Weird airlines fees fliers are willing to pay

Mar 26, 2014 Full story: KMIZ 58

We live in an era of airline fees. Where once ticket prices included checked baggage, in-flight meals and seat selection, increasingly, those items are add-ons geared toward generating extra income for carriers.

Oh, you somehow "forgot" to explain why "carbohydrate challenged" doesn't work as a figure of speech.

(Because it does, thus the "oversight.")

Yes but look at what they were. Not one was your definition or your use. Mostly roller-coasters.

It doesn't because fat people aren't any more challenged by them. I think the phrase your looking for is calorically challenged.

Not a very good try at a dodge.

Obviously, "carbohydrate challenged" would refer to those who have an unnatural attachment to carbohydrates. They are challenged by them, possibly leading to blood sugar issues. Maybe weight gain, not necessarily.

It's not meant to express "gravity challenged."

The point, as you well understood, was that "carbohydrate" is a noun, and it works fine as part of that (imaginary) phrase. Just as "gravity," also a noun, works just fine in, "gravity challenged."

Remember? You said it can't work due to the part of speech. See, what I did there was provide a "counter example."

Again, I did it. A search for

"gravity challenged"

gives all sorts of usages.(Same for watching about any stand up comedy routine in the past decade that touched on weight as a topic.)

I don't know what search your talking, I mean, lying about.

Nope... For starters no one has an " unnatural attachment" and it is still grammatically incorrect. Apparently you failed 5th grade language arts....... And the cycle repeats.

I didn't use whatever search terms you used.

I went to the search engine I used and input "gravity challenged" and got lots of usages.

Hey troll, it is a counter example which still can work regardless of whether you are aware of sugar addiction or not.

Carbohydrate challenged. Math challenged. Gravity challenged.

All nouns. They're fine. Your mind is not.

You also tried to say Gravity challenged " Sounds better"... It doesn't, sounds incorrect because it is... Sounds..........Ignorant.

Your problems seem to be mounting. I cannot discern the intent of this latest post from you.

Both figures of speech are in use, are searchable, and "math challenged" is an example everyone has also heard of utilizing a noun. There's no real problem here, just two specious ones you made up.

You're wrong.... You're making up your own rules of grammer as do others... The correct way of saying it is Mathematically Challenged it sounds better because it is correct.
The fact you cannot discern the last post is your handicap not mine..

"Math challenged" is fine. You hear it all the time. "Carbohydrate challenged" is fine. In that case an adverb would not work, obviously.

Lots of instance of "gravity challenged" can easily be found.

You have a problem. That's fine. Say it the way you want to. I don't object to that.

You also hear people say,, Me and you.......... Would you like some searches of math challenged and mathematically challenged??? You will notice many people who have mathematically challenged kids say they are Math challenged... Apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it?
Math challenged what????

Okay, you want to be obtuse. Fine with me.

And you can't use a search engine or understand standard written English from vernacular, not give consideration to "carbohydrate challenged," which clearly indicates some sort of addictive relationship with sugars. A noun is fine.

You weren't making a point, let alone a salient one.
