Oh, noes! I hope she isn't moving to TEXAS!?!
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? Poor guy! Maybe I should create a N965VJ Facebook account.
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.
I meant to post this earlier
And now Your Moment of Zen;
The same guy who says we should trust him that the Nude-O-Scopes are safe just because he says so, also believes modern TV and computer screens give off radiation.
OH, good heavens - he has one friend now! BTW, he's been on FB since January 23 and his interests are Women.
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.
Likes women? Bet that they don't like him much.
I was wondering the same thing.
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.
Good evening, Box (from air conditioned comfort).
Well, over on the other board it seems we have yet another confirmation that the TSA does in fact have an SOP for strip searches, from a former screener no less. How long before he "dissappears"?
EDIT: In trying to figure out what "commercial links" were removed by Cholula, I deduced Bill was adding a link to this website, which you may have seen before.
He's probably on his way to Gitmo as we speak.
Off to Denver via Nowhere*.
*Known to some as Nebraska.
I've driven though Nebraska! Be sure to see the... uh... well at least the speed limit is like 95 MPH or something there.
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.
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.
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.
Sorry to drag up some old posts, but .....
Well I do have a alter ego FB account that could be used
turn on the faucet, cause here comes the sarcasm.... Aw poor baby, do we need to put a waaaambulance on stand-by for him <gets out mop to clean up the dripping sarcasm>
I forgot that we had a Penalty Box! Hopefully I'm not sent to the private screening room for my punishment
