One in-flight gin and tonic later, Lamenda mentioned how excited she was to see the Alhambra to a fellow passenger, who responded "Not on this flight you won't." And that was the moment when Lamenda Kingdon found out she was on her way to Grenada in the Caribbean, not Granada in Europe. But don't feel too bad for Kingdon. She got off in St. Lucia, spent six hours in the airport's executive lounge, flew back home, and got on a plane to Granada the next day. But wouldn't it have been funny if she had ended up in a grenade factory instead?
Israel Tweets the Anniversary of the Yom Kippur War; Investors Miss the "Anniversary" Part
On the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, also known as the October War for people who are baffled silly by un-English words, the Israeli Defense Forces decided to commemorate it by sending out this tweet:
"Shit, the Soviets are back?!"
Notice the hashtag #YomKippur73. It's kind of important, because without it, the tweet just reads "Israeli Air Force bombards airports in Syria to prevent Soviet weapons reaching the Syrian Army." So a news-weary reader could interpret this as an attack happening now. You know who's quick to the draw when they see the words "bomb" and "Syria"? Oil investors, that's who. Before the rumor police pulled up and shut the buying frenzy down, oil was up a dollar, all because investors missed #YomKippur73.
