    In An Airplane.

    Your seat cushion becomes a floaty-device upon chance the plane coasts safely into welcoming waves. Simply secure the seat-belt around your body, kick your legs up in an SOS position, and bob comfortably until help arrives.

    Sure...I Think

    Um...yes. I am. I know where the torch is, should there be a power failure. I know where the door is, and any other possibly exits, such as the living room window. But one hopes something won't become that desperate!
