I was wandering around Twitter this morning and came across a tweet which ended up with lots of funny responses. The original tweet was hard to believe, but maybe not if you fly at all.
"Hey United, when I pay through the nose for 1st class so I can get work done, one of the things I like from my power outlets is electricity."
Someone asked, "did you ask the flight attendant about this?"
"Yes. She says the electricity cycles around the plane so everyone gets a turn. Seriously, I told her my turn hadn't come for an hour."
Then the comments:
"Maybe if the pilot tilts the plane some of it will run down to your seat."
"Listen man, we have enough power to run your laptop or the flaps, which do you want?"
"Translation: "You Republicans have too much power already. Use a pencil like the heroic, energy-frugal NYT journalists do!""
"Are you sure she wasn't talking about the "air", and not electricity."
"something broken. the flight attendant gave you the brush off. you already know this. AC inverters do not operate in this manner"
"Sounds like a blown fuse on the convenience receptacle distribution network."
