    I'm ready to go to the airport. Sounds like more excitement than any of my last couple dates.

    I suggest you wear white pants and spill some warm tea or coffee on your goin just before they pat you down.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    i was thinking of letting my girl get me nice and erect in the line then going through the pat down while wearing tight pants with boxers, and say something like "my flight is round trip if you wanna get together sometime"

    See, this is where the new health care system comes in. Free rectal exams for all, available at the airport!

    Back to the original topic, I think both parties are harrassing the other. Maybe they should mutually agree to stop it.

    I am fully prepared to be a wise guy if I get asked to have a highly invasive search.

    I'm thinking like workshopping a few phrases:
    - "You missed a bit"
    - "So, big boy, can you give me your number?"
    - "When am I supposed to cough?"
    - "Keep going, I'm about to jizz in my pants"

    Any other suggestions?

    For some people, I think the TSA screening is the most action they have gotten or will ever get for a while, so why are so many people complaining?

    My wife hadn't seen or heard of the TSA stuff at all, so last night on the news when they showed a screener rubbing between a woman's breasts, my wife freaked out and puked. For real. (In her defense, she is pregnant, so it's easy to get her to puke, but she was uneasy and twitchy the rest of the night just watching someone else get a breast exam...I mean screened by the TSA.)

    It would be interesting if she puked on the TSA agent while she was being screened. I wonder what they would do then?

    Boss just flew Dallas to NYC and back. No body scans, no pat downs, nada. Said he could tell no difference. Much ado about nothing me thinks. Aslo, if it keeps me and my family safe, they can grope me a bit, as long as they are polite and promise to call or write. Wonder if the same people screaming that their constitional rights (guffaw) are being violated will scream just as loud if a plane blows up mid flight.

    But they'll be sure to take naked pictures of you and your family, just to make sure you feel humiliated and know who's in charge.

    And your wife? Just because "hey look, a lady!"? Maybe strip search your kids? And what's at the bottom of this particular slippery slope?

    Heck, even the xray screeners are beyond useless. When I travel, I typically carry my laptop bag stuffed full of crap. Including a swiss army knife with all of the tools I find useful, and a 4+ inch blade. I can't even begin to count the number of times I inadvertently left it in the bag and it sailed right through screening.

    Of course that doesn't even compare to Adam Savage's recent report of going through "security", including a full-body scan, while the TSA idgits completely missed a pair of 12" blades in his coat.

    But don't worry, there are all of those terrorists that the TSA have stopped since 9/11... oh, wait, that would be... ZERO.

    Seriously, they would probably charge her with assault.

    Enter the security line and tell the screener "hey baby, wanna wrestle?".

    What I would like to know is
    a) who they think they're fooling (I'm with x on this one) and
    b) if the attrition rate of screeners is going up daily because of this.

    I think if we get too far into a, this thread will be p&r'ed faster than you can say "unreasonable search and seizure", and I don't have p&r permissions.

    Of course, it's not going to stop us from flying to Scranton for Christmas... but that weekend trip to LA in January might switch to a drive. We'll see.

    Anybody who voted for a certain grammar-averse former president of ours really shouldn't be whining about this. At all.
