Belated congratulations

…to Air France pilot Philippe Riviere, who reacted to airport security stupidity last August in the way that everyone *wants* to [1]. Good on him, and bollocks to the security staff. Particularly since he’s a fucking airline pilot, and therefore is presumably reasonably au fait with what are and are not signs of a would-be terrorist [2].

[1] This is strictly untrue; however, hammering nails through people’s eyes is generally considered a little uncivilised.

[2] Are signs: travelling on your own, wild staring eyes, being a male under 30, carrying a Qu’ran. Are not signs: being a sarky French get, telling the ground security staff you’ve got a bomb, being the FUCKING PILOT.
