    Someone thinks they are too good for Papa Nurgle's Gifts. How ingrateful to reject the muculent sputum so thoughtfully offered!

    Sometimes I wonder if Jerry and Mike shouldn't be able to afford business class at this point.

    You don't think there are gross people in business class?

    I think they could, normally. And probably could here if they really wanted to. But have you ever seen business class to AUS? It's typically thousands of dollars. And sometimes even five figures. And they have a whole crew to take. I'm pretty sure Jerry would feel slimy just booking his family in business class and letting the rest ride coach, too. Plus Jerry didn't come from money. I know how that is. Even when you can afford a thing, you can't quite stomach it when you know you could get along okay and save thousands of dollars.

    How large is their crew anyways?

    The business class flight on Japan Airlines has a partition you can raise and lower between the compartments, so you're not really "seated next to" anyone if you don't want to be. I assume whatever airline goes to Australia has at least that much.

    Not sure, and not sure how much of his family goes to AUS these days. But it doesn't take much when you're multiplying by the thousands of dollars. Even if you just say 5-10, which is probably way lowballing it.

    Every time I've lucked in to flying first class it's felt like betrayal. Comfortable betrayal, but all the same.

    I managed to fly business to Europe a couple of times (for business). Since nobody else I knew was on the plane, there wasn't much betrayal. Plus the ice cream sundaes were nice.

    Damn the newspost cracked me up on this one. I get that a surprisingly high number of people on the forums don't read the comic, but i love the newsposts.

    If you really want to take a long trip I highly recommend business class if you can swing it. My partner and I played the credit card points game for years and built our trip around when the flights had the lowest point cost. I can't say whether the experience was down to simply being in business class, or because my partner gave the flight crew a gift bag of chocolates, or simple Japanese cultural courtesy, but it was easily the best flying experience of my life.

    When you asked this I thought you were talking about the Gympie-Gympie tree.
    But I guess it was just Australia level allergens and not toxins.

    I was gonna say Eucalyptus, that living firebomb that sloughs off ready-made tinder, sweats napalm, and reproduces by burning down the Outback.

    But I like your answer better. Every time the Gympie-Gympie tree is mentioned, relief washes over me that its natural habitat is on the other side of the planet.

    Nothing personal. It's just business.

    Fun fact: in the language of the people who named the Gympie Gympie tree, it's a swear word. The actual English translation would be something like "The F*** THAT HURTS tree".
