I sat one seat away from Bob Katter. The Australians out there will know who he is. he is a National Party member of Parliement. Anyway, the guy is crazy - there was this woman who was a first time flyer next to him, and she was really scared. So, this guy totrued the poor woman and stated talking about airplane crashes and how bad some of them were but not to worry because we will all die instantly and so it won't hurt. The flight was an Ansett one from Brisbane to Townsville. So that is what John Howard ment when he was talking about "north queensland nationals".
(by the way i vote liberal so nobody can say i have something against the coalition)
And my friend - he was on the same flight as Pauline Hanson! Buy, these are dangerous flights. He sat 2 rows away from here, and it was from Perth to Sydney when her and her loonies where on a canpain tour. My friend said that peroidically, people would turn around and give her dirty looks, and you could see her stewing htere like she wanted to get up and bit someobdies head off. They try to give her window seats apparently so her supports (they very few that can afford to fly) don't go up and wish her luck and cause a war in mid air with the rest of the passengers! That would really put a 737 to the test - i can see the coffee pots flying out of the gallays! For those of you who are interested, the leader of the one nation party flies Qantas!
