To be human, after all. To remain steadfast and calm after hours of being stuck inside a confined space for hours is to be a joyless robotor just someone with a nice stash of horse tranquilizers.

There is a long history of aviation-related melees involving celebrities and media people. For one, theres Bjork, who in 1996 beat the shit out of television reporter Julie Kaufman upon arriving at the Bangkok airport. And Kaufman was neither a pesky paparazzi nor a TMZ staffer willfully provoking the subject. What did she do to merit a Bjork going medieval on her ass?
All the reporter said was Welcome to Bangkok!
Bjork goes ballistic at the airport.
But thats Bjork, who likes wearing dresses made from dead swans and who sang songs like And if you complain once more, youll meet an army of me. However, it was said that the reporter had been trailing Bjork for four days.
