Darwin Award: Missed it by that much.

AirForceVet: Darwin Award: Missed it by that much.


Despite what the headline implies, he did put his mask on first.

Actually, after putting the mask on, I would probably run video if it were safe to do so.

I'd be calling a friend to make sure he got to my porn stash before my mom did, just in case.

He put on his mask there, subby! His neighbor's mask is on too. It's not his job to fly the plane and preform the emergency landing, now if he was the pilot, then I'd understand you being upset!

I don't see the problem. Odd? Sure; many people would simply panic. Other than that? He didn't put anyone in harm, that I can imagine.

You haven't made those arrangements yet?  I always make it a point of having a friend, who knows that they have, toss the porn stash, in the event of my death.  My Mom probably actually wouldn't care, but I have religious sisters who would gloat about me becoming an atheist, because of my porn addiction.  I will not let them disrespect my memory that way.

Finally, Subby has brought safety instructions into the Twenty First Century.

Did they find something better than "your seat can be used as a flotation device provided you are Stuart  Mouse"?

We only have two parachutes.

One for Father Jack and one for the drinks cart (one of the best movie parodies ever, along with the "Speed" parody with Father Dougal in jeopardy on a milk float (milk truck) rigged to explode if it goes over 4 mph).

That looks more like the kid from Two and A Half men. In which case the adult's behavour is perfectly understandable. There hasn't been a likeable child star since the original Pugsley and Wednesday. I mean the cartoons by Charles Addams.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: He should have looked at the safety instructions

it's the little things, like the fat guy about to slide off the emergency exit right onto a pile of injured people.

The only things I hold against this guy is calling himself, "Social Media Swami," which translates to douchebag I'm pretty sure.

No one reached for the masks, he said, until the crew prompted everyone to put them on.

A whole planeload of Darwin bait. What did they think the masks were there for?

Just giving credit. I have no association.

The mask is on, and this person isn't the reason that there's some in the cabin, so I'm curious where the Darwin Award would come into play. Are you maybe confused about the concept?

I have to say, I don't see the problem here. I know it's fashionable to biatch about 'selfies', but it sure beats panicking and causing a nuisance. However you handle a stressful situation, If you don't make things worse for other people, I don't think it's really an issue.

But you SHOULD be making it worse for others in a situation like that, that's the point. How else is Leslie Nielsen going to do magic tricks?

I absolutely loved that TFA linked to a video of the scene in Airplane!. I don't know that I could freak out even in a crash if they started playing that. It would put the whole thing into perspective and remind everyone that panic would fix nothing, either the plane is going to crash or it isn't.

Most likely, it isn't, of course.

Probably trying to attach a screenshot to his call log to enhance client service in the future, when they encounter such a "feature" when flying.

If he's into that stuff, why not?  What else are you going to to in his situation?  If that plane had crashed we'd all be saying "at least he died doing what he loved, uploading selfies".
 
2014-02-01 01:20:51 AM  
I know for damned sure I wouldn't be chancing my electronic device being an issue that worsens the problem of a plane already known to be having problems.

But then I'm not a self-centered attention-whore asshole who cares more about my Twitter following than my fellow passengers.
