The year's not over yet, still time for an Honourable Mention candidate. On Christmas Day, a homeless guy jumped the fence at the airport in Phoenix AZ, ran up to a Southwest 737, and ... slapped one of the engines. The aircraft was unharmed, as was the homeless guy, who was quickly arrested. I hope the engine has learned its lesson.
Are you shure that engine was okey after all? I have bad news from some Buryatija here...

Agree, it sounds like past tense. What's the current tense if you're still alive?

I hope the TSA made the guy take off his shoes and belt before he jumped the fence ?

Just shows what a useless exercise the whole TSA nonsense is !!

( as we know, the Bad Boys will do exactly what they want to do precisely when they want to do it )

If you haven't been killed by an electric shock then you've 'only' been electrified,zapped,etc.Electrocution involves someone being killed by electricity

A spokesperson from Boeing was heard to say, 'There was no harm done, it's company policy to make our engines bump-proof.'
