Why You Should Hire a Private Plane for a Wedding...

On Saturday I attended a wedding. It was the first wedding in our family after a series of funerals and everyone was looking forward to it. And it was nice- a bit of Spanish fiesta mixed with Hungarian folklore and meals.

However, after midnight, everyone wanted to get home. The police would not be interested in the fact that you are more likely to be run over by a car when walking drunk, than cause an accident whilst drink driving. Common practice is that one passenger from each car keeps away from alcohol to be able to drive the others home. But drowsy drivers can be just as dangerous as drunk drivers.Actually, it does not matter whether your reactions are slowed down by alcohol or fatigue.

However, people will always choose to drive tired due to the legal reasons. There is zero alcohol tolerance in Slovakia and if you exceed 1.0 (which is likely after a wedding where the home-distilled spirit is a must), you can end up in prison.

Perils of Flying

Getting home from the wedding was one thing, but some of the guests will soon have to get back to Spain, and judging by recent news there are further dangers lurking in the air. The same Saturday as the wedding, 307 people on board a flight from Seoul to San Francisco went through a terrifying experienced.

Two passengers were killed and 180 injured after the tail of the Boeing 777 ripped off. According to experts, the plane came down too low at too low a speed. Reportedly, the Korean pilot was still in training with only 43 hours of practice on this type of plane, which does not meet the international standard. However, it will take months of investigation for the authorities to confirm any guilt. But still, you are 200 times more likely to be killed in a car accident than in a plane crash.

Anyway, I'm not sure who is getting married next, I don't think the bride threw the bunch of flowers. But whoever it is I will suggest he hires a private plane to fly all the guests home.
