    We deserve what we (expletive deleted) get. This hysteria and paranoia -- If You See Something, Say Something! -- is off the charts.

    (and I say "we" only in the sense of the country as a whole -- I know you all aren't perpetuating this garbage, and I'm sure as (expletive deleted) not, but "we" are in this together)

    Insanity is what it is, complete panic and fear. Everything the terrorists wanted, and they are getting in surplus. What an (expletive deleted) country, huh?!

    :rolleyes:

    Phrases like that, "Post 9/11 World", "Better Safe Than Sorry", etc. really need their own sound effect when they are read.

    The fear knob has been turned up to 11,

    As for sound effects, I'm thinking the bankruptcy sound from Wheel of Fortune should be played after every porno scanning, groping, or area shutdown from a misplaced VHS tape or boxed lunch. That sound perfectly captures the essence of what Comrade Chertoff and the fear cartel are doing to our childrens' future.

    I really hope they never find a water bottle with wires sticking out. That's so dangerous they might have to shut down half the county.

    No mention about the cost and inconvenience to the airline and passengers. This is third dump in the past two weeks.

    TSA antics are always accompanied by this in my head.

    That's the music that's played when a hottie is directed into the Nude-O-Scope for the benefit of his buddy sitting in the viewing booth. :eek::rolleyes:

    So what happens if a group of "diligent' frequent fliers notices "suspicious activity" on one or two flights from every major airport each day? This would quickly paralyze the airline industry but is consistent with Nappy's "See something" idea.

    That's clearly what Nappy and Pissy want. So let 'em have it.

    Has anyone seen or heard anything about exactly what the concern was about these guys?

    So they didn't aget assigned seats until it was too late? Maybe both just rebooked or standby for some reason?

    I don't know how many times my wife & I have walked onto a plane together & sat apart for whatever reason -- why would two guys be expected to sit together? Would the whiner feel more secure if they were holding hands? :rolleyes:

    So tracksuits are the new uniform for tewwowists? :confused: I thought it was hooded sweatshirts that made Little Johny PeePants start crying. It's a good thing Al Sharpton has upgraded his wardrobe. :p
