I know, I can't believe I'm still taking a flight tomorrow. Time to play "let's strip search the goth girl". Yay.

And I'm sure you've probably already seen this, but lolz: http://craphound.com/images/liquids-on-a-plane.jpg

Hehe! I've seen similar, but not that one! ;)

And good luck tomorrow! I'm sure the flight will be fine once you're done with the metric assload of preliminary bullshit.

Dye your pubic hair some very intense and artificial color. No undies. Dildo in thigh sheath. Wear under conservative business suit.

Everybody going on airplanes should carry vials of semen or menstrual blood with them.

Oy, just wait'll some terrorist decides to sneak anally inserted explosives onto planes. Soon we're all gonna be well acquainted with the nice man with the rubber glove.

Michael Jackson?

Oh, wait... MJ's the one with the STUDDED glove. Never mind.

PS: studded glove? ouch....

Oh God, I'll never fly again...

It's even better than that. Wait until someone makes an explosive you can drink/eat. "All passengers will have to stay overnight at the airport before your flight, and you will all have to go to the bathroom, escorted, before we'll let you on the plane. And don't forget the permission slips signed by your mommies and daddies."

In 2001 over 90% of murders committed in New York City and Arlington, VA, and probably 100% of murders in Shanksville, PA were carried out using planes. Ban flying!

Also, fun fact, men can carry something like six pounds of C-4 anally. Women can carry something like eight, although they have to, ah, split it. I'm sure you wanted to know THAT.

That's kinda why I don't understand the "you can bring formula if you taste-test it first" thing. I mean, if you're about to board the plane with the intention of blowing it up and killing all aboard, including yourself, then you don't really give a rat's ass if you poison yourself beforehand, now do you?

Haha! Brings new meaning to the phrase "don't shit a brick," doesn't it?

Now look here, the TSA is doing all of this for YOUR SAFETY. Just because cars account for so exponentially many more deaths than planes every year does not mean that air travel is safe or anything.

I learned from Day of the Jackal that if you swallow c-4 you turn grey and sweaty. That was from a small piece though, I think six pounds would probably just kill you pretty dead.

It would be nice if long-distance passenger train service experienced a renaissance from this nonsense. I doubt that'll happen though, unless they a) renovated the tracks, b) bought a few bullet trains, and c) scheduled it so the passenger trains don't have to worry about the freight trains taking precedence and slowing them down.

Yes, it's reactive, and it's as much for show as for security, but it's still necessary. Nobody would fly if they didn't see that there were measures in place.

I'm trying not to get all ranty about the subject. Shutting up now.
