Offshore blogging again

I had to zip offshore yesterday at the last minute,
changing my tranquil sunday at home to a mad dash
to the dock, then a four hour crew boat ride to the rig.
Not too bad of a ride, I only reached the nasty salivating
feeling before we arrived at the rig, it sucks when the
high point of the evening is not puking.

I stayed out on the back deck most of the time since I
won't get sick if I can see the horizon and not smell that
boat smell of lysol/oldpuke/diesel fuel that inhabits the
inside of the boat. It was a pretty clear night, and the only
lights were the lights of rigs and production platform as
we cruised past, so I had a clear view of the big dipper and
the north star and I willed those two pointer stars to move
faster around and speed up time.

Apparently there is a meteor shower for this part of the
month, because I saw one fall, but it didn't look real, more
like a reflection off of metal into my eyes. The next meteorite
was more emphatic, maybe even a fireball, because it powered
brightly down from nearly zenith down to the horizon. the
show was pretty much over then though, a big cloud covered
the western sky and I ducked into the darkened miasma inside
the cabin.

Since I was the only passenger I could lay down across a row of
seats, which was lucky because just then my dramamine kicked
in, around two hours late. drugs....
then what felt like a moment later we arrived.
A deckhand said "we're here, getup" and shined a light in my
face. I staggered back out onto the deck and looked up at the
rig, which looks like a high island bathed in yellow sodium lights

[sort of like this, but higher and in the dark, picture borrowed

A crane lowered a personnel basket, and I hopped on.


I had to hug on those ropes like a newby, since I hadn't
ridden a personnel basket in about two years. (normally
I travel by helicoptor) Since I was by myself, there was
no one else to counterbalance my weight, and I felt like
any second the whole thing would flip over and I'd fall 80'
to the gulf.

Finally they lowered me to the deck, I stepped off the basket
and I was good as new. Home again. bleh.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
