There are unspoken protocols airborne travelers should inherently understand: don't get plastered prior to boarding and don't use the cabin as your local gym.

Most importantly, don't be a jerk.

A Boston-bound passenger was responsible for diverting American Airlines flight 2763 to Kansas City overnight because of his unruly behavior.


The man was visibly drunk, according to WBZ news channel, when he stumbled onto the plane accompanied by a female passenger and two dogs.

Things soured as the plane departed Phoenix and took to the skies.


At some point during the flight, the wasted jetsetter – whose name hadn't been released – decided to turn the overheard compartment bin into his personal pull up bar.

David Markoski told the CBS affiliate, "He was leaning up against where you put the bags overhead and a passenger came by and said, 'What are you going to do, some pull-ups?'"

"And the guy actually grabbed onto it and started doing some pull-ups on the plane in front of everybody."


Who was this guy? Twitter had some ideas.




The sloshed passenger became belligerent after ordering more drinks.

Flight attendants repeatedly instructed the gym rat to take a seat mid-flight, but he refused.

"He got verbally abusive with her," Markoski told the reporter.

"He started calling her names. Profanity."

Once the flight was forced to land in Kansas City, Missouri, on Monday night, local authorities boarded the aircraft and escorted the inebriated man off the plane.

Markoski noted just how out of sorts the pumped-up passenger was.

"Security came onto the plane to go get him, and he was really not understanding what was going on."


Despite others being inconvenienced by the detour, there were no consequences for the offending passenger.

Kansas City FBI told WBZ that no arrests have been made and no charges were filed.



The flight reached its final destination at Logan Airport in Boston at 1 a.m., 90 minutes after the scheduled arrival time.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
