Execellent, excellent! In keeping with the general level of discussion and
the spirit of this mailing list with respect to WTC 911, I hereby offer my
suggestions on better ways for passengers to fiol hijackers:
1. have well-endowed, beautiful woman ride the plane, and have them strip in
front of the hijackers, so that when their attention is diverted, the rest
of the passengers can bull rush them.

2. Have poison gas in the vents and tehn the drop down oxygen masks are the
only thing that will keep you alive, thereby fioling the hijackers (also no
carryon gas masks allowed).

Do you guys have any more?
