- Sectarianism, alive and well at 20000 feet.
Banning alcohol on planes because of this makes about as much sense as banning football because of this.
A lot of sense?
It does seem like insanity that in 2019 people want to beat the shit out of each other because half of them don’t go to one church but support a football team, while the other half of them don’t go to another church and support another football team. Being unable to wear certain colours in certain Scottish cities on match days, despite being an actual civilised human being, because you’ll get beaten up is a bit mad.Posted 1 month agoBruceWeeMember
How the hell do airlines get away with people being drunk (particularly selling them booze!) at the same time as trying to get people to take their responsibilities to evacuate safely seriously?
Last long haul flight I was on I ended up sat next to the fattest person I have ever seen on a plane. In an emergency there was absolutely no way he was going to make it out of his seat and the only way the two of us stuck beside him were getting out was by climbing over the seats in front of us.
If, by some miracle, he did make it out of his seat, I doubt the queue of fellow passengers behind him would have calmly waited for him to squeeze his way down the aisle and end up going over the top of him instead.
It sounds like have more faith in how seriously airlines take their safety evacuations than I do.Posted 1 month agomartymacSubscriber
I don’t fly often, every time I’ve been on a plane I’ve had a drink before, and I’ve accepted anything going free on the flight too.Posted 1 month ago
But unless you breath tested me, or you saw me actually drinking, you would be hard pressed to know, because I’m a quiet drinker, i sit down, turn on the noise cancelling headphones and mind my own business.
Asshats getting pissed are (mostly, not always) asshats when they’re sober.
There are already laws, perhaps they need to be enforced a little more rigorously.lovewookieSubscriber
I only opened this thread to see if the words Glasgow and Rangers were in there.
it didn’t disappoint.
‘they’ say Celtic supporters are just as bad, but my observations suggest otherwise.
of course, it’s not all of them, some people just like football, others just like to fight, the same way their faithers did.Posted 1 month agokennypSubscriber
This whole Rangers and Celtic hating each other thing makes no sense to me whatsoever. It’s fairly obvious any dislike should be aimed in the direction of St Mirren.
Their primary colour is black, three players in the team wear the number 6 shirt, and if you take the letters of Love Street and rearrange them they spell “We love evil”. Well they almost do.Posted 1 month ago
