No Electronics on International Flights to the U.S.?

Due to that Yemeni moron that tried to blow up Detroit - and yes, he's absolutely a moron for targeting a city that has become so minor due to rampant crime and dreadful unemployment - it looks like electronics will not be allowed on international flights headed for U.S. destinations. That's right, some travelers have reported that they were not allowed to use electronic devices at all during flights headed to America. What's even more ridiculous is that the restriction isn't limited to personal electronics - airlines were instructed to turn off their in-flight entertainment, leaving some passengers with nothing to do but sleep for 13+ hours.

That's right, America. Stimulate that struggling economy by making travel into the country a huge drag. U-S-A!

...sitting on a plane for that long ESPECIALLY if I didn't bring a good book to read. That's just plane old mean! This is why we can't have nice things :(

Well, this screw up plans for some of my friends who are doing study abroad. They are going to suffer so bad on those long flights coming back to the US.

Not only are plane tickets expensive, we are going to make everything such a pain that you can't even let out a fart on the plan because we have clue that those gas maybe used for explosives. U-S-A! U-S-A!

That's just plain stupid. Why not use high tech equipment? I mean what's next? Some idiot tries to burn his clothes and the next time they'll ask everyone to travel naked? Come the f on mann!!! It's so damn annoying when they ask to take off the shoes. I mean WTF? Why not use technology to detect such criminal acts?

Guess all that's left to do during extended flights is join the "Mile High Club".

i think someone said he got training in yemen or something like that.
This sucks cause now when i'm travelling I'm going to be subjected to "random screening".

I just want to beat the sh!t out of that dude

"Due to that Yemeni moron that tried to blow up Detroit"

Although it was no Yemeni moron, but a Nigerian moron. Journalists these days... He just travelled from Yemen because it was thought that there he got a short training in a terrorist training camp how to use the bomb.

take my toothpaste away from me, but you still can not prevent someone carrying a bomb on board.

It was not US security that let this bozo on the plane...

Don't forget,
The women who was carrying vaseline, and a letter to Al-qaeda (ok might be bad but it wasn't nothing bad, just an average letter) and the whole airport was on stand still, and the security was thinking she was a terrorist.

And thus, the "terrorists" win.
