AIRLINE pilots fear their jumbos could be shot down by conspiracy theorists who believe they are being poisoned by commercial aircraft.

The conspiracy theorists are part of a global “chemtrail” movement that claims jets are spraying toxic chemicals over heavily-populated towns and cities around the world.

“Threats to shoot down aircraft or harming pilots are becoming more prevalent, overt and alarming,” says Mike Glynn, a current airline captain and former vice-president of the Australian and International Pilots Association.

“While most can be discounted as empty threats, there remains the possibility that some unhinged individual or group may act. It is beginning to cause consternation in pilot ranks.’‘

Captain Mike Glynn, who describes some of the conspiracy theorists as having “room temperature IQs”

“room temperature IQs”

I hope he made it clear he was talking about Celcius.

In fahrenheit it is bad too (21 C = 70 F).

But Celcius is more realistic.

That will make it about 2.725 Kelvins* or a little less than 3 degrees above absolute zero.


* or 2,725 K for those who use their comma´s and decimals correctly.  wink

That sounds about right for the IQ.

Some people are so afraid of being normal they will do everything in their power to prevent it.  Believing in far out conspiracies is just the start.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
