A Bra's Tale

Betty Jenkins was once an adventurous young woman with a flat chest. Her mother gave her an inflatable bra to attract men. But what happens when you wear a partially-inflated bra in a plane flying over the Andes Mountains?
It turned out the cabin was not pressurized, and the bra was expanding.

"As the thing got bigger, I tried to stand up," Jenkins said, "and I couldn't see my feet."

The instructions said that the bra's pads could be inflated up to a size 48.

"I thought, 'What would happen if it goes beyond 48?'" Jenkins recalled.

Big trouble in South America, that's what. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=91943477 -via YesButNoButYes

So many surprising things...an inflatable bra, the fact that she was flying through South America back when people didn't just do that kind of thing, and the whole bomb-search angle. Neat story. :)
