chalk another one up for the stanford marshmallow experiment

One for the annals of delayed gratification: A Ryanair passenger won €10,000 on an in-flight lottery scratchcard. But, as you might expect, the flight attendants didn’t have the money for him right there and then. He became angry and frustrated. In the face of urgings to the contrary from the crew and other passengers, he threw a fit and ate the ticket.
