    ...so Continental Airlines sent me a nice form letter today rejecting the fact that they poisoned me on a flight.

    I understand they have to cover their own asses, but it would be nice for a big company to admit they made a mistake now and then.

    A choice quote: "We are sorry that you believe your condition was associate with the meal provided to you on this flight"

    "you believe" - they use it like 5 times in the letter. Such asses.

    try to get a free flight out of them

    While a bit better than suing a fast food restaurant for coupons to said restaurant after a food poisoning. I wouldn't want anything to do with a place that poisoned me.

    Well do you have any proof proto?

    it was the only thing I ate since the night before (like 12 hours since the previous meal)

    I was sick ~4 hours after eating (which is the typical time according to nurses I know)

    It's possible it was from the night before, but not as likely.


    I wasn't looking to get anything out of them. Just a simple "we fucked up, we'll be more careful in the future" would have been fine.

    What was the poisoned meal in question?

    beef lasagna.

    it's funny because I picked that over the chicken meal cause I thought it would be safer.

    Silly Proto, it's common sense: chickens have wings, beef cattle do not. Which one do you think you should be eating in mid-air?

    Of course. All the signs point to it, but you can never really prove it unless someone else got sick.

    That's the beauty of it, they can just say "72 hour incubation period! Could be a virus!" and then they can continue to get away with shoddy meals.

    Well maybe you were the only one to get sick. Lots of people get sick after plane rides, doesn't have to be the food.

    Is there a difference between the following:

    Is there a hospital in your town?
    Are there any hospitals in your town?

    Nobody else did get sick. Doesn't mean much though, the meals are individually wrapped. Mine could have sat out before getting sent to the airline.


    I don't get motion sickness and the doctors at the hospital I went to in Jersey confirmed it was food poisoning of some type.

    the first is a yes or no question, the second, while also a yes or no question, seems to invite a response containing a quantity.

    I think if you were to really read into it the second might imply the speaker thinks the town is somewhat bigger than the speaker of the first question does

    Second one seems to imply the asker is also inquiring about the number "yes, there are two hospitals", whereas the first one is looking for an answer like "yes, there is/are".

    Well it makes corporate sense not to apologize, because an apology is an admission of guilt which they could be sued over.

    I watched the first Transformers movie last night with some friends.

    After rewatching it, it occurred to me that Shia Lebouf was actually one of the only good parts of that movie.

    I still don't like him because he's creepy and also a console elitist, but hating him for Transformers is pretty silly.

    I didn't hate him for those comments specifically, but it sure didn't improve his standing in my eyes.


    I mean, what the hell is that? Avoiding people because of their choice in video games?


    The only time that's ever reasonable is if you met someone who played one of those weird unendorsed violent porn/hentai games. And not as a joke.
