A naked man attempted to board a plane at Moscow's Domodedovo Airport while shouting that clothes make him less aerodynamic, the REN TV television channel reported Saturday.

The man passed through the Ural Airlines flight’s registration before suddenly stripping off his clothes and running stark naked onto the jet bridge, eyewitnesses said.

“He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed,” REN TV quoted a fellow passenger as saying.

Too subtle. Anyone that needs to see this will think Pat is talking about targeting that no good radical cleric.

Thousands of people in Philadelphia are gathering in a vacant lot today, in response to a strange anonymous letter distributed throughout the city:

So Firefox just broke every FF extension in the world because they let the intermediate signing cert expire.

If you're on the west coast you have 1hr and 45 min before this happens to you too!

You can disable certification until this is fixed, using a developer version and setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false. Nice user hostile design though.
