Fano: Caffienatedjedi: Can we see what happens when a bomb goes off at a security checkpoint? I almost want to see the reaction to that, though it may be so stupid I'd rather not experience it.Something I realised, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, is that Americans don't care about genuine security. We often undermine real security measures, or reject them. No, Americans like the measures that give a feeling of security, but do absolutely nothing. If we fear armed robbery, we limit the legal weapons. If we fear theft, we get fancy locks but forget about the windows. If we fear terrorists, we dig through everyones luggage and arrest brown people. In the end, it doesn't stop anyone, it just looks like it does. Now if you'll excuse me, I have this fancy rock of Tiger Protection to sell.Do you have a poorly xeroxed newsletter that I can subscribe to?
