This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition, 2018 edition, 2019 edition, 2020 edition and 2021 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

FB tells me the @codfather is now old enough to drink.

So well old enough to bring water the next time he brings his betters on a hike and tries to kill them.

FB tells me he's been able to drink for years. He's an old man now.

I dunno. I did that mike up Signal Hill a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't that bad. I did find canopus27 's missing lung though.

For a more invigorating walk from St John's, try taking a taxi to Cape Spear and walking back. That's an all day endeavour, though.

The timing of his bedtime certainly suggests that!

Ugh. I just realized I'm not wearing a ring. I have no idea where it is. I can't even remember taking it off at any point.

Another $30 down the drain I guess...

If it's that unimportant, why bother?

Without it he can't entire the global collection of private clubs we engineers run. Well, mostly private.

Gravity and/or centrifugal force said they were more important.

The fact you have no idea where you lost it and that this happens repeatedly suggest it...

Popping back in after two months to read up on this thread, makes me feel like all is well.

I've now lost it three times.
1. I took it off on a bus because my finger was itchy. It fell. I spent 5 minutes on my hands and knees trying to find it.
2. The calf wanted to play with it. When I asked for it back, it had gone missing.
3. I have no idea. It's not something I really take off. Maybe for 10 seconds every week or two.

It's important.

Buy them 10 at a time? Then you'll likely never lose one again.
