What? No! My house!

Ladies and gentlemen...

I present to you a Darwin Award 2003 candidate.

Just another reason not to live near the airport.
2003-02-25 12:00:55 PM  
That's was Saddam's war advisor I think.
2003-02-25 12:01:04 PM  
God help me, but the first thing I did when I saw this headline was giggle.
2003-02-25 12:01:15 PM  
This is nothing unusual. I hear about chunks of frozen sh!t falling out of planes every day.
2003-02-25 12:02:48 PM  
It's raining men,
hallelujiah, it's raining men.

2003-02-25 12:02:50 PM  
Do you think he was dead before he fell out?
2003-02-25 12:03:38 PM  
Obviously this guy was boycotting France's airlines. Hey, "Air Freedom" kinda has a ring to it.
2003-02-25 12:03:49 PM  
No, but he certainly was after he landed.
2003-02-25 12:04:31 PM  
Man that sucks! Its bad enough you fall out of a plane, but you land in PARIS...ugh
2003-02-25 12:05:43 PM  
2003-02-25 12:05:53 PM  
MAN that would suck.
2003-02-25 12:06:47 PM  
Puckhead, I just laughed out loud while on the phone with a client.

You hilarious bastard, you.

This is what happens when you fall asleep at the wheel.
2003-02-25 12:07:59 PM  
Sure, they can supposedly stop people from hiding bombs on planes, but they can't stop them from hiding people on them?

Airport security surrenders. Completely.
2003-02-25 12:08:57 PM  
Good one, Puckhead...

Talk about feeling like you woke up on the wrong side of bed! Go downstairs to get your first cup o' joe and find some dead person that crashed thru the ceiling of your house...
2003-02-25 12:09:03 PM  
He was on his way to pick up $65 million too.

Hopefully some kind soul in the USA will help his descendents get their inheritance.
2003-02-25 12:09:14 PM  
I hate to say it, but he is better off than if he had landed in Paris. Since he was not raised as a surrender monkey, he would not have fit in.

Maybe he was thrown out by Nicholas Cage to warn the Feds as to the diabolical plans of the Frenchies on board.

BTW, he was most likely dead before the landing gear opened. The temperature changes in that compartment are incredible, and I think he forgot to bring his parka with him.
2003-02-25 12:11:47 PM  
Anyone that hides in the landing gear must be brave (a little crazy too). France is no place for a brave man.

How bad do you need to get out of your own country to stowaway in the landing gear of a jetliner??

Life must REALLY suck in some places...
2003-02-25 12:13:41 PM  
New SuperSaver fares!
2003-02-25 12:15:24 PM  
Didn't something like this happen less than a month ago?

And I believe it was France last time as well. I mean, who wants to go to France of all places?
2003-02-25 12:16:02 PM  
Economy class?

Did he have a note to U.S. Marshall Vince Larkin written on his shirt?
2003-02-25 12:19:16 PM  
Hey Charles, whatchu gonna' open up on the next person who says 'France surrenders'?

[image from too old to be available]

That's what I thought!
2003-02-25 12:19:20 PM  
I think GWB is behind this. If you don't join us in the war on Iraq, we will begin dropping people on your homes!
2003-02-25 12:22:29 PM  
Ecomomy, seating for one now available!
2003-02-25 12:22:49 PM  
Its not the fall that hurts, its the abrupt stop.
2003-02-25 12:25:50 PM  
This guy was dead long before they got to Paris. At 40,000 ft you have about 10 seconds before losing consciousness. Then your brain and lungs start leaking like a faucet.
2003-02-25 12:26:05 PM  
Actually it's Ross Perot's fault...
2003-02-25 12:26:14 PM  
Woo-hoo! More inane France bashing.

You know what I hate? That Blondie song where she French! I think Ashcroft should ban that song

/works self up into blind rage
2003-02-25 12:26:17 PM  
He probably froze to death. It gets pretty damn cold up there.
2003-02-25 12:26:59 PM  
It was Col. Mustard in the conservatory w/ a plane

2003-02-25 12:27:52 PM  
Anybody remember the Louis XIV scene from 'History of the World?' "PULL!!!"

Just a thought.

It's Bush's fault!

2003-02-25 12:28:38 PM  
Why don't they shoot the landing gear with a flame thrower before take-offs to get those parasites off?
2003-02-25 12:28:46 PM  
he must have realized the plane was going to France and decided death was better.

Are they sure it wasn't just the frogs trying out their new air to surface missles?

2003-02-25 12:37:53 PM  
"The corpse of the unidentified man was discovered at first light by the owner"

Did he not hear him hit the house? I'm thinking it would have made a loud crash/splat noise.
2003-02-25 12:38:28 PM  
"Hey, "Air Freedom" kinda has a ring to it."

I think you'll find that the CIA already has a stake in Continental Airlines.
2003-02-25 12:39:56 PM  
OK, now do you want an aisle, window, middle, or wheelwell seat?

I see. Will that be smoking, non-smoking, or freezing to death?

One final question - If I put you in an exit row, will you exit when the gear go down? Excellent. Here's your ticket and thank you for flying on Air France.

great - now that frickin' song is stuck in my head.

2003-02-25 12:53:21 PM  
Things must be pretty horrible in this guy's country if he's willing to risk freezing to death or falling thousands of feet to his death just to get out of there.
2003-02-25 12:59:49 PM  
The view from 40,000 feet is breathtaking....oh, and so is hitting headfirst into a Frenchman's house.
2003-02-25 01:01:20 PM  
So when can we start using bombs on Frenchie Frenchman instead of people? Will they surrender if they read this post?
2003-02-25 01:03:41 PM  
Wow - a whole 62 comments so far and nobody's blamed this on Clinton yet.

Conservative slackers.

Excellent "5th Element" reference. Very appropriate time for a LUC BESSON reference.

\cleaners don't surrender

Badger: Exactly what I thought. I'd just got through watching some thing about him on the History channel before reading this.
2003-02-25 01:21:07 PM  
He soooo almost made it.
2003-02-25 01:21:44 PM  
Maybe he didnt hear/see the man but smelled's France.....nevermind.
2003-02-25 01:23:24 PM  
So.. did they find the briefcase? Like, I just KNOW this was the guy bringing my $15-mil from Nigeria.
2003-02-25 01:28:03 PM they get to keep him?
2003-02-25 01:31:07 PM  
I once read an article about a kid who escaped Cuba this way. More dead than alive when the plane landed (don't think it was in the US). Odds of survival doing this have to be under 1%. Your life would have to seriously suck in your home country to take a chance like this.
2003-02-25 01:37:35 PM  

I was expecting mine yesterday. I was all set to bid on Strongbad's burrito, but the cash never came in. Some minor delay I'm sure.

Here's a great article about a guy who corresponded with a bunch of these scam artists for fun. Enjoy...
2003-02-25 02:53:50 PM  
I just flew in off the plane and boy are my arms frozen

Thanks, what a great crowd.
2003-02-25 03:15:36 PM  
Man, both of you are so lucky. I wish somebody would offer me the prospect for making millions of dollars for doing nothing but sharing my financial information.

What would Clouseau do?

Charge Airline with littering??
Interrogate mute suspect?

Just curious.
