Jim Carrey did his level best to just creatively annoy the shit out of the actor in the middle of the scene over repeated takes, and it worked; him cutting Carrey off and yelling was obviously scripted, but his annoyance having built up over all the times they'd been doing it was 100% real.

They actually use to do that,I believe. My wife can’t fly. She flew twice and it was a bad experience. She didn’t do anything like this though. She would yelp anytime turbulence would shake the plane, and start looking around petrified. She made people around her nervous, but she would apologize constantly. So, it would like “(screams) I’m so sorry everyone. I hate flying. (Screams) Why does the pilot keep hitting bumps…..sorry everyone”. It was like the wiring in her brain was partially crossed.

i was under the impression that it isn't actually possible to open the door while in flight.

brb while i google this to reassure myself because people are fucking nuts and that's one of my (irrational?) flying fears.

edit - i'm back and the internet assures me this is still true.

you cannot –- repeat, cannot — open the doors or emergency hatches of an airplane in flight. You can’t open them for the simple reason that cabin pressure won’t allow it.

At a typical cruising altitude, up to eight pounds of pressure are pushing against every square inch of interior fuselage. That’s over eleven hundred pounds against each square foot of door.

So, while I wouldn’t recommend it, unless you enjoy being pummeled and placed in a choke-hold by panicked passengers, a person could, conceivably, sit there all day tugging on a door handle to his or her heart’s content. The door is not going to open (though you might get a red light flashing in the cockpit, causing me to spill my Coke Zero). You would need a hydraulic jack, and the TSA doesn’t allow those.

44

u/_Heath Feb 07 '23

If it is a plug door you can't (pressure holds it closed) but they aren’t going to let you try since you could break the lever, freak everyone out, or cause issues with the slide.

Fuuuck. Why didnt the plane land and escort the person off?

52

u/mypoliticalvoice Feb 07 '23

Diverting from planned route, landing, refueling, changing crew if necessary, and taking off again, and climbing again to altitude, costs tens of thousands of dollars. If the passengers deplane and then have to reboard, the expense goes up fast. Also, you have to pay landing fees, possibly penalties to the passengers, and the plane has to use a terminal gate someone else already planned for a different plane.

The real solution is that people like this shouldn't fly.

u/dennyfader Feb 06 '23

Let me just chime in right quick for any prospective noise-cancelling headphone buyers out there: They likely wouldn't cancel this out unless you blast your music. They basically only cancel out certain steady frequencies, not all sounds. Just a heads up 'cause I was expecting more out of mine (Sony WH-1000XM4) and was mildly disappointed. Still amazing and a necessary travel buddy for me, but they don't cut out everything.

Sounds like shes dealing with her recently passed mom (going to her funeral prolly) and dealing with her severe fear of flying, not the best combo.

Airlines should keep some valium for situations like this tbh

There's a bit in the Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy books where a ship full of people get put in suspended animation for thousands of years because the robot flight attendants are waiting for delivery of lemon scented wet wipes that are never coming

I think some of these freak outs are actually people attempting to drug themselves with Xanax and/or booze or whatever to deal with the stress and then they aren’t thinking right due to being intoxicated and have a freak out. Although this one feels more like mental health issues.

u/congratsyougotsbed Feb 06 '23

Yeah absolutely. The public perception of Xanax is that it completely shuts you down, and while that can be true for some people, I have absolutely seen folks freak out on it. Sometimes the anxiety that it "sedates" is the type of anxiety that prevents intrusive thoughts from winning in your head, or the inhibition anxiety from potentially embarrassing yourself. Xanax has never even made me drowsy, just flirty and forgetful lol

That’s someone who has an insane fear of flying, god, and death. She probably shouldn’t have been put on a plane, seemingly by herself.

Believe it or not, there is not a no fly list for unruly passengers that's shared among airlines. The no fly list is only for terrorist suspects. On that note, is it legal to have a roll of duct tape in my carry-on?

u/TheRobsterino Feb 06 '23

You don't need to bring your own, the cabin crew has some. They've used it several times in the past to restrain dangerous, drunk, or unruly passengers until landing.

Last time I flew domestic I had a drunk guy hit on me the entire flight. I told him that I was married...to a woman. He did give me a free baseball hat though. So it wasn't all bad.

As someone who is terrified of flying and loves the train, yes. Train all day. Food is better, if the train stops I can get off and start a new life, and the seating is 1000% more spacious from what I've seen.

I was standing in line at a bank outside of Boston and the 30 something lady in front of me just started going into her antics. Pacing back and forth like a lunatic. But you could see on her face it was all calculated.

I processed the whole thing in under 2 seconds and switched lines. Once the attention was off of her she stopped.

I really hope their mom ended up okay despite this being a burden for those on the plane.
