We are so stupid…

From The Christian Science Monitor:

In the moments before the F-16 fighter jets were summoned, the crew of Frontier Airlines Flight 623 feared that a passenger’s frequent and unusually long trips to the aircraft lavatory on Sept. 11 were a sign that a potential terrorist plot was underway.

Later, when the plane had landed in Detroit, reports suggested that the peculiar bathroom breaks had been a reckless tryst between two passengers determined to “make out.” [emphasis added]

I literally can’t think of anything to say.


I guess I do have something to say – only in the United States could it be “reckless” to go to the bathroom to kiss. A very weird adjective unless you are a hopelessly paranoid nation.
