Why do I always find this shit two days after the fact?

Ok, TSA? Time to stop the scanner bullshit. Seriously. It was bad enough that they just invade your privacy. Now they invade your privacy and the images are posted on the goddamned internet. Way to go, America. Way to rip another shred of our human decency away in order to provide us security that isn't actually real.

Accidents stopped the shoe bomber, the liquid bomber, the goddamn underwear bomber from blowing their bombs. If the next guy is on the ball, we have a serious problem.

And there isn't much we can do about it.

More when I'm not raging.


  1. Going strong here, bro. But I've got to say: don't you want to be safe when you're flying from place to place?

  2. That's not even the point, Nick. First of all, I don't fly, largely because of the increased crap people are being put through just to get on a plane. Second of all, I've been reading up. Israel does excellent work with their airport security, and it's much faster and much less invasive than the Western ideal. Why can't we live up to that?

  3. Well, if you don't fly, why are you trying to tell those who do that they can't be safe.

    ...look, I'm up very late. I need to be asleep, or I'll be sleeping on the couch instead of in bed. I'll catch up with you tomorrow afternoon sometime.

  4. I'm gonna have to side with Nick here, dude. There may be better ways to be safe, but for now, we should just go with what's available.

  5. Heey man. I'm not s ure where you are or if you're getting this, but Merry Christmas.
