Just when you thought airline ads couldn’t get much lower than Spirit Air’s “Check Out The Oil On Our Beaches,” comes this: the closest a commercial airplane comes to making a porn film. The Russian airline advert has flight attendants strip to bikinis and wash the plane with all the subtlety of a James Bond opening number or MTV rap video. Halfway through, the director seems to forget they were even washing a plane and just has the flight attendants wash themselves. Perhaps they were trying promote personal hygiene. Or maybe they ran out of time and had to return the aircraft.
This Discovery Channel diver decides to hitch a ride on the dorsal fin of a great white (about 2:30 min into the clip). Wonder if travel insurance covers for this.
Somehow a commission found that four Canadian police acted lawfully when they Tasered a nervous Polish traveler at the Vancouver airport, which resulted in his death minutes later. Robert Dziekanski, 40, died in late 2007 and an amateur video of the violent (see below) arrest zipped around the internets.
The report by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the police officers “failed to adopt a measured, coordinated and appropriate response.” It also stated that the senior officer “failed to take charge.”
Dziekanski was an anxious first-time flyer, spoke only Polish and had just landed in Vancouver and couldn’t find his mother, who he’d been searching for for 10 hours in the baggage area. What’s the police response to such a predicament? Taser him to death, what else.
Hard to imagine what this commission was thinking. These officers should clearly not be allowed to wear police badges and they idiot who tasered him should be looking at a manslaughter charge.
Watch the video and see for yourself. (violence starts about 5min into the video)
