe eat extra spicy chili and boiled eggs beforehand. Just because. YW.

@Steve_R @Vegas
I just got this from Slavens Racing

Quote:
Hello Fellow Off-Road Enthusiast:

Once again our trails are under attack! I've been enjoying the Moab area for more than 40 years and I'm very angry at this latest attempt by elitist, self-entitled tree huggers to block motorized access to this area. The Moab area is a gem that can never be duplicated or replaced and should remain open to all types of motorized use. We contribute millions of dollars annually to the Moab area economy via the consumption of fuel, maintenance, food and lodging and our exit will devastate the local economy.

Please use the link below to provide a polite, unemotional comment that expresses your concerns. Threats, curse words and emotional comments will not promote our cause.

Please send in your comment NOW! Time is of the essence. Comments must be submitted by this coming Monday, April 26th.

Talking points for your comment submission:
Our positive financial impact on the local economy
Our volunteer work to build new trail systems
Our volunteer work to maintain and improve jeep roads, ATV and MC trails
Our financial contribution to the area trails via purchasing off-road stickers - millions of dollars annually - hikers and bicycle riders contribute nothing
Our right as taxpayers to use public land
How you, your family and friends use and enjoy the area

Regards,

Jeff Slavens

Motorized off-road enthusiast,
Our trails in Moab are being threatened! Southwest Utah Wilderness Alliance is trying to shutdown 330,000 acres of motorized recreation access in the Labyrinth Rims/Gemini Bridge Special Recreation Area outside of Moab. This includes every trail west of Highway 191 and north of town to the interstate. Affected trails include: Gemini Bridges, Rusty Nail, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim, Golden Crack, Poison Spider, Monitor & Merimac, Seven Mile Rim, Bull Canyon, White Wash Dunes, 10 Mile Canyon, Bartlett, Tusher, Determination Towers, Mashed Potatoes, Secret Spire, Dubinky, 3D, Dead Cow, The Tubes, and all the atv/single-track surrounding the dunes.

Make your voice heard! Visit https://eplanning.blm.gov/eplanning-...ct/2001224/510. Click the green box on the left that says "Participate Now" and then click on the green box on the right that says "Participate Now". Follow the submission process and urge the BLM to keep this wonderful area open. Submissions are open until 4/26/21. Please feel free to share this link to anyone who enjoys riding in the beauty that is Moab!

corned beef w/ cabbage the evening before a commercial flight is my go-to move. with mandatory masks, I've upgraded that meal to include a side of baked beans.

point the exhaust fan down and away, act like you're sleeping, and let the flatulence flow baby!!!
