Forget about Da Vinci. The real conspiracy is at airports. Why do they create public spaces that are electrical outlet-free? Do they conspire? Is there a contest to see who can offer the fewest? Do evil airport managers with evil laughs meet annually to show off images of vast swaths of public airport space that are electrical-outlet free?
I'm sitting here at Pearson and no lie I'm staring at a pillar where there used to be an electrical outlet and it's covered over with a solid plate.
Why, oh, why??!! What is that sound I hear in the background?
And that's the way the stuck-at-Pearson Ball bounces.
PS -- they do offer free wifi now, though.
