Can we make the sub forum "Strokes, Heart Attacks and Seizures"

Granted . Although as a further improvement to include most remaining gentlemen I may propose :

" Strokes . Heart attacks . Seizures . Erectile dysfunction " .  to cover all major desasters .

Don't forget Deep Vein Thrombosis / Pulmonary Embolism.

Hugh Hoy and I are both full-patch members of the Bangkok Chapter of the DVT/PE Survivor's League: There are no meetings, there is no newsletter, there are no T-shirts, and we've already paid our dues.

I think we have a third member around here somewhere, but I don't recall for certain.

And I'll tell you: this is NOT a club you want to prospect for.  To be a hangaround, you have to fly a lot of long hops.  To prospect, you have to sustain a DVT that throws a PE.  To get your top rocker, you have to live through the prospect test.  Most prospects don't.  (Hugh and I were LUCKY.)

That's probably what got an old friend years ago at age 38. He flew in from Saudi, said I'll see you in the morning, and didn't make it through the night.  :(

With my average of 100,000 km a month I am unfortunately definitely a prospect for this group. I will blame and sue Lufthansa for their cramped seats :p I fly them on 70% of my flights lately. And even though I am a senator they rarely upgrade.They are just as stinchy as Dutch run KLM. They do have a nice selection of lounges though at FRA. And I have my first voucher to enjoy the HON circle First class lounge :)
