THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

These are a few of the things which North Cyprus isn't. It isn't an over-developed, tourist choked mecca for nightclubbing teens and raucous stag and hen parties. It isn't crammed with high rise concrete apartment blocks and unsightly new developments thrown up with no regard for history or aesthetics. And it isn't expensive, overcrowded or hard to get to. So many times you'll have been promised a paradise on earth of a holiday destination, only to be disappointed by the less than stunning reality. Well, Northern Cyprus is different. In a world of would be hidden gems, it's the real deal, an unspoiled island lying in a crystal clear sea which is still enough of a secret for each individual holidaymaker to feel like it's theirs and theirs alone. With mile after mile of stunning coastline complete with beaches of warm golden sand, the island is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway, with a climate that makes it wonderful to visit in Summer, and still pleasant in the winter months.

Cheap Flights to Hong Kong
Of late, the UK travellers seeking cheap flights to Hong Kong repeatedly experience overbooking profiles. The dominant carriers, such as Air China, China Southern Airlines, China Eastern, Dragon, Cathay Pacific, KLM and British Airways despite adding new flights to Hong Kong and Macau frequently, often face exceeding number of passengers willing to explore this part of the world. The causes for this can be many.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the Asia-Pacific countries are showing higher growth of air traffic. As per the IATA Director General Giovanni Bisignani, “Europe is recovering at half the speed of Asia with passenger growth of 7.8 percent compared to the 15.5 percent growth in Asia-Pacific”. It is interesting to know that The People’s Republic of China bagged the maximum growth of demand for air travel in June.

I found this I don't own this.

1. At the airport, wear a uniform and claim you are the pilot, get annoyed if they don't believe you but DONT give up, see how far you can get WARNING! may result in you being arrested.

2. Whilst boarding the plane, say in a loud voice "THAT WING SURE DOES LOOK RUSTY!!"

3. When everyone is seated, do your own demonstration of what to do in an emergency, let this include comical situations such as "in the likely event of the plane setting alight and becoming a plummeting fireball of death, please remember to tighten your seatbelt" look surprised when you are the only one laughing.

4. when the plane is still on the ground, Rock back and forth in your seat and say aloud "THIS TURBULANCE SURE IS ROUGH!!"

5. Wear rags and a headscarf, claim that your name is Svetolafoson Frojhkyhkjuhjdj and that you are being deported back to Estonia, look pleased when your told that this plane is not going there. say "Really?!, u haf not met me if zey ask zen, ok?!"

I found these funny jokes. I wasn't on these flights.

"Welcome aboard Southwest Flight XXX to YYY. To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt, and if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.

In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face.

If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with two or more small children, decide now which one you love more.

Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, we'll but try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Southwest Airlines."

... after landing ...

"As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses.

This is from one flight I got to experience today and what the person next to me did.

When flying please remember to not do these things so everyone can have a nice trip ^_^

Clear your throat
If you have something wrong with your throat where you have to clear it every 3-5 seconds, get some medicine for it, everyone around you will appreciate it.

Only take up YOUR seat
Though you may have a skinnier person next to you, that does not mean you should take up half of their seat, they paid for the full seat and would appreciate having all of it and not moving to the corner.

Leave your shoes on
Now I know some may not like this for a long flight, but a short flight just leave them on. You may not be able to smell the stench of your feet but others may and would appreciate being able to continue breathing out of their noses.

Don't pick at skin
You may have some dead skin on your fingers, arms, etc but on the aeroplane in such a small space you shouldn't pick at it and just drop the scraps on the floor, it's creepy.

When flying from Sweden to Australia, my husband prefers to connect in Singapore because their airport is sooo beautiful. And it is, gorgeous I mean.

BUT... I prefer to await my connection at Hong Kong's relatively new airport. Why? Because they have a very cool hair salon.

See, by the time we land to await our next leg of the loooooong flight, I'm ready to be pampered. This salon is so great that I have run in there like a lunatic before with 30 minutes until my next flight screaming for a wash, cut, and blow dry.

They did it.

They did it very well. They posted one person at the door to watch for signs of boarding on my flight while the other guy worked his magic. I was impressed, and now fly through Hong Kong whenever possible because of that hair salon.

So like, tell me about your airport loyalties. I'm always looking for great layovers ;)
