Did you travel back in time, I thought concord was scrapped a long time ago!

2. City 1?

I always figured City 1 would be New York or something. Or London, if I'm being vaguely patriotic.

Actually, I always wanted to know what CNCT stood for on the train departure board...

"I got hired by Valve, you know. So... umm... can I get moved up to First Class?"

Hey, if your air steward is a gamer it might just happen! ;)

My Charlie-Brooker-inspired keywords managed to get my OWN BLOG blocked on this 'ere fancy business-class lounge PC things.

But I'm now on the free WiFi, routing via my home-grown VPN. Hooray!

On a list of unwise activities to undertake in a airport awaiting a flight to the United States, using the airport's internet service to access a website sub-titled "Carnage" is likely to be quite highly placed on said list!

I suspect that some suspicious glances have been cast over this blog in the last hour checking for other keywords and phrases such as "bomb" and "death to America" and such like. Lucky for you no-one is going to post such phrasing here, so you're ok .. oh wait ..

Anyway, we, the aforementioned unexpectedly lovely "vast numbers of random people", wish you a safe and comfortable trip to the beautiful State of Washington ( I've been there myself ) and look forward to being not-too-annoying-we-hope constant virtual companions in your new American life :-).

9. where else?

Heathrow Airport, I'd imagine, if wikipedia is right about there being one there.

...where it is being mothballed to keep Richard Branson's grubby hands off it.

11. Ha!

What you don't realise, is that Valve have had that concorde refitted inside with a long, but thin resteraunt. And then they chartered it for their new employee :)

Anyways, the one in Heathrow is just a replica, kept there to hide the real one from Branson. Which is kept in my city - Edinburgh. :P

I believe I shall find this part of the blog quite entertaining/interesting.

Chicago's a bit flat, innit?

(And humid. Obviously needs more snow-capped mountains.)

I'm surprised as well that IE7 hasn't blocked this site for pishing or something clever. On the other hand, it is IE7 afterall.
