    Would you? When I was looking for an overseas ISP to host some of this stuff, I had to weed out a lot of obviously American companies. They just get European domain names & pretend to be one of them, but they're not.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled discussion of Jon's video, the demise of the Nude-O-Scopes, and dissolution of TSA itself.

    Question for Jon:

    This blog post from the Economist describes a "purportedly dangerous amount" of PETN as 1 cm. x 4 cm. x 5 cm.

    Would this amount of something that goes BOOM fit inside your container? How much room to spare?

    If you have a metric graduated cylinder, how much water will it hold? Every 20 cc. = 1X the above quantity of PETN.

    I now recall reading about the ease of concealing thin wires and think this paper was circulating in late 2010 or early 2011.

    The last one posted yesterday is time-stamped 2:03pm. They must be swimming in comments that they can't post fast enough. Or something.

    They are, however, suppressing comments. ;)

    Perhaps it's my computer, but I can no longer take a complete screen shot of a comment prior to posting it.

    Further, I cannot get to what must be a second page of comments - what I am seeing certainly is NOT 272 comments (the top of the page indicates there are 200 posted comments).

    Rumor has it that Blogger Bob, normally quite a hero in the anvils of his mind, is temporarily indisposed.​

    It goes to show how out of control the agency is.

    They are so embarrassed by this story, they just want it to go away.

    Unfortunately, they have proven, once again, their inability to handle a critical situation, and have made it worse.

    Good job, TSA! You are the best enemy any of us could've ever hoped for! ^

    I agree, but I also expect to see a fabricated threat by DHS/TSA as a diversion to Jon's revelations in the very near future.

    No. What they'll do is send some patsy through with something on his side and "catch" him.

    They'll make a really big deal out of it.

    Fortunately for freedom loving Americans, it will take some time because TSA employees are just too stupid to be counted on to catch the guy.

    In the meantime we can also get some response videos made to refute those claims once they become public.

    That story will explode (pardon the pun), because it will immediately and absolutely catch TSA in a lie.

    Fabricated threat aka diversion - same thing.

    Yep. Already happening. This story is everywhere:

    Wow - worse than a cheesy soap opera! These dimwits are so predictable.
