I left my iPod in the seat pocket!

I left my iPod in the seat pocket on a flight from SFO to IAD (I changed planes and went on to ROC) yesterday. I've made some attempts to locate it, but with the holiday travel and the huge backup due to Denver being closed, I'm having little success. I'm jumping through the hoops with the airport and airline, but having a tough time due to the heavy traveler volume. Has anyone else lost an item by leaving it in the seat pocket and got it returned? Any tips?

How can I develop a better sense of direction?

I have no internal compass and no inherent sense of direction. When I think north, south, east, west, I have to picture a map of the whole U.S. in order to remember where they all are in relation to each other. At work, statements such as "meet in the south parking lot" bring up no immediate mental image of where that might be. Is there anything I can do to not be lost all the time? [more inside]

Series suggestions: Felicity, LOST, Alias...?

Recently I've become a devoted fan of J.J. Abrams' works. Felicity, Lost and Alias used to fill in my evenings perfectly. But now - during the summer break - I find myself watching something I do not even want to watch. Could you recommend some similar directors or series which are made with the same level of professionalism one can find in the series mentioned above?

So sorry you lost your ticket, not sorry we are now sticking it to you!

I watch Airline on A & E a lot and a common problem is that people loose their ticket. The result is that if they want to fly they MUST BUY a new one. This seems downright completely and utterly wrong to me. Please explain why this policy has lasted through all of the trouble I am sure its caused. [more inside]

LOST Screen Cap

LOSTfilter: I found a great link last week but (argh) didn't bookmark it. It's several animated gifs/screen caps from the show LOST on ABC. All of the pics show weird flying black things. One set on the beach, and one from the jungle that actually flys up and stops in front of the camera. Am I crazy, or has anyone else seen these?

I don't watch Lost, but I was wondering: Has anything comparable ever actually happened? Has there ever been a historical instance where several people were stranded in the wilderness for a long and indeterminate period of time and had to make do? The more recent the better, but I'm interested in anything (I've already heard the story of Andrew Selkirk, the "real life" Robinson Crusoe).

Why do I get lost?

I am looking for answers about why some people, like myself, have little to no sense of direction. I have always had this problem and know others in the same situation. Conversely, there are those you seem to naturally know how to get around where ever they are. Is there a scientific reason for this. I call it being directionally challenged. Causes great angst in unfamiliar places. For those of you in the same boat what suggestions do you have for staying grounded, etc.
