Alonjar: While its important to maintain a professional and courteous demeanor, I really dont see why an urn would be exempt from require screening. Its I like allowing mothers to bring a large amount of liquid baby formula on a plane exempting them from the liquid ban. Rules like these dont work if they have exceptions.

Baconaise: One more reason to let the airports handle security. TSA agents get away with crap that would get a private sector employee fired in a heartbeat.

The TSA is the reason I'm driving 1000 miles to Orlando next month instead of flying.


In December 2008, I made that drive. However, it was 1,112 miles each way for us. We did have plane tickets purchased, since it was 18 hours of driving each way. I cancelled the tickets 5 days before we were scheduled to leave and took a couple of unpaid days to cover the drive instead.

Why would I do that? Because the week before, I'd had to fly to the west coast for business. As I changed planes in San Diego, I was forced to go outside the terminal to catch a shuttle over to the commuter aircraft. In turn, this meant I had to be re-screened by the TSA (I tried to book direct from DFW to LAX, but nothing was available). My single carry-on consisted of a rolling computer bag with my mobile office in it. I was headed to Los Angeles to demonstrate this prototype. Other than sending the computer portion through the TSA checkpoint in a separate container, TSA at DFW had no issues with the rest of the bag. At the San Diego commuter terminal, the agent decided, after sending the bag through once, that she needed to take everything out of the bag and put it in bins to run it through the X-ray. I watched anxiously as this government employee unpacked my bag and sent $5,000 in equipment down the line, piece by piece. The bag came down the line last and I got everything back in as quick as I could in order to make my flight, as there was only a 30 minute layover in San Diego.

It wasn't until I got to the car rental agency in Los Angeles that I realized there was something missing from my bag. I went through the bag three times and could not find the case that held my Ray-Ban sunglasses. Ray-Bans are pricy enough to start with, but these were no-line bifocals with ultra-dark lenses. I called the TSA management at San Diego, I filed a claim for the loss and I headed to the nearest Lens Crafters to see if I could get a replacement while I was in Los Angeles. Since my tickets to Orlando were refundable, I went ahead and cancelled them to cover the cost of the replacement glasses.

One advantage to driving to Orlando was obvious on the trip back; my daughter discovered the best time to encourage my partner to go hit the shops at Downtown Disney was right after happy hour. We ended up returning with an additional six suitcases full of stuffed Disney characters. The savings on the bag fees alone paid for the gas on that trip.

I am opposed to vigilante justice on general principles.

However, I wouldn't shed any tears if TSA workers were tracked down at home and beaten to within an inch of their lives, or tarred and feathered, or even had their heads forcibly shaved.

They're collaborators, and deserve the same fate as the Quislings and Vichy did.

MattyFridays: My idea is simple, and I'm going to post it in every TSA thread possible.

Staff TSA with former military coming home who are looking for jobs.


/well trained
//handle orders to the letter
///can spot terrorists


Silly citizen. The TSA isn't there to add security. It's a jobs program for the low class fools that never got an education or any real experience. It always was a jobs program. Don't believe me? Look at the TSA job postings. Preference given for GEDs and low income history. NO preference given for security personnel with real training and skills.

Also, I totally agree. But the TSA really just needs to go away. We don't need nazi's at the gates, we need a couple of ex-soldiers in street cloths. I feel sorry for anyone that tries to smuggle a weapon on board when the security is provided by former marines. Also saves a lot of money on trials and prison.

We have a ton of cameras where I work. We only ever look at the tapes after the fact. Even if there was some dude in a back room staring at a wall full of monitors, do you think he'd be able to watch every little move that everyone made? Consider, also, that the employees likely know where the cameras are and what the cameras can see. Turn just so and your body blocks the camera.

the801: people still fly on commercial airplanes? they have cars now, guys. and boats, and buses. why would anyone submit to this kind or thing in order to take a plane?


Let's use my trip this weekend as an example:

Driving from Seattle to Las Vegas is 1,184 miles each way. My Jeep gets about 18 MPG on highways, and if the cost of gas is $3.65 per gallon, this would cost me about $480 in gas alone.

My plane ticket cost me $450, and I'm going first class because I used a companion voucher ($100), and split the total ticket cost with a friend.

Not to mention that Map Quest estimates that the drive will take me over 18 hours each way, so I would have to waste extra vacation time for that.

And yes, I could rent a Prius, but the cost of the rental is still going to nail me....not to mention that I'm still paying for it while it sits in the hotel parking structure.

So what about taking a bus?

The cheapest price I found on Greyhound was $307. Yes, it's cheaper than my plane ticket, but I would be wasting A LOT of my time, and would have to use more vacation days for my trip.

In other words, flying is worth it in my case.

The TSA once offered me a free MacBook Air. They were pulling people out of the line for some extra theater (myself included) while continuing to shove bags onto the conveyor until bins started falling off the far end. An agent picked the laptop up off the ground just as I got there to catch my bag, and he asked me if the laptop was mine. The rightful owner was busy being groped somewhere else so I could have easily said 'yes' and headed off into the crowd.

Let me ask you something, if you had to submit your wallet for any kind of search where it was out of your sight for even a small amt of time, how long afterwards do you figure it would take you to realize there was money missing from it?

/CSB

Uhhh...at what point would they get a chance to do that? With the X-ray machines in Denver, the only chance a TSA agent would have to do that is if they actually grab your pan or purse after it goes through, which they tell you that they're doing. You're usually standing there looking at your stuff after it runs through the bulk of it.

Also that person probably walked off with the laptop because some retard left it there. There's an average of about 35-40 laptops left at the screening area in ATL alone per month.

For those who are saying that this cannot possibly happen.

Link

(long story short, someone... not TSA, saw the unattended item as a passenger was going through the machine more than once and snagged whatever they could from the bin)

Do some Google-Fu and you'll find TSA agents who've done this as well. Since this is FARK, I'll give you a freebie Link

If you have something valuable, either leave it at home or conceal it while you travel. Common sense.


I'm not naive enough to say that theft never happens there, but I was mostly making a specific remark about Denver in particular just because I work here and I know how the security lines are set up.

Plus, seriously people, be smart about it. Don't push your crap through the X-ray machine until you're next in line to walk through the screener. That way you have your eyes on your stuff as soon as it comes out through the machine.

Plus I usually throw my wallet/keys/phones into my carry-on bag and zip it up before I run it through.

Baconaise: Jument: Baconaise: Hyppy: theorangeshield: Baconaise:The TSA is the reason I'm driving 1000 miles to Orlando next month instead of flying.

You're joking? You would rather drive 1000 miles because you don't want to go through an x-ray machine?

Yes. To avoid spending hours standing in line to to get groped, I will absolutely drive 1000 miles.

The Orlando TSA douchenuggets are the main reason I'm driving 500 miles each way instead of flying next week, though it's a bit more economical since we'll have 4 people in the car.

Pretty much break even for me money-wise. (There are 2 of us going). Driving takes longer, but you can pack more stuff, the scenery is better, and the seats are more comfortable.

For what it's worth, nobody ever stands for "hours" in a security line. On a very bad day I would say that a security line could be >30 minutes but still under 60 minutes. And it would never be "hours" (i.e. 2 hours or more) outside of an extreme disaster scenario.

I understand your point but when you exaggerate like that you detract from your arguments.

For what it's worth, a round trip with over an hour on each end does add up to "hours". I always allow 90 minutes for the security line, so I know I have plenty of time in case there's a hold up. Technically, I may not stand in line for the whole 90 minutes, but its still an hour and a half of sleep I didn't get that morning.


Fair enough. I also allow quite a lot of time, just in case. But I view the time behind the security line as a mini-vacation. I take stuff to read that I wouldn't normally have time to read and honestly I rather enjoy the quiet time. I guess it depends on how you view it.

I also hate driving. Time behind the wheel is unproductive and wasted, to me, but YMMV.

/CSB

I have wondered if they do this. Even though your personal belongings only take a minute at most to pass through the X-ray machine, I still worry about some sly bastard quickly grabbing something.

My current method to try and limit their chances of getting my cash is to put most of my cash in a paper envelope deep in my rucksack beneath some other stuff. Then, since my wallet still has some in it I will usually try and bury my wallet in my rucksack before I get to the X-ray machine. I also try and 'follow' my stuff. So I kinda walk alongside the conveyor belt with it and try and wait until it goes into the machine before I go through the metal detector.

I figure I can't do much more than that. I did once try and have the cash in a plastic ziplock inside my sock. The only thing with that was I wondered if they might notice it and class it as suspicious so I thought probably better not to risk trying that approach. It worked the one time I did it but I don't know if I'd try it again.


Why don't you just keep your cash in your pants pocket? I mean, paper money won't set off the metal detector, and if you get patted down (or opt-out of the body scanner), then you just demand that ALL of your stuff be within close visual range so you won't lose it.

ChipNASA: lemurs: Worthless security theater strikes again.

It does nothing to keep anyone safer and hassles thousands of passengers daily, but politicians refuse to kill it for fear of being seen as "soft on terror".

YOU'RE WRONG!!!

" Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed in an ABC News/Washington Post poll said they supported the Transportation Security Administration"

Wait a minute... How many lines are you going to put in the water? Sheesh... You're not leaving much room for others.

tonguedepressor: Riesling is awfully sweet isn't it?


It ranges from sweet to semi-sweet, depending on the grape and the winery.


The_Sponge: EIP......I'm a club member and can get you a free tasting.....of the good stuff, not the stuff they give the riff-raff.


Got it. I almost joined last time I was there. Will hit you up before my next bootlegging run.

LessO2: theorangeshield: Having a SIDA badge doesn't allow me to bypass security screenings if I'm getting on a flight. I have to sit in line and get fondled and oogled like everyone else.

Yeah, sure. I have seen wayyyy to many SIDA badge holders stay in uniform at the checkpoint, only to change on the other side to avoid the lines, the scanners, the liquid lunacy and the shoe removal.


Not sure what SIDA controlled airport you were looking at. Uniform or not, if you're going through security and you have boarding pass, you have to get screened like everyone else.

This is suspect, even for an anecdote. I've been through my share of airport security checkpoints (including Denver), and it would be next to impossible for anyone to take something without a high risk of being seen- probably by the owner.
