i flew from dulles to sfo today. 6 hours, non-stop on virgin america. i saw this great country (the parts not covered by clouds), i saw blue skies, i saw clouds (which we all know i love), i saw lights.
but this is not all.
i had satellite television and wireless internet access. i could play games. i could chat with my fellow passengers. i could order snacks. well, let’s be honest, i did order snacks.
but besides this one little forray into snackdom and a little bit of chatting online, how did i spend this 6 hour flight, this flight full of aerial views and photography opportunities and really quite full of possible nap time? answer: trying to figure out how the fuck to solve the traveling salesman problem in a non-absurd amount of time.
maybe i should have titled this post “i suck at computer science” – but i think either title is true.
