You gotta believe. Unfortunately, the control tower "believes" you can sit for another 8 hours.
Forget about 127 Hours. If you want a story about the indomitability of the human spirit, look no further than this June 9th Allegiant airline flight (that's an airline?) from Vegas to Phoenix. According to the Youtube description, after five hours of waiting on the runway with no water provided and no air conditioning, the passengers sought solace in the soothing tones of R. Kelly and broke out into this sing-along "to avoid a mutiny." Keep in mind, this joyous moment occurred after two people reportedly passed out, and two others vomited.
So, maybe this speaks more to the indomitable sprit of R. Kelly. Had they tried singing "Ignition (Remix)," we bet they could have actually powered the engines and taken off.
