    Not exactly D&D material, but interesting nonetheless. From everything I've read and heard, everyday citizens in Pakistan are rightfully fed up with the state of their country. Here is just one example.

    A video of angry passengers on a Pakistani airline booting two officials off a plane went viral on Tuesday. Senator Rehman Malik and Dr. Ramesh Kumar, a member of the National Assembly, were off loaded from a Pakistan International Airline (PIA) bound for Islamabad from Karachi on Monday night.

    Passengers reportedly waited more than two hours on the plane before the two officials tried to board the flight. The passengers reacted furiously, accusing Malik and Kumar of delaying the flight. The plane departed without the lawmakers. The incident has stirred debate over Pakistan's so-called "VIP culture", with many praising the passengers. According to PIA, the flight was delayed due to technical difficulties.

    You see Indian politicians doing the same thing. Its some sort of idiotic entitlement complex that dates back to the British Raj. The British used to get away with stuff like this and Indian and Pakistani politicians think that apparently they've earned the right to behave like jackasses too.

    Glad to see someone is getting pissed off about it. I hope Indians do the same.
