  • his cries of anguish make my nipples explode with delight!
  • If he was that drunk it seems rather dangerous to tape his mouth shut.
  • ArkAngel: If he was that drunk it seems rather dangerous to tape his mouth shut.


    Yeah I thought that too, but it all worked out in the end so it doesn't matter.

    Oh, he died?
  • Why wouldn't phone manufacturers just reorient the image to horizontal automatically?

    It's a liveleak video so you have to say it as "Did anybody died?"

    To be fair I'd put that as accept the consequences....

    just came back from an all-inclusive holiday with a Welsh Alcoholic staying at the hotel...she nearly belly danced off the roof.. (I would have cheered), eventually got kicked out of the hotel...came back claiming she was raped etc..

    I have no sympathy for these people if your going to be a twat to everyone surrounding you, expect it back.
  • Missed this first go 'round. That pic is awesome!
  • What a horrible, stupid thing to do, whomever did this should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously how hard is it to just turn your phone sideways.

    Also, taping a drunk persons mouth shut is a bad idea.
  • Heh. He sounds like a bird.

    Stop giving us boozers a bad name, asshole.
  • Put Iceland at the top of the list of totalitarian countries that I'm never setting foot in, along with China, Iran, and Venezuela. What makes these places so despicable is not their idiotic, childish governments; rather, it's their idiotic, childish people. From what I've read about Iceland, 90% of the citizenry is mentally retarded by US standards, though we tend to treat them seriously, as we do with the Chinese and the other reduced functioning peoples of the world.

    If you haven't read the full story on this passenger, here's the run down. He is a recovering alcoholic - sober for eleven years. He was in Rejkjavik visiting his family, particularly his nephew who had just been diagnosed with a brain stem disorder. The passenger had given the child a kidney several years ago, so they shared a special bound. This medical issue was another massive setback in this poor kid's life. Obviously distressing for everyone involved.

    Well, the guy next to him on the plane orders a double rum and coke; the unruly passenger (as he's been branded by the mocking media), orders a regular coke. The stewardess, who didn't have enough stick upstairs to rub together, mixes up the drinks and gives him the alcoholic one. Because of his prior alcoholism, he has a greatly diminished sense of taste, so he didn't realize what had happen until the ancient drunken feeling washed over him, seizing control of his decision making.

    He was so upset that the stewardess had just destroyed eleven years of sobriety - and quite possibly thrown him into a serious relapse - that he became upset. When the staff ridiculed him for over-exaggerating his claim, he simply lost it. Being New Years Eve, the crew was in a festive mood, so they were actually laughing and singing Auld Lang Syne while they beat him half dead and restrained him with whatever they could find. Icelandic Air, who is on the brink of bankruptcy, is whitewashing this incident and throwing all the blame on this poor guy.

    So go ahead and laugh it up. Just remember that there's always more to the story - though people probably won't give you that benefit when you're the victim of a corporate snow job.

    Where do you get your news from. From what I read he finished off the booze he picked up in the duty free shop, nearly drank himself to death.

    Was the nephew called "Little Timmy"? And was there an adorable kitten involved?

    He was going to Skype with little Timmy before he died, but the TSA wouldn't let him after the plane landed.

    Oh, we get it. He's juuuuust plausible enough to create a kind of uncanny valley in the domain of humour.

    In this particular case, some tort lawyer is laboriously cribbing spentmiles' entire post onto his forearm.
