    I guess I'll also post this in its own thread, but since so many people are reading this one -- Chris Elliott is talking to the TSA and Jon and will be doing a column on this whole brouhaha. Anybody have anything to add?

    At this stage, I simply presume that anyone currently accepting a paycheck from the TSA had no soul to sell in the first place.

  7. I was perusing the Slashdot comments on their post about Jon's video and discovered an interesting one:

    ETA: I added the link to the Slashdot post. Also, I thought it was the hip thing not to capitalize "slashdot"? Maybe not.

    Uh.... posted where?
     
  11. I suspect, also, their smart biometric scanner didn't bother to detect a joint in somebody's pocket.

  12. Look up, just above barbell's post...

    ETA: It's a comment from slashdot, if that's what you mean.

  20. Can you add a little context to link what you're saying here to the Slashdot comment? Like, is this necessarily the vendor he was talking about? That guy made sound like it was more about explosives detection and such. I really know almost nothing about these things.
