A bit off topic here but.....

Would Ants get attracted to Diet Coke if some is spilled in my little plane?

Standard Noise,

That's a bit ANT-agonistic!

Is there an antidote for this? Maybe some antiseptic?

Get the carpet out of there, Yankee, hose it down and let it dry. Diet coke should not cause as much of a problem as ordinary coke but you should definitely clean it up. Leaving it for a week is not a good idea.

Coke problem solved, now what about the rum?

How about using some Antifreeze?

You might need an antioxidant ... just some friendly advice from the Antipodes ...

You possibly could vomit in your plane, hence you wont go near it, hence you won't fly it, hence you'll stay away from thermals...and voila no ants in your Coke !! Simpleinnit ?? :ooh:

I'm eagerly anticipating the definitive answer to this question.

Most of us have willl have at some time seen the online aspartame horror story and its supposed connection with grand mal attacks. Anyone know if that's been authoratively debunked, or is there some truth to it?

Is your aircraft an Antonov?

1. Place ring of glowing embers around your aircaft. They would be replused by the anti aircraft fire.

2. Try leaving a miniature pack of playing cards and some chips in the cockpit, thus upping the ante.

3. Leave a small offering of butterfly larvae atop of a small stone column adjacent to your aircraft. Perhaps that will better cater-pillar to their needs.

....must....stop...now. Night shift over ... need sleeeep!
