    Which is funny since he was actually using matches--the only thing you are still allowed to carry on board... :meh:
  4. Yeah, how dumb is that? :scowl:

    You can't carry a lighter, but you can carry matches.

    If you can't smoke on planes, why do they let you carry anything that can produce an open flame?

    I will never understand this. :rollno:

    Why not just strip everyone... I’d fly naked... I mean you should put like some cover on ugly people... but other then that yea... nothing on board...

    The funny thing is, every freaking seat has WIRES ON THEM yeah... you can make a nice fire using them... and knife... seats are metal for Christ sake... last time i was on a plane I looked at them... 2 screws and i have a knife from the stuff seat was made off... and yes i did find something on the plane to use to unscrew them...
    12 hour flight with NOTHING to do... you get bored:) and start to think of things... like you know... my freaking CD is pretty damn sharp when it breaks… yeah I had a CD break on me… it was sharp…

    But I am all for hot chicks naked on planes… hell yeah!

  6. Why don;t they just hire security from freaking vegas? You can't even count cards with out getting kicked out! If they can do it in 40+ casino's in vegas, they could get good security for the airports. The airliners can't pay for it and homeland security obviously does not want to either. It's a bummer... instead you got minimum wage security doing the best they can and all it does is slow down the process of getting on a plane.

    I'm all for naked chicks on planes too! :D
  7. The reason you can still carry item that produce an open flame is so that smokers can still get their nicotine fixes without having to wait for their checked bags. How else are they supposed to smoke during a 3 hour layover??

    That... plus how will i be able to smoke weed in the bathroom? The only way to fly...

    Also Russian airlines still allow smoking:) last time i was on one anyway...

    I think i ma make some money and start selling fire in airport... 20$ per use... i used to be a smoker... i'd so pay it...

    Semtex can be ignited with batteries, heck, you could set something of by hitting a stone against a piece of metal.

    Remembers me of the time at the airport when they took away my plastic fork, it had been lost for 3 weeks, I find it and lose it again...too sad.

    What if the captain plays "Freebird" over the intercom system. What flaming implement will you hold aloft? You'll have to light the in-flight magazine on fire and wrap it around the meal utensils.

    You have to take into consideration ALL the possible consequences.

    Anything could happen on Southwest, that's for sure.

    Fedex will be making more money now...

    The funny thing is that the shoe bomber would've failed regardless of passenger intervention. C4 is far too stable to be set off in the manner in which he attempted.
  13. Most airlines don't use metal utensils anymore, at the risk of them being used as weapons. Most airlines have gone to plastic. ;)

    Not Southwest, they just hum a bag of pretzels at you.
    No Sporks required.
  15. The captain, the first mate and the second mate are adrift in a lifeboat after a shipwreck.

    They have food and water for days, three cigarettes, but no matches.

    Q: How do they get to have a smoke?
    A: The second mate throws his cigarette overboard and makes the boat a cigarette lighter. :rollno:

    Friday, Friday! :hyper:
