Not sure if serious.

Now you've got me Googling photorealism again.

Why not a render of Bender on Saturn in Blender?

I hear this same thing every time there's a bit of snow in London. "Planes land in snowy places every day. Why can't we buy some more snow plows?"

I wonder when someone in the UK will figure out that it isn't the snow on the ground that's the problem. It's the snow in the air!!!

If visibility is reduced you have to increase the minimum separation to keep planes safe. The dense traffic over the south of England means that it takes too long to land this large number of planes, and so some flights have to be canceled.

Hm, similar thing in Russia, when it gets cold enough that lubricants freeze in the car engines and the plane tugs won't start (-50*C and below).
But even then people can just get out and push the plane into position, since the jet engines would still run fine.
Cold is so much easier to handle than heat...

When buying a plane in Siberia, perhaps thrust reversers and nose wheel steering are worthwhile amenities.

Pushback is cheaper than powerback, whether these are passengers employed for pushing the plane or a tug.

In the last few months I've watched tons of volcano documentaries. Last night had proper realistic dream with super volcano eruption. TBH I wasn't even that scared dying in red hot liquid rock rain.

Toothpaste was missing this morning. While I do not wonder so much what nefarious powers might have gotten hold of it, I am worried what dark corners it might have been smeared into
