You know what you don't want to do when travelling through the United Arab Emirates? Carry drugs. Those affluent folk do NOT like narcotics of any kind. Unfortunately for Keith Brown, a British youth worker, he was carrying. The weird part is how much and where he was carrying it.

Use your imagination--You are an Israeli environmental scientist (this will be a good test of your imagination) on a Turkish flight to India. Along the way the plane develops mechanical problems and the pilot lets the passengers know that they are unfortunately going to have to put down early--IN IRAN. Time to kiss your Jewish ass good-bye, right?

"JetBlue will review the day's events to determine whether it could have handled the storm differently and how to prevent similar problems from arising again", says JetBlue spokesman Bryan Baldwin.

Posted by wizeGurl (12319 views) Add this story to MyYahoo Add this article to del.icio.us Submit article to Reddit Add story to Furl Add story to StumbleUpon [E-Mail link]


[Travel]
A man named James Moore found himself on the no-fly list a year ago. He's never done anything illegal or that might link him with terrorists.

Then he can get on the plane, after a nice thorough security search. There is, of course, no way to be taken OFF the list, and heaven forbid that they cross-reference the list with something people generally have on them, like a specific credit card or driver's license number.

While the court was hearing the case, police swung batons and lobbed tear gas shells outside the building to disperse about 500 kite-makers and kite-flying enthusiasts who were trying to attend the proceedings.
