Mercifully I didn't have to brave the minefield on online ticket sites before my mom took mercy on me and booked a ticket that didn't involve 20 hours in layovers.
I get to spend a short while in a new country, Korea.
No excessive layovers
One-way tickets are fairly cheap
It's still a 28 hour ordeal
I'll almost certainly get pseudo-raped by the TSA
Lastly, a friendly welcome to my one and only follower Andy Frauenholtz who is in Las Vegas currently. Here's to hoping he strikes it rich.
