    I think that it is questionable science but this falls under reasonable suspicion for me. If someone seems to be acting peculiar I might mention it to someone. It depends on how peculiar one is acting. It is a gray area. Where is the line between reasonable concern and paranoia?

    I think if you kept male Arabs off airplanes, that would go a long way toward solving the problem. But we won't do that, so my advice is that we all STFU about "terrorism" and how we're going to stop it. We aren't. You can either have political correctness or safety, not both.

    Who cares?----if they screw up some innocent persons life for awhile they will be sued and fired. If they bust a terrorist they outta get a million dollar reward.

    Abso-fucking-lutly!

    Saw a show last night on facial expresstion and what they communicate etc.
    Think about it, it's a major part of communication.

    Anyway they ran a test on detecting lies via facial expression, all groups could do no better identifying a lie than just chance, except one group they called spies. That group ID'd 80% of the lyre's. Works for me.

    Sweet Jesus and Buddha on a swing...EVERYBODY is disgusted, to one degree or another, about being in an airport. And, for the love of God, what about the agoraphobics...? Fear of flying...? Fear of having some TSA employee doing a body cavity search because they didn't like the way you look at them. What utter bullshit.

    So those people who are running late for their flights, and have that helpless look of frustration on their face as they try and make it through the terminal on time, are now going to be scrutinized by some airport face-gestapo...AWESOME. Maybe they'll be stopped and harrassed just long enough to completely miss their flights.

    If i'm a little shaky bout flying to begin with, and i have that look of uneasiness on my face, i'm now a target for the gestapo to harrass me because i may be planning something...AWESOME.

    This shit is utterly ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as when they were confiscating people's liquids that could potentially be explosive, and pouring them all into one big container.

    The fucking genious of these people never ceases to amaze me. And you guys are ACCEPTING it, because you think it makes you safer.

    I hope one of you who is ok with this gets stopped and harrassed by some fat TSA official on your way to your gate because you didn't stop to piss, and your face is whincing, and you miss your flight.

    Cavity search ?--Did you have to throw that in for some hysterical hyperbole or did it sound like something you were interested in applying for?
