And to think I couldn't hate them any more than I already did...
FUCK YOU TSA. FUCK. YOU.
Where does the 7 out of 10 stat come from? I have a feeling that one is kind of bullshit.
yeah I got that too. How does one go about measuring that?
right?! i mean, if the weapons are missed, how do they know that they missed them?
there was a study on xray technicians that showed that because they are looking at the same things over and over again they miss what they are actually looking for...
Occasionally they do tests to see how well the TSA is doing. I assume that's where the statistics come from.
The government WASTES so much money on things. It's a shame there's apparently no way to make anything the government does run efficiently.
I got stopped once waiting for my laptop bag to come out of the scanner. The guy goes, oh never mind, it's the bag after yours with the hand grenade.
I'm like WTF!? And ready to run... it was a known .. I don't know what they're called... mystery shopper? with a fake grenade in her bag.
Jesus. I about shit myself. Anyway, they must fail their own tests all the time.
Everyone knows 2 out of 10 statistics are bullshit. :-D
Really people? They listed sources at the bottom of the pic. See # 17 http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/TSA-Agent-Slips-Through-DFW-Body-Scanner-With-a-Gun-116497568.html
Also, if you use google, it is clear that there are many incidents like this. If anything I believe the stated number is a bit low.
that does not say that 7 out of 10 things go undetected. i read that too, and still dont see where they got that number. so im assuming its just made up.
I am so glad to see this... I HATE the TSA more than I hate politics sometimes.
The TSA's budget is $4 billion larger than NASA's. Now you want to fucking beat someone in politics don't you?
Thank God I live in Canada.
I second that!
If only your climate wasn't so brutally cold, Canada would be a paradise.
Well actually, we've recently had one of our warmest winters in a while.
Some people weren't actually prepared when it actually snowed.
Yes, but that's the exception, not the expectation.
this is why i teleport.
If they won't grope me, who will?
$11.38 per grope? That's a lot cheaper than a street whore.
Tell me your name is based on Matsuka from Dexter.
Of course man. He's one of my favorites.
Season 7 starts at the end of next month :D
I'm sooooo excited.
I'll bet you are.
No one likes being groped, but complaining about it is bull shit, because everyone is scrambling trying to find a way to stop the security breaches in a better way.
If you don't like the TSA, and I'm not a fan either, that's fine. Complaining about being put through annoying security checks is ridiculous though, as the purpose, while not necessarily being achieved, is to prevent another 9/11.
'Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.'
Hey great quote! Good idea! Fuck the TSA, let EVERYONE FLY!!!
" everyone is scrambling trying to find a way to stop the security breaches in a better way."
Who is everyone and in what fashion are they scrambling? You seem to have access to information that others do not.
"Complaining about being put through annoying security checks is ridiculous though, as the purpose, while not necessarily being achieved, is to prevent another 9/11."
So it's ridiculous to complain about invasive searches that border on molestation and don't work; because supposedly their hearts are in the right place (even if their hands are not)? Oh.
I'm sorry, I forgot to ask the class. Do you have a better idea friend? Tell me how we can prevent terrorist attacks without any security. I'm intrigued to finally have the answer we've all been waiting for.
There are some proposed solutions in the above image. I would post my own but you're being a massive douchebag and I get the distinct impression that my words would be wasted. I won't feel too bad about it, because you have failed to respond to my questions or even my comment in particular.
As a frequent flyer to the US from Europe I don't exactly enjoy the security screenings but to those who want them gone, what measures do YOU suggest are taken to best ensure our safety? :( I don't think there is much way around things like this, unfortunately.
Frequent flyer between US and Europe? How do you afford that??? Are you going to school in the US and your family is in Europe or something?
I live in Europe and my SO lives in the US. It sucks but we manage :(
Wow... that's one hell of a long distance relationship!
Solutions posted in graphic above.
We're already paying people to handle this. Just not the right people. 4,000 bureaucrats pulling in six figures sitting in offices in D.C. is a good use of our money how?
Usanians are too lazy and complacent to really be of any threat to the U.S. government. I've boycotted any travel to and from the U.S. until things get sorted out.
