davynelson: How stupid to you have to be to actually get caught doing this?


It's not that hard for a pilot to trace a laser back to the source. Especially if they have been trained to do so (A lot of aircrew are ex-military).

This thread:

Pilots/Aircrew: This is why lasers are bad to point at aircraft.
"Learned" Scholars: It can't be that bad! Show me ONE crashed airplane! I mean, this is just another panic.
Pilots/Aircrew: Yeah, this is what can happen, and we're trying to prevent some asshole from crashing a plane.

It is America. Just give everyone on the plane laser pointers so they can shoot back. Should be easy for the cops to catch someone on the ground that just got blinded 5 minutes earlier.

Combustion: Calmamity: Why isn't the reaction to this "Oh look, some asshole is pointing a laser at us. What a dick.What's for dinner?"

Umm excuse me?? There are CHILDREN on that plane!! Maybe UNBORN CHILDREN!! Think of them!!!


I assure you, I was thinking of the children. That's why I was pointing the laser pointer at the plane full of the noisy little shiat factories.

Khellendros: Carousel Beast: Really? Can you cite that? I can't find any evidence of an accident of ANY kind attributed to a laser pointer.

Anecdotally, I've had kids shine laser pointers in my eyes while driving. I didn't even farking swerve.

Have you even seen the result of a green laser pointer hitting a plane windshield?  Look up flash blindness, or start with http://www.pangolin.com/faa/laser-aircraft-animation-and-explanation. h tm.  It's not fun, and can crash planes.


I notice you use the term 'can crash planes'.  Is that like  Cigarettes can cause cancer, or homeopathy can be beneficial?

No, officer, I wasn't pointing the laser into the cockpit of the plane.  I was traveling past the airport with my cat in the car and I stopped and was trying to see if I could get Sith Lord to jump off the top of the car as I pointed it into the night.
