hk_brian, were you travelling to Moscow with Ryanair? You know they say its Moscow but actually they land you in the Soviet Union. Thats just how far away Ryanair can actually land you from your intended destination 😉
LP, are you serious? It’s light hearted humour? hk_brian was asked if he is travelling to the Soviet Union? Which ceased its existence in around 1991 (I think), hence his light joke, “am I travelling by time machine” I added about Ryanair, to suggest that they manage to get you so far from where you want to be by actually going back in time? ha ha ha. You know Ryanair? They tell you they are going to Manchester but land you in Liverpool, having paid the airport to change its name to “Manchester West”. My additional comment about the connecting flight was rhetorical humour as Czechoslovakia also ceased its existence in around 1992/93
I think the slight comedy value is lost when such a debrief is needed. Never mind.
