Airplane Scorpion reportedly stings man on flight to Calgary

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgar...ston-1.4067154

Quote:
Emergency medical crews made a dash to the Calgary airport last Sunday after word that a passenger on an inbound flight from the United States appeared to have been stung by a scorpion.

The feisty stowaway had hitched a ride on United Airlines flight 1418 from Houston and bitten a man in his 60s.
Between being beaten up, and bitten by a scorpion, seems choosing to fly the friendly skies is not an accurate motto for United anymore...

They could change it to United: Rock You Like A Hurricane.

If the scorpion bite is deadly, they can say to the Chicago-Louisville guy, "Stop complaining, you didn't die/get paralyzed." If on the other hand, the bite hurts but has no lasting issues, they can say to this guy "Don't complain, it's not like you got knocked out and your face bloodied." Either way, it's a win for UA.

Dave...only in my 40's so I should be Ok on UA.
