    Anyone else notice that "cb" in "cb1111" may well stand for "castrobenes"?

    I don't think so as castrobenes has been around for quite some time. But, you never know.

    Really, even if you sign in there's nobody else listed? :eek: Poor guy! Maybe I should create a N965VJ Facebook account. :D

    Eh, I think they're just random TSA apologists. They do serve a purpose when their views are challenged, then picked up by the Google bots for anyone else doing research. ^

    Let's put my response where it belongs: Really.

    ROTFPML Where to begin? The voltages in a LCD are nowhere near the point of generating even soft x-rays. Those kick in at around 10KV (the red wire (anode) connected to the side of old CRT displays). Sitting in front of a 25 in 1990 series color TV does have soft x-rays being emitted from it. The TV was designed to limit x-ray exposure (mandated by the government).

    Sitting in the operator's chair at the carry on screening does expose the operator to x-ray radiation. They should check this once a month with a scintillation counter (very good and accurate response to low intensity radiation) to determine if the operators and traveling public are getting exposed to excessive radiation (suspect they are).

    If I wanted to find out how to abuse passengers I would talk to him otherwise, IMHO he's worthless.

    Further reading of cb111's comments tell me they are not one and the same.

    Cheers from Wayland, MO, on a sweltering 100 degree day.

    It's been 100+ here for about 14 days in a row. The trend may break tomorrow and only make it up to 99 then 100+ for the next week or so. Trying to keep the yard alive is getting tuff.

    edit to add: I said 14 days above, today will be the 18th day if we hit 100, will be close today, but the next several days are all calling for 100+ temps.

    edit edit to add: I said today was the 18th day. It was actually the 19th day in a row with 100 or higher. No relieft in sight.

    He's probably on his way to Gitmo as we speak.

    I've driven though Nebraska! Be sure to see the... uh... well at least the speed limit is like 95 MPH or something there. :confused:

    Box, it seems that another crew has told people they need to stay in their seats the last 90 minutes into DCA. Why would they say something dumb like this? Your Moment Of Zen. :D

    Good evening Box from an undisclosed hotel room. I'm kicking back with a couple of bottles of good pilsner from home, retrieved from my rollaboard. They've been icing down while I was in the shower. :cool:

    How did I get them past the TSA's War On Liquids? This trip does not involve commercial air travel. I've kept my shoes on, no blue gloves, etc. Life, at this present moment, is good. :D^
