    That would be funny, if it wasn't so tragic. In this day and age, opening that on a laptop in a plane could result in you being arrested.

    Welcome to the "security theatre" society. It's ridiculous.

    1) Laptop ~200 euro (second hand one will do)
    2) Plane ticket ~30euro(?)
    3) Conviction for opening laptop in mid air ~3years(?)
    4) The look on the irritating bastard's face - priceless. :P

    PS: If you are in a plane, over international waters, depending on the destination and home country of the plane, you can kill him without concern... you cannot be charged because there is no jurisdiction for anyone... (does not count for ships, they run under a certain flag, being "territory" of their home coutry, or land...)

    Awesome post!

    Funny stuff there Ryan. =) Seriously though 30 Euro for a plane ticket? Does this plane come with wings, or maybe a pilot? =P

    All numbers (except for the laptop) were guesstimated as I have no idea what the price for a plane ticket is for example, and google wouldn't tell me fast enough. :D

    Andy, you are right, one risks getting into real trouble over this.

    Ryan, very funny, as always.

    NetBoy, thanks for the tip!

    Fyurien, for low cost companies, it is quite possible. I just got an offer on my email from SkyEurope: 2 tickets for 21 euros+taxes.

    Netboy, you sure about ships? I remember seeing a scary documentary about the number of people who go missing on cruise ships. There was something about cruise ships in international waters not being required by law to report a crime.

    Just quickly Google'd and found this: http://www.cruisebruise.com/overboard_deaths_by_cruise_line.html

    Think I'll take a plane next time.

    Andy, ships run under flags, and from the little I know ship captains are the law while on their ship, so any crimes commited in international waters would be their decision to report or not, on a ship the law is a mix between civil and martial... you can also get killed on ambassy grounds on land and no one can do anything about it...

    Netboy, yeah, I believe the term is "flag of convenience" where ships are registered in countries with liberal labour/tax laws to make life easier for the ship operators. I'd guess this probably affects all laws that are applied to the ship and her passengers.

    It's a dodgy business when you dig into it a bit. Thar be pirates!

    That was really funny!...In this post 9-11 era, if we can't make fun of the ridiculous prejudices and biases, what can we do? This is the only way to keep one's sanity and from buying into the paranoia

    Omer, I am not as good at this as you are, but still, I try to keep a funny perspective on the whole situation. It is recommended in order to prevent a severe depression.
