Yet he destroyed nothing. Except maybe the door a little. Still, an unqualified failure.
2002-02-08 03:31:04 PM  
I thought I had as big of a laugh when the SHOW BOMBER had his 15 minutes of fame.... LOL
2002-02-08 03:31:45 PM  
He should be destroyed. In Public. With TV coverage. As an example to other nut jobs who are thinking of kooking out on a plane.
2002-02-08 03:32:54 PM  
Start with yourself.
2002-02-08 03:33:34 PM  
Better yet... we strap that nutjob to the wing of the airplane on the next flight out of Argentina.
2002-02-08 03:35:49 PM  
At least he has goals.

erm... okay, nice white jacket for him.
2002-02-08 03:38:49 PM  
He was probably just upset when they told him he couldn't use the first class toilet.
Maybe it was showing Falling Down as the inflight movie.

"more lethal weapons", yeah like a rocket launcher. Or a Richard Simmons video.

That guy should thank the co-pilot for using the *blunt* end of the axe. Me, I'd have been tempted by the sweet, sweet sharp end...but then, they keep me away from sharp objects here. Sporks for all!

The partial pressure of oxygen gets lowered in flight to the point were some people just go bonkers. After enough flights long term brain damage starts to become very apparent.

Of course none of that applies if you happen to be a Sherpa.
2002-02-08 03:39:45 PM  
duh. Doesn't he know that the only way to take out everything is to follow one of the recipes for disaster the newspapers print every 3 days. Taking out a plane just isn't going to do it anymore.

I KNEW the pilot should have used the sharp edge!!!

Once again, we need a bouncer in front of the cockpit door and a velvet rope thingy.
2002-02-08 03:43:37 PM  
The real question is who is this this guy?

2002-02-08 03:44:09 PM  
...and what is he doing?
2002-02-08 03:45:41 PM  

2002-02-08 03:47:14 PM  
Giving himself his monthly breast self-exam?
2002-02-08 03:51:46 PM  
He's saying, "My boobies used to be here before the sex change."
2002-02-08 03:54:44 PM  
nah realy, i thought he wanted to tell the pilots they were doing a good job

whats a SHOW BOMB? a realy bad play or something
2002-02-08 03:58:12 PM  
"I like pointy B-cups, personally."
2002-02-08 04:00:19 PM  
Or, he is saying "This is where the milk comes from for the baby!"

GIS for "Destroy Everything".

Sometimes I wonder about that Google.

shoe Bomber, show bomber, and of course the Soy Bomber.

"He doesn't remember what happened," said Argentine Air Force spokesman Jorge Reta.

~ Yep. An axe blow to the head will do that to you. Every time.
2002-02-08 04:45:43 PM  
Man I wish I could sit next to one of those doctors on the flights who apparently shoot "terrorists" up w/ the good stuff as soon as someone does something. I'd help myself to a little ...
2002-02-08 04:58:19 PM  
Blunt side of the axe my ass. I'd have used the other side amd not worried about having to tie the guy up. Make any partners he mighthave had think twice about a follow-up.

Airline cabins run at around 7,000', not enough to cause any problems. Private pilots flying unpressurized planes aren't even required to use O2 unless they go above 12,000' for more than 30 minutes.

How 'bout just tossing these losers out of the plane? Keep in mind, it's not the falling that kills him, just gives them enough time to wet themselves before they pass out and make lunch for the mountain goats...

"Crewmembers hit him with the blunt end of an ax before a doctor aboard the flight sedated him, the affidavit states."

It seems that whenever somebody goes crazy on a plane there's always a doctor with either the drugs or the knowhow to "sedate" them.
2002-02-08 07:43:22 PM  
I hope that I am not going out on a limb by suggesting that these fruitcakes are v-e-r-y s-l-o-w l-e-a-r-n-e-r-s.
2002-02-08 08:22:47 PM  
I think the destruction was limited to a door panel and most of his remaining brain cells
2002-02-08 09:55:01 PM  
Soy Bomb! That dude rules.
2002-02-09 12:04:40 AM  
Oberon: No kidding. Is this some sort of common practice I'm unaware of? Is there a doctor on EVERY flight, and do they always carry sedatives? Are they supposed to be carrying around drugs?

Way I hear it, the stewardesses know where the happy juice is and it gets dragged out in certain situations.
