Something Special In The Air

Truth truly is stranger than fiction:

Flatulence brought 99 passengers on an American Airlines flight to an unscheduled visit to Nashville early Monday morning.

American Flight 1053, from Washington Reagan National Airport and bound for Dallas/Fort Worth, made an emergency landing here after passengers reported smelling struck matches, said Lynne Lowrance, a spokeswoman for the Nashville International Airport Authority. . .

The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal body odor, Lowrance said. The woman lives near Dallas and has a medical condition.

I feel bad for the woman for having a medical condition which causes body odor.  Really, I do.  But tell me, just how stupid do you have to be to light matches on a plane?  And where did she get the matches?  She must be a smoker.
