So I'm going to speak very slowly. For the apparently incredibly stupid in our midst. And yes, I mean stupid, not some politically correct euphemism. I mean outright dumb as a bag of rocks kind of stupid. The plane is on fire, evacuate. NO, do not stop to get your carry-on, you idiots. That was the case with the WestJet plane that got clipped by a Sunwing jet being towed in Toronto last month.
The collision caused a fire ball and people were stopping to grab carry-on before leaving the plane to get to safety. In a plane with full fuel tanks because it was just getting ready to take off. As far as I'm concerned that would the embodiment of Darwin's Theory, the law of natural selection - I'm sorry your family member is dead, because they're stupid. I encourage those who might not consider getting carry-on before leaving a plane involved in a fiery collision, a bad idea, to maybe watch a few episodes of MayDay.
