I now hope they ban Gh@y flight "attendants" for plane hijackings.

The folks of NYC can thank their dimbulb mayor for doubling the amount of paper and styrofoam that winds up in NJ's landfills because of this.
Not to mention all the business they'll lose from Mississippians who will just stay home.

I remember buying a big gulp in a 7/11 in phily in the late 90's , jesus, it was like a 3 gallon bucket with a straw and i found it tough going.

About a week later in a Cinema/Theatre in NYC whilst watching Armageddon i think, i was introduced to free refills :-) between pi551ng and getting the refill, i didnt see much of the film which i didnt mind as them americans are crazy in the cinema, they "whoop" and "holler" all the bucking time and you cant enjoy the film!!
