Flying high part 27

How come if you book an airline ticket, literally, at the last minute, on something like it is so cheap. But if you physically book at the actual last minute when standing at the airport, then it is so expensive.

Airline ticket prices make no sense ... WTF ?!?

But so few things make sense in this day and age. I mean, what is a "definite possibility" exactly ... WTF !?! Talk about a contradiction in terms! Sorry, I need some sleep - I am making about as much sense as the world around us.

And speaking of high flyers, what's with hedge fund managers ... WTF ?!? When a hedge fund manager makes a billion dollars it means someone has lost a billion dollars - it is a zero sum game in my view. If I make a million widgets and sell them for a thousand bucks each then I have made a billion dollars. But when a hedge fund manager gets a billion dollars they have taken it, not made it. But I could be wrong.
