The best flight I've ever been on in my life was from London to to Berlin during a major storm. I was bumped to first class and I was the only person there. I got a drink before takeoff, a three course meal with decent wine and Champagne and chocolates after. I had to pick up my glass a few time because we were bouncing all over the place.

I remember when we used to get peanuts. Then we got goldfish crackers. Now, there's nothing. A diabetic could die on one of those flights.

I was talking with a friend tonight about death. He feels that something is going to happen to someone. Someone is going to be injured or become ill? No specifics in the first conversation, but my first thought was his his mother. He told me that he'd spoken with his mother, altzheimer's, and he thought it might be her.

Sounds likely, but it's a total downer waiting to see if that happens.
Yes, I've had that feeling about people. I was sitting in a meeting once and my mind was wandering. I looked across the table at my boss, and something about him struck me. I thought, 'something is wrong with him' and then I immediately tried to erase that thought because I'm a little nuts and will sometimes imagine my mind can make the bad thing I thought happen lol.

Two weeks later I walk into the office and everyone's standing around in shock and crying. Mike dropped dead of a heart attack the night before. I was sad but not surprised.

I do think after reading Malcolm Gladwell's book Blink that it was less a premonition and more of some sort of information processing in my unconscious mind. Like his color was off or something. I can remember my mother saying so-and-so must have cancer or some other terminal issue because they had a "death mask" and I must have learned to pick that up.

Great book! I agree with your assessment. Intuition may be more about paying attention and being in tune with surroundings. Wondering if the technical age will dull these senses as we get less in touch with nature?

Before technology it was religion.
Heaven forbid you knew things before they happened, you could get stoned or burnt at the stake.

i haven't read the book, but i agree. it reminds me of when we were little and mother would say, "settle down before someone gets hurt." someone usually got hurt.
