Now that you've cleared that up, maybe you can explain to me what the deal with airline food is? And why don't they make the plane out of the black box?

why the food's so bad? in economy they just don't give a shit. but I've had some pretty decent food in biz class. I also read somewhere that our sense of taste is lessened during flight (don't remember why)

regarding black boxes, I suppose a plane made out of boxes wouldn't be very aerodynamic. like the time I tried to build an x-wing fighter out of Lego blocks. let's just say Luke wasn't going to be hitting any womp rats with that one

I'd like more thoughts on this, please.

Addendum to my previous post - if the mother is dead it's clearly not cheating.

This is assuming a heteronormative cisgendered couple.

I had an old baseball coach that used to liken something, I think it was tying, to kissing your sister. I'm still not sure what that means. Maybe he was referencing cheating. So if he was, kissing your sister would be cheating, but I'm not sure nailing your daughter would apply, so I'm going to go with no.

I wonder if the wife would be upset at the fact the husband cheated vs. engaged in incest. I know both, probably, but I'm curious whether he would be labeled a "cheater".

I have represented many clients who had sexual relations with their children. The wives were always more upset at the incest/rape than the cheating.

Heston blumenthal did a show on this.

Got a recommendation about always ordering special food, as its better than the regular food.

Interesting. I am thinking of a more consensual sexing though. No rape involved. Like a hot dad and a hot daughter with the hots for each other's sexy parts.

They still serve food on airplanes? Last time I flew business class, all I got were some warm nuts, which had a fancy feel but IMHO were not as good as some southwest honey roasted peanuts (god forbid you are on a southwest flight were they only have plain peanuts).

Actually, the last time I got real food on a plane was some sort of Delta commuter flight from ORD to JFK that gave you a bagel with multiple spread options. Also, the food I have had on SAS flights is fantastic.

Starfighters don't need to be aerodynamic...duh

Incest can't be consensual in most jurisdictions, and if the hot daughter is under 18 it's still statutory.

Incest can't be consensual between two adults? That's wack.

Depends on the jurisdiction but generally no.

Edit - or I should say, if both are adults and are siblings it is likely they will both be charged. If it's parent on child incest then usually it's just the parent that is charged.

Further edit - see for example



"§ 4302. Incest.
A person is guilty of incest, a felony of the second degree,
if that person knowingly marries or cohabits or has sexual
intercourse with an ancestor or descendant, a brother or sister
of the whole or half blood or an uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of
the whole blood. The relationships referred to in this section
include blood relationships without regard to legitimacy, and
relationship of parent and child by adoption."

It's very rare to have the child, even an adult child, charged with incest with a parent. At least 'round these parts.

So lame. Who do I write a letter to to get that changed? So, basically having sex with your 18 year old daughter can get you thrown in state prison?

Really? That's weird. In texas adult incest is a felony, but it's not rape.
