Back in Cleveland

So I get to Cleveland, and of course, since I travel with lots of electronics, the TSA had to rifle through my luggage.  This is always amusing to me, because the probability of someone working for the TSA fondling underwear actually being able to tell the difference between an SVGA 8×8 Matrix Switcher (benign) and a CRM-114 Plane Destroyer (destroys planes) approaches very near zero.  But they always point out when they have been fondling your underwear by putting in a little slip of paper called “Notice of Baggage Inspection” that is poorly printed in unregistered four color with the world’s lowest resolution scan of a logo on it telling you to visit thier mostly useless website (which I am sure is where they robbed the logo from.)  But the best thing is that it is printed in English and Spanish.  Wouldn’t it make more sense to print it in English and Arabic?

It is printed with a 6.1.2004 rev number on it.  Which means that they have been using this shitty, incompetently printed notice for almost two years.

Also, it is snowing here in Cleveland.  Apparently it does this pretty regularly.  Living in a place where it snows every year for days on end is socially accepted insanity.

    That’s why it’s always good to have a baby, so you have something to warm your hands on when you come in from the cold.

    I’m not fearful. If I was fearful, I would be calling for more security that actually works, not ridiculing our non-security that we have now. I would just rather that they stopped wasting money doing nothing and do nothing for free.
