Ryanair mulls charge for toilets

I quite like it when Ryanair pull these stunts. Chutzpah1 is always good, and people who travel Ryanair know what to expect, surely? The cheapest possible fare, and nothing free. It's hardly a secret that they don't tell you about until you get to the airport.

Consumer group Which? said the airline was putting "profit before passengers".

Yes. This is because they're a business, not a charity. And it always annoys me when people moan that the airports they fly to are miles from anywhere. They fly you to the airport you book a ticket for; it's your job to find out in advance how to get from there to your final destination. If you arrive in the middle of the night at an airport not knowing how to make your onward journey, you're an idiot.


Psychedelic fish 'is new species'

This is an excellent fish. Though I'm not sure 'concentric' is the correct word to describe its stripes.


Baby died after 'mother's kiss'

Christ. That's horrible and upsetting.

What was the mother doing contracting oral herpes for the first time when she was 8 months gone? Slag.

You can carry the virus for years before actually having an outbreak - outbreaks are often brought on by stress and reduced immune levels. Such as being pregnant.

Still, she must have kissed a man at some point. Disgusting.

Yeah, I've come to quite admire Leary's cojones, too. And yeah, proft before passengers: that's what capitalism does, LIKE THE FVCKING BANKS. This shouldn't be a surpise. If I'm paying twenty quid for a flight to Morocco, I'm pretty much prepared to be fired there in a cannon.

I kind of agree with this, except for a) describing their new high-ticket service as "blowjob class" and b) the news that they're going to start letting people use their mobiles on the planes. I mean, there's no way in hell I'm getting on one of his flights again anyway, but dude!
