AWebs,

Let it be known that I'm not really one for writing letters. I'm not much of a writer at all really, but I've been on a plane for a bit and I know it can be quite boring with nothing to do. My advice to you, aside from purchasing reading material and drawing on scraps of paper, would be to put this letter away, close your eyes, and do what many people do: sleep. Actually, fuck all of these substandard alternatives. Reading? Drawing? Forget it all. NOTHING COMPARES TO SLEEP. There's never anything to do on a plane that could ever hope to be better than enjoyable, time consuming, unconsciousness, but you're already aware that most mid-air activities suck, because you're reading this letter.

It's not always easy though - you've got to be ready. Being well rested is a common mistake most air travelers make. You might not be tired, but there are workarounds. Take a look at the person sitting next to you. Honestly, how fucking uninteresting do they look? Look at their comfortable travel attire. They put hours into picking out those clothes. This person is probably the most boring person ever to be launched into the sky by a commercial jet. You want to sleep? You want that sweet, sweet black-out pathway to slumberland? You know what you need to do: Start a conversation.

Ask them about their job. Ask about their family. Find out what they like to do in their spare time. If you're not tired after hearing about their motherfucking stamp collection, dog, cat, ferret, or moped - you're completely hopeless. You may have to read this letter a second time.

Remember: Sleep is important on a plane and if you were smart, you'd already have shaved ten minutes off of this trip. It is a well known fact that sleep is the closest thing we have to time travel. You shut your eyes, fall asleep, and when you wake up, you've skipped ahead into the future. It's fantastic, so get to it. If you start now, after 12 hours of sleep you will have instantly warped from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean to the heart of the Holy Land.

If you're Marty McFly, then sleep is your flux capacitor.

Take care and have a great time.
