but I'd probably contact my girlfriend and family somehow with one last email, then check news even though Sky News is always on with no fucking sound in the background, and then pitchfork/this/nme/youtube

'As a prank, a captain riding in the jump seat engaged the gust lock in flight. The command pilot, not knowing the gust lock had been engaged, rolled the elevator trim tab with no response. When the jump seat captain disengaged the gust lock, the aircraft went into into a steep dive, executed part of an outside roll and become inverted. Neither the command nor jump seat captain had seat belts on and they accidentally feathered No. 1, 2 and 4 engines when they hit the controls with their heads. No one realized it at the time but the feathering reduced power and allowed the co-pilot, who was strapped in, to pull out of the dive 350 feet from the ground.'
it's under 'strange and unusual accidents'

Martin 202 Williamport, Pensylvania Crashed onto a mountain after a malfunctioning compass indicated an erroneous heading. Only one of the 25 passengers survived, found up in a tree, still buckled in his seat. This was his second plane crash.
thank you for your email. It was so lovely to hear from you! Are you still at university? It's been such a long time since we spoke.
Unfortunately I cannot be in your band. Since your Uncle David died, my health hasn't been great - I used to play the piano quite well (as you may remember) but the tablets i take make my hands shaky... it's a shame, i used to really enjoy it.
Anyway, I hope your project goes well. If you're near Bristol it would be really lovely to see you - it's been a long time.

I think I just saw a clown on the wing
1st half an hour of that is pretty good
But that was actually a reference to a classic Johnny Bravo episode which I don't have the time to youtube to.
Meths if I die in a horrid plane crash you can have my collection of rare hen's teeth.
