‘Final Destination’ star Devon Sawa boards flight on the film’s anniversary. Seriously.

TwitterFacebook

19 years ago, Devon Sawa avoided an ill-fated flight in the now-cult film Final Destination.

Almost two decades to the date, the actor tweeted on Sunday that he’d just boarded a plane with the flight number 317. On March 17. 3/17. Oh no. 

That’s right folks. The actor at the centre of Final Destination, a film released on March 16, 2000 and whose entire premise of cheating death hinges on a premonition about…

Amy Klobuchar apparently ate salad with a comb and then made her staff clean it

TwitterFacebook

The New York Times published a story Friday detailing the harsh, occasionally demeaning manner in which 2020 presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar has treated her staff. There are a lot of disturbing details in the report, including accounts of Klobuchar throwing items “in the direction of aides” and making employees wash her dishes, which is probably unethical and definitely shitty.

The weirdest story, though, is about a comb. In 2008, an aide allegedly forgot to bring a fork for Klobuchar’s…

A pilot in Perth, Australia flew his plane to spell out the words “I’m bored,” as per a FlightAware map tracking the journey. Of course, he also drew two dicks in the sky.

Flying 1,300 mph on airplanes would be great. But future aviation has other plans.

TwitterFacebook

In the year 2044, our cities might be energized by fusion power plants, our sleek cars may all run on electricity, and our doctors might regularly employ gene-editing to cure blindness

But our airplanes will probably still fly at the same speeds they did half a century ago: between 550 and 600 mph. 

Supersonic flight — which is to say speeds that exceed the speed of sound (768 mph) and can dramatically slash flight times — died out for civilians in 2003 with the retirement of the…
