    Also their behavior meant my sympathy for his dysentary wasn't genuine.

    Everyone is bitching about the x-ray scanners and how if you refuse you might get groped by a TSA agent, so on November 24 they want anyone flying to opt out of the scanner and get a patdown in full public.

    Bonus points for winking and blowing a kiss at the TSA goons after they've gone to second base on you.

    I like the soundbyte where the TSA guy says what the procedure is, and they dude listens politely, and then says.. "okay but if you touch my junk I'm calling the police..." so they pull a supervisor out and I think the guy misses his flight, not sure about the last part though.

    actually, the guy got his money back from American Airlines... and it was his father-in-law's money unless I'm misreading something.

    Whats the situation Tav?

    Two of my friends from different social circles are really into eachother, but they're both socially retarded with the opposite sex so they won't just go and ask eachother out or go hang out like normal people. A friend of mine who I've not seen in a while arranged a night out for tomorrow, but also decided to be match maker and have these two hang out tomorrow.

    Basically, it'll be me, Cupid and the two socially retarded idiots having drinks and playing pool till I can come up with a good enough excuse to bail.

    You and Cupid should hang out with them for like 5 minutes, and then at the same time go "Well you two enjoy your date" and both leave.

    Cupid wants to play chaperone. He really doesn't want to leave...

    Explain to cupid that if he wants to stay, you two will have to make out, hard. This will prevent any awkwardness.

    it's not like most of them enjoy it, man, there's no need to make it hard on them

    I'm totally making it hard for them when they're groping my balls.

    A pat down search that excludes the groin (and for women, chest) is fucking pointless.

    Surely the terrorists will never figure out that's the place to hide their shit.

    How much PETN could a potential terrorist hide inside his body? Enough to make this an obvious exercise in bullshit security theater?

    You know if someone wants to shove a few fistfuls of explosives up their ass and turn themselves into a human pinata, they win.

    But it shouldn't be as easy as just filling your jockstrap with it and refusing to go through the scanner.

    sup

    not much. slacking at work, hanging in [chat], waiting for monday night football. how's things with you?

    Can't complain. Just got done with my 4 day weekend so even though I'm back to work at least I got some fun in. Also half of my job is browsing the forums anyway.

    And yeah, anytime I see someone that I recognize from elsewhere on the forums (in this case Phallas) post in [chat] I have to say sup. Pull up a seat, stay a while, etc.


    Eh, I pop up in [chat] now and then, just usually too busy during the day to keep up with the pace so I mostly lurk. Haven't yet figured out how to successfully [chat] in moderation, it's either all or nothing.

    Or 'liquid explosives' that were foiled by actual old-fashioned investigative policing and not any of these TSA measures. How many people would have to be complicit in combining their 3 oz containers to breach the cabin?

    Exactly what obnoxious qualities are we speaking of here

    Cooking for one. She was awful at it, yet always cooking the worst possible food combinations (oh here's some canned chilli, mac and cheese and throw in some salmon yeah thats yeah horrific). Then she'd not clean up the dishes she created, so there would be food reside rotting in the sink until I cleaned them up.

    She took really long showers, which wouldn't be a problem except I worked 40 hour weeks, so if I wanted to take a shower it was get it done right away or suffer the wrath of waiting forever for her to be done.

    She smoked all the time, in the unit, outside the unit. Basically if she could smoke, she was smoking.

    She would invite herself to sit down and watch whatever I was watching, not normally a bad thing, I don't mind sharing media with someone, but we only had limited furniture so I had to sit close while she smoked. And she'd not shut up about her opinions on things, so it was like watching a movie with a smoking version of my mother.

    In the EU they are very keen on the idea of refusing to let anyone that refuses to go through the porn scanner on to their flight, and providing no option to be searched instead.

    Which is a bit odd, because I don't seriously believe that they won't search someone that refuses to go through the scanner, given that they're treating that refusal as suspicious. Then the problem becomes, if you've searched them anyway and know they're not a threat, why not let them on the flight?

    Hakke, the best advice I can give you is make sure you're not messing with your boyfriend's roommatess routine. Don't make him wait for a shower or whatever.

    If you aren't messing up his day to day life he should be cool.

    Heard a pretty interesting bit about the pornscanner (x-ray version) and the chance for cancer. Apparently if you do the math, the expected increase in cancer cases among fliers should about equal the people injured in terrorist attacks. Not to mention the time of your life spent waiting for the whole scene.

    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.
