Ann Romney was in a plane that had to make an emergency landing on Friday because of an electrical malfunction. Fortunately, the plane landed safely and Ann is alright. Mitt Romney was understandably worried, but when describing the incident later, he had this to say:

"When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no — and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem. So it's very dangerous."

Yes. It is very dangerous. Almost as dangerous as depressurizing an airplane cabin and feeding a fire with more oxygen. But you know, science is hard.

Oh That's Nice

"WE KNOW ABOUT THIS." Spotted by a passenger aboard an Alaska Airlines flight bound for Seattle. The airline has since apologized for any trauma caused to customers.
