MFAWG: RacySmurff: doosh: Oooooh they had Hand-Held NUCLEAR Detection Devices !![checks ebay for the price on a geiger counter]Wow, the feds blew a whole c-note on each of these devices. Im-pressssed!!Clearly you don't know much about the workings of our wonderful bureaucracy. I'm sure the government gets them wholesale. So they probably cost $13,000 +/+ (read plus or plus) $20,000 or so.Why would anybody charge 20k for 100 dollar geiger counter?

FFS, our most badass special forces teams are named after this:[ec.europa.eu image 450x297]Seals are badass. I bet you would lose a fight with one in hand to hand combat.Yeah, but if you turn the tables the difference in abilities is just as apparent. Ask a SEAL to solve a polynomial equation sometime and see what happens.
Just Another OC Homeless Guy: edmo: First time I ever saw "elite" and TSA in the same sentence.Composed exclusively of TSA employees who have graduated High School. Sort of reminds me of those Barry Sadler lyrics: "One hundred men will test today, but only three win the green beret...."
DrBrownCow: Nefarious: Are they coming to vipe the vindows?It's been around 25 years since I saw that episode and I immediately knew the reference.
