    I've seen reference to M-80 type fireworks several times recently. M-80's have been outlawed for years so what is the source for these items?

    The failed to emphasize that the "explosive" materials were found in his backpack, not in his undershorts, thus no need for a NoS in this situation either. Go figure. :rolleyes:

    yeah, but you have to ask, "is this the best they can do?" This won't even get noticed in comparison to a flesh peddling TSM

    Actually TSA seems to have completed its most basic tasking by finding an explosive powder. I see no reason that doing so should get a mention anywhere. I certainly don't get articles written just because I did my job.

    And again the extremely expensive and defective Whole Body Strip Search Machines played no role in the find.

    You would probably get some articles written if society generally considered that achievement to be a major miracle.

    Well, Blogger Boob has gone and done it again. At 3:26 he put up a thread at PV about this and at 3:39 along came the first comment, and by gosh, it was a favorable comment:

    You wouldn't suppose that this was written by someone else at TSA HQ, would you?

    Perhaps, that way Boobie can deny doing himself.

    Can you imagine what our world would be like if McD's issued a press release every single time one of their employees managed to correctly assemble a Big Mac?

    If they had TSA quality employees press releases would be few and far between.

    (Then again, that hasn't stopped the TSA.)

    The x-ray belt, it's always the x-ray belt.

    Which he did:

    Perhaps he has a guilty conscience.....

    I do not doubt that Bob doesn't do his own sock-puppetry. It's very likely that it's just the drone in the next cubicle over.

    Besides - look at the time stamps. I don't think Bob can type that fast, nor anyone else in the TSA. Mostly because if they had skills at typing, they'd have real jobs.

    I wish you would not refer to Bob as a "Boobie." Boobies serve several very useful purposes:
    1. They provide nourishment for human offspring.
    2. They act as a sexual stimulant to the male of the species.
    3. They are "erogenous" zones, enhancing the pleasurable experience of the female of the species (if handled appropriately by the male of the species :D)

    Bob, as far as I can tell, serves no useful purpose.

    Perhaps it could be agreed that if the spelling were changed to Booby, as in an "ignorant or stupid person", it would be more acceptable.

    I think you are confusing the slang definition of the word with the formal definition.

    IMHO, it is more likely that he has no conscience...kind of like the TSOs who prostitute themselves as same-sex gropers in exchange for a government paycheck. :rolleyes:
