cig-mkr: I pray every time I get on a plane, please let my luggage be on this plane, don't let the pilot be drunk, and no snakes.
uncleacid: Thank you god for not putting me on an Airbus.
Agarista: What did this prayer entail
Agarista: What did this prayer entail?
VoiceOfReason499: FTA: "Tweets on this topic speculated that the man experienced some kind of emotional/mental problem."That's the most succinct summary of religion I've ever seen.
aagrajag: ...some kind of emotional/mental problem...
StoPPeRmobile: [sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net image 400x225]To be fair, this is new.
ronaprhys: I've had something similar happen. Had a gentleman, who I assume is Islamic*, hold up the flight from taking off as he was praying. He'd gone to the back of the plane near the air-waitresses and the shiatters, put his jacket down, and was doing the up and down thing. Head air-waitress kept making an announcement for everyone to get in their seats. He kept praying.
GF named my left testicle thundercles: cant people just be farking normal for a few hours?
Captain Darling: The plane made an emergency landing 13 minutes early? Methinks everyone was told to sit down for landing and this guy decided his invisible friend would be pissed if he didn't get his prayer on right this second while the seatbelt sign was on. Cue flight attendants telling him to sit down and the inevitable "why do you hate my religious freedom?" butthurt, and arrestilarity ensues.
No Such Agency: ronaprhys:It's not like prayer-time magically moved around. You knew when you'd have to go through your ritual. Plan accordingly and don't inconvenience the rest of us.I'm pretty sure Islam agrees with you. Muslims can skip prayer times and make it up later if necessary, but I don't think "it was mildly inconvenient" is considered a legitimate excuse.
fnordfocus: I sat next to a woman who said Hail Marys from when the plane started taxiing until we leveled off.If I felt the need to pray that much, I probably wouldn't fly, but she didn't get arrested.
