I remember reading, many years ago, that the next generation of jumbo jets would have gambling aboard. The artist rendition was the upper leven was standard seating and lower level had a casino with regular table games.

As much as a degenerate as I am, I just can't see the need or the profitability of such an arrangement.



If you spend 12+ hours in the air like a flight to Asia even the 3 movies only take up 1/2 the time.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

Put me on a 13 hour flight to Australia, with a craps table on board, and I would be in heaven. Now THAT would be a way to travel.


That is, until you reach the clouds that the pilot can't see because it's dark (there's going to be some part of that flight that's going to be dark if you're flying east) and the radar doesn't detect them, but then the plane is shaking like crazy. Have fun playing any table game when that happens.

Virtual craps on the screen on the seat in front of you would work, if you're willing to settle for that.

bird species looks different, and interesting. Not humans.


A rather absurd comparison. If you're going to go to biological classifications of animals, you must note that Homo sapiens are the only surviving species in the Homo genus. Not much opportunity to compare/contrast one living species to another within the genus.

On the other hand, more than 50 new species of birds have been discovered just this century. The numerous species of animals that are considered birds are included in genera and families throughout the Aves class. That's how you get such different appearances.

If you wanted to make an equivalent comparison of the species of humans to every other species in the same biologic class, you would have to compare to all of the mammals. I think you should be able to find quite a bit of different appearances in the Mammalia class for humans, perhaps as much or more as for the Aves class for birds; e.g., human vs. cow vs. platypus. And if you looked just within one genus of birds, I'm not sure you could even tell one from another.

Not really. I went to the nude beach all the time
in Santa Barbara with my then girlfriend. Nudity
is boring to the point of falling asleep. Birds are
much nicer to look at.

Your comment was to the effect that there is little difference between humans (within one species) as opposed to the interesting differences between birds. If the only bird species you got to watch were Rock Pigeons, I expect it wouldn't take so very long for you to decide that they are very much alike and not all that interesting to you in their differences.

Speaking of pigeons. In Santa Barbara the city cemetery
is on a high cliff over looking the ocean, on the way to
Montecito. The nude beach in the 70's was right below
the high cliff. Every week day at about noon, if you looked up,
there was at least a dozen on more men in white tee
shirts eating brown bagged lunches peering down at all
the nude people on the beach. Some had binoculars. It
was the cemetery labor staff having lunch.

I think I'd rather look at a good looking naked woman over a naked bird.



Its group nakedness thats repulsive. Groups of naked people,
like on the plane, look ridiculous. A nude beach looks ridiculous.
A single naked woman can be sexualized, not so a group.

Wow, Bob. You may have lost your T-count, but no 20-year-old dude would agree with you. Some naked humans are def more interesting than other naked humans.
