@Rotergirl: Prostate surgery? Do people have no sense of propriety anymore? Good grief.
You know, I don't even really care why they need the seats upright. I don't fly a plane so I don't understand all the whys and wherefores. I figure it's not just to make me uncomfortable or to inconvenience me, that there must be something sensible behind it, and I think this article explains pretty well what those reasons are. Not like it takes that long to get off the ground or to land. It’s just people acting like spoiled brats.
They just need to grow up and act like adults for a change.
