Doofus Of The Day #1,038


Today's award goes to an inebriated airline passenger in Russia.

A naked man attempted to board a plane at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport while shouting that clothes make him less aerodynamic, the REN TV television channel reported Saturday.

The man passed through the Ural Airlines flight’s registration before suddenly stripping off his clothes and running stark naked onto the jet bridge, eyewitnesses said.

“He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed,” REN TV quoted a fellow passenger as saying.

The nude intruder was intercepted by airport staff before he could make it onto his plane to Crimea. He was later detained by police officers.

There's more at the link.

Well, I suppose that'll make inspecting his undercarriage a lot easier . . . and if they sit him down in the snow and ice still prevalent in Moscow at this time of year, it'll probably turn into a retractable undercarriage, too!

Drat, he just gave TSA some serious new ideas on methods of passenger inspection and embarkation.

Well, he is correct. Look at bicycle racers, form fitting spandex, aerodynamic helmets, shaved legs. Having your baggies flapping in the breeze is very unaereodynamic .

Anti-scientific barbarism.

Next time, allow him to board, as is.

Then, discharge him at altitude, to test his theory.

Publish the results in the passenger bulletins abroad.

Science marches forward.

The only folks worried about aerodynamics on commercial airliners are usually pilots....was he,perhaps, the Captain? We ARE talking Russia, after all....
