Under the Heading of Stupidity

Unread postby KeithSmith » Thu Sep 10, 2015 7:49 pm

Here is one of many articles discussing the passengers who found it necessary to delay the evacuation of the British Airways 777 so they could retrieve their luggage from the overhead compartment:

This is not a unique event. The classic picture of passengers standing on the inflatable slide in the middle of the Hudson River shows a couple passengers standing there with their bags.

To use a well worn saying, "The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits."
