i never really understood what was so undesirable about the dreaded "middle seat"

i mean, no, it wouldnt be my FIRST choice
but it's not as bad as people make it out to be.

look at it this way:
if you're sitting in the middle,
you only have to inconvenience ONE person if you need to get out of your seat,
whereas the person at the window is pretty much just stuck there for the duration.

you also are only ONE seat away from a window view,
which is better than the guy on the aisle who, being where he's at, will never get to know what Chicago looks like from 30,000 ft.

so, really, how can this equidistance be so bad?
you gotta look at it from a different perspective, people.

interesting and informing thoughts on seating.
nonetheless, i will always try to get an aisle seat.

yes, but the chances of getting stuck between two stinky people are great when you get a middle seat. (says the pessimist)
