    Yeah. TOTALLY, Iberson. Just like hundreds of passengers aboard two Boeing 747s COMPLETELY took out two Arabs who were wielding Utility Knives and thereby prevented The September 11th Incident...

    >_>
    <_<

    SUUUREEE.

    Let's take a closer look at this:

    a Boeing 747 Seats 524 people (in the two-class layout) and 416 people in the 3-class layout.

    For the sake of this argument, we'll go with the 3-class.

    ok

    416 - 1(arab) = 415

    So the Matchup is between 415 (Civillians with fists) versus 1 (an Arab weilding a utility knife, see below picture).


    <-- Utility Knife

    Doesn't even the odds much does it?

    Now, Let's think for a second,

    Just how many People would a Terrorist (armed with the above utility knife) be able to kill before he was subdued?

    Better yet, How many people would've been killed if the Entire Group of Passengers decided to overtake the Single Terrorist at one time?

    Suppose the Terrorist's arm length is a good 1 metre. Suppose he is well trained in the Use of a domestic boxcutter as a killing machine, and is able to slash exactly one throat per second...

    Suppose that the average human runs at 5 m/s.
    Now, in closed conditions, like a passenger plane, one would only be able to reach, say, 1/2 that.
    So, the average passenger's speed (of charging the lone assailant) is 2.5 meters per second. Once a Passenger is within his boxcutter's reach (1 metre), he takes no less than one second to slash a throat, thereby killing the first passenger to reach him. The next-closest passenger, at this rate, in the second it took the terrorist to slash one throat, would have covered the 1 metre's length to the Terrorist's body in the second he took to slash one throat, and would already be too close to be stuck by the outward slash of a boxcutter, and would already be making physical contact with the terrorist (punching, kicking, dive tackle, etc.) One casualty out of the entire crowd of 415 civilians...(not to mention the few cuts that would be caused by falling on the non-lethal, 1/2-inch blade during the dogpile on the terrorist)
    Even without calculating this, it is easy to see that he could've been taken down.
    But he wasn't. The Passengers were afraid of a freakin' Boxcutter, for Pete's Sake.
    Imagine how much they would fear someone with a computer...

    Sorry. I guess i'm just a little too adamant when it comes to pointing out the stupidity of Normal citizens as to draw attention away from the fact that it was the U.S. Government's doing. =/
