In a study entitled “Effect of Aircraft-Cabin Altitude on Passenger Discomfort” in the New England Journal of Medicine, the authors write that people who “travel to terrestrial altitudes above 6,500 feet experience acute mountain sickness, a syndrome characterized by symptoms of headache, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, lassitude, and sleep disturbance.” The researchers call this “Acute Mountain Syndrome.” The ill effects are even more pronounced the older you are.

Sharing with my Luddite friend this great and interesting news.

“Jet lag” is merely misdiagnosed “Acute Mountain Syndrome”!

Wow, what a finding.

The article says planes are being reengineered to eliminate this.

Great!

To which, he responds:

Yeah, they will end jet lag because nobody will be able to afford to fly!

No, it’s the “invisible hand of the free market”. Improve or die. Serve your fellow man or starve. 
Look at commodes. At one time only the ULTRA ULTRA rich kings could have indoor plumbing. Now virtually everyone has it.

Same with cars. Clean water. Computers.

Only in Gooferment projects does the costs escalate and the results plummet.

When entrepreneurs risk their own money, progress happens. Because no one watches the store like the owner.

Economics 201.

Laugh!
