Windows On A Plane

On Monday, Mitt Romney offered a remedy
to the problem that caused his wife' s
airplane to land prematurely last week:
Allow passengers to roll down the airplane
windows.
Ann Romney' s plane was grounded Friday
after the main cabin filled with smoke. The
small electrical fire caused no injuries, but
apparently did cause the Presidential
candidate to forget the dangers of altitude.
Firefighters board Ann Romney' s plane
When you have a fire in an aircraft, there' s
no place to go, exactly," he told the LA Times. "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. its a real problem.”
Air crafts do not open windows because the cabins are pressurized to fly safely at an altitude of
tens of thousand feet. Opening a window in an airplane would seriously sicken the passengers
and crew.

I really wish there was just a candidate i could be enthusiastic to vote for instead of having to settle on one. Like i dont want to have to choose the lesser of two evils
User avatar #151 to #144 - awesomenessdefined (09/25/2012) [-]
You guys only have two candidates?
User avatar #157 to #151 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
theres more than one, but no other party gets PAC or electoral support whatsoever
User avatar #159 to #157 - awesomenessdefined (09/25/2012) [-]
You can still vote for them though, right?
#178 to #159 - cbi (09/25/2012) [-]
Voting for the other guys is kinda like not voting at all. I'd like to pretend I'm making a difference with my vote, y'know?
User avatar #162 to #159 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
thats what I'm doing, but 3rd party canidates never get elected.
User avatar #164 to #162 - awesomenessdefined (09/25/2012) [-]
Not with that attitude they don't
User avatar #200 to #164 - ninjasquirle (09/25/2012) [-]
He's being realistic, I'm all for being energized about a candidate you believe but understand the in the U.S. all the third parties hold about 2% of the general population voting block. The electoral college decides who wins the election also and the reason we don't go with gross vote numbers is that it prevents states like California and New York with giant populations from dominating federal politics. Its not a great systems and its hard to change but I still prefer it to "mob rule".
User avatar #169 to #164 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
I mean its just not up to the people, its up to the college
User avatar #153 to #151 - jacencaedus (09/25/2012) [-]
we have more but some people don't realize this because after the primary's attention fall away from them
User avatar #156 to #153 - awesomenessdefined (09/25/2012) [-]
Then just vote for the other guys
User avatar #166 to #156 - jacencaedus (09/25/2012) [-]
technically our votes don't even count for **** . We use a system called the electoral college that was designed back when news could take days or even weeks to get anywhere. Why we still use it I don't know, what our vote counts as is what is called the popular vote
User avatar #160 to #156 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
back in the early 90's this guy Ross Perot got 20% of the popular vote but not a single electoral vote
User avatar #163 to #160 - awesomenessdefined (09/25/2012) [-]
Would he have won if he got the majority? I don't see a problem here. Vote for the best, not the less bad of the two biggest
#186 to #163 - atr (09/25/2012) [-]
All but two states do a majority takes all. So if someone wins the majority of the votes in a state, they get all of the votes from the electoral college from that state, while Maine and Nebraska ration it off by percentage. There has only been one semi-recent election where more voters voted for someone else and the other won.
User avatar #194 to #186 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
I know that, im saying not a single voter even selected him. Its not like Perot got only like 3 votes in california so the democrats took the majority or something. 0/538 voters in the electoral college voted for him AT ALL
User avatar #167 to #163 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
you can litteraly get 100% of the popular vote, as in every single person who votes, votes for you and you can still lose. Its still up to the electoral college
#177 to #167 - atr (09/25/2012) [-]
Doesn't exactly work that way mate.
User avatar #199 to #177 - IcWhatuDidThar (09/25/2012) [-]
popular vote is just trivial. It literally has no say.
User avatar #187 to #177 - ballzach (09/25/2012) [-]
It does really. I mean, how did Ross Perot get 20% of the popular vote, that was around 19 million people, but get 0/538 electoral votes. I mean its not like the majority carried the state, not a single member of the college even voted for him
User avatar #154 to #144 - jacencaedus (09/25/2012) [-]
Ron Paul
User avatar #184 to #144 - ninjasquirle (09/25/2012) [-]
Gary Johnson, like Ron Paul but less out there in his ideas. Also while he was governor he left his state billion in the black which is quite a lot considering they were in debt when he took office. Even had the balls to admit he used pot to help with his pain after breaking his leg.

>Fire in an enclosed space
>Add more oxygen
>Romney logic
User avatar #117 to #21 - dafunkad ONLINE (09/25/2012) [-]
well have you ever been in/really near a fire, if there is one thing you want is oxygen, you can't breath, and everytime you do it's like breathing acid in your lungs then you start coffing but when you coff you innhale more smoke, soon you get dizzy and hope you don't faint so you can stay alive,


(i really don't care about romney and **** , you may have noticed but i'm not american, and yes my english really sucks but i'm still learning)



(also yeah opening a window in a plane is ******* stupid, but for the oxygen part i tend to agree)
User avatar #22 to #21 - ruinsage (09/25/2012) [-]
after the fire is put out, and there's a lot of smoke left, oxygen is kinda nice though
#26 to #22 - anon (09/25/2012) [-]
YESSSS
LET'S OPEN WINDOWS IN AN AIRPLANE THAT GOES OVER 1000KM/H

The backdraft caused by adding more oxygen in an enclosed space containing a fire would probably kill everyone before the pressure dropped enough though

Unless you weren't being serious, in which case I withdraw my statement.
User avatar #307 to #106 - thepyras (09/26/2012) [-]
But it wouldn't kill his wife. The Romneys don't breathe oxygen, the idea he presented was merely to put out the fire so his wife could make the flight.

Yeahhhh Totally real.
User avatar #189 - chucknorrisTHEGAME (09/25/2012) [-]
I really don't like how both sides can make stupid comments, but only one side gets nailed for it. Obama's made comments like "57 states" and "Let's keep our products stamped with 3 proud words: Made in the USA" and it gets skipped right over. It's not that it means they're stupid, it's just that everyone's bound to say something stupid once in a while. I think if people are going to jump all over comments like these, they need to do it with both sides. But they won't, because they prefer one side.
User avatar #235 to #189 - infiniteduress (09/25/2012) [-]
when Obama said 57 states he probably accidentally included US territories, and the larger outlying islands, and the "made in the USA" thing was just a slip of the tongue.
What Romney said was a statement based in complete ignorance which can be categorically proven false, unlike most economic and political statements that candidates make which are arguable.

And let's not forget Biden! He's comedy gold.

"Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs."
#271 to #189 - pineappletime (09/26/2012) [-]
Biden once accidently called Obama "Barack America".

I'm not a Romney supporter, but this is getting absurd.
He meant it as a joke. He doesn't actually think you can roll down plane windows.
#181 to #122 - anon (09/25/2012) [-]
The problem with politicians and other idiots is that you can't be completely sure they're joking. They're just dumb enough for it to be believable that such comments are serious.
User avatar #304 to #181 - InglushMayjur (09/26/2012) [-]
Well, yeah, there are the occasional nuts like Akin who believe in legitimate rape and whatnot. But, cynical as I am, I really do try to believe that a man running for president would have the sense to understand that you cannot remove windows on airplanes.

It'd probably help to see the actual video of Romney saying it, because I feel like his tone of voice might be able to indicate he meant it as a joke. Meh. Whatever. Man, **** this election.

Why can't Neil DeGrasse Tyson run for president and do all that sciencey stuff? I WANT A MAN ON MARS, DAMMIT!
#99 to #41 - samxdaxman (09/25/2012) [-]
i dont think he knows much about politics (dont quote me on that, i dont know much about his life outside of science stuff) and how to run a country. he is a great man, dont get me wrong, but i think his forte is more science.

Well so far I have only found this on 3 sites:
Yahoo, Examiner, and Think Progress.
Yahoo and Examiner news are about as legit as a high school newspaper, and Thinkprogress is a site that is known to be far left wing. Now if someone can bring up a source from a major news corporation i might believe it.
User avatar #103 to #94 - proudnerd (09/25/2012) [-]
It was a joke dude. He knows basic science, as we all do. He just has an awful sense of humor. It even says it in your article that comes from a slightly left-leaning site.

Well, there was a president that actually got elected, for 2 terms no less, that was this stupid, so yes, it's possible.
