    Well as you've all heard, some guy lit himself on fire on Christmas day to try take down an airplane. ZOMG, so horrible. And Mr. President is going to tell everyone how security is going to be stepped up. So, let's ramp up security, pat down every passenger, subject them to new scanners that literally show them naked. Yeah, these new measures will protect everyone. Sure, it's a major inconvenience to every passenger, will cost a sh*tload of money, but hey, how else are people going to be safe right?

    Oh, hey, I got an idea. Enforce your no-fly list. Yeah. Mr. F*cking Terrorist was on the list. You dumbf*ck morons, maybe that would have been the thing to do, huh? Nope, instead you let him board the plane, try take it down, and now you're passing the buck onto every other passenger because you f*cked up.

    Way to go. Way to f*cking go.

    Me too. But I've already used an x-ray fancy-shmancy 360° porn machine, so no surprises there. Although it'd probably make more sense to just make everyone get naked instead, amiright? Maybe someone's carrying a high-tech anti-scanner weapon of some sort.

    Still, I think they should just slap their own asses and fire everyone at that airport instead, but that would just be too easy...mmm hmm...

    Even now airport security is kind of a joke...I mean, trying to move people through as fast as possible as well as trying to be a thorough as possible don't really go hand in hand...

    The only time I've had to wait more than 5 minutes to get through airport security was just the other day in LAX where there were only two security lines going...

    My bad, it's the "terrorist watch list". So they just issue American visas for people on terrorist watch lists?

    I like the idea of these new scanners.

    Because they cannot see a tinfoil wrapped package concealed in your asshole, apart from a blank thing that can look like a shit.

    So now, in 6 months, you will be forced to undergo a cavity search before boarding.

    I can agree with what you're getting at TNO. What you're really asking for is a lot more man hours being committed, and while the work is there the pay is not.

    Plus he boarded the plane in Amsterdam. A lot of the work is just out of our hands quite honestly.

    I think the whole "you can't have an open book for the last hour of flight" is absolutely ridiculous. Well, at least Greyhound will be seeing more customers.

    ^ Fuck that, if I had money to fund that I'd also be able to buy my own private jet, thus bypassing all of these retarded security measures. I have a feeling that flying home from my parents' house will be the LAST time I fly in a long time if these measures are in place. It's almost degrading at this point

    Well, Mr. Selfish, you're obviously not the philanthropist/scientist that I am.

    But it'll be no time before we get used to this and continue grumbling about the good ol' days were people didn't try setting themselves on fire and how you could walk all the way to the gate to meet loved ones or say goodbye.

    At least most of you are caucasian, I seriously visit the glass cubicle every other trip to the airport.
