Q: Why is TSA sexually assaulting backscatter opt-outs? A: As punishment. I asked him if he was looking forward to conducting the full-on pat-downs. “Nobody’s going to do it,” he said, “once they find out what we’re going to do. [...] That’s what we’re hoping for. We’re trying to get everyone into the machine.” http://whitewraithe.wordpress.com/2010/11/15/tsa-agent-admits-groping-pat-down-coercion-violates-section-802-of-us-patriot-act/ Q: What would real security look like? A: The Israeli preflight interview system “We have to use body search and body scanners only against seriously suspicious passengers,” he said. Yeffet indicated that it is unnecessary to search innocent people, which he said make up about 99.9 percent of air travelers. http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/full-body-scanners-are-illusion-security

Actually, the Israelis think TSA is totally useless. They do not in fact use invasive screenings in Israel unless you really blow the interview portion. A lot of people in this thread want to know "what else can we do"? We could do what the Israelis do, which is to *not* make their security a shitshow fail parade: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/full-body-scanners-are-illusion-security Of course, that would mean we would need smart, trained TSA agents instead of the failed-the-USPS-exam nosepickers we have now.

That's the one. My favorite of Moore's shorter projects.

I've always been more of a Marvel reader, but I have nothing against DC, I just grew up on the Claremont/Byrne/Austin X-Men, Miller/Janson Daredevil era, which kicked eleventeen kinds of ass. I no longer have the patience to read monthly serials so I stick to collected books when I can. I agree with the praise for Bendis. Ultimate Spider-Man is now "the real" Spider-Man for me. If I see Joe Quesada, I will shout "it's a brand new day!" and punch him in the cock. And I am still pissed at Jeph Loeb for fucking up the Ultimate Universe just because it totally disrupted Ultimate Spidey in a stupid and pointless way. Feh. I get the impression not enough people read SMAX, I never hear it mentioned and it totally ruled. You know what was especially awesome? NEXUS by Baron and Rude. Great stories, incredible art. I read the entire B&W trade collection of BONE in one day. Couldn't put it down. What an accomplishment! (Jeff Smith making it, not me reading it) Damn, now I want to re-read Transmet. (Yip-ay-aye!) I may be some kind of nerd. I'll have to check.

The cowardly douchenozzle has scrubbed all the negative comments from the thread for the book. I hope s/he realizes s/he has pissed off the wrong group of people.

Robotron Tempest Donkey Kong Jr. Ms. Pac Man - cocktail table Runners up: Centipede - cocktail table Zaxxon Battlezone Pole Position MAME is great even without a cabinet; I got a Saitek P880 dual-stick gamepad and Robotron rocks as hard as ever. The gameplay, controls and sound create such an intense experience, and it's beautiful in its simplicity. Making the humans invulnerable to the hero's blaster was a stroke of genius. To think that the same guys who invented this also created Defender...mind-boggling. That game has held up *so* well. People will still be playing it in 2084.

It saddens me that no one seems to come prepared for this. You tuck a squirt gun into your sock. You prepare it so that a single squirt delivers about a thousand micrograms of street Acid. (Be sure to put it in a Ziploc bag or this can backfire!) If you're in luck, the fuckhead near you will self-identify during the opening set. Here's the trick: you don't want them to be able to finger you in the 45 minutes or so they have before the psychotomimetic drug takes effect. Get up like you're going to the john, then come back a bit later in the row BEHIND the target fuckhead. It helps to be holding a cup of beer at this point. Feigning drunkenness, spill a bit of beer on the target's left shoulder while simultaneously giving them several squirts from the gun on any exposed skin. Then fade back into the crowd for a few minutes before approaching your seat from the other side of the correct row, reclaim your seat, and sit down to await results. Since you know the concert would have been ruined anyway, you can at least enjoy the psychotic breakdown experienced by the inconsiderate shitbag who WOULD NOT FUCKING SHUT UP. And now at least they are entertaining, in as much as they CANNOT shut up about the lizard monkeys eating their eyes. It's important to get your dollar's worth when going out for entertainment.

Sounds like Nolan needs to go to Prince's Hot Chicken and order the Extra Hot. THAT's a man's dish. Heh.

While you're vegging out, go check out the T-Shirt Contest winners over at Coulton's site. JoCo fandom f*ckin' OWNS. I think I just got over that cold. My brain kept bringing up your "chicken liver" comment from your post-surgery Surgery Post whenever I blew my nose. Damn you, Wheaton! Feel better, dude. You're due.

Wow. Good discussion all around. Congratulations on having such a functional family -- some of us don't.

So is that Aaron Copeland or Stewart Copeland? And is listening to Boingo and Skynyrd conducive to quietly resting your reconstructed skull parts? I always get physical with most of their tunes... (I know, nag, nag, nag, damn Internets)

This is obviously some sort of plot to keep you from the sweet, sweet Guinness. Probably the British again -- first they drive Alan Moore insane with cheap NHS hallucinogens, and now this. Seriously, though, don't get discouraged -- they just rebuilt your head, and now you're on the shakedown cruise. The great thing about reading is that you can do it with one eye closed...
