Find The Boots

Rantings from a few corporate types about life, technology, travel, guns, politics, and everything good in the world.

Kim, Thanks!

Stolen in its whole bloggy goodness from Kim DuToit.

Having just been subjected to the tender mercies of the TSA at a couple of airports, allow me to make a modest suggestion.

If we catch a terrorist before he manages to board a plane, his punishment should be to be strapped upright to an X-shaped frame which forces his legs apart. Then, every time an airline passenger is subjected to a “close” search (ie. near-strip search), an electronic pulse is sent from the airport to the prison, and thence to a machine which delivers a precise blow to the terrorist’s genitals.

Cruel?—Yes.

Unusual?—I prefer to call it “inventive”.

Fitting?—Absolutely.

We could test the system on would-be Shoe Bomber Richard Reid, triggered each time somone has to take off his shoes at an airport checkpoint.

He wouldn't mind if you laughed. Wistfully.
