4. ENTRY PERIOD: The start and end dates/times of each Giveaway (the "Entry Period") will be posted on the applicable Giveaway site.

5. ENTRY: To enter a Giveaway, follow the instructions on the Giveaway site. Submission will result in one (1) entry. The number of times you can enter the Giveaway will be posted on the applicable Giveaway site. The use of any agencies or automated software to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person.

6. DRAWING: At the conclusion of the Entry Period, Sponsor will select the name(s) of the potential winner(s) in a random drawing of all eligible entries received during the Entry Period. The number of winners to be selected in a specific Giveaway will be posted on the applicable Giveaway site. The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Entry Period. Potential winners will be contacted via email and will be asked to provide their full name, age and mailing address within a specified time period. If a potential winner does not respond within the timeframe stated in the notification email, the Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place at random from all entries received during the Entry Period. Limit one (1) prize per household per Giveaway.

7. REQUIREMENTS OF THE POTENTIAL WINNERS:
Except where prohibited, the potential winners may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the "Affidavit/Release") within seven (7) days of being notified. If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, an alternate entrant will be selected in his/her place in a random drawing of all entries received. Acceptance of a prize constitutes consent to use winner's name and likeness for editorial, advertising and publicity purposes without additional compensation, except where prohibited by law. In the event the potential winner of any prize is a Canadian resident, he/she will be required to correctly answer a time-limited mathematical question to be administered by email/mail to receive the prize.

8. PRIZE(S): The prize(s) (including each prize's approximate retail value) available to be won in a specific Giveaway will be posted on the Giveaway site. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize with another prize of equal or greater value if the prize is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. The winners are responsible for any taxes and fees associated with receipt or use of a prize.

9. GENERAL CONDITIONS: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Giveaway is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but not limited to fraud, virus, or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Giveaway to address the impairment and then resume the Giveaway in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) award the prizes at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Giveaway or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Giveaway may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. In case of a dispute as to the owner of an entry, entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the authorized account holder of the screen name from which the entry is made. The authorized account holder is defined as the natural person who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.

Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Giveaway Entities' liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Giveaway, and in no event shall the Giveaway Entities be liable for attorney's fees. Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.

11. DISPUTES: Except where prohibited, entrant agrees that any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the Giveaway or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the Commonwealth of Virginia. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, entrant's rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of the Sponsors in connection with the Giveaway, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the Commonwealth of Virginia or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the Commonwealth of Virginia.

I am not a follower of modern TV shows but I was a passenger on many Pan Am flights in those "good old days" . I enjoyed the show with the Haiti experience and hope the show continues to air on network TV.

Is it true that if a Seagull is fed an Alka Seltzer, they will blow up? Can you test this myth without hurting any real birds?

Is it true that if you throw rice at a wedding, and a bird eats enough of it , they will blow up? Can you test this myth without harming any birds?

I would like to know if you can really become a "Human Volcano", by injesting a mento and drinking diet soda, like they portrayed on an episode of "Two and a Half Men"?

Growing up on a farm in very rural Northeast Texas my parents always stressed that you "never" drink milk when eating fish because it will make you " very sick.". Is this true? Or a myth?

Anne Sweeney flew for Pan Am from 1964 to 1975! I flew for Pan Am from 1979-1986, when United bought Pan Am' s Pacific Division. The general appearance of the uniforms were right on, except that collars outside the jacket were not worn until the mid 70's, with the uniform designed by Edith Head. Also, the blue uniforms from the 60's were more dusty blue; though the TV version of PA blue plays better on the big screen. We Pan Am stewardesses still keep in contact with one another: we spent round the world trips of 10-12 days together, bonding and developing lasting friendships. I LOVED the entire appearance of the new show!

As one of the first African-American PanAm stewardesses in 1963-1966, I was pleasantly surprised. with the new show. It hold a great deal of promise and shows a fantastic era. I now fly for American Airlines, once flying is the your blood, it's hard to stop.

I loved the show and insisted my husband watch it with me. He an ex-flight stewart and flight engineer and the show brought back fond memories for him. Hope the show continues to fly high.

I'm a former American Airline Stewardess, 1958-1959, loved the show! Yes those were 'classy' times. And passengers were classy also. If you were flying somewhere it was a special event, and you dressed for it. There is something to be said about the 'old days'.
