dustygrimp: My neighbors are hipsters. It's like a theater of the absurd.
lemortede: I read about this a few days ago and at the time though that the TSA is over reacting.I hate how difficult it is to travel with your possessions.This is the first time i have seen a picture of the watch.I am forced to ask WTF was he thinking.If I saw that watch I would think the same thing...bomb.This guy is a idiot.
inglixthemad: Are hipsters sort of like Urban Rednecks?
dustygrimp: inglixthemad: Are hipsters sort of like Urban Rednecks?No. In my experience, rednecks tend to be tough, relatively.
Fizpez: Lets see, lets just say you wanted to build a watch that would so incredibly obviously scream "I AM A BOMB" to even the most unsophisticated and uneducated idiot on the planet it would look.... pretty much like what they guy was wearing... not surprised he got detained. Hope he enjoyed the cavity search.... and maybe that's what he was after all along.
Smackledorfer: all the TSA agents are, a very large percentage of which are ex-military.
ChaoticLimbs: It's a free country, until you decide to do something different than what everyone else is doing. Then it VERY quickly stops being a free country. Like, if you're gay it doesn't feel like a free country, or if you're a swinger, or if you like to dress strangely, or have a mohawk, or are brown-skinned. In any of those cases, it doesn't feel very free at all. But it's a free country.Freedom to do what pleases the government and makes everyone around you comfortable is granted in even the most oppressive gulags in the world. The defining "free" moment is when you can zig while everyone else zags, and nobody is harmed, not even you.
The Flexecutioner: dustygrimp: inglixthemad: Are hipsters sort of like Urban Rednecks?No. In my experience, rednecks tend to be tough, relatively.well, the urban rednecks of the emasculated male generation?
lordjupiter: The comments critical of the TSA on this (including in the article) are asinine. IMO
Bedurndurn: You know looking at that, I don't blame the TSA idiot for asking the bomb squad to find out what the hell is going on with that.

vudukungfu: lordjupiter:The comments critical of the TSA on this (including in the article) are asinine. IMOYou are entitled to you opinion.You are also entitled to STFU when people complain about losing their bill of rights.Even if only to let their freak flags fly.
archichris: , I can hijack a plane with a fake bomb. No fake bombs allowed.
detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: Get a brain moran./collect watches, would never own something so stupid.
Smackledorfer: Also I enjoy the fact that we have a thread going about how much respect soldiers deserve and another thread going on about how retarded all the TSA agents are, a very large percentage of which are ex-military. Its a rather amusing inconsistency.
