The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Locked in the Latrine

If it can go wrong, it will go wrong, as this article in The New York Post shows.  The pilot on a puddle jumper airliner got locked in the latrine.

You can listen to the audio and judge for yourself as to if the reporting is correct that states:
But crew members didn’t react well to the unexpected visit from a stranger trying to breach the highly secure area of the plane.
I thought the co-pilot (the "First Officer") did exactly what he should have.  The rules are:
  1. Maintain Aircraft Control
  2. Analyze the Situation
  3. Take Appropriate Action
You wouldn't believe how many folks fall down on the first rule.

As for this situation, the co-pilot, locked in the cockpit, has no idea what is really going on in the passenger compartment.  I think he did just the right thing.

And a thanks to Neal for sending this along to me.
