    We've covered this subject before, but I think we missed this article. Its author seems to have a way with words ...

    Haven't we been told before that nobody will ever be asked to go through the scanner again after the first "failure?"

    And as for "horny-handed," has anyone ever seen a TSA employee who looked like they could be qualified for heavy labor?

    Were we told that? I don't know, I don't remember. Not that I would believe anything they said anyway. They wouldn't let Rand Paul go through again. And they keep shoving children through to "resolve" any "anomalies."

    What an astute recollection! I have also recall that TSA has specifically stated that it is their "policy" not to allow re-scanning when an anomoly occurs (other than children under 12). Rand Paul's encounter with TSA is a prime example.

    And, no, I don't recall ever seeing a picture nor personally observing a TSA employee (including "suits") that could be qualified for manual labor...or any other brainless, repetitive chore for that matter.

    So it's a sarcastic usage of English idiom. :D

    Nor are they qualified for chores that require brains. That doesn't leave them with much.
     
  10. With perhaps an intentional trans-oceanic double entendre?

    I noticed the article propounded another lie: That the perv booths have been eliminated from all the MMW scanners. AFAIK, there are still pervert-staffed booths at HOU. Has anyone heard any different?

    You get only one chance for regular AIT's. For ATR's you get multiple chances under certain conditions(like you moved or you were standing weird, or you're a kid).

    Then why did the TSA schmucks request the "cutie" be run through multiple times before their female co-worker called into the booth to tell them that fun-time was over? Isn't that what the TSA refers to as "AIT?" With ATR, isn't there no booth to call into?

    I saw her picture and she wasn't that cute. She was probably being re-run to avoid a full patdown, I don't think the female screener was calling "into the booth" since they don't have IO's anymore. AIT is just the scanner, ATR is the scanner with the computer upgrade which eliminates the need for a screener to analyze images.

    3 or more times is a bit excessive. I wouldn't do more than 2, especially if there's a line. I wonder if they were short on female screeners, which would've made re-running seem like a quicker resolution than waiting for a free screener. Plus it depends on what she was wearing.

    Not funny.

    But nice way to try to deflect the conversation by trying to sully the woman who was harassed.

    And she was clearly run through the scanner multiple times because it was a backscatter scanner, not MMW, therefore with no ATR software on it, and therefore her naked image was being projected to the bored pervs in the booth who were getting their jollies.

    Is the number of times a person can be scanned stated in SOP?

    I'll bet on a response of "That's SSI," as is typical for any response that either A) the TSA schmuck can't remember, or B) the real answer makes the TSA look like a bunch of schmucks - not that they need any help in that direction. "Terrorist Schmucks Associated."

    No, I'm not joking. She's not attractive. It's not "sullying" to not pretend she's beautiful when she clearly isn't.

    My bad, according to the article they use MMW. If they are using backscatter and they had her go through more than once, they violated the SOP. You get only one pass with the old scanners. Can anyone confirm what scanners they use at DFW and Love field?

    yep.

    It doesn't matter if you think she's attractive.

    It matters if the pervert peeper in the frosted booth thinks she's attractive.

    Your opinion on the matter has no bearing whatsoever...

    According to our handy dandy complete list of airports with NoS, DFW has MMW.

    This story, if I recollect correctly, is over a year old. The software "upgrade" wasn't in place at that time.
     
  21. I went back and watched the video -- she's got a body that won't quit and by certain people's standards is quite a MILF. She's just not your type, sweetie.
