You probably know what the airplane experience is. Confined to a tiny space smaller than a coffin with plenty of air and virtually no movement unless you use social credits to ask a seatmate to let you stand up and move for a few minutes.
The first form of torture, waterboarding is usually done to you and you have no control. The second is either because you are too poor (our version of a social outcast) or the airline is mismanaged and overbooked. Both states are only partially in your control. Some things like a fat or smelly seatmate or bad hair in front of you are out of your control.
The whole issue is clouded when we remember that many people are into sado-masochism. Control is supposedly absent, but a code word to stop the sado part does exist.
Put the three together and you have my confused reaction to the airline scenario which I experienced recently, inadvertently, for the second time in five years. I hate it. Fours of waterboarding might be worse... but only a little bit.
