Nitwit News – January 27

A Kansas man cannot bear the idea of being without his favorite gaming device. When the man woke up in Olathe, Kansas, his home was on fire. He made it outside before the fire engulfed him. But then he remembered that his beloved Xbox was still inside. So, as if it were a scene from one of his favorite games, he rushed back inside to rescue his system. He found it and rushed back out of the house again. He suffered only smoke inhalation.

A guy in China figured out how to hack an airline’s first class amenities for free meals — even though he never flew. The man bought a first-class ticket and used it to have free meals and drinks at the airport’s VIP lounge almost every day for nearly a year. The itinerary for the ticket was found to have been changed more than 300 times within a year, and the owner of the ticket used it to enjoy the facilities at the airport’s VIP lounge.

In Australia (Forbes, NSW) 19-year-old Troy Jenkins said a single-engine Cessna 150 was only 10 minutes into a flight Saturday afternoon when the pilot lost consciousness. Jenkins said he had taken the controls before while flying with Neville, a family friend. Jenkins flew circles around the airport at a steady altitude of 2,000 feet for around 45 minutes before the pilot came to. Jenkins said he had landed a plane only once before and that was with pilot Derek Neville’s supervision. Jenkins was relieved that the Neville had regained consciousness moments before they were to land.
