Steward Stuns Passengers with In-Flight Streak

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - An off-duty Singapore Airlines steward took off all his clothes and threw the contents of his wallet around as stunned passengers on a flight from Australia looked on, a newspaper reported.

Singapore's Straits Times said Saturday the 31-year-old man had been traveling as a passenger on the flight from Perth in Australia's west to Singapore on July 11. An airline official said the man has since been placed on medical leave.

The newspaper said the man threw a glass of wine over passengers sitting near him and began shouting as he made his way to a toilet in the middle of the plane about two hours into the flight.

"When I looked up, I saw him naked," one shocked passenger was quoted as saying.

"He wasn't even wearing underwear. He was shouting, and tossing credit cards and some photos out of his wallet all over the plane," the unidentified passenger said.

Crew members on the flight were initially unable to reach the man because they were stuck behind meal trolleys. They eventually subdued him and covered him with blankets before taking him to the toilet, where he put his clothes back on.

The man was taken to a hospital after the plane landed at Singapore's Changi airport, a spokesman for the airline said.

Whee!

Wow, there are so many things about LiveJournal I did not know until tonight. Specifically, this S2 stuff. I mean, the sheer number of options - and the ease of it all compared to S1 - is just mind boggling! I want to hug this stupid thing and cry tears of joy!

Tomorrow, my mission, should I chose to accept it, will be to find or make a new background image for the page. Something delightfully shippy, to go along with the Joe quote.

I want to thank everybody who's helped me get a better handle on That Story. I still don't know exactly what I'm going to do with it, although I'm leaning towards the idea of a series. It's like Stargate: Voyager, without all the fuss and worry about going home, and as Robert and Denise have pointed out there are tons of oppertunities for bad things to happen to our good people ;)

What I really want to do, if I'm honest with myself, is write a series like Paula Graves' X-Files series. I want people to have the same reaction to it that I did to those stories of hers, because they introduced me to the world of fanfiction and because I think they were just incredible. There was plenty of plot to pull you along, loads of angst, and of course the UST was hiked up a million times higher than it ever was on TV, to the point where you think you're going to kill somebody if the characters don't get to have sex in the next chapter *g*

In the meantime, I think I'll try going back to Sleepers 2. If nothing else, I know where that one is going, even if I'm not 100% sure how to get there.
