    I was always a fan of H.E. (Holocene Era) myself. Easy to convert dates, too - just add 10,000 years.

    As complacent and docile as the general public has become, should we begin redating everything to A.F. (After Ford)?

    +1 if you get the reference.

    They're confused, since an "era" implies a duration of time, not a point in time.

    I had a TSO at at primary screening write "RSP8" (picture posted is mirrored, thank you Photo Booth) and was wondering what this acronym was supposed to signify in the TSA jargon. Anybody out there with some insight?

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner.

    Likely it's their initials "RS" and the "P8" is some place designation like "pier 8" or an employee identifier.
