Brilliant Air Traveler Invents New Way to Annoy People at 35,000 Feet

Commercial air travel has been around for a century. Legend has it that on that first flight from St. Petersburg, Florida to nearby Tampa, a passenger insisted on using both armrests and talking to the guy next to him for the entire trip.

You might think that in all that intervening time, there would be no new way to radically transform the commercial air travel experience. But you'd be wrong. Dante Ramos, a columnist with the Boston Globe, recently flew from Houston to Boston. The woman in front of him draped her ponytail over her seat and across his TV monitor. Ramos photographed her and tweeted about it.

How would you respond if this happened to you?
