AssAsInAssassin: Slaxl: Seemed appropriate.

Since when is a potentially time-wasting YouTube video with no hint as to its contents or relevance "appropriate?"

Pretty much any time a Farker posts a so-called "obligatory" link, it's to YouTube. Since YouTube doesn't include a title or any other useful information in the URL, I never waste my time clicking on the link. For all I know it's a RickRoll.

/Got that off my chest.
//Seriously: stop doing that.


lol, you so crazy. It wasn't obligatory, just when I read the article the first thing that went through my head was Blane saying "what the fark", so it seemed appropriate.

Also

AssAsInAssassin: Also: Are you aware you can imbed the farking video in the farking post? Fark you if you're too lazy or incompetent or inconsiderate to do that.


No. I don't think you can embed videos into the post. God help us all if you can. One of the good things about Fark is none of the embedded videos and massive signatures of other websites, or the horrible structure of Reddit. It's clean and straight forward.

You're just cranky.

President Merkin Muffley: untaken_name: President Merkin Muffley: Archimedes' Principal: I would think that if enough people would refuse to use any transportation that required a TSA 'physical', the airline industry would use its influence to put the kibosh on this security theater insanity.

/ Money talks.

I would think that the airline industry would simply then expend political capital to ram an individual flight mandate down our throats.

Do they have any left after the bailouts?

The TSA is huge, unionized and dependent upon the airlines. I think they might have some.


Dependent on the airlines? Hell, no. They're riding the citybus now. That's in addition to Greyhound and Amtrak rolling over and playing dead for them. Why do they care how you're traveling? They'll get to grope you no matter how you travel.

Deep Contact: Don't like the gropin. Stop flying.


Yeah just ride the bus.

Oops, I guess you better take the train.

Oh, hmm. Well, take the City bus to the mall, and forget about traveling. That oughta keep the TSA away.

DOH.

Look in the ass. They always be hidin' they boxcutters up the poop chute. Do it. Do it right there in front of god and everyone else. We demand to be entertained.

Most problems with politics could be fixed that way...look at what happened in Iceland.

Good luck getting the sheeple to listen to you and bother to act on the information though.

LOTN: mikewadestr:
/ you're probably right, however, about the pedos
// those assholes go for any job that allows them contact with children


The TSA's caught quite a few pedos in its ranks...

Given the TSA hiring practices and general level of incompetence, one has to assume it's riddled with them.

Even if they're not there for the kiddies, they can be there for the hot chicks, etc.

moothemagiccow: The dumb part is that flying was relatively convenient right after 9/11.


And dirt cheap, too,

The only reason we have the TSA is that Americans are terrified of the word "profiling."

It's how it's done in Israel, and it's not as simple as "you're an Arab, go directly to jail."

Oh, balls (no one in TSA has ever touched mine). We travel a lot. We walk through security, having previously ensured a smooth passage by divesting our persons & carryons of any crap that's going to ring a gong somewhere (plenty of links online to making a checklist). All the scanner paranoia is just that. Scanner takes less than 30 seconds, most of the time neither of us gets scanned.

/it's as difficult as you want to make it

Bontesla: xynix: Bontesla: xynix: I'm TSA precheck so I don't have to deal with the morons as often as I used to but I've never been in a TSA scanner nor will I ever go into one. Before they pat me down I ask for their full name and identification number which inevitably leads to "why do you need that?" And I simply reply that if they touch an inappropriate area I will file a -civil- lawsuit against them personally.

No one has ever touched me inappropriately. Except my girlfriend.. and 2 previous wives.

What you didn't realize was that your two ex-wives and your current girlfriend work for the TSA. And you think you're clever.

Holy wow you're hot. You also have red hair which adds wow points.. AND you're in Atlanta.. How about Verde in Brookhaven on Tuesday?

Er. Uhm. Thank you. Jeepers. Thank you. :)
I'm also married.


At the drop of a hat he was willing to ask you out, despite having just mentioned his gf (and having her picture in his profile).

Somehow I don't think the fact that you're married would bother him.

My recommendation - do it, but bring the hubby along. Then sit back and enjoy the hilarity.

/I suspect your husband is a very lucky man

hootkr: Judges are just people. Their opinions matter just as much to me as you farkers' opinions. Keep giving up your rights you farking idiots.


Judges are just people, so why should it be, you would want to take all of my rights from me.

dprathbun: xynix.

Nozzle or bag? You decide.


Nozzle

The bag itself is clean and holds the cleansing materials. The nozzle is dirty since it's inserted into a nasty snatch to flush out the contaminants.
 
2012-10-24 10:23:58 AM
Don't wanna be groped by the TSA? Here's a rather interesting though.. don't go to the farking airport!!

Go drive, ride the bus, train, whatever.

xynix: shiat .. why is this being greenlit.

I just wanted to be part of this epic thread.

Can I get that blonde chick's number from your profile, for the next time I have a layover in ATL?


That was pretty cool, eh?

You know what happens to girls on the internets?

There are no girls on the internets.

ThatGuyOverThere:
I tell them to skip the speech because I'm used to it already. I tell them that the whole process is silly, they usually agree. I tell them I came in freshly washed closes and that I use a special backpack for travel because I go to "the range" on the weekend and my other backpacks will all set off their machines.


Yep. Small talk and look as bored with it as they are and it is relatively harmless. After having my briefcase checked for 30 minutes due to being the in the same rooms with my guns (I hunt) I do the same about the backpack/briefcase.

It also helps that all my stuff is tagged with identifying stickers and plates as own by the State Gov. I work for. Their gunpowder sniffing machine is pretty freakin' sensitive though. At least I know that one piece of equipment works.

So. I get through with a minimum of hassle despite tossing the gunpowder alarms. Next lane over a college student making his rights known gets held off his flight over a BOOK. A book about bomb making that he is determined he will fight to the death over instead of just explaining who he is and letting them check the rest of his stuff. Airport Theater is the best.

With all this Security Theater and Groping, I would atleast like to get a complimentry Playbill and maybe a dinner before I ever fly again.

Yep. Mea culpa. I do get sick of all the blind YouTube links, but I stepped out of line. And, yes, I was pretty cranky last night.

Peace out.

I'm also married.

considering he has a girlfriend, I don't think your husband is an ethical issue for him.

But it is important to me. Totally committed.

You know I've been on fark several years and never seen some dude just completely out of the blue try to pick some girl up that blatantly. Except Grable's Daughter who apparently is soliciting that kind of thing.


Same. I originally joined about a decade ago under Tantalea03 (forever a lurker). I started posting when I started to hate my job.

Xynix sometimes sounds arrogant or overconfident, and some farkers have pegged him as needing to be at the gym in 26 minutes. Here however we should give credit because after his hilarious and seemingly genuine upset at seeing the thread greenlighted, and after Bontesia had prettily declined, he trolled his own thread by doubling down on the come-on, and some people bought it.
