Just like a good Dem. You always have to tell everyone else what your boy is talking about, so now you presume to tell us what Mitt is talking about.
Oh, and you do realize that they only have to pressurize for certain altitudes, right? You're aware of that, right? It is only essential over 10,000 ft. You know that right? Because it appears that from your initial post you were unaware of that. So, do you want me to tell everyone what I think you meant by that first post? Do you?
But yes, keep up with your distraction that Mitt doesn't understand aircraft pressurization.
Actually I was unaware of that. So too, apparently, was Boeing.
"Research by the National Academy of Sciences has concluded that these cabin altitudes (5400 feet) are safe for healthy individuals, and because pressure changes in aircraft cabins are very gradual, most travelers do not suffer adverse effects.
However, if you suffer from an obstructive pulmonary disease, an upper respiratory or sinus infection, or certain cardiovascular conditions, there could be some risk at these cabin altitudes."
" In some individuals, particularly those with heart or lung disease, symptoms (of hypoxia) may begin as low as 5,000 feet (1,500 m), although most passengers can tolerate altitudes of 8,000 feet (2,400 m) without ill effect. At this altitude, there is about 25% less oxygen than there is at sea level."
Keep on making up those "facts", and then trying to make people look dumb for not knowing them.
Hey, did you know that the penguin is the fastest land mammal? Did you? You're aware of that, right? You know that right? Because it appears that from your initial post you were unaware of that.
But regardless, what are you suggesting? That planes should be designed so that windows open up to 10,000 feet, but then lock down once that magic altitude is reached? Sounds safe to me.
