    Goes on to explain some of the Terrorists Searching Americans' overpriced and useless tech toys and what to expect. One thing jumped out at me though:
    Wonder when the last time was that this author flew.

    I'd try to set them straight (one heroic commenter, Panhead201, already has made an effort to combat the "go along to get along" (expletive deleted) the article puts forth) but I've had nothing but trouble commenting on Gizmodo, Jezebel, io9, or any other Gawker network site. Their discussion system either is flat-out broken or not fond of a Firefox environment with lots of privacy-protection and anti-advertising plugins, and I'm not too keen on the idea of using a Facebook login to post unless I have to.

    If anyone has better luck with this site, feel free to go on over and give 'em (expletive deleted).

    That's actually a pretty contemporary description -- just need to add that each of the boys will be squeezed four times.

    And it's always up to the individual smurf doing the groping. Some grope full-on, some do it half-heartedly, quickly, some use the backs of their hands only. There's no consistency. It's up to the whim of the groper.

    Add to that the fact that some people, especially men, simply don't mind. I've been told this by men more times than I can count. Are they lying? Sincere? Acting macho? Putting up a false front? I don't know. I only know what they've told me.

    This author was either the recipient of a "not that bad" grope, or he truly doesn't care.
