Unintended consequences

Imagine you're on a flight. You've read the in-flight magazine, savoured the remaining crumbs of an exquisite in-flight meal, and about to relax for a restful in-flight nap. However, you're jolted from your reverie by an announcement from the pilot saying there are problems and he's going to have to "take the pane down" (that's crash-land to you and me). As the plane takes a dive, oxygen masks make a sudden appearance from above your head and you begin to wish you'd paid more attention to the cabin crew when they were talking you through all this stuff as you were taxiing.
