    Edit: to add a more provocative question. What would you do, if, as we see in the video people are trying to get off a burning plane, and every second may count determining how many live, ..if the people in front of you were slowing down the evacuation process as they tried to get their carry on luggage off first?

    -----------

    This came across my youtube feed today and I clicked on it and currently watching it...



    I fly out today in about 8 hours.

    I realized that i often seem to watch these type videos before flying and even once when I got on a WestJet flight and they had the live TV on with Discovery Channel, and an episode or MayDay, i just flipped it on and wsa sitting watching it before takeoff.

    I actually noticed the passenger beside me looking over and seemingly horrified so I quickly turned it off and made a joke about it probably not being the best thing to view right now. I got no comment back.

    Watching something like that does not bother me at all. I know the odds of plane crash are super low, and watching that does not change that.

    Am i freak for liking to watch these, when about to fly?

    Would it have been wrong for me to have left that episode of Mayday playing as the plane took off as the airline was the one allowing it on their channel choices??

    Is this the most thread topic you have scene in a long time???

    I sit at the back of the plane which has the best chance of survival while wearing an ankle length leather jacket with a huge hood which will protect you from the inevitable fireball, I carry my own personal extra loud whistle and distress flair

    I did this to myself before we mobed to Thailand. Because of all the soldier bags and shit we were overweight slightly.

    I freaked myself the fuck out because a week before I was on this air disaster kick watching all those mayday shows.

    So when we landed in Anchorage we slid on the icy runway a bit. Will never do that again before I fly

    I watch rollercoaster acccidents online before going to the amusement park. Adds more spice to the day that way (rides instantly feel 15mph faster by doing that)

    so long as no notable people of interest, foreign dignitaries and/or anyone that owns shares on a lucrative patent with a Rothschild, you should be just fine

    I would shove the person along that was holding up things((Careful not to push them to the floor)) and within 3 seconds...force them to abandon their plan from the rush that would fill in the gap and make it impossible for them to get back to it, then I would try and help as many people off as I could

    My buddy used to watch videos of surfers being attacked by sharks or going through accidents during surfing, right before we go surfing.
