They will target cruise ships and cargo vessels next.


We already had that scare, when I was living up in London there were many people in the media gearing up for the main threat being one of these fast private jet things like a Lear jet or a Cesna citation X on approach to one of the big london airports - it was supposed to be loaded up with a nuke or something and would approach as normal till just the right moment where it would go low and hard, presumably up the Thames river into the heart of London and detonate - in doing that they would be on target well before any fighter jets could turn up. - That one never really wen't anywhere tho, probably due to the fact those planes are blooming expensive and you really have no hope of flying one unless your a professional - oh wait lol.

But it's OK cos they pat every body down now

I'm not urging everyone to do this, but if you are so inclined and you'd like to vent, leave a complaint for the TSA here. Might as well voice your opinion to them personally while your at it. When I see new articles and videos, I have sent them with my opinion. It may go right into their garbage bin, but hey it makes me feel better and it could be quite effective.

That sounds like a great idea.

I would also suggest not bathing or anything for a few days as well, but that is sort of disgusting.

I've seen people suggesting the no bathing idea... but then I think about the poor folks forced to sit next to those choosing the odiferous route. Seems like punishing your neighboor for something they had no hand in doing. After all, it's likely they're just as fed up with the TSA as you are.

As a christian lady I only wear skirts and dresses.
When a muslim woman has to pull up her burka,
Then I will pull up my skirt.Until then,I request to
be inspected around my face and neck only as well!

Maybe if all flyers stopped bathing.

Though I agree it is disgusting and all, that is why I actually did not suggest it just mentioned it.

You know, I've just been waiting to see how long it was until a celeb got it. Is it sad that a part of me hopes a few celebs get treated in a way that makes them start speaking out against the patdowns and the TSA? I hate to say it, but that may well be the fastest way to wake up the sheeple, after all many of them are entirely celebrity driven, it would be guaranteed to be splashed all over the MSM!


Ok, can't resist posting this: George Clooney wants airport scanner proof underwear AND I've found him an option: Inventor fights agains TSA scanners with new underwear...

Let's go the whole hog, all you need is to not bath, get your self infested with ticks fleas and genital crabs and have some oozing open crusty sores... Oh bad breath a stash of very seedy porn related items in your carry on, wear a trench coat, make sure your flies don't do up properly, actually some suspicios stained clothing is a good idea. Have a bag of sweets and offer them to every one, watch everyones mouth intently as the speak... Have a flop sweat side parting and flakey scalp... errrm I should have more... oh yhea sweaty palms and shake hands for too long and garlic breath.

Oh yhea, enquire about the avability of the lower end of sex workers at your destinatation... So yhea, that's pretty much how I roll

A point to make about the Hijab...

Covering one's hair is not restricted to Muslim women and has been a part of Jewish and Christian religions as well. Any woman who wishes to wear a "covering" can do so WITHOUT feeling the need to claim they are Muslim. The covering is done for essentially the same reason - modesty.

If it applies to one, it applies to ALL

Taking a carryon of sex toys and paraphernalia would be funny.

Hand them your bag that has several toys turned on. Ask them if they can help you store your baggage.

I am going to stop there, it could go to dark places rather quickly if not.

Perhaps I should have titled the thread 'Suggestion to all skirt wearers: Do not wear a skirt to the airport?"

I assure you, it was in no way meant to be sexist or offensive to anyone! I generally don't see males wearing skirts at the airport, but I may just not be on the right flights!

A bag full of sex toys,now that's a good one.
You would probably be accused of transporting
possible bomb making materials in your carry on.
I won't go any further than this.

Bad enough that if you stick one in your checked bags you always get the notification paper inside afterwards that the TSA has checked your bags.

ETA: I seem to recall a story from some years back, pre-9/11 where a flight attendant had packed a vibrator in her luggage and forgotten to take the batteries out first. It started buzzing and you can guess where that led? Bomb squads. area evacuations etc. I wish I could remember how long ago that was now.

Okay, right on!
Just wanted to make certain! I'm not here to intentionally offend anyone, and I know it can sometimes happen. With how intense the debates have been getting over the TSA, it's nice to have a little levity!

Skirt wearers UNITE!

We should all unite and get some skunk perfume or something! Then, we could wear medical masks like the ones people used during the SARS outbreak, so that we didn't have to smell our own stench, but all the airline staff do. Not bathing isn't sanitary, and I wouldn't want to do that, but some sort of harmless artificial stench would be lots of fun! And those masks work really well, if you get the right ones; I was fitted for some when I worked at a hospital, and they tested them by using this horrible reeking spray; if you couldn't smell it at all, then the mask was a good fit :p I think Gandhi would have approved of such a path of passive resistance, at least

That sounds harmless enough and you get to see the look on their face when they discover the speed switch doesn't turn some of them off. I doubt it would take the TSA long to remove the batteries and repack your toys for you though. Very strict code of conduct followed by TSO.
