    Ah, I know what to do.

    I'm an overweight woman who's very, very hairy.

    I'll let my fur grow out until my flight. I'm going to wear a low-cut swimsuit and insist on a pat-down rather than being subjected to radiation.

    We need to gang up on KDude and accuse him of being Macedonia-Martian and have him patted down. Like right now. We're NOT safe from his kind. Whatever his kind is. Whenever we figure it out. Eventually.

    More food for thought - airline pilots are criticizing body scans as well as current policy:

    Personally, I think standard TSA security should apply to pilots and crew (as well as other TSA employees) just like 'regular passengers'. Sucks to be treated like the hoi polloi though, I know.

    I still don't see what's stopping someone from sticking C4 up his bum.

    What's next, cavity searches?

    I guess the least invasive thing to do would be to get a bomb-sniffing dog to sniff your bum. Getting your bum sniffed by a dog is a bit awkward, I suppose, but it's not really invasive and certainly not unusual for dogs to sniff bums.

    But wait! If we had bomb-sniffing dogs at security, we wouldn't need these machines in the first place! And then we'd have to actually hire trained people to do an actually good job of handling actual trained dogs instead of some minimum wage employee with 40 minutes of training to look at your dangly parts and feel you up without adequate warrant! We can't have that!

    Why on earth would we search a pilot? They control the aircraft. They don't need a bomb or a weapon to destroy it.

    I vote for more accurate profiling. That's the best way. Let's face it, there is NO REASON for the TSA to pat my mother down. ever. yet it's happened several times. WTF?

    Actually, I think I have a better idea.

    Can the TSA kick you out of the airport if they put their hands up your skirt and they come back bloody?

    I think, and I'm being serious, only women should be allowed to do these pat down checks and perhaps the whole security process. If it were only women in charge, I think everyone would be a lot happier with these invasive security measures... groping or no groping.
