Which hack is Mad Maxier?
A. This tortoise shell guitar found at an obscure ya-dong bar in Roi Et:
B. My old dirt-thrasher Tena (the urusai-est Honda Tena in the world)
This review of Wilson Silver Color Mist (apparently used as the chrome inhalant in the movie) made me bust a gut.
There are a few tonkatsu chefs in Japan that I’ve seen test the temperature of frying oil with the edge of their thumbs, but I’ve never seen anything like this….
This is the best series I’ve seen in a long, long time. It features writers and actors from the Wire, which is evident throughout the first season. For some reason, it made me think of a certain character from 24 as well, and that actor suddenly appeared in one of the later episodes!
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can see it for free.
I can’t figure which tribute I like more (although I have a soft spot for Animal):
As an anti-fraud measure, many airlines have adopted a policy of asking to see the credit card your tickets were purchased with at check in. This concerned me after buying tickets with my dad’s credit card for my family (wife and kids) to visit home later this year. We are flying Korean Air, so this information is pertinent only to them.
The Korean Air website clearly states that the credit card used to buy the tickets online needs to be shown at check in:
Reading online flying forums for confirmation only served to confuse the situation, as it appears that some airlines (even Korean Air in some situations) actually ask for the owner of the credit card to also be present at time of check in.
To clarify, we called Korean Air on both continents we would be flying from and they gave us the same reply: Although their website seems to say otherwise, the only time you need to show a credit card at check in is if both of the following two items are true:
In Thai, we were told “not to worry about it,” which is just about the most worrying thing you can be told in Thai when you want a straight answer, so I called KAL customer service in the states and was told the exact same thing. Since we bought the tickets from a 3rd party (discount travel site), it seems we will not be asked to produce the card at check in.
