    This pic is not a picture of the incident. It's just a random pic of some super fat guy on plane.

    Every fat out of shape person has a "back" injury now.

    Looks like plenty of space for someone who is not super fat.

    I call shenanigans.

    I bet the fat dude has a traumatic BO too. Life long therapy is gonna be costly for that alone.

    I edited the OP to explain the pic is not a pic of the people involved in this incident. It's just a random pic of airline fatness.

    1. Ridiculously obese people will complain about discrimination


    2. Giant obese people should all be seated next to each other from now on, then we'll see if they see it differently

    But not all on one side of the plane. I've seen enough cartoons and movies to know that that's a guaranteed recipe for disaster.

    Yeah you gotta weigh them and distribute them to account for front, back and each side.


    Plus, it'll probably pose a less danger if you put them in the cargo hold with the luggage

    I thought they force fat people to buy two seats now.

    Good point. We should force a wall of them to line up like sandbags on the coasts in case this happens.

    I do actually feel bad for him having to contort his body in an awkward way for the duration of the flight. If you're paying good money for a seat on a plane, you should be able to fly in comfort and not have to be sore after the flight. I'm no law expert, so I don't know how much of a case he has against the airline company. There should also be seats on the plane that accommodate larger individuals, because it really isn't fair to expect other passengers to have to sacrifice their comfort when they're paying good money to fly.

    That seems like the easiest way to solve the problem. Don't like it then don't be fucking enormous.
