Unbelievable...

A Malaysia-bound plane had to turn back to Saudi Arabia after a passenger realised she had left her baby in the terminal.

The pilot, en route to Kuala Lumpur, made the unusual request to return to the airport in Jeddah shortly after takeoff when the passenger told cabin crew she had forgotten her child.

“This flight is requesting to come back,” he tells another colleague. “A passenger forgot her baby in the waiting area, the poor thing.”

The pilot can be heard repeating to the air traffic operator: “I told you, a passenger has left her baby in the terminal and she is refusing to continue the flight.”

After a brief pause, the flight was given permission to return to the hub. “OK, head back to the gate,” the air traffic controllers said. “This is totally a new one for us.”

How soft is this game becoming? How the hell did May get suspended for that? Couldn't even call it a bump was closer to a check and further to that with minimal force...

This laws committee needs a rethink they are going to lose a lot of male fans if they keep neutering the physical side of the game.

I’m disgusted that the top google search over the past day or so is for the uncut vision of the attack in New Zealand.
What type of people are we?
So many posters have actively sought out and watched it, I can't believe it.
I can't even watch the news without crying.

Savage apes that specialise in tribal warfare.

We're capable of far better, but really... we're pretty abhorrent creatures.

I'm the same, Maggie. I heard one story about something he did and that's enough for me.

The media can't help but turn it into murder porn either. They wring their hands and make frowny faces, but they can't help but see a chance to cash in on the suffering of others. I don't watch free to air except for footy and occasional news, but I briefly flicked through some channels last night and saw some piece of human filth hosting what looked like a clip show of the body cam footage. They were running through the whole course of events, apparently not showing the actual murders but playing plenty of the footage of him driving around, walking into the mosques etc.

Basically doing exactly what this guy wanted. In their own sick way they were glorifying what he did.

Reaffirmed my view that commercial free to air TV is now the open sewer of the media landscape.

This :handpointup:

Why would 60 minutes show that footage from the survivors mobile phone last night?

I implore anyone who has kids or teenagers or even as an adult think they have an addiction to "technology" to read this book I read it late last year.
It has changed my families use of social media and gaming in our household...…….for the better.

Tarrant has failed.
The exact opposite of what he aimed to create is happening.
All colours, all creeds, all religions are uniting.
He and his kind will never succeed.
This bought me to tears.

Young men, young white, black, yellow, Maori men. Respecting those “different” from them.

I didn't experience the tears, my body was inhabited by goosebumps though.

Agree.
They do things differently, not sure if it's the size of the population or what it is.
They are a special breed and we can take some lessons from them.
