Flight Simulator competition results

Our competition to give away five copies of Microsoft's "Flight Simulator 2000 Professional Edition" is now over! For the last week people have been e-mailing us to complete the sentence "Flying a jumbo jet is fun, because...", with somewhat mixed results. Our team of trained monkeys spent all this morning sifting through the entries to weed out the Americans who had entered the competition (what was the first rule?), and then we selected the five best entries, which you can now find on the competition page for your entertainment and edification.
