Not such a good use of chemicals
« on: May 18, 2006, 08:37:19 PM »
'Rotten egg' odour fills plane

Victorian and federal police are investigating an incident on a Virgin Blue plane at Melbourne Airport in which strong gas was released in the main cabin.

The flight from Hobart was descending at 8:00pm AEST last night when an offensive smell filled the cabin.

Passengers left the plane without incident.

Detectives say a broken glass vial containing a clear liquid was found inside the plane and was giving off a "rotten egg" smell.

A police spokeswoman says charges are expected to be laid.

Virgin Blue spokeswoman Amanda Bolger says playing pranks onboard planes is unacceptable.

"It was identified as a stink capsule and it was nothing but a silly prank and we've all got a great sense of humour at Virgin Blue but obviously anything that upsets our guests really does get up our nose," she said.

The world is like an atom. The not-quite-as-intelligent people are the nucleus all packed together sharing a common...everything. We, we are the electrons. Granted we're not as smart as these engineers and what-not so we're most likely in the first orbital, but we're the electrons of this giant atom. We all have differing intelligences and ideas and we are separated from the nucleus which makes us better because no one really cares about how a nucleus acts. It's the electrons that make chemistry, except for nuclear chem, of course, which I am a big fan of.

Ya know, I never thought to do that.  But with everyone being paranoid today about terrorists they would probably ground a plane when some "unknown chemicals" were exposed.  People freak out nowadays about the "bad chemicals".  Everywhere I go they read food labels and assume anything with a name that they don't know they automatically freak thinking it's poison.

I agree Tennis.  I would not find it funny if my flight was grounded/rescheduled for later, especially if I had to catch another flight afterwards.  But the stupidity of people is something to laugh at.

Was it a prank or a warning? These are difficult times.

i agree if it were a warning then things would have been much more chaotic, so most likely this was a prank by some moron
