    Wish I had Blogdad Boobies telephone number so I could call and wish him a happy day.:rolleyes:

    edit to add: wondering if happy hour will extend until tomorrow?

  2. Somebody needs to reply to the first comment over there, it doesn't make any sense. I don't understand the scanners well enough to refute his claim about the scanners somehow taking a side shot while you're facing forward. :confused:

    That's one of my nicer letters. I've forgone niceties with them due to their inability to respond appropriately from the start. I almost get the feeling that my representatives are baboons playing bongos in their offices. Meanwhile they let their interns, who have no comprehension of the situation this country is in, nor have risked anything to support or defend this country, rubber stamp replies, sometimes not even pertaining to the subject at hand.

    In my correspondence to one of my reps re: Jon's video, I put in a sentence, all upper case, telling him to NOT send me his standard response as I've received it several times.

    I just measured the volume of the container as exactly 50.0 mL, so 2.5x the minimum purported dangerous amount.

    We can already bring in multiple 100ml containers. Wish there was a way to test a larger target but you certainly can't do it. Will probably find yourself on the no fly list.

    I'm actually really tempted to try again next time I fly, which is soon, with a 250 mL flask.

    You can bring in multiple 100 mL containers, but they get screened... my 50 mL container did not (or should I say, did not get effectively screened, as I did "go through screening").

    Jon, I would give it a pass. If TSA has the slightest chance to mess with you I have little doubt they will.

    Hire someone else to do it.

    That sounds like it could hold a RATHER BIG BOOM, not a REALLY BIG BOOM, but definitely more threatening (especially undetected by all 20 layers) than something that merely goes BOOM.

    Good writeup in Jaunted ...

    Anecdotal reports in the field indicate everyone is getting a post-scan grope.

    Keep up the good work TSA! You are your own worst enemy!

    If true seems to support Jon's testing.

    I'm not sure which comment you're referencing.

    Are you talking about TomRussell?

    He's just flat-out wrong. That's not even close to how this procedure works.

    Honestly, where do people get this stuff?

    Anyhoo, he's already been chastised twice about his blatantly incorrect information.

    Meaning, they can't see the sides as we've all said all along, and so now TSA's worthless machines are causing more hassle?

    And again, I'm going to bring up the obvious that the idiots at TSA can't comprehend.

    What does a grope prove? Nothing.

    We are told these machines are necessary to detect non-metallic threats, such as well, things that go BOOM!

    Which is why we can't use WTMD any more, which is why we have to be electronically strip searched to enter an airport.

    And yet, if an anomaly is detected, or better yet because of this video one isn't and now everyone also gets a rubbing, how do they know they might have an explosive? They don't. I've watched literally hundreds of post-scan gropes in the last year. They rub, they wish someone a "nice flight", and send them on their way. Nothing has ever been further examined following discovery from a post-scan grope. Ever from what I've seen. Even if someone was flagged for a groping, they'd still miss the apparent threat because they are too stupid to find it.

    I'm not religious, but I'm praying this is the TSA's response. Oh please let it be so!

    That would seem to indicate that Jon was right! :D

    Except there are a lot of stupid people out there.

    Comments on his blog (and elsewhere) run along the lines of:

    "This couldn't have happened after they scan you front and back, you turn sideways to scan your profile!"

    Are people seriously this stupid?

    I imagine most of those people going through have no idea, and if they knew would think, "Whew! I sure am glad they're doing something to keep us safe!" Completely ignorant of the fact that TSA created the problem in the first place.

    Hmmm . . . Do you really want us to answer that?
