    Abolish TSA and I will feel a whole lot safer. The FAA regs worked for years.

    I know for a fact that cargo isn't screened.

    How do I know? As a non-Trusted Shipper I argued my way into shipping cargo. It went on the next flight, and of 15 boxes, not one was screened.

    Not to be too personal barbell, but would the volume inside those 15 boxes exceed, say the space behind one's testicles--that area Bart and company are so keen to feel under for male pax?

    I have done the same thing more then a few times with pelican cases with photo equipment and firearms (cases marked as such, no decleration). Walked in with the cases ready to go, locked, and security sealed, paid the fees in cash. On the other end the cases had not been tampered with at all and were not x-rayed as the radiation detectors had not changed. So needless to say TSA isnt checking cargo, so there saying cargo is a 100% screened is BS.

    Well, in the interest of the community I don't mind you digging into this issue.

    To be honest, the volume was just barely largely than the area behind my own testicles, I can't speak for everyone else.

    I know they weren't screened because it was during the time of the big toner cartridge scare, so I took a toner cartridge, attached some wires to it, and put baby powder in/on/around it. If the TSA is so great at keeping explosives off of planes, they should've at least given the 3 I hid amongst the boxes a second look, no?
