This video was made by Elijah's mother, Kia McClain. In her own words:
Sorry I completely lost it while attempting to ask my son the question. I was LITERALLY crying I was laughing so hard!! Note, my son is ONLY IN 5th grade and Romney is running for president.... The funniest thing is that he actually thought he was dumb for not remembering who Romney was, like oh DUH off tape.I like the way she posted the video under the category of "Comedy". Although, one could also view it as a tragedy since the man who asks the idiotic question is running for the highest office in the land.
So, Mitt, please follow us below the fleur-de-kos and allow this fifth grader to explain why windows don't open on airplanes.
ON EDIT: Rec list! Wow! Thanks, Elijah and Kia!
Also, here's some good advice for everyone:
If you're sucked out of an open airplane window, just go to the emergency room. tweet
