;D
I remember the pilot on the long long thread also didn't have a straight forward answer when someone asked him why seatbelts are so important. He just mumbeld something about if the aircraft looses control on ground IIRC

As a single - i used to be out cold before we even took off never buckled.  It does seem so pointless and on the flights when ur holding a child so ur buckled but the child is not?! (And yes I've seen some flights where they give u another seatbelt to put around ur and and the child)
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Although B"H we generally don't get to see airplane seatbelts in action, they are quite important, and do save lives. Looks here:

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_should_you_fasten_your_seat_belt_on_an_aircraft

On a more personal note, I know someone who was on a flight where at one point the plane suddenly dropped a coupla dozen feet during turbulence... and those who hadn't listened to the instructions to fasten their seatbelts went flying straight up, and smashed their heads into the overhead bins. Most of them were okay, but some passengers were taken away on stretchers when the plane landed.
