The banning on modern electronics, and wireless networks on commercial flights was actually started by the German Nazi Party in 1937. This was to prevent poorly made Russian suitcase computers exploding mid flight, while being used by passengers, which had downed at least two 150 seater jets in the year previous.
Liquid lunch per chance?
Clearly a mistake - in 1937 they would have been the National Socialist party.....
And I am pretty sure they didn't have 150 seat Passenger Jets in 1937.
I can't believe I am the first person to point out that anything called a 'computer' in 1937 would not have been air transportable, let alone fit into a suitcase. Are we talking of Human computers? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_computer ) Maybe they ate something dodgy?
Cough, Macuser is clearly taking the pith, or taking drugs.
He is a mac user, he will believe anything however obviously wrong as long as there is some skewed way in which he can deem it to be cool.
