    The US Dept of Transportation is now accepting public comments on possibly banning peanuts from airplanes for the benefit of those allergic. I have mixed feelings about this. WTF would miss the wretched things?

    But part of me suspects this is more of the "accommodate me, I'm ultra-sensitive" bullshit that has stolen so much of our social lives so far. Either way, it's kinda sorta hard to imagine anyone but a peanut farmer giving a shit.

    Any food that wears a monocle and a top hat is a stylish killer.

    Keep the nuts and let Darwin sort it out.

    Moot.

    Many airlines have already switched to pretzels: Cheaper and the high road of protecting the allergic.

    A big part of me suspects that what we now call "allergic" was once better known as "insufferably fuss budget".

    Warning. Pretzels may contain peanut product or Chinese peasant body parts.

    The nastiest ones are the fake mustard flavored ones.

    Now I would restrict the serving of soft pretzels to old un-viagra imbibed men on planes.

    Of all the fucking things going on right now, the DoT is worrying about this? I'd rather they ban fat people, nothing makes me sicker than having to sit next to fat fuck who's sweating all over me.

    The way to avoid this is to sit in the back of the plane, it is a trade secret that they have to put all the really fat people balanced right near the wings.

    The sex is better too in the back plane toilet, even better than first class.

    Women who like it in the back are kinky.
