Snotnose: That's just farking great. Everytime I get on a plane I have to put up with some fat ass taking up the space my fat ass needs. Now I'm going to have to deal with more violation by blubber.

DeathByGeekSquad: Aisle seats should be reserved for people over 6', and fark all of you who think that just because you're rail thin - everyone else has to be. Some of us actual have that stuff called muscle, which makes us have different dimensions than someone who has trouble opening doors.


Hell, some of us just have a frame that isn't made for the pathetic dimensions they expect you to fit into. When the seat is only 17" wide and my shoulders are 24", it's just not going to work out well. So no, drunk lady who got on at the last minute because she spent all her time at the bar and insists on wedging herself into the middle seat, no I cannot give you any more arm room because physics does not allow it.

As many men do, I "run hot", as in my body puts off a lot of heat. It not only makes me a choice snuggling companions in the winter months, it also gives me a rather insidious defense; all I have to do is let the blubber stay in contact with me for about 10 minutes. Before they realize it the fatso is feeling like they're cooking, and they start shifting away. A few subtle shifts on my part, and within about 25 minutes they'll be doing everything they can to keep their blubber contained in the seat, instead of spilling over the armrest into terra del heato.

This. It's the dimensions of the seat's frame that are changing, not the area that the passenger sits in that are changing.

So fatties are fine, but boney asses get even less cushion.

If you're a bony arse, then you're getting club class transportation for economy prices. So regardless whether you had to work out every 26 minutes and survive on "rocket", "soya" and "cous-cous" only, or were just born a midget, either way you're doing OK out of the deal so

For once in my life, being a short guy is okay.


Actually, you are winning on food, water, boose (you pay less to the brewer and in duty per unit lareyness). You get more out of cigs and illegal narcotics. Houses seem bigger and ceilings seem higher, so you can sort-of pretend your park home is something like Saddam's grand palace.

OTOH the thing about rain reaching you last is a myth - it has more momentum when it does reach you, resulting in larger downward-directed impulse, helping to keep you short. This is why height inequality only rises in spite of Obama's spendthrift programmes. Obama is to blame in fact.

The key to avoid sitting next to fatties on flights is to grab seating near the back of the plane. With any luck, the blubberbusses won't make it that far.

They really need to re-allow smoking on flights what with the TSA happy endings and all. But I suppose even worse service for the same prices fits the theme.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Why not try "by-the-pound" pricing?


For those of us who can be safely stored in overhead compartments, I'm perfectly ok with this business plan.
