    What the fuck? He hid in the wheel well for an entire flight before falling out on approach? That's some awesome stupid right there.

  • ||

    After an hour at 30 thousand feet (unheated, unpressurized) his body probably wasn't real cooperative with his desires. It was a damned foolish stunt, that's for certain. It's Darwin award material.

  • ||

    If only he had seen Con Air, he would have known what happens when you hitch a ride on an aircraft's landing gear.

    We should probably mandate that graduating high school seniors watch this Bruckheimer masterpiece so as to avoid this kind of tragedy ever happening again.

  • ||

    If he had seen Con Air, he would have become even stupider than he already was and might have expired from pure idiocy on the spot. Is that what you want? To kill people using Jerry Bruckheimer as your puppet? Maybe you can conduct target assassinations using The Rock for the CIA.

    You sicken me.

    Whatever man. Go back to your rich kid clique with your HBO and your fancy foreign films and your salad forks and your gigahertz processors and your pedicures and your shampoo.

    I don't see you denying it. Or denying pumice-ing your corns at the dinner table. With your plastic fork.

    "30 thousand feet (unheated, unpressurized)"

    He was identified by a hall pass in his pocket (really). I'm betting he was cutting science class.

  • Kolohe||

    Weird, I thought *not* having a multipass makes you hitch a ride in the wheel well.

  • ||

    IIRC, this has happened before. Somebody tries this stunt about every 10 years or so, with the same unfortunate result.

  • ||

    Cool interview Nick. Someone in the comments remarked that you look like Anton Chigurh when he was in No Country for Old Men.

  • hmm||

    I swooned.

    Tim Noah wants to ban the hundred dollar bill and go to a cashless society because only sociopaths and criminals would ever deal in cash.

    When it comes to being a government toady, journalists always seem to be able to outdo themselves.

  • Radley Bunko||

    only sociopaths and criminals would ever deal in cash

    But then The Man would bust you for having $200K in debit cards in your pickup.

  • ||

    Or we could just double the money supply so $100 bills are only worth $50.

    This is full of such hoots!

    "Paying taxes is every citizen's obligation under a morally legitimate regime, but what higher purpose would be served by paying taxes to Nazi Germany or apartheid South Africa?"

    Haha I guess, states which don't have income taxes are pretty morally illegitimate too.

  • ||

    what higher purpose would be served by paying taxes to Nazi Germany

    Nazi Germany had state funded orphanages.

    Using taxes to pay for food and cloths and shelter for orphans is still a higher purpose right?

  • Bucky||

    i thought that the orphanages was the place the "final solution" got its start?

    This is full of such hoots!

    He may be on to something. There was the cash William Jefferson had in his freezer. He’s not the only Congresscritter partial to the green.

    Is Zivity like an artsier Suicide Girls?

    SG's tattoed and pierced fat chicks are far classier than those Zivity skanks

    DAMN YOU NICK! I wrote to Alyssa Milano when I was 13 for advice because my little brother was always in my room, reading my diary and annoying me. The response was to slaughter my family with a furious vengeance. Now I find out it wasn't even from Alyssa Milano! Damn you Nick Gillespie, Damn you!

    Nice.

    whew! my, my, my!
