Threatening wind

A female passenger who probably had too many beans before her flight on American Airlines had a minor bodily malfunction. Most people would have kept a poker face and pretended like nothing had happened.

Instead, she lit matches to cover the smell, which caused other passengers to complain of the burning smell. The plane ended up having to make an emergency landing at Nashville and both passengers and crew members were forced to go through the security check all over again.

With all the security measures in place, who would have ever imagined that a woman with no weapons could singlehandedly bring the entire plane down with 99 people on board? So what's next? Asking all passengers what they ate before the flight?
