Had a few funny Southwest experiences. Favorite, though, on a cross-country flight — unaccompanied teenager, likely making the trip for the first time, flags down a flight attendant to inquire about the land she's seeing below and ask where we are.
Flight attendant, deadpan: "I have no idea. We've never been this far off course before."
Took me a while to get up to speed on this story. And see the commentary about how he's a hero or the damage he's done to his career and possibly JetBlue, think about it a bit.
Thing is, before we even get to all that — can we ask at what point it became acceptable for customers to (allegedly) assault and swear at workers? Let alone one with a mandate to ensure safety and federal law to back him up? To act that way to a fellow human being?
And now in the battle of sales and of man, it's The Most Interesting Man in the World vs. Old Spice Guy . Kind of a tongue-in-cheek article, the comments cover what most comments elsewhere have.
And, yeah, Jetpacks already set the two of them against each other, but I think didn't factor in the Chuck Norris influence.
Eh, not to stand up for the absurdity of legal action over unicorn meat, but my understanding is that's all about demonstrating that you're protecting copyright.
I'm sure the legal team is playing it extra- extra- extra-safe, perhaps ridiculously so. Reason, the way I understand, is that if NPB doesn't act, someday down the road, say, the National Fish Council can start using "the other white meat" claiming that, "well, NPB is letting everybody do it." I think I remember hearing about Apple doing something similar a while back ....
Explanation is oversimplified (and perhaps not entirely accurate), And yes, they're taking it to an extreme. But I honestly don't believe, as many commenters about this story seem to, that NPB thinks that this is a real product that is a real threat.
