On April 14, I traveled, by bicycle, to a local mall to purchase a new pair of shorts. I left my backpack locked up with my bicycle outside of one of the mall entrances.

I suspect that the same action, were it undertaken today, would result in a bomb squad detonating my backpack and bicycle.

You know the next step is a fake babbie in a stroller. The up side, is that if a terrorist employs some form of fake babbie to blow up things, we won't have to hear the crying on airplanes anymore. Always look on the bright side, ya know?

2013-05-26 06:49:47 PM  
That whole mess still stinks. Had to lock down tens of thousands of people to find one unarmed, injured teen. And then, the gestapo still doesn't find him; an observant citizen does. And, outside the "search area" at that. And then, what do they do? Shoot the boat into splinters, accomplishing exactly nothing except for perhaps achieving mass- erection. The kid still lived, and somebody still had to go drag him out of a now worthless boat. Even in their search, some things still didn't add up. Guns drawn and pointed at them, innocent citizens are pulled from the homes they've been "voluntarily" confined to and bodily searched. Really? I mean, REALLY?!? I almost wish I had been there and been searched, so I could have told them, "Hey! If you're looking for a terrorist in my pants, he's around front!" But, I'd have probably gotten shot for calling attention to their idiocy.

Normally, I hate all the "greatest generation" crap.  In WW2, people had to recycle rubber, silk stockings, steel, cooking grease because that shiat was in short supply for the war effort. People bought war bonds. If you ride in your car alone, you were riding with Hitler.

Seriously. Just did the Half today in Ottawa and I can say they weren't stupid about it. They did warn if you showed up with one it may (may) be searched but to be honest I didn't have any issues getting in. You would never have known two dumbasses had blown up 2 bombs in Boston a month and a half ago. And look no one died.

I would rather have the uncertainty of someone bringing something dangerous to the race than deal with TSA-level tomfoolery.

Not the same thing at all. That was rationing because the war took over the economy. People weren't shiatting their pants every time their neighbor whipped out an umbrella.

You would have made a better argument if you said that at least we aren't locking away everyone of certain nationalities like we did with the Japanese back then.

I might or might not have a messenger bag I've been toting for a year now. In my defense, I was bicycle riding for a while, and didn't feel like getting expensive/bulky panniers, and for a few months I've been motorcycle riding, and didn't feel like getting bulky/expensive saddle bags, and sure as hell wasn't going to leave a laptop bag just sort of casually drapped across my seat (work mandates I tote the laptop back and forth home to work).

I love the bag, it's roomy enough to smuggle a bieber in (or a laptop, shorts/shirt/shoes, various cables and work tools, a soda, and random misc, or a full week of groceries for a single dude), but man I'm tired of having to carry a farking murse everywhere. I don't see how or why women do that shiat. It's obnoxious.

2013-05-27 09:17:04 AM  
Maybe its a generational thing, but I don't get all the need for backpacks anyways. I use to go to school and all, but I never had to act like I was going on a hike to the middle of the forest each time. We have a student living with us who can not leave the house without taking everything he owns on his back.

After the Boston Marathon, as I watch the crowds leaving, I saw many 20 and 30 year old's with backpacks. I thought after what just happened that things would have to change like it or not. Frankly I don't care if people don't like it, leave the damn things at home....buy that drink at the spot of carry ONLY what you just need and can carry more or less out in the open....So yes, I support backpacks being restricted in large gatherings...Wish it didn't have to be that way, but safety first, or the best chance of reassuring it
