The Stupidest Travelers of 2010

The year 2010 was a strange one in the world of travel, what with volcanoes closing down airports in Europe, UFOs closing down airports in China, and even honey jars closing down the airport in Bakersfield, California (the head-scratching airport security staff thought they were liquid explosives). But perhaps the stupidest airport shutdown was in Newark, New Jersey, when a Rutgers student slipped under a security rope to give his departing girlfriend one last kiss goodbye. Rappers, congressmen, Hollywood brats, Qatari diplomats and even crocodiles brought mayhem to the skies of the world in 2010. And don't even get us started on what Kim Kardashian did to the guy sitting next to her on one flight.
