Short and sweet:
Mangesh and I are about to hop on a plane to Birmingham. The first two readers to guess either of our seat numbers win free mental_floss t-shirts!
(And if you have any pull at Continental, we'd love an upgrade.)
It was dicey there for a while, but we arrived in one piece late last night. I've never aborted takeoff while speeding down the runway before. That was fun. But on to the winners. Mangesh and I were seated in the very last two seats, which on the not-very-popular Newark-to-Birmingham flight are 19b and 19c. The first to guess 19b was Jill; Steve knew 19c was a lucky number/letter combination. Congratulations! I'll be in touch about your t-shirts.
