Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Perhaps it's time for an official maximum passenger weight? Or if there are enough travellers of this calibre perhaps a new airline specifically for the massively obese?

  2. If only they had doctors in Hungary she might have been alive today. I assume Eastern Europeans generally just chew on bark and hope for the best when they get ill.

  3. Consideration has to be given to other passengers also. Fat people cause access problems, especially when an accident occurs or when there is need for an emergency evacuation. I can think of an accident in the UK where one fat individual indirectly caused multiple deaths.

  4. That's where the fault lies. Due to an error in translation she thought she had to go hungry and the shock was too much.

  7. Any chance of a link? I'm not saying that you're telling pork pies (excuse the pun) I'm just interested to see it so that I can further my hatred of chunkers and their cake consuming habits.
     
  8. That's a good one. Cruel, but fair!
     
  9. Just Google for 'ferry tragedy, lifeboats eaten before collision.'

  10. Seat belt extender? Have you seen the ******* size of this (ex) land whale? That seat belt exteneder must have been the length of the whole of a normal car seat belt.

    Any pilots around as I wonder if an extra 200kgs in one glutinous mass plonked down in the plane would be noticeable in the handling?
     
  11. You mean this ****?

  12. Did the fattie eat them?
     
  13. I reckon KLM should have passed her over to their non-comercial side

    You might try Guy Gibson's old mob...
     
  15. You mean try bouncing fat bastards down the Mohnesee to distrupt ball bearing production?

    Well it is a bit of an extreme measure and I am not at all sure the NHS budget will stretch that far but it might be worth a go and it gets the housebound fatties out and about and useful to society again so I am all for it.
