but it's NOT political ... it's NOT !!!

Smithers turned me on to this piece by T. Greene discussing the feasibility of mixin' up some TATP (triacetone triperoxide) to be used by the UK bomb plotters ...

After a few hours [of mixing the components] - assuming, by some miracle, that the fumes haven't overcome you or alerted passengers or the flight crew to your activities - you'll have a quantity of TATP with which to carry out your mission. Now all you need to do is dry it for an hour or two.

no, the kitty post didn't get to stay on top long enough!

We had a stripper over the other night that insisted on calling her junk "kitty". It was very difficult to get excited when she would scold us, saying "...ah ah ah, no kitty..."

I caught that one too on the nerd grapevine.

The security measures only seem to serve as some sort of assurance to a worried public.  The hair gel lobby must be somehow involved.

OK, here's what I want to know: wtf is up with these women on TV complaining about having to throw away $800 in cosmetics before getting on the plane? I don't know much about cosmetics, but isn't that a crapload of stuff? Do these women's faces truly melt off to such a degree between santa fe and burmingham that they've got to be ready at all times?

Gotta say that as overblown as the whole thing may be, if it keeps people from bringing a crapload of stuff on the plane carry-on, WE ALL WIN (I hate those gigantic rolling bag MF'ers who stuff their freaking gee-tar and suitcase over my head).

There was a great letter to the editor here yesterday in the Reno Gazette Journal (which Olaf can testify is a bastion of great thinkers):

I have an idea for security checks at airports that will reduce delays: All passengers should simply be required to remove all of their clothing before boarding and fly completely naked. All of their luggage and clothes should be towed in a "jet glider" hundreds of yards behind the plane, and, if anything blows up, it won't hurt anybody.

I know I wouldn't have a problem with this. I am not ashamed of my body, and almost every time I fly I see someone who I would like to see naked. I'm sure this will be true on future flights.

I hope the Homeland Security people will consider this.
