This is why we need ejection seats in commercial flights.

"I will go up there and raise hell if you don't"
ejection hatch closes

On speakers: "We'd all like to thank you for flying, and remind you to sit down and shut up! Thank you!"

Outside: " F*********************CK!"

Channeling Yngwie, no?
2003-11-14 02:53:11 PM  
I am the viking???
2003-11-14 02:53:26 PM  
what the f is going on in norway?
2003-11-14 02:53:52 PM  
Personally if I'm going to be flying, I want to be drunk. Just incase the damn thing goes down in a ball of flaming fire from 30 thousand feet.

What the police claim that I have done is just nonsense, the 47-year-old told the paper. I got a seat between two other passengers, and because my buddy was sitting on the other side of the gangway, so I asked the guy next to me if we could change places, but he refused. I probably called him for faggot or something, but I did not mean too much with it.

Sounds like a charmer.

Those crazy squareheads!
2003-11-14 03:04:35 PM  
No sh*t. Their ancestors were vikings, after all. Never get between a viking and his mead.
2003-11-14 03:08:34 PM  
That's it, I'm starting my own airline: Byob Airlines. If you want booze, bring your own.
2003-11-14 03:08:48 PM  
For Petes' sake, just give the Norse their farking beer.
2003-11-14 03:10:13 PM  
They should get an international agreement together that says it's OK to shoot these people and ask questions later...

Probably be an effective deterrent...
2003-11-14 03:11:35 PM  
Ah my ancestors. Viking souls in the bodies of salesmen and clerks.
2003-11-14 03:12:02 PM  
Wow, not even contrite about his boorish behaviour. Someone wouldn't give up their seet and take his middle seat; wow what a surprise. And then he had to be an asswipe about it and call the person a faggot. And then he gets drunk and threatens mayhem.

Throw him in the slammer.

Damn you! I said imported, not domestic!

Thor Airlines; now with non-stop daily flights from Norway going back to Norway !
2003-11-14 03:20:21 PM  
Didn't Seinfeld do a bit on airplane nuts?
2003-11-14 03:24:34 PM  
where's the hero tag when you need one?
we need more people going nuts on planes.
i for one think that beer should stop being served, and liquor served in its place. "party in the sky" as i would call it
2003-11-14 03:25:32 PM  
I'm not Norwegian, I'm Swedish. And I'm still not going to pay that farking fine.
2003-11-14 03:25:40 PM  

Are you talking about the mp3 of Yngwie going nuts on a plane?
2003-11-14 03:26:30 PM  
"I probably called him for faggot or something, but I did not mean too much with it.

You just can't make that kind of line up. Classic.
2003-11-14 03:30:45 PM  
:) :)

"I probably called him for faggot or something, but I did not mean too much with it."

hehe indeed, best line of the week
2003-11-14 03:31:50 PM  
all he wanted was a beer...poor guy
2003-11-14 03:40:42 PM  
No beer and no leg room make Wotan... ?
2003-11-14 03:50:07 PM  
Lalalala, Yngwie sounds like a white rapper who's played too much D&D. "You released the farkin' fury."

by the power of ODIN!
2003-11-14 03:59:33 PM  
lol Cat
2003-11-14 04:05:48 PM  
Actually, that's Thor :)
2003-11-14 04:18:56 PM  
Lalala, I never heard that before. Yngwie, what an asshat! but it's funny.
2003-11-14 04:20:48 PM  
tibis, didn't you read the comic? Thor said "by the power of ODIN!" before many beatdown.
2003-11-14 04:23:31 PM  
I don't think we have to worry about the arabs anymore. Now we have to worry about Osam Bin Norway....
2003-11-14 04:30:17 PM  
What's the deal with Norway becoming an attention whore?
2003-11-14 04:37:46 PM  
Norweigan chicks are hot!
2003-11-14 04:39:04 PM  
Heh, makes me think of that joke. "A little Thor."
2003-11-14 04:40:18 PM  
Hey ProgrammerCat, you got it all wrong. Its great you wanna start your own airline up, but you gotta serve drinks, have HOT waitresses and promote a laid-back liesure style to stay in business nowadays. Hell, you could charge like 12$ a drink and even charge the "watresses" 20% of their tip money to work a flight like strip clubs do. On a long flight,you could pay for your fuel and maintenence from drink sales alone!
2003-11-14 04:49:41 PM  

I know it's thor, but didn't he used to like shout that or something or am I thinking of he-man?
2003-11-14 05:03:23 PM  
The bad translations made that even funnier.

the man was arrested by the police and thrown in the arrest...

The man allegedly several times stated that he was going to give him a beating and that he was going to smash the door to the cockpit and make hell if he did not get more beer.

Ah yes, I will Make some hell if you don't give me beer, for I am a Berserker, and need some ale to calm my Viking Blood.
2003-11-14 05:15:13 PM  
If ya don't get me annuder beer, der's gonna be hellta pay!
2003-11-14 05:21:21 PM  
We need to find a way to combine the two new fads of (1) being a drunken airborne Norwegian and (2) driving around with some dude lodged in your windshield.

Too bad Yngwie Malmsteen is Swedish, or we could use his song about being the Demon Driver.
2003-11-14 05:23:23 PM  
Is there some kind of Coming of Age ritual in Norway these days? You go somewhere remote, get royally drunk, and have to fly back to Oslo causing a ruckus? Is this an initiation for some Masonic lodge or a frat house?

Sad thing for this guy is he does not realize that John Ashcroft is after him this very minute for violation of the Patriot Act.

What Farkers the world over want to see is a group of teenaged nudist Norwegians flying into Oslo drunk as skunks. On video. I can see the late night infomercial now. "Norsken gone vild, yeh sure."
2003-11-14 06:14:03 PM  
Makes me glad that I am only half Norwegian. I need a little bit of self control.
2003-11-14 06:50:33 PM  
Them flights are long like . Me i went from ottawa to chicago, chicago to tokyo , tokyo to Sydney m,sydney to Adelaide and took japan airlines it was fun but damn was i hammered i was drinking from chicago to sydney and them asian women are hot! i was border line flirting with them and man did i need a smoke bad but i didnt freak out.

God one regret in my life is the Hungarian/Australian girl i had some drinks with she was one of the hottest girls on the planet and she offered to take me around sydney but i got rushed through customs and never saw her again:(

/thanks for listening to rant bartender. hey my life aint that shiatty after all. Good times and memories of down under and Super Happy fun land (Japan)
2003-11-14 06:52:22 PM  
I just asked a Norwegian co-worker about this sort of thing. He says Norwegians are all nuts; we're juat hearing about this more because there's more international media. Go figure.
2003-11-14 08:56:59 PM  

He was probably screaming "There's a polar bear on the wing of this plane!!"
2003-11-14 09:12:35 PM  
I think that there needs to be a scientific analysis of Norwegian beer to determine what's causing fits of berserkitude when regular drinkers of it go through withdrawal. To that end, I nominate myself to do the research.

You know, I'd actually like to see an article that favors the passenger over the cabin crew for once.

It didn't sound like this guy was as bad as the last one, who actually fought the crew and tried to open the emergency exit. There's something to be said for asking the cabin crew to be a little more flexible in dealing with passengers who might not be exceptionally charming. After all, the passengers are:

- forced to spend hours sitting in chairs that are obviously not designed for the human body
- often have screaming kids or annoying adults sitting around them
- generally get very small amounts of crappy food (and even have to pay for that nowadays)
- stewards that really don't care about you and like to ignore you as much as possible

The worst one I had was on my last cross-atlantic flight. All of the above was applicable, but what made matters worse is that some stewardess opened up the overhead storage in mid-flight and my bag fell out and landed on this really old woman. And as if I didn't feel bad enough about that, the biotch stewardess actually started yelling at me because I must not have shoved my bag in there very well or something. It really annoyed me, especially since they're the ones always warning us about opening the overhead compartment!! I kept my mouth shut though. I figure that if I had talked back, I would have been thrown in jail or something. Really sucks.
