    It was a hot mess — so much so that when the pilot of an international flight spilled a cup of coffee on the cockpit controls midway over the Atlantic Ocean, it melted one of the buttons and the plane was diverted to Ireland, an investigation concluded Thursday.

    No one was injured in the incident Feb. 6 aboard the Condor airlines flight carrying 337 people from Frankfurt, Germany, to Cancún, Mexico.

    The coffee was on a tray table in the cockpit when the pilot accidentally knocked it over.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    The movie; Fate Is The Hunter deals with an investigation which discovers spilled-coffee in the cockpit caused a crash. It's kind of interesting to see how they meticulously nailed-down the findings.

    My car has cupholders, like all cars made after 1990. Plane manufacturers can't do this for the pilots?
