Frightened nation

Getting ready to board

Getting ready to board

It is a traveling day today. We are on our way to be frisked by TSA, who are only there to remind us that we should always be afraid. And indeed I am afraid, of TSA. The bastards have cold hands and get really officious sounding when I tell them to back off.

Which reminds me: There is speculation around about the reason for shutting off cell service while flying. The official reason is that it might interfere with airline navigation, which is complete hogwash. The real reason is obvious, to me anyway. The regulation came about after 9/11, and most likely is there so that people could not learn for themselves that cellular communication is impossible from moving aircraft.

Have a nice day, frightened nation! The TSA today will be fingering countless ball sacks in search of box cutters.
