  • Two ticket airport layover without checked bags?

    So I am flying LAX to Boston on Delta Air Lines (thanks to my sister screwing up my airline ticket because she was only thinking of herself and needed to go to Boston after our trip to LA so she booked me on the same flight as her...when I need to go home in NJ) and I do not have checked bags. Luckily I got an inexpensive flight to EWR on JetBlue 2.5 hours after arrival into Boston. Since I do not have to go to baggage claim will the gate agent care whether or not I went through security again in Boston?

  • How to decline a graduate school offer after accepting it?

    HELP!! I am in sort of a "dilemma" here. I accepted an offer to a graduate school out of state (200 miles away). Now I got accepted to a school that my whole family likes which is in the same state as my house (50 miles away). I am not going to say which schools but I will call it Grad School A and Grad School B. How can I politely send a rejection letter to the graduate school I sent to Grad School A?? At least I did not send any fees to Grad School A.

    I do understand that it is common for future college students to do this when they end up getting accepted to their dream college that they initially got wait-listed for.

  • Any tips for passing the private pilot exam?

    I take my private pilot checkride in a Cessna 172R this coming Tuesday. I am excited but nervous at the same time.

    In order to prepare me for the exam, my current primary flight instructor has prepared me for both the oral and the flight portion of the test. My flight school's policy is to have students do a stage check (in this case, a mock checkride) with a primary instructor AND with an instructor other than my primary instructor. Both instructors said I fly well and is comfortable with my flying; there were minor things I did need to fix so before I signed up for IACRA for the checkride, I flew with my primary instructor to fix anything I was weak in which I improved in. Once I got signed up for IACRA, I reviewed my flight log, the maintenance log and then my instructor emailed me to let me know that I am good to schedule the exam and gave me my examiner's phone number. I also got to know about my examiner's brief biography; her name is Peggy and she was a retired United Airlines captain. Speaking with her on the phone, she was very friendly. I was also told that she is an understanding person.

    I feel partially confident about passing. But I would appreciate additional tips for passing the checkride so I can be more confident; I'd prefer a professional answer from either an examiner, pilots who got a checkride with Peggy or...any pilots/instructors with experience with Cessna 172R. I live in New Jersey and in February, it is obviously cold and air can be a bit rough.

  • How long does it take to take the FAA private pilot written exam?

    When I took the pretests at my flight school that would get me qualified for the actual exam, I ended up taking about an hour on the most recent pretest to complete 50 questions. And I got a 92%. On the real exam I was told it was 60 questions and will be given 2 hours 30 minutes. I know each person is different but generally speaking, how long should I expect to sit down for my private pilot knowledge exam? Just curious.

  • Why are omelettes served with home fries and toast in restaurants?

    Regardless of which state I am in, and regardless of which type of restaurant I go to, there is something universal I have observed on the menu. In this case, at least in the US, I noticed that omelettes are always served with a side of home fries and toast. Why is that? Is this a tradition or something? Does this make omelette-eaters have healthier diet?

  • What is up with "Marijuana" restaurant?

    Lately on the internet I have been seeing what looks identical to a McDonald's sign, but instead it is all green and reads "MARIJUANA" instead of McDonald's. What is up with that? And do people do photo editing in order to make these green Marijuana restaurant signs?

    In case you don't know what I am talking about, here is the link to a picture of the Marijuana restaurant sign:

  • Nonstop flight from Sydney to Newburgh?

    As a student pilot, I am basically addicted to One thing I observed is that today is that there is an Emirates flight from Sydney, Australia to Stewart International Airport near Newburgh, New York, USA. I have never heard of any nonstop flights between Australia and the east coast of the United States. Like I said before, the airline is Emirates, and the flight number is 4857. It left Sydney on December 28, 2012 at about 7:30 AM and is scheduled to arrive Stewart the same day at about 8:00 AM. Does anyone know what this is all about?

  • How do you get to your final destination from Incheon Airport at around 4 in the morning?

    I am hoping to go to Seoul, Korea in the summer of 2013. And I am also hoping to get there on Korean Air Flight 86, which leaves JFK at 12:50 AM (I live in New Jersey, USA) and then arrives Incheon International Airport at 3:50 AM. First, how long is the immigration/passport line at Incheon at 4 in the morning? And to those of you who have arrived in Incheon Airport at 4 in the morning whereas the final destination is in Seoul (or the nearby surrounding area, such as Ilsan or Uijeongbu or Bucheon), whether it is a relative's house, academic institution or a business meeting, how did you get to your final destination from the airport, if you didn't take a taxi? My mom is a bit worried that there would be nobody to pick me up at that hour (although my grandfather is likely able to), and the first train out of the airport leaves at 5:20 AM.

    I know that I have asked a few Koreans in my area who has taken flight 86, who said that they had a ride or that they waited for the train, but I feel like it is appropriate to ask here as well.

  • Is "Call Me Maybe" and "YOLO" popular in Seoul, Korea?

    I am going to be completely honest here. The song "Call Me Maybe" (and the associated meme) and the acronym "YOLO" is just getting to be so overused here in the United States that it is just very annoying. It is kinda ruining my life because I can no longer stand hearing "Call Me Maybe" playing and people calling out "YOLO" (I feel thankful for having my own iPod). Next week I am going to be leaving for a seven week trip to Seoul, South Korea and I am wondering if I will have to deal with these annoying memes there as much as here in the United States.

  • Will I make my Mayair flight?

    I am going to Cozumel in August. Since I was unable to fly straight from the US into Cozumel, I have to fly to Cancun instead and travel to Cozumel. I am still debating whether to take the 20 minute MAYAir flight or the more economical bus and ferry. But if I do choose the quick plane ride, I am wondering if I can make it. According to my flight schedule, I arrive Cancun Airport on Delta Air Lines at 11:25 AM. Then I have to go through immigration/passport check and then the MAYAir flight to Cozumel leaves Cancun Airport at 1:00 PM. I may also have to retrieve my bags from the baggage claim, check in again and go through security. Is this recommended?

  • Is there a direct transportation between Cancun International Airport and Playa del Carmen?

    I am planning to go to Cozumel in August and due to our time restrictions, we have to strictly go on a certain date. As a result, on the day we are headed to Cozumel, flights are unavailable to Cozumel on Delta Air Lines (we HAVE to fly Delta because of miles we have, and that we do not want to pay thousands of dollars on airfare). So we have to fly to Cancun. I was wondering if there was a bus or something that goes directly from Cancun International Airport to this place called Playa del Carmen (about an hour trip south on Route 307) before I take the ferry to Cozumel.

    PS: Fortunately, on my flight home, I will be able to fly directly out of Cozumel International Airport.

  • Does it really take a cruise ship 15 hours to take a 22 mile trip from LA to Catalina Island?

    I like to look at cruise itineraries for fun and I saw that Princess Cruises has an itinerary that starts in Los Angeles and its first stop is at Catalina Island. According to the itinerary, it leaves Los Angeles at 4 PM and arrives Catalina Island the next morning at 7 AM. How is this possible? At this rate, the ship would be even slower than a swimmer (at an average speed of between 1-2 mph), and a regular ferry takes just over an hour.

  • is it just me or is this OCD common?

    I am in the early stages of adulthood, so therefore I have become more mature and being accustomed to the adult world. However, now that I am done with school for the semester, I am looking up cruise itineraries for fun and it looks addicting. I even spend hours looking up each cruise ships and the deck plans. I am especially looking to go on a Europe cruise without my younger sister, especially since she got to go to France without me on a school trip (in another words, since my sister went on a vacation without me, I am thinking to go on a vacation without her). Furthermore, I even made a reservation on Norwegian Cruise Line for a two-night weekend cruise to nowhere from New York City on Norwegian Jewel on February 2013. I presume that I have an OCD with cruises. I really do like traveling, but I wonder if this OCD with cruise ships are common, especially with people who likes traveling.

  • What is a weekend cruise like?

    I've heard that cruise ships (such as Carnival, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, etc.) have "cruise to nowhere" weekend cruises. What is it like? If it does not have a specific destination, does the ship constantly move during the entire cruise or does it stop at a certain point in the ocean during the cruise period?

  • Why do cruise ships arrive extremely early in the morning in their last stop?

    For example, I went on a Carnival cruise in 2003, whereas it started and ended in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Once we got back to San Juan, where the cruise ended, it arrived at 5:00 AM while other ports had an arrival time of 7 or 8 AM, with one arrival of 11 AM.

    I also like to look at cruise itineraries for fun and also notice the same thing. Last port arrival at 6, 5 and even 4 AM.

  • Why won't the morons on YouTube realize that I did not sneeze on my video of Pride of Maui?

    This is a follow up of the previous question:;_ylt=AqUTC...

    On this video,

    Youtube thumbnail

    The sound at 4:11 was the sound of the boat hitting the wave on the rough ocean and what looks like a saliva is really the water being splashed into the boat. I am already starting to get an overwhelming amount of retarded comments from different people now who keep thinking I sneezed and that keep saying "bless you". They won't believe me when I explain what really is going on, and the way their comment looks like is similar to the usual retarded comments that are posted on YouTube videos. I am now considering disabling commenting for this reason because it is pissing me off when I have other things in my life that I need to take care of.
