    Beating TSA at Airports

    The Germany way to beat TSA at their own game. I don't thlink that this will be offensive to anyone, especially if they have flown lately.

    Great. Give the TSA ideas.

    Luckily flying is not something I do often.

    As you all know, I fly somewhat often I have gone through these scanners in several airports and if the poor TSA agent (yes, I know that sounds strange) gets to see my junk, well, that's his problem While a lot of people like to take their anger out at the TSA officers, keep in mind they are just doing what they are ordered to do. I doubt any of them want to feel up the vast majority of travellers here in the US...

    While you're waiting in line for the backscatter machine, start thinking sexy thoughts and go through the machine with a full on chub. Hell, even half a chub would be funny.

    That's a well worn bad road many have gone down throughout human history. Let's not take that path. It belittles those who carry out orders they support.

    I don't mind the scanners really, I mean I'm not thrilled with the whole idea but I think the scanners are the better way to go. I really don't like to be touched by people I don't know so I think the pat search would really be more offensive to me. But we have decided that if we travel in the near future it will be by car rather than plane. It might take longer but at least you can see more of the country.

    Simple to accomplish. Just concentrate on that HOT, young thing in front of you in line. Should work every time.

    Do NOT look at that fugly fat one behind you though. Would "deflate" the moment. (Plus you may go blind.)

    Yes and no.

    It's definitely valid to remember that the TSA screener is just doing their job, just like any of us hooking someone or writing a ticket. I bet I'm not the only one who's been put on a bullshit zero tolerance traffic detail, for example.

    But that doesn't justify unthinking obedience and action, especially when you start looking at immoral acts. Right now -- I wouldn't classify conducting the TSA security screen as immoral. Borderline unconstitutional? Maybe. But not immoral or evil.

    How do you end up behind the hot young thing? It's guaran-damn-teed that if I'm in a situation like that... I'm behind Rosie O'Donnell and Conchata Ferrell is behind me. If it's not a Danny Devito look alike...

    Oh trust me, we see both types here.
    Yesterday afternoon there was a debubbly, awesomely HOT young lady flying out and she was one that I would absotootely leave my wife for. (Oh, wait, I ALREADY left my wife.)

    She was bending over her luggage adjusting something or other - - and I just HAPPENED to be standing nearby - - AND she HAPPENED to be facing me - - AND she was wearing an extremely LOW CUT . . . . DAYUM she was hot!!!

    But then this morning there were two others that without a doubt, needed "WIDE LOAD" signs on their azzes.

    Why does "The good, the bad, and the FUGLY" come to mind?

    While I agree that "just following orders" is not a valid defense to Americans, the poster of that comment hails from another country where intrusion is viewed differently.

    I also agree with JKS - they aren't nazis.

    That said, one can choose to work somewhere or not based upon what one is asked to do for a dollar.
