    The first time I used it I kind of wasted the dose because I burst out laughing. It's exactly like taking a bong hit. You have to inhale deeply and then hold it. But the insulin is in powder form so your natural reaction is to want to cough. So the second time I tried it I was making all those same silly sounds you make when trying to hold in a large bong hit.

    I think it's partly weight loss, but mostly tumor reduction. This, from a medical layman....

    I do know we fly at a much lower alititude (than a jet would normally fly), which means lower efficiency and lower speed for the aircraft. Pretty sure it has more to do with the short distance flown rather than aircraft capability.

    More time is spent boarding, sitting, taxiing, deplaning than actual flying though, I can tell you that.

    Last post I sent just before getting up to board the plane. Plane was airborne exactly twenty minutes. Seven minutes ascending, four minutes level flight, nine minutes descent/approach/landing.

    I was just doing math. Someone said about 70 miles and 35 minutes in the air. 2 miles a minute average is 120 mph not 100. But then maybe I didn't have the exact numbers to work with.

    Hawaiian Airlines awards 75 miles for the flight. Using that distance and the airborne time of 20 minutes, works out to 225 MPH average speed.
