A Different Sort of FGS For Your Amusement….

1967 Blizzard

There was a protest by a group of overgrown children styling themselves Extinction Rebellion at Heathrow Airport a few days ago.  This is the same group of nincompoops who decided to interrupt commuter traffic in London by gluing themselves to buildings and sewer covers last summer, among other things.

During this particular episode of Spoiled Overgrown Snots behavior, one individual decided to make a real statement by gluing himself to the top of the fuselage of a British Airways passenger jet. He immediately regretted it because, in his words, he’s ‘terrified of heights’, and has impaired eyesight.

Popular Mechanics took a close look at how effective this would be and how to do it properly.  https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/a29444239/glue-yourself-plane/

The response from locals and working citizens: We are not amused!  Brexiteer Julia Hartley-Brewer essentially deemed it absurd. https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1187463/Extinction-Rebellion-news-London-Julia-Hartley-Brewer-protests-live-today-protest-October

If the ExtinctRebs decide to bring it over here, I hope that it’s in the winter, and they try to make it happen in a slop storm like the one we went through a year ago in November. That was fun. I found out just how sturdy and well-insulated my home is.

    They shoulda just taxied out and taken off. Fuck ‘em.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      Yeah, BUT he could have come unglued from his spot and damaged part of the airplane, let alone mess with the aerodynamics by causing drag. If it weren’t for that I’d totally agree with you!

      • SFC D says:

        Might be fun to watch him run through the engine, if it wasn’t such a waste of a perfectly good turbofan.

    • Berliner says:

      Better yet, tow it away from the gate and park it out in the open for a week or two while they research the most environmental way to remove the glue without damaging the paint.

      That will give him, and others in the movement, time to reflect on their actions.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        I’m about ready to come slap unglued on these idiots my own self. They shoulda had that ass tore up when they FIRST showed it as a toddler. Your right to free speech and protest ends where my right of unimpeded movement begins.

        You can overcome drag by applying more thrust…or lubricant. Leastways, that what she said.

    These brainless budding terrorists aren’t just gluing themselves to shit, they’re also destroying (or attempting to..) property.

    I’m glad they got their protest permission slip yanked. F these clowns!

    This is the LIVE Video of the Attention Seeking James Brown posted of himself on top of the airplane. One does not need FACEBOOK to view his video:

    Bring in the de-icing truck.

  5. Did those nincompoops have to pay a COVER CHARGE for gluing themselves to the manhole covers/lids.?????

    • Berliner says:

      To get traffic moving again they just have to flip the manhole covers/lids over.

      The weight of the nincompoops may cause them to fall free from the glue. Then they can figure out how to get out of the sewer.

    They, like the Antifa pukes, aren’t trying their shit in my neck of the woods and that’s healthy for them because they’d get beaten, shot or run over by people like me who are too busy working for a living to put up with them or their shit! Why don’t they glue themselves to say, BNSF Railroad’s Chicago to LA mainline in a rural area where freight trains regularly pass through at around 70 MPH? IMHO it’s only a matter of time until Darwin starts harvesting some of those dumbshit snowflakes!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      I agree with you, API. I’m not nostalgic for the Good Old Days, but if we didn’t behave, we got punished for it. They’re committing vandalism, nothing else. And many of them are on the dole (welfare) over there, too. They don’t have jobs of any kind, but they have government handouts.

      The irony in this is that, with the sun in a Solar Minimum, we may be facing a cooling/cold period similar to the Little Ice Age. I’m waiting to see what happens when the cold comes early and stays late, and they can’t get their usual treats.

    Oh, Climate change!

    I thought he was promoting “CLIMAX” change!

    Never mind…..need more caffeine this morning. 😉

    Dare we say it about the dork…

    Oh. Glued yourself to the manhole cover eh? Sorry. EMS is busy. So are the cops.

    Stick around, and try not to wreck any cars that ignore you. Rush hour is going to suck for you.

    Now imagine some “loud pipes save lives” type stopping nearby and goosing the throttle at random intervals….
