    Protip: You can carry more than 3oz of saline solution because its for "medical purposes" or something. I read an article a few days ago where a journalist went through security many times to see what he could get away with. At one point he brought TWO full sized saline solution bottles and when the security guy asked him why he had two he responded with "one for each eye". He was let through with them.

    Wow, so I suspect my work is going to kick me out today instead of waiting the 2 weeks I gave them.

    Interesting turn of events.

    I don't get the hate for TSA employees honestly. The ones I've dealt with were way more decent to me than the typical airline employee has ever been.

    Says the white male or so I'm assuming.

    On the other hand I did shut down security at Gatwick for about 45+ minutes because the friken x-ray people can't tell the difference between a cd player+batteries+curly headphone cord and a bomb.

    Oh right I forgot, the experiences of white men are irrelevant.

    I get where you're coming from, but when the matter is "why do TSA employees have a bad reputation" then ethnicity is a factor.

    I'm sure the TSA employees are nice people in real life, but I'm really getting tired of being pulled out of line for "special treatment" every time I need to travel.

    SORRY I'M BROWN MR. TSA AGENT

Then the problem becomes, if you've searched them anyway and know they're not a threat, why not let them on the flight?

    They won't bother searching someone and just deny them entry to the security area?

    Whether or not they have access to the security area, if we're putting "does not want to be porn-scanned" into the "suspicious behaviour" category, it seems like it would be poor judgement to just let them wander around.

    Just because they've denied the pornoscanner does not give the security people permission to bodily search the person as long as they don't wish to/try to attempt to enter the security area. This is incredibly important, just as a civil rights thing.

    Refusing to be porno scanned would only ever come up in the context of trying to enter the security area. I don't understand what you're getting at here.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson
