    The morons seems to be concentrated in and around airports and seats of government.

    Go figure.

    Braunschweig insisted the pinata was kerosene free and bought in a store that's in a secure part of the airport.


    It's kind of a weird story because he also stated that his daughter wanted him to bring something back from Mexico and so he bought it at 'Toronto's Pearson International Airport during a connection stopover'?
  6. Why are pinatas soaked in kerosene? Weird.

    there not, its another over reactions by cabin crew who are drunk on there "authorati" and that little FAA rule about following cabin crew instructions.

    This was on Air Canada, within Canada. FAA rules do not not apply.
  9. Weird, there's a subheading in the Wikipedia section on pinatas dealing with this topic. Whoever wrote it is going with the Air Canada folk wisdom that pinatas are often soaked in kerosene, but cites no source. Wouldn't there be all sorts of tales of birthday parties gone terribly awry? Or are pinatas in Mexico supposed to catch fire?

    You can SMELL kersosene. It smells just like jet fuel (which is kerosene refined to specific standards & with specific additives).

    You have a small percentage of cabin crew who think they are just security personnel, and are also paranoid about safety / security. This one should apply to US Air for a job!
