Two stories today about throwing food that happen to be allergens

Quote:
Though the throwers missed Gaga herself, a few eggs hit members of her entourage. It is unclear why audience members had the eggs in the first place, however.

The flight attendant reportedly showed Sefilian the airline policy on electronic cigarettes and he reportedly reacted by throwing peanuts and pretzels at the flight attendant and the cockpit door.


:verymad at all the food throwers.

I'm assuming people threw the eggs because they felt using a wheelchair was offensive? But why buy a ticket and support someone you feel is offensive? and how can you be so up on one cause, and not realize the risk of the other cause? (wheelchair and allergies being the two causes)

As for the peanut thrower.....that electronic cigarette is intended for someone quitting smoking, which means it's intent is instead of a cigarette, so in a place you CAN smoke. However, I don't understand why it's a risk and not allowed in a plane. Is it in any way harmful to other passengers? They probably GAVE him the peanuts and pretzels he threw at them....and both of those things could kill me.

Over the years I have cleaned up after many egg throwers. At schools when Dd was younger I would always go w/her after halloween to school and cleaned doors a couple of times :roll:

It is something she always watches for and now is out and about a lot, concerts, etc. and it has been a concern.
