When: Friday, 7 December, about 3:15 p.m.
Who: Random passengers and me
Why: Air travel is a popular way to travel between cities.
What: A Million Dollar Idea
This idea is definitely a time saver. See in the scene above how everyone of the 100 or so passengers on my flight from Seattle to The Bad Place are squashed together all trying to see their baggage when it come round on the carousel?
Better idea: A six foot rule. No one stands closer than six feet from the carousel. If everyone stands back from the luggage, everyone would be able to see the luggage, even those passengers not in the front row of the crowd.
The way it is done now, only about 30 people can see, rather than 100. In my new world order, when someone sees their bag, or one they think might be, they move forward to the carousel and claim it. There's no need to be right on top of the thing and block everyone else's view if you don't need to be.
P.S. Personal to the fellow at Amoeba Records in Hollywood on Friday night who came up to tell me how much he enjoys the blog. I really appreciated that. He may have just been havin' a laugh, but I decided to take the compliment at face value instead.
