(Daily Mail)   When you are flying over the Atlantic at 35,000ft, please refrain from punching the window so hard it cracks. It freaks out the other passengers   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 24

Are we sure this wasn't just the perspex-type inner 'cover' or was it the actual 'glass' window itself?

Lots in single quotes there as I am not sure of the real names, but have been on plenty of planes that have a sort of plastic sheet before what I can only assume is glass. And no, I am not talking about the flimsy plastic blind you can pull down.

It would be nigh upon impossible to punch the actual window, let alone punch it hard enough to crack.

Unless you were Hulk.

If you were Hulk you could do it.

But if you were Hulk you'd have to fly first class or buy at least two seats.

Hey, if there is something on the wing, that shiat needs to be taken care of ASAP.

Look, people, don't make them ban alcohol in airports and on flights.

Also, although it was filled with people from Manchester, the flight originated in Florida. Eligible for Florida tag?

Obviously there was a punchable face in the reflection there.

Before any more silly comments, be sure to read the *full* farking article. At least the section where it talks about what part of the two-pane window was affected and what part would be "impossible" to break.

I was thinking we need a British Yob tag.

Then people would still not like you

My wife comes from Manchester. Someone from there trying to punch out a window in an airplane is one of the least surprising events ever.

If fark had been founded in the UK, maybe it would have a Manchester tag.

Was having Air Marshals on planes a myth? I don't think I've yet to hear a Marshal lay down the spank on some idiot mid flight.  Drunks, morons, weirdo's and basic dbags need to know they will get smacked around a bit if they act like an idiot and endanger other people's lives.

It was the window with the little hole in it that you always wonder "Why is there a little hole in the window next to my head?" That pane is there mainly to keep you from touching the actual window and also to provide an insulating layer of air between you and the actual window that is being exposed to rather cold air. The little hole is there so the pressure is equalized on both sides.

/Or that's what the aviation geeks tell me

There's probably a threshold of danger that a passenger must meet before air marshals identify themselves by getting involved. You don't want the boxcutter crew to have one act like a drunk in order to figure out who they need to ambush when taking the plane.

Every commercial airliner I've ever been in has had tiny little holes drilled through the inner pane to equalize the pressure in the gap between inner and outer windows.  You could lose the inner window entirely and it would make zero difference to passenger safety.  Until you consider maybe those shards of plastic inner window flying around...

Wait wait wait. You mean to tell me there was actual, correct information in a Daily Mail link? I'm going back to bed, this obviously isn't my universe.

/what's next? HuffPo with a readable mobile page?

I once used my fist to punch a fire door so hard it cracked right down the middle.
True Story.

/By 'cracked down the middle' I ment my fist.

There would be an effect on passenger safety. Temperatures up there are ridiculously cold, so if you touched the outer window itself, you could probably freeze yourself to it. Which would result in minor discomfort and would probably require a flight attendant to melt it off by pouring hot coffee over your hand or something. This process could also do significant damage to the ego. And imagine if you licked it!
