Why You Fasten Seat Belts

Sudden turbulence caused injuries to at least 26 passengers on a Continental 767 flying from Rio de Janeiro to Houston this morning. The plane made an emergency landing in Miami.

It is just simply amazing at the behaviour of passengers. On the one hand, manuals advise you to "move around the cabin" to avoid phlebitis but at the same time they tell you to "Shut the fuck up, sit the fuck down."

Sorry for the profanity, but it's the same thing as people wanting to get on a train even though they see there are people getting off.

They are so CONTINUALLY STUPID. I don't know how many times I've told my seatmate to maybe NOT GO TO THE BATHROOM right now, but I swear it's a losing battle. They WILL do it.

I've been in many frightening turbulent episodes, some involving massive lightning blasts, and even though I've flown easily over 2,000 times, I ALWAYS knew the rule: SIT THE FUCK DOWN AND SHUT THE FUCK UP, with the seatbelt on.

Go ahead, assholes, tear a new hole in the ceiling with your head if it TEARS SOME SENSE INTO YOU.
