(Yahoo)   Article explains why plane windows don't roll down like Mitt Romney thinks they should. The fact that gravity keeps most of the oxygen in the bottom 47% of the atmosphere is obviously a liberal conspiracy   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 308

Great time for a joke is right after you wife almost dies a firey death.

epoch_destroi: PC LOAD LETTER: threedingers: Yeah, he was attempting to make a joke

I see zero indication that he was. Not a shred of humor. Hell, he didn't even pause for laughter, he threw the sentence in there as an aside. That's not an attempt at humor.

If it were Obama, you'd be applauding his dry delivery. :/

Righties might "cling to [our] guns and religion", but you liberals cling to one interpretation of an event like you'll fall off the monkey bars if you let one thing go. Can't be wrong, though! Nope nope nope. Reality doesn't have a liberal bias; liberals are biased against reality.


Mitt isn't going to sleep with you, you know.

Although if you are a woman, he might make you wife #2.

I'm not trying to get him to sleep with me....though maybe that's hard to understand, if you're an Obama supporter. Look-- not everybody has to build a cult of personality and celebrity around themselves-- I can defend someone without wanting to fark them.

MacWizard: Shadowknight: I have only read the quote, and never actually saw a video of Romney saying this. So, was he saying it humorously or sarcastically? Because even I would have done that. Or did he mean it sincerely?

Because with the other idiocy going on into the Rmoney camp lately, it could really go any which way.

Have we previously heard Romney employ actual sarcasm?


True enough. That's too much nuance for his processor to handle. Like one of those brain teasers that always make the androids start to explode in the movies. A statement said that isn't true but meant to be taken as the opposite. Does not compute...

/this statement is false...

No, it is in no way "obvious" that he was joking. Additionally, the reports of 'everyone' laughing are bullshiat, too. He has a slight grin, but that doesn't change from his "I'm glad my wife is safe and sound.' statement, and he also doesn't pause for effect as if he had just delivered a punchline.

Here's a video:

jaylectricity: KyDave: jaylectricity: Warthog: There are so many things wrong with this. Not with the details in the article, but with the fact that the article was even necessary.

Not everybody is as smart as you. Matter of fact, just the fact that you know how to use the internet, open register a user name, pay for a subscription and post in a forum puts you ahead of 47% of the country in terms of intelligence.

So: you're implying that 53% of the country are on Fark -- and TF, at that? Unpossible!

No, silly...I mean that 47% of the country couldn't figure out how to even be on TF.


... But 53% could? What percentage was actually dumb enough to pay for Fark, then, wise guy?!? ... ... wait...I... .. .. but that would mean...

Come on.. if he wants safety for passengers when they splashdown in an ocean, have "shove head-first into window until it breaks" conveniently located assholes on phones. That's all that's needed to increase getting out of the plane alive.

So basically...even though he told it as a joke, because he hasn't utilized sarcasm often in a public race for office, clearly he never uses it and we can never interpret his words as being humorous?

NorKnOAd: My favorite part has to be:
" Because temperature and pressure go hand-in-hand (i.e. low-pressure air feels cold), pressurization is also necessary to keep cabins sufficiently warm."

It's plain wrong, and for this to be listed on yahoo "news" makes it worse. More people will see it, and more people will be come even dumber (or hopefully laugh at this statement). If you're going to write an article about science, at least have a basic understanding of said science.

I hope the dumbass tag was for the author.


To be fair they didn't say "low pressure causes low temperature", just that they go hand in hand. Which they do. Temperature does drop the higher you go.

IAAl: Ewwww, I feel dirty even reading comments from so many people involved in such a gigantic circle jerk.

Assuming for the moment that he said:

"I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don't think she knows just how worried some of us were. When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no - and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem. So it's very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she's safe and sound."

A normal interpretation of what he meant by "that" (highlighted above) is that he is referring to "you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft" (also highlighted above). It seems reasonable that one would want people not to die of smoke inhalation in a case in which the cabin fills with smoke, right? His solution is not necessarily for passengers to be able to open windows, that is just an explanation for why people can't do this on their own as they would if the vehicle in which they were traveling was on the ground.

I know, I know, a waste of words to a bunch of true believers who know that anyone who disagrees with them on anything is an idiot and a tea-bagger, anything that is wrong with the world is Bush's Fault®, and any time Obama does exactly what Bush did it is because of the Republicans.

Barbecue Bob: Great time for a joke is right after you wife almost dies a firey death.


Now come on. After my wife was in a bad accident (sideswiped at a very high rate of speed), and once I was sure she was OK I made lots of jokes about her just testing out the side mount airbags or wanting to see if the truck would explode like that old staged Dateline report.

Not saying that's what Romney did, as Mr. "Who Let the Dogs Out" has a knack for screwing up basic humor in awkward ways. But without hearing it, I'd like to at least give him the benefit of a doubt.

That is to reiterate, I'd LIKE to, but the guy has had too many foibles and goofs this campaign to believe that fully.

"A US ambassador was killed by extremeists today. Too bad we we couldn't just beam him out of there like they do on Star Trek." -Pick a hypothetical leading politician.

Where in that video is the proof that was a joke? Is it this?

Oh wait... that was when he was feeling smug over how clever he was to jump all over the death of a US ambassador for political gain.

The joke about airplane windows wasn't that amusing.

He made an ass of himself in London, that's pretty clear. I'm not here to argue that. What I am here to argue is that he made a damn joke, and you people are so ready to tar and feather him that you'll produce your OWN gaffe instead of talking about substantive issues.

What's more robotic-- Romney making a damn joke when he's often criticized for 'humorlessness', or the identical automatic response of libs/dems whenever he opens his mouth?

The egg's on your face, libs.


For the record, I'm neither a lib nor a dem.

I've just decided to try to enjoy our sad political theater as entertainment, and Romney has lately been providing most of the yuks. I'm equally critical of both major parties (and any other parties that might still be squirming in their obscurity).

lohphat: Neither of those articles go into detail of what happens to your alveoli in your lungs when exposed to a vacuum. They are thin-walled delicate structures used to exchange gasses. Having ing a vacuum on one side of the membrane will probably cause severe hemmoraging.


I wouldn't count hemmoraging lungs among "few ill effects."

Anyway, what you're describing is what people assume will happen because it's plausible. But it's not supported by evidence. What I'm saying is what is supported by real, actual evidence. Both linked articles discuss what actually happens to both animals in very-near-vacuum conditions (and in one case, a person in a low-pressure environment) -- and every description sounds like the main effects were very temporary. (Gone in minutes instead of days.) True, they don't explicitly say "the lungs didn't hemmorage." But if the lungs did, they did so in a way that wasn't damaging.

I am trying to assume he was telling a joke... it doesn't really appear that he was... and if he was it was inappropriate and not at all funny.
But I am trying to assume he was joking. Because I'd be very disappointed if someone running for the most powerful position on earth was that ignorant.

2012-09-25 12:43:39 PM  

Dimensio: In fact, this information validates Mr. Romney's statement. If the plane was at an altitude where insufficient oxygen was present outside, then opening a window would have reduced the oxygen within the plane. Evidently, liberals are unaware that oxygen fuels fire, thus removing the oxygen from the plane would have extinguished any fire present.

No? If that congressman who thought too many people on Guam could make it tip over was running for president, you wouldn't think his comments relevant?

I'm not convinced either was as to whether he (Mitt) was joking, and it's absolutely relevant if the guy who wants to rule the free world is that big of an idiot.

You appear here to argue that, contrary to the evidence of my own senses, that video (not a story) shows he delivered the line in a manner most would interpret as an obvious joke. Even if you're right about the intent, it displays a bizarre disconnect with how people perceive him and an inability to express himself with the clarity demanded of the highest office.

On the other hand "believe what I tell you, not what you see" has become a core Republican campaign motif.

Except...I saw the video? And he's clearly joking? Maybe it's a cultural thing-- a northern/upper class-to-rich humor style, but I have a lot of friends who deliver jokes exactly like that. We just have a very dry sense of humor, almost British in style.

Not that I don't appreciate the good solid laugh I got from Barbeque Bob's Stupidity Emporium. Because I do.

Alas, no Bill, no Juggalos. I guess those memes are exhausted and need a rest.

Oh, well, for no reason, here's a couple of Old People singing "Up where you belong", "Wind beneath my wings" and their collected hits.

Free_Chilly_Willy: Weaver95: Free_Chilly_Willy: Weaver95: So you are saying Romney isn't newsworthy?

No, I saying his airplane comments are not/ and were hardly newsworthy to begin with.
