This time it was too much. Menear did not explode in rage; he merely asked a sarcastic question. But it was one that would lead to his immediate arrest, a night in jail, his suspension by US Airways, and months of legal wranglings before he was finally acquitted of ‘making terroristic threats and permitted to return to his job. ‘Why are you worried about tweezers, Menear asked, ‘when I could crash the plane?" - Author: Oliver Burkeman
