caddisfly: StopLurkListen: GPS needs a line-of-sight to the satellite, so unless they drop your luggage off in a field ... good luck

Please tell me you're trolling.  My iphone can tell which room of my house I'm sitting in.


Yes, we know. Put your pants back on.

megarian: Some luggage guy in Mexico City stole 2 liters of tequila and underwear from my bag. They proceeded to ship my bag to Maui.

So my luggage has been to Maui and I haven't. Assholes.


That's what you get for infusing tequila with underwear, ya weirdo.

What happens when too many GPSs are in one building at the same time...

Once on board a plane, a passenger can use a smartphone app to check that their bag is in the hold and alert flight crew if it's not there.

Don't knock it 'til you try it. Now, if you don't remove the worm...yeah, that's weird.

Your underwear has worms?


Depends on the Tequila.

Here's a solution, you can fly with as much crap as you can carry, if you can physically lift your bags they go on the plane. Once onboard there are no seats, you sit on your bags.
Then all that spare room we've just opened up by having an empty hold can be put to good use by having a casino down there, or maybe a brothel.

Knock on wood, but of all the times my luggage has been lost, only once was it on the outbound leg.  If it takes an extra day for US Scare to delivery my dirty laundry to my front door, I'm not going to be too put out.

I had US Air lose my luggage twice in the same weekend.
