    "Wrapping oneself in plastic while flying over a cemetary"? This kind of behavior no longer is divine worship, but rather superstition and here lies a big danger, for Judaism forbids superstitious practices. G-D never banned common sense, so stop acting crazy and thus shaming G-D! - As for raving in the plane bc a film was shown? The Torah commands us to take other people into consideration like here: other passengers, who 'd have appreciated the film. With a little flexibility and consideration for other people's needs and respecting authorities, rather than insisting that everybody else has to follow our unbending will, we show our respect to G-D. Bear in mind that G-D gave men "free will", which is the greatest expression of His love for man, This His love we 'ld mimick in all our actions and hence respect other people's wills too like G-D does, without interfering in them and in the choices they make for themselves. G-D is no tyrant, so why are you?
