Drunk Asleep On Luggage Belt Travels 50m.

This happened at Rome airport. He climbs onto the belt and goes to sleep,when operations starts he goes off on his travels.

I like the quote,"[The Norwegian] could have carried on going round the main belt but he could never have ended up in sensitive areas of the airport."

I guess that is only because he did not have a check-in Bar code on his wrist.

It is guys like that why we have to have signs like these. I spotted this at ORD back in '07.

50 meters? Put a tag on him and he could have traveled 1000 kilometers.

As you all might understand by now, us Norwegians are fully capable of sleeping with anybody, anytime and anywhere.

I am curious how much radiation he was exposed to when he was scanned?
I can only imagine since it was never intended to be used on people that it must exceed the normal amount in a Hospital.

Will he have to pay an additional "Passenger Movement Charge" ?

Could you imagine the excess baggage charges if he was flying on Ryanair? Sir, thats 70kgs, and you had'nt reserved in advance, and its out of gague, and not correctly labled. The check-in girl would be having shivers of extasy over her commission.

It took 10 replies for this to be referenced. What is this site coming to?

Bravo to BUF for giving us the timeless quote and bravo to the norwegian for making us chuckle.
