This is a sad, tragic day for humanity. Anders Behring Breivik – the guy who massacred 77 people (the majority of them teenagers) in Norway last year – is busy being sentenced as we speak. The court has found him to be sane and sentenced him to a mere 21 years in prison, MINUS the 445 days he already spent in custody. Upon hearing his fate, he smiled as this is exactly what he was hoping for.

Flying is a nightmare, or rather, the facilities surrounding flying are a nightmare. Checking in two hours prior to your flight, going through the entire security rigmarole which sees you unpacking half of luggage and then having to squeeze it back in, and then rushing onto an overcrowded airplane only to wedge yourself in between an overweight, nervous flyer and a hyperactive five-year-old first timer.
