Apparently, tests have proved inconclusive as to whether seatbelts on buses would help in the event of most accidents or not. The argument being, lap belts can actually cause more damage to the lower back and head without also having the shoulder restraint as well(not practical?). Buses are designed, for the most part, to locate the passengers ABOVE the likely area of impact(they say), however, there's always certain situations where these designs and arguments don't apply.

One of my old health teachers said a peanut butter and banana sandwich was better than sex.

Anyone agree?

Not I. \:\/ Your old health teacher either needed a better love life or was trying very hard to convince you and your fellow classmates that premarital sex wasn't any fun. \:D ;\)


Here's my question:

I've always wondered how flight plans work. With my only "piloting experience" coming from Microsoft Flight Simulator, I've always been curious as to what the process of "filing a flight plan" involves. I bet we have pilots around here. Do you hand someone a note? Call a phone number? Mail a letter?

You hear it when plane crashes, or disappears - always about checking the flight plan. If you're a pilot, and your intent is to just go up and fly around your 'neightborhood' to do some sight-seeing, what do you file? What does it say? Who gets it? And where do they go?

I've flown with my aunt who is a pilot several times. When we've gone we never had to say anything about where we are going...just need permission to takeoff and land.

Looks like flight plans are optional for civilians, and a damn good idea if you're not going to land at the same airport you're taking off from.
