There are many things I hate about airports; exorbitant prices for crappy bottled water and food, the seats which seem to be designed specifically to give you a sore back, the industrial carpeting featuring patterns which seem to have been designed specifically to exacerbate hangovers, etc. However, topping that list is the absence of free wifi. Some airline has the potential to make a killing by offering free wifi at the gate for all their flights. And yeah, I know there’s the pay for wifi option at most places but I don’t feel like spending $10 for half an hour’s worth of internet access. I’d rather just be grumpy about it, because that’s obviously more fun for everyone. I thought about not publishing this tonight, but then I remembered it might be useful to some of you on the West Coast. Here’s your Wednesday night TV:
