I fly fairly regularly and in the boarding area, I like to play this game called "Please Don't Let Me Sit Next to That Person." I can be a bit cranky and I like to think that I've figured out a set of indicators for predicting who will be the most annoying person on my flight. Unfortunately, about half the time, the offender is someone I didn't even notice. Non-Stop, the latest box office topping thriller starring Liam Neeson combines the forced intimacy and the anonymity of commercial airline...


Before you say something, ask yourself, "Is this going to make things better?"
