The experience of flying in American airports has been getting worse and worse for years.

Seats are getting smaller, formerly free amenities are being charged for, the TSA is getting more and more intrusive, and if you’re really unlucky, you might get physically hauled off your flight and wind up in the hospital if the airline overbooked it.

Let’s face it: It was only a matter of time before somebody had enough. In fact, we’re a little surprised it’s taken this long.

Earlier this week, a woman was arrested at Memphis International Airport after going on a rampage over a $20 baggage fee. In the space of five minutes, she caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage, turning over furniture and setting off a fire extinguisher that filled the airport with a chemical fog.

While we have sympathy for the other airport passengers, whose already miserable days were likely not improved by witnessing this tantrum, we also found watching the video of the rampage to be sort of cathartic. Who among us, “us” in this case being people who have flown within the U.S. in the past five or so years, doesn’t yearn, deep down, to let loose on some of these nickel-and-diming airlines?

We are not, of course, condoning doing any such thing, if for no other reason than that it’ll land you in jail with bail set in the thousands. Also, people like us will make fun of you on the internet.

Get in the fast lane, Grandma, this bingo game is ready to roll!

A $2,000 Christmas Slots Tournament starts Friday at Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes Casino and continues through the Christmas break. It features the holiday classic Christmas Carol slot and three more of the casino’s most popular slot games from Betsoft. Sixteen players will win $2,000 in prizes.

The Christmas Slots Tournament, 21-28 December, features four Betsoft slots: A Christmas Carol, Ogre Empire, Charms & Clovers and Giovanni’s Gems.

“When you grab a little slots time over the Christmas holiday,” encourages Intertops Poker’s casino manager, “Play the tournament games so you can pick up some extra prize money!”

Players will automatically earn points when they play the featured tournament games. The sixteen players with the most points at the end of the tournament (28 December) will split $2,000 in prize money. The first-place player wins $400. (Prizes must be rolled over at least once in order to be withdrawn.)

In the Christmas Carol slot game, players find themselves in the bedroom of Ebenezer Scrooge, watching the classic Christmas tale unfold.

Ogre Empire sweeps players away into a mystical world where they fight the Ogre, free the villagers and test their fate, winning opportunities to instantly double their winnings.

Charms & Clovers brings an ancient Irish myth to life, taking players on a search for that fabled pot of gold. This 40-payline progressive video slot has everything from four-leaf clovers and pots of gold to horseshoes. Its innovative sixth reel controls four distinct bonus features.
