You might also want to change the site design sometime this decade.

Classic.

That reminds me of this Chinese take out place I used to live near that was right next door to some vet clinic. They were called Hon's Wok and Cat Clinic, shiat you not.

So you had | Hon's Wok | Cat Clinic |

It's in Saint Louis, right by Barnes Jewish hospital. Cats go in the front, out the back, in the back and out the front on a plate. Or at least that's what we had convinced ourselves of. I lol'd everytime I drove by it.

Not entirely relevant, but the "poor placement" made me think of that place.

But that's how the media creates fear. People are reading about a new airline but subliminally thinking that they're gonna crash because they're cheap.

There are at least 2 (that I know of) Chinese Restaurants right next to Animal Clinics here in Springfield, MA. It's eery.

Haha. Needs a 'FAIL' caption.
 
2007-09-20 01:48:36 PM  
Yeah, might not want to publish it above the article about a plane crash either.

Talk about your economy flights

I still see the plane crash on the main page. So I wonder if it changes automatically.

there's nothing subliminal about a photo of a plane crash RIGHT NEXT to an article about planes. The connections are pretty much out in the open.

I think "Low Cost" is what makes it funny.

Only a moran wouldn't realize the pic goes with the second story.

zobear To you sir, I tip my hat.
 
2007-09-20 01:51:45 PM  
The crash photo goes with the second story on the page. Still made me giggle, though. ^_^
 
2007-09-20 01:53:05 PM  
Isn't it about time to add a 'Tennessee' tag?

First it was Justis/Barbie and the state trooper, then it was Knox County undergoing a Federal civil right investigation for moving a library - one block, and now this.

Just outside Detroit (Garden City or Westland or maybe Livonia?) there was a Kitty's Chow Chinese place that made me giggle every time I drove by.

Yes, that must be it. When I load the page I also see the plane crash, and not the still-shot from Airplane.
 
2007-09-20 01:54:58 PM  
Surely, you can't be serious.

In Flagstaff there is a Planned Parenthood with a Chinese food restaurant on one side, and a Japanese food restaurant on the other.

As far as articles about aircraft accidents, that one was surprisingly well-written relative to other aviation stories.
 
2007-09-20 02:19:41 PM  
I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.

OregonVet: Only a moran wouldn't realize the pic goes with the second story.

Actually you're being fairly idiotic. The point is that the site should have known better than to put that photo next to that article. If you have a story of a pedophile on the front page you don't put a picture of your town's mayor next to it. It is just common sense editing.

What do you make of this, Johnny?
 
2007-09-20 02:26:57 PM  
But will they have tasers?

Rex Kramer: [talking to Steve McCroskey] Our only hope is to build this man up. We gotta give him all the confidence we can.

[to Striker]
Rex Kramer: Striker, have you ever flown a multi-engine plane before?

Ted Striker: No, never.

Rex Kramer: shiat. It's a God damn waste of time. There's no way he can land this plane.
