The Dumb Way We Board Airplanes Remains Impervious to Good Data
...
From a data-driven perspective, this is nothing short of maddening. There are many ways to board a plane, with “back-to-front”—the chosen boarding process of most U.S. carriers—the slowest. It is so ineffective that timed research shows that simple random boarding ends up being faster.
One possibility is that airlines have no incentive to improve the process. As long as it remains terrible, they can sell early boarding privileges. Southwest, for example, charges $40 to be among the first 15 to board.

If you don't already know why a helium balloon tethered to the floor of a minivan has the power to make your jaw drop, you're going to want to see this. Seriously – set aside five minutes of your time, have a seat and watch. You won't regret it.

git is a horrible tool. Someone may check-in a horrible code in git and git do not reject it.

I bet I can make a source control system that rejects all bad code in a few lines of shell script.
