Google-fu fail. In the late 60 or early 70s, as a kid in Detroit, I remember a Saturday morning cartoon (possibly just a short within a cartoon variety show) featuring a dragonfly, a horsefly, and, I think, a fruit fly. They lived in a matchbox. I remember it being my "favorite show" at some point. Keep in mind it very well may have been a one-off that the years have converted into a series in my mind. [more inside]
I just rewatched Cronenberg's The Fly. I saw it for the first time when I was a teenager, sometime in the early nineties. There are scenes in the movie that are etched into my memory, which I can vividly remember to this day. Except, having just rewatched the movie, those scenes aren't there. [more inside]

A very large media company is interested in talking to my small, three-person start-up. They're in LA, we're in NYC. How do we gently ask them to fly us out for a meeting? Or should we pay our own way? Not to be picky, but: as interesting as theoretical answers might be, I'm really looking for advice from someone who's been in a similar situation, and how they handled it. Thanks!

Any of you guys have experience with RTW (round the world) air travel tickets? Any particular ones to recommend? I have been looking into STA off and on, and several other options have been uncovered. But it seems all the data I can find is depressingly out of date. I tried futzing around on this webboard, but, not knowing much at all about airports, pro-level flying, and the like, I was incredibly intimidated to the point of "not knowing where to start."

What do you do if you see someone with their fly unzipped in public?

XYZPDQ (examine your zipper pretty darn quick)? Something else?
